Bulldog Creative Services Acquires Snowball Digital Marketing

Huntington, W.Va., <January 20, 2016>: Advertising agencies Bulldog Creative Services and Snowball Digital Marketing announced today that a definitive agreement has been reached whereby Bulldog has acquired Snowball. The company will operate as Bulldog Creative Services with locations in Huntington and Beckley, West Virginia.

“Today is a great day for advertising and marketing in our region and our state. We have two West Virginia-based advertising agencies that each bring a wide array of expertise and experience to our customers and communities that are now able to offer an extended level of services to a much larger arena. We’re looking forward to some great new relationships in Beckley and all of Southern West Virginia,” said Chris Michael, CEO of Bulldog Creative.

The combined agencies will operate as Bulldog Creative, and both agencies are expected to continue normal operations. Team members from both operations will continue their efforts and the plan will be to add more full-time positions to both locations within the next twelve months. Both locations will offer a wide scope of services including:

  • Advertising and marketing planning
  • Web and App design
  • Public Relations
  • HD Video and Audio Production
  • Social media advertising and management
  • Media planning, negotiation and management
  • Web and software development
  • Graphic Design
  • Digital marketing services
  • Brand and Identity development

"The goal in any partnership should be to strengthen the business to better serve customers and the community. Beckley lacks the presence of a true full service ad and web agency like Bulldog. With their solid reputation and track record in the Huntington region, they make an excellent strategic and cultural fit for Snowball and Southern West Virginia going forward,” said Elmer Coppoolse, Principal of Snowball.

Both agencies commenced operations in 1999 and have experienced significant growth since that time. The various professional services offered by both provide strong results for clients across a multitude of industries, numerous U.S. and international locations and within consumer, industrial and corporate settings.

“We’re excited. This merger allows us to combine the talents of some very strong individuals and bring those talents to our clients. We’ve always believed it’s our job to put our clients and their success out front with outstanding work in advertising and marketing. This merger will broaden our ability to do so,” said Ashleigh Graham-Smith, Director of Client Services at Bulldog.
