THE GRAYSCALE STORY:
In The Beginning - Let There Be Marketing
The year was 2015, and our founder Tim Gray was feeling the marketing burnout. The frustration didn’t stem from the avalanche of work or any lost love for marketing.
Instead, his frustration sprang from seeing his clients overspend for marketing services and not getting the type of results he thought possible.
He had been hiring different social media and digital marketing companies around Nashville to help the clients at his artist management firm, Grayscale Entertainment.
Agency after agency. Month after month. His clients were receiving a lot of “digital management,” yet very little marketing was actually happening, and they were suffering for it. He knew it could be better.
After countless hours of research, taking phone calls and reading one fluffed-up case study after another, he was led to a disappointing conclusion: Each agency spent their time and his client's money, talking at online fans and followers, not with them. How could this convert anyone to care about any brand?
Undeterred, he decided he would simply build a better way. Grayscale Marketing was born!
The plan was to stay focused on the social aspect of marketing and simply apply human nature to the mix. This, along with powerful data, a gift for communication and great content could make a difference.
The idea was simple:
Drive real customer/fan engagement
Show provable results consistently
Treat each client's business as his own
Essentially, he would build a team that would go the extra mile and provide the ROI he was seeking for his own clients. Then, he would offer it to the wider market.
Within the first three months of doors opening, the agency was nominated for a Facebook Advertising Award. GSM took an unsigned country music artist with a limited budget of $15 a day and created a Facebook video ad that has driven over 100,000,000 views, 94,000 likes, 475,000 shares and counting!
Over the past five years, the company has expanded to offer video production, custom animation, graphic design, branding, publicity, public relations, and more. The goal is to provide the best services and results not just in entertainment, but in any category.
