Our Company

Small teams of growth experts working directly with clients

We hire for two core roles at Tuff. We have growth marketers who are big-picture strategists as well as channel experts who are deeply experienced in a particular type of marketing. Each account we work with is paired with a growth marketer and then at least three to five different channel experts depending on what we’re testing. Your growth marketer is your map maker and wayfinder—keeping goals clearly defined and the whole team focused on creating the smartest path to growth. Your channel experts are the in-the-weeds, watching-every-dollar-spent efficiency finders and optimizers.

How we run our growth agency and work with clients

Our bread and butter is building efficient, holistic marketing strategies. We do this with our process. We stay hungry for research, then execute to a T, consistently optimizing and refining to find maximum efficiencies. We do this with our team. Egoless and curious, we share hypotheses and findings with your team and each other to find more streamlined paths to growth. Finally, we do this with our style. Radical transparency is the name of the game. We believe that collaboration and showing our work is the only real way to build foundations to trustworthy partnerships.
