Our Story

Sagefrog Marketing Group, LLC was founded in 2002 as a two-person limited liability corporation by Mark Schmukler and Suzanne Morris through the merger of Doyle Consulting, a strategic marketing consulting firm, and Much More Creative, a graphic design studio. The name “Sagefrog” was created to symbolize the combined strategic wisdom of a sage and adaptable tactics of a frog—traits that each member of our team carries into their daily work as marketers, account managers, copywriters and designers. Sagefrog was formed on its strong competencies of strategy, branding and creative and is dedicated to being a company that clients value and a place that thrives on positivity and a high quality of life.

Since our founding, Sagefrog has experienced continuous double-digit revenue growth, allowing us to expand our team, offer full-service capabilities and serve more than 300 unique B2B clients primarily in the Greater Philadelphia and New Jersey regions. With our headquarters in Doylestown, PA, we’ve opened new locations in Philadelphia, Princeton and Lehigh Valley, becoming one of the most recognizable B2B marketing brands in the region. Our continued growth and success have also earned us many accolades from organizations like Philadelphia Business Journal (PBJ), Wharton, Lehigh Valley Business, NJBiz, Clutch and Marcom and opportunities from prestigious institutions like Goldman Sachs and Google Partner.

A Client Story

Caroline needed her sanity back.

As a marketing manager, responsible for her company’s entire marketing function, she was always trying to please everyone—her boss, sales, HR—but needed more capacity and capability to do so.

There wasn’t enough time in the day for her to achieve everything she needed and she didn’t have the expertise to execute every tactic effectively. Her workday was highly reactive—but the time to get ahead was simply not there.

At a conference, Caroline met Dan—a marketing manager who worked for a similarly-sized company. They bonded over their common challenges and responsibilities—when he let her in on a secret. He partnered with Sagefrog two years ago in lieu of hiring another person and it changed his life.

He told her how he planned to hire someone in his department for $75K because they had marketing experience—but instead hired Sagefrog for the same amount. Now he has a 25 person team of expert digital marketers, copywriters, designers, brand strategist and more, at his disposal.

Dan gave Caroline the name and contact info of Sagefrog and told her to give us a call.

Now, it’s been a year since Caroline called Sagefrog and got her sanity back—all while doing more for her boss, sales and HR than she could’ve ever done alone, or with a few-person team.

She’s leading a marketing department that’s firing on all cylinders now—with a proper brand strategy showcased on her company’s website and marketing materials, and promoted effectively through SEO, PPC, email marketing, video marketing, PR, social media, content, advertising, events and analytics.

Her company is getting marketing qualified leads and has already seen return on marketing investment.

Caroline went from being overwhelmed and understaffed, without the capability or capacity to manage an effective marketing program for her entire company.

To leading a fully-functioning, and cost-effective, marketing department that’s firing on all channels and getting marketing qualified leads and ROI—all while doing it with a well-balanced quality of life.
