Ideabar: Boutique Marketing for the Modern Age

Back to blog

Welcome to Ideabar! by Cox Media Group is a modern boutique marketing and media agency within one of the world’s largest private media companies.

At Ideabar, the math is simple:

marketing + media + research + branding + creative + digital = powerful storytelling that incites action

Every organization has a story to tell. At Ideabar, we’re super passionate about stories. In fact, our very own story began with storytelling. Once upon a time at a Cox Media Group newspaper, our founders engaged a few hundred media clients in conversations and deep storytelling about their businesses. During these exchanges, they heard tale after tale of interesting, vibrant organizations that desperately wanted to grow. Taken together, these stories communicated a need for powerful marketing + media ideas that would inspire action. This then marked the beginning of Ideabar: a few data-driven, wildly creative, digital natives fluent in all aspects of media responded to this need by starting a marketing + media agency whose mission it is to tell powerful brand stories. Telling powerful brand stories by combining the art of marketing + the science of media is at the heart of everything we do at Ideabar!
