Rust Creative is the small business secret weapon.

Improving awareness and engagement can often feel unclear. Rust Creative makes it easy to empower your small business with the marketing tools to find your ideal audience.

Grow your small business, without emptying your pockets.

Rust Creative is a Rust Belt agency dedicated to Small Business and Small Towns. We focus on helping small businesses and nonprofits gain traction in their local and surrounding communities through search engine optimization and social media marketing.

You shop local, why not use a local agency?

We’re from the Rust Belt. We know your territory. We started this agency after working for years in larger agencies who were either not transparent enough with processes, procedures and cost, or, simply, weren’t creating the quality of work we feel small businesses deserve.

What we do.

Lots. We’re photographers who can manage Instagram and Facebook (exceptionally well). We know advertising for search engines and social media. And, over the past 25 years, our clients have sold more than $85M worth of products (that’s millions).


We focus on helping small businesses and nonprofits gain traction in their local and surrounding communities through search engine optimization and social media marketing. Simply, we put your products in front of your desired audience within the boundaries of your budget. Furthermore, we make sure your digital presence grows for the future. Rust Creative is company you can trust for all of your small business marketing needs.

Search Engine Optimization

Search engine optimization, or SEO, is the process of maximizing the number of visitors to a website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine. We have been designing and marketing eCommerce companies since 1997. We work closely with out SEO clients to create optimized code, original copy, and maintain those strategies through ever-changing search engine algorithms.

 Social Media Marketing

Social media marketing, or SMM, refers to the process of gaining traffic or attention through social media sites. Social media itself is a catch-all term for sites that may provide radically different social actions. We can’t give away all of our secrets, but much of our success in social media marketing comes from our abilities to craft an original voice for your brand when writing social media copy, and from creating a visual identity through design and photography.

How much does this cost?

So, you might not have the same deep pockets for advertising and marketing of a larger business. That doesn’t mean you don’t deserve the same, high-quality work of a larger business. (Secret: We scale our expense to fit your needs.) It all starts with a conversation.
