Pink Marketing

Nowadays, more and more media is digitally traded. For example, nowadays people watch much less TV and more through online channels. Pink is a strategic digital media Agency that helps organizations reach their right target group online. We do this by setting up and managing various online marketing campaigns via three channels, namely search, social and display. We work from these channels for clients such as Huawei, de Persgroep and Tiktak/ Segafredo Zanetti. 

Pink Marketing was established 4 years ago. At that time started with two men, now grown to 29 in a spacious office building on Gedempte Zuiderdiep in Groningen. We have an informal atmosphere at the office. In short: we are a place for people who want to make a difference.
