New ad firm Create04 looking for Shockoe Space

Create04 is looking to fill a niche with local businesses that don’t need or desire a traditional advertising or marketing agency contract. Although currently based in a Church Hill they hope to be in Shockoe in the near future. Richmond sat down and talked with Karen Gauthier the brains behind Create04 .

“I want to help those that need it the most, and today that is small and mid-sized businesses,” she said. “They can’t get the larger agencies. It’s just not something they can afford.”

Gauthier said she is targeting companies in Virginia, mostly businesses in the food and beverage industry and automotive industry.

The company has nailed down eight clients, including River City Diner and La Grotta and Cooper’s Vineyard, a winery in Louisa. Most of the clients are in Richmond.

You also get a bit of insight from the press realease.

“We will serve clients with projects that require special attention, don’t have internal resources, are overwhelmed with their current workload and need to outsource, have consistent quick turn needs or simply have budget constraints that limit availability of other agencies. We tailor our specialists and teams to the degree of need so that time and money are not wasted on unnecessary services or overhead.”
