“I have worked with Emily for the past 5 years and her creativity, execution and follow through are exceptional.  Emily and her team are always informed and up to date on new technology in the ever changing world of social media.  It’s nice to be able to rely on them to be the experts so I don’t have to be the expert.”

The Grid Agency is outstanding. Their professional and knowledgeable approach to social media, event support and general marketing have helped us tremendously. Their dedicated team helped us better connect with donors, volunteers and families in need. We would recommend their services to any Sacramento-based organization.

Communications & Development Director

Before I found The Grid Agency I haphazardly posted things on social media because I thought I was supposed to. No plan, no consistency, and very meager results. Now, we have a cohesive, authentic, industry specific online presence that continues to adapt and expand. The whole Grid Agency team is approachable and extremely good at what they do, and they are real people who know my business and I intimately. Hiring The Grid Agency was definitely one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made!
