Frequently Asked Questions

Who is NEXT and what do you do?

NEXT is a Minneapolis-based integrated marketing agency with services in the areas of digital, content, creative, digital/UX, data & metrics, marketing, media, research and strategy. We have a strong reputation for helping brands and companies grow. We pride ourselves on providing marketing solutions that support our clients’ broader business goals, and in some cases, pay for themselves.

Who hires NEXT?

Global and local businesses that want a fresh, unified, seamless approach to marketing. Difficult challenges are our sweet spot, so we don’t use a one-size-fits all approach. The most dangerous tool in marketing is a cookie cutter. We do what works, which is not always the obvious approach.

What industries do you work with?

Our industry experience includes agriculture, healthcare, higher education, manufacturing, nonprofit and more.

Who works at NEXT?

Check out our bios for the details, but in a nutshell, there’s no “B” team. Everyone at NEXT brings their authentic, experienced point of view to the table. It’s a collaborative approach – we provide peace of mind as a trusted partner by plugging in where our clients need us. The reputation of your brand is worth hiring the right people.

Why work with an agency vs. hire internal staff?

When companies hire NEXT to be their agency partner, they leverage a wealth of knowledge from our highly experienced talent with a variety of skill sets. We serve the big picture, or plug into work seamlessly alongside our clients’ staff to fill gaps.

How long has NEXT been around?

NEXT has been serving clients for more than 25 years, providing strategic answers for one-of-a-kind challenges.
