so what is crux?

We believe in simplicity, the nitty gritty, the bottom line, getting to the point. “Everything you need. Nothing you don’t.” Period.
And when you’re a business leader looking for growth, you’d rather just get to the point.

Crux KC merges executive-level marketing and business strategy to provide a simple, smart and affordable marketing solution for our clients. Basically, you hand over the keys and we drive toward your desired marketing outcomes.

Already have a marketing team? Great, we’ll partner with your existing staff to add depth and strength to the bench.

Going it alone? No worries! We’ll serve as your in-house marketing team, outsourced, for a fraction of the cost. With Crux, you get a CMO to build your strategy and a complete team to back it up and execute.

our story.

Crux KC launched in 2016 because we knew there had to be a better way to serve the marketing needs of small-to-mid-sized businesses. For the longest time, businesses were forced to choose between a traditional ad agency or hiring an in-house employee. Each presents its own risk, including hefty price tags, marketing fluff, or limited skill sets.  

Thanks to our “un-agency” model, businesses now have a third option. Our “Door #3” offers a hybrid model of outsourcing that allows businesses an affordable way to gain senior-level experience while amortizing costs and reducing risk.
