No company can progress or exist without its clients. As a startup marketing agency, HypeLife Brands is no exception to this rule. There are not enough words to thank our amazing and unique clients past and present, who for the last 20 years have been the pillar of our support, and a guiding light to our constant improvement as the uniquely-positioned brand development and marketing agency that we are.
 
Our clients and their unshakable faith in our startup marketing agency motivates us to improve every day.
 
Here are just a few testimonial highlights from our inspirational clients who have outperformed in their startup, and who are thought leaders and role models in their own niches.
 
La’Shion Robinson, Founder of HUDL Music, a man with incredible business and music industry acumen & vision, has these words to describe his experience engaging and working with HypeLife Brands:
"Their commitment to HUDL Music and my original vision never wavered, and they took it to a place that's better than anything I'd built in my head. For that, and so many other reasons, I'm so excited about continuing our partnership with HypeLife Brands and working to grow HUDL Music into a brand that stands the test of time.”
 
 
Nadine Ramos, Founder & CEO of LASIO Professional Haircare, an internationally-distributed haircare line with both B2B and B2C arms, said: "When I found HypeLife Brands, I had an instant feeling of ‘this could be the agency for us’ the moment I came across their website. Everything spoke to my company's needs, both where we're at now, and how we need to grow and evolve."
 
 
Harvey Kong, Co-Founder of GoodFetch, keeps it short and sweet in his experience working with us:
"From day one with HypeLife Brands, the scope of engagement has been very clear. ‘Professional’ sums it up in one word, to say the least.”
 
 
Alison Pandelos, Managing Director of GROM-IT, shared her own success story: "After years of struggling with companies that were unprofessional and wasted my time and money, I was on the verge of throwing in the towel. Then I came across Curt and the HypeLife Brands team." 

Alison also shared "Our website registrations, traffic, and participation have steadily increased. Our social media following — which is very important to our brand and was a huge struggle for us to manage on our own — has gone from an audience of less than 1,500 to over 58,000 followers (and not the paid-for garbage). This has also increased overall activity on our website — activity that is both global and high quality — and really helped us build a focused community."   
 
Other clients also shared these kind words: “Curt and his team are professional, extremely knowledgeable, consistent, and genuinely care about our company/brand and our long-term success.”
 
These words from our inspiring clients motivate us to push harder every day, setting our bar of excellence even higher. It’s their success that gives us the most pride and defines us as an agency.
