We’re an agency of entrepreneurs. We know what it’s like to run an ecommerce business. Because we have. And still do.
Like you, we’ve taken 3am calls with overseas suppliers, haggled pennies off pick-and-pack fees, watched something grow and thrive against the odds.
Whether you dream of transforming the world or turning a profit, our success depends on your success.
That’s why we define success by dreams achieved: future realities you want to create.
It’s not altruism; it’s not about having your head in the clouds. It’s a practical mandate for success.
At CTC, we ground your dreams in real strategies and specific growth goals.
It’s where passion meets planning. Taking the sparks of ideas and igniting them into something bigger. A mindset that guides you through the highs and the lows.
The strength of our dreams binds together passionate entrepreneurs — they’re the “common thread” that unites us.
We offer a path for all entrepreneurs to grow their businesses, whether you’re a boot-strapped startup or legacy brand.
At our core, CTC is a service provider; building your brand across visitors, conversion rate, and lifetime value. Centered on our ecommerce growth formula, we test our strategies on our own brands, then scale what works.
Alongside the agency, we run ADmission and 4x400. Being owner-operators allows us to uniquely empathize with our clients and gives us a frontline playbook to provide learnings and tested strategies.
Making Your Dreams a (Profitable) Reality
Entrepreneurs trust us, over other agencies, to help their business grow. It’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly, with results that have a heavy impact.
From creative content to media buying, here’s the journeys of entrepreneurs we have helped achieve their dreams.
Learning to Scale Your Ecommerce Business
Not every business has the resources to hire an agency, consultant, or full-time marketing team.
Since we couldn’t find a solution, we created one ourselves with ADmission: an ecommerce training community. It’s how we live into the growth-mindset, beyond what turns a profit.
Putting Our Money Where Our Mouth Is
We acquire, operate, and grow multiple in-house DTC brands under the holding company, 4x400.
Being owners with skin in the game not only gives us tactical wisdom into what works, it also gives us an emotional understanding of our clients no other agency can match.
CTC cares about you: the human, the dreamer, the visionary, the creative, the pioneer, the entrepreneur of your own life. Six core values shape how we care, both for clients and our teammates.
Honor commitments to clients with integrity and count on our team to do the same. Accomplish goals with mutual accountability.
Delight in sharing client stories with creativity, while staying true to the brand. “Tell the truth, but make the truth fascinating.” — David Ogilvy
Set goals that grow bolder each day and never allow achievements to plateau. Actively seek ways to increase our value to to clients — with or without an increased price tag.
We support each other through clear expectations, feedback, and timelines in pursuit of your goal. Accountability elevates our work.
Use determination and ingenuity to push past barriers. Champion creative problem solving, leverage every resource, and test every route.
Embrace opportunities to engage in exceptional service, encourage someone in a tough spot, and give without expecting anything in return.
We’re a human service business. And our people are our product. We invest in them because they invest in your business.
CTC is a fully remote company of creatives, data geeks, and leaders — expanding across the United States. Ready to serve you across any timezone.
*We're actively working on increasing this number
Between a global pandemic, racial and gender inequalities, and a tumultuous American election — we have watched our present reality challenge entrepreneurial dreams at every turn.
At CTC, these movements have awakened us to a glaring deficiency.
The racial, cultural, and gender makeup of our staff does not reflect our belief in a diverse and equitable world of entrepreneurs. So, we’ve committed to change.
However, solving CTC’s numbers problem does not ensure that our workplace welcomes, celebrates, and gives voice to minority backgrounds and perspectives.
Rather, our internal changes must translate externally. We must answer the question: “Whose dreams do we serve?” That’s why we’re declaring a new dream …
To create the future reality of a fair and equitable workplace that serves the diverse dreams of all entrepreneurs.
This also means amplifying BIPOC-owned businesses that can generate wealth for them, their causes, and communities.
Five commitments mark that path forward. Declarations that to become who we want to be … we must be different than who we are.
