Our Philosophy



Content Shmontent! We carefully measure and understand just what makes your audience laugh, react or remember what a great experience they had the last time around. We think a healthy balance of properly timed, creative brand messaging coupled with the constant redistribution of user generated content works to keep your audience's head in the game.


Incentivize Data Collection

Ever heard of a "thousand points of light?" Well how about a thousand points of data collection! We believe there should be a sign-up form, mobile opt-in or list-building contest around every turn.

Sure, we care about Likes and followers, but owning and maintaining a database of your customers' information is the cornerstone of our approach.



Now we've got direct means of contact with an alert fan base. Our experience tells us when to introduce commerce drivers such as coupons and product/ticket bundles, and who to tell about them.

Careful review of conversion stats are essential to effectively re-focus ad spends and campaign efforts. Which is what keeps Steve awake at night!


Spread The Word

Whether utilizing Open Graph tools, dreaming up the ultimate share-able status update or managing re-tweet contests, we get a kick out of mobilizing fans to evangelize your message.

While Mark is not busy turning the wheels of commerce with Noise New Media, he's out playing rockstars as one half of the award winning musical duo O'SHEA. His wife, Jay makes up the other, much better looking half.

His unique artist perspective on digital marketing gives Noise the ability take a more well rounded approach to New Media. How many other companies do you know that can say that the boss has opened for Keith Urban?

As a network engineer in the Y2K era, he deployed multi-state wide area networks and long-haul wireless connectivity for companies large and small. Today, Steve’s strengths include connecting the dots between social campaigns and ticketing providers; a key contributing factor in proving Noise’s impact on ticket sales for over a decade.
