Work Desk


We exist to support start-ups, small businesses, non-profits, and associations with
simple marketing solutions.​ Think of us as your external marketing department.


CreativeMktGroup began as a start-up business on $0 capital in January 2016 and has since continued to grow organically. Founder, Natalie Toalson McNamara, determined a gap in the marketplace for small businesses and the quality, simple marketing support they so very well deserve. Furthermore, it seemed the only options available were top marketing agencies which are certainly stellar in quality, yet not typically affordable to small businesses.


As the CMG client base has grown, so has the team. And along the way, it has been challenging, but important to remain lean and process driven, in an effort to be most efficient and to, again, provide a simple marketing resource to clients.


Today and continually moving forward, CreativeMktGroup commits to finding a way to support start-ups, small businesses, non-profits, and associations.
