Get to know GET LIFT

Our Who, What & Why

our Evolution

  • 2001GET LIFT began as a traditional marketing agency serving clients in Canada and the US. As the Internet developed, our company evolved and embraced the digital age.
  • 2009We noticed two intriguing insights: (1) the growing prevalence of B2B marketers employing marketing automation platforms and (2), a glaring skills gap. We decided to focus on B2B clients and over the years we’ve grown our team to include certified experts in marketing automation platforms such as HubSpot, Marketo, Silverpop, Eloqua and ExactTarget.
  • 2010We aligned ourselves with SiriusDecisions and became certified in their best practice methodologies which assist B2B organizations in generating higher-quality leads, increasing the sales pipeline and boosting revenue. These frameworks became the foundations for how we help clients with their marketing strategy.

Today, we are a leading full-service B2B marketing agency with 40+ team members across North America and scores of happy and referenceable clients.

our purpose

At our core, we love solving the problems you’re struggling with. We get excited by the collaborative process of clearly identifying and then attacking your challenges from different angles with a variety of marketing weaponery. We care about achieving real results and get an immense amount of pleasure from contributing to your success.

Creative & Demand Gen Marketing Manager, ARMS Reliability

I worked with the GET LIFT team at my old company and reached out to David when I took a new job because I knew they could help boost our marketing. I really value that they’re super easy to work with. Their PM’s are very organized and keep the projects (and me) on track. My senior team appreciates that they use SiriusDecisions frameworks when discussing strategies and I like the creative they’ve delivered to engage our very challenging audience of engineers.
