Rise Interactive is a digital marketing agency specializing in digital media and advanced analytics. The independently-held agency was founded in 2004 by CEO Jon Morris and has flourished into a multi-million dollar business, with a growing list of Fortune 1000 clients. Rise has accomplished its growth by taking a data-driven approach to marketing, maintaining a razor-sharp focus on client performance, and reinvesting the profits back into the business. It manages enterprise-level analytics and campaigns across all channels of digital marketing, including: paid search, SEO, email, display, social, affiliate, and comparison shopping engines.
From its inception, Rise has invested in quantitatively-minded marketers and an analytics infrastructure to help brands see data differently and answer critical business questions. Rise is continuously developing ways to deliver faster, better, and deeper insights for its client, which has led to the creation of numerous proprietary tools, technologies, and techniques — all geared toward empowering the modern-day marketer to make smarter investment decisions.
