We are 434 Marketing and we are excited to serve the Richmond, Virginia area. We are a creative, full-service agency. When we say full-service, we mean it. We come alongside each of our clients to do everything from print marketing to video to social media to brand strategy. Our experienced, passionate team knows how to get your story heard by the right people. 

We love solving problems. But, we know that each problem has its own solution. We won’t try to give you a “magic bullet”. We’ll work with you to determine exactly what you need. 

What we do

Web Design

Your website needs to do more than just look nice, it needs to tell your story. Everyone knows a website is important to your business—not just for search engines, but for brand recognition and customer engagement and even revenue generation in some cases. However, not every website is created equal. A good website should be able to grow with your business, too.

Brand Strategy

Our team is the one you need on your side to not only take your strategy to the next level, but to be able to report on the results. Our team has spent countless hours learning, creating, analyzing and implementing brand strategies and we know one thing: there is no “one size fits all” solution. We don’t offer the same strategy to every client that comes in our doors. Instead, we take the time to get to know you and the things that matter most to you, and create a custom plan.

Content Marketing

Content in a digital society has to be adaptive and responsive. But, it also has to be unique to your brand and audience while still conveying a message. The same tactics that worked even a few months ago may not work today. You need a team that knows how to roll with the punches and stay on top of the ever-changing search landscape. We create content that is authentic to your brand, targeted to your audience and purposeful to your mission.


Need a little bit of everything? We do that too! It may not make sense for you to hire an internal marketing team. Or, maybe your marketing team has skills that would best be used on other projects. No matter your situation, our team can seamlessly come right alongside yours and help create and execute your big ideas. From social media content and blogs to photography and video, our team can take care of it.

What our clients say

Showcasing our work has never been a priority for us for two reasons: For starters, we prefer humility. But secondly, and probably most important, we are fiercely protective of our clients. In many client partnerships, we aren’t just vendors fulfilling a role, we are extensions of their marketing team and are often written into their organizational charts as such. That’s not something we take lightly and it’s a relationship we value to the highest level.

However, we know that it’s important to show our work in order to gain future client trust. So, you’ll be seeing some examples coming soon. In the meantime, hear from some of our clients and why they love working with us:

“If you want business growth and to stake your claim in the marketplace, I would spend my money here rather than anywhere else. That is exactly what we did and we are thrilled with our outcome.  We don’t regret a dime spent with the team at 434 Marketing.  And I look forward to a long road ahead with them.”

Shannon Leedy

Marketing Director at Piedmont Eye Center

“The new Lynchburg Community Market website is everything we had hoped for. Working with 434 Marketing was a genuine pleasure – they understood our vision and took it to the next level. We are so happy with the end result – our new site is a fantastic representation of all that our market has to offer to the community.”
