Our specialties

At SHIFTER Agency we serve a variety of brands, talent and businesses in a variety of industries, but there are some things that we just do better than our competition.

Content marketing

As the publishers of the online magazine SHIFTER, we have years of experience in creating dynamic and compelling content. SHIFTER can help you, your brand or organization create highly engaging content that blurs the lines between content and marketing, and positions your brand in the marketplace.

18-35 Demographic

Through publishing SHIFTER magazine we have also learned how to market to and communicate with the coveted 18-35 demographic. This is the demographic that spends the most time on their phones, consumes the most content, and sets trends. Using our content platform and expertise we can help you reach this highly influential demographic.

Diversity + Inclusion


At SHIFTER we also understand diversity and how to speak to diverse audiences. Companies from H&M to Gucci have struggled with this with the newspaper headlines to prove it. 

As immigration increases and our cities become even more diverse, it will be especially important to be able to communicate to diverse audiences and unlock the income potential in diverse communities.
