It may call itself “the sweetest little marketing agency in the world,” but Red Branch Media makes some hardcore promises:
“Whatever the goal is, we’ll smash it. Whatever the hurdle, we’ll jump over it. No matter the industry, we’ll conquer it.”
Full-service and award-winning, Red Branch Media helps companies of all shapes and sizes, all over the world, create better marketing campaigns with a range of services, including web development, design & branding, strategy and social media. CEO Maren Hogan founded the agency in Omaha in 2008 and leads it today with Chief Technology Officer Jeremy Hogan and Managing Partner Eric Foutch.
“Omaha is incredibly important to us. We’ve raised our families here and now built a thriving business. Hiring in this area has allowed us to provide services to some of the most active technology markets on the planet. However, there’s nothing like having a client in the Greater Omaha area to meet with and serve,” Maren Hogan says.
The 30-person firm is split into four pods supporting over 50 clients in industries that include HR Technology, Staffing, Nonprofit, Finance, Legal, Pharmaceutical, Software and Manufacturing.
“We really believe in what we do, and we have the proof to back up the impact we’ve made on the companies that we work with,” Foutch says.

“Our culture is one-of-a-kind, and our values match our culture,” says CTO Jeremy Hogan. “We provide yearly stipends to our employees so that they may pursue additional training, attend conferences, and really work to become subject matter experts in their departments. We also host lunch-and-learns at our office where employees can educate their peers on a subject that they are experts in. Continued learning and development is built into our culture here, and we really work towards ensuring we are on the cutting-edge of new advances in our industry.”

- The Value of Chamber Involvement
“Being a member of the Greater Omaha Chamber has opened many opportunities for us to connect with local businesses, business owners and entrepreneurs. Connecting with these people has helped us discuss challenges and successes to really garner multiple viewpoints of what it takes to run a successful business,” Maren Hogan says.
- Impacting the Community
“Red Branch has helped many organizations over the years,” Foutch says. “Most recently, we created care packages for the homeless in Omaha. We also hosted a few, small non-profits in our office so they can meet in a large space. Finally, every year we match our employees’ donations on Omaha Gives! day.”
