A Brand Strategy and Product Marketing Company

About AE Marketing Group

Our company began inside a rehabbed walk-in closet in Chicago and now our boutique advises businesses around the world on strategy, media, design, marketing, and co-creation. AE Marketing Group’s performance is at the top of our industry in terms of growth, customer success, and customer longevity.

We attribute this consistent performance to our philosophy that a brand is not a creative function, but rather an enterprise-wide business function.

With today’s economic uncertainty, shifting consumer behaviors, and emerging technology, companies must think differently about their brand.


Our customers’ success and AE Marketing Group’s expertise has been featured by Inc., Forbes, Branding Magazine, Ad Age, The American Marketing Association, Modern Healthcare, Buzzssumo, and more.

AE Marketing Group was named a “Top 100 Content Marketer in the World” and our Brand Lab Series™ Podcast won “Top Business and Technology Podcast” by The Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts.


We are 100% customer-funded, a 3x Inc. 5000 Winner (the prestigious list of America’s fastest-growing private companies), a Goldman Sachs 10K, and 1871 alumni (world’s #1 ranked business incubator).

AE Marketing Group’s sales have increased by 240% and we have been profitable for twelve consecutive years.  We reinvest that profit into our employees, the local economies of our customers, and more than 40 local, national, and global non-profits through our social entrepreneurship and corporate philanthropy.


During the COVID-19 Pandemic, we established the Small Business Big Impact Fund to help our peers during an unprecedented time.  More than 75% of the grants went to women and minority-owned businesses.
