You might be asking yourself, “why would a digital marketing agency call themselves Vulgar?” Well, for many reasons—the meanings behind the word, the emotion it evokes, and the ease that it’s remembered.

Vulgar is about doing whatever it takes, as unsophisticated or as course as it might be, to grow a business. It’s about what’s critical for building a successful brand: unapologetic pursuit of growth.

10 Reasons We Love Being Vulgar

And if you’ve got a new pun for us, don’t hold back. We want to hear it.


Vulgar describes the words you want to use before you've figured out how to scale your business.

Vulgar can mean ignorant. But we think when it comes to stuff like "best practices," sometimes a little ignorance is good.

Vulgar implies a lack of good taste, but we like to think we're in the business of creating new tastes.

Vulgar makes people feel something. Good or bad, when you hear the word, it elicits emotion.

Vulgar can mean being offensive, and although we don't aim for this behavior, we're not afraid to go there.

Being vulgar can result in standing out—exactly what we help our clients do.

Vulgar can mean unrefined. We're proud to be who we are and say what we mean—with no sugar coating.

Vulgar is short and sweet. Easy to remember. Fun to say.

It makes us chuckle, imagining that accounting departments mistake our invoices for pornography charges.

Being vulgar happens among close friends who are comfortable being themselves. And that's the type of camaraderie we try to create when working with anyone.

The Vulgar Philosophy

Behold, our core beliefs. If you’re trying to scale your business consider borrowing a few.

Always seek better.

When you set out to do anything, boldly ask, “what’s the best way to do this?” Then answer it. This seemingly simple question will change everything you do. Even if you can’t, for some reason, execute in the best way possible, at least you can aim for what you know is possible.

Run towards difficult.

If something’s hard, it means fewer people are doing it. And that means less competition. Other peoples’ unwillingness is your opportunity. Get dirty. Do the boring or gross stuff if it grows the business. 

Ask dumb questions. 

Fiercely reject an ego. Remember, no one really knows what’s going on. When you ask dumb questions, watch how many “smart” people are exposed. Never make the mistake of thinking a dumb question makes you dumb. That would be dumb. Remember to listen and truly understand before speaking.

I never learned anything while talking.

Larry King Quote

Speak like a human.

Ditch buzzwords. Seriously, start a buzzword jar. Be yourself. Don’t be a different person at work. Comfortable communication is better communication.

Business Buzzword Jar

Let numbers do the talking.

Figure out the measurable goal before working out an idea or strategy. If you can measure it, you can prove if it’s working (or not) to grow the business.

Remember, emotion drives decisions.

The human brain is incapable of making decisions without accessing areas that control emotion. Account for this in all of your marketing. Routinely stop and answer, “how would this make someone feel?” If you try to persuade people with only logic, you’ll always eventually lose.

Be proud of everything you make.

If you don’t get an urge to step back and admire your work, it’s not right. Don’t stop until you get that feeling.
