We Grow Business

The team at JamesDugan takes great pride in providing our clients top quality services and products that are developed and executed completely in-house.  There are very few agencies in South Dakota and the region with complete in-house capabilities, and we are proud to also provide an in-house, fully High-Definition, fully digital production facility.  We are well prepared and experienced in all aspects of marketing, advertising, communications and creative development, and are ready to roll up our sleeves and help grow your business!

Our Process


First, we roll up our sleeves and ask some questions-questions about your audience, your market, your competition, your strengths, and your obstacles. Basically, we figure out where you are now and where it is you want to be.


Once we have a clear plan in place, we put it into action. We get the ball rolling, executing the right message in the right context in the right medium in order to connect people to your brand and move them to take action.


Finally, you get the tangible results that are crucial for achieving the goals of your business. We’ll savor the sweet taste of victory with you for a bit before we start all over again with bigger and even more ambitious goals.
