Killin' It for You

Crushed It

We're Columbia Marketing Group, but our friends call us CMG

We love telling stories. We specifically love telling those of the businesses and business owners that have grown Columbia throughout the years. Columbia Marketing Group happens to be one such business.

We expanded from a decades-old legacy publishing company to a full-service marketing agency. We realized several years ago that we can do so much more than just print these business’ stories in a magazine — we could help them strategically grow.

We understand local businesses, because we are one.

We took components from each of the skill sets that make up our magazines, and CMG was born.

Our team is composed of writers and editors skilled in both business and lifestyle writing. Our photographers, full stack web developer, and in-house graphic designers have won national accolades with their work. Our account managers and media strategists create marketing strategies and campaigns from social media to full-scale events.
