Dare & Defy helps organizations and entrepreneurs define and achieve their version of success purposefully and consciously.

We look at your business operations, sales process and resources (people, skill sets, budget) to perfect the optimal mix of tactics, tools, and technologies to promote your business, grow your audience, sell more and build a community.

Together, we work on defining what makes your business truly unique, and develop a strategic roadmap and a marketing plan to take your business from where it is, to where you want it to be.

How do we work?

In a nutshell, it only takes 3 steps:

It all starts with a spark!

Capturing a moment, an idea, a concept, an inspiration.

Play Time!

Ideas and concepts are nurtured, tested and fine tuned to grow into viable strategies.

Let’s get loud!

Strategies are implemented into campaigns and tactics, tools and technologies are selected to make some noise.

The best of all worlds

We deliver 360° integrated marketing strategies and campaigns (as a full service agency would), while digging deep into the inner workings of your business (as a consulting practice would), bringing the people most adapted to execute on your project .

How does that benefit you?

One shoe fits all? We don’t think so!


Marketing is a wide discipline with an infinite number of combinations between strategies, tactics, parameters, and tools. There is no one shoe fits all, so every strategy and implementation plan produced by us is unique to the specific needs of our client.


Yes to the smart use of technology


What we do constantly evolves as technology disrupts consumer behaviors, and as new platforms and tools are created. We leverage technology to make it work for our clients, but don’t let them become slaves to technology.


To build high, you need strong foundations


When building a house, you make sure to have strong, healthy foundations. It’s the same with strategy and marketing! We work on creating and consolidating the foundations for your business. We ensure you drive maximum value from organic strategies and tactics to make it easy to grow, and drive optimal results when you extend your reach with paid.


Marketing, a social science


We treat marketing as a social and behavioral science. We make hypothesis/assumptions based on our knowledge and experience, we test it, and refine it until we obtain the desired outcome.
