Hammock Ads header image

Don't hire an advertising agency just for what they do, hire them for what they know, and how they care for every client. Hire an advertising agency that has solid, and long-term relationships with their clients. A partnership that helps build a brand through creative ads that drive behavior.


Some advertising agencies ignore small and medium size retail and service businesses, we don't. Just because you might not spend a ton of money on radio, television, print, outdoor, or social media, doesn't mean that you should have to figure this out on your own.


Our clients represent some of the oldest and most trusted businesses in Houston. Two are multiple recipients of the BBB's Awards for Excellence Winner of Distinction. One is the largest lamp store in the Southwest. Our clients are also our friends, and we like it that way, because it promotes trust and confidence, and is the cornerstone of how we have built our reputation.

Monica and Village Plumbing are unique, there just are not very many master plumbers who are female. We needed a campaign that helped us brand what's unique about Village Plumbing and Home Services.

Through a series of "how to" ads we continue to brand Village as woman owned and a business that cares about their customers. We teach the customers how to fix the small things themselves while we take care of the big stuff. The ads have resonated with Houston with increasing sales that verify the success of the campaign.


Using a combination of radio and targeted Cable has helped River Ridge remain one of the premiere golf destinations in the Houston area.

Our last TV and Radio campaign generated hundreds of new contacts for our weekly newsletter and a dramatic increase in rounds of golf and BBQ sales(see BBQ in our portfolio.)
