What we bring to the table
At Inner Architect we bring decades of experience to every client. We have worked with businesses as big as the New York Times to solo entrepreneurs and first-time authors. We are a Google Partner agency with certifications in Search. Our social media work has received recognition from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and earned a client the distinction of being a leader in law firm marketing on Twitter.
How Inner Architect Stands Apart
We have been trained in the science and psychology of marketing. We’ve been at it for 33 years. We combine our traditional direct marketing know-how, proven to have a high rate of success, with new and innovative digital marketing tactics. We bring experience to clients that most digital marketers today don’t have. And that’s what sets us apart as a digital marketing agency.
We offer a couple of unique services that provide for other differentiating factors. Our client intake optimization services help clients to manage leads so that they will have a high likelihood of becoming a client. We help clients to save thousands of dollars each month through our cutting edge click fraud protection service.
Business and Pro Bono Contributions
We have contributed to The Recorder, Plaintiff and Advocate magazines, Search Engine People, and Multi Channel Merchant. We have been speakers at industry conferences such as Direct to Consumer Wine Symposium, Wine Industry Technology Symposium, Hospitality Industry Association, Print Industries of Northern California, and San Francisco State University College of Business.
Alongside Inner Architect’s commitment to helping businesses is our desire to share our expertise to help individuals reach their potential. We have donated hundreds of hours of our time teaching job-seeking professionals how to blog and leverage social media in their job search. Through her book Inner Architect, our Co-Founder Susan Hanshaw seeks to help anyone looking to create a more fulfilling career.

To sum things up, Inner Architect is a boutique agency. We specialize in personalized work for our clients. We bring you smart people with decades of experience without the costs of multiple worldwide locations, large overhead, or a huge payroll. We don’t have a dog in our office, but we’re still very likable.
