Blue Fish's business has progressed over the years. We have worked with companies both large and small, from California to Switzerland. We have helped 1 person consulting firms, nationally recognized brands, non-profits, churches and government agencies, and we would love to help you.



We are consultants that understand the creative side of business. If you want to increase traffic to your website. If you want to build trust with your audience. If you want to work with someone that understands the difficulties of positioning, we can help.



We custom fit marketing strategies to the specific needs of your organization. We leverage our knowledge of business, sales, branding, application development, social media, website design, content strategy, search engine marketing (and more) to get the results you need.

Jared pulls double duty for Blue Fish as our Project Manager and Videographer and takes the title from Marcus as most organized person at Blue Fish. He has been the silent partner on the Mobile Alabama Business Podcast for the last 3 years as the Audio Engineer.

Jared lives for helping clients weave a story that will share their heart for why they do what they do. His passion for video surpasses his love for Gantt charts but he is equally adept at both. If you engage with Blue Fish, you will have Jared to thank when your project launches on time.
