About Left Hook
We're your outsourced team of digital natives and client-centered doers who obsess over ways to integrate, automate, and achieve automagical efficiency.
Left Hooksters are workhorses focused on building and managing web-based integrations and marketing systems for serious brands and businesses. We work just off the edge of the University of New Hampshire campus in Durham, NH. (Watch our aerial drone make its way home.)
We're particularly keen on technology startups, social ventures, conferences & events, and any organization passionate about using online software to save time, grow, and focus on the horizon.
For a small team, we pack a lot of punches. We write, code, pitch, and hustle. We measure, analyze, recalibrate, and improve. And most important: we learn fast - the true killer app of the digital age.

The Left Hook Story
Founded in 2012 as ElliottRand Marketing & Communications, we've roamed the digital marketing world. Over nearly six years, we've transitioned from a couple of content creation experts and PR hustlers to full-service inbound marketers, building complex WordPress sites and email marketing campaigns for world-class technology conferences and hot mobile startups.
Over time, we sharpened our two-edged unfair advantage: an exceptional ability to make things easier for businesses through automation, and a deep expertise in helping SaaS and Web App companies be the best and integrate with the rest.
And What's with the Name?
Never in love with our law firm-esque v1.0 name, we brainstormed a dozen mediocre alternatives. In a moment of frustration before testing the best of the several bad choices, Sandra had a eureka moment when she asked to put "Left Hook" up against Tom's top choice, "Convincing Action." You can guess which name was the overwhelming crowd favorite.
While Tom is now the solo lefty in the Hook, the name holds strong and clear. Our creativity yields the unexpected, and our earnest intensity is classic New Hampshire Yankee. We save our curveballs for when you most need a strikeout. And when necessary, we'll punch our way through hard problems with you.
