The Southern Influence Consulting


Marketing Consulting

Our bread-and-butter. We're confident in our ability to match brands with people to love them, and want to help you next. We aren't afraid to serve up unique solutions, and will give you proof (with metrics) that it's working. 

From traditional social/multi-channel media planning & management to authentic campaign planning, audience targeting - even experiential (event) marketing! Let us tell your story.

Creative Design


Does your "digital" just seem "dull"? You're in the right place. We've got design chops, and we're not afraid to use 'em! 

We can analyze your customer base, develop your audience, plan your brand-value and develop assets (photos, videos, and more) to tell your story  in the most effective and eye-catching way.


 PR + Brand Partnerships

"See and be seen" is the mantra, right?! We've been around long enough to show you exactly where you need to be to get the exposure you want. Take full advantage of our relationships to get your brand in front of the culture influencers that you're after, guaranteed.

Events? We love a good party or product launch. Advertising? We've got you covered. Product reviews and sponsored content? We've got that, too. Put our contacts to work for YOU.

Photo & Video

(including aerials!)

Everything from social media videos to cinema-quality productions worthy of a national primetime buy are in our wheelhouse - just ask (and check it out below!).

Great for luxury and commercial real-estate, our leading-edge technology and aircraft provide the highest-quality photos and 4k video. We're FAA 14 CFR Part 107 certified, and we travel, too! 

Who We've Worked With

Photography & Videography

Nothing shows off your brand quite like telling a great story. And nothing tells a great story quite like an immersive video. We work with professionals, and have solutions for every budget - we also think our work speaks for itself. Reach out today for a quote from the team that's been called "the most drama-free production company out there."
