Our Story

7 Story Marketing was born out of the marketing needs of a few local businesses. Aaron Lynch is the Founder and Owner of 7 Story Marketing and has worked in sales and marketing his entire life and owned several small/local businesses. He is very familiar with the frustration of not knowing where to spend marketing dollars and not seeing results from the efforts he was employing. His research and work in marketing led him to create the 7 Story Marketing proprietary process and marketing funnel: the Complete Marketing Loop. The process, based on research and strategy instead of specific tactics, has proven very effective with local companies. Shortly after starting 7 Story Marketing, Aaron Lynch was joined by Brad Thompson, a talented graphic designer with print and digital experience in the restaurant, retail, church, and music industries. Brad’s artistic talents were a perfect complement to what Aaron had begun. Together, the art and science became a powerful combination to help local businesses achieve their goals.
