Life at Red Ventures

People describe Red Ventures in many ways. We've been called one of the most innovative direct marketing companies in the nation. We've been named the Best Place to Work. We've even been called the next Google. The truth is, what we do is unique – and it can't be boxed into one category. Some companies focus on building a product and finding effective ways to market and sell it. At Red Ventures, our product is our expertise in how to market and sell. Unlike companies who specialize in either online marketing, telephone sales or building technology infrastructure, Red Ventures has an expertise in all three. We own the risks and rewards of the entire direct marketing process – from lead generation to end transaction. And whether we're marketing and selling services for our partners or for ourselves, our process works. We're able to execute our business model across a wide range of industries, though we most specifically focus on consumer services, small business solutions and media/telecom.
