Red Cannonball was created in 2011 by Tom Wright. While working in his dad’s insurance agency, Tom noticed that many of the clients had great businesses but were operating without an online marketing presence. Tom took it upon himself to create websites for these businesses then drive traffic to these websites that he built. Tom learned Search Engine Optimization and Search Engine Marketing to generate visitors to the websites that he built.
Red Cannonball has evolved from working with small businesses around the Joliet area with one employee to a full online marketing team serving as a full-scale digital marketing agency for fast, aggressive growing companies throughout the United States and the world.

 

At Red Cannonball, we believe in transparency and education. We also believe in testing. Lots of testing. If one channel is not working for our clients, we test and test and test to come up with a solution. Then, if these tests all prove ineffective we move on to another channel in order to achieve success for our clients. Our online marketing team is skilled in different levels of the online marketing arena and our focus is to help our clients grow.

We are a leading global communications marketing firm with thousands of talented employees connecting, informing and creating inspiring work. We recalibrate brands to broaden awareness, reframe global positions and re-connect with core customers. Our business is to help you form relationships and effectively engage.​
