Tick Boxer was created by a team of advertising operations experts, to help ad agencies and other creative businesses implement best practice business process. We free up your time to focus on what you’re great at by giving you all the tools and knowledge you need to make the operations of your business tight, maximise your profits and spend less time sorting out problems.
Our team has over 30 years combined experience in the creative and communications industry, and we spent the last 10 years coaching creative businesses to achieve greater efficiency and higher margins, through our founding company Adtopia. We helped many creative businesses who experienced similar issues which affected profitability, and in many instances, these issues were resolved through the use of a few simple solutions.
So, we started Tick Boxer to provide more creative businesses with big industry brains at a low cost - all our tools, templates and reports have been designed by industry experts and each one has been proven to be effective for use in creative businesses. We've seen some clients increase their margins by up to 50% by using our estimating and reporting tools in particular.
