about US


Who we are

We are ‘The Brand Cartel’. They call us the “Marketing Mafia”, for killer brands.

The Godfather trio who started this gang, still run it from their hide-out in Sandton. The ‘Technical’, ‘Design’, ‘PR’, ‘Social Media’, ‘Activations’ and ‘Brand Strategist’ teams work together to bury your brand’s competition.

We’ll hide the evidence, bribe the coppers, pimp your brand out and do whatever it takes to get your brand on top – we don’t mess around! We will take care of the cut-throat marketing underworld for you. We don’t just work with anyone...If your brand has the gumption we will grow it the mob of customers it deserves.

If you are ready to get serious, ‘The Brand Cartel’ will ensure that your brand gets VIP-access into all the right places, rubs shoulders with the right media and becomes the talk-of-the-town, ( and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg).

If you are ready to roll with us, then contact us and we’ll “take care of it”!
