Started in 2008, RubLine has quickly become the choice of several companies looking for marketing and brand management with a personal touch. We are not bigger… and we like it that way.
Having over 20 years in sales and marketing, founder Chase Rohlfsen had seen all too often the swift decision-making and cookie cutter marketing approaches that many of the large firms across the country took time and time again with their clients. One size does not fit all. Utilizing many resources in different venues is what makes us unique. Each project is unique and that requires unique resources. Each piece is sourced to best fit the project.
“You have to get to know your client, what their goals are, what does their product or service do and how does that product or service benefit the end-user. I can truly say we get to know our clients so well… they become our friends.” - Chase Rohlfsen
