What and who we're made of

We don't just make people want things, we make things people want

As marketers, we need to be honest about one thing— people don’t want or need more marketing in their lives. They want to be helped, informed, or inspired by brands that they value or that align with their values. That’s why our core belief at CloudRaker is not to just make people want things but instead make things people want.

We call this: Meaningful Commerce™

Let's talk values


We are not the type of people to sit in a corner and work away. We work collaboratively with our clients to solve their marketing problems. 


The only way to get to the heart of a problem is to be open and honest about the whole process. That's how we operate and we expect the same in return.


We don't just create things for the sake of it. Everything we make has a purpose and the results matter. If what we create doesn't work, we learn from it and fix it.


We treat your business like it's our own. We develop bold ideas, and test them on ourselves first. That way you know that any solutions we come up with actually work.
