August United

THE INFLUENCER MARKETING YOU WISH YOU HAD

OUR STORY

YOU’RE IN AUGUST COMPANY

August United doesn’t mean we get together in the eighth month of the year. It means bringing impressive brands together with impressive people.

We’ve consistently ranked as one the top 5 influencer agencies in the world, and we think it’s due to how we see it. It’s not just a marketing landscape waiting for your brand to take the reins. August United sees every opportunity as unconquered territory, where rules change and only the strong thrive.

We are your INFLUENCER MARKETING MAVERICKS. When we hear the word “can’t,” without hesitation we ask, “Ya wanna bet?” We’re all about buckling down and getting our hands dirty, telling it how it is and coming out better for it in the end. It’s what has placed us on the leading edge of influencer marketing. When you seek our help, you walk away with more than you thought you needed.

That’s the August way.

Jackie Crynes

As the Chief Strategy & Creative Officer, Jackie is relentless in her pursuit of motivating insights and creating magnetic ideas. Jackie is a connector of dots, always seeking after the ‘why’ with unmatched energy. With experience both client and agency side, she knows where and how to push brands to think big, overturn the status quo, and lead teams to execute with excellence.

Jackie led award-winning social strategy along with day-to-day digital campaigns for SONIC Drive-In – growing its $4 billion brand’s Instagram following by 400% YOY, unlocking store segmentation for digital menu displays across 3,500 locations, and being part of the team to win a Cannes Lion for #SonicSquareShakes, a influencer led and event inspired campaign.

As a brand marketer, she knows how to bring out the best across multiple agency partners, and sync up brand objectives with dynamic influencer campaigns. Her agency work spans launching and leading the national social media vision for The Kroger Company, engaging brands like Cicis Pizza to try-on influencer marketing for the first time and helping brands like Twenty Mule Team Borax have their star moment thanks to sharp creator partnerships.

Jackie is a mom of a tenacious two year old, southpaw that plays slowpitch softball on the regular, and grilling enthusiast. And after living in both Oklahoma and Texas for a few years, she uses “y’all” as part of her regular lexicon.

OUR CORE VALUES

We hold our core values close to the chest. Every Uniter working for you is a reflection of what’s most important to us:

Authenticity

NEVER SELLING OUT.

Let’s face it, people trust their peers a heck-of-a lot more than they trust brands. Our influencers value maintaining a credible relationship with their audience above all else. We believe in being real, being honest and just being human.

Unity

WE SHOULD ALL BE IN AUGUST COMPANY

We are committed to bringing together challenger brands or organizations, thought leaders and talented individuals to collectively achieve awesome outcomes.

Exploration

LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY.

We want to be at the forefront of discovering new ways to connect organizations and brands to their audiences with authentic, meaningful methods that make things happen. We never stop testing, discovering and iterating.

Originality

WORK THAT IS BEAUTIFUL, CREATIVE, AND DIFFERENT.

With so much competing for our attention, campaigns must stand out, events must offer exceptional experiences and content must be engaging.

AUDACITY

GO AGAINST THE GRAIN AND CHALLENGE THE MARKETING STATUS QUO.

There’s no reward if you can’t take surprisingly bold risks. To create a true affinity to a cause or brand, you must reach individuals where and how they spend their time.
