A Pea is Born
The Pod Advertising started with a story. A true story …
There once was a little girl so committed to the truth that she couldn’t say the word “lie.” It wasn’t allowed. There was nothing worse in her household than saying something that wasn’t true.
Do you think it’s kind of ironic that she ends up starting a successful advertising agency? Then you don’t know The Pod.
Samantha Strickland believes that in every brand there is a story … a real story. This story is unique and so powerful that there are no competitors. It speaks to the company’s values, its mission and the perfection of its product. Each story is unique.
Well-told and true, each story can be a compelling sales tool.
Samantha started The Pod because she likes to tell stories — the true kind. She loves to hear other people’s stories. She loves to share those stories.
Situated in downtown Tallahassee, The Pod serves clients with a full range of creative advertising/marketing services, including brand development, graphic design, video production, product promotions, publicity, social media management, website development and redesign, and copywriting.
The Pod loves unfolding the stories of such varied clients as a New York-based fashion line, Star & Shield Insurance and Tallahassee-Leon Federal Credit Union. The award-winning Florida State University College of Motion Picture Arts (FSU Film School) also retained The Pod to manage the nationwide campaign to promote awareness of the new digital animation and arts program in partnership with the renowned Digital Domain Media Group.
In January 2011, Sam left a position as Vice President of Growth and Brand Management at Florida Commerce Credit Union (now First Commerce Credit Union) to start Pea Green Solutions, the parent company of The Pod Advertising. During her 12-year tenure at Florida Commerce, Sam led innovative and award-winning marketing and public relations initiatives and managed an annual budget of around $1 million. Sam’s vision for The Pod is to think and act like your chief marketing officer — with an entire creative team at her disposal — and look for ways to maximize outcomes without wasting your marketing budget.
