The Dock Line Celebrates Local Marketing Success with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony!
On August 3rd, 2023, the local business community, the Lake Conroe Chamber and Greater Magnolia Parkway Chamber of Commerce came together to celebrate The Dock Line with a ribbon cutting ceremony. New and old faces alike filled our office headquarters to tour the space, meet our team and learn about our services. We love to invest in our local community, and it was a joy to see business owners, professionals and friends join us to celebrate all that The Dock Line has to offer!
Looking back to where we began, this event was a special moment for all of us to see how far we’ve really come. Our Co-owner, Colton Rucker sees this as a turning point for The Dock Line, and is expectant for the future.
“This marks the beginning of a new chapter for our company,” Colton says. “We’re excited to work with more diverse people in the community now that the North Houston population is growing so quickly.”
Where it all Began
It all started in 2001, with Dock Line Magazine’s first publication, begun by Verle “Ozzy” Osborne. With articles coming from SJRA, Texas Parks and Wildlife, Lone Star Groundwater, local realtors, insurance agents and more—each magazine had interesting information coupled with business advertisements. The magazine is now distributed to the cities of Conroe, The Woodlands, Magnolia, Tomball and Huntsville.
After several years of success, Ozzy met Colton Rucker, who had been running his own digital marketing agency. After meeting together, Colton and Ozzy decided to merge their businesses into one—offering print and digital marketing services under one name. Three years later, The Dock Line is known as a trusted local marketing agency, dedicated to seeing businesses thrive and our community grow.
“Never would I have imagined this magazine would go digital,” Ozzy said. “I am so pleased to see this team taking The Dock Line to new heights.”
As Montgomery County, North Houston and the surrounding areas continue to rapidly grow in population—we at The Dock Line see the growing need for a full-service marketing and print advertising team. The Dock Line now has a wide variety of marketing services to better serve the community: web design, copywriting, video production, a podcast studio, social media marketing, and more. We plan to continue expanding our team of professionals and our facility to better serve our community.
Let Us Help Your Business Thrive
At The Dock Line, we understand that many businesses struggle with the same problem: keeping your day to day operations afloat while developing a brand image that attracts new customers. Are you spending money on marketing, but not getting results? Do you have an online presence that you’re proud of? Are you utilizing print advertising? Are you worried you’ll be passed up by more savvy competitors?
Don’t worry, these are common issues among many businesses no matter the size or growth. At the end of the day, most people don’t have the time to work on their brand image or think about marketing—so it gets pushed to the back burner. If you’re looking for help growing your online presence and audience, we offer a variety of marketing and SEO services to boost your brand awareness.
Most companies will admit that their website is an embarrassment and extremely outdated. More than that, most don’t even know who visits their website or how to turn visitors into customers. The truth is, your website will either aid in the growth of your business, or get lost in the sea of digital noise.
At The Dock Line, we have an experienced and highly skilled Web Team consisting of a Graphic Designer, Developer and SEO Copywriter. These website experts know not only how to make your website look amazing, but truly capture your voice and brand in a way that highlights your best features.
The number of people who listen to podcasts has significantly increased over the years. Podcasts are easy to listen to anytime, and provide a source of knowledge, self-improvement and entertainment. Recording a regular podcast for your business can attract high-quality customers, a loyal following, and establish you as the authority in your industry.
When you search for your product or service in Google, is your website nowhere to be found?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, and refers to improving the quality and quantity of traffic to your website. The goal of this strategy is to help your business become more visible and competitive in organic search engine results. This can be accomplished by optimizing various aspects of your website, including its written content and HTML coding structure, so that it ranks higher in search engine results pages. Our team will help you develop a clear SEO marketing strategy, and develop each piece of the marketing framework for you.
Through our years of marketing experience, we’ve noticed that the best way to grab someone’s attention is through a professional video. At The Dock Line, we use visual storytelling to engage your audience and connect with them on a deeper level. Not only do they need to know about the products you sell, but the story behind why you do what you do. Once people can engage with the personality of your company and what you stand for—you’ll have loyal customers.
And don’t worry about being camera shy—our experience in the broadcast industry allows us to train you for the camera with our interview-style approach.
Social Media Marketing
Advertising on social media can be very intimidating at first. Everyone online has access to see what you’re doing. Yet at the same time, if you don’t use a good strategy, no one will see you at all! However, if your audience is hanging out on social media, that is the best place to reach them.
The Dock Line simplifies social media marketing by only focusing on the strategies that produce real, consistent results for your business. We implement social marketing strategies designed for growing your brand, and develop a proven system to nurture those leads into real customers.
