Who are we?

Started in 2019, we set out on a mission to support entrepreneurs by applying design thinking to growth strategies.

We’ve got over 20 years of experience in helping our clients bring their ideas to market, and by adding applied design to the mix, we’re doing some crazy things that other agencies just haven’t caught on to yet.

We’re bringing user experience to the marketing process to optimize conversion.

We’ve created ad campaigns beating industry benchmarks by 10X.

We’re humanizing your social media content by bringing stories to your feed.

We’re overthrowing the algorithm by playing Facebook’s game (instead of trying to game the algorithm.)

We do it all by conducting human-centric research and applying it to your social media campaigns. This improves the results of both your organic and paid social media at the same time. And let’s face it, very few agencies offer both services – and even fewer are good at both. But we combined organic and paid social together because we believe they can work better together.

Kind of like our team:

Cheryl Woodhouse

Founder, Strategist, Veteran Digital Marketer

Cheryl has been in digital marketing for over 18 years, but don’t let that fool you – she’s still with it and hip, staying in touch with the latest in social media marketing to keep your business growing.

After a long stint as a freelancer, coach, and consultant, she founded Tactile as a way to help even more companies grow while creating good jobs for creative geniuses.

She believes that entrepreneurship is a path to income equality, and strongly supports minority-owned businesses – both through Tactile and elsewhere in her life.

Adele LaRiviere

Client Success Manager

Adele has been with Tactile almost since the very beginning (well, one could argue since BEFORE the beginning, as Adele and Cheryl had been working together on client work for years.) 

While she is far too humble to admit it, Adele is one of the people who makes our success possible.

She helps our clients navigate their day to day communications with our team, sorts out all manner of spreadsheets and data as needed, helps out with social media and graphics when we have to pull her in, and does literally anything we need to help our clients see the success they’re after.

Adele is a veritable Swiss Army Knife of client and business support skills, and we love her for it.

Rachelle Breland

Social Media Manager and Ops Specialist

With over 10 years of experience in running complex offices and operations, Rachelle is currently handling our clients’ social media posting and scheduling while also building our processes and operations, with an eye on one day being our operational lead.

When everything is running smoothly, Rachelle is the one who will spot another opportunity for efficiency and make us all work to fix it. But we love her anyway. 😉

If you’ve engaged us for social media services, chances are you’ll get to know Rachelle on a regular basis!
