The talented, creative types at Banton Media are experts in their field, given their impressive list of clients. Like many businesses across the Grand Strand, the multimedia marketing agency started out relatively small when it launched in 2010. Now, 13 years later, the company boasts a bevy of local customers and others throughout the country. Brandie Guerrero-Perez is the owner but notes, “Our founders are the ENTIRE team. Everyone in our Banton family has founded parts of Banton Media.” 

The full-service media, marketing, and advertising company assists clients with integrating multiple advertising mediums and building their clients’ brands through such means as logo designs, web design, videography, commercial photography, and “any graphic designs, from business cards to signage and everything in between,” explains Guerrero-Perez. Banton cultivates and creates social media management, including all Google and YouTube digital platforms, SEO, and traditional media placement. 

“This allows small and large businesses to have one company manage all their needs. Banton Media is proud to offer white labeling services as well to companies with like-minded goals but limited employees,” she notes. “We can work with small to large companies, offering the best options for their investments. We can provide a service to any company.” 

Having all her employees under one roof again (post-COVID) is a big plus for Banton Media, Guerrero-Perez says. 

“That’s something we missed during the past few years… we can communicate as often as necessary now, ensuring we consistently collaborate so everyone is in sync.“Being able to work with so many different types of clients, from Papa John’s Pizza to Health Care Partners of South Carolina to McCutchen Vaught Geddie & Hucks, P.A., to Miller and Associates, along with so many others in between, allows us to stay creative and work with some of the best people in business in our community, including Sophie & Sierra’s Place as an amazing organization brought to our community” she explains. 

Banton Media is committed to working closely with local affiliations such as Conway Downtown Alive, SC Works Waccamaw, Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development, the grandstrandmag.com Conway Chamber, and the Myrtle Beach Chamber. “These affiliates allow us to focus on the local businesses,” Guerrero-Perez says. In a world filled with marketing and ad agencies, like-minded companies need to stay aggressive and competitive and be able to push the envelope, on occasion, creatively. 

“Our success story is survival, really,” she notes. “As a small business with big goals, we made it through some tremendous struggles, personally and professionally. So I believe now, more than ever, that surviving in life IS our most significant success, and surviving as a company has been a miracle in itself. “Our clients are a gift, as they have supported personal tragedies for our team with patience and continue to support us and have given us a great gift… To still be Banton Media, only better than ever!”
