“We do the HEAVY Lifting for you!” is often used to underline the skills and expertise to deliver performance and results beyond a client’s capabilities. Over the last year at Banton Media, “HEAVY Lifting” has become a literal rallying cry for Banton’s team leaders. One in particular has taken it to a whole new level! Caustin Sutton, Director of Social Media Marketing, is doing serious “heavy lifting.”

Banton Media is a full-service marketing agency providing strategic advertising/marketing/promotion campaign management and implementation. Celebrating their 10th year, Banton is one of the Grand Strand’s leading agencies, offering creative services like photography/video/graphic design/brand development; design/development of dynamic websites; strategic SEO/SEM; digital marketing and Google advertising; social media targeted marketing; eye-catching public relations; and leading-edge delivery of traditional media. Team Banton blends their skills and expertise to create high impact marketing strategies that produce increased sales and brand recognition for their clients. 

During a typical year, Banton commits dollars and resources to many charitable causes. But 2020 wasn’t typical. Banton went through periods of not being able to meet in person with clients; couldn’t participate in fundraising events; and implemented best practices to keep clients/employees safe and healthy. Some Banton team members took the opportunity to get in better shape, to eat healthier, to get stronger. A number of team leaders challenged each other to lose weight; others to gain muscle. Caustin, Banton’s Director of Social Media Marketing, took a next step by entering a number of strong man and powerlifting competitions, despite only starting serious powerlifting less than two years ago. Recently, Caustin took first place in the heavyweight division of the Team Foundry Strongman 

Competition in Wilmington, North Carolina. His colleagues at Banton are proud of their obviously strong teammate! Yes, at Banton Media, we definitely can do the “HEAVY Lifting” for you!
