Yeah, we’re a little different. That’s what makes us so good.

We’re Clever Girl Marketing, a creative agency in Cleveland, Ohio, founded in 2015 by marketing strategist Heather Drago.

Heather saw that businesses of all sizes needed top-notch marketing prowess — but they weren’t always able to get it. So she called upon her fellow superheroes and, together, we’ve helped scores of businesses and organizations achieve success.

We’re experienced in both B2B and consumer marketing, and our services fill the spectrum from branding and advertising to all things digital, including websites, content, email and social media marketing.

If you’re looking for some clever, creative people who can help you get the most out of your marketing budget, then give us a call. We just might be the right fit for you.

Meet Heather Drago

Principal / Chief Strategist

Clever Girl founder Heather Drago has this whole left brain/right brain thing going on, which enables her to combine a fine arts education with more than 25 years of practical experience to create marketing strategies and creative campaigns for consumer and business-to-business clients.

Heather has worked for nonprofit organizations, small businesses, and marketing agencies in several capacities, notably as a systems analyst and consultant, website and application developer, department manager, project manager, and strategist. In her varied career, she’s also had a successful run as a professional studio artist, creating mixed media paintings by commission and for gallery exhibitions. She studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art, and her work is included in several permanent collections, including that of The Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

A transplant from Southern California, Heather is an enthusiastic fan of Cleveland, her adoptive home town. She’s passionate about sharing the evolving story of the city’s rebirth, and promoting the great work being done by Greater Cleveland artists, entrepreneurs, and nonprofit organizations.

How to be a Superhero

The Clever Girl Creed

Our mission is to empower people to grow and prosper – from client businesses and organizations, to individuals, to our greater community – by delivering remarkably intelligent marketing strategies and services, and by sharing our knowledge with others.

Put simply, we go forth boldly and use our powers* for good to make the world a little bit smarter, a little more colorful, and whole lot more fun.

“Do you have to be a girl to work with Clever Girl?”

We get this question all the time and here’s the answer: of course not, silly. But you do have to be clever.

Clever Girl was named in honor of the super women who came before us and to inspire all those that follow. We’re big believers in “girl power”. If you’re cool with that and are interested in working with some smart women, then get in touch. We’re always open to meeting new people with mad skills.
