We are a brand marketing management & consulting company in the greater Nashville area. For over 18 years (cg) has helped businesses, organizations, and brands grow and get noticed. We specialize in providing brand management solutions and digital marketing services, delivering value for our clients and their customers. Our story started back in 2003, when Corey Gonzalez, a.k.a.

We produced, managed, and participated in hundreds of projects and helped countless artists, professionals, businesses, and brands achieve results along the way. In 2015, we narrowed our focus from a 360˚ music label, recording studio, and full-service creative agency to a brand marketing agency and relocated to operations to Nashville, TN.

Today, we provide brand management solutions and digital marketing services focused on delivering value for our clients and their customers. We are brand-focused, customer-focused, and most of all, value-focused.

What We Believe

We believe strategy is step #1 on the path to success and every professional, business, and brand has an opportunity to stand out and connect with their customers. Often, businesses operate below their potential. They struggle with positioning their brand for success or marketing what they do best.

Why We Exist

(cg) Brand Solutions exists to help clients and partners build, grow, and get to where they want to be.

Where We Work

We are based in Nashville, TN and serve clients in the US.

The best way to grow your business and increase sales is to build a brand marketing system to attract new customers, nurture existing ones, and elevate your brand’s position. The good news is, we can help!

While great products and service can help you retain customers and expand via word-of-mouth, a well built strategic brand marketing program can help your business grow and scale continuously. Think of it as an investment in your future success! According to Gartner’s 2020 CMO survey, companies spend an average of 11% of their annual revenue on marketing.

“The amount of revenue businesses allocate to marketing has increased steadily over the past 10 years, with average marketing percentage of revenue landing around 13% in 2021, compared to just 8% in 2011.

B2B Product industries allocate, on average, roughly 10% of revenue to marketing, which is similar to B2C Services (10.1%). B2B Services and B2C Product allocate higher numbers of 15% and 18%, respectively, of total revenue.” From a recent Hubspot article

We created the Brand Marketing Support Plan to assist startups and small businesses who want to grow, have a marketing budget, and are willing to invest in an integrated brand marketing support & management program custom tailored to help them achieve their business, brand, and marketing goals.
