Get to know One Foot Over

Never mix business with pleasure—unless doing business is your pleasure.

A match made in Marketing Heaven

A few years ago…

At a conference far, far away…

Stephen Brent May and Hami Vo Arrington met and had a glass of wine. Make that, a few glasses. It wasn’t long before these two realized they shared a knack for being the last to leave the office—and the party.

Since Stephen and Hami were both American Marketing Association (AMA) Houston board members, they spent a lot more time together after that trip.

During this period of collaboration, they shared ideas and helped build the 2016 and 2017 Crystal Awards into the most successful in the chapter’s history. That’s when a new idea was born, one too tempting to ignore–starting a marketing agency. Shhhhh don’t tell anyone. Wait! Actually, tell everyone.

Stephen and Hami decided to take the B2B marketing world by storm. They would lead with deep, thoughtful strategy to implement laser-focused, tactical marketing to drive growth for each and every client who walked through their doors (or inboxes).

What’s with the name?

Before they made the agency internet official, they realized they were missing one crucial detail—a name.

That’s when, in the middle of a video production meeting, the producer turned and said, “So, you guys like to take things one foot over the line?”

Cue lightbulb moment.

Sadly, the “So, You Guys” Marketing Agency already existed and they went with One Foot Over instead.

A bit of double entendre

For some clients, One Foot Over means achieving your goals and getting you One Foot Over the finish line. Through careful planning, smart strategy, consistency, and a whole lot of gusto, we provide you with that electrifying, victory-dancing, crowd-cheering moment of greatness. All you need is a goal—we’ve got the rest.

For others, One Foot Over means pushing the limits. We firmly believe that nothing interesting happens until you go rogue. When innovation, creativity, and intentionality (one of our favorite words of all-time) are anchored by smart, data-backed insights, the marketing magic really takes off. All you need is an open mind and willingness to try something new. We’re ready to take you further than you’ve ever gone before.
