What’s a Vant? No, it’s not some newfangled digital marketing technology. It’s shorthand for Vant Marketing’s founders, John and Jillian Sturdivant, who brought the concept to life in May 2016. Since then, it’s been a rocket ride from a home-based business with two people doing everything to a professionally run agency with key talent and a range of experience.
The idea for Vant Marketing came from John’s startup experience with Disruptive Advertising, a powerhouse in PPC strategy. Teaming with Disruptive as a technology partner and adding full-service social media and web development got our engines started. From there, SEO, reputation management, creative services, and long-form content strategy were added to bring us to full Digitally Propelled sm power.
WHAT’S THIS COOL PLANE?

Fast, highly efficient. Like us. #DIGITALLYPROPELLED.
