In the ad they state that they are one of Florida's most successful and innovative marketing and advertising firms in the area.  Riiiighhht.  That's why they don't have a website, and that's why their Facebook Page was just created.  Their a dominant force alright.
Innovate Industries and Next Global Solutions are also two other Smart Circle Companies in the Tampa, Bradenton, and Sarasota Areas.  The ad above is a great example of their handiwork.  With a few exceptions, that is the ad you will see over and over again.
