About AdShark

Our goal is simple: deliver the best customer experience possible.

We know how it can be working with agencies, and we’re looking to change that experience. AdShark offers 100% transparency, proactive strategy (not reactive blabbery), and a shared investment in your company’s growth.

10+ Years of Growing Clients

In 2013, AdShark founders Rick Berg and Sean Maki met and created a business that was rooted in utilizing digital marketing channels to increase client performance. At the time, we were North Dakota’s first Google Partner and on-boarded our first ever digital advertising client.


Today, our marketing agency in Fargo, ND has 19 team members and have worked with over 200 brands on their digital advertising, SEO, and web projects. Through 2022, we’ve helped our partners generate over $250 million in online revenue and over 200,000 leads.


And that first client we talked about? They’re still with us today and have increased their annual revenue by over 1,300%. We love scaling businesses through strategic marketing, and would welcome a chance to scale yours.
