The Altisima Story

Altisima is a Spanish word with interpretations that range from very high to soaring, but all refer to elevating or rising up. Altisima Marketing and Media was established in 2010 to help organizations of any size raise the level of their marketing efforts.

Formed as a virtual agency, Altisima’s mission is to deliver strategic creativity at reasonable rates for a wide array of clients. By combining founder Jim Burch’s strategic and creative skills with a network of talent that can be accessed as needed, Altisima is able to elevate the quality of marketing for both large companies and small business while keeping rates lower than many competitors.

Enabled by technology, Altisima Marketing and Media is able to serve a select roster of clients virtually anywhere around the world. Altisima delivers across a variety of print and electronic media but is not a social media company.
