Ants Support Electric Lime Gala

In what has become an annual tradition, AcrobatAnt supported this year’s Electric Lime Gala (ELG), a fundraiser for Tulsa’s Discovery Lab. Three Ants were directly involved with organizing the event: Dell and Audrey Chambers, who served as co-chairs, and Annie Nelligan, who was part of the planning committee and designed most of the event materials. We also filled two tables with Ants and their guests, and enjoyed a spectacular evening of great food, dancing, live auctions and more. The 2019 ELG was a huge success, raising more than $118,000 to support Discovery Lab programs for area schools. About Discovery Lab... Read More

Honoring Diane Lissau Davis

In an ant colony, workers protect—and rely on—their queen. We have lost ours. On Tuesday, November 6, Managing Partner and Creative Services Director Diane Davis left this world after suffering a heart attack at the age of 45. Our grief is beyond words. She was a gift given to us for far too short a time. With deep love and great sympathy for her family, we honor Diane. In lieu of flowers, please donate in her honor to Make a Wish – Oklahoma® or the Oklahoma Animal Alliance Pawsitively Pits Program. Rosary Monday, November 12, 2018 7:00 p.m. Church of... Read More

10 years: A look back and a look forward.

AcrobatAnt celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. What have we learned? Well, the five Ants who have been here since the beginning—owners Angela Harless, Diane Davis, Danny Sadler and David Downing, and Associate Creative Director Bryan Cooper—have learned a few things, among them: Hard work, in the vast majority of cases, supersedes great talent. If you have great talent who also possess a great work ethic, consider yourself lucky. We’re lucky. Never say “never.” Always say “always.” Our best project is our next project. Work hard. Play hard. Time flies. If you want a little context to go with the... Read More

Getting Over the Hump

The Ants assemble at 9 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for “huddle.” These short meetings are designed to keep everybody in the loop about regular agency stuff, plus a little fun to get us ready for the day. Those with “huddle duty”—groups of three or four Ants—are in charge of coming up with an activity or some kind of presentation on Mondays and Wednesdays. (Fridays, or “Freaky Fridays,” are set aside for reviewing some of the best work of the week.) Mondays are typically reserved for puzzles, brain-teaser games—something to get everyone’s neurons firing for the week ahead. But... Read More

March 13 – Google Partners Connect Event Recap

AcrobatAnt had a great turnout for our first time hosting the Google Partners Connect livestream event at our office. For those who couldn’t attend, here are a few takeaways to improve your video marketing through Google and YouTube: Two new targeting options are available for video advertising: life events and consumer patterns. Using TrueView for Action ads for direct response considerably increases campaign performance for CTA-based campaign efforts. Create your Google video campaigns in a separate account than your search and display campaigns. If campaigns are with the same account, due to last click attribution, your conversions could be attributed... Read More

The Great Escape

Escape artists. Challenged to a room with only a 30 percent chance of escape, the winning team managed to free itself with 17 minutes to spare. And they haven’t let anyone forget it. How do the Ants deal with the relentless pressure of keeping clients content? By spending an afternoon ferociously competing against each other for bragging rights, of course. In early March, the Ants invaded The Escape Tulsa for an exciting team-building event. If you’ve never experienced the escape-room phenomenon, the premise is simple: each team gets one hour to solve a unique mystery, leading to a code that will... Read More
