The RAEK Story.
Cory Crapes and Ryan Pool have worked together on projects for the last several years. In 2019 they teamed up to grow a restricted product company, and quickly realized the frustrations of not having access to most digital marketing channels. It was then they realized how powerful their first-party data was and used it to grow the business. The pair searched for a tool to make collecting and utilizing first-party data easier, but all the available solutions were built for enterprise companies with large budgets.
They designed RAEK as an alternative to the expensive, oversized enterprise level solutions. It gives small businesses the technology to collect and utilize first-party data at a price point that matches their resources and an ease of use matching their team size.
The RAEK team is made up of individuals from diverse business backgrounds, but we all have one thing in common - the desire to help small businesses succeed. We grew up in small towns where small business owners were our friends, family, and neighbors. Small businesses have always had an advantage over large companies because they truly know their customers. As business has moved online, the advantage has shrunk because data has the power to create relationships. RAEK was built to hand the advantage back to the little guys. The RAEK team is not only rooting for you, we're helping you build your most valuable asset.
