FINDING THE RIGHT RHYTHM
Fame House is a digital marketing agency with roots in the music industry. It helps artists and brands manage their digital presence, reach new audiences and connect with fans online. When the company was founded in 2011, it was a response to a drastically changing industry. Founder and CEO Mike Fiebach says Fame House led the charge in figuring out what it meant to carve a path in the “new music industry.” In an industry where keeping clients long term can prove to be challenging, Fame House has built its success on constantly pushing the team to succeed, trying new and innovative things and taking calculated risks to show clients how valuable the company can be.

Today, great employees foster the company’s rapid growth. Each member of the Fame House team is strategically chosen for their skills in digital marketing, social media, merchandising, e-commerce, design, business development and client relations. “I always hire people who I think are … smarter than me. I believe it’s one of the keys to a successful venture. I think anyone who wants to start or run a business has to lose their ego, and delegate tasks and projects to people who will be better at completing them,” Fiebach says. In addition to its employees, Fiebach attributes Fame House’s success to its ability to remain nimble. “The business world moves fast, the digital music industry moves even faster, and we’ve had to continuously adapt to change,” he says.
