What's The Deal With The llamas

Llama Lead Gen was founded by Adam Yaeger while traveling around the world with a work/travel program called Remote Year. The name of his group was the Denali Llamas, and having spent significant time in South America, the llama made a memorable mark on him - literally and figuratively. 

 

Llama Lead Gen isn’t just a catchy name and cool logo - it’s a symbol of the birth of a global strategic marketing business at an exciting time in the evolving world of work as we know it. We have grown from an army of one to a global alliance of experienced marketers who are excited to tackle your marketing goals and challenges with you.
