“Creative without strategy is called ‘Art.’ Creative with strategy is called ‘Advertising.”

Jerod Norris lives where art and strategy intersect.

His multi-media company, Norris Advertising, has the creativity and business acumen to achieve advertising solutions across a wide variety of media. Those include a regional billboard company called Norris Outdoor; two print publications in Hometown Girard Newspaper and M.D. News Greater Kansas; and being a proud affiliate of AMI Radio Group of Pittsburg/Joplin.

“Advertising is my passion. We enjoy listening to business owners, being able to take an idea and mold it into something great,” Norris said. “But I don’t do it alone. You are only as good as the people you work with, and I feel we have the best people working with us.”

Norris Outdoor is the company’s biggest project with over 68 billboard faces spanning 28 locations all over the Four-State Area.

“I’ve been blessed to be in the advertising business for the last 13 years and a business owner for 11 years,” Norris said.

Outside of work, Jerod and his wife, Tammi, can usually be found chasing their five beautiful children.”
