The Distinctive EdgeThe Distinctive Edge


Characteristic of one person or thing, and so serving to distinguish it from others.

We are committed to promoting the growth of our clients by representing them with the highest standards of integrity.

The Distinctive Edge has a better way of marketing. In the past, companies faced with this situation initiated more aggressive sales campaigns, often including concentrated telemarketing and direct mail programs.

But these days those same campaigns often do not produce the results that companies want.

In the modern world it is necessary for businesses to rethink their existing marketing strategy and shift their focus to more innovative ways of new customer acquisition and to protect their customer base.

Client Services

The Distinctive Edge is a privately owned company that performs sales, client acquisitions and retention for Fortune 100 companies. We first opened our doors in Philadelphia in 2004, but quickly realized that Distinctive’s talents were needed in the greater Baltimore market. Our relocation to Maryland was successful and we went on to expand to Philadelphia, Washington DC, Northern Virginia, Portland, Boston, Seattle, Las Vegas, and Denver.

Grow your career!

The Distinctive Edge consists of both senior and junior account executives who are precisely trained to implement solutions that increase and retain the customer volume of our campaigns.

We come from a variety of backgrounds, degrees, and cities across the US. But our common link is our incredible energy, enthusiasm, and ability to work with each other to accomplish our personal and professional goals.
