About Us

Rebel 42 is a digital marketing agency based in Minneapolis, MN. We specialize in driving qualified traffic through SEO, paid search, and social media marketing.

Who We Are

Our agency is a scrappy little band of rebels who have been bootstrapping from day one.

Heather and Jeff Coughenour started Rebel 42 in 2014 as a small B2B service-based company providing graphic design and copywriting services to consultants, realtors, landscapers, photographers… you name it.

Over the past few years, our team has gotten pretty damned good at digital marketing.

Along the way, we’ve picked up an amazing squad of experienced Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) experts who have made some pretty big waves of their own.

We understand businesses that expect results with their marketing and are looking for a data-driven strategy that pulls all the pieces together.

As bootstrappers, we’ve mastered digital marketing, web design, SEO, and copywriting to generate growth for our own business and we know how to get results for you too.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

“I had the pleasure of partnering with Heather and Rebel 42 on some Facebook Ads for our local restaurant. Heather was extremely helpful and patient with me as we got things started. She went above and beyond to ensure our brand and message were well received to our targeted guests. She even worked with me on some questions I had outside of our ad project. I appreciated the detailed reports and explanations of how our campaign was going. We received great response and traffic from the ad project. I’ve even reached out for another project for Rebel 42 to assist with!” Nikki Wallace

“So Heather Coughenour is my go to expert for all things digital, copy, SEO… basically the internet. I have always avoided the behind the scenes of my website but I read about Google’s ranking system and instantly went to Heather and got educated quickly on what I needed to do get to get my website out of the dark ages. Her insight has helped me go from a page speed of 9 to 80 with Google. I have also boosted my ranking to non-existent to first page searchable with legitimizing with up-to-date privacy, term and condition policies. I can go on and on but I am so glad she is the one person I can turn to when I need help.” Phylecia Jones

“Rebel 42 brought my business to the next level! Not only did they do a phenomenal job redesigning my website and packaging so that what I presented on the outside matched the quality on the inside, they continue to be a huge support in handling my digital marketing to help me grow! From branding and strategy all they way to planning and execution, they exceed my expectations at every turn. I don’t know how I would do it without them!”

“Working with Rebel 42 to develop and design the full branding for a personal project was easy, simple and fast. They took the time to listen to me and my vision, and then worked with my concept to deliver something that was creative, accurate and visually beautiful. It was very reassuring to have an open and easily accessible line of communication. It was a great experience and I am very happy with the results.” Laine Torres
