About Us
Pop of Colour is a boutique music marketing agency that specializes in persona building and helping artists make their fans feel special, online or in the real world. Our bright and colourful company is based in Ottawa, Canada, and has clients from around the world.
The Pop of Colour Way is…
Authentic
Just as stage makeup enhances an actor’s facial features for a large audience, we help artists enhance their personalities. At Pop of Colour, authenticity comes first; we merely teach our clients how to turn up the volume.
Bubbly
Creatives are living in a golden age where they can give fans the direct access they have been dreaming of all these years. At Pop of Colour, we believe in the mindset of serving fans, and making them feel special.
Clever
We stay on top of trends in marketing strategies and present them in a friendly style, while still getting into actionable detail. At Pop of Colour, our clients, readers, and viewers are intelligent and we treat them as such.
Dazzling
Never underestimate the power of a sparkly business card, or a genuine conversation about how we can be of service. At Pop of Colour, we strive to make impressions that sparkle on the inside, even after the glitter wears off.
What They Say
Our Bright & Colourful Community
Meet Our Team
Clarence Charron
Founder & CEO
His entire life, Clarence had a particular gift for reading, and building personas. It was such a niche skill that he built it into a business within the field he came from, music. Beginning as a country-folk songwriter, Clarence also has a diploma from Algonquin College in Music Industry Arts, where he was awarded the Music Business Builder award in its first year of being given out, and was asked to return and teach Music Business Management before ever walking across the stage to graduate. Past companies he has worked for include Cyber PR, Talent Nation. He frequently hosts workshops and gets calls from founders in Silicone Valley asking how his latest blog post could possibly know what they were working on. Only after Pop of Colour began taking off did he finally realize that the reason he was so good at it was because he had been building a person around himself the whole time, came out as transgender, and lives a much happier and equally colourful life with his two cats and endless tea lattes. Clarence now use these personal-building superpowers for good – to help artists turn up the volume on their natural personality to cut through the noise and build loyal fanbases.
