What area of business are you in?
We are a full service digital marketing agency tailored towards small businesses. We boost brand awareness, create avenues for lead generation and achieve our client’s growth goals, through planning, strategies, execution and measurements to ensure a high ROI.
How did the idea for your business come about? Or what sparked a change in your current business?
We noticed a need in the small business community, especially for owners who also perform the services or create the products they sell. They are too busy running their business they don’t have time to market themselves effectively for growth.
What were the biggest initial hurdles to building your business and how did you overcome them?
The biggest hurdle was believing in my capabilities to successfully run a business. I’ve owned a business before but nothing on this level and it was exciting but terrifying at the same time. I over came it but remembering that I’ve overcome every obstacle so far. I can do this.
Anything you would do differently in hindsight?
Started sooner, I let self doubt push my dreams out. Now that I’m here nothings going to stop me.
What would you say was the single most influential factor in your business success?
My personality, marketing is about likability. People buy from people they like. I genuinely care for each of my clients and they can see the care in how I handle their projects and interact with them.
What advice would you give to an upcoming entrepreneur locally or internationally?
Stop doubting yourself. You are more than capable and there is room at the top for everyone so go get your spot.
Which product or service you offer that you are you most proud of?
That’s hard, I’m proud of all of my services but if I had to pick one it would be my branding strategy. I love helping clients develop their vision and missions. Helping to cultivating the story you want the world to think of when they see your brand and executing it, I love that
Have you worked with me before? If so, how have I helped?
This is our first time working together in this capacity. Although you taught me how to change a tire.
Thanks for allowing me to feature you in my Spotlights! I personally love how you described your logo on your website:
“Our logo the golden bullseye came from our commitment to be reliable, create accuracy in our marketing approach, be innovative and most important help our clients hit their targets.”
