Hi my name is Stephen and I’m glad you stopped by. I want to tell you about my journey and a little bit about our company.
It all began back in the late 90’s (doesn’t that sound so long ago!) when I started designing websites. I taught myself basic HTML (like many programmers do) and really enjoyed creating a presence on the web. It was fun and thought that it was cool that you can display anything you want on your website. Fast forward to a few years later and I graduated college with a Marketing degree and a Computer Science degree. Yes I was a bit indecisive back then so have 2 bachelors! Around 2005 I taught myself WordPress and was hooked! Around that time I also started a web design company.
I always had a passion for marketing and helping other businesses. In late 2012 I started helping friends and family generate more traffic to their websites. SEO became my new obsession as they started to land new clients with my traffic. I was using my marketing and computer skills to get them more business. I win win for me and them (makes paying back those loans not as painful)!
Generating traffic wasn’t new to me since I did it for my own blogs and websites. The fact that I could help other people is when the lightbuld exploded and MarkYourMedia came to life. We are a smaller company but our clients like the feel of working with a smaller company rather then a big agency. We have a solid team of employees that all work from home. I didn’t want to waste money in a big, shiny office and it allows us to pass that cost savings to you. I only work with other people that are extremely passionate about what they do.
We teamed up with a partnering business, Liz Pedraza LLC, because they have the same obsession for Social Media as we do for SEO. Like myself Liz’s company is always learning the best techniques and implements them for all our clients. Together we work as a team and offer you the best package out there.
Since we both share the same passion for our industries we’re in the process of developing a training course (available Fall 2013)! We will teach you everything you need to know to perform your own SEO, Social Media, and Reputation Mgmt. We know that some companies have a smaller budget and this is a great option to do-it-yourself or have us train one of your staff members.
If we’re the type of company that you would want to work with then contact us today! We would love to help your company grow.
