So you want to know more about us (well… me!)?
I’m Aldo and I’ve been working in the creative, digital and marketing industry for more than 10 years. I’m not going to sit here and slate the industry – it’s a fantastic industry and one I’m so proud to be a part of. Having said that, it does have its ‘quirks’ and I’ve seen how frustrating it can be from a small business point-of-view.
For some people, the digital world can be scary and I believe that some marketing agencies use that to their benefit by bamboozling their clients and ultimately charge more than is necessary. I’ve been on the receiving end of those prices and it’s hard to fathom at times. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not looking to be a Robin Hood and take from the rich and give to the poor, but I strongly believe that getting your business’ name out there in this digital world doesn’t have to be expensive and out of reach.
In essence, 87Marketing started many years ago when I was helping some friends with web design, creative and general marketing.
This developed as more friends, and friends of friends, wanted websites creating, or advice on marketing and social media. As the frustration of bigger marketing agencies (as explained above… don’t worry, I’m not going into that again!) developed, I sensed a bit of a gap in the market. It developed further when I’d frequently see a local business with a hotmail or gmail email address on their business cards, or on the side of their van. This is just one example of how 87Marketing can help you.
I can help you take that first step into making your business look more professional. A website, custom domain and dedicated email addresses can be created for you, for an extremely affordable price.
How will a new website help me and my business, I hear you ask? Well, for starters, it will make your business look more professional and that’s never a bad thing. An incredible amount of research is done online and this adds a sense of confidence to any potential customers. And probabaly more importantly, think about when you need a service or product… where do you go? In many cases, the internet, surely?
What 87Marketing is not about is leaving you in the lurch once you’re set up. While there’s no insisting on any on-going retainer fees, we’ll always be here to help, and also not at extortionate sums of money.
So, whether it’s a website, some design work, guidance with your marketing or social media strategy, 87Marketing can help your business.
Right, ramblings over… I think you understand a little bit more about where I’m from, what the aim is and how I can help your business. Please let me know if there’s anything we can help you with – whether that’s just for a chat about moving your business forward, or actually doing it.
I look forward to hearing from you.
