In 2009, Kurt and Dave founded an ecommerce start-up called Ethercycle. Back then, the dream of the independent retailer selling globally was alive and viable (or so we thought.) We built an ecommerce platform where folks could make their own online stores, and we rented them the content. Was it the brilliant million dollar idea we promised our significant others it would be? Not quite.
It turns out that our clients didn't want to rent the tools to build a website, they just wanted working websites. We met a lot of people who misunderstood what we were trying to do. These new friends did, however, understand that we knew the Web, and they would often ask: "Could you maybe help with our website?" The choice became clear. After a year of people asking for our help, we pivoted, and began helping businesses with their own websites full-time. Pretty soon we needed additional help, and for that, we developed a network of competent and honest experts to work with us.
At the end of 2013, we took a hard look at our past projects, and saw that our work for creative agencies and their clients was by far our favorite (and most successful) work to date. Take a look at these representative projects and you'll see what we mean:
The results don't lie. We work great with creative agencies, especially mid-sized ones. Maybe it's because we speak the same language, or maybe it's because we came from mid-sized agencies ourselves, all we know is we're a great fit.
We believe all agencies have certain holes in their capabilities or manpower. The only difference is whether they continue to operate within those shortcomings or choose to do something about it. We’d like to make it easy and profitable for you to do something about it.
Our successful agency partners start their client projects by including us as step zero. Before starting your next project, pick up the phone, give us a call, and tell us about it. We'll walk through feasibility, timeline, and budget with you. By bringing us in as early possible, you can avoid potential pitfalls later, ensuring a successful outcome, and ultimately impressing the hell out of your clients. Get in touch.
