In 2000 I was working for Hawk Retrofit, Inc. a window and door repair company (family owned). We started a website for Hawk selling window and door parts online. It took off and we were selling parts all across the country. Back then it was not too hard to make an impact online as there was little competition still. The small site grew to an extensive one and at one point we were selling over $25,000 per month in hardware.
Between 00′-04′ I designed several other websites under my company What Links, LLC.
In 2004, I arranged for the sale of the website Hawk Retrofit.com to Glass Distributors, Inc. a large wholesaler of glass for the DC Metro Area. I was employed at Glass Distributors, Inc. briefly as a salesperson and admin of the website. During my stay at GDI I came in contact with the New Balance Annapolis shoe store and was contracted to design a website for that store.
In late 2004 I began working full time at New Balance Annapolis as the Website Designer/Admin and General Manager. We have been able to generate a great amount of online sales over the past few years. For privacy reasons I do not want to give the exact sales figures but for reference purposes I can say that the sales generated are impressive and count for a substantial percentage of overall sales. Even while being employed by New Balance Annapolis I have created additional websites and updated and maintained various ongoing projects as a subcontractor.
In April 2009, Maggio Web Advertising, LLC. was officially formed. My focus has been working with local businesses in the Annapolis, MD area.
Maggio Web Advertising uses a website as just one part of the marketing strategy. We also use Email Marketing from Constant Contact and Social Media such as Facebook and Twitter. Although basic SEO is included in our Web Design Packages we has also partnered with Adsnext on certain projects for Advanced SEO and Lead Generation Services.
In addition we have partnered with Reach Local for pay per click ventures and Idle Time for text messaging, restroom advertising and other unconventional marketing strategies.
Remember that no single company can be the answer to all of your needs. That is why it is important for you to work with a company that is willing to introduce you to various industry experts and work with those experts to reach your company’s goals.
