We had the pleasure of interviewing Jeff Carterson, Founder and CEO of SevenCube, a digital marketing agency based in Dallas, Texas. Here are the excerpts from the interview.
Hi Jeff, Great to have you with us today! Please share with our readers about your journey.
Hi, our agency, SevenCube, specializes in providing comprehensive digital marketing services to small business owners, including search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, and website design and development.
I've been in the digital marketing space since 2005, starting SevenCube right out of college. We were one of the first agencies to focus exclusively on small businesses by helping them expand their presence online. I started off by learning web design in high school when everything was still pretty analog, and we were just coming into the age of the internet as we know it today. I started charging small businesses for my services in order to pay for my first car, and once I was able to do that, everything changed, and I haven't looked back since.
Please tell us more about your company, SevenCube.
From those humble beginnings, SevenCube has grown into a remarkable full-service digital marketing agency that focuses specifically on small businesses. I noticed that small businesses had one of two options when it came to web design and digital marketing. Hire a relative or high school kid with little to no experience or shell out 10s of thousands of dollars a month to a professional marketing agency. We saw a clear gap in this space and no one willing to help “the little guy” out, specifically companies with 5-50 employees – the backbone of the American economy.
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
We believe in providing personalized solutions that are tailored to each of our client's unique needs and goals. We take the time to understand our client's businesses and their target audience, and we use this information to create a customized digital marketing strategy that is designed to deliver the best possible results.
We pride ourselves on delivering high-quality services, and we always strive to exceed our client's expectations. We are always looking for ways to innovate and stay ahead of the curve in the ever-changing digital marketing landscape.
Any message for our readers?
In dealing with small businesses for almost two decades, a couple of things have stuck out to me, which are that the most successful people work with a sense of urgency and are not afraid to experiment or be proven wrong. So my message to anyone reading this would be to go into whatever you do without fear and to be decisive. You'll be able to overcome any obstacles along the way.
Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?
You can learn more about how we help small businesses with their online presence and digital marketing by visiting the website. I also have a YouTube channel @jeffcarterson where I give away marketing secrets and methodologies that I've learned over the years.
Thank you so much, Jeff, for giving us your precious time! We wish you all the best for your journey ahead!
