Local Marketing Company Celebrates Five Years In Business
Sarasota, FL – (October 15, 2014) – Milestone Marketing Associates is pleased to announce an important milestone. October 1, 2014 marked the five-year anniversary for the Sarasota-based business.
“We’re thrilled,” said Matthew Anderson, president at Milestone Marketing Associates. “When we started this business five years ago the country was in the depths of the Great Recession. Most of the people I spoke to at the time either said we were crazy or incredibly brave to start a new business. Of course my answer was that we’re not brave. We’re just stubborn.”
As it turned out Milestone’s commitment and professionalism set them apart from other local firms. “We’ve seen several similar startups fail over the years,” adds Anderson. “The Sarasota market presents a unique challenge in that it’s a relatively small community, and it has more than it’s share of talented, creative entrepreneurs.”
Milestone has also demonstrated a willingness to adapt to the changing landscape of digital marketing. “Five years ago we thought we wanted to build an advertising agency,” explains Anderson. “Most people could see the writing on the wall [referring to the decline of traditional advertising], but the challenge for Milestone was figuring out how to apply our collective skills and experience as creative communicators to the Internet.”
Today Milestone builds custom websites and provides content marketing service on a retainer basis to local businesses. “We look for clients who appreciate working with professionals,” says Anderson. “Our business has never been about rapid growth or getting rich. We want to be here for the long haul helping local business owners grow their companies.”
