Search Ad Marketing

Plymouth, MI 48170

Meaghan McCann

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
Google AdWords online certification program, MiSBTDC, GKIC Insider's Circle, GKIC Mastermind, New Media Mastermind, Social Media Michigan, BLN Mastermind, LA2M, A2AC. I give credit to each of these organizations for helping to shape my business.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
My first customer was Atilus, a web-design and development company from Florida. I found them during an online search. They hired me right after I achieved my Google AdWords certification and gave me experience with a vast client base.

Where did you find your first employee?
No formal employees yet, other than myself. Intern is from EMU, contractors were found on oDesk.

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?
Not yet.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
PNC Bank provided a line of credit when I started the company, but most has come out of my own pocket.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
Starting a business and keeping it in Michigan has allowed me to remain close to my extended family. It's professionally fulfilling because we're able to help other Michigan businesses with a part of business they haven't yet mastered.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
The change I'd like to see in our region is a faster growth rate of non manufacturing businesses. We have a huge base of 1) available qualified talent and 2) bright students coming out of our educational institutions. We need to keep them in Michigan by having the kinds of job opportunities that will entice them to stay.
