Marque Media Turns Two! From the most driven team to the best clients, we’ve got all we ever wanted…and we want more! Who would have known two years ago that our team would grow to such great proportions? Many aren’t aware of this, but Marque Media didn’t exactly start from some grand entrepreneurial vision. It all started when an investment banker-turned-fashion and lifestyle influencer was sought for her talent in growing an online presence—and the catch is, she was hesitant at first. How Marque Media “Accidentally” Started Fresh from building her brand from the ground up, our Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Co-Founder, Heidi Nazarudin, was tapped by fellow businesswomen to manage and grow their social media channels. She wasn’t too keen about it at first (and for the first five to six months, didn’t even bother making business cards or a website, thinking this may just be a side-hustle). But upon being shown a measly strategy and growth report (from an actual agency!) by one of her colleagues, Heidi realized she could do much better. Marque Media took over The Practice Beverly Hills starting June, during which the number of followers drastically spiked up Engagement rate on Honor MD’s Instagram channel improved after Marque Media took charge of the account After her 5th or 6th “accidental” client, Heidi launched Marque Media in April 22, 2017, and since then, it’s been a whirlwind of a ride. Now, Marque Media is a successful and widely acclaimed full-service communications agency teeming with the most creative people from all over the world. Where do we even begin talking about this glorious, life-changing adventure? Okay, let’s take a step back and let the numbers speak! 2017 Team Members Total Clients Serviced Services 14 22 3 Services Rendered: Branding Social Media Management Web Development 2018 Team Members Total Clients Serviced Services 44 70 5 Services Rendered: Branding And Identity Development Social Media Management Web Development Influencer Campaigns Photography and Videography (Content Creation) 2019 Team Members Total Clients Serviced happy and active clients on retainer Services 57 140 51 1 Agency that does it all: Branding And Identity Development Digital And Social Media Management Web Development Public Relations Influencer Campaigns Photography and Videography (Content Creation) Going In For The Long Haul In late 2017, Melissa Jones joined Marque Media as Chief Partnerships Officer (CPO) and Co-Founder. Melissa’s successes read like a who’s who of the entertainment, innovation and entrepreneurial spaces, having worked with some of the biggest brands since 1998: MySpace.com, The Vans Warped Tour, Pink, Microsoft, Comcast, Billboard Music Awards, Capital One, The Grammys, and Sundance Film Festival. Why a CPO? Melissa, along with Heidi, takes Marque Media’s role further by growing long-term relationships with our clients. We truly want to position ourselves as a partner to our clients and not just view them as ‘accounts to be serviced’. Ticking Off Bigger and Bigger Milestones From a small, up-and-coming social media agency to a full-blown digital communications and marketing agency that encompasses all your branding and business needs, Marque Media has grown into a team of achievers. With such a dedicated and talented team of people, we were able to run successful campaigns, help businesses grow, and reach the greatest of heights! For one, we became a Forbes Agency Council Member in 2018. Now, we don’t want to toot our own horn but that is HUGE. And we owe it all to our team members who may just be the most dedicated and passionate people in the world. Marque Media team members are part of the American Association of Marketing. We are also Facebook Blueprint and Shopify Partners-certified, and our principals are board members at Together Digital and Ellevate. We have a whopping number of wins that we’re not entirely sure what to feel aside from overwhelming gratitude to our clients. Okay, deep breaths. Let’s get our incense burning and go through a mini rundown of all the times we KILLED it. We are in luck for meeting like-minded clients along the way. This is because we never settle for mediocrity! Every partnership was signed with the utmost zeal and we squeal with every client’s success. Marque Media isn’t just here for the numbers! The statistics are beautiful to look at but we want each team member and each client walking away with a smile on their face at the end of the day. The last two years have been incredibly fulfilling for us and we are so happy YOU were part of it! We are so excited to take on BIGGER challenges and do BETTER work as we keep growing. Let’s leave a Marque in the grandest way possible.
