Definitely a 'Do It Yourself' Kinda Story
You've heard the expression 'if you want to be able to afford it, do it yourself'? Well... yeah, ok we changed the saying a little bit there. But how many of you can relate? When Pearl Marketing Group first started out, we needed a digital home of our own. But we couldn't afford to keep paying someone hundreds of dollars (or even a few dollars) a month for maintenance and site changes, not to mention the cost of hosting on top of that. The obvious solution was that we'd do it ourselves. But we weren't coders or programmers and Word Press was so time consuming to figure out.
So we went in search of an affordable DIY option that would be compatible with Google and email marketing efforts. Oh, and we wanted to easily design it ourselves with no holds barred. Like most designers, we like coloring OUTSIDE the lines, not within the lines of very limiting software. (Can someone say 'Microsoft Word'?) And let's not forget our live social media feeds, videos and moving backgrounds. And because we don't like to code any more than you do, the website builder had to be quick to learn and easy to manipulate. No long learning curves, please! AND we didn't want to be afraid
of breaking the website if we changed the wrong thing. Our new site also had to be responsive (viewable on any device - small or large, Apple or PC). What can we say: as designers, we wanted to have our cake and eat it too! We were hard to please but after searching for a year, we found the perfect HTML5 platform that fit our budget AND our need for design options (no template sites here!) We loved it so much, we've become experts of this DIY 'website without code' technology.
A funny thing happened when we put together our first digital dream. We discovered marketing tools that follow the same criteria we had for our website: quick to learn, 'drag-n-drop' design, professional look-and-feel with social- and search engine-friendly functionality. Boy, were we in marketing heaven!
So instead of just offering graphic design and branding, we decided to roll all of our new-found tools into affordable packages for small businesses and non-profits. It's like the perfect marketing 'start up' bundle!
