Who are you?
Wallaroo Media is a full service digital marketing agency. We specialize in make creative, compelling content and leveraging that content via social media, PR, and SEO.
Why Did you start your business?
We started this as a side project in 2009. We felt that we could provide extra value in the space for a good price and that was our foundation for the company.
What makes your business unique?
By combining content, PR, social media, design, and SEO, we are able to produce fantastic results with our holistic approach. We strive to think of creative and innovative ways to market our clients. We have done the same for our own company (this includes dressing up as wallaroos and doing fun pranks around town).
What's the biggest mistake you've made with your business and what did you learn from it??
Our biggest mistake has been taking on clients that did not share our values or mission. We've done this in the past and it does not turn out well for anyone. We don't do this anymore.
what big goal do you have for your company and how do you plan to achieve it?
We want to become a boutique ad agency with a focus on the digital experience. We are working hard towards achieving this goal right now by making the right internal hires and producing high quality work for our clients. We are gradually getting there, and it's a great ride.
what advice or tips do you have for people wanting to start their own business or follow their dreams?
Take the leap! If you have a dream or business idea that you are really passionate about and don't act on it, you will regret it until you do. Save yourself from that heartache :). Just take the leap and do it! What's the worst that can happen - you fail? Who cares! Then you can just get back up and try again. Don't be afraid to fail. And if you're idea is good enough and you work hard enough, you will most likely succeed. Good luck!
