Hillary Bressler, founder and president of interactive marketing agency .Com Marketing is happy she doesn’t get statements anymore like ‘the internet is a fad and will fade away.’
“I found it humorous if people told me they thought the internet was a fad back in 1997 because I knew so much about the internet and how it was going to change the world, so I just let them talk. Now, these same people come up to me and say that they feel silly for having doubts about me or the industry I was embarking on as an entrepreneur,” says 36 year old Hillary Bressler.
"It's all about our doing great work. Any time a company survives and prospers over 10 years, you know you've had great people doing great work for great clients. Our employees, technical support professionals, designers, sales team, and support staff have made huge contributions to our success and continue to position us for the future."
Founded on April 1, 1997, the company began developing its interactive marketing solutions. Bressler saw that there were many websites being built, but there was not a service available to market these sites. .Com Marketing’s was quickly recognized as a pioneer in the interactive space and a leader in the advertising industry because of its unique blend of online marketing services.
.Com Marketing has a reputation for leading the industry with innovations. The company was one of the first interactive agencies to offer search engine marketing optimization (SEO) back in 1998 and one of the first online marketing agencies to partner with search engines to offer pay-per-click campaign services, then called Goto.com and now know as Yahoo!®.
From its roots as a provider of online marketing, .Com Marketing has evolved to a full-service provider of website design, email marketing, podcasting, blogs, online media buys and interactive video services.
