Hey, it’s Dylan.
People ask me about “our story” all the time… while I left out a bunch of stress, long hours, hard work and sleepless nights, here’s the fun version of the story:
I started PRG in 2010 because a ton of customers were asking me for ideas and advice, they were struggling to find affordable marketing solutions and wanted real, proven results. So, I developed an idea to utilize the power of the internet and drive traffic to my customer using their online listings (mostly websites and Facebook pages). The results were staggering, businesses were growing and customers were happy! That idea later transformed into our Social Media Management service.
But it wasn’t until Thanksgiving 2012 when things really started to get serious. Sitting around my parents kitchen table, after a few beers, my brother Mike and I started to discuss a plan that would change the future of PRG and grow our services faster than we ever thought possible! Mike is a web designer, who, at the time, was struggling to find work in his field. That Thanksgiving, we decided he should quit his job and that we would work together! The plan was simple, I would sell marketing services and he would build/maintain them, we landed our first big customer on day 1 and never looked back. In fact, that first customer still does business with us today!
The two of us had a lot of fun working together from our small office, and we grew our customer base significantly. In 2014, we decided it was time for an expansion. We purchased two local businesses that year: C&I Graphics (print shop) and Ecolam (promotional products), and moved all 3 businesses into our current Kincardine location – but quickly learned we would need some help to keep up with the demand!
Fast forward to 2018 – we have 3 locations (Kincardine, Hanover, Saugeen Shores and counting), we do business all over the province, and have a staff of over 10 awesome people! We continue to offer the absolute best marketing services available, we specialize in marketing small businesses in rural areas and can help you grow your business!
Regardless of your budget, we have the amazing options for you!
2018 promises to be our best ever, more exciting news coming soon!
Save Money. Save Time. Grow Your Business.
Until next time!
