why we got started
Fifteen Years Of Frustrations
Chris Beckwith-Taylor decided to start this new venture out of frustration; 15-years of it, in fact! After monitoring, managing, and tracking ROI for various companies across several platforms, the frustration became too much to handle, and a new solution was created. An open-source digital marketing platform designed to simplify the process and help optimize a business’s online presence.
But it doesn’t stop there. The modern digital world often lacks that human element that makes life special, so we focus on the human connection and help brands tell their unique story to the world. Our goal is to create marketing that is engaging and speaks to the human heart, and makes the robots and algorithms happy at the same time.
That’s why we created a business model and built a platform that relies more on collaboration than competition, taking cues from other industries to develop something that works for everyone. Some of the services we offer our clients include:
Search Engine Optimization – SEO is one of the most critical online services for any business. If you aren’t there to be found when your prospective customers search for what you have to offer, then someone else will be.
Social Media Marketing – Your customers and prospects are on social media, and you need to produce regular content to keep them informed and entertained across all social platforms. We provide you with a tool to easily manage all aspects of your social media marketing.
Website Creation – Your website says a lot about your business. Not only does it need to look great, but also it needs to function impeccably, provide useful and relevant information, and engage visitors to meet business goals. We create fast, secure websites that are engaging and easy to use.
Content Creation – Without quality content across all your online platforms, none of the other marketing activities will make a difference. We can help you create unique content that will engage both your customers and search engines.
Email Marketing – Email has been around since the internet started, and it continues to be the primary form of communication online. We can help you create effective email campaigns that will help build trust with your customers and boost conversions.
Reputation Management – Online, your reputation means a lot. We will help you monitor your reputation with automated alerts so you can stay on top of the various activities that can affect a company’s reputation online.
PPC Ads – Well-crafted Google Ads and Facebook Ads and expert reporting and analysis can help your audience find you and allow you to tweak and perfect your message for ultimate ROI.
Our Company Mission
To provide business owners and marketers with an open-source business platform and strategic services designed to simplify digital transformation and optimize their online presence, without breaking their brand.
Constantly improve client experiences, relying on four core values to do so: drive, innovation, respect, and agility. The focus on these principles ensures we’re keeping our clients and their businesses competitive.
Building and launching an effective SEO strategy that offers renters information rather than an interruption is imperative to running a successful new business in 2021. Green Stick’s SEO Team helped our newest luxury apartment community show up on page 1 in the Google, Bing, and Yahoo search results, BUT also contributed to the successful lease-up of 244-units within a 6-month period. Historically, Virginia Beach lease-ups have taken 12+months!
