A GLIMPSE AT OUR TEAM
Red Door Studios was founded by Joel Duncan and Andrew Macia, two marketers (and very cool dudes) from Toronto and California.
Before joining forces, they were both working as freelancers designing websites, writing content, and creating social media and SEO strategies for small businesses. They decided that by combining their resources and skills, they could target bigger companies, work more efficiently, and provide clients better results.
Although in their first year they did a lot of website design, they quickly noticed that the market was being saturated with website development companies who were offering insanely low prices. To add, more free options like WIX, Joomla, and WordPress kept popping up giving the general public relatively easy ways of creating their own websites for FREE. Today it is estimated that there are about 571 new websites being created every minute. That’s 822,240 new websites every day. That’s a whole lot of websites isn’t it?
But here’s the problem. The problem that Red Door decided to help companies solve.
The concept of ‘build it and they will come’ generally doesn’t work – even less so online. If no one knows that a website exists, what purpose is the website serving? Even if the website looks nice and works flawlessly, there is no guarantee that customers will ever find it in a Google Search. This has been Red Door’s mission ever since – To help companies get noticed by search engines and customers.
The basis of Red Door’s strategy is creating compelling content that both Google and customers love. However, we don’t just create content, we use White Hat SEO tactics to build links, distribute the content, and drive organic traffic to our customers’ websites. We’re a team of talented writers, graphic designers, photographers, SEO experts, and YES website developers.
