Years of Experience
“We Started our Company to Help Local Businesses Succeed Online”
Back in the mid ’80s, after creating and managing the Vega Hispanic Yellow Pages in the nation’s capital, we went on to become the number one publication of its kind in the US for five years running with more than 1,600 satisfied advertisers. Twenty years later, we were approached by a group of investors from Boston, and our family-owned business was bought out.
During the early 2000’s Google became the yellow pages nightmare as they gradually replaced the 100+-year old industry of printed yellow pages, and became the almighty search engine that it is today, enjoying a whopping 99,000 searches per second.
We knew that traditional advertising would not be the same, and we had to quickly embrace the digital space. Ten years ago, a cool website and advertising online in a couple websites were good enough to have a decent digital presence. However, having a digital presence today involves having a strong social media presence and plenty of positive reviews across a few websites.
It is very likely that a strong digital presence will look completely different ten years from now.
