We’re A Trusted Team of  Marketers Helping to Increase Your Profits Year-over-year

Unsure where to invest in online marketing?

Need to improve your web, email and landing page design? SEO?

Need better strategic management of your marketing, Adwords or Facebook campaigns?

Ready to start using data analytics to improve your business?

Or, do you just have too much on your plate and are struggling to keep up?

We'll handle your digital marketing, so you can get back to running your business

I’m April Edwards, Owner, Lead Strategist, and Creative Director here at AE Design Co. After years of working with other marketing agencies, I was never quite satisfied with the results that these big companies delivered. Something always seemed to be lacking.

I’ve seen many other agencies fail to provide intimate and tailored, forward-thinking results that e-commerce businesses need.

Maybe you’ve worked with a freelancer, a friend, or tried to do the marketing yourself? Many times these scenarios lead to wasted time and frustration. The do-it-yourself approach, just like with construction, it doesn’t work well in marketing either. AE Design Co. has had to come in many times to clean things up and get our busy clients back on track.

Marketing takes the know-how to do it right.

We Wanted A More Personal Approach

So in 2012, I left the big marketers and founded AE Design Co. Working one-on-one with e-commerce clients meant I could give them the personal attention they deserved. I could sit down with each client and discuss their big dreams and goals and the marketing obstacles standing in their way. I could provide tailored advice instead of using the same checklist for everyone. And I could provide a better return on their investment.

And it worked!

  • We helped our clients reach the #1 spots on Google for high-quality keywords
  • We boosted traffic to websites by 788%
  • Bottom line... we helped our clients grow!

What was I proud of the most? Truly educating my clients on what all this “marketing stuff” means first! Only then could they more confidently make informed decisions to grow their business with a consistent flow of high-quality leads and better customers.

As our clients grew, we did too! We had to! So, I expanded our team to keep providing personal, tailored plans to each of our clients. Today, I get to work every day with this amazing team of strategists, marketers & developers.

It’s Impossible to Stay Up-to-date with the Constantly Changing Online Landscape!

The problem e-commerce businesses face when it comes to online marketing is it's constantly changing. It’s a full-time gig just to stay up-to-date on the latest changes. So when you’re already running a business, there’s not much room left in your day to read about the latest changes to Google’s search algorithm.

We tackle it for you! We build brand awareness and attract a steady stream of customers waiting to give you their business. We help you increase revenue with a smart mix of digital marketing, including:

What’s It Like Working With Us?

If you’ve been burned by a marketing company before, we get why you’re hesitant. Many marketers fill your time using meaningless jargon, no idea what they’re even doing for you with zero or expensive results.

We’re not like that.

You have goals and dreams and a big picture idea for your business. So we start there. We want to know what you see for your company in the future, and we work backward to directly address the problems in your marketing that are holding you back today.

What NOT to Expect

Super-long drawn out, fancy presentations without any real meat and potatoes
A long list of big-name clients that don't even relate to your business
An agency that doesn't take the time to understand your business
An overpriced agency that over promises and under delivers
Someone that doesn't value your time or collaboration
  • Instead, we’re an extension of your existing team, so we keep your goals first.

What to Expect: Our Core Values

Working with us is different, and we do that on purpose.

We’re Committed

We’re in it for the long haul with every client we work with, genuinely committed to their long-term success. We take a proactive approach to discovering new opportunities for improvement. This means more savings and more profits back into our clients’ pockets. Our clients don’t have to spend time managing us. They have peace of mind knowing that we’re on it for them!

We Keep You In The Loop

We’re known for our exceptional communication and ability to move projects forward. Clear expectations with an understanding of what we need to do along the way is our #1 priority from the first time we meet. Digital marketing and technology can sometimes be complicated, and it’s our goal to make sure that you understand everything.

We Collaborate

We’ve heard horror stories of stubborn designers, developers and marketers that want to do things their way and aren’t receptive to the client’s perspective. You know your business better than anyone, and we know the web. We’ll work together to bring the big picture and details together and build something awesome!

We Provide Strategic Thinking

It’s the key to our success. We dig deep to understand anything that may be holding you back and always start with a clear plan that fits with your business goals to get digital working for you.

Since everyone is online, you have a limitless amount of potential business. Our strategy-first approach will help you capture it.

We’re Resourceful

Digital marketing and the way we interact with consumers changes every day. New marketing channels pop up, and it can be hard to keep up with it all. Whether we’re managing your marketing for you or you just need some advice, we’ll be sure to provide the resources you need to succeed.

We’re Honest & Reliable

We do what we say we will. Crazy, right? Many clients have come to us after bad experiences of being locked into annual contracts with broken commitments.

Now you know about us. We’d love a chance to talk with you about your goals so we can help your business grow.

With other partners, you never know if you can trust them or if they are just trying to squeeze more dollars out of us… with AE Design Co. I never have that fear or vibe.
