One Net Marketing Expands
May 10, 2012
(News Release) VICTORIA — Digital marketing agency One Net Marketing has celebrated five years in business by moving into a new 2,000-square-foot office on Johnson Street and hiring three new employees.
“We founded the company right before the recession hit,” says co-founder Dylan Touhey. “But there has been tremendous growth in the digital marketing space. And it has been a fun ride. We are really proud of our growth.”
The agency offers digital marketing strategy, using in-bound channels such as social media, blogs, and search engine marketing. Their clients include B2B software firms and B2C content sites in Australia, China, Japan, New York, California, and the U.K.
In February, one of their clients, Uptake.com, a travel advice site, made national business headlines after being acquired by Groupon.
While One Net Marketing’s client-base isn’t local, the growing number of technology firms on Vancouver Island and local digital marketing talent makes Victoria an attractive choice.
“We were a bit of entrepreneurial nomads in the beginning days,” says co-founder Nicole Sorochan. “And we were tempted with setting up an office in San Francisco or Palo Alto. But you can’t ask for a nicer place to work and live than the Island. We have also really enjoyed supporting local initiatives such as our work on SaveMaryLake.com.”
One Net Marketing looks forward to settling into its new office — and calling Victoria its permanent home. The One Net office has also incorporated three one-person companies into the space as they grow, in a “selective” co-working model. Joining the One Net office is Evan Leeson, founder of Catalyst Internet; Maureen Levitt, regional executive of SuperChannel; and Brett Gaylor, director of Mozilla Popcorn.
