Welcome back to Making a Difference on BluHorn TV where we feature different executives business owners in the marketing advertising industry and all the good things that they’re doing for their communities. Joining us from Cape Coral Florida we have Alex with KCo ad agency. Welcome to the program Alex.
Thank you very much. Thanks for having me.
Tell me a little bit about KCo and the services you offer your clients.
Kco ad is a decade old full service ad agency. Obviously everything from digital implentation to traditional advertising.
Excellent. How did you get your start?
My wife Kelly started this a little over a decade ago. She has been in the advertising arena for about twenty five years now.
I saw on your website you focused a lot on Web sites, social digital strategies, creative work. What is the most enjoyable for you personally to work on with client?
Probably the digital creation going in especially on the social side, it’s fun it’s interactive it’s a lot of fun.
Why is it important for someone to hire an outside agency. So if you’ve got a corporations they’ve just doing all the marketing or that service in-house. What’s the advantage of bringing in someone from the outside.
I think the primary thing is going to be that you’re getting a team rather than an individual. If you’re hiring from within, number one you typically are going to hire a certain skill set. When you’re hiring an advertising agency like ourselves, we have someone for each and every department at least one. So you’re actually hiring a team that can put things together for you more efficiently.
Making a Difference. Talks about the involvement. Are there certain organizations or one in particular that you support in time, talent and or treasure.
Absolutely. There’s one we’ve been involved in for over 10 years. It is Bikers for TaTas. It’s a Breast Cancer awareness organization.
Excellent. So if you look at the next three years what do you think some of the biggest changes that are affecting the marketing advertising industry are gonna be.
Well digital strategies is going to be the hugest thing and as everything morphs, everybody is gonna have the opportunity to have their own channel and there’s gonna be a lot of different ways that you’re gonna be able put your product or your inventory out to individuals. As it has changed in the last six or seven years dramatically, it’s probably gonna do the same thing probably exponentially at that time.
Excellent. Well thank you for joining us today and to find more about Keiko and Alex and Kelly and their company visit us at BluHorn.com. We look forward to seeing you next time on Blue Horn TV.
