SOCIALDENTITY DIGITAL MARKETING (S.D.M.) IS A YOUNG AND CREATIVE DIGITAL MEDIA MARKETING AGENCY
S.D.M. is part of the parent company, New level Playing Field, launched in 2014. The Founder Val is of the perspective that all individuals and companies can only compete fairly if the playing field is leveled. New Level Playing Field started afterVal father's business of 30 years closed after struggling to stay open. After a rise in competition due to the convenience of online shopping and the emergence of Big-Box stores moving into the community.She found out after research that the demise of the business was also due to not understanding the digital era. Also, failing to adjust accordingly to meet the expectations set by technology and not being able to adequately forecast to prepare or make decisions regardingthe future.Other businesses were suffering as well and began to see a decrease in sales and declining returning customer. Many businesses owners were discouraged, and their enterprises died off!
This was no surprise, since many businesses didn’t speak the language of digital marketing. Words likeDisplay,Customer Segmentation, Content, SEO and SEM weren’t common terms among local, small businessesand even online base companies.Therefore,SDM took strides to help close knowledge gap. Before the birth of SocialDentity Digital Marketing, Val embarked on a free service journey, helping businesses to grow.This led to the passion and desire to start this marketing agency as she knew the needs of the community and the pain points businesses were facing. And this motivated her to update her knowledge and skillset to meet the growing needs of local enterprises in need of help with both traditional and digital marketing. S.D.M conducts research that aims to help all businesses enhance their business by providing them with the select services, softwareor products that best suited to their needs.This is what sets S.D.M apart from many of the other agencies that currently exist. There are many digital marketing strategies, software, paid search ads and self-service tools available in today’s market. Which unfortunately leads to businesses being offered an array of products that aren’t beneficial to their success but S.D.M seeks to connects its clients with what will best help them meet their goal.
