Where It All Began
Sean White founded Whiteboard Marketing in 2005. At that time, Sean primarily worked to produce television spots for clients, eventually adding more marketing services, at their request. Over time, clients began entrusting Sean to make all marketing, advertising, communication, and business growth decisions. It was at this point he realized just how valuable an all-inclusive marketing plan is for small to medium-sized businesses. In response, he created Whiteboard Marketing as an off-site marketing department.
