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.
Our Team Today
Now, Whiteboard Marketing continues to flourish as one of Columbus’ top marketing firms. With its unmatched level of personalized service, Whiteboard Marketing continues to fulfill the original mission of providing comprehensive marketing solutions to businesses. Continuing to grow, the Whiteboard Marketing team now includes account executives, social media specialists, an online reputation manager, web developer, graphic designer, and more. The Whiteboard Marketing team loves what they do and find it so motivating to find new, innovative ways to help clients move businesses forward.
Whether you need a single service, like web design, or a full marketing plan, let the Whiteboard team help you to reach your goals while creating new ones for the future. We believe in marketing made simple.
