On the Interwebs
It was 1995 while Harley was attending university that he first got regular access to the Internet and started using his credit card to purchase stuff on the web. It was probably a bad idea at the time, but the purchases went smooth and he never looked back. By 1998 Harley had earned a Marketing degree and was designing his first website for an exporter of certified organics and doing manual internet marketing. The website turned out to be the biggest generator of leads for the company.
The “dot com” boom was next, so in 2000 Harley joined iTracks, a web-based software company offering online market research tools and website usability services for clients around the world. Within three years he became Vice-President of Sales and was managing an international team of account executives.
In 2007 Harley joined zu communications, a web development agency, to spearhead the creation of their accounts and marketing department. During this time he secured some of the firms largest clients including CN Rail, Rogers, and Tim Hortons. At the same time he helped double the size of the department and launch their foray into mobile websites and applications.
After twelve years of being an employee Harley decided it was time to become his own boss. In January 2010 Deep Dish Digital was founded with a focus on equipping private and public organizations with the tools and training to effectively market themselves online.
