We Make Your Marketing Excel Online
A wise person once said the greatest risk is not taking one at all. This has been the guiding principle of Deep Dish Digital since it was founded in 2010 during the great recession. At a time when organizations wanted to pull back we saw an opportunity to push forward by focussing marketing efforts online.
Harley graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1998 at the height of the “dot com” boom. His first job was with an exporter of specialty crops whom he convinced needed a website. Thankfully, the website became the primary source of inquiries for the company and Harley devoted himself to the emerging world of online marketing.
In 2000 Harley joined iTracks, a web-based software start-up offering online market research tools and data collection for clients around the world. Within three years he became Vice-President of Sales and was managing an international team of account executives.
After seven years at iTracks Harley joined ZU, a web development agency, to lead the growth of their accounts and marketing department. During this time he secured some of the firms largest clients including CN Rail, Rogers, and Tim Hortons. ZU grew to become Saskatchewan’s largest web agency and now attracts international clients.
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.
