Why We Started A Digital Marketing Agency

It all started back in 2007-2008 with an online business plan. In order to get started, we needed a Digital Marketing Agency to help us with that project. 

Now just like you, we called a couple of Local Digital Marketing Companies.

We soon realized there were two types of Digital Marketing Agencies.

  1. Professional Digital Marketing Agencies who charged tens of thousands for a project.
  2. Very small companies with little to no Digital Marketing background that charged a few hundred for a project.

Saqib Irfan

Digital Marketing Consultant & Owner of Website Department

“Hi, my name is Saqib Irfan. I’ve been designing websites for small businesses for 9 years now but the first four years were a nightmare!”

My clients were being held ransom by low quality service, high ongoing rates, and broken platforms. 

In 2012 I decided to change all that. I was done with the high rates and wanted to blaze the trail for small business owners who (like myself) could not afford $10,000 or more on a website.

I have successfully challenged the industry after all these years. Although I am still on a mission, I am in a better place.

Long story short, I have introduced a better way for Canadian Small businesses, to afford websites that are easy to manage, and run by launching: WebsiteDepartment.ca

My trusted web tech and I have developed a website building platform that’s  remarkably affordable and profitable for you.

Mark Gill

Digital Marketing Consultant & Owner of Website Department

“Hi, my name is Mark Gill. I’ve been in the Graphic Design industry for 6 years now and have designed well over a thousand different websites and logos.”

I am passionate about helping you succeed! Every client is unique and deserves a unique service. My philosophy is to put my clients first, to understand their situation and provide a first class service tailored to their specific needs.

Saqib and I met 3 years ago while he was working for AutoTrader and I was working for a local car dealership. I found Saqib to be a very interesting fellow and we hit it off! We would chat about business and how we could help companies succeed with digital marketing at a more affordable price.

As of January.10th/2018 Saqib and I became partners in business here at Website Department. I now help Saqib with managing the operations of everyday business. This means managing all channels including SEO, SEM, social media marketing, email marketing, display advertising and display re-targeting.

I am a bit of a data nerd and love analyzing web analytics data and interpreting reports for the rest of the business. 

Because we establish a one-to-one relationship with each client we are able to offer timely, individual advice on how to improve your website and marketing goals.
