Who We Are
Superior Results & Meaningful Relationships are Our Standard
Markatects is a small agency with big personality. We don't sell an idea, we sell results!
Based in Calgary, AB Canada - Founder Catherine Cortez has more than 12 years experience in the industry. Over the years she has helped 100s of businesses across the world reach phenomenal success through online marketing, but there was a problem...
Working for agencies meant following their rules, and the norm in online marketing agencies is measuring success through clicks & visitors, outsourcing work to low quality service providers/contractors to increase profit margins for the agency, abandoning the client once a contract is signed, and putting little effort to innovate and take clients past their limits.
Catherine believed things had to change so she went independent and built what is now known as Markatects (formaly SMBwired) to break these agency norms, and together with an amazing team, challenge the market with innovative ideas & strategies - becoming not just another outsource, but a strategic partner!
Digital marketing is the backbone of every successful business. Unfortunately, for many companies, it is also the Achilles heel of the marketing mix. Markatects is founded on an incredibly simple philosophy. The best digital marketing efforts are grounded in superior results and grow through meaningful relationships. We believe that superior digital marketing is created through business oriented strategies, provocative messaging, precise targeting, & repetition. Digital marketing success is maintained with a meaningful relationship that adheres to all of our partner’s needs at all times. Transparency, results, & passion are basic foundations for relationships with our partners, but we go much further to obtain long term success. We are preachers of empathy & understanding that go out of our way to make sure our business partners are happy. This is why Markatects is a superior digital marketing solution that creates long term success.
