Gamelan’s founder, Matthew White, has seen your needs firsthand. For example, he helped build a tech startup with limited resources into a consistently profitable company with a global customer base, then worked with an exit partner for a successful sale and transfer of the business and its operations.
That’s where it started.
A Marketing Agency Born From Startup Experience
It was during that first real startup experience that the idea for Gamelan as a marketing agency was born from over 15 years’ experience in having to wear different hats, and get things done . . . efficiently. In many cases when business problems would arise, there were never adequate outside resources to help – they were either cost prohibitive or overkill for specific and targeted needs.
Marketing was particularly difficult – affordable marketing consultants who understood the importance of digital marketing for the long term were few and far between.
And Not Just an Internet Marketing Agency
In most cases, when businesses don’t have access to the right resources, they attempt to take matters in their own hands – only to create other larger and lingering problems. And, don’t forget about opportunity cost – what it ends up costing you to be doing something other than what you do best. Finding help is difficult enough. Finding employees or new team members is even tougher.
The reason this is particularly difficult in marketing specifically is that so many of the necessary skills overlap. For example, it isn’t just an internet marketing agency you need – you may need web design services, but first you need to better understand what your brand strategy is. Then you might also need creative, graphic design services.
This is where Gamelan LLC can help: Tactically or as a marketing agency taking a broader look at your business marketing strategies, we’ll identify and get to work on the problem. And, if we can’t help, we’ll be honest and tell you that.
Gamelan? What Is It? How Do You Pronounce It?
“Gamelan?” . . . we’re glad you asked.
A gamelan (pronounced GAM-uh-LAN) refers to a unique variety of instruments that comprise a musical ensemble – usually of Indonesian origin. Interestingly, no two gamelan ensembles are the same. Many of the same elements may be present, but each is unique.
In our modern economy, business owners and employees are required to bring a variety of talents to the table. Small businesses and startups usually require that people wear “a lot of different hats” until dedicated resources can handle specific tasks or challenges.
A great deal of knowledge, talent, and creative problem solving skill is necessary today for businesses to remain competitive. Quick decision making is a must to properly leverage advances in technology. Smaller businesses are often more agile than larger ones, but having fewer people means they have to bring a variety of unique talents and tools.
The understanding that each business operates as a unique ensemble of talents and challenges is a strength at Gamelan LLC. Providing an outside perspective, wearing some different hats, and helping businesses of all sizes operate more efficiently are our goals.
