“It’s getting more & more difficult to find people with Honor & Integrity”

Having served my country as a two time combat veteran, a lieutenant in the police department and most importantly a husband and a father, having Honor & Integrity is extremely important to me. I will be the first to tell you that it is extremely difficult in the world of business and entrepreneurship. I have tried and failed many times in business. I’ve maxed out credit cards, received personal loans & dipped into savings just to fail over and over again at my first few business ventures. I hate to use the word fail, being that I learned tremendous lessons which helped me finally grow and sustain the successful business I have today. With that said, I understand more than most what it is like to spend your hard earned money on services you need to grow or sustain your business. Therefore, I take marketing & business consulting very seriously. I was once the guy paying over 4k for a website I had no business paying over 1k for. I was once the guy paying agencies thousands of dollars for services I could have easily paid a few hundred dollars for. Even worse, I had no business even paying for some of these services while I was so early in development. These businesses I had dealings with in the past had no Honor or Integrity. They just take, take, take. They love it when you’re sitting there uninformed, bright eyed and bushy tailed. I was that guy. With a family at home to raise atop of that. I make it my business to not only give our clients great service, but to make sure their hard earned money is being spent wisely and not wasted. If you read this, thank you very much for reading and reviewing the content on my site. Work hard, don’t give up, be smart, be consistent, don’t be afraid to adjust when necessary and don’t let your struggle and success compromise your HONOR & INTEGRITY. Thank you again!

What Our Clients Say

Real Testimonies From Current Clients!

Years ago I was with a marketing agency who I thought was getting the job done. Once I learned that services were not being completed properly, they tried to trap me into a contract. I found Darren McDuffie on LinkedIn ;needless to say, I am not in that contract any longer. I've been with his company ever since.

If anyone knows Darren, you know that he talks a mile a minute. As a result, I learned so many things about my company. He is very passionate in what he does and makes it very easy for my family business. It's difficult to sell maple syrup online without selling on a 3rd party site. However, after me and Darren rebranded and made some major adjustments online, I now receive an online order for my maple products almost every day. It's been over two years working with his company & I wouldn’t have it any other way.

CEO of Ulinger Maple Farms & Retired Sheriff
It was several years ago when I was at an awards banquet and my buddy told me about a guy who does websites and writes pretty good articles. We had a few drinks, talked and exchanged information. After a few meetings, I signed up for his web design package. Im not going to lie, I didn’t think he knew what the heck he was doing. He had me at a coffee shop setting up my domain, getting access to my social media etc for about 2 hours at least. Consequently, I would like to say that we are now pretty good friends. We were in a conversation one day talking business as we normally do. He said, "Darmel do you remember when I had you sitting in the coffee shop years ago setting up your stuff?" I said yea, you had me in there forever lol. He then said, "man I didn’t know what the hell I was doing. You were my first client lol". I saw Darren go from years of working in a coffee shop, to an office on the 14th floor downtown.
Darmel Whitfield
CEO of Whitfield Financial
This young man was a customer of my restaurant for years and I had no idea he owned a marketing agency. Fortunately, he overheard a conversation I was having with a relative of mine. I won a law suit with a very well known and terrible marketing agency. However, after winning the lawsuit, this company was trying to steal my facebook business page. They were giving me the run around and not providing me access. Long story short, I told Mr. Mcduffie that if he can get my Facebook page back from this company, I will sign up to his services right away. About a week later he set up a meeting. He had my domain name and my social media in order. I don't recommend anyone else. He's the only one I will allow to touch my businesses.
Rodney Wilkinson
Owner of The Fire Spot Restaurant & Lieutenant In the Buffalo Fire Dept.
As a full time school teacher, I wanted to finally work for myself. I finally received my certification and was ready to start my first business and I tell you I could not imagine learning and doing all of this alone. When we first started the project, I would get our project management notifications out of nowhere. One day: website complete. The next week, facebook page fully set up. Week after that, scheduling system set up. Things just kept getting done. To top it all off, I would receive tutorials and video updates to limit the back and fourth! It was crazy how organized & fast everything was being done all at the same time. When we started Darren would say, "don't worry, unlike most you're going to be coming out of the gate swinging". He was right. Most people who have start ups spend years doing what darren did in a few months. I was very fortunate. We are still trucking along. Much to do!
Michelle Zimmerman
CEO of Celestial Therapeutic & School Teacher
It has been great working with this company. I don't understand any of this tech stuff. I check my email and that's about it. Mr. Mcduffie makes it very easy for me. I am located in Hawaii and was worried that the time difference will get in the way of customer service. Mr. Mcduffie always reminds me that his company is not a 9-5 and if he misses the call or message, he will get right back to me and that he does. Even though it was a bit unusual at first, I do enjoy that I can contact his company at anytime and normally receive a fast response. We had to make a few adjustments to increase online sales. It's been almost two years and so far so good.

In short, before owning my own marketing agency, I was one of the unfortunate victims of these terrible web design companies & marketing agencies. A vast majority of these companies lie, steal & lock their clients into binding contracts making it difficult for them to leave. Everything from compromising a businesses Facebook page, to charging fees to sell the domain back to the actual owner. I’ve seen it all. A fair percentage of my clients are people iv’e helped to escape from these terrible companies and people posing as if they have a company when in reality they are freelancers. Owners are literally entrusting us with their livelihood. Therefore, as a result of all of these sleazy & unexperienced marketing agencies, we are building a brand of honesty and integrity. We also “listen” to what potential clients need and do not try to coerce them into packages not suitable or necessary for their business. In the “about the owner” section, you’ll receive a full description of my story regarding my company. I look forward to setting up a meeting with you. Thank you 😊 

Yes! Our services are affordable. However, as previously stated, before owning a marketing agency I was the one paying thousands of dollars for a company I didn’t even launch yet. As a result of my terrible experience and dealing with many different types of clients, I was sure to create a very unique pricing structure. We have pricing for small businesses and/or businesses we consider low competition. We have pricing for med to large size businesses and/or businesses with high level competition. We also have custom pricing for large franchises & international businesses. With that said, what do we mean by low and high competition? A local hair salon or pizza shop located in a small to med size city will be considered a small business and/or a business with low competition. An accident injury firm, a disaster restoration company and a dentist office located in a med to large city will be considered businesses with high competition. For example, if you live in a med to large size city, you will most likely see billboards, hear commercials on radio, tv & see ads everywhere for multiple accident injury firms. As a result of the cost of ads and your competitors, this type of industry needs a high marketing budget. Even so, you will have marketing agencies that will lie and allow these type of competitive brands to pay a low budget just to close a deal, knowing that they will not be seen no matter your level of skill (when the company learns that the marketing is not effective and tries to leave, that is where the binding contracts come in). If the majority of disaster  restoration companies have an ad spend of 10k – 50k, and your client is paying $900, your client will simply not be seen and/or be flushed out by multiple competitors paying 1000x as much. On the flip side, a local family restaurant who needs marketing services has no business paying 5k per month for a marketing budget. I know of local companies who are currently paying over 1k per month for agencies to post generic photos and videos to their Facebook Business page. They actually think they are getting a deal. It’s a rip off. We are honest about our pricing and level of service. 

Absolutely! That is why we are here. We make it very simple and do our best to educate and explain what is going on with your marketing. A vast majority of our clients utilize our Basecamp project management system. All conversations, information, photos videos etc… are in one organized place. Also, clients are able to see whats needed in their project in real time. We are certainly here to help. Our clients continue running their business while we take care of the rest. 

Yes we do. We have an extremely competitive web design kit. Unlike your normal web designer, as a marketing agency we build our sites based on users actions. Clean, modern, user friendly & to the point. We do not fill your site with unnecessary content that will just confuse users and slow your site. I look forward to speaking further. 

Depending on the specific situation, yes we can. We have a very high success rate in helping companies escape the grasp of these sleazy agencies attempting to trap you binding contracts. You’ll be surprised how many of these so called companies are actually freelancers working out of their homes. Once they experience a real marketing agency, they normally give and and back off. Along with releasing the clients Facebook page and domain they tried to compromise. 

Yes we do. As a digital agency, we conduct business in the United States & Outside of the United states. Schedule your free consultation today. Thank you
