The good times are never too sweet for DesignHub, and the bad times are never too sour. It turns out both things are a recipe for steady growth at the Saline based digital marketing agency.
DesignHub has averaged high single-digit gains each of the last several years. It's not hockey stick growth spikes, but its the type of momentum that keeps the company consistently headed in the right direction.
"We work really hard and grind out the hours, but this is where we seem to land," says Chris Kochmanski, partner at DesignHub. He adds that his company only took a small hit to its revenue during the Great Recession, which it quickly recovered from.
The five-person company offers a comprehensive set of services in digital marketing. It has expanded its offerings to meet its longtime customers demands for more work in new areas, like social media or mobile. One customer, Dynamic Computer Corp went from sporadic project work with DesignHub to outsourcing its entire marketing department to it.
"Now we have a contract with them to do more contract marketing," Kochmanski says.
DesignHub has grown its work with existing clients like Advanced Photonix, Berry & Associates, Center for Automotive Research, Corner Health Center, Daycroft Montessori School, Dexter Research, Dimensional Engineering, and the City of Saline. It has also added several new clients like doing an advertising campaign for Huron Valley Financial, fundraising appeals for Evangelical Homes of Michigan, and new sales support materials for VolunteerHub.
"We have a lot of prospective clients we are dealing with right now," Kochmanski says.
