Our Specialty & Purpose
Our purpose is simple: we help local businesses get new customers, using effective online advertising & marketing.
#1 Quality & Results
We don't just focus on getting "clicks" to your website. Results are everything for us.
That's why we go the extra mile and spend hours planning and strategizing everything that we do for our clients - using advanced online advertising methods that not many local & small businesses use.
#2 Personable, Honest, & Straightforward Communication
We personally manage and oversee every single client campaign. As a result, you'll be talking to the same people every time, that know your business and your campaign inside and out.
We also strive to make ourselves highly available, so if you ever have any questions or want to chat, you can call or message us directly at any time.
Get To Know Us
Growing up in a family of nine, I was exposed to entrepreneurship and disciplined work ethic from a very young age. My parents had no choice but to use their creativity and ingenuity to start multiple small businesses to support the family. This led me to gain an empathetic understanding of the everyday struggles that small business owners face and is the reason I’ve focused my career on helping these very entrepreneurs.
With an interest in studying all things business, I completed my Bachelor of Commerce in marketing and entrepreneurship from Ryerson University. From there, I worked as an analyst at Canadian Tire’s corporate headquarters in downtown Toronto, while taking on freelance marketing work on the side. As I landed more freelance gigs, I quickly realized a common issue: there is wide gap in the level of sophistication in marketing that corporate brands get compared to small businesses that have a more limited budget. Recognizing this fact, I decided to sharpen my small business marketing skills by landing a role as a senior SEO analyst at a large Canadian marketing agency. This combined experience has allowed me to work with hundreds of clients across just about every business industry and niche, and has led to the development of world class hyper-local marketing strategies using PPC, SEO, Google Ads, and online advertising to the direct benefit of ABG’s clients.
When not developing strategies to help our clients succeed, I enjoy exercising, reading, and catching up/grabbing a drink with old friends.
Coming from a modest working-class background, I relate to having to constantly strive and work hard. I appreciate the efforts of small business owners and the unique challenges and responsibilities that they face. This is at the core of my drive and vision to use my abilities to help small businesses.
I began my career after completing a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Toronto, and a postgraduate certification in Advertising at The Pilon School of Business at Sheridan College. I started in advertising & marketing at Mediacom, a top global advertising agency, developing advertising & marketing strategies and research insights for large global brands. In this role, I developed my ability to analyze complex data sets in order to extract insights to guide advertising & communications strategies.
I’m a driven learner and technically inclined – with an advanced knowledge of web development (HTML, CSS, JS), which greatly helped me excel in my past role as a SEO technician. Early on while working in the ad industry, I’d spent countless hours during my long train commutes home studying online advertising methods that are most effective & practical for small businesses. In between, I had also taken on several freelance roles to put all of the theory into practice. I have since successfully planned, managed, and executed dozens of SEO, website development, and online ad campaigns for small businesses – both in work and freelance roles as well as for ABG’s clients.
