SS Digital Media (SSDM), an advertising and marketing agency, has been recognized as one of Michigan’s Economic Bright Spots by Corp! Magazine. The award will be presented at the magazine’s annual luncheon on Wednesday, June 8 at the International Banquet Center in Detroit.
For the last nine years, the award has celebrated companies that realize continual growth and expansion and hire Michigan’s brightest talent. Winners also will be featured in the July/August 2017 print issue of Corp! Magazine.
“We are very excited to be recognized for this award” said Nick Skislak, SSDM president and CEO. “When you’re in the marketing business, you typically get awards for creative success, but this celebrates our sustainability, which allows us to hire wonderful, talented people and to continue to grow.
“Over the years, our clients have come to realize our value to them as a strong partner for their marketing and advertising teams and we are grateful for that trust in our knowledge and expertise.”
SSDM is nearly 10 years old, founded in 2008 at the height of the economic downturn. But Skislak and one of his partners, Amanda Friedt saw a real need for search-engine optimization as the Internet was becoming more and more complex, with Google re-writing its algorithms every couple weeks.
“It was becoming readily apparent that online marketing success would require the help of experts with the ability to strategically navigate the web,” said Friedt. “At the same time, social marketing was emerging as an important factor and we realized we had found our niche.”
SSDM has 13 full-time employees and always has a couple interns on staff as well. The agency is one of only a handful of Google Partner companies in their area.
