Janko works with clients from different industries who all have a few things in common:
- Their budgets are limited and they cannot afford (or find) an experienced full-time marketing team.
- They are forced to handle marketing themselves, wasting precious time on learning to manage their website, design flyers, understand SEO, or social media marketing.
- They want less talk and more action. Tangible results reflected in their bottom line.
- They favour responsiveness and fast turnaround times.
- a chef can finally focus on cooking instead of building websites,
- a yoga instructor can spend more time teaching yoga, instead of designing brochures
- a furniture manufacturer gets to sell furniture instead of learning about AdWords and Analytics.
