Farida Design Group is unique from other marketing agencies in that it has never spent a dollar on self-marketing. The CEO, Bryan Farida, applies his extensive background with social media to increase the company’s publicity. He manages to connect with many clients without ever having to pay for an advertisement or message them directly. He upholds that the goal when marketing is not to convince your target audience of anything, but rather to show them how you are going to improve their lives and help them achieve their goals. To do this, Farida Design Group praises that you must build trust, as an agency is only as good as its previous clients’ experiences. That’s what separates Farida Design Group from its competition—the experience it provides its clients, ensuring they are 110% satisfied before they ever pay a penny. To ensure this is true even after they pay, Farida Design Group offersfree additional revisions for any project. In the coming years, they plan on expanding into software engineering to create novel tech-driven marketing solutions.
