Champ Internet Solutions (www.champinternet.com), a full-service marketing agency specializing in web design and development, digital marketing and brand strategy, is celebrating its five-year anniversary this spring. The company officially opened its doors on May 25, 2009.
Over the last five years, Champ has delivered performance-based web solutions that drive traffic, enhance conversion and accelerate its clients’ online business goals. Since its inception, the company has focused on delivering solutions that “start with the end in mind.”
“During a time where the national economy has been slow to grow and many web development companies have struggled or even closed their doors, we have seen significant business growth,” said Seth Worby, CEO and founder of Champ Internet Solutions. “At Champ, our main goal in growing our business is directly related to making our clients’ businesses thrive online. Whether it is developing a brand new website for an e-commerce business, consulting on an SEO strategy or creating a stellar branding campaign, our team thoroughly enjoys what it does and we dive in and get it done.”
The Champ story began as a school project when Worby was a senior at Champlain College, with the famous Champlain Lake Monster providing inspiration for the name Champ Internet Solutions. The seniors were tasked to generate a business idea that incorporated all the skills they mastered throughout their major and that could benefit local tradesman. Worby developed an agency business model that could design and develop small-scale websites specifically to give online visibility to small business owners. The idea continued to flourish for years after graduation and Worby officially founded Champ in 2009 along with his business partner, his father, Donn. Donn brought decades of start-up business and financial expertise to Champ. After the LLC was officially formed, Champ’s client base and service offerings began to grow.
The company started in a small office space in Newton with two subsequent moves (also in Newton) to accommodate more employees as the company grew. Champ’s team has expanded dramatically over the past five years. In addition, as part of its business model, Champ has built partnerships with nine leading technology companies and expert vendors to round out its service offerings for its clients.
