It all started in July of 1999. Back then our young company consisted of Marilyn, the founder, working from home making “pretty little websites” with her dogs. The internet was still young, and most people were just getting online with their personal computers. Smart Phones weren’t even out yet! But with a vision and a lot of ambition, Ambitious Web took off and grew even when other dot com companies were failing. Why? Not only did we have ambition, but we had knowledge and filled a need. Answering our clients questions.
Now the questions were very different then. We answered a lot of basic questions that pertained more to computers, and the oh so confusing emails and Outlook. In fact, most of our questions that we answered were about how to operate computers, emails, printers. You could say we were the “personal search engine” of Tulsa, long before Google became popular. We spent many hours teaching our clients how to email, attach files to an email, set up their printers, and of course how the internet and their websites worked. Today, those questions are rare, but we still assist with new phone settings (boy do they change often) and other technical issues that our clients have with the rapid pace of today’s technology.
Today, we still educate our clients, but it’s quite different. Marilyn is still amazed at how many new clients the company gets that still don’t understand websites; how the website and SEO actually works, and what to do to make it profitable. But she soon gets to work making sure that clients know not only what we are doing for the website and SEO, but why we do it. We consider ourselves “team members” when it comes to clients. We are here to help them grow their business. And as most things in life, we believe that knowledge is key. The more they work with us and understand, the higher the rewards of our work. We still proudly provide personal one on one training for our clients and strive to be the best tech company in Tulsa when it comes to performance and customer service. We look forward to seeing where we go in the next 21 years. The future looks bright and we are proud to be one of the longest running web design company in Tulsa!
