Full Service Digital Marketing Agency Opens Office in Irvine, California at Spectrum Center
Our digital marketing agency opened a new office in Irvine, California in November as part of our expansion plan. Valerie Jennings, CEO of JSMM+VBM, and Haley Paszkiewicz, digital marketer, were the first to make the trip to meet with new vendors and companies and attend events.
Currently the office is in a “soft launch” stage. Employees from the Kansas City metro location will rotate and staff the Irvine office monthly. Valerie said, “We are thrilled to be able to offer our employees more global experiences in the business community and expand our agency’s network to the West Coast. Thanks to a hard-working team of talented digital marketers and exceptional clients, we are blessed to be able to open a second location.”
The agency’s leadership team chose Irvine, California as the location of the new office for a variety of reasons, but mainly to help secure additional opportunities on the West Coast. Valerie said, “Many of our clients do business in California, so this expansion supports their business opportunities as well as the agency’s future. Our culture supports an investment in our employees’ education and professional development.”
The office location at Spectrum Center has a relaxed “SoCal” vibe with beer on tap, a strong sense of community and events. The office has an environment that fosters creativity and collaboration with a coworking space with businesses of all sizes, from large corporations to self-employed. The building is owned by WeWork, which operates co-working facilitates across the globe in 58 major cities and a professional network of 180,000 members, a number that’s expected to double in the next 12 months.
There are many booming industries in Southern California, including the technology industry. In fact, L.A.-O.C. produced 33,080 new technology jobs between 2011 and 2016. The agency is certainly excited to benefit from new ideas, opportunities, relationships and experiences. It’s also important for small businesses to be close to big markets like Silicon Valley and Los Angeles. Another big boost for small business is that California’s economic recovery has largely outpaced that of many other states, according to Business News Daily.
