We had the good fortune of connecting with Christopher Amos and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Christopher, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
As a new small business owner, I have found maintaining a work life balance to be unbelievably different from the corporate world. The reality of owning your own business means that you are responsible for all aspects of the business, from customer service to order fulfillment and everything in-between. Once we made the decision to open up our business, the transition itself was relatively simple, however in hindsight, we should have done a better job of process mapping and really understanding all the moving parts and regulatory requirements. With that said, we wouldn’t change our decision to go out on our own in the slightest. There are long days, tons of stressful moments but the level of service that we are able to provide to clients and the satisfaction knowing you are doing right by those who trust you is extremely rewarding! We love what we do and enjoy coming into the office each and every day!
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
As a full-service marketing agency, we are unique in the sense that we truly focus on the strategy, results, and transparency. We offer a full suite of marketing and advertising solutions that include services like Search Engine Optimization, Website Development, PR, Social Media Management, Pay-Per-Click, and so much more! Our key to success is our commitment to education. We strive to complete 4-8 hours per month of continuing education so that we can stay abreast of changes in technology, society, and trends. We got to where we are today as a result of hard work and persistence. Twelve-to-fourteen-hour days, networking, consistency, and good ‘ole fashion customer service has really been our recipe for success. While some back away from challenges, we address them head on. Understanding these challenges and improving the business to mitigate issues in the future has helped us create amazing customer relationships and loyalty amongst our customers. The last thing that I would like to mention is a concept that we champion which is humanizing our brand. We don’t want customers to think about us as some money hungry business. We want them to consider us family. It opens up the lines of communication, trust, and so much more. We align our business with local charities with quarterly give-back programs and do our best to get out there and recognize leaders with small rewards and recognition.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If we had a friend coming into town, we are firm believers in the healing powers of the outdoors! Nature has so much to offer so we would likely select a remote location that offers a chance to disconnect from technology and relax. Some of our favorite locations include the Mogollon Rim, White Mountains, Southern Arizona, Southern Utah, and the Oregon coast!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
We attribute much of our success to organizations like the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce, Glendale Chamber of Commerce, Peoria Chamber of Commerce, and amazing clients like Snyder & Wenner Attorneys, 11 Bravo Mobile Auto Reconditioning, Trinity Chiropractic, First Responder Decon, and NWN IT Solutions!
