About Ethical Digital
Ethical Digital was conceived out of frustration with the way digital marketing specialists are often forced to do things we know won't work. We all want the ability to exercise some integrity and say "no, that's a bad idea, I will not sabotage this account." So founding principle number 1 is that every Ethical Digital Agent is their own boss, responsible for their own reputation.
Founding principle number 2 is radical decentralization. The problem with big agencies is that the decision-making is done by managers at the top while the expertise is at the bottom with the specialists who know the products inside and out. At the other end of the spectrum, the problem with small agencies and freelancers is that they lack the division of labor to do their jobs effectively.
Our solution to both problems is a decentralized business model where the specialists have a direct stake in the client's long-term success while Ethical Digital provides the administrative support they need to help the client. There's no upper-management pushing useless products and meaningless metrics. With everyone's incentives aligned and decisions in the hands of the experts, we are an innovation machine.
If you're tired of being ripped off and want a first-rate marketing team that will be accountable for their work, register here and we'll set you up with a marketing strategist to discuss your needs.
If you are a digital marketing professional looking to spread your wings and have a larger stake in your own success, maybe you should become an Ethical Digital Agent.
