Mysquad marketing management

Mysquad marketing management was started to assist entrepreneurs like myself from Micro and SME level companies to better position their businesses using digital marketing strategies and tactics. After looking at the failures I experienced and those of people I observed and knew personal, I realised we all lack the understanding of how to grow our businesses beyond our immediate community and circle of people we know. This problem is worldwide so I began to investigate why and how it could be solved. By studying digital marketing and having experience as an entrepreneur I was able to fill in the spaces and landed on a solution to combine all these digital marketing tactics and services into a comprehensive package for a fixed monthly fee as opposed to what is currently the standard of having to pay for one service at a time. Most companies I spoke to and researched were in need of all the digital services in order to compete seriously in the market. This led me down the path to where I find myself today, I am now a certified and qualified Digital marketer through UCT’s digital marketing course and have already begun work with my first few clients. As part of what we do we help businesses by:
