Sioux Falls, South Dakota November 15, 2013
After almost a decade of focusing solely on website development and support, Gage e-Services has merged with local advertising agency, The A Team. Together the new entity will be known as The Gage Team. Matt Gage of Gage e-Services and Brooke Christensen of The A Team will be co-owners of The Gage Team with Fred Gage serving as CEO. The Gage Team employs 10 individuals. Gage e Services also acquired Dakota Web Composers based in Webster SD, and Madock ND last march.
The agency’s business model is unique in that the focus will continue to be on website development and hosting while offering full service advertising and marketing services. According to co-owner Matt Gage, “Today, an essential, if not a crucial element, to any successful marketing strategy is the implementation and ongoing development of a website and online marketing.”
The Gage Team believes that in taking a slightly different approach, clients will benefit from establishing or revamping their websites and then focusing on the more traditional marketing elements. With a website and sound online marketing strategies, companies can better define their products and services. The Gage Team is also one of the leading developers of web based tools that supplement traditional business needs and practices. “We are proud to have the best technology in website design as the basis to our marketing strategies and look forward to serving all of our customers' advertising needs.” says Christensen.
The Gage Team is based out of the former Gage e-Services offices at 601 S. Phillips Avenue in downtown Sioux Falls. The merger has been officially launched with a new logo, new branding statement: Web first, marketing always. And the company recently launched a new website: thegageteam.com.
