Owning my own business has been a dream of mine for a long, long time, but it was only after my seven-year run at Element 74 that I decided to venture out on my own. When Element 74 sold to Red Letter in January of 2020, I knew it was time for a new chapter.
In 2010, I earned a degree in graphic design with an emphasis on photography and video production. After graduation, I spent many years in video production, first at Creative Edge in Cape Girardeau and then as a freelancer.
From there, I worked at Element 74 in Cape Girardeau. I started as an entry-level project manager and exited the company 7 years later as the Chief Operations Officer. After a merger with a larger marketing agency, I was offered a sales role, but I had a burning desire to do something bigger.
But first, I decided to go back to Creative Edge, the place my career began almost 10 years prior. I started as the Vice President of Strategic Development, but then the COVID Pandemic struck the nation and my role rapidly changed.
I quickly realized that the only way to do what I loved every day was to start my own business, so that’s what I did. I finally worked up the courage to quit my job and pursue my passion as a website developer.
B&B Media was born and was named for both my parents’ surnames, Bollinger and Beard.
As I started B&B, I had three goals in mind for the business, and they became my founding mission.
My Mission and Promise to You
- To provide exceptional quality websites with thoughtful and strategic development.
- To be a good steward of my clients’ budgets—I will not recommend features, strategies, or services that do not promote or advance your goals.
- To build long-lasting, meaningful partnerships. As a sole-proprietor, I embrace our combined success, because when you succeed, we both succeed.
At the moment, B&B Media is comprised of myself and a carefully-selected group of freelancers that assist me (when needed) in the areas of ADA conformant testing, custom development, graphic design, writing, and content layout. However, you can rest assured that I still do a vast majority of the work.
I’m in this for the long haul and I bring my A-Game every, single day.
I work with all of my clients on a one-on-one basis and it’s my goal to provide exceptional services and incredible support.
I have over ten years of experience in the field and a passion to help businesses thrive in this ever-changing environment that we call the internet.
Whether you’re looking for a partner to help with small, ongoing updates and changes to your website, or you’re looking for a partner to help you with a top-to-bottom rebuild, I’m your guy.
I have a great deal of experience with website design and development, search engine optimization, graphic design, ADA conformance, and more. If you would like to learn more or discuss your project, please reach out to me below or at 573-200-6578.
I’d be happy to take your call, discuss your goals over coffee, or meet with you and your team.
I’m excited to begin this journey and I can’t wait to hear your story.
Until then, I wish you all the best,
President and CEO
