thesiliconreview-paul-j-scott-founder-ceo-goingclear-interactive-2017Understanding your internet needs and developing a web strategy that produces results is our goal. 

Web design is one of the most important aspects of your online presence. This doesn’t necessarily mean you need to pay exorbitant amount of money on it, but rather that you need to find a style of web design that works for your business. It takes a lot of creativity, uniqueness and brainstorming sessions to come up with a nice web design. Designers have to create engaging websites, apps, and services that work seamlessly across all devices and work for a global audience. That audience too is more tech savvy, have higher expectations and are more design literate than ever before and expect near perfection. Web designs which are liked and appreciated by target market and clients are mostly the result of constant development and regressive critical thinking. 

GoingClear Interactive, a leading Boston based digital agency, was founded in 2001 on the principle of being the clearest way to the web for companies that wanted to maximize their digital presence through web design and development. Now, years later –they have preserved that mission but only with sharper and more innovative digital strategies and services.

Sublime tête-à-tête with Paul J. Scott, Founder and CEO

What inspired you to set up the company?

From my childhood years, I would hear stories about my great grandfather’s company and how he started from nothing and grew into a large successful construction company developing physical properties all over New England. Then as I finished up college and started GoingClear Interactive, I had one goal in my mind; developing successful digital properties (websites) all over New England and then the world. Having a knack for listening, finding the optimized path, and executing on those paths lent itself to working in this digital services industry.

Discuss about your first project.

My first project was interesting to say the least. It was for a small Italian restaurant and the client wanted the world for his new website from a fancy flash intro to a fully interactive website. It was great timing for me as I wanted to create a show piece that could win other future projects as well. It came out amazing and even to this day, when we share that link from one of our old servers, since it is not live anymore, the client always says it was the best website he has ever seen.

What are the obstructions you ran into in the early years?

Initially, we faced typical growing pains of navigating through, keeping projects commitments and pricing in sync and trying creative marketing strategies as well. One has to get clear on why you are doing what you do, reverse engineer into each supporting element to follow that mission day in and day out and then pivot when needed to always be growing effectively. 

What is your company’s vision statement and what is your approach toward it?

Our mission is to grow the brands of our clients through effective digital tactics from Strategy and Branding to Web Design, Development & Apps to Digital Marketing, Management and Optimization. We are successful in this through where we feel we are only as good as our latest project therefore having to apply this vision to each and every client and project we work on. 

How is your firm employee centric?

We are always open to listening and reacting to solid ideas from our employees that help move the company forward. Without different input by the team and their wins through different projects, then we would never grow – so we are always open to optimizing through feedback and using what works and disregarding things that don’t work.

Justify GoingClear Interactive’s consistence growth as an organization.

Passion for what we do. We all sincerely enjoy developing successful digital solutions for our clients and seeing them win.  From award-winning websites, to creative digital marketing strategies to more typical website management plans, we get excited about launching new projects. Without that, I think growth would be severely challenged. Will power only works so much and you need that underlying passion to bring you through the different growth phases.
