50 Most Admired Companies of the Year 2016
The Silicon Review
“A leading web developer recognized by multiple local and national publications and recipients of many design and marketing awards.”
In the United States alone, there are nearly 280 million Internet users. With that number increasing every day, it’s plain to see that the Internet is the fastest growing communications media in the history of the commercial world. With such a huge audience out there, the Internet has become the new place to do business. Print ads, brochures and catalogues can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars to design, print and distribute.
Creating these marketing materials for the Internet is much cheaper, and allows businesses to reach a larger, more diverse audience. Adventure Web Interactive offers comprehensive web marketing programs and reasonable maintenance programs to help businesses do just that.
Adventure Web is one of the Maryland’s oldest and largest award winning web design and Internet marketing firms. While it may have started out as a small operation, selling 6-page websites out of a spare bedroom for $25 per month back in 1997, it has progressed over the years to become a company with e-commerce systems, SEO & social media marketing campaigns, and more recently, mobile apps of all shapes and sizes.
Adventure Web’s major offerings include high quality web designs, e-commerce systems, mobile applications and an assortment of SEO & social media marking strategies. This positioning of services makes AWI one of the most complete Internet solutions providers in the market today.
AWI’s full in-house staff gives clients the ability to actually sit down and work directly with the people who are developing their systems, designing their sites and deploying their marketing campaigns.
Always Delivering Solid Results
Adventure Web Interactive strongly believes in using in-depth industry research and data to present clients with programs that work specifically for them. Through the use of web analytic tools, AWI is able to show potential clients the real results that their systems and marketing programs have delivered to previous and existing clients. These types of presentations have a profound impact on gaining a customer’s confidence. AWI is more than just a web design company; it is a web results firm.
An Eclectic Mix of Clients
With 19 years of experience, AWI has developed one of the most impressive and diverse client bases, consisting of over 1800 customers from every industry.
The client spectrum ranges from small local businesses to Fortune 500 clients, such as Sony, GE, Constellation energy, SAIC, Johns Hopkins Medicine and Johnson Controls. AWI proudly claims that “Everyone in the metro area has most likely been on or used something we have built.”
Adventure Web’s clients are spread throughout the world, but the majority are local to the Maryland / DC / Northern VA area. AWI’s products are currently focused on small to midsized firms, but its further engagement into mobile app development and social media marketing has resulted in larger and more sophisticated web applications.
Knowledge Derived From Experience
The main competitive advantages AWI possesses are its experience and great personnel. Like everything in this world, the longer you do it the better you get at it. With 19 years under its belt, the staff at AWI has pretty much seen and done it all. AWI’s growth and stupendous skill set is no surprise. The experienced team at AWI has delivered outstanding results time and time again, due to their diligence and time spent in the industry – the advent of the web design/marketing industry and the birth of the firm are not far apart. AWI has seen what works and what does not; it has seen many competitors overextend themselves and watched smaller, fly-by-night operations come and go. The team has seen a dramatic change in technology and has always been on the forefront when it takes place. AWI nevertries to overextend but is always ahead with controlled and accelerated growth.
