Going on 20 Years...
944 Media first opened its doors in 1995 in Tempe AZ at 944 Mill Ave across the street from ASU in the heart of downtown Tempe. Founder Mark Gorzen attended ASU's BFA program the School of Intermedia where fine art was mixed with the then fledgling digital and internet evolution. Mark studied under the program created by John Ridgway who pioneered the motion graphics you see today on most major news and entertainment networks. Mark and John later collaborated on Destination TV, as seen on ABC Television.
For years Mark Gorzen and his company was rated the #1 Web Design Firm by the prestigious Business Journal Book of Lists. Mark Gorzen went on to create the nationally popular 944 Magazine covering entertainment, celebrities, nightlife, fashion and luxury lifestyles. Mark went onto create a TV version of the magazine called Destination TV which aired on ABC, covering fun and entertaining events from the Grammys to the Playboy Mansion and the hottest travel destinations.

You need to think about your online business as if you would any "real" business here on earth. Too many people think of their website as a secondary concern or even way down the list. Your website can easily make more money than any actual business location. These days the internet is surpassing any printed advertising or other business leads generation. More importantly more people now look for you business on their phones more than any other way which allows you to conduct transactions as soon as you are found... if you are setup to do so.
Unlike a brick-and-mortar business, your online business can run on a fraction of the overhead; you just need to treat it like a real business. Dedicated one person, who has all the skills you need, to your website and it will flourish. Easier said than done? Yes, it's hard to find someone that can do design, programming, marketing, video, ecommerce... everything you need... for an affordable price.
YOU CAN, WITH 944!
Ask yourself, how much would an employee cost who has the programming ability to build your website, design it to look really cool, then design all your other graphics so it matches your brand, then can edit cool videos that make your site and social media stand out, go onto marketing your site, set it up to take orders and even give you 20 years of advice on strategies for you business?
If you're going to run your website like a real business you need at least one employee.... right? You need to do these things every month.... you can't just build it and expect people to come, it doesn't work like that. Real businesses have more than one employee, but because 944 only takes on a few clients you will get everything you need in one affordable price.
