New, not new

Marketing has seen a big evolution from as little as 20 years ago to today. With a treasure-trove of accessible data, marketing has morphed from CRM with “batch & blast” to seamless MarTech ecosystems... or so it appears from a high level! The REALITY underscores that many of the fundamentals remain the same:

  • Data Management

  • Message Creation/Compilation

  • Execution

  • Monitoring

 

Today’s difference is that marketers are trying to balance MORE:  

  • customers, that are more connected

  • types of messaging (email, apps/push, sms, ad-tech etc)

  • more data (all the clickstream and digital data)

  • pieces of technology & MarTech platforms

Tekside can help you simplify. We are an extra set of hands (and brains) to optimize your marketing processes. We work with select down-to-earth clients who want to find a better way to execute.

 

Strategically located in the heart of the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor

Location. Location. Location. We've got it in spades. Guelph is a quaint university town with close proximity to a number of regional hubs. Our team can easily get to clients across Ontario and the northeastern US.

 

One of our biggest advantages is talent and innovation. The surrounding universities, tech incubators and local lifestyle has created a “density of tech talent”. Our Founder renovated a historic building in downtown Guelph and launched Connect Digital Hub to tap into the community.

 

​And, with an average daily commute that our team measures in minutes, yeah, we're pretty thrilled to call Guelph home! We are even directly across from the Guelph train station.

 
 

Leadership Team

In a complex MarTech world, clients need experienced practitioners who are systems thinkers and professionals. We are a team of engineers and architects with years of applied tech and Dev/Ops experience. We Get Stuff Done (GSD) at Speed. And we make your processes better.
