Malama Online Marketing Team
The Malama Online Marketing team is operated entirely by me (Aaron), joining together the right craftsmen/craftswomen for each project from my pool of super-talented designers, branding experts, copy writers, and developers.
So then, the Malama team you will work with is actually made up of a group of professional business owners and freelancers, each bringing their skills to bear only on specific projects that call for it. You could call it a cooperative, with the project leader being the person closest to the client.
This flexible model allows us to work with clients nationwide and at half the cost of agencies and boutique firms, while providing you true specialists for your business.
I am proud to get to work with these professionals and love the results we bring our clients.
After years of being an online marketer on both the client and agency side, Aaron started Malama Online Marketing to help businesses grow on the web.
"I chose the concept of Malama (caretaker) because it intentionally puts the focus on helping my customers and their business, not my own. It also acknowledges that we are invested in each other and working together to produce good fruit. I see a caretaker of online marketing being responsible for making it thrive–fertilizing the environment, planting and growing the right elements, and trimming away the bad ones."
Aaron is a devil’s advocate by nature and can’t stop from viewing businesses and marketing from every angle.
In his spare time, Aaron loves taking to the mountains and the ocean with his family enjoying the sun, or inside watching too much television and critiquing advertisements.
