Collaboration was the origin of 323 Media. Our founders were working together in complementary roles in Sales & Marketing, but while they had the same objective, it was like they were working at two different companies. In fact, the marketing team was working on promotions without consulting the sales team to understand what their customers’ key selling points were. The sales team wasn’t sharing what their leads were telling them or which competitors were the biggest threat.
Finally working together a few years later, the connection clicked and the results followed. Since that day, we’ve added key people to build and lead our in-house team. This became the genesis of 323 Media – take action after identifying a chance and collaborate to supply the right solution with a team that aligns business goals with deliverable results.

We all know it can be challenging to think creatively sometimes, especially if it’s your job every day. Josh has a way with words, he literally was born with it. What started as proofing papers and children’s books has transformed into thriving with words being used for content marketing, search engine optimization and spot-on call-to-actions.
“If I’m stuck I just move on to another project and come back to it later. Writing has always been intuitive for me – I’m sure being raised by a 10x-published children’s book author has been a contributing factor.”
Being able to ensure the right voice for any specific audience is key to messages getting through and making an impact. Josh manages the content creation, editing and publishing. Having fun with words means there might be an easter egg or clever backstory built-in.
