This month, the partners of local digital marketing agency, Rock My Image celebrate two years of successful business from their San Marco based headquarters. Jen DeVore Richter, Kenny Harper and Manny Torres initially started working together in 2012 as referral partners passing business between each of their respective creative service companies. Jen was a marketing consultant, Kenny a web developer and Manny owned a graphic design firm and printing company.
After a year of successfully working on joint projects, the trio decided to partner to provide agency quality marketing services to local businesses. CoWork Jax, a local coworking community downtown Jacksonville, provided a great proving ground and incubator space for the team. After achieving success with initial test projects and client work, they completed the transition to an agency model and incorporated as Rock My Image, LLC. Soon after, the agency relocated to Broward Studios in San Marco. Broward Studios provided the perfect environment for Rock My Image who were searching for a well designed space that would inspire them artistically.
“For our team, working from San Marco has been a big contributor to our success. We are close to downtown, feel reenergized after lunches in the square, and our clients enjoy meeting in the beautiful Broward Studios,” said Manny Torres, San Marco resident.
In addition to celebrating their two year business anniversary, Rock My Image has also been instrumental in building the Jacksonville Online Marketing Meetup (The JOMM) into a strong professional organization which helps local business owners, entrepreneurs and marketing professionals connect with each other to learn new strategies and techniques in the dynamic world of online marketing. Kenny Harper is the group’s organizer and all three partners are members of The JOMM board of directors.
The Rock My Image team has grown beyond the three partners to include a full time web designer & video specialist, social media manager and student interns each semester. The group recently finished the first draft of a marketing book and is developing online products to help entrepreneurs, business owners and marketers improve their marketing results.
