About

OUR STORY, OUR TEAM

In 2011, we founded Alter Endeavors to reintroduce one of the most important elements to the digital marketing industry – the human one.

Our clients are all experts in something; whether it’s real estate, painting, moving, food, wine, finances or something equally as important. It’s our job to communicate your passion and your brand to the world. We specialize in social media integration, digital marketing strategies, SEO, and website design and development so that they work cohesively with your offline efforts.

Technology is important, but it should never replace the human element of your brand – your passion, your expertise, your customer service, your performance. As consultants, it’s important to us to find our clients the best of the best. If we don’t offer it in-house, we have a powerful group of affiliates and channel partners who will line up with us to get you where you need to go.

Your online brand matters now more than ever to the survival of your company. Let us help you bring the Human Element of your brand, your company, and your voice to your web presence and establish you as the thought leader in your industry.
