What We Do
AE Digital Creative is solution driven. We are focused on building flexible ecosystems that help your brand stand above the rest. Whether you’re in need of a complete brand design and digital strategy or a powerful custom website, we’re here to celebrate your brand, grow your audience and drive results.
A Digital Ecosystem requires upkeep. As your service or product line evolves — so should your brand’s story! Our passion lies in creating short and long-form content that your audience will find educational and engaging. Our Digital Marketing team consists of writers and strategists who are eager to tell your story, grow your audience and increase conversions. We offer a full menu of services, including:
Our team creates ad campaigns that embody your brand. Whether you want to grow your online platform, increase engagement with your audience or sell more product — we’re focused on your goals.
We’ve made it our business to become experts in Facebook and Google Ads. While anyone can pay to run an ad these days, our team knows how to build a relevant audience, select high-quality keywords, write ad copy that converts and create visuals that inspire!
Platforms we manage:
Email marketing is a critical piece of your brand’s ecosystem. This is an audience that has shown their commitment to your brand by taking the time to provide personal information and trusts that you will deliver valuable information to their inbox.
Our service isn’t an attempt to obnoxiously push product — it’s a way to strengthen the relationship with your audience and convert them into true advocates for your brand. Whether you want a fancy template design for monthly newsletters, a strategic sales funnel you can rely on or an automated process to capture feedback and reviews from recent customers, our team can deliver.
Search Engine Optimization
Search-Engine Optimization has been made out to seem like black magic, but the service we provide is straightforward and effective. We help potential customers find your brand by ensuring that the product or service you offer is clearly stated across your digital ecosystem. Voodoo, right?
A Foundational SEO package with our team includes sitting down to discuss your industry. From there, our team researches terms commonly searched within said industry. We develop a list of keywords that should be strategically used across your website, while ensuring there are no issues with your current listings or reasons why your website would not be properly indexed by search engines.
After the foundational work is done, our Ongoing SEO package includes continual keyword research and the creation of new web pages and blog posts that incorporate these key terms, allowing you to stay competitive in your search engine rankings.
A brand’s website exists for two reasons — to tell the story of your brand and how it can solve the problem(s) your audience is facing. Blogging is instrumental in doing both of the above.
Our Digital Marketing Strategists develop long-form content of two types: foundational and educational. Foundational pieces convey the core values of your brand. Educational pieces answer lingering questions a potential customer has about your product, service, or industry. We are storytellers at our core and blogs allow us to translate a brand’s “why” into a 300+ word piece that gives readers a clear picture of what your brand stands for and why it exists.
Not to mention, blogging has the power to be a fantastic search engine optimization tool. Which is why each piece we produce is keyword-focused and optimized to Google’s liking.
The Digital Ecosystem you’re working to build is your own — which is why the services we offer are completely customizable. If you intend to build it on your own, but would like some guidance along the way, we offer Digital Marketing Audits that help you identify key elements of your brand and how to implement them into your strategy.
For brand’s with an in-house team that would like specialized training, we’re here to help on an as-needed basis.
We started as a website shop, and have since evolved into so much more, but websites will always be our wheelhouse. Since Alter Endeavors was founded in 2011, websites went from being an online brochure to being an online platform that needs to be interactive and conversion focused. Because of this change, we’ve changed too. We now approach websites as part of your overall platform development that encompasses all of your owned media.
Website Design & Development
Our process starts with goals. What are you looking to accomplish with your digital platform? Your website, the nexus for your entire digital ecosystem, needs to empower the visitors to your brand to take actions you intend for them to take in order to achieve the goals you have set for your brand to accomplish both online and off.
Designing and building your website with Alter Endeavors goes well past the idea of “stunning” or “beautiful”. Designing a website to be gorgeous means nothing if the site does nothing to drive traffic to the most essential and crucial conversion points that mean either growing your owned audience presence and/or generating a lead or selling a product. Of course, we demand from ourselves visually impressive work that will make any potential site visitor stop and appreciate the level of excellence your brand commands, but visual impact must guide site visitors to take action if you intend to meet your goals.

E-Learning Platforms and Courses
For speakers and thought leaders, the current landscape is moving towards an emphasis on digital platforms and media. At Alter Endeavors Digital Creative, we have worked with industry leaders to build standout E-Learning Platforms and Courses. These tools achieve several objectives:
- Establish thought leadership and authority
- Educate and grow an engaged community
- Provide a source of passive revenue that is managed completely online
E-learning Platforms require a design and development class of their own. Since 2011, when Alter Endeavors was founded, we have developed e-commerce enabled platforms and personal brand websites for the likes of Tom Rath (Strength Finders & Eat Move Sleep), Dee Ann Turner (Chick-fil-a), Karen Martin (founder of TKMG & TKMG Academy), Nicole Patel (Delysia, a world–winning chocolatier), David Bull (Ark Financial, a national wealth advisor), Rusty Shelton (Forbes consultant, best-selling author, and owner of Zilker Media), and more. Over time, we have created a dedicated process for speakers, thought leaders, and content creators that wish to educate their audience with a robust and engaging virtual course.
