Echo Millennial began its operations in 2014 and is based out of Orange County, CA. Our mission is simple and direct:
To help small business and independent service professionals establish and build upon a digital and social media marketing strategy that keys its focus to the emerging “power” demographic of 22-35 year-olds — the Millennial generation. We aim to provide high quality solutions that tackle the challenges of engaging today’s digitally driven and mobile oriented marketplace.
Echo Millennial’s origin is rooted from the professional experiences of its founder, Jeffrey Bautista. After several years of successfully working in digital/mobile media and web product design for powerhouse clients such as Disney-ABC, PBS.org, and US Army and US Airforce, Jeff decided to pursue his other interest and began working as a Marketing Director for a successful commercial real estate firm. While engaging with many of the firm’s clients, he recognized that a majority of these small businesses were in need of modernized websites and digital marketing strategies. Often, these clients would lament that there just wasn’t enough time or resources available to devote to what they acknowledged was a very important component to future growth. Ultimately, they would admit, “it is just too expensive.”
With such a great need in the marketplace for high-quality, yet affordable digital marketing services, Jeff set out to develop a solution to the problem, leveraging on his own expertise, a focused technology and market research effort, and the creativity and ingenuity of his trusted team of former colleagues. Together, they formulated a proprietary system that would allow for the production of a lean, effective, high-quality service solution.
