Why Engaging a Digital Agency Can Save a Lot of Headaches

Posted by Steve Fry on September 1, 2016

For the past twenty years we have heard leaders from all types of organizations ask why they should engage us rather than hire their own internal digital team. For those companies that have the genuine need for a full team -- and the desire to hire and train -- this is a worthy question worth consideration.

Spindustry's Business Evolution

Posted by Jessica Plunkett on June 8, 2016

Enjoy an occasional series of posts about Spindustry as we celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2016. 

When Spindustry opened its doors in 1996, a handful of employees focused on database development using Access Database technology. Fast-forward 20 years and we’ve seen such vast changes in technology languages, the internet, business processes and hand-held technology that we never could have imagined – and that have influenced the growth of our company.

Posted by Jessica Plunkett on April 8, 2015

Spindustry Digital will celebrate its 19th anniversary this fall. During that time, Spindustry’s services have evolved to meet the digital needs of businesses. Our core foundation, building really stellar and solid web applications, hasn’t changed. However, the phrase we use to describe our business has changed – from a web development shop to a digital marketing agency. We’re often asked what that means or what it’s like to work at a digital marketing agency. Here’s the scoop.

Happy 17th!

Posted by Michael Bird on October 2, 2013

Spindustry is celebrating its 17th year in business this October. Not the most popular anniversary or birthday.

Regarding 17th birthdays, you’re stuck between just getting your driver’s license and officially being classified as an adult. We have joked in the office, as we hear the Midwestern chirp of the locust / cicada outside, who emerge every 17 years, that we have reached our cicada anniversary; still not helping…

Innovation

Posted by Michael Bird on August 28, 2013

Innovation is a big concept and sometimes hard to define; sometimes a “you know it when you see it” type situation and others when you didn’t even know it happened. Does innovation occur when a crazy inventor first dreams up the impossible or when the use of it becomes ubiquitous? As an example, you notice it to be odder that someone does NOT have a cell phone than those that do. Either way, innovation happens and it drives us forward.

Is Spindustry Digital an innovative company? In a way, we use modern programming languages, social media channels, mobile technology and other tools to implement the dreams of our clients; but we didn’t create those programming languages or marketing techniques. But again, as stated above, does innovation truly happen when some unique tool is developed or when someone figures out a great way to apply it? I think the answer is both.
