About Us

A virtual hello to you…

Digital Marketing by Design was founded on the singular focus of helping clients who needed both administrative and technical assistance in their business. Combining these two areas means that you can take care of many aspects of your business all at once. This one-stop-shop approach allows us to utilize all the digital marketing and technical skills we have acquired over the years to assist you. We are eager to roll up our sleeves, get things done, and help our clients check things off their To-Do List. We want you to get on with the business of running your business and we will work diligently behind the scenes. What is even better? We get to serve clients worldwide.

My Story

This is the part that always makes me nervous… talking about myself. Well, for starters, I’m a bit of a techie. I love tinkering with new apps, tools, and software that create efficiencies and workflows for myself and my clients so we can get more done in less time! As a mom of 3, I really need to get a lot of things done, quickly!!

The past 4 years have been so transformative for me personally and professionally since starting my business. I started my home-based business so I could spend more time with my children and family but also be available to my parents as much as possible. My daily, 4-hour commutes were draining so I am loving every minute of my entrepreneurial-mom life with the extra time I have gained. This journey has taught me so much about who I am and what I am truly capable of.

As an introvert, my business suits me perfectly but don’t get me wrong, I love meeting and connecting with new people, hearing their stories, and sharing our life journeys. If you follow me on Instagram, you can probably tell I love cooking (and food!), travel, nature, photography, and running. But, there is so much more than meets the eye and I look forward to learning more about you as well!

Feel free to drop me line if you would like to connect or learn more about how Digital Marketing by Design can help you make your business life simpler.

 

It’s great connecting with you.

Why work with us?

We help small business owners and entrepreneurs take care of their digital marketing and technology so that they can focus on the revenue-generating activities of their businesses. 

Sharon King has over 20 years of corporate experience and has amassed a lot of skills in digital marketing and technology. Over the past decade, she has committed herself to learn new skills so that she can offer her clients the administrative and technical support they need from one solution provider. These combined skills are so valuable as virtual support professionals because we can then wear many hats, figuratively speaking. Working with a diverse group of clients, we also get to put our hands in a lot of cookie jars and by being flexible and adaptable, we fit into your workflow seamlessly!

The writing on the wall…

“Let me just say how much I appreciate your hard work and the impact you have made here at Habitat HM!  We are nothing without the support of volunteers like you, you are our secret power, I just want you to know that your work hasn’t gone unnoticed. Thank you for all that you do!”

It was always very pleasant working with Sharon. She is very positive and strives to please never letting negative situations get her down. Foremost amongst her strengths is her ability to organize and attention to detail. Sharon put together a number of excellent training documents for our team. Her attitude was always professional and she brings her best to each task she tackles.

“Working with Sharon has been a pleasure and exactly what I needed! I wanted to find ways to expand my business and prepare for future growth. Sharon really understood what I was trying to achieve and from our very first working call, she proved to be resourceful, creative and a problem-solver.”

Mary Trentadue

“It was such a pleasure to work with Sharon. She worked with me on several different marketing projects and was a great addition to my team. She is very detail-oriented and helped keep me organized, which is so important when you have a lot of things on the go at once. Sharon always delivered more than I expected. I never had to worry whether anything was done – because it always was!”

Tracey D’Aviero

“Sharon has been a pleasure to work with, bringing her attention to detail to every aspect of the tasks we set out for her. Her communication and interpersonal skills are excellent, and she always met our tight deadlines. This can be attributed to her strong organizational skills, efficiency and responsiveness to our requests, regardless of the lead time she was presented with. I can highly recommend her based on her technical and interpersonal skills. Sharon was always very easy to work with, reliable, and accommodating. Those involved with the project would be more than happy to work with her again.”
