The Advertising & Digital Media students at Macleay College Melbourne were given another great opportunity to hear from someone who has started up their own agency – something that scares a lot of us.
Simon “SIMO/BALD EAGLE” Blangiardo is the Digital Strategist of Straight Out Digital.
Straight Out Digital describe themselves as a ‘kick-ass digital agency that believes design doesn’t need to be compromised when adding in digital strategy and goals.’
Simon told us all about how he got to where he is today; from early students days, to his first job being an Account Director, to now working in the digital world.
It was really cool to learn about how things work in the digital industry and how it’s important to stay on top of everything because of how fast technology and social media is moving.
He delved deep into the services Straight Out Digital offer, especially focusing on SEM (Search Engine Marketing) and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).
The digital world seems like a pretty scary (but also extremely awesome) place to live in.
Definitely check out their awesome website to see what they’re all about and all the crazy stuff they get to do on a daily basis!
