ABOUT OUR FIRM
Through a leadership team of dedicated experts, a passion for serving our clients and doing what we do well, and maintaining the nimble nature of a small Minneapolis Digital Marketing firm, Digital Solutions (DS6) has excelled as a national leader both in the greater Minneapolis-Saint Paul area and beyond!
Digital Solutions, Inc. was founded in 1999 by our President, Marc Ohmann, when the web was just starting to grow in popularity. After surviving a “.com” bubble bursting and several reiterations of successful digital marketing strategies, Digital Solutions has seen all there is to see when it comes to serving our clients well online. Today the digital environment has become the most sought-after marketing niche available and for 16 years, Digital Solutions has had its pulse the entire time!
The Right Digital Partner
“Digital marketing is immensely complex. From web development practices to the nuances of good search engine optimization, analytical-driven data is not getting any simpler. Starting DS6 16 years ago, we have proven ourselves as a viable partner to get our clients found, chosen, and talked about.”
-Marc Ohmann, DS6 CEO
THE “LOW DOWN” ON DS6
Based in Minneapolis, MN Digital Solutions is a marketing technology firm that builds customized solutions to meet your specific business needs. Serving is at the heart of what we do at Digital Solutions because it’s on the heart of each and every employee. Founded in 1999 with a niche in helping Minneapolis-St.Paul businesses to easily and effectively manage their Internet Marketing, Digital Solutions has experienced substantial growth.
Now we serve businesses all over the country, whether big or small. Digital Solutions is also the parent company of MDWebPro and Aimē Analytics Technology:
After nearly 17 years of helping businesses migrate to the Internet, we have developed a streamlined system for creating satisfied clients. Our process ensures our customers satisfaction. Digital Solutions has taken the time to invest in a proven process for web, app, and digital marketing campaigns. At the end of each project, we ask for customer feedback because we continue to strive forward, always improving our processes. Do, Learn, Pivot is our mentality, and our goal is not sales but satisfied clients through that mentality.
We strive to be:
Client-goal centered | It’s not about what we do as a company, but what we help accomplish when it comes to your business, non-profit, or organizational goals.
Relationship focused | We operate in a fast-paced and evolving industry of digital marketing but one thing that has not evolved for 16 years is our focus on relationships. We have had clients for over 16 years and we keep seeking ways to increase the delivery of high quality products and services to our clients. Because without our valued clients, we would not have lasted for so many years.
Focused on your “return on investment” | At the end of the day any business must look at the bottom line revenue, net profit, and dollars your digital campaigns produce. No one understands that like Digital Solutions.
Through our work together and continuously pushing the limits of technology with innovative concepts and builds, we have created a successful reputation as a leader in the industry of digital marketing. Below are our services:
