About Five One Digital

Everyone has a story to tell.

Once upon a time…

…in the swamps of Broward County Florida, Jon & Melissa had an idea. You see, Jon worked at a big marketing agency who only took clients with big pockets. Melissa, an academic with a passion for local community, taught at the university and volunteered on a live local project in West Broward. Both were frustrated with the difficulties faced by local businesses, who just couldn’t keep up with the big budgets of the biggest national brands and were falling noticeably behind in online marketing.

A pretty good idea.

Jon & Melissa thought, “heck, why don’t we combine our passion and expertise and just start our own agency?” The idea was cultivated to provide big agency marketing to the local community at more affordable small agency prices. On one hand, Jon would get to code awesome websites and design creative campaigns. On the other, Melissa would get to continue her research and work hands on to grow local businesses.

An agency was born.

In 2012 Jon & Melissa launched Five One Digital, ready and armed with the tools to offer big agency services, like rich marketing campaigns and advanced web analytics, at reasonable prices that fit local business budgets. Thanks to a couple of clients early on that took a chance on an unknown agency, Five One Digital grew. Their mission stays the same today, and they continue to provide quality designs, innovative web development and creative marketing strategies to growing businesses in our South Florida community.
