Having a developer mindset, we can dig into the analytics that helps businesses grow by using numbers and a true "out of the box" thought process. JM2 is dedicated to small businesses and small businesses solely.
You will not see any medium or large businesses at JM2 Webdesigners & Marketing as we feel that the small business needs help and doesn't need to see resources pulled by larger businesses. JM2 feels that when you have small, medium, and large businesses that the medium and large businesses eventually pull resources away from the small business. JM2 believes so much in that that they focus on helping small businesses grow with no distractions.
It is our Rule #1 that we live by each day. We have found that most organizations appreciate the honesty and candor that we bring to the table in helping them solve the problems and challenges they are facing. Our clients know we will always have their best interest at hand in providing a high level of customer service.
As we build solutions for our clients we make an emphasis to protect our client's data and proprietary information. Every day security becomes more important than the day before of everyone's personal and business lives. For every line of code, we develop and every decision we make we put an emphasis on protecting our client's information.
We are often asked why we place security after honesty. The simple answer is anyone can tell you they are secure yet can't back it up. At JM2 no one says anything unless it's true (note: Rule #1 above). JM2 uses Microsoft Azure for all its core servers and other industry leaders to protect their customers. All the servers are monitored by industry experts 24x7 with text and email alerts reaching the team often before anyone knows there might be an issue.
Exceptional Customer Service
We look at every problem that our client's present as our personal challenge to work with them to improve a specific problem. Whether this is just conveying the information displayed, answering a client's social media visitor, adding a call-to-action (CTA) to their website, or solving a customer's concern. We take complete ownership to help you achieve the task that you are trying to handle. Each week we have meetings to discuss how to improve our customer service and provide solutions that are better than the week before.
As a family-owned and operated company being friendly to our environment is critical to us. We use only sustainable environment technologies, servers that are backed by wind and solar energy (with the backup of the power grid and diesel generators). JM2 wants to not only provide a great and better world for our children but those of and those who haven't joined the JM2 family. Each decision JM2 does revolves around improving our environment. We build solutions that are designed to conserve energy and reduced environmental waste. This can be by providing a more robust user experience that requires less printing of manuals, all reports are given in electronic format and export as PDF files to help eliminate the need to print on paper.
How we came up with our name
JM2 Webdesigners started with two friends in the fall of 2011 who are still friends today. It took a year and a half to develop the business model, create the software that started us off, and make certain we provided a better solution for small businesses that want to grow and expand.
Both initial owners had the same initials of JM. One was married and the other had recently been engaged. Their significant others were critical to them taking that "leap of faith" to become entrepreneurs. Being the company had a foundational element of software development they came up with a mathematical idea to their name as that is the basis. The name JM2 is pronounced JM squared to cover not only the male owners but their significant others were an integral and equal part of their decision (e.g. two squared is four). The name is typically though just JM2 (JM Two) as it's easier for everyone to remember and pronounce.
After five years it became apparent that having a name that was just initials was not memorable and would not last the test of time. It fit the rule of being unique but not both unique and memorable. Being Holly who is one of the owners had a love for the abominable snowman and having come across a cute character of one we knew we had found our mark. This cute guy was not only unique but something memorable that people would remember. It would spark a conversation without saying a word and people would think about it even when we weren't around.
JM2 wouldn't die off though. It would become the parent to every business that we work with. Right now under the JM2 umbrella we have the following companies:
- Business YETI - Marketing is often seen as boring and something many small businesses cannot afford. Business YETI turns marketing on it's head. Started out from software developers (can you say nerds?). Getting your message out to the masses consistently and reliably is what we do. If people are thinking and talking about you when you aren't around then marketing is truly starting to take over and you're doing something amazing.
- Region Adventures - A resource that tells the stories of people and businesses throughout the United States and Canada. All of these adventures help improve and enlighten people's lives.
- Valpo Shirts - Is a custom t-shirt creator. We create several fun designs that cover all areas of life. We're more than that though. We have business products, artists, band members, DJ's, and more. We've utilize Bella+Canvas apparel for almost everything we do (businesses can choose another product line). This gives us the softest and most consistent product for you possible.
