Our clients are more than just numbers. They are real businesses, built by people trying to make an impact in their communities. That’s why we see our clients as partners, which is why our digital marketing team is thoroughly invested in their success. Through a variety of tools and strategies, we help our partners achieve their goals and grow as people and a business. We love making an impact on communities across the country by helping local businesses thrive!
Mike Schmidt started Anchor Wave in his college dorm room at The University of Arizona in 2003. He was coding websites and having client meetings in that cramped space. Even with the lack of a professional setting, his dedication and passion struck a chord with the businesses he was working for.
As Mike grew the business, he understood the pressure and burdens of entrepreneurs more and more. Clients were no longer clients, but partnerships in business. Mike was passionate about seeing his partners grow their businesses, and as those businesses grew, Anchor Wave did as well.
Anchor Wave has grown a team of more than 21 team members, all with a spirit of entrepreneurship.Many team members grew up in a family-run business, or they started a business on their own. Lilly Darling, Anchor Wave’s CEO, ran her own design agency for more than two decades before she filled the shoes that Mike left. (He is now teaching other agencies how to be successful using our proven methods!) We love to see that spark of innovation and passion from our team. We also know they understand that starting and running a business is no easy path, and they are dedicated to helping small to medium sized businesses gain their voice and get their message out to their community.
When you work with Anchor Wave, you will find that our agency becomes your partner in success.
