Between 1994 and 1995 two guys were born. One named Edward, one named Britton, both raised to appreciate and support the local businesses that populated their communities. Fast-forward 20 years to Wilkes University, Wilkes-Barre, PA. These two young gentlemen meet and become best friends, and MRQT Ideation was born...well, kind of.
Britton started building websites his sophomore year of college and had created a small customer base of online presence customers. Edward had built a reputation as a great salesman and marketeer at multiple organizations. They realized that together they would make a great team and after both graduating from Wilkes, they decided to create MRQT Ideation.
There's more to it than that, but basically that's the story in a nut shell. But, how we formed our business isn't important. What's important is our mission; our mission to help local businesses succeed.
For both of us, a majority of our lives has been spent in and around small, local businesses. We saw first hand what these businesses did for the communities and families around them, like providing good paying, secure jobs. Their products and services were high quality with a unique, personal touch. They raised the quality of life for everyone around them. Communities thrive because of these businesses that speckle the rural landscapes and downtowns. We wanted to be involved with these businesses- we wanted to help them grow, make their lives easier, give them even more to be proud of. We wanted to be part of their lives and make an impact on them- we wanted to return the favor.
MRQT Ideation became the how and what to our why. With the rise of SEO, social media, online advertising, and Web 2.o, we saw how vital it was for small and local businesses to have an online presence, and a good one, if they wanted to survive. With enough experience to be effective, we decided we would help small businesses thrive by helping them build great online presences that would make them stand out among their competition.
Since the beginning of MRQT Ideation, we have and continue to grow, learn, and refine our processes. And now you're here reading this thinking...wow, these guys sounds pretty alright. Well, all we can say is that we look forward to hearing from you!
