The Story Behind Fullmoon Digital and Derek Chew.

Although our agency was founded in August of 2017, his marketing roots go back to 2002. Our founder, Derek Chew, learned marketing because he had need to pay the bills — there’s no sexy story behind it. When he got laid off after his first job out of college in Ann Arbor, Michigan, he created his first website and started marketing other peoples products and services through affiliate, but he lost over $30,000 in marketing dollars.

He was left with no choice but to learn marketing, and he eventually got good at it. Derek never planned on doing marketing for other companies until he realized how many businesses were being bamboozled with no results to show for their investments. He decided to create a different kind of digital agency, one that was #unsexy, honest and only took on clients that he could actually help.

And instead of focusing on expanding the agency, his number one focus was to help his clients grow and provide a ROI positive experience.

 

Our values drive our work

They don’t just define who we are, but they are our pillars to make our clients successful

Gratitude

We are grateful for every client who decides to work with us. Because they can go anywhere else, but chose our team. We treat every client like family and do what is best for them. Every time.

Integrity

We do what we say, and say what we do. We believe in the simplicity and that every complex situation can be solved by focusing on what matters.

Empathy

Business is not just about making money. It’s about being human and understanding the needs of others and putting their needs ahead of ours.

Excellence over Perfection

We believe in excellence of our work. But we hate the idea of being perfect. We are perfectly happy with being imperfect. We are constantly learning and challenge ourselves and each other to find and fulfill our superpowers.

Purposeful

We are passionate about marketing, branding and content creation. We channel this passion and energy to the clients we work with — our positivity is contagious.

But I’m not a salesperson, I honestly hate sales more than anything else. At the core, I’m a geek…a math guy and a marketer.

I like focusing on what I am good at and only that, which is: driving traffic to websites.
