WE'RE SETTING THE WEB ABLAZE!
SouthFire Media began as a spark and quickly grew into a flame. What started as a short break between two stressful newspaper jobs for founder Jimmy Bennett turned into a career in the computer business. This led to the purchase of a web server, which led to the development of a website for a client, which eventually led to the creation of SouthFire Media.
Prodded relentlessly for years by good friend to put his old newspapering skills to work â€“ and challenged by an important customer who had a bad experience with another local web development company â€“ Bennett agreed to develop a website for the Peach County, Georgia, commissioners. He and his company's resident technical genius Adrian Haager, with help from friend and business associate Brian Tesene, built their first major website in just over 30 days. The spark for SouthFire Media was ignited.
A few months later, a study group at the University of Georgia praised the county for the improvements to its site. Other government agencies noticed and before long, more counties and cities came calling.
Operating as a division of ComputerOne, the new web business flourished and the roster of satisfied customers continued to grow, even without the benefit of a sales staff or a marketing budget.
Building on a foundation laid by ComputerOne's successful 26-year run as Augusta's best-known computer company, SouthFire assembled a team of dedicated designers, developers, SEO and marketing specialists, and copy writers. In addition, we also grew a support staff and a sales and marketing team â€“ all committed to delivering the most creative and compelling websites available anywhere at the best possible price.
From the start, we completed our very first project on time and on budget and learned an early lesson â€“ nothing is more important than prompt attention to customer service requests.
In 2019, SouthFire’s blaze continued to spread. SouthFire Media and M3 Agency merged and together formed a powerful, unprecedented team of skilled digital strategists, web developers, designers, and marketing experts. Our web solutions capabilities and digital reach now stretch further than ever before.
