The Quality of a Big Agency,
The Price of a One-Man-Show

The main problem with major advertising, web and/or content agencies is that it's 3 different companies and you pay triple the price as a customer. Nowadays, more and more startups are competing with the big brands of the world and trying to make their voice heard! The agencies that can help you are so big that they are pricey too busy creating ads for McDonalds and Pepsi while your company is left with no talented resources. Since the beginning, JED Lab has helped hundreds of young entrepreneurs start their own businesses while offering the same quality then these big agencies minus the heavy overhead and budget cost. We are a lean company that takes pride in staying boutique size. It allow us to move quicker and adapt to the latest technologies, internet trends and give you a competitive price option. The world is getting smaller and we take great advantage in virtual resourcing and working in a satellite workspace environment during post-production time. Although, our business analysts and account executives will always make the trip to meet with our customers Quebec and Ontario to understand their needs and maintain an ongoing relationship during and after the project is completed.
