It’s all a numbers game in business, and last year, 352
Media Group exceeded them all.
In 2011, 352 Media Group brought on 24 new employees for its
Web development and digital marketing team, a 61% increase from 2010. Its staff
wasn’t the only thing growing, though. The company also increased its revenue

the core Web solutions team has grown by 60 percent since its founding.
“We’ve really been able
to distinguish ourselves from being just another Web design company that offers
template Web packages for clients that have smaller budgets,” said Jan
Siemaszko, director of sales and marketing for 352 Media Group’s core Web
