Short Story

MECCA (Making Engaging Creative Content Always) Marketing Group Inc. is a digital design, strategy and development agency. With Chicago continuing to be a major hub in local design and development communities, MECCA Marketing provides digital solutions for organizations and businesses that range from small, local, and boutique operations to some of the largest companies and brands in the world.

Lenora Blackamore established MECCA Marketing Group (MMG) Inc. in 2015. She has more than 20 years of extensive web development and digital strategy experience creating engaging websites for a diverse portfolio of clients.

Blackamore’s journey in web development and solutions began in 1996 as a web designer for BankOne in downtown Chicago. Later, she became the Web Manager for Johnson Publishing Company, publisher of Ebony and Jet magazines. Blackamore led the effort to redesign and launch EbonyJet.com, transforming the company from being just a printing and publishing company to an online source for engaging content for Black media. As a direct result of this move, the company’s annual revenue grew by more than $2 million dollars in online advertising alone.

Today, the average person has one digital interaction every five minutes. That means, now more than ever, businesses must make each website visit count. MMG acknowledges that many local businesses are not active on search engines like Google and, as a result, are missing out on potential revenue streams. MMG takes pride in being able to bridge the gap between the customer and the business owner by offering an enhanced, customized online presence.

By creating a digital portfolio that captures the vision and goals of the company, a greater connection with customers is established. By choosing MMG, clients receive a personal commitment, which leads to maximized customer exposure to products or services at a competitive rate and on-time delivery.

While many web development firms charge astronomical rates for web development, MMG is sensitive to the budget constraints of smaller businesses that are looking to build their online presence. Most important, MMG steers clear of a “cookie-cutter” approach and is committed to developing web services that are customized to the needs of every client. As a first step, MMG meets with each customer for an in-depth consultation to identify needs and goals, while offering practical solutions at an affordable rate.

MMG being is an active member of the Chatham business community, Woodlawn Business Association and Ektron/EPIServer Group, and all clients enjoy access and exposure to these networks. MMG is a versatile web design and development group that specializes in brand identity and strategy, front-end and back-end development and application design.
