We started Hit Your Mark to build better brands that resonate online in bringing people closer together.

Hit Your Mark Media Advertising Agency started in 2015 on the premise that the world is changing but timeless values never change, Hit Your Mark Media Digital Marketing is on a quest to make the world a smaller place through helping people and businesses build better and stronger relationships through technology. We are one of the top SEO companies.

We hold these basic beliefs that inform everything we do:

  • People do business with other people that the know, like, and trust
  • Each person is unique and has an indispensable, unique value proposition to offer the world
  • As 90% of communication is body language and tone and only 10% of actual words spoken, the best way to communicate is through physical presence. The second best way to communicate is through video.

We believe in the power of teams.

A team can do far more than any individual. This is why we pursue top talent and potential and craft each person into a core team position to create something better together than we ever could apart.

 

“Companies are the sum of vectors. Each part must align and pull together in a unified direction to accomplish greatness.”

Derek Archer – Founder of HYM

We also believe in the power of giving back and paying forward.

According to Kiva.org, 1.7 BILLION people can't access financial services and here in the U.S., we have what is known as a free checking account. The opportunities we have each day are unprecedented as we stand on the successes of others and previous generations. We believe we can help share these opportunities with others through microloans.

Microloans are financial contributions that get repaid by the borrower.

Kiva boasts a 97% repayment rate on average, helping to put money to work over and over again to help the underserved provide for themselves and their loved ones. This is why we have chosen to adopt Kiva as our non-profit of choice.

Because giving empowers the giver with a new sense of meaning and purpose and a bigger picture perspective on life, we match dollar-for-dollar every gift that our team members make to support a new entrepreneur on Kiva.

Our Growth Journey

Derek started his entrepreneurial journey.

Recently fresh out of college with a classical liberal arts degree from the prestigious Patrick Henry College just outside Washington D.C., Derek got married, bought his first home, and launched his first private enterprise; roughly in that order.

“Every seed must be planted before it can grow into something great.”

Derek Archer - Founder of Hit Your Mark

Second Enterprise Launched.

With the first enterprise humming along, Derek partners and launches second enterprise with partner and learns the true value of high-impact, low-cost marketing that digital provides. 🤔

“It isn't the best company that wins. It is the best marketed company that wins.”

Derek Archer - Founder of Hit Your Mark

First Enterprise Sold; Second Enterprise Failed.

2015 was a year filled with great change. Derek sold his stake in his first company and later that year, realizes the dismal collapse of the second company, losing lots of money but learning lots of lessons along the way. 😥

“The only wasted failures are the ones that you repeat.”

Derek Archer - Founder of Hit Your Mark

Hit Your Mark Launched.

2016 saw the birth of Hit Your Mark which became a HubSpot Partner Agency in that same year and hired its first team members. Word of mouth began to spread and Hit Your Mark started to disrupt the way digital marketing was perceived and done by many companies. 🙂

“It isn't what other people say that defines you. It is what you say about yourself that really gets inside your head.”

Derek Archer - Founder of Hit Your Mark

Office Locations and Staff Grow.

Additional Offices Opened on East Coast and the number of team members grow. Hit Your Mark sees tremendous growth in supporting auction and elder care and medical practice clients. 🙂

“Growth is about positioning and timing. Being available at the right time and with the right skills is the most important factor  in closing a deal and serving a new client well.”

Derek Archer - Founder of Hit Your Mark

The World Realizes that Digital and Remote Is Best

Hit Your Mark helps numerous clients and partners weather the pandemic storm of 2020 and realize new growth verticals in a changing market. HYM was already working remote and in the cloud, so it helps other businesses adapt to what's cool. 😎

“Remote work and cloud work is the new home of the information worker. You can now reach out and touch anyone in the world from the palm of your hands... without spreading germs.” 

Derek Archer - Founder of Hit Your Mark

Hit Your Mark Brings on Branding Officer

Propelled by tremendous growth in 2021 and 2022, Hit Your Mark realizes that it needs to practice more of what it preaches and develop its own brand and marketing presence to share value with a broader client base.😏

"Growth is always accomplished best by focusing on value. Help others realize great value and you will be rewarded in kind."
