Our Story

Co-founders Brendan Hannan and Curtis Steyn started THE DIGITAL MARKET in 2016. They noticed a distinct absence of high-quality Digital Marketing business content online. They discovered that most articles were (and still are) written by generalists churning out multiple articles a day. Comprehensive answers for small business questions were virtually impossible to find online.

They launched THE DIGITAL MARKET to fill that gap. To develop useful and actionable content, they built a team of experts with current, real-world experience. Our editorial team members have been educators, certified public service providers, Digital industry advisors, and of course, Digital business owners.


More than 4 000 monthly readers trust us to deliver the INDUSTRY INSITES and TOOLS they need. Our audience relies on our content to make critical business decisions, and our partners understand that our commitment to editorial independence is what makes affiliation with us valuable.
Our mission is to deliver the best answers to marketers’ questions, and our values are the guiding principles that enable us to deliver on that mission.
To accomplish this, we focus on producing high-quality content, getting it in front of the people who want and need it most, and reference partners that serve their needs.

How do we do this? We ask questions and do hours of data-driven research to find the best, most comprehensive answers possible. The more information we gather, the more effective we are at delivering on our mission of providing the best answers to your questions


We do thousands of hours of data-driven research to find the best, most comprehensive answers possible. The solutions we recommend to business owners often include products and services. When a product or service is included in an article, we sometimes earn a fee or a commission from the advertising partner based on readers’ actions.

Our expert team of writers make recommendations in our buyer’s guides and reviews based on independent quantitative and qualitative assessments. To maintain editorial independence from our business operations, our writers and editors always have the final say on whether a partner is included anywhere on our site.

Because we only partner with product and service providers that we believe in, there are many companies, products and services featured on our site simply because, in our view, they are beneficial to our readers. These partnerships result in no compensation for THE DIGITAL MARKET.

Our business model allows us to bring you the best answers to your questions, without editorial biases or cluttering the site with banner ads that everyone hates.
