How We Got Our Start
Espire Marketing has a passion for small business. Our founder Harry Watson started his own small business when he was just 5 years old by picking up scrap rocks from around his parents yard, painting them, and selling them door-to-door around the neighborhood.
While growing up Harry worked for his family’s successful business located in Columbus, Ohio known as the Flag Lady’s Flag Store. He has done everything from sweeping the carpet to helping the production team produce the businesses custom flags.
In 2008 Harry left the family business to explore more opportunities and he landed at Eretailing Associates LLC where Harry was given the opportunity to really expand his knowledge of Internet marketing. Eretailing Associates is the owner of many online businesses, their flagship website is CustomizedGirl.com. He started out as a search engine optimization intern and by the time he left he had been in charge of many of the different facets of internet marketing including, social media, video marketing, public relations, search engine optimization, and affiliate marketing.
In 2010, Harry came back to the Flag Lady Inc. and is currently the head of the Internet marketing department and plays a significant role in all marketing decisions for the company. Since his arrival back at the Flag Lady, they have seen a significant growth in their online sales. By the third month of Harry’s renewed employment the company had already surpassed the previous year’s sales online and was seeing a steady 40% improvement each month of the previous years.
Being around small business all of his life Harry has found a true passion for helping them succeed. While working at Eretailing Associates in 2008, Harry launched espiremarketing.org – a site dedicated to Internet marketing, and focused all of his ideas with small businesses at the center of his model. In 2010, Harry founded Espire Marketing, LLC a company that is dedicated specifically to small business marketing, development, and consultation online. Harry founded the company in hopes to bring knowledge and understanding to other small businesses about Internet Marketing. He saw a need to cater to businesses that were working with fewer resources. Espire Marketing is happy to offer full service Internet marketing and development services to small businesses across the country.
