Schramm Marketing and Soper Web Studios have announced the merger of the two companies to better serve the marketing needs of King, Pierce, and Thurston counties. Erik Soper, of Soper Web Studios, specializes in web design, organization, hosting, and layout. His diverse skills will round out the already vast suite of services offered by Schramm Marketing.
Schramm Marketing specializes in providing diverse marketing solutions to both small and large organizations in the Puget Sound area. Services include branding, social media management, event planning, copywriting, graphic design, and media buying. Stephanie Schramm, a prominent fixture in the South Sound business community and a 17-year marketing veteran, leads the firm.
Erik Soper has worked with Schramm Marketing as a contractor since early 2015, and will now be a full-time team member. “I’m incredibly excited to officially join the Schramm Marketing team,” says Soper. “I’ve seen the quality of their staff and have been impressed from the beginning with the company’s vision.”
Erik brings an impressive portfolio of skills and clients with him to Schramm Marketing. After successfully starting his own web design business at age 19, Erik became involved with the Thurston County Chamber of Commerce and currently chairs a Chamber Leads Group. The mutually beneficial merger allows both parties to provide a wider array of services to their clients. “Bringing Erik on board solidifies Schramm Marketing as a true, fully-integrated marketing firm,” says Stephanie Schramm. “My goal for the firm is to continually innovate and grow our capabilities—merging with Erik’s company is a key step in that process.”
Erik will remain the lead on his existing clients’ projects, and will serve as the face of Schramm Marketing in Thurston County. “I’m very fortunate to have experienced success and have this new opportunity to cultivate my skills,” says Soper. “This merger will allow me to help others grow professionally, build a strong business, and enjoy what they do as well.”
