In January 2022, Aletia Martin took the biggest leap of her career when she put her wealth of experience to work and started her own small business digital marketing firm. In less than a year, she leveraged her years of experience and business relationships to grow from zero clients to over a dozen, and she’s just getting started.
Aletia started her entrepreneurship journey by pursuing a degree in business administration from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, previously known as USL. After the birth of her son, she moved to Atlanta in 1994. Early in her career, Aletia held various positions ranging from the office manager to the auditor, to the property manager. Each of these positions played a pivotal role in giving her the foundation and experience she needed to work with both large corporations and small businesses.
In 2008, she and her family relocated to Virginia where she truly found her passion for marketing. Her tenure at R2R Associates as the director of member services, followed by her time with the Daily Press as a multimedia account executive, showed her how rewarding it could be to help clients achieve their business goals.
In 2012, she brought her talents to GovEvents, a government events portal and boutique business-to-government marketing company. Aletia started as the program manager, and over her nine-year tenure, she grew into the role of marketing manager before finally becoming the Director of Marketing. During that time, revenue increased from $250,000 to over $1,000,000 annually.
Now, Aletia and her team offer service-based businesses and e-commerce start-ups numerous digital marketing services and products that help them connect with their clients in meaningful ways. Aletia is passionate about marketing, but it’s the ability to help other people succeed that really lights a fire in her eyes. She credits this passion with the incredible success her business has seen early on.
Originally from south Louisiana, Aletia will always be a Cajun at heart, hence the fleur de lis in her branding. Currently, she lives north of Atlanta with her husband of 22 years, daughter, and three dogs. When she’s not working, or hanging with her family, you can usually find her practicing yoga or relaxing with a glass of wine.
