Our Story

Americom Marketing was founded in 2000 as a full service marketing and advertising company that quickly became one of the leading providers of ecommerce solutions. In 2001, the founder of Americom Marketing, Charlie Cooper, combined forces with a software engineer, Stefan Barlow, as they both saw a gap between the market options at the time and what customers were requesting. Cooper and Barlow both set out on a mission to merge traditional marketing design with best of class software design. They put their two fields of expertise together on the basic concept of: Traditional Advertising merging with Digital Marketing to produce a platform that was second to none.

In 2005, several key people were brought on like Ed Sturrock, to form a separate company called AmeriCommerce. The combined forces of a dedicated development team and marketing visionaries created what became the Top ecommerce solution in the country at the CODiE Awards in 2010. In 2014 the software company, AmeriCommerce, was purchased by Capital One.

Americom Marketing has now emerged as an award winning marketing company both at the regional and national levels, being recognized numerous times by the Davey Awards and the Addy Awards for excellence in Website Design, TV Production, and Graphic Design. With Lance LaRue, as Creative Services Director, the commitment to excellence in the creative process and branding has never been greater. Lance previously served as a Brand Strategy Manager for Capital One.

A video production facility has now been constructed within the offices of Americom. The goal is to produce world class video with commercials, interviews, short form documentaries, and product presentations that will keep our customers as industry leaders in the ever changing digital marketing space for years to come.

As for expansion, the Austin, Texas office is now up and running. As we continue to grow we try stay true to core beliefs. A few of those core beliefs are….“Have Fun, but Get the Job Done” and “Treat others like you would want to be treated”. This includes going the extra mile and striving for customer satisfaction in a mutually beneficial environment.
