Ideadeco Agency was founded in 2000 by Areti Vassou, but the blog had a long history many years ago. Areti has been into Digital Marketing, SEO, Web Design, Graphic Design, Content Creation, Marketing Strategy, Branding, and Blogging since 1994.
It took us a long period of experimentation to settle down in the current form of our digital branding. All brands & blogs are evolving and change over the years.
Areti Vassou: The story of Ideadeco Blog is quite unorthodox because it took its first steps 6 years before the Agency. My personal aim in this blog was clear from the very beginning. I was already working on top-notch websites in Europe & the USA and I wanted to create my own personal digital nest for my own voice. The idea of the branded Ideadeco Blog started as a personal project but within the first year, the demand for new content associated with the ongoing projects was so high that my clients’ blogs occupied most of my working hours.
Facing the daily demands and questions from clients about digital marketing best practices, content creation & marketing challenges, SEO tactics, branding, blogging topics, social media strategy, web design, and marketing ethics, my personal blog seemed like the best place to provide all the answers. Week by week, eventually Ideadeco Blog became a trustworthy source of information for all my clients, their friends, their clients, and their colleagues, and the circle kept growing year after year.
The idea of the Ideadeco Blog started years before the Agency. Our first effort to craft a blog dated back to 1994. Since then and after many efforts we finally settled down in our everlasting blogging home, under the WordPress skin, on 23 April 2013. See our journey from 1994 until our official first day on WordPress.
About my Blogging Journey
Running a personal blog (not for clients) is keeping you in the loop of technology. Without much hesitation, I can say that thanks to my blog I have met a lot of interesting people. Also, deep research has become my side project and nature!
It has given me the opportunity to enjoy many interviews, close strong deals with clients, and is an active bridge to meet large business owners. Blogging has become an incredible source of search engine traffic and exposure for my skills as an SEO Expert, Content Creator, and Digital Marketing Strategist.
I have learned that it doesn’t need any magical powers to express yourself in public. All you have to do is to be brave, open, polite, and able to speak up. The act of writing transforms the way you see life and the people around you. Why? Because you speak less and observe more.
