Practical small business digital solutions, how-tos, and more
About UGH! Media: we strive to help small businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs
We have a knack for finding/explaining PRACTICAL digital solutions for small businesses on a budget. In short, we focus on digital solutions that can be quickly learned or fixed using free (or inexpensive) apps/tools.
Ultimately, we do the research, tool testing, and overall experiential learning. Then, we provide step-by-step guides, suggestions, and reviews in our blog (and infographics on Pinterest)!
TL;DR – Practical digital solutions for small businesses (via how-tos, business process management advice, app/plugin research, and more.
Other ways we help small businesses
Not only are we striving to be a one-stop-shop for practical digital solutions, but a green, 100% remote company! Actually, we are already 100% remote, but we aren’t quite there with 100% green. Working on it (check out the badge at the bottom of this page)!
Ultimately, we do what we do by staying up-to-date on new website technologies, trendspotting, and happenings in the online marketing world.
TL;DR – We translate experiential research into blogs, reviews, polls, etc. After that, we update content accordingly and seek affiliate partnerships.
Are there any fees?
Nope! Our goal is to help small businesses save time, money and give some peace of mind. So, to accomplish that, we don’t have any fees, and the way we keep the website going is by showing (minimal amounts of targeted) ads. We’re also growing affiliate partnerships for the apps/tools that we research and write about.
TL;DR – Nope!
Where we are located
We are a 100% distributed (AKA remote) company based in Pittsburgh, PA. (As of 9/3/21, we are in the midst of an LLC dissolution. Our goal is to relocate to a more remote-friendly and eco-friendly state in 2022. Yay! For more info, view the timeline announcement.)
Please note, we don’t have a physical office space for visitors. In other words, don’t be creepy and show up at the door. If you want to reach out, visit the contact page.
How UGH! Media came to be
Firstly, one of our co-founders worked in online higher education, and the other in retail and website/game development. They also freelanced for several small businesses in varying capacities.
Throughout their time in higher education and retail, one thing ironically stuck out to BOTH of them…
Small business digital solutions were impossible to find unless a company pays tons of money for “digital marketing services!”
P.S. “digital marketing services” and digital solutions aren’t the same!
Then, on one dark and stormy (freelancing) afternoon…
…they discovered a significant (and expensive) service issue with a large online marketing provider!
Then, at that (almost) exact moment, UGH! Media magically materialized from the “Cloud!” And then, a couple of months/years later, you landed on this page and started reading.
Okay, slightly embellished!
However, if you want to know the specifics, check out our timeline.
Although we specialize in digital solutions, as of Jan. 1, 2019, we no longer accept individual service requests. However, we do take inquiries/questions (see Contact Us page for more info).
