Altec Design was founded by Brian Limback & Samuel Bell in 2004 while both were enrolled at
Parkway South High School (what high school did you go to?). The company initially started out
building websites for lake resorts on Bull Shoals lake, and eventually expanded into managing
one of the largest tourism websites in Missouri (Show Me Lakes). After
graduating from the University of Missouri in 2009 Brian went on to work for a large E-commerce
website, managing their inbound marketing. Sam meanwhile moved up to Chicago to work at Blue
Cross Blue Shield helping to keep millions of customer records safe, but quickly left to come
back and pursue the Altec Design dream. In 2012 Brian Limback also decided to come back full
time to Altec. With both Brian and Sam working full time the company has continued to grow every
year, and now manages IT and Online Marketing for some of the largest companies in the St. Louis
The Altec Design team specializes in Custom Development, Inbound Marketing & Website Hosting/Management. Altec Design is also a Google Certified advertising partner with years of experience creating paid and organic search campaigns with strong ROI. We consult with companies remotely and occasionally onsite to help them outline a strategic plan to maximize their online marketing efforts. We do all our work "in house" and don't white label products from any 3rd party vendors or services.
The world of inbound marketing is broken up into 2
main segments, paid traffic and organic traffic. Our expert SEO & PPC team
will assess your situation and quickly execute steps that will start your
journey towards the top of the search engine result page.
While some other companies specialize in a broad "shotgun" type targeting approach, we use what could be considered more of a "laser" type of marketing strategy. We will zero in on what your site needs to rank and then execute the plan quickly and effectively.
