Who We Are


Start Web Services is a service of the Start Group.

The Start Group is the name given to our family of companies: Start Advertising and Marketing, Inc., Start Corporation, and Start Performance all privately owned by the Dark family. Start Web Services is exclusively serving independent telephone companies nationwide with Web site creation, Web and e-mail hosting, and support and maintenance services. We can be your one-stop domain name Web and e-mail service provider.

Start Advertising & Marketing, Inc. is the flagship of the Start Group. The agency was founded in 1971 as Dark III Marketing, Inc. and was renamed Start Advertising in 2003. Start Advertising provides a full array of advertising and marketing services for consumer and business-to-business clients as well as dozens of independent telecommunications companies in 20 states. Our services include marketing plans, research, training, campaign design, Web production, print management, and media time/space/hit placement.

At Start Web Services, we understand that Web services today involve much more than just site development. The Web is a constantly evolving marketplace of active and interactive sites, and the science of attracting and guiding eyeballs through the maze demands specialists. Our experience in Web technologies dates back to the beginning - we helped introduce Internet access to some 90 markets nationwide (plus the American Samoa!) in the 1990s. We can design your Web program, build your Web site, and support both.

We understand that you have a business to run and want to focus your time and resources on doing that. Start Web Services is made up of 10 in-house Web producers and we maintain an alliance with 6 freelance production firms. We stand ready to be a source that will empower you to take full advantage of the limitless potential of the Web media.
