Taking a wholistic approach, WhizCom Marketing starts each assignment by working with the client to get the story, which is written, edited, illustrated, designed and, if necessary, reworked till it’s just right. Once it’s OK’d, our team then distributes the information across all traditional and social media platforms in Ventura, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara counties – and beyond, if appropriate – and we follow up when requested. Our job isn’t done till our client says it’s done.

All WhizCom Marketing associates are college-educated, highly professional journalists, public relations specialists, digital marketers, photographers and graphic artists with more than a century of collective experience working in traditional media, new media, web design, photography, graphic design and drone artistry.
