Who We Are

The AGUA concept was brought to life in 2008 by two highly qualified and experienced web services professionals who had a different idea about how small business websites should be developed. With over a decade of experience in providing online marketing solutions, website design and development planning, Azhar Siddiqui and Adam Ostopowich noticed a big gap in the web services offered to small businesses. AGUA filled this gap by providing affordable and handcrafted website solutions and powerful online marketing services to small businesses and entrepreneurs. Azhar’s Computer Science Degree and Adam’s Major in Entrepreneurship perfectly positioned the team to refine many of the antiquated processes in an effort to help clients manage their website projects while minimizing costs. The result has been that AGUA has continued to build and maintain long term relationships with its clients.

Top 5 Questions Our Clients Want to Know About us!
Why should I work with your company?
AFirst and foremost, we are focused on the needs of our clients. The only time we place importance on maximizing profits or generating revenue is when we are doing it for your business. We offer flat rate packages, so no matter how long it takes to complete a project, you will always pay the same flat rate. We offer scalable websites and marketing campaigns that grow with your business.
What does the process look like for your services?
No matter what service you opt to use, you will have direct contact with your salesperson, who becomes your project manager. We like to hold our managers accountable for your satisfaction, and find that our clients are more comfortable knowing whom they can contact. The process for all our services is simple and keeps you in control from beginning to end. You start with an online questionnaire about your business needs, and we get to work on your project immediately. Communication with our clients is key to our process, as is receiving your feedback.
What if I don’t like the designs that you come up with?
You can easily communicate one on one with your project manager, who will be open to receiving your feedback at any stage of the process. We are committed to your satisfaction, and won’t stop working until you get exactly what you want. No matter how long it takes, you will never be charged for anything extra.
Why do I need to market online?
Advertising on the internet is not only one of the most affordable marketing solutions available, it’s also one of the best ways to increase your visibility in an increasingly competitive market. Traditional advertising methods are expensive and often ineffective, and it’s time to cash in on the millions of users surfing the web every day. Online marketing is traceable, scalable, and targetable, which ensures you are reaching the right people for the right amount of money.
Are you a full service web agency?
Yes! Anything and everything that our clients need online, we are happy to service. From the very beginning, we will help your business develop a quality logo design and determine a brand, and we will walk you through each stage until you are your own version of an online mogul. We strive to simplify the world of online business for our clients, and allows them to defer to only one company.
