Deedra Hughes founded Hughes Media in 2000 as a media buying and advertising agency. Her clients included both national and local companies like Pulte Homes and Budget Rental Car. After two years market demands required Hughes Media to begin offering website development, Google Adwords and banner ads services. Hughes was an early adaptor to internet ad buying (pay-per-click), leading her to build a full-service digital agency. Today, Deedra directs a digital team of internet marketers and website programmers. Under her leadership, Hughes Media manages over 800 domains and websites worldwide.
As a digital business consultant, Deedra advises various CEOs and presidents on their companies’ branding and position on the internet. These services have included analyzing website traffic, reviewing all digital touch points, and finding additional revenue streams. Internet consulting services has been an adjunct to Deedra’s expertise for the past ten years.
