Julie Patton

Julie Patton

Certified Multi-Media Producer & New Media Designer

To Paradigmmedia founder and owner Julie Patton, it is astounding that just under half of Canadian small businesses have a website. Meanwhile, in late 2019, some 28 million Canadians made online purchases valued at close to $1.85 billion Canadian dollars.

“Those are a lot of eCommerce sales that Canadian businesses aren’t tapping into,” she says. “We began as a small business 25 years ago, so I am particularly sensitive to their needs and understand what it takes to succeed in this digital world.”

Julie is a certified multi-media producer and new media designer with years of experience in web design and digital marketing. Under her leadership, Paradigmmedia has built and continues to upgrade websites for many clients in  a wide range of businesses and industries, including legal, finance and insurance, health and fitness and interior design, as well as organizations with more than 500 employees. 

A strategic approach

Julie takes a strategic approach to each assignment, focusing on in-depth research, brainstorming strategies and customization. Not only does she creatively direct the look and tone of the site, she supervises staff and production teams to ensure projects are completed on time, within budget and to your specifications.

“When you work with Paradigmmedia, my network of industry specialists will create a website that attracts more sales prospects for your products and services,” she adds.  Her team also provides ongoing digital marketing support, search engine optimization, captivating blogs and advertisement updates for her clients’ companies. 

Tremendously successful

The company provides easy to use navigation, relevant and useful content and eCommerce aimed at boosting your conversion rate: That is the rate at which visitors click and take action on your website. “The higher the rate, the more successful the website,” explains Julie. “And we’ve enjoyed a tremendous amount of success in this area.”

As a result, Paradigmmedia enjoys longstanding relationships with its clients. And that’s not bad in the web development world – ‘the wild west’ – as Julie puts it.
