Who are we now

Based out of Athens Georgia, a business student at the University of Georgia decided to bring the advantages of the digital world to local businesses.

Samuel 17 was founded to help small businesses tackle the daunting Goliath of web development & social media marketing.

The power of Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, &  Twitter has still not been utilized by a large majority of locally owned businesses & we’re here to conquer social media for small business in America.

Dedicated to help you grow your small business, our account managers & sales reps are happy to work with you and your business.
