Charles Barriner


My company Midas Media, mainly designs websites. We also design logos, graphics, clothing and edit video. Lately we've been doing alot of social media account setups and soon we'll be offering social media promo, photography and videography.

What inspired you to start your own business?
I’ve been drawing all my life and web design was just a natural transition. So after going to college and gaining the know how, it’s basically a dream of mine to make a career out of something I live doing.

What value did you get from BACD?
I learned alot about running a business and the necessary steps to take to run it correctly.

Tell us about your business growth
We have one location and only me and my business partner, who lives in Quebec. In the future we’re looking to add a full time social media manager.

What marketing strategies have you found worked for your business?
Video promos and Instagram reels are really good. Business cards, flyers, word of mouth and in person conversations are still also great strategies.

What advice would you give someone who is thinking about starting a business?
I would tell them to choose something they love and turn it into a business. You can’t lose that way.
