The couple moved back to Oklahoma in 2008.
“For a few years I just kept subcontracting with agencies,” Baisden said.
Baisden also noticed that many businesses were not online in Oklahoma and had not fully explored what the internet can do for businesses. Having enjoyed working with customers, he wanted to return to the interaction and the strategy of marketing businesses.
“The chance to work with business owners directly again was pretty appealing,” he said.
Cloud Agency was born in 2012, but most of that first year has been spent in planning.
“We’re basically still launching,” he said. “At this point I’m just beginning to market it and get the word out.”
Cloud Web Team, the subcontractor, was located first in Oklahoma City and then for two years in Moore before settling in Norman.
Baisden and his wife moved to Norman to be closer to an acreage they have southeast of town. Oklahoma offers the land that Baisden and his wife want for their children growing up, while Norman offers the talent — developers and designers interested in developing and copywriting the things needed for clients. Talent is available through remote employees but that’s not Baisden’s first choice.
“If I can get that talent right out of college or even as interns while they’re still in college, I prefer that,” he said.
