Open Sesame Inc. is a creative digital marketing agency that is passionate connecting (open doors) entrepreneurs to opportunities (plant seeds) to help them build, grow and scale their digital brand! Our passion stems from taking our clients’ pain points and turning them into opportunities via web and mobile presence for their customers. Open Sesame Inc. was founded in 2008, incorporated in 2009 and serve clients in the U.S. and Europe with offices in Washington D.C. and Austin, TX.
In 2008, Arvin Poole started Open Sesame with $50. He had a simple vision – to “open doors and plant seeds” for first-time entrepreneurs. After 2 days of research that created over 50 different ideas for a business name, a light build came on and the name “Open Sesame” was the perfect fit for his vision. Also in that same month, the new domain – .me (Montenegro) – was born. The domain, opensesa.me, was available and it had a price tag of $50. Thank you Lord! 🙏🏾
Fast forward to today, Open Sesame Inc. has grown and transformed from an early stage startup consulting to a SaaS platform and now a full service digital agency that has stayed true to the vision of connecting (open doors) entrepreneurs to opportunities (plant seeds) to help them build, grow and scale their digital brand.
Arvin Poole, founder and managing director, is an entrepreneur, marketing tech expert, public speaker and author with a craving passion for creating customer-centric digital solutions that drives revenue for his clients. Arvin has founded and managed B2B/B2C businesses across software, healthcare, education, consumer goods and non-profit.
In addition to Arvin’s full time focus in digital marketing, he is a digital marketing instructor at University of Texas in Austin; serves on the Boards for Day With Daddy, a Texas nonprofit advocacy for single and divorced fathers; Quantum Reach, a technology consultancy focusing on startup growth; and the Austin Alumni Chapter of University of Alabama.
