One of the questions we are asked most frequently is what do the numbers “981” mean in our company name? I will give you our thought process in choosing the name “981 Media.”
First, let’s look at the number “981.” While some people see it right away, other people miss the fact that the square root of 81 is 9. Our initial purpose in using this combination of the prime and square root of a number was to show synergy and maximized outcomes.
Then we wanted numbers that had symbolic meanings as individual digits. China’s “I-Ching” provided our inspiration.
The meaning of the number “9” is completion and fulfillment. By choosing this number we wanted to emphasize that our company always meets deadlines.
The meaning of the number “8” is abundance and power. By choosing this number we wanted to highlight to our clients that the tools we create for them will provide abundance and give them the power to be successful online.
The meaning of the number “1” is confidence, originality and creativity. By choosing this number we wanted our clients to feel confident that the original and creative tools we provide to them will make decidedly positive contributions to their success.
While we offer several services such as video production, website design, search engine optimization, mobile app design and corporate photography, we decided to use the term “media” because no matter what kind of service we perform when it is finished it relates to media.
The main message we want to send with our company name is this: If we put this much thought into a company name, imagine how much thought we will put into your projects when you work with us.
