Connecting Cultures, Crafting Digital Solutions

From YouTube to Digital Marketing

How Eikaiwa Sites Started

Eikaiwa Sites is an extension of Ad Ronin, a Canadian digital marketing agency, deeply rooted in the educational and digital world since 2014. It all started with Steven Clancy and Kevin Fabris creating the Easy ESL Games YouTube channel. Their journey of sharing educational content led to a vibrant community with millions of views. This experience was a stepping stone to Ad Ronin, where our passion for digital creativity and education continues to grow.

Our Story

    2014

    Our journey began with "Easy ESL Games" on YouTube, creating fun and educational content for kids. We released two popular children's song albums and organically garnered over 6 million views.

    Little Sheep English

    In the same year, Steve opened "Little Sheep English" Eikaiwa in his house in Kobe, Japan. The school has since relocated to nearby Akashi having outgrown the space.

  • 2016-2024

    Digital Marketing Shift

    Recognizing the transferable skills developed through our creative projects, we transitioned to "Ad Ronin," a digital marketing agency based in Canada, serving North American clients. Starting with video ads, we quickly learned the importance of a holistic approach, expanding our services to include website design, landing pages, and social media management.

    Growth and Success

    As our expertise and reputation grew, so did our team. Today, we consistently produce dozens of video ads and new websites each month. Our dedication has translated into over 50 successful websites built, exceeding $5 million in client ad spend that's generated a remarkable $75 million+ in return.

  • 2023

    Japan Expansion (2023)

    Recognizing the need for improved digital presence among Eikaiwas, we embarked on a Japan branch in 2023. Through rigorous beta testing, we've honed our understanding of Japanese marketing language and best practices, combining them with our established Western expertise to deliver exceptional results.
