[Marketing Strategy and Consulting for Churches, Nonprofits, and Community Orgs]

Full Online Marketing Strategy:

Everything from search and Discovery optimization (SEO + Paid Search + Social Media) to branding strategies and identity creation to a logo, slogans, and identity revisions… I’ve helped many companies, groups, and non-profits navigate the digital landscape to give doable results.

Strategic Planning for Nonprofits and Churches:

I work with nonprofits and churches of all sizes to help them with the planning and implementation stages of the strategic planning process. I have developed a complete method and series of guide resources to make sure that strategic planning will be efficient and beneficial for organizations from beginning to end.

Website Design, Creation, and Hosting:

I’ve designed, built, and hosted websites for hundreds of clients over the past decade and have the know-how to build and scale an attractive, affordable, and great looking contemporary website. Every website build is unique and matches the client’s needs and not being built from a template.

Google AdWords and Paid Search:

AdWords is Google’s paid advertising program allowing business, groups, non-profits, and others the ability to specifically target people doing searches on any keyword imaginable. I have 20 years of experience helping companies and groups of all sizes work within their unique budgets and set goals to get the most out of AdWords possible!

Branding and Identity Creation:

From Fortune 100 companies to neighborhood organizations, I’ve assembled a varied portfolio of successful brand and logo creations and revisions. If you’re feeling like your current logo or identity isn’t where it should be, get in touch.

Search Engine Optimization:

Not getting the amount of traffic you were hoping from Google searches? I can help you with search engine optimization of your existing site (or new) website in order to get more traffic with years of experience on our in-house team as well as the know-how to get things done.
