My name is Tina, and I’ve been an advertising and marketing professional since before the internet was around. I started in advertising with a local coupon magazine for small businesses, and walked alongside many business owners through the 2008 crash. My heart went out to people who had become friends as I watched many of their businesses close.
This turn in the economy turned my focus to the importance of business Internet presence with a website that ranks highly in Search and compels visitors to engage with it. I went to work for a national online marketing company, learning about websites, search engine optimization (SEO) strategies, and search engine marketing (SEM) with paid search ads (PPC or pay-per-click). I was excited to help business owners experience what online marketing could do for them, and was hopeful the Internet marketing company I chose to align myself with could do that for them. Unfortunately, however, I didn’t see my clients get the results they needed, and decided I could no longer work for that company.
I’m thankful I was introduced to Ignite Local and its great team of people who really care, really know what they’re doing, and really don’t charge the lofty fees others do. The heart and pulse of our team is to help local business owners get the very best results from their online marketing to help them reach their business goals. As a Google Partner, Ignite Local stays on the cutting edge of website design and Internet marketing, providing our clients with only the most effective strategies deployed in a cost-effective way. We’re so confident in what we do that we have NO CONTRACTS, working with every client on a month-to-month basis as it should be.
I really value my relationships with my clients, meeting with them every month to make sure we’re providing great leads and the best results possible. When I’m not working, I enjoy being outdoors, walking my dog, hiking, and working out. I love cooking or grilling up a good meal for my family, especially when we get to eat outside on the patio in the sunshine. I’ve played the keyboard on the worship team of our church for years, and I try to always look for ways to be kind and encouraging to others,
Every business owner is important to our community, and each has his/her own story. If you need a little help bringing more business into your business, I’d love to meet you and hear about your company. Let’s see what great things we can accomplish together for your business!
