A Note From Kristin

I get up every day thinking how we can help our clients sell more. That’s what I live for. It’s all-consuming. Any of our clients will tell you – clients I’ve worked with for decades – that their success really matters to me, on a personal level.

I love business owners; people who have risked it all, have built great companies, and are now struggling with the new mobile- and Google-driven marketing environment we are working in. It’s a new world, one with its own rules and structure. It’s not impossible, it’s just different. It can be mastered.

I love marketers who are working their tails off and who appreciate reliable and dedicated help.

I love customers – people who are trying to solve a problem or meet a need, and who are very frustrated about all of the ways that sellers make it difficult to buy. Ironically, people want to buy stuff. It’s the sellers who get in the way.

We know, as buyers, what we want. As sellers, we think we know what customers want. But we are often mistaken – and that is the single largest problem with marketing today, one that we are determined to solve, one company at a time.
