What Potential and New Clients Say, What We Say


Can you relate to any of these statements?

“I don’t have a marketing plan.”

“I can’t afford to hire a full-time marketing person (or department).”

“I had my cousin (relative, friend-of-a-friend) design my website, but no one goes there.”

“I had my aunt’s friend’s nephew design my website, and it got hacked—or now he’s AWOL—or the site won’t work anymore—or it won’t show up on Google.”

 “I don’t have time to work on marketing my business.”

“I’ve tried social media, but it didn’t really help my business.”

“I’m on all the social media channels, but I just can’t keep up.”

“I’ll just use Chat GPT AI or Bard to write my content for me.”

As marketing consultants, here’s what we say:

“We’ll develop successful marketing strategies and marketing plans for you.”

“You can’t afford NOT to market your business.”

“We provide valuable marketing services that help generate business, so you can get a return on your investment.”

“We design websites that tell your brand story and get relevant traffic.”

 “We’ll focus on your marketing, so you can focus on running your business.”

“Social media may be the ‘shiny object’ of marketing but it’s not necessarily the most powerful tactic; it may or may not be right for your business.”

“Powerful, high-quality content that tells your story is more powerful than spam generated by AI.”

Working with Nancy the last few months has been a pleasure.”

Chris Strzalka, My 3D Mini Me

Engaging Content

“I always appreciate Nancy’s willingness to dig into a topic, take the time to gain a full appreciation of the issues, and then create engaging content. Nancy was an integral part of our brand consultancy and clients highly valued her contributions.”

Mark Stinson, Stinson Brand Innovations

Created a Unique Brand Identity

“Nancy helped me to articulate my consultancy’s brand messaging, value and unique identity. She evolved my brand identity with a new, distinctive logo and tagline. My stationery, business cards and templates now reflect my brand value. For my website, she outlined my site architecture, chose imagery, wrote the content, and optimized the site. I now feel proud to showcase my brand and my company’s value to the healthcare marketplace. I obtained “downtown” agency quality without extravagant agency fees.”

Nancy Hedlund, MedNavigate

Katie Sleigh, Sleigh Family Chiropractic

Enthusiastic & Creative

“Nancy has a unique balance of all the qualities you would look for in a marketer. She’s not only enthusiastic and creative, but knowledgeable about her industry and determined to help you get your project finished on a deadline. Nancy helped me created a direct mail project for an independent senior living facility in our area. She developed the overall plan and led me though step-by-step to make our idea a reality. She really listened to the message I was trying to portray and was able to create content for my mailer in the best version of “my voice” possible. In marketing it’s rare to find someone who can balance the old with the new (e.g. direct mail and digital). Nancy really does it all and you won’t be disappointed!”

Daniellah Salario, Assisting Hands
