Trend Setter

Our Trend Setter Package is unique in that it offers even the smallest businesses the marketing power of a much larger business. We do this by combining all of our services into one low cost monthly package, which ensures your Internet properties are updated regularly every month.

Think of it this way; You open a business and want some customers. So, you put out a sign. Then, you want some more business. So, you put out a sign down the street, then two streets over, then out on the freeway, and pretty soon you have them all over town. People now know about you even if they have never been in your store or used your services.

This is exactly what we do for you via the Internet. Beginning with a website, we add a blog, a monthly (or more often for some businesses) email newsletter, social networking in Facebook, Twitter, Linked-in. Next we add a YouTube channel and video is included. We help you get found. Last is our own consulting to help you get the best of our services and more.

We do this in a systematic way, which allows us to keep the cost low. Now, virtually every business can afford to look like a much larger business.

Each business is different. Give us a call to talk about your specific business. We will let you know how little it takes to get started right away.

A Plan Is Not a Strategy


A comprehensive plan—with goals, initiatives, and budgets–is comforting. But starting with a plan is a terrible way to make strategy. Roger Martin, former dean of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto and one of the world’s leading thinkers on strategy, says developing strategy means going outside an organization’s comfort zone and escaping the common traps of strategic planning.

Our Team

There are currently six people on our team. Three bloggers, two graphic designers, and then Ryan and Terry. Because Ryan and Terry interact with clients and prospects, we are listed here. Everyone else enjoys their anonymity, but rest assured that there are people getting the work done in a timely and professional manner. All of these team members have been with us for quite some time, and Ryan and Terry appreciate that stability. Yes, absolutely! You will too!

Our goal is very simple: Help you grow your business. Everything that we do is aimed at helping you grow your business, from our Internet tools and packages, to consulting services, to sales management. We didn’t get into this business to sell websites. We got into it from our business background to help people grow their business, and the Internet is such a valuable tool in helping to achieve that. And, we’ve done it inexpensive enough that any business can afford it–and thrive with it.

Being effective on the Internet is much more than just having a website, so we help you by not only having an effective website, but put signs all over the Internet directing people to your business enterprises. We do this through the use of various Internet properties, all in concert toward growing your Internet presence and expanding your businesses influence and success.

It is our sales management experience that helps drive our focus on improving your bottom line. Between Terry and Ryan, we have over 50 years of sales and sales management experience in a variety of fields. This experience is invaluable in helping small businesses increase their marketing and sales effectiveness and profitability.

How to Achieve Your Most Ambitious Goals | Stephen Duneier | TEDxTucson


How you define Stephen Duneier depends on how you came to know him.

In his talk, Stephen explains that what truly defines him aren't titles, but an approach to decision making that transformed him from someone who struggled with simple tasks to a guy who is continuously achieving even his most ambitious dreams.
