Improve Your Business
Why Choose Us?
You have 3 seconds to make an impression. We offer Graphic Design, Web Design, Web Programming, Marketing and business consulting all in one. We can help you to attract the clients you want and get the results you desire.
We are a husband and wife team based in the Lake Tahoe area. We are enthusiastic about helping people improve their lives and go after their business dreams. We are excited about your business goals and how we can create branding, marketing, logo and a website to help your business improve.
Generally, how we work is that we first help clients create a logo and branding. From there, we help them with their messaging and with some basic print marketing collateral, such as business cards, postcards, brochures and more. Once that is done, we usually start discussing a marketing plan with goals and objectives for the year. From there, we move into creating a website that fulfills the needs of their business and represents your business on the internet. We integrate several search engine optimization and marketing objectives into the website. We can also add lead capture systems, eCommerce, registration options, calendars and more.
After that foundation is built, we can help them develop a diverse web presence, including creating a comprehensive profile on many social networking sites. We can also help clients with a monthly marketing plan to help them run it all, including creating ads for magazine, posting on their Facebook Fan Page, creating mailers for new products, writing press releases and submitting to newspapers, and much more.
Of course, we are always happy to help with any individual specific aspect you need assistance with.
For most projects, Rob and Sara do 100% of the work. For larger projects, we sometimes also work with some incredible programmers, search engine optimization gurus, content writers, photographers, and editors in the US West Coast region.
Throughout the life of the project we wear many hats, including:
- project manager

- graphic designer
- html/css programmer
- UI/UX designer
- content editor
