Meet Jason Eland

What do I do? I specialize in human beings, marketing, SEO, business evaluation/ development, and process improvement. I have a Masters in psychology and worked in corporate business making process improvements and handling executive-level public relations complaints. Being a small business owner myself, I understand the difficulties associated with it and the bottom line. I have over 10 years of bringing process improvements, market strategy, and search optimization to the table. I have worked with a wide range of people from programmers to musicians.

Meet Beth Riegger

I started my career in business at the ripe old age of 10 when my parents bought a hardware store in Northern MN. I have taken that work-ethic throughout my career and applied it to every client. I believe in helping my clients find the right information, tools, and tactics, to help them make the most out of their budget and get the best return. I take the marketing perspective from a sales point of view. How can we get potential clients to say yes? How can we get them to convert into clients? I love helping businesses through this process and then implementing it.

We are A Holistic Digital Marketing Agency

We were formerly based out of Eden Prairie, and Minneapolis, Minnesota.  We now have our headquarters in Golden Valley, MN. We specialize in a holistic approach to marketing: search engine optimization (SEO), marketing, customer experience, retention, conversion optimization, strategic market planning, business marketing consulting, process improvement, public relations / online reputation management, web development,  website security fixes, as well as traditional advertising such as billboard advertising, print advertising and radio advertising.

The best way to increase profit is to maximize efficiency. One Fortune 500 company was losing 54 million per year due to an overlooked process gap. Another process resulted in an increase in the average yearly revenue of 4.5 million.

Some of the biggest returns are from smaller businesses who see improvements in their marketing bottom line.

Depending on the needs of the project we have consultants who come from different backgrounds to provide exceptional value and long-term returns.

Boa

Photographer

Having a driving passion to capture absolute spectacular photos wherever she goes. Many people might say “take a mental photo” just as her husband would say, but at times, that’s just not good enough! Memories captured, developed, and have a physical form, such as a photo that can endure for decades. People are able to store these photos away, then come back to remember all the good memories that they’ve once made.  It takes us all back to that one time, that one place, and get the ‘feels’ all over again. Photos tell a story and so should yours.
