Stephanie joined us in May of 2023. She spent the last 25 years serving small businesses in Colorado and New Mexico, supporting them in their sales, management, and customer retention efforts as well as in the pursuit of more business.
She was intimately involved in the growth and success of several businesses and is keenly aware of the needs a business experiences at each stage of growth.
Stephanie said, “March of 2004 was where my journey began. I completed my first website build and expected magic to happen as soon as it went live … Wrong. I quickly learned that there was A LOT MORE TO THE INTERNET than just having a website – it needs to get SEEN! So I started diving into Search Engine Optimization. That was a long, complex journey but one worth taking for sure! SEO works; however, it is just SLOW… so I challenged myself to learn a speedier method of getting customers and found Google Ads to be the answer.
In 2015, my natural drive to learn and apply new concepts brought me into contact with two internet marketing moguls who lead what I call “the most powerful Digital Underground Marketing Network” in the world. My direct connection with them, their systems, training, and mentoring have turned me into an internet marketing ENGINEER. The skills, systems, and strategies I have learned and applied over the past few years have consistently produced results that can only be called DELIBERATE.
I enjoy implementing this powerful work to promote businesses who are hoping to grow and reach more potential customers with their products & services.
