Why One Thing Marketing
“Before starting One Thing Marketing I was the co-owner of a custom picture framing company. Like most who are not in the online marketing industry I really didn’t know a whole lot about websites or online marketing. So I had to trust that the companies I hired would lead me in the right direction.
My company worked with several different web design companies and overall my experiences were that they took advantage of my lack of knowledge, didn’t follow through on what they had promised, and made it a hassle to get even small updates made to our site.
So I started learning a little about web design so I could make the changes myself and that led to learning more about how online marketing worked.
Once I got more into online marketing as a whole and had some success with my own web properties, I realized how powerful it could be for a small business – and decided rather than just using what I’d learned to help myself – I wanted to use it to help other business owners.
I wanted to protect small business owners from being taken advantage of or being ripped off – because I had once been in their shoes.”

We Understand Small Business
One Thing Marketing is a small business too and we understand how hard it is for a new business to get their name out there and get your new company off the ground.
We understand the demands and pressures that small business owners face. How it can feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day and struggling to make time for marketing.
We understand the difficulty of trying to determine which marketing strategies (especially online) are going to provide the most return. You obviously want to spend your money on the types of marketing or advertising that will bring in the most customers. But how do you know which ones to choose?
We’ve been in your shoes and know how it feels to spend your advertising dollars on something your convinced will attract lots of new customers, only to be disappointed and frustrated when the results are far less than you expected. Because of this, many companies end up just randomly throwing money at different strategies, from print ads, direct mail, phone books, radio, etc., trying to find something that will work for them.
We want to help relieve some of that burden by providing marketing advice you can trust along with affordable, customized solutions proven to attract new customers and provide the best return for your investment.
Because you started your business because you’re good at what you do; you didn’t start your business to become a marketing expert.

Every business has challenges and needs that are completely unique. Many ad agencies and marketing companies try to fit you into their products or solutions.

We listen first, take notes, and then we talk. We want to learn your business’s goals, assess your current marketing efforts, and finding out more about how your business works to help identify not only needs for improvement, but areas of opportunity as well.
