"I was just trying to solve a frustration.” - John Jantsch, Founder

Duct Tape Marketing was born because we know how frustrating it is to buy marketing services as a small business owner. We knew there had to be a better way. This led to the Duct Tape Marketing System. We turned marketing into a system that starts, first and foremost, with a solid strategy and revolutionized the world of small business marketing.
