Marketing can feel overwhelming. There’s a lot to get done on a limited budget, with not enough time and fewer resources. In an age of information overload and ever-increasing channels, tools and technologies, it’s easy to get lost and frustrated.

I started Artessa Marketing because I don’t think telling your brand story and sharing your products and services should be so hard or complicated. Sales and marketing can be powerful, scalable and sustainable.

We know that, for small to mid-sized business owners, every dollar counts. Which is why we believe that your business deserves bigger thinking and a simple, straightforward plan that gets predictable results every time. Artessa Marketing creates marketing systems — not just tactics — tailored for your audience and offering, so you talk to the right people, get more leads and win more customers.

I’ve worked with hundreds of businesses in diverse industries, such as logistics, energy, non-profit, construction, manufacturing, food, agriculture, healthcare and real estate. That experience means we quickly understand your business to deliver solutions that resonate with ideal prospects and customers.

Think of us as an extension of your company. Build a brand. Drive leads and growth. Connect with your ideal customers.

We are More than just a Marketing Agency!

Many marketing agencies develop strategy and creative designs, but then outsource the production to other vendors, adding on big mark-ups. At PRO2 Marketing, we provide consultation and design services, but we also can produce, mail, install and warehouse based on the project.

Over the past decade we have consistently grown our digital marketing capabilities, so we can offer traditional & digital solutions for our clients, providing consistency and better economics.

Lots of marketers build marketing plans based on tactics like search engine optimization, social media push, email and many others. They recommend the newest marketing trend of the day. This leaves their clients discouraged and doesn’t get results. Together we begin by building an in-depth strategy. This strategy is all about understanding your market, being able to articulate your unique difference and measuring the results of your efforts. It’s all about making sure that your ideal target client gets to Know, Like and Trust you. From there the goal is to get them to Try and Buy from you and then move to Repeat buys and Referrals. This strategy is about growing your business over time.

Without going through this, your marketing will not work!

We provide marketing services for kitchen designers and design-build remodelers. Kitchen cabinets are sold through numerous channels: independent designers with or without showrooms, home centers, hardware stores, online sellers, local manufacturers selling direct, in some markets built on site cabinets are back (not RTA), remodelers, and lumber yards with kitchen cabinet departments. The many brands/quality levels of cabinets and ways to buy them makes for a situation that is very confusing to consumers. To be a successful kitchen designer you need to remove that confusion and attract your ideal customer. Yes, I said attract. Referrals aren’t enough. Although, your referral customers do help us describe your ideal customer. After we “know” your ideal customer (strategy) we build on your reputation and use marketing tactics that attract your ideal client. Our marketing system then gets you that customer over and over again. Our marketing services are packaged especially for kitchen and bath designers and remodelers. We have addressed the cost issue with powerful low-cost ways to improve your position in local search. Our unique before/after case study approach is used to as content to build your online presence, offline to get more referrals, and on social media.
