This Is Our “Why,”
Lets Talk About Yours
Imagine all of your marketing needs taken care of:
From web design to logo design, from social media to strategy, from advertising to content production – nothing is left out of focus. Now imagine that this service is affordable, so affordable, in fact, that there is a custom-tailored plan for ANY budget.
How much time would you save? How much more could you get done? How much easier would your life be?
Can you imagine that? We did.
And that was the beginning of Imagine Design & Marketing.
Imagine Design & Marketing began in March 2020 as MarketAdviser, a small business marketing team dedicated to growing your business and maximizing your return on investment. In the beginning, our CEO & Director, Jon, was a one-man marketing team and we focused primarily on web design and branding. As time went on, it became clear that there was a need in our community for a full-service marketing solution that actually works.
So, we evolved and expanded.
In October 2020 we rebranded, recalibrated, and clarified our mission: to serve the small business community by providing creative marketing solutions that actually work. We are on a God-given mission to help the small business community grow, succeed, and build your dreams.
Because we believe in the American Dream. When you succeed, we succeed together.
Integrity Above All
Give Your Best
Keep It Simple
Creativity Is Key
Imagine Design & Marketing helps small businesses by providing creative marketing solutions that actually work. We believe in paying blessings forward, so we always go above and beyond to give you more than what you asked for.
We are on a God-given mission to serve and we couldn't be more excited to help you. As we succeed, we strive to give back to the community more than we receive.
We Are Honest
Marketing can have a bad reputation because of shady characters and half-true campaigns. We are not those people. We value honesty and integrity over everything, and we know that your audience feels the same way.
We Are Affordable
We don’t believe in “you can’t afford us.” Our mission is to serve the small business community, so we make it a point that we can work with ANY budget, no matter how big or small. After all, even $1 invested will help you more than $1 kept in your pocket.
It is your story, after all. We want to know what your business means to you, what your brand represents, and why you do what you do. Your story is the most important piece in the marketing puzzle, so we listen. Then we take the pieces and create a beautiful picture to show the world.
We Work Hard
If there are two things Wisconsin is known for, they are great cheese and a blue-collar work ethic. Nothing is handed to you in our neck of the woods. If you want something, you work for it, and we bring that same energy to every project we work on. No shortcuts, no half-efforts. You get our best on every project.
We Are Local
We have small-town values and big-time abilities. Being local means that we are accessible and available for everything you need. It also means that when you succeed, we succeed together. And when we succeed together, we make our community stronger, better, and more secure. That’s a win-win.
We Make It Personal
Every business is different. As a result, every marketing strategy should be different, too. We don’t believe in “cookie cutter” solutions. We tailor a unique plan that fits your needs and – importantly – your budget. We are more than just a helping help, we are your partners in success and we take it personally.
We Keep You Engaged
We keep you in the loop. As we manage and grow your brand presence, we want you to know exactly what we are doing and how it is helping your business. We make every effort to work to your schedule, listen to your point of view. We keep you involved without keeping you busy.
Building a business is more than just providing a great service. What happens to your business if no one knows it exists? It doesn't grow. That is why marketing is an essential part of any business plan.
Marketing is best thought of as storytelling. Why? Because people forget facts and details, but we remember a compelling story.
Many companies sell the features and benefits of their products. After all, it is natural to think that the better product should always win, however this is not the case. Remember: the “Pet Rock” sold over a million units.
What motivates people to buy your products over the products of your competitor is your story:
who you are, where you've been, and what you want to accomplish.
Behind the “what” you do is a “why” that is even more important. As Simon Sinek famously said, “People don't buy what you do; they buy why you do it.” Your “why” is your story, and everyone loves a good story. In 2020 it has never been easier to find a platform for your story, yet it has never been harder to make sure that your voice is heard.
Yes, everyone is connected online but that makes it difficult to stand out from the crowd. As a business owner, you're busy. How do you make your business stand out? Where do you begin? Who has the time and energy to do it all?
That’s where we come in. Our job is to tell your story, develop your brand, and help you grow.
We combine creative ideas with careful, data-driven strategy to optimize your reach and maximize your return on investment. How do we do this? I’m glad you asked.
Like any great relationship, we begin by listening and getting to know you. What do you do? Why do you do it? What do you hope to achieve? What makes you unique? These questions form the most basic building blocks of your story.
Next, we organize the chapters of your story into a marketing strategy that fits your business and your budget (Yes, we work with ANY budget). Every business is different; what works for someone else may not work for you. That is why our individualized approach is so important to your success. This is your story, not someone else’s.
Finally, we use our creative marketing expertise to tell your story to the world. As we execute your marketing plan, we track and analyze the results to inform our decisions and measure your success. We focus on every detail, so you can focus on your business and your customers. Watch your brand presence grow while you keep doing what you do best.
It takes a purpose, a plan, and hard work, but the American Dream is a reality.
