When it comes to advertising your business they are experts in the field. Both Heidi and Kent hold knowledge of what is currently working for local businesses and the unique markets they serve.
Heidi offers free advice to local businesses needing facts on various forms of ad investments and web presence. Online & offline she assists with Google PPC, Facebook Ads, Google My Business Profiles, Facebook Fan Page set up, listing your business in the top search engines and data aggregators, directory print advertising, yellow page audits of your ad program with YP or other directory companies (to determine if you're loosing or gaining from the program), recommendations of what directories to be in (not a type error, directory advertising is still paying off in 2016, regardless of what you've heard, she can show you proof), building mobile optimized websites, SEO, as well as citations and mentions of your business across the internet. Heidi's goal is to help small businesses succeed at being found, while promoting a company's vision in an affordable and meaningful way. Her clients are testaments to her honesty, trustworthiness and genuine care for the success of each business she helps. Her name is her virtue.
In addition to her marketing expertise Heidi has strong organizational skills and is multi-artistically talented. She has been interested in art since the age of 5, became a dancer at age 8 and continued with formal training through High School. In the mid 70's Heidi tried out for and was voted into membership of Spokane Washington's elite, all city, talent club "Dasidrian", which was formed in the Roaring 20's. Heidi has danced for local civic and philanthropic groups, in repertory theater and on television. She majored in Commercial Art in college and draws her energy from the creative process. Her pen & ink art has been featured in national magazines and a design she created for a nearby city won a civic award. She's done window display and window painting, owned a graphic business which designed logos, two for local non profits, created print products and a local direct mail publication featuring offers from businesses throughout Whatcom County. The books were published every six weeks for over four years, at which time she sold the business. Soon after, she was hired as an account rep. for "The Plaid Book", selling directory advertising to small and large businesses alike in North Snohomish, Skagit, Island, San Juan and Whatcom Counties. Business owners in these communities know and love her for the hours of genuine help and knowledge she's given them.
She's creative! Heidi loves creating from all mediums. While holding the "Cultural Arts & Crafts Director" position at The Boy's & Girl's Club of Whatcom County she designed and built elaborate props for the first ever, public haunted houses in Bellingham WA. Heidi did set design for haunted house TV commercials for KVOS TV, who then requested her set design talents for a Vancouver BC attorney commercial. She designed and built elaborate props for the Whatcom County Humane Society Gala Auction (a giant dog house for the auctioneer to stand in, plus other elaborate, animal related props). She built two award winning "Ski to Sea" parade floats, one most difficult adorned with a giant 7 foot animated whale that spouted water from it's blow hole as it traveled down the street. Kent is her greatest champion and says of Heidi "I married her for her blunt honesty. I'm very proud of the work she does, and believe there's nothing that she can't create or build".
