About Us

MarketingCycle provides the level of marketing expertise big businesses thrive on—but at a price small businesses can afford.


Let’s face it–there’s no point in offering an excellent service or product if customers don’t know about it. Unfortunately, most small businesses can’t afford an in-house marketing department, so too-often marketing is done on an ad hoc basis by people whose talents lay elsewhere–the owner, the salesperson, the bookkeeper, and whatever friends and family members they can draft to the cause. We understand and we want to take you beyond, “your cousin who’s great with PhotoShop.” Nothing against your cousin, but your business deserves better.


MarketingCycle will provide you with all the services you need—and the quality you demand—while fitting into your budget. It’s the marketing department you’ve dreamed of, with experienced web developers, graphic designers, writers and event planners, but without the hefty payroll. We’ll even direct you to the many online tools and resources available, help you build branded templates and teach you to use them effectively so that, if you choose, you can do much of the work in-house.


Nothing would make us happier than to one day hear you say you no longer need us, that you’ve grown so big you require an in-house marketing team. We’ll even consult with you on forming that team. Your success is how we measure our success. And as you prepare to ride off on your own, we will celebrate with you.

I’ve always found Terri to be creative, high energy, action oriented, professional, fun to work with and willing to do whatever is takes to make a marketing activity successful. In the end, Terri is willing to roll up her sleeves and invest the extra personal effort that’s needed to transform a marketing activity into a successful event or campaign that results in increased awareness and business.
