President of Marcus and Company Strategic Communications LLC, I help clients create effective online marketing programs, including integrating email and social media marketing with their websites, to help them grow their business or nonprofit.
I started using email marketing for my own consulting business in 2003 and liked it so much I became a Constant Contact Solution Provider in 2006 and a Robly Authorized Partner in 2017. I have been a Constant Contact All Star 8 times between 2009 and 2018.

I have presented to thousands of business owners in New Mexico and Texas and have helped hundreds learn how to use email marketing effectively. Working together, we decide the most effective approach for their business and create a plan. then I help them execute that plan providing as much or as little support as they need. I have worked with numerous organizations to plan successful events for large and small groups.
