Meet Insight


The marketing world has changed tremendously since I started Insight Marketing in September 1997.  It is a fascinating, exciting time that allows smaller businesses to compete globally on the level of large corporations with big budgets.  We also get that sometimes your marketing and branding gets stale and you simply don’t have the time or don’t know where to start.  Give me a call if you are ready to hydrate your business, we will make it painless.

Just the Facts, Ma’am


Responsive Websites

85% of all websites are read from mobile devices such as cell phones and tablets. 57% of users say they won’t recommend a business with a poorly designed mobile site.  – CMS Report


Digital Marketing

There are 2.3 billion active social media users and 91% of retail brands use 2 or more social media channels. Visual content is 40 times more likely to get shared on social media than other types of content. – Brandwatch


Email Marketing

When it comes to purchases, email has the highest conversion rate (66%), when compared to social, direct mail and more. – Direct Marketers Association (DMA)

Insight Marketing - Mobile Web Design

Mobile Searches

72% of consumers who did a local search visited a store within five miles.  28% of searches for something nearby result in a purchase — Google


Is Direct Mail Dead?

Highly debatable and totally depends upon your industry.  There is a resurgence in direct mail due to the spamming nature of emails. Also, 79% of consumers act on direct mail immediately verses 45% on email.
– Direct Marketers Association (DMA)


Should you do both SEO and SEM?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is like getting fed by planting a garden, while Search Engine Marketing (SEM) is like going to the grocery store to eat now.

Rare Talents and Integrity

It is rare that you come across such an extremely talented individual like Cathy Busick, President of Insight Marketing. I appreciated her attention to detail and creative approach in the design and strategic decisions made during my re-election campaign for Superior Court Judge. The professionalism and integrity of Cathy throughout the election cycle was unwavering, which allowed me as the candidate to respond to misinformation causing confusion to voters while remaining focused on running an honest, fact-based campaign. These unique talents possessed by Insight Marketing further allowed me to constantly drive meaningful engagement on social media. I developed a wonderful partnership with Cathy and her team. Their dedication to my website and all my social media management needs was evident to the viewer. Rest assured that your message will also be heard loud and clear with the assistance of Cathy. Insight Marketing was outstanding and their responsive service is beyond anything I could have imagined. Insight Marketing receives my highest recommendation. Cathy Busick is the marketing professional you will hire again.
