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.

Cathy is a pure pleasure to work with and a big time team player.  In the midst of a national economic slowdown in tourism and travel, she worked with us as a marketing partner.
