Laura L. Newsom


Marketing Specialist and Small Business Advocate.

My passion for small business began from watching my parents struggle with their small business. I saw how hard they worked and how much they cared about the services they provided. I have been consulting with small businesses for over 25 years. I’ve seen the wonderful benefits of the internet and how it’s changed most every aspect of our lives. I’ve seen the positive effects on small businesses and for those they have not adapted, their struggles. We are committed to providing affordable effective marketing strategies to small businesses not only through online marketing, but also with a focus on their available community resources that would be beneficial.
