Who loves puppies?  When this customer contacted me, I suggested we create a puppy video for their Southern Minnesota business.  Yes, you guessed it, they raise puppies.  Their website needed a little refresh, which Westbrack Marketing assisted with.  Then, we talked about increasing their SEO so that they could be found on Google.  The video was just a bonus and so fun to create.  My daughter would have loved a puppy and I could imagine her driving around Owatonna with her dog hanging out the window. However, school trumped puppy in this case.   Still, it was wonderful helping this entrepreneur with their business.   Enjoy the puppy video!

When I was on the board for the Business Bootcamp for the Owatonna Chamber, we were talking about ideas to create interest in attendance.  I volunteered to create a video and here is how we promoted the meetings.  

When you work with a locally owned company like Westbrack Marketing, you are working with someone who gives back to the community.  To date, I have donated hours, websites and more to about 25 local non profits within the Owatonna and Faribault communities.  I was just raised that you give back to the places and people you love.   My family and I have been in the Owatonna area for years and my husband grew up here.

So much fun doing a Facebook Live Training Session in Southern Minnesota.  I love doing training and as the owner of Westbrack Marketing, I have been helping people learn about video, Facebook Live and tools and tips for their small business.  

This was in the evening and just a "test" so that they could see how it works and then we talked about how to use Facebook video, how to grow with it and different ideas.  

Sharing my knowledge in marketing is one of my passions.  If you are interested in training for your small or large group, contact me today!

 When Begin Again Health and Wellbeing contacted Westbrack Marketing, she had a website that was not working.  Her Health and Wellness Faribault Website did not fully showcase who she was or what she offered.  

After talking with Holly from Westbrack Marketing, Dawn was given a proof of a complete website that she loved.  The new website allows her to promote her Faribault and Owatonna events, take online payments, create an email marketing system and so much more.  Plus, Dawn was trained so she can make changes to the website as needed.

Did you know you can back up your Facebook Page?   Watch my quick video so you know how and why to back up your Facebook page.   It's easy!   Just like you maintenance your computer, it is important at times to back up your social just in case something happens.  

For example, one Owatonna retail business was working with a social media content creator that was not local.  They had her hours wrong, spelling errors and more within her posts.  When she decided to discontinue the contract, they took down her page.  If she had backed it up, at least the images would still be at her disposal.

Look at this great group of fabulous people who just learned about Facebook Advertising in Southern Minnesota.

I was honored to share some tips at Northfield Enterprise Center. Chris Whillock does a great job providing training and educational opportunities for local Northfield businesses there.

When it comes to Facebook Advertising, making sure you have the right audience is key.  You can create and run campaigns using simple self-serve tools, and track their performance with easy-to-read reports.

You can create an audience age, location and other details—choose the demographics, interests and behaviors that best represent your audience.    Yet, you can go even deeper than that.  For example, if you are...

When a local Owatonna business was looking to update their website, they contacted Westbrack Marketing.  They knew they needed an Owatonna website with online payments built in.  Holly Sobrack researched and interviewed various programs that fit their class schedule needs as well as online processing so that they could find the perfect, yet affordable fit.

The results were a new website with a back end program that now allows their customers to book classes online, pay online and more.  The robust program will allow them to grow and support them as their needs change.

Westbrack Marketing is thrilled to have partnered with Jill Hoggard Academy of Dance in Owatonna to create a site that she has full con...
