Is your website a glorified brochure?

You already know you SHOULD be doing more with the web.

But the problem is, the adage "if you don't ask the right questions you won't get the right answers" is especially true in online marketing.

You can waste thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours if you don't know what to do and how to do it. Most so-called web experts throw industry jargon around like candy. How are you supposed to know what they're talking about and if it's right for you?

That's why you need a trusted expert you can turn to. Someone who will make sure you understand all of your options, and guide you in making the best choices to help you reach your goals in the long run.

“I know you know what you're doing, but you also explain things to me in a way that I can understand. I can't believe how much I've learned!”

Lisa Kipps-Brown, Business Reimagination Expert

Hi! I'm Lisa Kipps-Brown, founder of Glerin, and a Business Reimagineer & Opportunity Miner. I’ve been helping business owners like you use the power of the web to reach their goals since 1996.

During this time I've seen every internet marketing fad that's come and gone, and even sold an online business to a dot-com just before the bubble burst.

My goal is to help you start using the web strategically to save time, increase profits, avoid costly mistakes, and take control of your life.

Even if someone else is designing your site, you need a solid strategy first.

Our Guerilla Brand Strategy Consult is the first step in transforming your website from a glorified brochure to the hardest working member of your business.

And I promise, NO GOBBLEDYGOOK!

It costs as little as $150 to get started on the right track and your success is backed by my We're In It Together Money Back Guarantee.

After helping to break the drought of over 12 years of non-sold-out festivals in 2013, the pressure was on for a successful encore for the 2014 Virginia Cantaloupe Festival. Putting our creative minds together in a marathon brainstorming session, we created the theme You've Got Friends in Lope Places and introduced a character we created named Lope.

For as long as we've been working with the tourism office, director Linda Shepperd has wished for some type of animation that would let visitors "drive" around the county to discover things. Using animation that requires no special browser plugins, illustrator Erin Kipps Brown came up with a concept to treat the project like a theme park map. Requiring no special plugins, it can be displayed on all devices.

When we were invited by Virginia's Department of Housing and Community Development to speak about marketing to Virginia Main Street Community directors from across the state, we needed something helpful to give them to take back to the office. Our Quicky Guide to Social Media ended up being quite a hit! This poster is different from anything we've ever seen: It has dry erase blocks to let the user jot notes for planning their social media. The poster is 11"x17" - large enough to accommodate the dry erase blocks but small enough to not take up too much of the user's office wall.
