JoAnne Funch Internet Marketing Minneapolis

Have any of you watched the Food Network TV Show CHOPPED where the contestants make a meal out of the mystery ingredients in the basket?

I help business owners take the mystery out of marketing their business and I often use the analogy that “Marketing is like a recipe you cook, it doesn’t work without the right ingredients”

I’m JoAnne Funch, marketing consultant, digital marketing strategist.

I come from a family of small business owners, and one day I thought I could do something better than the company I worked for, so I ventured out into my own business and have been in marketing and sales since 1996.  Perhaps you have a similar story.

As a business owner, I tended to learn from the school of hard knocks, most valuable lessons came from my failures. I also learned from the school of “life sometimes sucks” and you get dealt a tough hand like when my business partner (who also was my husband) died unexpectedly and I found myself in a situation both personally and professionally we had not planned for.

After relocating from Southern California to my hometown of Minneapolis in 2007, I immersed myself in learning internet marketing.  I knew as a marketing professional this is where my business and the clients I worked with would grow along with this up and coming thing called social media. (LinkedIn was the first social media site to launch in 2003 and Facebook just started in 2004 and this site called Twitter had come on the scene in 2006).

My Mission is simple:
