Emagine Marketing was started in 1999 by owners Tim Frank and Angela Mayer. Initially, our goal was to be the local advertiser for Spencer businesses on the internet. Emagine then started the local web sites www.spencer-ia.com, www.okoboji-ia.com and www.stormlake-ia.com. This brought about a demand for web site production, and then, in late 2000, Emagine Internet Marketing began an innovative marketing concept that featured a revenue-sharing program.
Emagine continues developing designs, websites, and ideas that work to help our customers sell and internally function more effectively. In short, here are the major areas of work we specialize in:
- Web Design: Web Design has been a very large part of our business. Over the years we have built more than 5,000 websites for local and national customers. What sets us apart from other designers is that, "We Don't Just Produce Web Sites, We Produce Sales" as our slogan states. Because of this difference we are highly sought after.
- Commission Marketing: With these clients we have a joint revenue share plan to help their companies grow. Currently we have 68 commission clients for whom we make all online marketing decisions. As part of our commission marketing we manage their online advertising and email promotions. Because of this advertising and success we are one of Google's Platinum Consultants.
- EMPIRE Shopping Cart: After struggling with other cart software, we designed, researched and developed our own e-commerce cart - EMPIRE. EMPIRE is used on 85 client websites. In EMPIRE's development, we worked with a marketing research firm in Boca Raton to develop our own proprietary abandon cart retention.
- Database Programming: Early on we realized that websites need dynamic content and database integration. We staff one full-time ASP Programmer one full-time PHP programmer.
- Hosting: We provide a hosting service where we host over 350 clients. For those clients we provide internet hosting, database management and email.
- Print: In 2003, we extended our graphic art ability to outside the web arena alone. We now offer logo development, corporate identity, print products such as book covers, brochures, signage and etc.
- Order Fulfillment: Our newest service, as of 2008, provides order fulfillment and customer service.
The future of Emagine Internet Marketing is bright. We have had steady growth since the start of our business We have been fortunate to have found that our business has not been affected by the recent economic downturn. Over the next 5 years, we expect to add 1 employee per year.
Emagine Marketing is proud to assist in many charitable services in our community and beyond. In 2008 we donated $24,158 to several different organizations.
We're proud of the fact that the websites we develop help to keep Spencer and Northwest Iowa businesses flourishing. These websites generate outside revenue for local businesses.
