Who are We?

In January of 2018 we started as an ambitious startup located in Cedar Rapids, with the simple goal of helping small businesses thrive. We left our office space in March of 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic to continue our work from home, collaborating virtually. Today, we serve businesses of varying sizes across the United States that share our family and small business values.

How are we Different?

Banowetz Marketing acts as your marketing department, but at a fraction of the cost of an in-house department. We work closely with businesses to get to know the people and industries.

How can we help you?

Banowetz Marketing helps you by providing leadership and direction, planning and implementation, industry knowledge, creativity and clear communication. We implement the marketing plans that your company needs to grow.

We care about family & small business because we are a family business!

Growing up in family business gave me a passion for seeing small businesses thrive. A pivotal point in this journey was during the 2008 recession, when my parents’ successful business needed fresh branding and marketing techniques. I took the experience with the marketing I was doing in my own photography business and started implementing the same successful strategies in my family’s business. I watched their business bloom even further and it set a fire within me. 

Every family business should be able to experience this success from their marketing efforts.

That’s when the passion really began. I believe that every entrepreneur should have the marketing support they need in order to run their business successfully.

Even on the hard days, this is what gets me up in the morning and what keeps me motivated – seeing small businesses provided with the right tools that they need to really thrive. Business owners are looking for marketing that fits their needs precisely, without sacrificing the bottom line. 

I believe that your marketing should be working for you.

Sincerely,

Sarah
