Virtual Sidekick Marketing & Design
Creative marketing & design for the forward-thinking business! Take the "what's next" feeling out of running your business - let us be your one-stop sidekick for business success!
I have worked as a marketing consultant for over 3 years now, with additional web design & development experiencing dating back over 10 years. My start in marketing first came about through providing individual training to those starting their own home businesses. From there I've been able to branch out into my current position as the Senior Marketing Consultant of my own company, Virtual Sidekick.
Since starting in business, I have focused primarily on educating the local small business community about Internet Marketing (particularly social media). To this end, I've given a number of short speeches, seminars and workshops to show small business owners how they can better use the Web to bring down marketing costs while achieving better results for their businesses.
As the new millennium progresses, I look forward to focusing on new technologies that will go farther to close the gap between small businesses and large corporations in terms of marketing and advertising. As an advocate for small business and someone who feels that competition in the marketplace holds benefit for everyone (especially the consumer), I am always looking for methods, techniques and technologies like social media and mobile marketing that will level the playing field and allow small businesses to share a larger part of the pie.

“Ina is an amazing young woman with skills, talents and a business sense that few people have no matter what their age. She is very professional. My work with Ina was focused on press releases and Internet marketing. She interviewed me, created a marketing production for her online radio network and then created a marketing buzz around it for me. Ina over-delivers. I highly recommend her.”

“Virtual Sidekick is helping relieve me from a lot of projects and not enough time. I’ve handed over the marketing work for two clients and am very happy with their progress, communication about the projects and their ability to move forward on a project with little direction. I’m very happy to have them as a partner. My clients are happy, too. They’re work is getting completed in a timely fashion.”
