Our Services

We offer impeccable marketing services such as building your brand in visuals with custom photography, videography, and website creation. We grow your audience through blog marketing, ad management, landing page design, email marketing, autoresponders, content calendar development, and search engine optimization. Within our proven system of lifecycle marketing, we ATTRACT your ideal targeted customer, we then SELL them through creating a strong connection, and finally, we WOW them to build even more referrals and sales. Below is the process of how we work with our clients.

Step 1. Your Big Why

We start with branding to help you to establish your true message – Your Big Why. This involves an exercise we give you to create your individual branding message. We can do a photo shoot with you to ensure you look amazing. These images will be the basis of your Big Why images on your website, emails, ads and social posts for the next year. Next we can create a Big Why video where you get to wax poetic about your message. This will be the core video that you promote strongly for the next year.

Step 2. Amazing Website and Lead Pages

Our first step is to create an amazing website for you with you within 2-months. The website will look beautiful, be branded with your unique logo, colors, and images/videos. We will highlight your programs/services/products and set them up to sell. We create your strategy and plan (this is paramount to your success to have this defined with measures each step of the way). Next, we will create lead pages in this same manner that focus on gathering leads with no distractions so the ads we run will convert.

Step 3. Lead Generation

We then focus on getting you leads. We do this through helping to coach you to create super blogs, using tools to determine terms that are popular and how to utilize them efficiently. We run Facebook and Google ads to drive traffic to your site and lead pages. We also have monthly calls, and weekly checkin’s to ensure your needs are being met, and we are performing.

Our Founders

John Wayne Zimmerman


John Wayne Zimmerman is a Social Media Maverick, having penned the book on Facebook Marketing, The Complete Idiot’s Guide for Facebook Marketing. John walks the walk, and has enough swagger to shake the Golden Gate Bridge. John is technical, analytical, hysterical, lyrical, and fun. Having spoken at conferences, seminars, and events around the world, John has been seen by tens of thousands of engaged fans. Some brave souls even call him “The Duke.”

Jeremy DeWeese


Jeremy DeWeese is a Visual Virtuoso, an expert in all things pertaining to Photography, Videography, Art and writing copy for sales pages and websites. Jeremy is also an accomplished speaker, regularly bringing rooms of people to their feet, dancing around with joy. But if you want to know what he is best at, get him in a one on one conversation sometime, and see how clear you feel after he gets done with you. He listens more effectively than cassette player on record mode. He knows what is important to you and is committed that you fulfill upon every dream and desire.

Our Mission

We believe in the human spirit, the desire to connect, the need to be heard, and we believe that every entrepreneur has a great message to share. Our programs will help you get there – to be known – to make a difference.

We work for entrepreneurs with families. We work hard and smart so you can get it all done on social and still have time for those you love. We believe a well-balanced life is one worth living. And whether they are your intimate family, close fiends or extended community – they deserve your attention and you deserve the time to enjoy them. With us as your partners, we will help you get there so you can live a life you love.

We are committed to getting you results that matter, and making the process fun and easy. Our biggest pleasure is to teach, so if you are here to learn, you are in the right place.

Watch for our videos, social posts, programs, and live events as we wax poetic on all things social. When possible, we will bring you Thought leaders to weigh in on the topics on the day that most impact and help you. Our blog subscribers will always get the inside scoop.

Be warned that we are sometimes unconventional, rough around the edges, and definitely not always perfectly polished. Consider it, well, part of our charm. You, on occasion, will fall out of your chair, laugh so hard you pee yourself, or even gasp in amazement that we said something so brash. If you are uptight, or easily offended, you may not dig our occasional ludicrous but well intentioned antics.

We truly love our fans and we invite you to become one today.
