Data-Driven Social Media, Content Marketing, and Digital PR for Startups, Small Businesses, and Local Governments
We Get It…
Whether you’re an entrepreneur or a marketing manager, you’re overwhelmed by all of the daily tasks associated with marketing a company or product. Blog posts, social media updates, influencer outreach, reporter pitching… there just aren’t enough hours in the day. The tools you need to do a good job cost tens of thousands of dollars each year, which eats into your annual budget. We invest in those things so you don’t have to.
We’re here to help. When it comes to digital PR and online marketing, we have time for all the things you don’t. We are experts in our industry, and we keep up on social media, SEO and content marketing news so you don’t have to. It’s our passion.
We help businesses accomplish amazing things, from national brands to brand new startups. You tell us where you want to go, and we’ll map out a plan of attack to get you there.
Let’s roll up our sleeves and go to work!
FastStart Media was founded out of a need to combine web application development, business systems analysis, and social media marketing. As an entrepreneur, I run a diverse mix of businesses and realized that I could hire expert programmers, but they didn’t understand how to apply my business systems. Marketers could be brought in, but they were generally married to one particular strategy or vehicle. A new way of visualizing, analyzing, and connecting with customers needed to be created. FastStart Media was born.
As a life-long entrepreneur and multipotentialite, I have a wide depth and breadth of knowledge across many fields and industries. This enables me to see your business in ways that you may not have envisioned.
As a member of Mensa, I have an unparalleled network of peers who can assist in tackling the most complex problems. Simultaneously, I have spent years cultivating relationships with uniquely talented creatives around the world.
You don’t need the same solution that everyone else is using. You need a fresh, dynamic look into your core business and a data-driven strategy to guide your project moving into the future.
I look forward to our discussions and – hopefully – bringing fresh insight to your particular challenges.

What kind of results can we achieve? Below is an actual screenshot from a recent Facebook ad campaign we handled for a regional residential construction client:
How doe these compare? According to Hochman Consultants, the average CPC (cost-per-click) in their study was $1.58. Ours was $0.10 for all interactions and $0.21 per website visit. The average CTR (click-through-rate) in the study was 0.8%. Ours was 14.08% for all interactions and 6.43% for website visits.
The takeaway? We can drive traffic to your website for a fraction of the cost of traditional advertising. (This only compares paid advertising. Social media engagements – free – account for even more traffic and conversions!)
