Meet Brian Stoll, Owner
I love helping small businesses navigate the ever-changing world of digital marketing.
I started Illuminate Digital because I was tired of seeing customers get a website without any support or training on how to use it. It happened all the time when I worked at a big box company that built websites – clients would have a website designed for them but wouldn’t know how to use it to grow their business. That’s like buying a brand-new car but not having the keys. A website won’t help you increase your revenue if all it does is look pretty.
A website is so much more powerful than a list of your products or services. A long-term marketing partner can help you uncover new ways to promote your company online. Some businesses need simple solutions, such as an FAQ page to eliminate phone questions or regular social media posts to stay connected with their customers. Others need SEO tools (search engine optimization) to ensure new customers can find them through an online search.One thing that I learned during my 15 years of sales and four years of website development is how to connect to customers beyond a sales pitch. The right digital marketing strategies will help you develop a relationship with your current customers as well as reach new ones. Digital Illuminate offers a full range of marketing services, including website development, SEO, hosting, and social media marketing.
Born and raised in Cedar Rapids, IA, I’ve always enjoyed the thriving business and entertainment culture here. But I also fell in love with the Prairie du Chien area about 10 years ago. I came up for a fishing tournament and just kept coming back for more. We bought a house in 2016 and enjoy every minute we spend in the area. From a seasonal visitor to now a weekend resident, I have a unique perspective on how local businesses can use digital marketing to attract and retain customers.
