Meet Brian Stoll,
Owner,Website Designer/Wix Expert/Marketing Specialist
Brian holds a Marketing Management degree and Social Media Marketing Certificate from Kirkwood Community College, plus has previous experience as a digital marketing specialist and a sales associate. He also sits on the advisory board for the Marketing Management program at Kirkwood.
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. The right digital marketing strategies will help you develop a relationship with your current customers as well as reach new ones. Illuminate Digital offers a full range of marketing services, including website development, SEO, hosting, and social media marketing.
Taylar Michelle Stout,
Website Designer/Wix Expert/Content Writer
Hello, my name is Taylar I am a website designer and content writer with Illuminate Digital. I have two wonderful little girls who are 4 years apart and an amazing partner whom I’ve been with for almost five years. Together we also have two dogs and one cat!
I’m a collage graduate from Kirkwood Community College and I have my degree in Hospitality Management. Before I started with web design I was bartending and managing a restaurant in Solon, IA called Big Grove Brewery. I absolutely loved my job! After COVID shut everything down I started looking for a new journey so I could stay home with my little ones. That’s when I was introduced with Brian at Illuminate Digital.
I’ve been with Illuminate Digital since August of 2020. I have found that there is plenty to learn in web design. I consider myself a forever student and love finding new trends and designs. I believe in being as organized as possible, which is something I like to practice in my home and professional life. Some of my hobbies include renovating our home, reading, and walks with our family.
Website Designer/Wix Expert/Content Writer
Aimee has 8 Years of experience writing content for website content for nearly every type of business from coast to coast.
Hello, my name is Aimee. I greatly enjoy writing and using my skills to help business owners market their business online. Internet marketing is constantly changing and evolving and it is important to stay at the forefront of changes.
I worked for a large nationwide marketing company that transitioned from phone books to websites and digital marketing at one of their headquarter locations, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. When I joined Hibu, I was fortunate enough to join at a time where business owners were transitioning from strictly using print advertising to incorporating online advertising into their advertising budget.
I started out as a “Digital Services Representative”. I worked as a sales representative with outside sales representatives in markets in Ohio and Louisiana. I learned how to work with various types of business owners and businesses. No business is exactly alike and I enjoyed helping our clients develop the best advertising programs based on their target audience and budget. During my time as a “Digital Services Representative”
I learned the ropes of the exciting world of internet advertising: including websites, search engine marketing, search engine optimization, and online display. I would help build online display ads and run budgets for search engine marketing and optimization. I would help my clients get set up on webinars to further develop their business’ footprint on the internet.
During my time at the company, I was blessed enough to spend time in a few different departments in the company. My favorite role was as a website consultant, and content writer
I enjoy providing SEO-rich copywriting for clients. I want to use words to paint a positive image of their business. I greatly enjoyed the time I spent as a website writer at Hibu; bringing to life our clients’ online presence with their website.
After the company outsourced the content and consulting services overseas I have worked at a childcare center and guest services in a hotel. I definitely missed writing. When I was approached with the opportunity to write websites for Illuminate Digital, LLC. I was excited to get back to my passion of helping business owners of all types of businesses by writing SEO-rich website content.
I greatly appreciate having the opportunity to write your website and watch your business grow!
