Who/What is a Sparker?

I’M STEPHEN PARKER (aka Sparker)

Starting in 1997 I spent about a decade building and managing web and online projects for Fortune 500 companies in Denver and Chicago. Working for some of the biggest tech, telecom, and energy companies in the world taught me how to build a compelling website, effectively communicate with customers, and get noticed by the search engines. I aslo worked as director of digital strategies for one of the Top 10 public relations firms in Chicago and led web, SEO, social media, reputation management, and crisis management campaigns for high-profile clients including:  The American Medical Association, The Chicago Cubs, J.B. Pritzker,  Earth Hour, and many more. 

In 2007 I took all of this experience and went out on my own to offer my web and social marketing services to smaller clients. Some of our clients are just launching their business and find they don’t have the time (or interest) to build or maintain a website. Others find that D.I.Y. isn’t cutting it anymore — but they cannot afford a big digital agency or PR firm.  That’s where we come in. We specialize in websites and strategies for businesses like:

  • Medical, dental, and orthodontics practices & clinics
  • Real estate professionals & contractors
  • Financial advisors
  • Attorneys & law firms
  • Landscape designers & landscaping companies
  • Architects & commercial builders
  • Musicians & artists
  • LEAN startups and MVP (Minimum Viable Product) sites and microsites

If you are looking for a Web company that won’t return your calls or talks over your head — keep looking. That’s not our style at all. I am an incredibly responsive person and I demand the same of anyone who works for me. We truly enjoy the process of website design and we love letting clients in on it.

We are true advocates for our clients in every sense of the word and we pride ourselves on the personal attention we give every single project.

My hometown (and our homebase) of Nashville, TN is well-known for its energy, creativity, and ‘can-do’ attitude. It’s no coincidence that our clients use the same words to describe us. We are passionate about finding ways for our clients to succeed online and we try to make the process as approachable and painless as possible. 

If any of this sounds good to you, we would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about your website project. Feel free to get in touch with us at any time.
