SmallWerks, Inc. is a small business marketing agency founded by Courtney Olson in 2009 in Orange County, CA. After four years, she and her husband Garrett opened another office in Colorado Springs, CO. The team at SmallWerks has decades of experience in the field of marketing, and specializes in offering a wide spectrum of services in marketing, design, and web development.
We tend to build long-term relationships with our clients, and like thinking of them more like partners than clients. We believe that marketing shouldn't have to be stressful. We like giving recommendations, not sales pitches. If this sounds like the kind of marketer you would like to work with, get in touch with us! We're looking forward to meeting you!
Our Clients say:
When starting out my catering business, an acquaintance recommended SmallWerks as a designer for the brochure I was hoping to have made. At our initial meeting, I realized what a great resource this company would be for me. SmallWerks took an incredible personal interest and approach to my business, helping me not only to design a fetching catering brochure, but to truly organize my business ideas into a cohesive mission and philosophy. That was a beginning of a greatly fruitful relationship, and we were blessed to have SmallWerks’ support and excellent-quality work every step of the way as we expanded into the realms of foodtrucking and restaurant-ownership. We started with a need for a catering brochure, and ended with an amalgam of “Werks”–including our website, truck wrap, t-shirts, literature and signage–that perfectly expressed who we were as a business.
Our business is really taking off, but our homemade website didn’t match our new growth and move from a startup to an established small business. It was time for a more professional look and layout. The team at SmallWerks came in and did much more than revamp our site, they completely rebuilt it to portray our style and move into higher end manufacturing. The new website is easy to navigate for our customers and really highlights our machines and capabilities. Now we feel confident in gaining new customers and business through our website. And even after it was completed, SmallWerks is still there to answer our questions and help us grow as needed.
The SmallWerks crew helped us create a foundation for our marketing strategy and set tons of positive marketing efforts in motion. From the development of our Facebook Fan Page (from scratch) and new marketing print materials, to radio spots and client database organization, Courtney is smart, thoughtful, creative, efficient, and thorough. As a small business, we were not equipped to launch effective marketing campaigns without SmallWerks’ help.
We have nothing but great things to say about Courtney Olson and SmallWerks. Though we have used SmallWerks for just a few small projects (such as business cards and letterhead design), Courtney always makes us feel like her most important clients. Our recommendation to her comes without reservation.
Courtney is one of the most POSITIVE people that I know. She has a great education, tons of experience in the business world, and a creative mind that can help any client to achieve their goal of producing the best image for their company. I would highly recommend SmallWerks to any business owner that need help with creative work.
Caliber Paving has been working with SmallWerks now for about a year with several ongoing projects. She is always timely with her products and deliverable items. Courtney has always been a great resource to collaborate with on projects and maintaining consistency in our ongoing marketing. She has been great to work with and I have referred her to others as well.
You are fabulous! Maraming salamat (Tagalong for ‘many thanks’)!
I worked with SmallWerks when putting on Escalate Live 2010, a creative photography conference at the Newport Beach historic Lido Theater over two industry-changing days that resulted in over 36,000 views, many of them international, through the live feed webcast. Courtney was a huge asset to this conference's success helping with PR messaging and planning the execution of actual day. We had a number of difficult factors to putting this conference on and Courtney organized and executed her responsibilities well. I highly recommend SmallWerks’ services.
