Welcome to Strategic Partners Marketing, LLC
Strategic Partners Marketing came to life in April 2015 with the vision of providing access to marketing knowledge, resources, and support to small- and medium-sized local businesses. After working in sales, TV advertising, and digital marketing, founder, Amber Swenor, had built relationships with many local business owners and found that they shared many of the same struggles: lack of time, resources, and knowledge about which marketing strategies to implement and how. She founded SPM with the goal of serving these businesses to save them time, and provide them access to knowledge and resources as a go-to marketing partner to help them on an on-going basis, project basis, or as needed to provide them the marketing support they need.
