Who We Are

About the VanDuzers

How it all started…

In 2010, husband and wife team David (the tech-savvy product designer) and Rachel (the business-minded communication professional) decided to channel their expertise and mutual artistic energy into their work for VanDuzer Design & Marketing. In order to deliver the best possible quality work, they have created a network of consultants and business owners with specialties and strengths that contribute to the goals of VanDuzer Design & Marketing. Below are a few of our regular contributors.

More than a decade later…

Over the last 13 years we’ve worked with hard-working family farms, unique food retailers, impactful non-profits, vibrant ministries and more. We continued our work without skipping a beat even while living abroad for 5 years! Now we’ve settled in New Hampshire and enjoy the snowy mountains and pristine lakes here. We work well remotely and love aligning ourselves with clients whose mission we’re also passionate about!

How We Work

The first thing we’ll do is assess your current marketing efforts. Then we work with you to help clarify your message, and most importantly to communicate how using your products or services will help potential customers live life to the fullest. We’ll help you attract new customers as well as to keep existing customers informed and satisfied.
We’ll work with your goals and budget to determine the best way to connect with potential customers. (In marketing jargon, this is often called the “top of the funnel” or “awareness” stage. Often, that includes designing a new website or making your website more user-friendly. Your website is where most customers take their first steps with you, so it’s important they can easily get a sense of your business and why they need you in their life.
Next, we’ll work on driving traffic to your website through search engine optimization and raising awareness through public relations. We’ll help you retain customers throughout the customer journey using social media, email marketing and a blog.
We’ll get you equipped with all of the materials you need to help your customers get to know you and how they can connect with you further. This may include marketing materials, logos, labels, or more.

We Look Forward to Working with You!
