“Our visibility skyrocketed almost immediately when we engaged Spark Lab Consulting to help with our online presence. We now have a clear picture and roadmap for the future and our business is booming. If you want to grow your business big-time, Spark Lab is your answer.”

"Working with Sara and her marketing team has been beyond what I could have hoped for! As a doctor who is very busy dealing with patients and trying to run a business, I can't say how much I appreciate how organized, efficient, and goal-specific they are. I truly had NO idea what went into building a brand, a website, and marketing a business. From SEO to targeted ads, social media presence to blog posts, they have helped me make a dent in a saturated market. I have new patients flooding in, yet because of their brand-specific marketing, my patients know my name, my kid's names, even my dog's name. We have been able to grow in size yet not lose touch with those most important to us; our patients. I'm super excited for the future, and actually am planning on expanding my brand further with their help. Very grateful to have found this team!"

“Sara at Spark Lab Consulting has been fabulous to work with, she always went above and beyond for our small nonprofit agency. She took us from our mediocre social media, blog posting, SEO building, and email campaigning and helped us stand on steady ground with consistency, and always helped us to continually build to the next steps to make things great for us and the clients we serve.”

“As someone who has been in the business world for 30+ years and 15 of them working with MidMarket and SMB I have worked with a lot of marketeers aiming to help my clients. Spark Lab Consulting and specifically Sara ran their process on my business and it was simple, rightsized, effective, understandable, and actionable. THANK YOU. Nice job.”

“Working with my coach, Sara, during the Marketing Plan Coaching Program was a great experience. I was looking for a solution to my company's marketing problems. We have a group of full-service athletic clubs in different locations in the Western United States that require individualized marketing plans. I wanted to find a structured course that guided me through a process to create the plans internally. The Marketing Plan Coaching Program was exactly what I was looking for. We have finally accomplished our goal of executing on a professional marketing strategy!”

"Before this program, I was messily trying to piece together a Marketing Plan for our business. I had a lot of random insight that I just didn’t know how to structure into a cohesive plan. Since starting the Marketing Manager Training Program, I feel much more confident in where our plan is moving, and that it has all the necessary parts for us to be successful. Sara has been incredibly helpful throughout the entire process, answering all my questions and giving helpful feedback. I’m excited to implement the Marketing Plan that I will be leaving this program with."

"Spark Lab Consulting is a big part of my firm’s success! First, it was the books, then an assessment, and then a long-term coaching relationship. I would not be where I am today without their insights and focused counsel. Most importantly they are just a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate engaging them."
