“I have extensive experience utilizing Christine’s services. She manages our City web sites (both tourism site and the actual City site) our inn association site and my bed and breakfast inn site. Her design capabilities are excellent. Just as important… her ability to market our sites is outstanding and we have high visitation numbers on all the sites. We require very fast turn around on two of our sites and she is extremely efficient and responsive. This requires strong attentiveness as she works directly with a great number of city staff and merchants to make these sites successful. (Which I would find to be a real challenge!)

“I am a member of City Council and I am responsible for tourism promotion in our city. Her efforts are very much appreciated. Her attention to detail, her design capabilities, her responsiveness and her marketing knowledge have been invaluable to us. Please contact me if you have specific questions or need more general information.”

“Being in the advertising/marketing industry exposes our company to an extremely large number of website designers. By far we place InnLight Marketing at the head of that list in terms of concept, creative design, and follow-through when it comes to travel websites. We are continually receiving compliments on the travel website we hired InnLight Marketing to create and its financial success has far exceeded expectations, due to a large part on the insights of InnLight Marketing prior to actual production. Not only was the design good looking, the thought process that went into its design was extremely effective. We strongly recommend InnLight Marketing if you are ever considering having a travel website designed.”

– Sincerely, Gerry Rose, Vice President May/Partners

Welcome to InnLight Marketing - a service established in the summer of 1998, dedicated to helping small business owners maximize their company's potential and optimize their overall profitability. I specialize in bed and breakfasts, boutique hotels, vacation rentals, restaurants and a host of other owner-operated businesses.

It is my passion to work with entrepreneurs - individuals who are noted for having an independent energetic spirit; who express a readiness and courage to undertake or experiment; who organize, manage and assume the risks of building a business from the germ of a creative idea. Or as Kilby noted, "Entrepreneurs are innovators who use a process of shattering the status quo of the existing products and services, to set up new products, new services ... a person with a high need for achievement."
