Success is Ugly & Hard.
We handle the Ugly
Part for You.
Sales and marketing can have a high amount of technology, data, and can need a Designer's touch.
We handle all that for you.
Websites. Brochures, Advertising. Video & more.
Google. Social Media. What you do next.
Don't take our word for it. Listen to them.
.... is not just what it looks like and feels like.
Design is how it works.
-- Steve Jobs
Visuals, Content, Building.
Brochures, Product Sheets, Catalogues,
Almost anything on paper.
Logos, Corporate Materials.
What your business means visually.
Print and Digital.
Product Demos, Instructions, You.
What one thing
does your website
need to do in an
absolutely superb way?
What does your target market need from your website?
We can help you work through these and other key questions. Send us an email to start the conversation.
( We know people like to see examples of our work. Here are three... )
Almost Anything on Paper
Your clients aren't on
the internet 24/7.
Your message needs to work offline
Printed materials provide the information your clients need.
"There are no cover bands in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."
We custom design to communicate what is unique and valuable about what you do.
Making you memorable is tough and it's not fast, but it's necessary if you're serious about growing your business.
We handle that for you.
Does Advertising Still Work?
Bad advertising doesn't work.
Good advertising does.
We help your advertising work.
Work to reach new clients.
Work to influence your market.
How much time do you spend demoing your product or showing people how to use your service?
Wouldn't it be easier just to send them a video link?
They want more sales.
Marketing is a means to an end.
Search Engines. Analytics, AdWords, Landing Pages.
Facebook. LinkedIn, Twitter, Blogs, The Next Big Thing.
Was that ad supposed to go to the magazine?
Don't worry, we handled it.
You have an opportunity. Now what?
You can't Kobayashi Maru your way to
the top of Google.
We don't believe in no-win scenarios. We help you promote your business via search engines with services like....
- optimizing your website so it displays well in search engines.
- creating content that helps people find you and appreciate you when they do.
- emailing regular Analytics Reports about your website's visitors.
- creating & monitoring online ads, including Google AdWords.
- designing specialized web pages to take advantage of specific opportunities.

Every Business says
"We Listen to Our Customers"
Social media sees that bet and raises.
With so many platforms, where do you focus? Our recommendations:
1) Spend time listening, not talking.
Which platforms are your clients using? Who are your prospects listening to? Listen to them, too.
Which platforms give you a better return?
3) Start some conversations.
Tie those into your marketing.
Social Media success is not fast and it can consume your time. That's ugly. We can help you with that part.
Some of what we do for our clients is invisible.
A distributor calls looking for photos of your products for one of their promotions. Who has those images handy?
A tradeshow venue has strict rules about when things are delivered and who can handle them. Who deals with that?
Your ads for magazines and online publications have formats, deadlines and tracking codes. Who knows them?
That all sounds ugly.
We handle that part for you.
What You Do Next
"People don't realize our product also does X."
"We want to grow Market Segment Y. How do we do that?"
"For our company's 25th anniversary,
what special thing can we do for our clients?"
There are marketing opportunities that don't have simple answers from a book.
We help you by offering creative thinking and decades of experience.
What you do next is contact us.

Since 2006 we’ve helped our clients grow.
Ed is responsible for your relationship with IronStrikesIron. Contacting him is your first step.
Edward J. Bebee
It all started because he could draw.
Which led to many years working for some of Canada's best firms as both a Graphic Designer and a Manager of other Designers.
But a funny thing happened. Ed started being asked to consult on more general marketing and business issues. He began contributing articles to business magazines.
His talent for understanding technology led to Ed being on speed dial for companies whose sales and marketing efforts became IT-heavy.
He has worked with small companies and he has worked with some of the World's biggest brands.
Today Ed leads IronStrikesIron.
