Sandra Wills  
Graphic Designer / Web Designer
My company, The Graphics House LLC, helps small business owners get found online by designing websites, designing and producing digital promotional materials such as lead magnets, online newsletters, ebooks, and creating email marketing campaigns. Because each business is unique we start with defining a marketing strategy that aligns with your business goals and identifies what is needed to reach those goals and your target audience. We devise the strategy to meet your business goals, select and create the marketing materials required for your campaign, execute on the campaign and track the metrics to determine your marketing ROI. Our goal is to maximize your marketing message and get you found online. 

Good communication essential in today’s multi-channel communication environment and I have great communication skills. Good communication is important whether it is verbal or visual, print or digital. I have 20 years experience in the graphic arts industry, so I know a lot about good communication. I am a basically a quiet person, but that makes me a good listener. When I am not designing and executing effective digital marketing campaigns, I love to be on the tennis court trying to improve my game.
