NICE TO MEET YOU!
Thanks for taking a few minutes to learn about us!
Please take a look below at how we can help you,
as we’ve helped others,
to put a spark in your business!
Who we are
FuseStarter is a Digital Marketing Firm specializing in Designing, Building, and Supporting Websites!
No business these days can be without a website, but have you noticed something about many businesses’ websites? Frankly, they’re hideous!
Not only that, they serve no real purpose or function. They took too much time to build, cost too much, and deliver too little in return.
Basically… we solve all of that.
Quality customers are attracted to quality businesses, and quality businesses provide an impactful and lasting first impression. For most customers, their first impression of you is your website.
You can’t afford to blow it.
FUSESTARTER IS CLEANING UP THE WEB ONE SITE AT A TIME!™
SITES MADE SIMPLE
Websites have traditionally been a thing you need and not a tool you use. They’ve also been far too complicated, expensive, and time-draining for the average business owner. They’ve demanded too much and delivered too little. Those days are gone, and good riddance! Your website is a tool that should be used continuously to grow your business. A FastFuse Website quickly puts a beautiful, modern website online in less than two weeks. Every function the modern business owner needs is accessible and ready to be put to work.
…A Spark is All You Need!™
See What Our Clients Say…
YOU CAN'T GO WRONG
“We needed a website firm that could deal with our exacting needs, but still get things done quickly. FuseStarter has a great process and super-talented team that can cut to the chase and make things happen. I highly recommend their services.”
– Jason Adams: CEO, Urban Vybe
RESULTS ARE FANTASTIC
“FuseStarter provided a strategic marketing automation framework for Catholic Charities Fort Worth. The project helped our organization outline go-to-market solutions and target personas. Their experience and guidance to drive results are fantastic.”
– Ken Koo, Head of Social Enterprise, Catholic Charities of Fort Worth
SELECTED OVER FIVE OTHER FIRMS
“We selected FuseStarter over 5 other Website developers based on how thorough FuseStarter was in the introduction interview. We needed a complete redesign of our website. We also had a very short time to complete the website design and the FuseStarter team didn’t flinch. The organization and controlled process they had in place made this project go smooth as silk. Their ability to become very intimate with our business was incredible. After just a couple of meetings, it felt like we had worked with them for years. In just a few short weeks, the FuseStarter team put together an incredible website, and surpassed all of our goals! We have signed up for a monthly program with them for Support as well as help with other Marketing objectives. I highly recommend FuseStarter for your website and marketing needs.”
– Chuck DeBeau, General Manager, Odyssey Tool
I'M IN AWE!
“You guys did an amazing job with the copy! It was no small feat paring down the massive amounts of content on the old site to bite size copy on the new site. PLUS you were able to make sense of what RedCape does! PLUS write it in a way that makes visitors want to read more!!!”
Impressive! I’m in awe.
– Vickie Sokol Evans, CEO, RedCape
FOUND A VALUABLE PARTNER
“Fusestarter offered valuable suggestions that really delivered a solid, quality product. They did a great job with attention to details, as their focus on optimizing the site for SEO, as well as the customer experience was a huge priority. I have found a valuable partner that I will continue to use with my company for years to come.”
– Cory Dugas, SVP Marketing, Men’s Best Primary Care
“The FuseStarter team was absolutely amazing and exceeded my expectations at every turn. I contacted Fusestarter hoping that they could build me a clean, professional, user-friendly website. What I actually received was all of that and much more. They presented a detailed, easy to understand proposal that outlined exactly how the build would proceed. Their charges were reasonable and in line with other quotes I had received. Their timeline was much quicker than most and they stuck to it, delivering right on time. The gentlemen I dealt with were friendly and easy to work with. Suffice it to say that the project start to finish was exactly what and how they proposed. The site itself was exactly what I wanted and I give them a tremendous amount of credit for figuring out just what that was and then executing it. I am one of those people who knows exactly what I want but am totally incapable of verbalizing it, which I know makes me difficult to deal with. Somehow, they managed to figure out what my vision was and present it in such a manner that I felt like they had pulled it out of my head. Most people, like myself, who need a website don’t have the first idea of what goes into designing and building one. Believe me, you will by the time you finish. They make the process relatively seamless for the owner by providing questionnaires, prompts, and other support items in order for the owner to relay the information they need to them. I never had to touch my old site and they migrated the information I needed from it and other places without bothering me about it. I believe the process for them may have been slightly frustrating dealing with me, but I never felt that way. They went out of their way to be accommodating and professional. I have dealt with many tech companies in various capacities and I can honestly say this is by far the best experience I have ever had. I highly recommend them and know you won’t be disappointed. ”
– Deanna Akin, Founder and President, The Program College Consulting
MARKETING BEST STANDARDS
“We are so grateful to Fusestarter for our visually spectacular new website. Especially helpful was their entry process that made us take a look at our existing customer personas and to create a new one for a market segment we might be trying to grow. Using marketing best standards and building upon the use of video, especially to highlight our stunning iconic landscape as the entry for our website, laid the foundation for an inviting and easy to navigate guest experience. Some of the tools they used to create timelines, moving sections in otherwise text-heavy pages, and event tools that make finding information easy for our guests really helped capture the hospitality and spirit of Ghost Ranch. Although we loved our former site, this new one was built with the need for ease on mobile phones and tablets, bringing Ghost Ranch’s website into this current era of use and technology. Fusestarter included our team in decisions every step of the way making the whole process from start to finish, fun and rewarding.”
– Anna Maria Gonzales, Marketing Director, Ghost Ranch Education & Retreat Center
ADDED A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE
“FuseStarter was hired to build a website for us but ended up doing much more. They had a unique view from outside our business and really helped us explore what it was that potential customers were asking for, and then seeing (or not seeing). It gave us great perspective and I think the new website reflects that. Their team is very professional and delivers more than you ask for and on time.”
– Paul Fogg (fmr), Executive Director & CEO, Calvin Center
TERRIFIC TO WORK WITH
“Fusestarter has been TERRIFIC to work with. They are very knowledgeable and have been able to make the process simple. I have been thrilled with the service they have provided.”
– J. Daily, HEDK Architects, Partner
RESPONSIVE & PROFESSIONAL
“We used fuseStarter to design and develop our law firm’s website and from the outset, we were impressed with the responsiveness and professionalism of the fuseStarter team. They were also quite good at paying attention to detail. They listened to our goals and needs and quickly developed a website that fulfills the needs of the firm. As well, the price for project was well within our budget. Good guys. Great business.”
– Doug Williams, Founder, Sellers Williams Law PLLC
How We Make GREAT Websites
the fuseStarter i5 principle
At fuseStarter, we have developed through experience what we call our “i5’s”. These 5 principles are what we know make a great website…
i1: INFORM - defn: provide facts or information; to tell.
A great website will provide information to the visitor. But the key thing is to provide the right info, in the right quantities. The goal is not to answer every conceivable question and overload the visitor, but give an “appetizer” that will lead them to contact you.
i2: IMPRESS – defn: make to feel admiration and respect; set an idea.
A great website will leave an impression of quality and excellence in the visitor’s mind. It will visually stimulate and convey concepts and ideas that are quickly digested and easily understood.
i3: INTRIGUE – defn: arouse the curiosity or interest of; fascinate.
A great website will inform and impress enough to create a desire in the visitor to know more and engage further.
i4: INCITE – defn: encourage or stir up.
A great website will motivate the visitor to take the next step and make it easy for them to do so.
i5: IGNITE – defn: arouse or inflame; catch fire or cause to catch fire.
Finally, a great website will create energy - light the fuse, ignite, and expand the visitor’s business and passions. A spark is all you need!
Why Should I Choose fuseStarter?
We Feel Your Pain!
Our Founders have been using marketing & technology companies for years. As entrpreneurs themselves, they know the pain and suffering of dealing with most marketing and tech firms – confusion, cost, delays, frustration, and not getting what you paid for. Basically, wasting your precious time and resources. We’ve specifically engineered fuseStarter and all we do to eliminate this pain & suffering!
We Make It Easy On You
We know you are busy! As much as you want a new website, many business owners don’t really have the time to spend on it. We get it. That’s why our process makes it super-simple and respects your time. Not saying we won’t be needing things from you, but we make the “ask” as efficient and easy as possible!
We're More Than Technical
We Don't Hold You Hostage
This is a “big deal” issue that most folks don’t know about. Most website developers will build all your website pieces under “their umbrella.” They lock you into “their world” (hosting, DNS, CMS, tools, etc.) and if you ever want to end your relationship with them – good luck! You’re held hostage and they are in control! We NEVER do that! We build everything so that if you ever need to move on, we can just turn over the keys to you. Simple!
