Who we are

Just as a mainspring is small but essential, we are a family owned and operated marketing company that caters to small businesses. If you’re looking for creative ways to grow your business, update your marketing strategy or searching for new ways to communicate with your customers, we can help!

Our business began after we decided to join forces and spend our time and energy doing what we love – helping others create marketing plans that work so they can keep doing what THEY love!

Darlene Davis
President & Owner
I have always searched for roles that allowed me to work with people one on one. From helping employees with questions to various customer service roles, I feel best when I’m able to network, make contacts and build relationships. With experience in business and a desire to help others with their marketing, we’ve created a recipe for success.

Kelly Davis Strausbaugh
Vice President & Director of Marketing
With a love for talking, networking and meeting people, I enjoy writing and creating content that makes people think, smile and get excited. Thanks to several great mentors, friends and contacts, I’ve had the opportunity to work in industries including legislative, agriculture, nonprofit, agency and corporate organizations. I’m a strong writer with a passion for combining press releases and traditional media with social media to strike a balance that’s appreciated by any age group. My children have inspired me to push myself and be the best I can be – as cliche as it sounds, it’s true.
