Your Brand’s Best Friend

We specialize in offering social media and marketing services designed to build awareness and customer connection to small businesses. Clark Dog Media takes your unique business story and turns it into stand out messaging. We will develop a clear and consistent voice for your business that speaks directly to your kind of customers.

We understand that results are what matter. At Clark Dog Media, we use social media platforms as business tools, tracking performance of individual campaigns and adjusting course when needed.

Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn require specialized knowledge to use effectively. In our experience, most people don’t fully understand the intricacies involved in successfully reaching thousands of people.  Couple this complexity with the fact that the rules are always changing and it is easy to see why most people find using social media for their business challenging.

Our clients come from diverse industries – realtors, non-profits, professional services, trades, and other service-based businesses. We honor exclusivity – we will only take on one type of business in a local geographic area. In other words, we won’t be working for your competition.

The Team

Terri Nystrom, Founder

Terri brings a unique combination of corporate sales and marketing experience coupled with her own history of small business ownership.

Her corporate career included responsibility for a $150 million dollar sales organization. After leaving corporate life, she became the owner of a local franchise operation. Not only did she manage the day-to-day operations of the business she also built the customer base from zero to thriving.

Bottom line, Terri understands sales and she knows how to build and market new products. Hiring Terri is a bit like hiring a VP of Sales and Marketing and a Business Consultant all rolled into one. She gets it and she understands that to help you she needs to first understand you, your business, your goals, and the market.

Led by experience, informed by research, and driven to serve, Terri Nystrom is a powerhouse.

Clark, Top Dog

Our namesake, Clark, was a rescue dog. How he and Terri met is a story that deserves telling.

Terri was looking for a dog. She went through hundreds of photos of available dogs but kept coming back to Clark. He wasn’t at all what she was looking for but doggonit (pun totally intended!) she just couldn’t get him out of her mind. Something about him was just right.

The connection to Clark Dog Media is this – something about Clark stood out, something about his unique personality. This is what we do for our clients – create compelling images coupled with clear calls to action that communicate your unique story to potential customers. Those messages can reach potential customers at any time; after all, you never know when someone is ready to fall in love.
