ABOUT: HOW WE CAME TO SERVE YOU
MBSTIA (Marketing and Business Strategies to Impact Awareness) was formed in 2002 out of a desire to educate, promote and consult with independent artists.
We are a team of creatives who all come from various parts of the arts/entertainment industry, either as artists or people who have worked with artists. As we put on workshops and consulted with artists, we realized that many of them lacked the marketing materials necessary to promote themselves and decided this was a great niche for us to step into and take our skills to help others.
In 2006, after some company re-structuring, MBSTIA emerged as a multi-service company providing website development, customized web and print graphic design, social media promotion/strategy and marketing consulting. In 2009 we opened our Canadian sister company Small Business Website Canada to help businesses in the Canadian market. In 2017 we opened a sister firm in Uganda and launched our budget friendly One Page Website offering.
We look forward to hearing about your project and working with you to create a strong on and offline brand awareness.

“Natalie helped us build a brand new, mobile responsive presence for Queer KIFF. The site she built took content from our existing website and she added new video display features, an integrated mailing list and online ticket reservation system. Working with Natalie via email and WhatsApp was convenient and easy. I recommend her company’s services highly!”
