About Us

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.

If you want to see what we are capable of, check out our portfolio and get in touch with us.

We look forward to hearing about your project and working with you to create a strong on and offline brand awareness.

    “After we had a conversation on Skype and I felt immediately connected and I knew Natalie would understand what I want in my website.”

    Working with Natalie was super easy. She is so efficient, knowledgeable and professional. She has lots of patience and it’s great to work with her. She made me feel at ease and explained and showed every possibility to develop the great website I wanted. She is accountable and delivers to the highest and always on time. I can not recommend her enough. ”
