About S.C.R.A.T.C.H.

S.C.R.A.T.C.H. Marketing was developed with the client in mind. We designed the process to deliver the entire process in one friendly package.

The Designer

Susan Middendorf, a former corporate professional turned all around entrepreneur and philantropist with strong roots in process improvement engineering and real estate now has her "sites" on web design and develop.

Why web? Being a firm believer in the importance of learning and change, Susan realized one steadily growing key element missing from her skill set was understanding the power of the web. After doing some research and a burning desire to explore her more creative side, she decided it was a must and enrolled in graphic and web design at Platt College in San Diego.

Susan achieved her associates in graphic design in 2008 and will be finishing her Bachelors of Science Media Arts by the summer 2009. If you would like to see more, take a look at her resume.

Susan is the daughter of a Korean and Vietnam War Veteran and is a proud member of the first eUnit for the American Legion Auxiliary. Since becoming a member of the Auxilary in December 2005, Susan has achieved some of the organizations highest awards. In her first year she received a National Award for Children and Youth and in 2007, Susan was Department of California Auxiliary Member of the Year.

Why is it important to have all these resources in one place when dealing with your marketing needs?

First, since we handle it all under one roof, you can be sure that all the parts that go into a successful marketing campaign are compatible. Many times we have clients come to us who started with someone else for their graphic design, only to find that the file was not prepared properly for printing on promotional products. They incurred an unexpected cost to convert the graphic into the proper file and this could have been avoided by coming to SCRATCH in the first place. We have a 1st rate graphic designer in house ready to put her creativity to work for you.

Second, when it comes to websites, there are two schools of thought.

1. The Web Graphic Designer – this person is obsessed with creating a very pretty site that is appealing to the eyes and has a bunch of flash images and moving objects perhaps with sound and all kinds of other tricks.
2. The Search Engine Optimizer – This person is focused solely on how the site ranks. He/She sees all the pretty flash as a distraction that hinders the ranking of the site.
Many times, a business owner will hire a web site developer to build them a site and once it is done and posted, they wait for traffic to deliver leads…and wait….and wait. Has this happened to you? Have you been left wondering why your site is not getting traffic? Or even worse, if it is getting traffic, why is it not generating business for you? Websites have one main purpose. Many think that one purpose is to generate business, but that would be wrong.

The main purpose of a website is to deliver a message. It is then up to that message and the form of it’s delivery to generate the business.

SCRATCH Marketing develops all parts of your marketing plan to work interchangeably. We help you develop your marketing message if you don’t already have one, work with you to get the image right for what you want to portray to your potential clients, and then create a complete campaign including a properly designed website consisting of proper graphics and Search Engine Optimization qualities that will get traffic to your site, be appealing to your prospective client when they get to your site, and then deliver a compelling message that will mesmerize your clients and convince them that you are the expert to deal with in your field.
