As you may have guessed by now, I am the owner of Murph’s Marketing. I got into marketing through a close friend who noticed that for all of my life, I have been marketing…but not in the “usual” way.
He convinced me to follow my own path, to help others who are like me, those who the mainstream ignore or make ugly faces at. You know, former and recovering addicts, folks with tats, people just trying to get by in this fucked up world.
So…that is what I did. Am doing.
I am active in helping others who are spiritual but see that religion is not the answer. Who see that AA, NA and all the other “A’s” are failing to help. And like those programs, marketing firms ignore people like us. They see us as somehow less-than-people…as not worthy of their time. So fuck them. We can do it ourselves. Together, we can achieve great things.
Why Murph’s Marketing?
Marketing your business, whether it is a one-person operation or something bigger is simple. Marketing is just about connecting people. Helping people. Helping them see that they matter and that they too can find what they are looking for.
That is what we do at Murph’s Marketing.
Because we know your market better than the high-falootin firms, we can talk to your customers like you do. We can answer their questions and help them see how your business can help them.
We are here to help anyone who does not like mainstream marketing…who want to push the envelope…who want to do things their way.
We do this in a few ways.
Let me tell you a little about how we can help you with each.
Whatever business you have, you need a website. But the traditional marketing companies charge way more than they should. They do because they can. They do because they do not want business from anyone who cannot afford to pay their high rates. That is discrimination! But it is legal discrimination. So fuck them. Use us.
We charge the lowest possible rates on websites and will work with you. We get it. Times are tough. It is hard having a small business and even harder affording a website. So, if you need one, let’s talk. We have plenty of ways to help without killing your wallet.
Content for Websites
Once your website is built, you need to keep adding content. Content is words, pictures, videos and sounds. But all the content needs to be backed up by words.
We help in two ways:
- We keep rates as low as possible to help you grow your business.
- If you want us to teach you to build your website yourself, we will.
We want you to grow and succeed. We want you to because we are in this together.
Social media is not as hard as many make it out to be. One of the best ways we help people like us is by teaching them how to use social media to grow their business. In fact, for those who run a one-man business, Facebook is one of the best places to find new customers. But ya gotta do it right.
For a very low cost, we can build your Facebook business (or other Social Media) page and teach you how to run it right.
Using the tools Google has created it getting complicated. But again, we can help you here too. If you want to do Google Ads, we are happy to help, but know that this can be costly, especially if your website is not up to speed. So, the first thing we do is help you make sure your website is right.
Then, we can run ads, set up your Google Analytics and send you regular reports (daily, weekly, monthly). The reports will help you grow your business online and if you need help understanding them, we are happy to teach you that as well.
As you can see, we are NOT like other marketing firms. The traditional marketers DO NOT want you to know how simple much of what they do really is. That way, they can keep charging stupid ass rates and block out people who need them, but cannot afford them.
Videos are one of the best ways to market right now. People love watching videos. Hell, look how many people are watching really stupid stuff on Netflix now because of being stuck at home with nothing to do. People will watch ANYTHING just to kill the boredom.
And you can make videos for your business right now if you have a smart phone. And, from that phone, you can add them to YouTube…then to your website.
It is super simple. We can manage your YouTube and add them to the site for a small fee or teach you how to do it yourself.
We also have access to a great marketing company that provides text message marketing. How does it work?
All you will need to do is to get phone numbers from your customers. Then, you can ask them to opt in to your marketing. Most do. From there, depending on what package you choose, you can
- Build your online reputation on Google, Yelp, Faceook or any of dozens of rating sites
- Send them texts to remind them of appointments
- Let them earn customer loyalty rewards and send them marketing messages
You already know that using text messages is a great way to build business, but did you also know that for most small companies, it is super affordable? Sure, there are companies out there charging thousands for this service…but not us. We have the lowest rates in the country.
We even have access to small business lending…even if you have poor credit…and most of the time funds can be provided same day.
Plus, if you take credit cards or want to take credit cards, we have access to multiple systems. And, we can even save you the processing fees…something no other marketing firm in Lubbock can say. We have an exclusive in this.
Need an ATM at your shop? We got it.
Looking for someone to process high risk products like CBD or alcohol? No problem.
Want a great CBD product to sell in your business? Yep, we even have access to this.
How about payroll services or POS systems?
Point is, at Murph’s Marketing, we do not take anything off the table until if falls off the table. If you need something for marketing your small business, we either have it or will try to find it.
Murph’s Marketing Lubbock, Texas…Here for YOU.
I launched this to help people just like us. I have a small team that supports this operation and because of these friendships, we can help you with nearly anything you need. We are low overhead and care about our customers – we are NOT interested in helping the “Church” crowd, those who so often look down on us and treat us like we are too sinful to grace their doorway. You know the kind, they show up at the restaurant where you work, fill the booths and never leave a tip.
THOSE folks are NOT our customers and we will send them elsewhere. OUR customers are like us. Outlaws and outlyers, addicts, single-parents, folks struggling to put food on the table, dreaming of a better life for us and our kids, working any job just to get by.
We know the struggle. We know the pain. We know how hard it can be. So we help. We work with you, not against you. That is who we are.
Do, if you need something, let us know. You will be surprised at how much we can help.
