Website Creation

We focus on designing websites that meet each your needs, solve problems and work with your overall brand. Solutions we design and develop are consistent with your branding and often include e-commerce, custom web applications and mobile experiences. We look beyond just creating a website and it can become a tool that generates leads.

Video Production

We love helping clients tell their story through video to expand their reach locally, regionally and globally. Our process begins with strategizing your goal and main messaging and then laying out the script, storyboarding and moving into full-scale production for web and TV.

Marketing / Retainer

How do you navigate the sea of social media advertising? We steer clients every day to help them connect with and grow their audience. This means we only recommend the social media outlets that make sense for your business and spend advertising dollars based on what will bring you the biggest return.

Digital Marketing Redefined.

At GT Business Design there are no secrets. We create unique and effective marketing solutions for your business with the full transparency of an in-house marketing department. Our goal is not just for successful web, video and marketing projects but for an explanation of WHY we are creating something.

We are a collection of specialists focused on results driven, digital marketing in Traverse City and around the country. We were founded on the notion that even the smallest idea can gain traction and grow into something, well, awesome. We believe in two key pillars: a hands-on approach and educating our clients on what we do and why we do it.

Let’s work together.

Whiteboard Doodles

Do you doodle? We happen to have excellent doodlers in our office and you will see their artwork as you visit the office. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the whiteboard in Ryan’s office or the one in the chill space. If it’s blank it won’t be for long. Who are the doodlers? Jonathan and Joey
