You’ll hear back from us, with a thorough answer. Need something done quickly? We’ll do our best to gather our resources to get it done for you as expediently as possible. On a tight budget? We treat your money as we do our own, finding resources that present the best value and meet your goals.
We function as an outsourced Marketing Department – it’s like paying for a fractional share of a highly educated, experienced, and dedicated Marketing Team – paying just for what you need, with no need to hire full time personnel on staff. We work to get to know you, your organization, and your customers. We then work with you to create a marketing strategy you’ll feel great about putting into action in the marketplace. Once we have a solid marketing plan in place, we handle the marketing implementation for you, just like your internal Marketing Department would do.
We use the following methodology in everything we do:
Whether the project is a year-long SEO effort, or a quick image banner for your website, we take into consideration the market you need to reach. We want all our efforts to benefit your brand and your business, so that’s why we always start by assessing exactly what you need and what results you expect to get from it. We do this via in-depth consultation and research.
We then plan and propose the best solution to your online marketing challenges. With your approval, we launch the plan and monitor its progress. We tweak it according to the results and repeat the process.
Every one of our experienced professionals has a degree in their field, and has actually worked in responsible marketing roles on the client side. We didn’t just decide to hang up a marketing sign outside our door one day. We know what it’s like to have responsibility for revenue growth, deadlines to meet, personnel and agencies to manage, and more work to do than humanly possible between meetings. Our marketing company is founded on being an invaluable assistance to you in terms of getting things done. Here are a few of our key players:

Tiffany Lardomita, Account Manager
Tiffany Lardomita is an avid reader, marketer, and educator with nearly 15 years of experience in online content development.
In 2007, while teaching personal marketing at a career college, Tiffany “cracked the code” of lifelong learning and taught herself web design. She worked full-time during the day helping over 400 students get jobs, and spent nights as a student herself, learning everything possible about online marketing for businesses.
After building two successful websites, and excited about her newly-developed skill, she began facilitating workshops in Northeast Ohio to share her online marketing knowledge. During that time, she spoke at conferences all around the city and built several beautiful websites for business owners that expanded their reach and generated revenue.
Never truly leaving her higher ed roots, Tiffany went on to work in two education startups doing business development and marketing. A series of coincidences helped her find her way to Front Burner Marketing to manage client accounts and lead the launch of our training division.
TIffany is highly creative and always wears a smile on her face, bringing positive energy to everything she does. Outside of work, you'll find her cooking restaurant-quality meals, making elaborate pieces of jewelry, or daydreaming on her deck. She lives with her teenage son in Macedonia, and is engaged to marry a smart salesman who smiles as much as she does.
