Hi, my name is Whit Whitley. I’m the owner of Start Smart Now. I’ve been helping people with digital marketing for over 15 years. While my business has certainly changed over the years, a few things have remained the same—my commitment to get the job done right the first time and to build lasting relationships with my clients. The acorn logo represents my philosophy about digital marketing. The acorn has the potential to grow into a mighty oak tree under the right conditions. That’s how digital marketing works. It takes real know-how to create the “right conditions” to help your business grow and reach its digital marketing goals. I’d like to invite you to contact me about becoming a client if you’re looking for a digital marketing agency that will take the time to understand you and help grow your business.

Hello! I’m John Hutcherson and I have been involved with website design and digital marketing part time for more than 15 years. Three years ago, I took my skills to the next level to become a professional website designer, SEO & digital marketing expert. I joined the Start Smart Now team in 2014 and have loved working with Whit and clients like you. There’s nothing I enjoy more than helping clients succeed by creating a stunning website or digital marketing strategy. I focus on friendly service, positive attitude, and making sure I do a great job that the client loves. I value communication – especially in a digital work environment. Always feel free to reach out and let us know if you have any questions, updates or requests. Contact us any time!

Hi, I’m Christa Bickhart. I’ve been a graphic designer for 6 years. In that time, I have gained valuable expertise in logo design, photo editing, web design, and front-end web experience. Since 2017, I have been working with the Start Smart Now team doing graphic design and WordPress development. Client satisfaction is of paramount importance to me; the most rewarding part of what I do is provide clients with a friendly and positive experience from start to finish. I look forward to putting my skills, professionalism, and attention to detail to work for you!
