About Us

Black Frog Marketing was created with the sole purpose of providing small businesses something they thought simply was not available to them due to their size, marketing management.

The ability to manage a company’s complete visual exposure is a powerful asset for any business, but often that ability is not available to small businesses. The cost is too great for a dedicated employee, and the quantity of work is too small for a traditional agency to cost effectively manage. This puts the small business into a situation where an inconsistency grows between the many forms of visual presentation. The website, company and product brochures, mailings, e-blasts, promotional products; they all start to take on a look of their own, one that is inconsistent with the overall desired image of the company. This can develop into a snowball effect as the gap widens, ultimately producing an inconsistent brand identity, while wasting money and potential business in the process.

    Our goals are simple:


• Completely understand the clients needs, goals, resources, and market place.

• Provide our customers with sincere and honest service that ensures the longevity of our relationship with them.

• Provide creative and effective marketing material at a fair and competitive price.

• Establish options and programs for the customer that will enhance their ROI.

• Present all products and services individually, so that every plan is catered specifically for the customers’ needs.



About the owner

Bringing a creative approach, in a methodical fashion, is what has underlined his success, and that of his clients.

An avid BMW motorcyclist, Doug actively belongs to  The BMW Motorcycle Owners of America,  The BMW Riders Association, and  The BMW Motorrad Club Northern Illinois. His passion sends him to rallies and camp outs across the nation, carrying everything needed for an adventure piled high on the bike. This thirst for adventure and travel has his eyes set on the big prize, a 12,000 mile, 3 week trip from the southern most city Key West, Florida to the northern most city in the US, Deadhorse Alaska. Some day...
