Heather Stephens

Website Designer & Marketing Strategist

I am not just a web designer. I am a designer who has spent 10+ years traipsing through the Internet marketing trenches. I have a degree in fine art and have been practicing my WordPress wizardry for 6 years.

I have worked for multi-million dollar brands, small businesses, and creative entrepreneurs. I also have some serious expertise in lead generation, content marketing, social media & SEO.

A client once said I was like a web design swiss army knife (#allthetools) with marketing moxie. Another client said I was her Website Fairy Godmother - making her dreams come true.I specialize in beautiful websites and effective marketing systems that save time and make money.

I can’t cook. I can’t sing. And I have a knack of finding myself in hilarious embarrassing situations. I am goal focused, excited by a challenge and love figuring out how things work.

I am also a wife of 22 years and mom of 3 and I'm learning to play guitar with two of my kids and my husband.

FAQ About Heather & Wise Owl Marketing

How long have you been in business?

Wise Owl Marketing was started in May of 2016. I was on a mission to find a way to use my skills to make a difference for others and to be able to stay home with my 3 kids.

Who Makes Up the Wise Owl Marketing Team? 

I am the main plate spinner here at Wise Owl Marketing, but I have lots of help from my family! My oldest daughter, Jocelynn, is Director of POP: Productivity Organization and Pearls. She helps me stay organized, create marketing content for clients, test sites, etc. She also wears pearls...every day. My husband, Wes, is a key player in my business, helping me to make big decisions and pushing me to go outside my comfort zone. 

What do you love about your business?

I build websites & provide marketing strategy/coaching for creative entrepreneurs and coaches. I LOVE working with entrepreneurs and other dreamers. Helping them achieve success in their businesses is the greatest feeling in the world. Well, the greatest aside from being a mom! 🙂

What makes Wise Owl Marketing different?

I do have a degree in fine art in design, but I am primarily a marketer. I know having a gorgeous website is important to my clients, but that's the easy part. There are a lot of gorgeous websites that don't convert visitors to leads. I design sites that get my clients more leads so they can help more people and make more money!

Where are you located? 

I work out of my home office in Northern Illinois, as well as on the road when we travel. My office window overlooks the backyard so I can keep an eye on my 9-year-old son and his friends on the swingset. If we have the pleasure of connecting by phone you may hear my son and his friends running around, decked full-out in their cardboard armor for a neighborhood Nerf gun war. It's not exactly the quietest working environment but it is exactly everything I dreamed working from home would be.

Are you ready for a website and marketing funnel that gets clients & grows your business?

We’d love to help make your vision a reality.
