What Makes Us Different

Back2Basics, LLC is a brand development agency and is a small business brand's advocate in the market.

We work with all businesses and small non-profits across the United States, but our core client is the Midwest-based true small business owner who needs help making their brand presence known on a smaller budget. Additionally, these businesses typically find bigger agencies to be either too structured for their needs and goals; providing either too much or too little in way of guidance and personalized service becuase of large systematic practices, or too expensive so the brand owner or brand manager just can't meet their required budgets.

We offer a personalized solution and candid conversations about the business, their mission and goals, their current abilities and resources, their temperment for technology and more. Then we cater solutions and resources to the client; wherever possible. We devise a strategy they can afford and sets digestable expectations for all parties. Ultimately, we provide obtainable results within their structure and one they can understand, hold fast to, and make incremental steps forward from.

We do NOT hijack a client's brand in order to service that brand online or leave them confused about their assets at the end of a working relationship.

We are certified social media managers through Digital Marketers, certified partners with YEXT, recognized by Minneapolis Small Businesses for small business web design, and recently WBENC certified.

Each solution is custom designed to an individual client's needs and budgets. And, all solutions are designed to fulfill a need; fill in a crack in their brand armor or help expand their brand awareness seemlessly along with other tactics or strategies they may already have in place.

We work with leading experts across a wide variety of digital marketing veins to help construct the best solution for an individual client's goals. We take the worry out of the research by vetting vendors on behalf of a client and then presenting them with thoughtfully devised solutiosn options to meet their needs and goals. This saves them time, money and frustration. We have even partnered with other agencies and individual marketing consultants already working with a client in an effort to help cover their bases or enhance solutions already in place.

We earn our clients' trust through excellence in service, and we continue to expand our industry connections to help better serve our clients.

What did you like best?

I really was impressed by their professionalism and their commitment to my business needs and wants.

What did you like least?

As we started our working relationship, I realized that Back to Basics had a wealth of knowledge on these topics and that I was woefully inexperienced in my understanding of how they affected my business.

Describe your overall experience.

It was truly a wonderful experience working with Back to Basics. They were very detail oriented and provided me with monthly reports showing the progress that was made for my business. Back to Basics proves that satisfaction is guaranteed in how they treated me and delivered on their promise.

What did you like best?

Tanya is honest and dedicated and never “sold” me anything I didn’t need. She made me feel I was a priority even when they were at their busiest. They even helped with business card, flyer and poster designs for us!

What did you like least?

There was nothing I disliked about Tanya, her business ethics, or skills

Describe your overall experience.

Back2Basics, LLC worked with my catering business from the very start. I told Tanya about my business, my vision and what we needed, and she did the rest. She managed the whole project from the rebranding of our company name, to the design of our business logo and new website. It was awesome! We started out with under a multi-ownership business, but when I went on my own and changed by business name, Back2Basics took on the rebranding strategies so I didn’t have to worry about it. The new logo design and website fit me perfectly. Back2Basics also took on our outreach online over the years. We had a small budget, but their management of our Google profile, social media and website content, Tanya and her team were able to get me to the top of search results as well as a steady following on Facebook. It was in knowing I didn’t have to track services and solutions down when we needed to reach customers in another way and the freedom to focus on running my business versus marketing my business that I appreciated the most. I didn’t have to do anything with my website because Back2Basics managed all the updates and maintenance every month and I just reaped the benefits. I would recommend Back2Basics for any of your branding needs from logo to design to website design, from website optimization to blogging, from social media management and email marketing to online brand integrity management. Thank you for all you did for us from launch to retirement.

What did you like best?

Back2Basics created my digital logo and website. I didn’t want the regular money type logo... I’m not regular or normal in anyway. I wanted my logo and website to evoke the feeling you will have when working with Carefree Bookkeeping. The team at Back2Basics also helped refine my story and message to my customers and readers. They can take the words you want to say, clean them up, enhance them with added imagery and links, and optimize them in a way that makes sense to readers and appeal to search engines. When you meet with new clients do they say, “I love your website”? And, do you imagine that’s why they’re meeting with you? I get this all the time. The image and website Back2Basics created for me opens doors for me and gets me ahead of other bookkeepers in the area. I highly recommend Tanya Troska and Back2Basics as the team you want working on your SEO, Social Media, Website or overall Image and Branding.

What did you like least?
