David Howse is a Marketing Rock Star! I had an important project, the 100for100.me campaign, that needed not only a marketing expert but someone who could take all the assets of the campaign and put a plan behind them, implement a strategy, and finally work with me to take care all the tactical aspects - and all in 14 days! Not only did David do it all he did most of it while we sat together in our meetings. I would explain a concept and before I knew it he would say, "you mean this?," �then turn his computer toward me and everything I wanted was ready to go. He can take an idea and turn it in to a story in seconds which may turn in to what your website menu needs to be, how you will communicate with your clients, or even a full blown story printed in the Calgary Herald. By the time the Herald article happened I was getting used to being amazed by David. As a business owner you have these choices, do it yourself and never know better, hire a big marketing firm that will eat your whole operations budget, hire someone who calls themselves a "marketer"� and delivers anything but quality marketing, or hire David Howse and get a service that no marketing company can give at a price that is truly an investment in your own future. It's simple, just call David. - Andrea Kladar
I was referred to David Howse Marketing through Cawston & Associates for whom I manage Expert Witnesses relating to bankruptcy cases. Bill's testimonial about David (below) speaks highly of David's creativity but I think that is a complete undersell. Sure David is incredibly creative but so was van Gogh - yet he died a poor man. In the 8 months that I have been working with David, my client based has doubled which has directly affected my income. Not only did David increase my business by 200% but he did it with less than half of the money I was spending on a telephone directory company.
Creativity is one thing David is great at but he is also one of those rare people who is also good with finance and statistics. As a fully licensed psychologist I really appreciate someone who can run a correlation analysis on various marketing data.
With David I have a whole new perspective on what a good business website is, the importance of ranking on Google for relevant search terms, how to effectively communicate to prospective clients; David is an amazing writer. David also has strong negotiation skills when dealing with other marketing vendors, and he is a really fun guy to be around.
David asked for testimonial and I found myself not wanting to stop writing about all the wonderful things about him, here are a few last points:
- I would talk about your follow-through
- your attention to detail
- your dependability
- problem-solving skills
- I would talk about your integrity.

Hi, my name is Doctor Chantelle Drobot and I am a business instructor at Mount Royal University as well as a private business owner in Calgary. I met David in March of 2011 through a mutual business contact.
David came highly recommended as THE go to guy for Search Engine Optimization in all of Alberta. I was told that David had a long record of enabling his clients to rank #1 on Google for the search terms they wanted. Prior to meeting David, I had no idea what SEO or Search Engine Optimization was. David took my business website from the bottom of page six to the top of page one of Google. Trust me, I now know the value of good SEO.
After a few conversations with David I got a sense that he was "gifted" with an amazing knowledge of marketing and internet marketing. I invited David to guest lecture at Mount Royal University. Well, he simply came in and blew everyone's socks off.
He was that good! When the semester ended and I received the student evaluation forms, well over half of the students mentioned David's lecture as a high-point of the course.
Without reservation, I highly recommend David Howse as THE guy to do your Search Engine Optimization, Internet Marketing, and Marketing in General.

David Howse - Matterhorn PR - Its been a blast - as a friend and a media guru appreciate your catering to my stylings and exposure allowances and never letting the media set the pace.

David is a creative genius, there's no doubt about that!
We started working with David back in May of 2007. In 2010, under David's guidance, we ramped up our marketing efforts and the results have paid off more than ten-fold.
David's breadth of knowledge was key when we were connecting the dots of our marketing message. We are Calgary-based tax consultants serving all of Canada who bring the best possible resolution to bankrupt business, near bankrupt business, and businesses who are feeling the heat from the Canada Revenue Agency.
Taxation and corporate governance is a complex world and David took us through the whole marketing process with the same competency and professionalism we give our own clients. Do not hesitate to call us to confirm our statement about David Howe Marketing or, as David pointed out, to inquire how we can protect your business before undesirable tax-related issues occur.
"Years ago, I first met David when I hired him to help me do some marketing for a business which I have since sold. Even then, it was obvious that there was no one in southern Alberta who could match his understanding and expertise in marketing. Now, as a business consultant myself, David and I have been collaborating on client projects, and I get to have a front-row seat to watch David in action. He's driven by results. Over and over I have seen him get the kind of results that other marketers dream of, the kind of results that just aren't normally available to business people.
I couldn`t recommend David more highly. If he says he can help you successfully market your business, it`s because he can." - Donna Wetterstrand, Business Consultant, Victoria BC
"I have dramatically increased the profit margins in my small business by purchasing in China. One product went from a wholesale purchase price of $750 (from a Canadian distributor) down to $200 in China, and that includes shipping costs! It's the best move I ever made. Buying directly from China has kept my business competitive, and now I'm sorry that I didn't start sooner. You don't have to be "big business" to benefit from David's purchasing methods." - Yvonne Verge, small business owner, Lethbridge, Alberta
A telephone directory sales person, in the process of asking me to renew my ad in their directory, told me that "search engine optimization will cost you $15,000! So directories are still a better form of advertising."� David did the job for $250 and my website traffic increased 40% within days.
- Darryl Moore, Owner, FloorRight Lethbridge, Alberta.
David has taken my website to a whole new level. In less than 30 days after implementing a new marketing strategy, my website traffic increased 400%. Not only did I notice the improvement but the owner of the company that I use to host my website called to say how amazing David is at website marketing.

I trust David's marketing expertise. Not only do I use his services for Evergreen Golf Centre but I also had him guest lecture the college Retail Management class that I teach. David is a great resource for Lethbridge businesses.
