Lindeblad Piano Restoration is a 100 year-old, fourth generation, family-owned company that restores some of the world’s finest vintage pianos. Our first discussions focused on graphic design for web and print. With such a fascinating story to tell, we were able to do so much more. We helped focus the brand, increased site speed by 19%, began online ad management, social media marketing, and a massive web site redesign. Our efforts led to a 13% reduction in online ad spend while increasing year-over-year leads by 14%. We’re not done yet.

Running a small business can feel like running on a hamster wheel. For Ewald Services, the grand vision of running a yard care services empire wasn’t getting any closer. We listened to their goals then studied the operation. By refreshing his brand, developing service cost models, re-focusing the marketing, and streamlining operations with new software and a new VoIP phone system we helped increase sales 40% in a single year. This has freed them to invest in a new venture, and more importantly, start a new family.

Dr. Kory Spear told us, “I want to add a CrossFit gym, and wellness center”, and we got excited.  After branding the new business, finding real estate, and providing funding for a build-out and new equipment, we coordinated and celebrated a grand opening, complete with a live-streamed competition with a gym in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The new CrossFit Supercell is growing quickly, and with Thinker’s backing, has access to the managed IT, marketing, and business management resources of a larger company.
