Let Mission Springs Marketing Make
Online Business Easy For You!
“You should spend your time doing what you do best… running your business. But sometimes that is not easy to do in the new Online World where marketing tools and systems change as fast as they do today.”
What is Your Total Brand Blueprint?
Many business owners started out with a Business Plan for their business but it is outdated and does not reflect the New Commerce of the online world. If your business plan is more than 3 years old or, it never included details for building your Total Brand in the online world… you don’t really have a plan and you are probably finding yourself “flying by the seat of your pants.”
I offer consulting services to help you design your Strategic Business Blueprint that incorporates your Total Brand… not just your website and SEO programs… but we offer those services and many more also. We ONLY work on your website, social media marketing and other steps after we create your Strategic Business Blueprint.

Who Is Henry Griner
My name is Henry Griner owner of Mission Springs Marketing LLC located in Elk River, Minnesota and currently in Redding, California. I’m an Internet Marketing Technology Consultant and Strategic Online Business Developer helping local business owners to build and grow their online businesses.
This website, Mission Springs Marketing, is one of my business sites focused on Strategic Online Business Development, Business Branding and Designing of WordPress CMS (content management system) websites for my customers along with a full spectrum of a Strategic Digital Marketing Services.
For the past 20 plus years I have worked in Information Technology as a technology consultant and Information Technology Manager. I got started on the Internet in about 1992 using a Tandy computer and chatting with folks around the world in text mode only.
In 1994 I started to learn to create web pages using Notepad and Netscape at a local college that I attended where I was taking a business administration course. Within three months I was asked to teach classes in the continuing education department of the college. No one else on staff at that time had the knowledge of the Internet that I had. A couple months later, I was asked to teach my Internet classes at another college.
Over the years since then I have worked full-time in Information Technology while doing technology consulting with others and building websites for them including building the first website for my local bank, The Bank of Elk River.
In 2005 I decided that it was time to start my own Internet based business. After spending so many years helping others to find solutions to their technology and Internet needs, I decided that it was time for me to put my skills to use and build my own business.
Since February 2008 I have been operating Mission Springs Marketing full-time providing consulting and design services to many customers. From 2008 to 2012 I helped a friend of mine with his online business as a speaker at several of Jeff Mills’ Internet Marketing Workshops focusing on Project Management and WordPress Training.
I’ve built my business to offer the best consulting and design services for local business owners of small to medium size businesses. I do not have a regular office with high overhead costs and I don’t have full-time staff with the added markups needed to offer my services. I determined to build my business to be low overhead and portable while still offering my customers excellent services not found with many other website design and SEO companies.
After reviewing a prospective customer’s Strategic Marketing Blueprint Questionnaire I meet with them at their business locations or in one of my local “offices” like Dunn Bros Coffee, Starbucks Coffee or Panera Bread Restaurants or for prospects out of the area we do a phone call and screen share of information using Skype. If I see that they fit my criteria and we reach an agreement to proceed we sign an initial consulting services agreement and my team goes into research mode.
With our children moving out across the USA to other locations I wanted my business to be portable so that I can work with new customers outside of Minnesota area. My wife and I also love to travel for ministry outside the USA and this business gives us the freedom to do that.
I only work with 1 or 2 new customers each month for business branding consulting, website design and multiple customers for digital marketing services. Most of the work for my customers is handled by my team of national and international experts in the various areas of service that I offer. I love to build smaller, simple WordPress websites for my local customers myself so I try to work on 1-2 each month just to keep my fingers nimble.
One very important skill that I bring to my customers comes from my background with working in the area of Internet Marketing. Internet Marketing, as I refer to it here, relates to doing business online without being a local business owner and have a store or office location. I was blessed by being able to team up with my friend Jeff Mills for over 4 years helping with his home based Internet Marketing business. We traveled around the USA to many Internet Marketing conferences and workshops where I met and learned from some of the top online marketers in the world. I bring this experience and knowledge along with great business connections to the local business owners that I now focus on.
Married to my wife Leslie for 45 years as of November 2015. We have 5 adult children and 4 grandchildren. Leslie and I have lived in Elk River, Minnesota for most of our married lives. Currently we are living in Redding, California while we are attending a ministry training school. In the summer of 2017 we plan to return home to Elk River. We are founding members of our church in Elk River, Living Waters Church, and very active in the ministry of our church.
For me being a businessman and running my own business does not mean that I don’t have someone to report to. Each of my customers is important to me from a personal as well as from a business standpoint. I’m here to serve you but also, I do this as onto my Lord Jesus Christ. Colossians 3:23-24
