Who Is Henry GrinerMy name is Henry Griner owner of Mission Springs Marketing LLC located in Elk River, Minnesota, Redding, California and other places we travel for ministry and family. 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. From 2008 to 2012 I was a speaker at several of Jeff Mills’ Internet Marketing Workshops focusing on Project Management and WordPress Training. If you are looking for a speaker for your local business group or organization to present information on topics such as; Business Branding Changes in The New Digital World, What Can Social Media Do For Your Online Business Growth, Why You Should Use WordPress for Business, How to Add Live Streaming & Pre-Recorded Video to Business Websites, please contact me.
Business PlanI'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 or Panera Bread Restaurants or for prospects out of the area we do a phone call and screen share of information. 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. In July 2016 my wife Leslie and I moved to Redding, CA to attend the ministry training school at Bethel Church. We plan to return to our home in Elk River, MN in the summer of 2017 after we complete the two year ministry training program. My business allows me to work from anywhere in the world with my laptop and cellphone where I have an Internet connection. 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. 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.
Personal InformationMarried to my wife Leslie for 45 years as of November 2015. We have 5 adult children and 3 grandchildren. Leslie and I have lived in Elk River, Minnesota for most of our married lives. We are founding members of our church here, Living Waters Church, and very active in the ministry of our church. After many years of trying to start and run my own business in many different areas from photography, health & nutrition, solar energy & energy conservation with earth sheltered homes, long distance phone services, restoration services for kitchens & bathrooms and a few more along the way, I came to realize several years ago that I was born to be an entrepreneur. I always wondered why I never seemed to fit in to the role of an employee in any company for too long. My heart's passion is to run my own business and help others to do the same. I want to help others be successful in their business ventures by using my knowledge and skills in the area of business branding, digital marketing, online business marketing and building websites. 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
