BusinessServices for Small Businesses
Got a small business? Mark can help you! Combining his dynamic personality with his background of pursuing excellence, Mark brings a unique one-of-a-kind quality to all that he does.
Graduating with Highest Distinction, Mark earned two undergraduate degrees, in three years, with straight-As, in Business Administration and in Accounting.
From there, he started off as a Controller for a company in Portland, Maine. When his successful trend analysis accurately forecast the need for additional outside capital, a subsequent investor bought his job as condition for the investment. At that point, Mark became self-employed, offering his enigmatic and enthusiastic services of accounting, marketing, and more for small businesses. Mark also developed a number of personal micro-businesses too. Truly, self-employment has been Mark's life ever since.
When the internet became "the next big thing" in the mid-1990s, Mark immersed himself in web-design and using web-sites for personal business. In 2000, he developed a new brand, HelloMark, as an easy way for clients to quickly find his business services online - a brand name that instantly demonstrates his "marketing-savvy" skills. Hence, the tagline: "To say Hello to Mark, just say... HelloMark.com."
In 2001, the business was expanded to include webservices. Using the newly developed brand, HelloMark.NET was established to help small businesses be able to use the internet for their marketing. From the very start, clients were offered a full-service menu of the full range of online needs, from domain management to web-design to webhosting to so much more. Clients do not just "get a web-site," they get Mark himself. See: Webhost section here.
In 2010, Mark immersed himself in developing public speaking skills as another service to make available. In less than three years, he presented just shy of 100 speeches and achieved a plethora of awards. Whether for motivation, coaching, or for full-on presentations, Mark added this new skillset to the offerings for small businesses who need it. See: Speaker section here.
Whether it's accounting, marketing, or general business services, or it's webhosting or online business, or it's needing public speaking services, Mark offers a unique, enthusiastic, and enigmatic style to all of his services for small business.

Rather, when you need Mark for most anything about your web-site, he "has your back." Mark is your web-site ally and advisor.
