A Little About Me

Hi! I’m Ivana Taylor, the publisher of DIYMarketers and the host of #BizapaloozaChat.

DIYMarketers is all about doing BIG marketing on a small budget.

Here’s how we got started.

All my life, I’ve been a “value shopper.”  When I was growing up, we didn’t have a lot of money to spare.

But, my mom and I always believed that a lack of funds shouldn’t limit how great you look and feel. 

Don’t get me wrong — none of this was about being cheap, it was about VALUE; spending the least amount of money to get the best result.

Over the years, I’ve built a brand around getting big value on the smallest of budgets.


Questions We Answer On DIYMarketers

The DIYMarketers Philosophy

DIYMarketers offers strategies, tools, tips and ideas to run your marketing on $17 a day.

After more than 30 years playing the marketing game in both corporate and small business, I noticed that marketing has become overwhelming and confusing.

Small businesses were doing a thousand points of marketing; throwing money at one thing after another to see if that would work.  It doesn’t.

Do Less Marketing to Make More Money

Marketing is About Who You ARE and Not What You Do

We believe that marketing is MORE about who you ARE rather than what you DO. It’s about discovering what sets you and your business apart from the rest, it’s about staking your claim, and proclaiming your commitment to your customers in a way that touches, moves and inspires them to choose YOU over any other alternative regardless of price.
