I enjoy motivating other small business owners to succeed. Let's chat about how I can help you make more money through better marketing.

Hello! My name is Dequiana Brooks, and I’m a passionate entrepreneur who makes it her mission to take the fear out of small business marketing. My Inspired Marketing, Inc. ( coaching clients are driven entrepreneurs who have placed marketing on the back-burner because it was deemed "too hard" or "too expensive." I show them how implementing my exclusive SPARK Marketing System™ will shatter negative mindsets, empower them to take control of their marketing and help make more money. For those who already have their strategy down, I offer branding services, such as web design and content writing, through Inspired Graphics Media. (

I’ve always been motivated by two things: entrepreneurship and helping others succeed. Both of my businesses were built around helping entrepreneurs solve a problem. Inspired Graphics Media was developed in 2003 after I noticed that many entrepreneurs I met did not have web sites, or the web sites they used to promote their businesses were lacking the key tools that would convert their site visitors into buyers. However, I was slow to make a profit because I did not understand the proper way to market my services. It took me 6 months to land my first web design client! Rather than rest on my laurels, I decided to go to business school and learn the right way to market. A few months into my classes, December 2005, I started Entrepreneur Resources: A Small Business Blog ( This blog served as a way to share my new knowledge with other entrepreneurs.

I graduated from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business in 2007 with an MBA in Marketing Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Organizational Behavior. Directly after school, I worked in brand management for a top consumer packaged goods company. I learned the strategies used to make billion dollar brands successful, and now I’m bringing that marketing knowledge back to the small business community. In September 2010, Inspired Marketing, Inc. was born. Through coaching, home study products and live events, I help entrepreneurs make more money in their businesses through better marketing. I’m so excited to be able to help small business owners succeed.

When I’m not coaching marketing clients, doing branding work or writing, I can be found running behind my energetic 13 and 4 year old daughters. We live in Chicago, Illinois.

Three Steps to Defining Your Target Consumer!

In order to be successful in business, your product or service must

meet a consumer's unmet need. While this makes sense, many are left

wondering – who is this “consumer” person, and how do I reach him or

her? Generally speaking, a consumer is someone who uses goods or

services. What your business is most interested in is finding its

target consumer – that group of people who…

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”

Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
