Think Big Digital Marketing is a full-service marketing agency with particular expertise in 5-Star Reputation Marketing, Reputation Management, Mobile/Responsive Web Design & Development, SEO, PPC and Local SEO.
Our corporate marketing team is broken down into the following departments/divisions which are managed by our CEO and Lead Project Manager(s):
- Creative Design Team
- Web Development & Programming Team
- Content Team
- PPC/Display Team
- Online Marketing Team
We specialize in helping our clients predictably grow their business and maximize profitability by employing specific intelligence into their customer/client experience, online and reputation marketing, sales channels and client retention systems. We help our clients build an online presence in a strategic way that produces BIG, measurable and predictable results. We also help many of our clients radically simplify and automate much of their customer relationship efforts in their customer journey, outbound marketing and follow-up processes. As marketing dollars spent on customer acquisition are optimized with proper conversion and client retention strategies, these developed efficiencies also add to the bottom line resulting in marked increased profitability.
Because our approach is so effective we specifically limit the number of clients we acquire in any given local market. Our system produces quantifiable results for our clients. We do not particularly like competing with ourselves [so to speak] so we only accept one type of client in a given geographic area and radius. (ie. 1 chiropractor, 1 attorney). For national or large SEO projects, more exclusivity is usually required and we accommodate these on a case by case basis.
We achieve what we do because we have assembled a diverse, world-class team with real life expertise in highly specific skill sets. We have the ability to scale and take on small to very large projects quickly and we maintain regular clientele who employ us on a monthly retainer basis.
Think Big Digital Marketing is the culmination of 20 years of real life and business experiences. Through the years our ownership team has learned invaluable lessons in marketing and technology. We have also experienced many of the challenges most CEO’s and business owners face with their outbound marketing, client relationship management and retention, and prospect follow up processes along with systems development and the solutions needed to achieve scale.
In short, we think BIG and focus on delivering BIGGER for our clients.
ABOUT OUR CEO, LANE A. HOUK

Through his entrepreneurial experiences and his passionate pursuit to be a marketing and business growth expert, Lane has acquired and developed some very powerful business, technology and software solutions. Some of it truly is guarded, secret knowledge we do not disclose. It is our competitive advantage and major differentiator in the marketplace. Think Big Digital Marketing is dedicated to bringing these solutions to market to companies, small businesses and professionals in all 50 US States – with the hope that we’ll help many great people achieve their dreams through their entrepreneurial dreams and efforts by partnering with us.
Lane also believes strongly in doing his part to building community and giving back… In 2006 he founded and launched what is known today as Herocare (www.herocare.org). Built on the belief that our country is full of great, hard-working men and women who serve their communities with heart and passion. They’re the difference-makers in Lane’s book and Herocare’s goal is to serve them while they serve their community and our country. The mission of Herocare is to help “heroes” achieve their dreams of financial security while fostering awareness of their valued service and needs. Herocare offers a vast array of housing, financial and foreclosure-prevention counseling services along with hundreds of valuable discounts and online education and manages a toll-free national Help Line for heroes (877-437-6411 ext. 0).
Other Awards and Recognition:
In 2008 Lane received the Distinguished Leadership Award from the Community Leadership Association. Lane also received the Prestigious 40 Under 40 Award by Gulf Shore Business Magazine in 2008 being recognized as one of the Gulf Coasts top 40 business and community leaders under 40 years of age.
The one thing Lane is most proud of is his two boys, Luke and Shaun. What good would it be if he were massively successful in business but a failure as a dad? The answer: it would be a travesty. So Lane puts a huge effort and his full heart towards trying to be a great dad for his two boys. He coaches and plays ice hockey… another passion of his. Lane also conducts business with that same effort and believes in values-based business powered by a passion to be excellent. A solid handshake, a clear conversation of expectations and going above and beyond is what Lane constantly aims for.
