Meet the Founder

Strategic Marketing Soltuions founder Travis Russell

Travis Russell

Growing up, Travis learned the value of a hard day’s work by helping his father lay concrete and asphalt as part of his construction business. While he always liked working with his hands, drawing and designing were his true passion. He actually began using computer-aided design software to frame out buildings from a very young age.

Eventually, he pursued a career in graphic design and direct mail marketing at Whitehall Management. After personally designing and building their marketing program into what it is today, he met Mike Abernathy.

He went on to work with Mike at Summit Practice Solutions where he helped develop and grow the marketing branch of their company. From there, he moved on to Quantum Leap Success in Dentistry and built up their marketing division as well.

At this point, he decided to start his own firm based off of the relationships he had formed with people owning several, varied small businesses from dental practices to law firms. He eventually teamed up with Dr. Brady Frank of Osteo Ready Implant Courses, giving him his first independent dental client. Over time, he built SMS into the comprehensive marketing company it is today, partnering with and providing numerous services for small businesses around the country.

Travis now lives in southern Oregon’s beautiful Rogue Valley with his family. When he isn’t helping clients, he likes to spend his time with his family doing just about anything outdoors, including boating, riding horses, camping, fishing, and playing with their dogs.
