How we work with you
“We work alongside small business owners to pursue their dreams with a digital plan, thoughtful execution and a little bit of love.” -Catherine Kolkoski, Founder
When your customers are online looking for what you have to offer, we want them to find you. And when they find you- we want them to have confidence in your business because you website is more than what they were expecting. We want them to call you or fill out a contact form.
We want you to get that lead!
We want you to get that business!
Then we want your customers to go online and tell the world how awesome you are by leaving reviews on Google, Facebook, and Yelp. Positive reviews will help potential customers see the quality of your business and the cool things that your clients and customers are saying about you!
We don’t think our wants are unreasonable. Do you?
Catherine Kolkoski started A2 Online Marketing with one client. The company has purposefully grown at a pace that allows each one of the team members to deliver customer-focused, personalized attention that puts the client and their unique business needs first.
She has been in Marketing for more than 35 years (She doesn’t look old enough, right?) Her skill sets in communication, organization, business development, sales, creativity, and leadership benefit the small business clients she serves.
Lead generation and marketing have changed a great deal since she first started her professional career as VP of Marketing for a Business Development Company in Scottsdale, AZ. A graduate of The University of Arizona, Catherine has been in online marketing since 2011. She thoughtfully guides her clients to compete online by establishing or increasing their online footprint with an content-rich website, social media, SEO, paid social media advertising, and local search.
She considers herself a creative writer and offers her writing skills to her clients for consulting, website content, blog writing, and email marketing. She has a heart for small businesses and the people that own them.
When not in front of her computer, Catherine is hiking and working out at the gym. Her weekends are filled with date nights with Blair (her husband of 29 years), volunteering, and being with their three kids (Bryce 27, Breezy 25, and granddaughter Lyla and Brie 17). She is not a good cook but she does make a great cheesecake.
She and her family live and love in Parkville, MO.

Renee Huepper is a marketing professional who helps her clients grow their businesses through social media marketing and linking strategies. She not only has a real knack for planning and organization, but also a distinct creative streak.
After graduating from James Madison University in Virginia (a few hours from where she grew up), she started her career in hospitality and tourism. After advancing in sales and meeting planning for a few years, she shifted her focus to raising her two boys (Mason 19 and James 15).
Once back in the workforce, Renee decided to utilize her baking skills and launched her own homemade dessert business—giving many satisfied customers a reason to hit the treadmill. She now uses her creativity for “good,” helping others promote their small businesses.
When she’s not doing that, Renee enjoys photography, cooking, baking, and spending time with her family—her husband (of 25 years), two boys and dog Chief—at their home in Alpharetta, GA.
