About Sparker Webgroup

I’m Stephen Parker (aka Sparker). Starting in 1997, I spent about a decade building and managing web and online projects for Fortune 500 and Global 500 companies in Denver and Chicago. Working for some of the biggest tech, telecom, and energy companies in the world taught me how to build a compelling website, effectively communicate with customers, and get noticed by the search engines.

In the 2000’s I used that experience to work as director of digital strategies for one of the Top public relations and public affairs firms in Chicago, leading all web, SEO, social media, reputation management, and crisis management campaigns for high-profile clients including: American Medical Association, Pfizer, Chicago Cubs, The Carter Foundation, University of Chicago, Earth Hour, J.B. Pritzker, Rush Oak Park Hospital, ComEd, Exelon, and many more.

In 2007 I opened my own web, strategy and customer experience agency. Some of our clients are just launching their businesses and find they don’t have the time (or interest) to build or maintain a website themselves. Others are growing and need help, but they cannot afford a large digital agency or PR firm. That’s where we come in. We specialize in websites and online strategies for businesses like:

  • Medical, dental & orthodontics practices / clinics
  • Healthcare and health-related businesses
  • Real estate agents and agencies
  • Technology and tech service firms
  • Financial service firms
  • Attorneys & law firms
  • Nonprofits
  • Landscape designers & landscaping companies
  • Education, schools, and daycare
  • Architects, builders & contractors
  • Musicians & artists
  • Startups and MVP (Minimum Viable Product) Launches

Stephen has a rather unique blend of web know-how, digital marketing expertise, and design and content generation skills--all bundled inside a very personable individual.

Our Skills

My hometown (and our homebase) of Nashville, TN is well-known for its energy, creativity, and ‘can-do’ attitude. It’s no coincidence that our clients use the same words to describe us. We are passionate about finding ways for our clients to succeed online and we try to make the process as approachable and painless as possible.

If you are looking for a digital agency that won’t return your calls, talks over your head, and is worried only about the billable hour — keep looking. That’s not our style at all. I am an incredibly responsive person and I demand the same of anyone who works for me. We truly enjoy the process of website design and we love letting clients in on it. We are also true advocates for our clients in every sense of the word and we pride ourselves on the personal attention we give every single project.

If any of this sounds good to you, we would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about your website project.
