Laurie Ramaker

Owner – Ramaker Communications


Laurie Ramaker – resourceful, detail-oriented and creative – has been helping South County businesses succeed for 30 years. Laurie founded Ramaker Communications, a marketing, advertising and public relations company, so clients can focus on what they do best: running their businesses.

“My company helps clients get that ‘blend’ right,” Laurie says. “Picture a three-legged stool. One leg represents existing clients, who must be nurtured and retained. Another leg is new customers and the third leg is your ‘brand’ or your image in the community.” Business owners are incredibly busy doing it all, so one part can get neglected, “which makes the stool really wobbly.”

Laurie excels at helping her clients keep it all in balance by serving as a mini marketing department for their businesses. A problem-solver and collaborator by nature, Laurie works with each client to plan, create and implement a marketing plan targeted to their customer base. “I listen to what the clients want and help them get there, no matter how conservative their marketing budget may be.”

For years, Laurie has worked with high-profile events like the South County Hot Air Balloon Festival and non-profits like the South County Museum. She knows what works and what doesn’t, and she gets results.
