Our Story

The Original Marketing group was developed in April, 2006, under the name  Hanson Marketing.  Founder Anne Hanson wanted to give area businesses personal marketing management services without giving them the expense of hiring a full time marketing manager. 


In 2012, Hanson Marketing expanded to add Jessica Hanson and Anna Kettwig. In 2015, the business name was changed to The Original Marketing Group. 


The Original Marketing Group works one on one with business owners to find solutions that expand the reach of their marketing budget and increase their business. We take ownership in our client’s success through smart marketing.

Founder/Unconventional Marketer

Anne must enjoy controlled chaos, as that’s what her life seems to be. From the office to her home, she always has more balls in the air than one person should be able to juggle.


The founder of what was supposed to be a one-person business , Anne is excited to keep growing and expanding. She wants each OMG client to feel they have a personal marketing manager right on staff.


“I feel like I’m a part of each of my client’s businesses. Not like an outside agency who was hired, but as if I am a part of their team.  Their successes are mine and I love working for each of them!”
