Diane W. Collins, Founder

MARKETINGWEB.COM is a marketing consultancy originated by Diane W. Collins in November 1997. Ms. Collins is the owner and founder of the company and remains its prime strategist.

Marketingweb.com has been privately funded since its inception. The company was profitable one year and nine months into operation. "We have always believed in the bottom line. While others sought to provide free information to gain "eyeballs" and "ad revenue", Marketingweb.com sought to build confidence. Initially, we established our reputation online by providing free, reliable Internet marketing information. The purpose was to build trust... the best foundation upon which to launch our consulting services."

Diane W. Collins began her marketing career as Director of Development for The American Lung Association - Dallas, Texas. Ms. Collins (then Diane Wicklund) worked with notable companies and personalities including Neiman-Marcus; Warner Brothers; Republic Financial Services; The Aerobic Center; The Horchow Collection; Southwestern Medical Foundation; and the late Charles Schultz in devising programs, events and obtaining grants benefiting the non-profit organization. Ms. Collins moved to California in 1983 and a career in financial services in 1984 marketing insurance and securities as well as training financial representatives.

With the advent of the commercial Internet, Ms. Collins left financial services to found Marketingweb.com in November of 1997. Her quest--discover and share the best, ethical marketing techniques the Internet had to offer small and emerging companies. Through her published live, online chat interviews with such personalities as Paul Graham, Producer, Yahoo! Store; Robert Frankenburg, past CEO of Novell; Karl Salnoske, General Manager E-commerce, IBM and notable Internet marketing specialists and authors such as Vince Emery, Jim Sterne, and online security specialist Lincoln Stein, Ms. Collins accomplished her goal.
