About ePro Marketing

Don Phillipson launched ePro Marketing in 2008, providing local businesses from Santa Barbara to Orange County with cutting-edge digital marketing solutions. 

From 1999 to 2008, Don was a partner in Saputo Design (SD) in Westlake Village, CA. During that time, SD had a contract with GMC in Detroit, and Don acted as Creative Director - Copy on the account, working with his partner, Tom Saputo to manage a team of 18 designers and support personnel. 

Before that, Don was an award-winning (Belding and Clio) copywriter on major national accounts that included Honda, the California Lottery, Lockheed and Century 21.

Today, Don puts his experience as a copywriter and Creative Director to work for local businesses, crafting innovative digital marketing strategies that help companies develop an online brand image, generate leads and supercharge their referral business

Don is also active in the Southern California business community, serving as 2019 Chairman of the Board of the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce, and as a board member of three local non-profifts. 

Our Process

No two businesses are alike, which is why we first meet with a new client to determine their goals. We then develop a strategy designed to ensure success as measured by monthly analysis of Key Performance Indicators. 

In addition, we build a team organized around a client's specific needs. This ensures maximum cost efficency because you're not contributing toward the overhead of, for example, a project manager if your strategy does not require one. 

Each team is selected from Southen California-based independent contractors and/or Authorized Agencies in the WSI network of national and international offices. Teams typically include one or more:

  • Project Manager
  • Designer
  • Copywriter
  • Coder

In all cases, ePro Marketing owner Don Phillipson personally manages the project or monthly campaign from start to finish.
