I’m Criss Ittermann, the Eclectic Tech, revolutionary brainstormer helping small business owners answer important questions for their business.
Less Expensive than you think!
You need to look your best when you're presenting your business. I'm not talking about your clothing. No matter how well dressed you are, if your promotional materials are dated, inaccurate, crossed-out, printed on a home or office printer, photocopied, or so on, you are turning off your clients as certain as you were dumpster diving for dinner.
Make sure you present potential clients with clean, crisp, professionally printed materials that are as unique as your business. When your materials are orderly it gives your prospect a sense that you are serious, that you are successful, that you are organized, that you will go to great lengths to do right by them. Because it looks like you went to great lengths to market to them.
And, really, it's OK to spend .4¢ ($.004) to hand a prospect a nice business card, right?
Graphic Design Services
Crisp and clear artwork
Tired of a fuzzy logo? Did your provider turn you away because your logo is of poor quality? I specialize in turning low-quality raster art like JPEGs into vector art for high quality imprints, scalable artwork, trade show and booth signage, stickers, labels, wall graphics, billboards, signs and more. I can design logos and provide high quality printing services. I can also help industry professionals consult on graphic design issues.

An entry level offering to provide you with an analysis of and strategies to improve your website, business cards, printed materials, sales process, voicemail message, etc. Distance sessions over the phone, Skype with screen sharing, Realtime Board, or via email. Half hour session. Contact me or call first, but if we've spoken and made an appointment you can pay $40 now.
Tackling small business issues
My signature service: brainstorming sessions. These client-driven intense sessions address problems or shortcomings in a business, or work/life balance issues, and search for new ideas, markets, products, services, relationships, partnerships and more to help solve them. Sessions are facilitated both as individual sessions, or in a small group setting, often pre scheduled. Terrific for board or staff meetings, or for solopreneurs to gain a temporary partner in their business who compliments their strengths. Read more about brainstorming.
Ongoing business improvement
A string of brainstorming sessions with continuity of subject matter or context, business coaching also helps small businesses and small business owners continually improve and develop new services, programs, markets and opportunities to flourish. Read more about business coaching.
Works well with others
In addition to group brainstorming, and coaching, I also run some local events: NWIN, a monthly woman's network co-directed by Melanie Richards and Holistic Hudson Valley which I run alone. See my upcoming group brainstorming events.
Content-centered sites and special web applications
About half of my career, I was also debugging and repairing other people's computer programs, and I'm now a web programmer and system administrator. I develop websites for clients requiring specialty applications and don't want to pay custom software prices. I also create basic content-driven websites, check here for a website feature comparison. I can provide less expensive websites with pre-made designs, and other features & options. I also help people with website problems and answer their frequently asked questions about websites. Established clients can go on a maintenance plan.
