Marketing Agency

About Us

Local Marketing Agency

Small business owners need a professional marketing agency to reach their ideal customers. Most business owners are skilled at their craft, whether retail shop owners, restauranteurs, hair stylists or contractors.

Like most entrepreneurs, you probably learn much by trial and error when operating a business. What entrepreneur hasn’t spent countless hours learning the art of bookkeeping or promotional flyer design?

The problem is that your marketing needs to work quickly. Unfortunately, time and budgets don’t allow for years of testing.

Why Small Business?

From day one, we have been drawn to small business—the ups, downs, challenges and victories.

It’s rewarding knowing that we’re helping small business owners. When the website or marketing services we provide generate income for our clients, it allows them to pay for things like sports, music lessons, sending their kids to camp or putting braces on their teeth.

We have helped hundreds of small business owners—like you—reach new customers, increase sales and hit next-level business growth.

As an experienced marketing agency, we can help.

Our Story

Raised in central Saskatchewan, Zeal’s owner, Ryan Boutin, fell in love with graphic design at 12 when his family purchased their first computer (1988). His passion for graphic design developed as he learned to use Printmaster and CorelDraw 1.0. When he finished high school in 1995, he went to the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) to study graphic design.

Returning to Saskatoon after completing the course, Ryan could not secure work in his chosen field. So in 1998, Ryan started an alarm company with his father and brother. Ryan poured his graphic and web design skills into marketing the business until it became one of the fastest-growing private alarm companies in Western Canada. In 2009, Ryan’s father wanted to slow down, so they sold the company. Ryan’s career immediately shifted as he started a new company building homes.

The Start of Something Great

In January 2011, Ryan founded Zeal Media Inc. The purpose was to serve small business owners using his 20+ years of graphic and web design experience. To this day, Zeal Media provides web design and marketing services to small businesses across Canada and the United States.
