Why Zeal Media?
Most business owners are skilled at their craft, whether they’re a retail shop owner, restauranteur, hair stylist or contractor.
If you’re like most entrepreneurs, when it comes to operating a business, you probably learn a lot by trial and error.
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. Time and budgets don’t allow for years of testing.
Small business owners need a digital marketing agency who understands how to reach their ideal customer.
That’s where we come in.
Why Small Business?
From day one, we have been drawn to small business—the ups, downs, challenges and victories.
It’s rewarding knowing that through web design and marketing we’re helping small business owners put their kids in sports, music lessons, put braces on their teeth and send them to summer camp.
We have helped hundreds of small business owners—just like you—reach new customers, increase sales and hit next-level business growth.
We are honoured to share in our customers’ success!
Marketing is constantly evolving. It looks so different from 10 years ago, even two years ago. We make sure our clients do not get left behind. We continually research current, effective marketing techniques so we can improve our services and marketing strategy for our clients.
Many small business owners know little about marketing when they first step up to the plate. It ends up being a swing and a miss until they gain more experience or get help from a marketing company.
Sustainable business growth needs professional marketing.

Raised in central Saskatchewan, owner Ryan Boutin’s love for graphic design began at the age of 12, when his family purchased their first computer (1988). His love for graphic design developed as he learned how to use Printmaster and CorelDraw 1.0. He used them to design invitations, posters and banners. He finished high school in 1995 then went to study graphic design at college a year later. This took him to the Edmonton campus of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).
Ryan returned to Saskatoon in search of a job after graduating from NAIT. Finding nothing in the field of graphic design, he made ends meet with labourer jobs. In the fall of 1998, he started an alarm company with his father and brother. Ryan poured his graphic and web design skills into marketing this business. It became one of the fastest growing private alarm companies in Western Canada. They sold the company in 2009 when Ryan’s father wished to slow down. Ryan’s career immediately shifted as he started a new company building homes.
In January 2011, Ryan founded Zeal Media Inc. The purpose was to serve small business owners in Saskatoon and central Saskatchewan. His 20+ years of graphic and web design experience was now available to help others.
Zeal Media is always looking at the small business owner’s digital marketing needs, adding many new services since opening in 2011. Among those services are marketing strategy, coaching, and ecommerce. Zeal Media now serves small business owners across Canada and into the United States. What started with one person in Central Saskatchewan is becoming an international marketing brand.
