Case Study

My name is Ryan Schortmann and I’m the founder of Display Pros. We are a custom trade show display booth company offering easy to use portable display “kits” for small and medium businesses wanting to get into the trade show game.

I launched Display Pros last year on a shoestring budget and have been bootstrapping the company ever since. Most early sales were by word of mouth and to my own network. Now that we’re hitting more respectable revenue levels, I have been reinvesting in the marketing effort with the goal of increasing our sales online.
