About Marketing Essentials

Welcome to Marketing Essentials. We’re a family-owned business focused on delivering outstanding customer service.
Experienced Enough to Meet Your Goals

After working in the incentive industry for 13 years, Janine Krautbauer started Marketing Essentials in 1996. Since that time, we have built strong relationships with each of our clients, as well as manufacturers and distributors. With nearly 30 years of experience in the incentive market, we know how to understand your objectives and create programs that will incentivize employees and consumers.
Small Enough to Be Flexible

As a small business, we offer flexibility that you don’t often find with bigger firms. Our owners Bob and Janine Krautbauer work directly with every client, and we will go the extra mile to ensure that we meet our commitments to you.
We’re always available for our clients, and we work hard to create customized proposals for each project. Our relationships with manufacturers and distributors make it possible for us to offer creative options with various price points, categories and brands.
Give us a call or email us to start the conversation. We will work with you to understand your objectives and draft a proposal to meet those goals. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
