Garrison Digital Solutions – Traverse City, Michigan

Our Values



Everyone we work with we consider a partner. We strive to become your partner, not a vendor, because we’re at our best when we work with you, and not for you. With our synergistic approach with any of our partners, whether you’re a start-up, a small business, or a Fortune 500 company, we’ll create a mutual win-win situation.



Integrated Digital Marketing requires a lot of behind the scene work that our clients don’t often get to see. In light of that, we provide opportunities for you to learn what we’re doing through our online educational programs, business consultations, and systematic approach to customer service. No surprises!



With our insight into multiple technical solutions for any given problem, we’re able to think outside the box and come up with the proper strategy and solution for you. We’ll help you make the right decisions by educating you on all the available options out there so you know exactly what you’re getting. Our goal-save you money!



We have a  lean mentality with the solutions we provide to our clients, just as much as we value our team staying lean within our company. We remove the extra unnecessary steps by reusing code instead of spending vital resources redeveloping the same code, or by backing our decisions with data instead of assumptions.
