Welcome Message From Our Founder

Welcome From Rick Upshaw

Rick Upshaw

Rick Upshaw

Hello!  My name is Rick Upshaw, and I am the Founder, President & CEO of American Marketing Solutions.  On behalf of our entire company, I’d like to warmly welcome you to our website.

As you might know by now (and as explained elsewhere on this site), American Marketing Solutions has been (and still is) one of the largest, most successful, most active, and certainly most important divisions of American Enterprises, an entrepreneurial company I founded more than 20 years ago, and for which I also still serve as President & CEO.  American Marketing Solutions also serves as the marketing arm of American Enterprises and it’s other divisions and projects.  I’m very proud of what American Marketing Solutions has achieved and what we’ve learned over the years through our successes and even our failures, all of which have provided us with the “seasoned” experience we now utilize every day for the benefit of our client businesses, business professionals, non-profit entities, public figures and politicians in order to help them achieve their marketing and public relations goals.

We recently completely redesigned the look and feel of the American Marketing Solutions website.  The messages and feedback we have received seem to indicate that you – our valued clients, readers, followers and friends – approve of those changes, and I am grateful for that. It is my humble and sincere hope that you will continue to offer your feedback to us so that we can continue to improve and grow our website as well as our services to you.

If you happen to know me personally, or if you have followed me for some time, you know that this site is one of many websites I have online which are focused on various aspects of helping businesses slash overhead while at the same time increasing revenue using 21st century “best of breed” business practices, policies and procedures.  In the case of this website, American Marketing Solutions focuses on the marketing aspect of your enterprise, in most cases drastically lowering your marketing costs while at the same time increasing revenue.

I don’t claim to be some big-time internet guru whose only purpose in life is to sell you books and tapes or online info-products.  However, as you’ll see on this site, through years of experience, training & education, and simple trial and error, I’ve managed to develop the skills & expertise necessary to help you dominate your target market in such a way that I can show you a real-time ROI.  Nothing more.  Also, you might be interested to know that my ego isn’t so swollen that I have to have thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of clients. I’m not really interested in constantly growing my business to unimaginable heights, so much so that – like so many other companies in the world today – I end up treating my clients like a piece of meat with a number on it.  That’s just not how I work.  I’m not interested in quantity. I’m only interested in quality… quality relationships with clients with whom I can work together to achieve amazing goals in their businesses and/or personal lives. My goal for American Marketing Solutions is simply to develop a small, select group of clients who will work with me in order to help them achieve their business goals.

In these uncertain financial times, there is a lot of demand for what I do – slashing overhead while at the same time increasing revenue – so I don’t often have the opportunity to take on new clients.  However, whenever the opportunity arises to do so, I truly enjoy the challenge of helping each new client “get where they want to go” in terms of meeting their goals.

I hope you’ll spend some time here on our site and really get a sense of what we’re about here at American Marketing Solutions.  We’re not merely a group of internet geeks sitting around fiddling with our computers.  My team’s primary focus is on creating an ROI first for your marketing investment.  We have a passion for helping businesses – particularly small businesses – add more profit to their bottom line as we heslashing costs while at the same time increasing revenue.  In fact, if we can’t clearly show how we can accomplish that ROI, then we don’t do business with that prospective client!

Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this message.  I am truly honored to have at least earned your interest in who we are, what we do, and what we’re about here at American Marketing Solutions.   If you are interested in dominating your target market online, and if we are currently taking on new clients, I truly hope you’ll consider allowing us to work with you!

To Your Success!

Rick Upshaw
