Mike Darling – Owner

Mike Darling

I originally started Smarter Web Solutions, LLC as a web-design company, and provided web-design services for small businesses and radio stations. I then went “underground” and built websites and sold digital products on the internet using direct response strategies.

I worked for myself as a Solopreneur.

However, a weekend trip to Roseburg, Oregon with couple who owned a small business changed all that.  To read more about that story, Click Here.

Now my passion is helping small businesses actually make money from their websites by teaching them to use the internet to acquire and keep customers.

I live in Bend, Oregon, and I love to backpack and fish and play outdoors in the mountains and open deserts of Central Oregon. I am a registered geologist and love geology, so when I’m not behind a computer you may find me digging for rocks.
