My name is Robert. I grew up here in Coeur d’Alene and have spent many years nerd-ing out over building websites. Today, It brings me great joy crafting modern, highly usable websites, and working alongside kind, passionate people to achieve better website goals together. New, old, broken, and neglected websites are all familiar. Regardless of where your brand sits, I hope you’ll consider reaching out and sharing with me. Thank you for considering Ever Marketing!


Website Consulting

Our breadth of experience and services circles around helping you achieve a healthy website built using WordPress. Healthy means up-to-date, loading fast, and truly serving you and your customers. It provides helpful information in a fun and engaging way. It’s on-brand and complete to serve; it’s exclusively what we work toward with your growing brand.

The best projects we complete share a common trait: Both parties are highly engaged and working hard towards the same goals. Bigger goals require a more routine time commitment, and that’s where one-on-one consulting with a digital strategist can help.


WordPress Managed Hosting and Support

We offer simple-to-understand and helpful WordPress-managed hosting and care services. We help our clients keep their websites up-to-date, and secure. Cheap hosting means you’re sharing your website with way too many people, on lower-quality server racks, with far more restrictive computing resources. Our managed hosting keeps you up and running quickly, adequately serving your website traffic needs. Our managed WordPress care service helps you when you need it at no additional cost.


Website Development and Design

We develop WordPress websites with a modern, informed approach. Our websites are always mobile responsive, on-brand, and to the service of your brand.

Often, a proprietary website drag-and-drop builder is too restrictive. You may find out your website is locked in with that platform and limited to its available features and capabilities. Open-source WordPress has grown into a dependable software with a large community backing it. It’s portable, and there are countless qualified individuals and groups to support you with your website.

From conception to complete design and development, your new website is carefully thought out together, directly by the professional building your new website. Additionally, we are happy to consult with you and assist with your existing WordPress website.

About Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, is renowned for its beautiful lake, natural landscapes, and strong and empowered community. A small community that once began as a fort town, was later officially incorporated in 1887. Miners from the area started to populate Coeur d’Alene when gold and silver deposits were found in nearby Silver Valley and once the Northern Pacific Railroad reached the town in 1883. But that came later in the history of this North Idaho town. The city was named after the Coeur d’Alene people, also known as Schi̲tsu’umsh, a Native American tribe whose presence in our community plays a significant role in its history, culture, and natural preservation.

Lake Coeur d’Alene

In the 19th and 20th centuries, Lake Coeur d’Alene experienced some of its greatest pollution from toxic waste. Early days of mining activity in nearby Silver Valey were estimated to have deposited upwards of 83 million metric tons of heavy metal-rich sediments into the lakebed. Heavy sediments include toxins including arsenic, lead, zinc, and cadmium. This puts our lake and environment at risk, and future generations at major risk of serious human health problems. Arsenic, for example, can cause cardiovascular issues, reproductive harm, and neurological effects like damage to your nervous system. Lead can wreak havoc on the human body. Lead exposure can impair neurological development, and impair function most especially in children. Lead can accumulate in the bones, and kidneys, cause birth defects, and even lead to anemia, which impairs the body’s immune response. The Coeur d’Alene Tribe once stated “… The State of Idaho, meanwhile, looked the other way.” regarding the pollution. Even now, swimmers in Lake Cd’A can be exposed to lead and arsenic by accidentally swallowing water, soil, or sand. A recent report from NAS found that the lake today remains one of the most contained in the U.S. Since the 1990s with the amount of phosphorous entering the lake nearly doubling, despite a decade of effort.

Tubbs Hill

According to this great piece by the Spokane Historical Society, Tony was a German-born land salesman, a hotel owner, and a justice of the peace. He was also a prominent figure of the late 1800s in Coeur d’Alene. In 1884, the land we now know as Tubbs Hill was purchased and peddled to unfamiliar settlers as a great spot to build a home; With hopes of selling the land and ultimately turning the hill into residential neighborhoods. While the history runs far deeper, Tubbs was not an easy place to build at the time, with limited tools available and major rock sentiment.

Friends of Tubbs Hill, a non-profit action group officially known as the Tubbs Hill Foundation, was formed by concerned citizens unhappy with greedy, harmful decisions being made by local politicians. According to their history, in 1962, the then-mayor of CdA broke the tie to approve rezoning Tubbs Hill. At the time, the ones proposing the plan were also previously appointed as part of the major’s administrative team. It was wrong, and that was clear. Thanks to the citizens of Coeur d’Alene, voters ousted the mayor and council in 1963.

Tubbs Hill, now known as a cherished nature preserve at the heart of Coeur d’Alene, was at a continued risk until it was ultimately conveyed into public ownership in 1974. The community needed to take action, so they did. Citizens raised enough money to match the contract price. A few homes managed to be built upon the hill but are now protected against further development. Instead of a slew of condominiums few could afford, this approximate 120-acre property is instead home to scenic hiking trails overlooking Lake Coeur d’Alene and home to beautiful wildlife. Locals and visitors alike can take in the natural scenery for generations to come with the help of preservation.

We highly recommend visiting a local establishment to get your hands on a copy of “The Treasure Called Tubbs Hill” by Scott Reed. It’s only $10 with all proceeds given to the Tubbs Hill Foundation. It can be found for sale at the Coeur d’Alene Library Bookstore, Well-Read Moose in Riverstone, the Museum of North Idaho downtown, or from the City of Coeur d’Alene Parks Department.

Hagadone

A lakeside resort that first began as the North Shore Motor Hotel in 1965 was later acquired by Hagadone Hospitality in a takeover—the same company behind the region’s largest newspaper publishing company. The partners were quick to begin expansion of the resort and to establish a new identity, “The Coeur d’Alene”. Throughout the late 90s and early 2000s, The resort continued to grow and quickly leveraged a growing media landscape and internet population. They were early in using advancing website technologies to their advantage to expand their reach. The Floating Green, a one-of-a-kind golf experience, is also found in Coeur d’Alene and was produced by the same resort. It was seen as a hit worldwide, even appearing in early CD golf simulation games. The resort’s cultural phenomenon took the town by storm and introduced a wave of faces and industry to the area. Cd’A had an identity that was changing.

Increasing Tourism

Ironman Coeur d’Alene was introduced to the area and has returned to town annually since 2003. Talented athletes worldwide continue to travel to town to participate in this scenic race that runs straight through Downtown Coeur d’Alene. The Coeur d’Alene Downtown Association was established as a non-profit in 1990 by The City of Coeur d’Alene and community business owners within the downtown district. Joint efforts brought big, annual community-driven events such as Car d’Lane, the summer Street Fair on Sherman Ave., and controversially, the 5th St. Farmers Market, originally hosted by the Kootenai County Farmers Market. They can still be found in nearby Riverstone and their other popular location in Hayden. The downtown association is also responsible for beautiful hanging flower baskets seen throughout downtown come summer – a definite characteristic of our downtown core. But maybe not as apparent as the Resort’s iconic stark red geranium.

Mudgie & Millie

Mudgie & Millie, a children’s book illustrated by Charles Reasoner, and written by Susan Nipp, first published in 2008 was another huge hit that attracted attention to a small North Idaho town. As an elementary kid growing up in a Coeur d’Alene district school at this time, the book had made its way into local schools, bookstores, and gift shops, and grown widely in popularity. Two friends, Mudgie, a moose, and his friend Millie, a mouse, roam the streets of downtown Coeur d’Alene and visit locations that remain iconic to this day. In this illustrated children’s book, Mudgie is looking for his friend Millie, unaware Millie was along for the adventure and with him the whole time. Multiple Mudgie & Millie-inspired bronze statues were eventually donated, which turned the twos’ paper-based adventures into a reality. The statues were placed throughout town for fans to follow the adventures in real life and throughout downtown Cd’A. The series continues to inspire fans of all ages to this day, and the two are even having exciting adventures in new places.
