Making a Difference

Our roots are in the community; our passion is to make the world better.

We see all around us extremes over business, religion, the environment, and greed. At APi-marketing we just want to help the world be a better place. We steward our love of the land by seeing great value in making environmentally conscious business decisions, and supporting our land trusts and those who take care of our trails. We volunteer in any way possible to better the people and places around us. We remember that we have within us the strength, the patience, and the passion change the world. It is our privilege to be small part of everyone's happiness.

Being a part of our community is a big deal to my business and my family. It is nice to see a company in our area that cares about our community with such passion as APi-Marketing does. This is the reason that I use APi-Marketing for my marketing needs.

As a small non-profit, Placer Land Trust doesn’t always have the time or staff expertise to market ourselves the way we would like to. That’s why it’s so comforting to have Merrill and the team at API-Marketing just a phone call away — I really see them as Placer Land Trust’s "marketing department."
Placer Land Trust
We work with Api-marketing because they are big supporters of the community, as are we. I appreciate that they donate to local events and fundraisers and they work hard to be an active part of our local economy.
