We’re CRAZY – About Technology that is.

Infusing today’s technology with digital marketing strategies, tactics, and solutions create fantastic results for our clients. Whether it’s using tech to monitor social media, review sites or other online mentions, and providing automation to join the conversation, our customers find it to be outrageously successful toward maintaining their brand online.


Marketing Partners LLC was founded in Las Vegas in 2012, and appropriately so considering the company was formed on a bet   M. Alex Kaine, the reclusive Co-Founder, and Executive Vice President once owned a restaurant in town which was struggling to stay afloat. Sales were at an all-time low, customers unhappy, quality inconsistent, and it needed a good cleaning.  Let’s just say MAK was not a great absentee owner. No reclusive individual should ever own a face-to-face business and have it succeed. The hospitality industry depends on owners and managers working long hours every day of the week.

David J Dunworth, the Founder, and CEO of Marketing Partners LLC, in 2012, happened to dine there one afternoon, and after surmising the restaurant’s problems, let MAK know what he thought. Once he tracked him down, that is.  The discussion led to a meeting of the minds; the bet was on.

David bet MAK (MAK’s full name is Montgomery Alexander Kaine) that he could not only have the place turn a profit within six months, but the restaurant would also generate more customers and revenue than it ever did since it opened years prior.  In exchange for doing so, MAK would have to split the business with David on a go forward basis if he were to prove successful. David had to perform his “magic” without pay or reimbursement for any marketing expense, promotions or advertising. At the time the bet looked a bit lopsided.

What MAK didn’t know was that David had spent a career in hospitality and commercialization. What David didn’t fully realize was that MAK seldom even visited his restaurant as he was a notorious recluse.  MAK hated being out in public, and worse yet hated having his photo taken. He is hard to work with due to his reluctance to meet outside of his home.

To make a long and confusing story short, David won the bet by producing record sales, higher than ever check average and customer counts, and a glowing reputation. They decided to sell the restaurant for a tidy profit and invested it in creating a marketing agency.  MAK would stay behind the scenes, and David would be the face of the business.  The rest is history still being written.


  • Honesty and Integrity:

    The two most important qualities we seek in partners and clients. We feel life is too short to deal with controversy or an incompatible relationship

  • Humility:

    We know we don’t know everything and won’t pretend we do

  • Collaboration:

    We employ a team effort in working with our clients and find consensus whenever tough decisions require attention

  • Stewardship:

    We have a responsibility to preserve and protect our client’s brand, reputation, and resources above all else


Because we’ve held entire careers in hospitality, it’s easy to think that food and beverage operations are all we know.  That would be a misconception.

We’re a marketing consultancy, with particular expertise in hospitality, real estate, medical, legal and technology marketing and advertising.  Marketing Partners has worked with some of the world’s largest golf and resort country clubs, as well as plastic surgeons, dentists, lawyers and Indian Chiefs.

As such, we’ve worked with start-up brands, as well as seasoned enterprises. Services include brand identity, web presence, customer loyalty, web development and lead generation, but that’s far from all.  Marketing Partners possesses the experience and expertise to get your new or rebranded business off and running.

We’re a digitally minded consultancy, with clients and offices in Chicago, Cleveland, Tampa, New Jersey, and Vancouver B.C.  That’s right, Vancouver, British Columbia.  We’ve got our eye Down-Under too, so hopefully, we’ll be saying G’day Mate real soon.

In charge of looking out the window!

Remember we told you MAK is a total recluse?  We weren’t kidding. He hates being photographed and refuses to use Skype. It’s almost impossible to get a photo of his face.  He’d like to stay anonymous, so he refuses to publish his pic.

I wonder how he got a driver’s license or a passport?
