About Salterra LLC

Salterra is Terry and Elisabeth SamuelsWe started with humble beginnings. What was once an opportunity to give back to our church has evolved into a full-fledged agency. What? How? It really does sound like a fairytale story. When Terry was recovering from major shoulder surgery, there were only so many games of Call of Duty that he could stand. Getting bored of not being able to do anything, and becoming increasingly restless, an opportunity in our small local church became available. Updating and managing our church website soon turned into a few businesses from our congregation needing help with their own websites. Terry had a computer background from several years ago, so it was a great fit; it was something he could do from home and this is how Salterra was born. When business starting to come in quite steadily, he recruited his first employee; his wife Elisabeth. Armed with a strong customer service background, an art background, and a desire to learn, our company established itself. Over the years, we have taken every opportunity to grow in our industry, learning everything we can to be able to offer our clients the best experience and achievable results. We hired 3 of our 5 kids 2 years after we started in 2010.

We have grown into a competitive and respected business. What started as just the two of us, has grown to encompass web developers, designers, social media professionals, and alliances with some of the top SEO professionals in our field. By aligning ourselves with skill, knowledge and professional talent we are able to leverage our business to provide more for our clients. Our clients have always been the most important part of our business. Many have stayed with us since the beginning, not only are we grateful, but their loyalty speaks volumes to our ability and service. Our team has a metropolitan experience with a small town personality. This adaptability and sophistication gives us the range to interact professionally with all sizes of companies and corporations.
