Meet the Marketing Mentor

“…through internet, radio and workshops, Shaundell has taught thousands the marketing process.”

Shaundell Newsome

Founder/Visionary, Sumnu Marketing

I started my marketing career at 14 years old with Lou Edna Graphics, a printing company. In 2006 I created the 12-step program to help business people develop a solid marketing foundation.

“The marketing process is ignored daily by small business owners. That mistake costs them millions and possibly their company.”
– S. Newsome

The keys to this program are understanding your business and your customers. Learning about pricing, distribution and a firm’s strengths and weaknesses are equally critical.



Hear from real members who were kind enough to share their SSZ experiences with us, and explain how they have benefited from the program.

“How grateful I am for the time and guidance I continue to get, but especially got last night while in a dilemma! Mentorship is important!!! You may be able to do some (even most things) pretty decent on your own, but letting the experts do what they do best so you can do what you do best, while still learning is a major way you take it to the next level and make yourself competitive among the great.Small business, corporate mindset!

“Since I started doing business with them in 2005, my experience with Sumnu has been very good. They have helped me grow as a business. I have received major clients such as President Obama, my biggest client that lead to others”.

“I want to thank Sumnu for being around, you have definitely helped grow my brand.

Mario Stadtlander

As a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Sumnu Marketing played an instrumental role in assisting me with recruiting and retaining Nevada’s DBEs during our recent restructuring and rebranding of the WRMSDC. Sumnu’s founder and visionary, Shaundell Newsome, attended many meetings with me to do strategic outreach to Nevada’s MBEs. Even though the company was recovering from the Great Recession and in a rebranding mode of its own, they were generous in providing support to the WRMSDC and it’s members.
