Current Marketing Services is based in Raleigh, North Carolina and we serve clients throughout the United States.
Hi, I am Terri Voltz. I am the founder and managing director of Current Marketing Services.
As a previous brick and mortar small business owner, I understand what it’s like to wear many hats. Trying to successfully market a business with tight budgets and minimal assets is something I completely understand. My experience and passion for the small business owner led me to establish my business, Current Marketing Services.
A business cannot afford to sit around and wait for their business to take off. If they are not on the web, they may never get the traffic they need to compete. This is where I come in. From the onset, I work with businesses and entrepreneurs who do not have a website or, perhaps, need their website brought to current times. Once their website is up and running, clients can focus on getting their business listed and begin socializing on relevant social media channels. Additionally, I offer business consultations for those new to the small business arena and in need of general guidance and encouragement. During my informative consultations, I offer sound advice, employee management strategies, general business practices, and much more. Every consultation is completely tailored to meet the unique needs of the business.
The Current Marketing Services team caters to businesses who have a staff to manage their web marketing, do-it-yourselfers and those who prefer not to have anything to do with “techy” stuff. The goal is to get businesses set up so they can manage their own website content and social media postings.
As with most thriving companies, my business was built on word-of-mouth. This growing demand for my services is one of the reasons I started a business that helps other small businesses prosper. We focus largely on WordPress Websites, Monthly WordPress Maintenance, WordPress Training and Internet Listing Services, but our services are vast and adapted to each client.
With years of business experience, trial and errors, and continued learning, I’ve developed strategies that are effective in helping new businesses become successful and bringing dying businesses up to current times. I am extremely passionate about what I do, and I would love to discuss your business needs with you. Together, we can prepare a plan that will ease your burdens and cause your business to become the successful business it was created to be!

My business journey began as a Dental Hygienist. I worked in the dental field for 12 years and gained the experience of working in pediatric and general dental practice offices and was cross-trained to work in all positions of the dental practice. I received patients, created marketing material, introduced one of the first dental software programs, worked as a chair-side assistant, and was an excellent patient-focused Dental Hygienist. While working, I went back to school and earned my degree in Business Management, with an emphasis in Finance.
When I became a mother, my career—gladly!—shifted. I left my Dental Hygiene career and made a full-time career as a stay-at-home mom! As many stay-at-home moms know, you don’t really stay at home! I found myself deeply involved with volunteering in my neighborhood association (served on various committees and as President) and in the PTA (serving as Family Fun Event Coordinator and Treasurer). As a baseball mom I became the team webmaster and stat keeper. I created Excel spreadsheets and kept the stats of each player (this was prior to tablets and apps). I also helped Garner Baseball, Inc. take their program online. and I setup their online registration. Today, I continue to volunteer as the VP of Concessions with our high school athletic booster and as webmaster for the PTSA.
When my husband and I became majority owners in an electrical supply distributorship (RE Supply), I found myself in the most challenging years of my life. What was supposed to be a part-time job as an Accounts Payable Manager turned into a full-time Director of Finance job that included management of human resources, finances, sales tax, payroll, and employee benefits, I had to learn as I went along.
One of my greatest achievements was managing the integration from a DOS distributor software system to Windows-based distributor software (Prophet 21). I was the Prophet21 expert and the go-to person for any problems with the software. Balancing the demands of a multiple million dollar business and a family was certainly a challenge.
After selling the Electric Supply Distributorship, I got an itch to own another business. I was thinking something simple and fun…..I ended up purchasing a coffee shop. Once again I found myself in a business I knew little about! I thought it would be a fun business that my family could help with. It was their encouragement that convinced me to move forward. I read many books and found advice that told me, “Don’t Do It,” but with the love of coffee and people, and the determination to be successful, I moved forward. The financial plan and business analysis looked good…what I didn’t realize is the investment of time that would be required. I found myself wearing many, many hats. I managed all advertising, marketing, web design, accounting, inventory and employees, etc. While I had built a great community gathering place and had many loyal customers, the time spent away from my family was not part of the business plan. The saddest part about selling the business was saying goodbye to the customers and employees. My biggest take-away was a much greater respect for those who are bold enough to open a store-front business!
As I looked for another gig, I found myself freelancing and helping other business owners with marketing type projects. The biggest demand was for WordPress websites. I continued to improve my WordPress and Internet Marketing skills. Ultimately. I decided to incorporate and make helping small businesses grow, my business!
