Local entrepreneur launches website to help contractors statewide in their quest to earn a living in a struggling market.

Just over five months ago, Seguin native Dustin Kokenes, began brainstorming ideas on how he could help smaller freight companies gain market exposure through online advertisement. Having friends and relatives in the freight industry, he knew first hand that fuel prices were making many businesses close their doors and wanted to help the smaller companies through tough times.

Through his research on the Internet, Kokenes realized there was a large community of freight carriers along with a slew of construction businesses who needed, but had not yet found success in online marketing. Because of this, Southtxtransmark.com was born.

"There are many websites that focus on Internet Marketing, but not so many that give companies the ability to create and customize a profile in a network of peers and potential customers," says Kokenes, "Small companies cannot always compete with the big hitters of the corporate world. Small businesses achieve success by sharing ideas and supporting one another. Southtxtransmark.com is the perfect venue for small and large businesses in Texas to interact while advertising."

The website represents a network of Texas based industrial and residential contractors a weekly news construction updates and offers small business owners the ability to create a custom profile with a portfolio of past jobs. Southtxtransmark.com also offers affordable web design and advertising opportunities for smaller companies to help build their businesses.

In August 2007, Southtxtransmark.com started as a twinkle in an entrepreneur's eye and now offers a helping hand to companies all over the state of Texas.

In a message to Kokenes, Leon Lopez, owner of Authentic Custom Cabinets, writes "I appreciate the time and effort that you are putting into helping smaller companies like mine. Keep up the good work. I am sure that you will be Blessed for all that you do to help others."

"No, I'm not a dot com financial tycoon," laughs Kokenes, "but I sure am fortunate in having created resources for businesses owners who share the same goals as I. Small businesses with great concepts create their own opportunities, Southtxtransmark.com just offers a helping hand in achieving their goals, it is only at this point that my job is complete."
