Who Is Valis Marketing?

Hi, I’m James Kerley, the founder and main proprietor here at Valis. When you work with Valis, you’re going to going to get me and my network of vetted experts.

I’ve been in the digital content game since 2006.

And I love donuts.

But I’ve also done a few cool things. Here are some highlights:
