About

Take & Bake Marketing is a new service for providing digital marketing assets created by Charles F. Eberhart and Co. It is a simplified, affordable approach to high quality design featuring rapid turn-around and fast implementation.

“Far too often clients find themselves in a guessing game between huge price and quality differentials …” said Eberhart, “…T&B looks to break such barriers by providing experience and quality with an upfront, flat rate pricing model.”

Charles F. Eberhart (“Chuck Francis” as he is most commonly referred to by friends, clients and co-workers because of his old radio “air” name) has spent the last 30-years forging new marketing strategies, concepts, ideas, and programs for both traditional and digital media.

Shifting from radio to digital in the late 90’s, Chuck began working with entertainment companies on integrating digital media strategy into their marketing mix. His awareness of the power of media integration earned early recognition from clients such as Sony Music, RCA, Arista, Curb, MCA, Capitol, and Big Machine. That work blossomed quickly to expand into other business sectors.

For nearly 20 years Chuck and his trusted team of associates have been providing digital marketing services to national companies and organizations like The Better Business Bureau of Central Ohio, Dayton, Idaho, and Arkansas; Prosper Technologies, Kohl’s, S.C. Johnson, California Closets, Complete Nutrition and Dogwatch Hidden Fence.

Closer to home, Chuck and his team have worked with many recognizable Central Ohio brands such as The Basement Doctor, Three C Body Shop, Orthopedic One, Riley’s Country Painting, Silver Threads, North American Broadcasting, Dispatch Digital, This Week Community Media, Scope Aircraft, Midwest Retail Services, and Benchmark Landscape Design.

“Large and small, our approach to working with your company is exactly the same…” Chuck continued, “…bringing your vision to life as quickly, effectively and affordably as possible.”

TAKE & BAKE WELCOMES MATT MILLER – CO-OWNER/EXECUTIVE VP OF SALES

Matt Miller has been involved with franchising, start-ups, marketing and consulting small businesses since 2010. Matt began his career in franchising by launching retail stores for Omaha based nutrition company Complete Nutrition to Columbus, Ohio.  Under his management he was able to expand the Columbus market to three locations within the first six months of opening the first retail store.

Slim Down Columbus was successful at recruiting multiple partner companies to help create fun and inspiring ways to bring people together to accomplish their fitness goals. Slim Down Columbus drew the attention of several former college and professional athletes in the Columbus area – some of whom later became guest trainers for the brand.

“I first met Chuck as a client when I was with CN…” Matt commented on this newest venture, “…he and his marketing team helped identify strategies to streamline our marketing efforts and maximize growth. The results were mind-blowing. To now have a chance to work as a partner with him at T&B is quite an exciting opportunity!” Today Matt is the Co-Owner and SVP of Sales and Marketing at Take and Bake Marketing based out of Columbus, Ohio.
