About Kim Merritt
Kim has been creating ecommerce solutions and online marketing campaigns for twenty years. Her agency, The URL Dr, works with small and mid-sized businesses, helping them become more successful online.

Growing up in a family owned funeral business, Kim is a fourth generation self-employed entrepreneur. Having started her first company, Kim’s Khocolate, a manufacturer of custom molded Khocolates, at the tender age of eleven, and her second company, an internet retailer of brand name dinnerware, she knows first hand the challenges that small and mid-sized businesses face.
Kim’s background allows her to see beyond just custom web design or an local search campaign. She can look at the situation from the eyes of the CEO, the CFO, the Director of Sales, the Director of Marketing, or the business owner (having been all of those things at one time or another, herself). Kim is very successful at guiding clients into profitable online decisions, based on their own unique business model.
