Integrity Marketing Solutions is founded by two friends who believed in each other, and the power of What If?
Kyle and Jennifer were just a couple of kids at the time. Kyle was an estate attorney and Jennifer was the marketing officer for a bank holding company. Together, they introduced trust services to banks in three markets. The pair wrote the policies and procedures manuals, trained staff and hosted workshops. Their efforts brought in literally millions of dollars of assets under management for the holding company.
Then one day Kyle and Jennifer looked at each other and asked the big question:
What if we did this on our own? What if we took what we have learned here and used it to help other attorneys?
This is the story of Integrity Marketing, and the power of dreaming bigger ... of asking What if?
Kyle Krull is the president of Integrity Marketing Solutions, and also president of the Law Offices of Kyle E. Krull, P.A., a trusts & estates law firm located in Overland Park, KS.

His law firm serves as the primary “laboratory” for IMS marketing strategies and he personally reviews and edits all legal content before publication, including content for the daily blogs, practice areas and newsletters.
Kyle’s professional credentials include:
Elder Law and Estate Planning attorneys across the country credit Jennifer C. Goddard for helping them achieve success in growing their practices to profitability. Her knowledge of the business side of Elder Law and Estate Planning practices is deftly woven together with marketing expertise and sage advice that is still not taught in law school.

Audiences find her engaging and accessible, and appreciate the practical insights and information she offers.

For nearly a decade before that, she was an award-winning newspaper reporter and editor for a central Missouri newspapers syndicate. Jennifer received several Missouri Press Association awards for writing and reporting, and was recognized for Excellence in Journalism by the University of Missouri.

Bandit is the official Office Dog of Integrity Marketing Solutions. Bandit keeps a mental note of all employees and trespassers who enter the office. He also enjoys his lunch time walks (we had to invest in doggie poop bags), as well as his morning trips to the coffee shop across the street. Every now and then, he crosses paths with another local office dog, and they discuss the importance of their jobs. Bandit loves a good pet, neck scratch, butt scratch, whatever scratch. His ideal request is to lick EVERYONE in the face for about 5 minutes each, but he understands this is a bit unreasonable.
