collaborating Through Communication

covering Tampa Bay

Covering Tampa Bay is a unique collaborative of nonprofits, agencies, groups, and individuals in four counties in the Tampa Bay area. Their goal is to collectively increase health insurance coverage. We contracted with them for nearly 4 years to provide a monthly newsletter, maintain social media, develop and maintain a website, assist with weekly online meetings and quarterly onsite meetings, and create a communications package to disseminate their model nationwide.

Our partnership with Covering Tampa Bay provided us with some great insights into how collaborative efforts can be enhanced and strengthened with effective communications in a variety of media and contexts. We can do the same for you and your partners!

Do you need and can you afford a website?

Small businesses are wonderful creatures, especially when they do what they do best. Reaching and engaging customers? Maybe not the best.

“In a world wheree-commerce and digital outreach are becoming commonplace in business, it’s rare to find a company without a website. But according to a study by portfolio company Visual Objects, one-third (29%) of all 30-million American small businesses plan to create a website for the first time in 2020.” (Emphasis is ours.) Yet, 90% of customers used the internet to find local businesses in 2019, according to business solutions site Bright Local.

The Fox Business report on the topic further quoted Visual Objects, saying “neglecting to invest in a website could cause businesses to lack credibility and miss out on potential new customers.”

Interestingly, 29% of business owners said they plan to improve their website this year over other methods of marketing like social media, SEO, and digital marketing – a method that 25% of businesses plan to start using. Seventy percent of small businesses said they will invest in social media, which is the most highly successful form of marketing.

So yes, small businesses need a website. Can you afford one? Yes! We offer competitive websites well below the market rate, with all the bells and whistles needed to promote your business and/or sell your product(s). Our customers tend to agree! 

Though 90% of consumers use the internet to find local businesses, many small businesses have no website.

Montana Legacy Builders

When we got a call from Dan Richter, he already had a website for his contracting and building work. But there was a problem. He had recently relocated and wanted to refocus his work in his new location. He wanted someone to “start from scratch” on a new website. He also needed help with search engine optimization so customers could find him easily. We developed a new logo to help with cross-media marketing and linked to social media to complete the “package.”  You can count on us for a one-stop answer to your multiple communication needs!

positive family partners

Positive Family Partners is a Florida nonprofit serving children birth to 3 and their families and caregivers. They provide early intervention services and promote positive parenting practices. They had a website, but it was in need of updating to better reflect their values and mission. We provided a revision for them that allows them to showcase their work to the public and to potential funders. And we did it on a limited budget!

Reigning Cats & Dogs

When your dog sitter is looking for someone to revamp her website, you just know you have to do as good a job as she does with your pets!

The existing website was stuck in a years’ old design when we revamped it. We tweaked the existing content and added a sweet little slider with photos of all her clients. We resisted the urge to put our two front and center, though!
