Who Are We

OVERVIEW & GOALS

We are honored to begin this journey with the National Montford Point Marine Association, anticipating an opportunity to capture your significant event this May through our expert videography services. Without a Digital Marketing Strategist on their team, the Association is also considering enhancing their digital presence with our Social Media Daily Posting Program. We are eager to support your critical fundraising efforts, which are essential for preserving your center and honoring the distinguished legacy of the original Montford Point Marines.

GOALS:

  • Create Compelling Content: Our first goal is to produce a professional, engaging 2-5 minute video of the May event, capturing the essence of your cause and community involvement.

  • Enhance Online Visibility: Improve and update the Montford Point Marine Association's website and social media platforms to accurately reflect and promote your mission.

  • Explore Marketing Opportunities: Assess and potentially implement strategies for improving SEO, engaging in paid advertising, and enhancing overall brand awareness to promote specific services or products effectively.​

While mindful of your initial budget, we believe that these foundational elements are crucial for your project's success. We are committed to working with you to maximize the impact of each dollar invested and explore flexible solutions that align with your financial considerations.

We look forward to discussing these plans in more detail and are excited about the possibility of bringing these visions to life, ensuring that the digital reflection of your organization resonates with the vibrant spirit of its real-world presence.
