"Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind."
It was the summer of 1991 when 8-year-old, Kerri begged her father to plant bamboo in their yard, just like her grandparents had in theirs. She loved how beautiful it was as it banded together, building a mesmerizing wall that danced in the wind. Agreeing, her father took 2 tiny stalks from her grandparents and planted them in their field….25 years later an entire acre of the yard is a continuously growing bamboo forest. The plant flourished, it spread and it dominated – all with quiet unassuming grace and tenacity...
...While this may be a nuisance in a backyard – it is exactly the way you want your business to grow!
Organically. Cohesively. Powerfully.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
When Kerri started offering freelance marketing services her customer base and aspirations for promoting those clients in every way that they deserved quickly began to outweigh the hours in her week.
Also, she recognized that acting as a 'jack-of-all-trades' she would also be a master of none – doing the companies she represented a disservice. So, she continued to manage the skills in which she was most masterful - and began to seek out other 'masters' to create a cohesive and powerful team! (*A 'masterpiece' you might say!)
Together - harnessing the unique skills and insights of each member, the Bamboo Marketing Solutions team creates an amazingly powerful marketing machine that will represent your business in a way that builds value, trust and continues to grow a life-long customer base.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
Does your business continue to grow, adapt and change with the ever altering marketing landscape?
If you do not have a full-service marketing department - the answer is likely no.
Even with a talented individual at the helm of your marketing plans - a one person marketing department is ill-equipped to masterfully manage all aspects of an effective full-scale marketing plan.
Instead of hiring a different guru to manage: your site, your SEO, your blog, your brand, your reputation, your social media...and all other aspects of your business - leave it to us. Our team and marketing efforts have a proven track record of:
Strength. Flexibility. & Endurance
…all which help to foster your businesses
