The Gurus Go “Mad” to Celebrate our Birthday!
As an East Greenwich based business, the RI Web Gurus have a strong commitment to take part in our community and to also give back. In an effort to do so, we decided to celebrate March Madness with some giveaways!
Why, you may ask? Well, March marks the anniversary of our first year in business! It’s been quite a year of growth, change, and triumphs. As a growing business, we moved offices three times, built two websites for our own company, and created some pretty awesome websites for our clients. So, we’d like to celebrate by giving back to those who helped in our success.
As the incoming President of our local East Greenwich based BNI Chapter, I thought it would be a great opportunity to develop a website specifically for our chapter. BNI served as one of the first influences of our business success and we would like to show our appreciation. Our chapter currently has 24 members and so far in our fiscal year (April to February) we have surpassed $835,000 of business within the group! We are looking to have a BIG year next year, and having a website will serve as a great introduction to further explain what BNI is, talk about what makes our group different, and highlight each of our members.
Next, as part of the East Greenwich Chambers of Commerce, we wanted to give back to that group as well. With the recent reopening of the Greenwich Odeum, it was a natural fit! We are currently working with the President, Frank Prosnitz, and are very excited to launch this site for the new chapter of the Odeum. We love the story of this theatre and the strong sense of community that supports it. The new custom design website will feature upcoming acts and have a blog to share news and events of both future and past performances!
Finally, we are going to pick one local Main Street business at random to develop a site for using our small business package! There is no need to apply, although if you would like to submit your company to ensure you are considered for the drawing, feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by our Facebook page and submit the business name. Please feel free to also share this opportunity with other Main Street based businesses!
Our small business package is designed for small businesses that want a clean, fast website to support their business. What’s great about them is that there is no heavy lifting on part of the client; we take care of everything from the build, to the content and the images!
Here is what it entails:
- 4 pages – Home | About | Services | Contact
- Written Content – We will write all of the content for your website based on a series of questions we will ask you
- Images – We will source 5 appropriate images for your website and size them for use on your website
- Basic Search Engine Optimization – We will perform basic “On-Page SEO” on your site, this includes appropriate title tags, meta descriptions and keywords
- Hosting – We will host your files on our server
- One week delivery – Yes we work hard to get the website up and running in just one week
So stay tuned, we’ll be announcing our winner on Monday, March 4th!
Please also mark your calendars; we’ll be hosting a one year celebration party at our office on Thursday, March 28th from 5:30 – 8:00. We invite you all to stop in and share in the RI Web Gurus turning 1!
As you can imagine, we’ve got a lot of work to do; but we’re excited about giving back to the town that has helped us grow. Throughout the month as each website goes live, we’ll be sure to let you know… and we’ll also keep you informed about our birthday party!– The Gurus
