We got a call recently and the voice on the other end of the phone said: “I’m Looking For A Marietta Web Development Company”. My response was, of course, WE are a Marietta Web Development Company – How can I help you?
They shared that they were interested in rebuilding their website and wanted to work with a local Marietta web developer. For some businesses, it makes sense to work with a local company. It demonstrates their commitment to local business. It can be convenient to pop in for meetings or drop off material. It can also represent the beginning of a longer term relationship that may extend beyond just business interests.
Marietta, Georgia is a wonderful community, with a history dating back to civil war times, and extending through to today as the new Home Of The Braves, with the opening of the new Braves Stadium at SunTrust Park.
The business community is one of the strongest in the nation. The Cobb Chamber is one of the countries top rated Chambers. In fact, we have been nominated for their annual Small Business of the Year by our clients. Additionally, there are 9 local Business Associations in Cobb. I am one of the founders of the Coalition of Cobb County Business Associations. The CCCBA meets every other month to share ideas on how to better serve the local business community as well as how to contribute to local education and community initiatives. Annually, I conduct the Annual CCCBA Summit that brings in the new Presidents from each of the Associations for an all-day training on everything they need to know about running their Association.
I was able to share with my caller a guide on How To Choose A Web Development Company that we recently published. We scheduled a meeting at one of the great restaurants on the Marietta Square and laid out a plan for their new website that would accomplish their objectives and work with their budget.
It looks like we’ll be working together. I am excited to be able to help them with their WordPress website, but more importantly, for me, I am looking forward to developing a long-term relationship with them.
