RE: Would you kindly vote for Ideagility?
Many of you know that we’ve applied for a Mission Main Street grant from Chase Manhattan Bank — to stay in the running we need your vote and we’re getting close to the wire.
If you haven’t voted you may be swamped. You may have work priorities that are all consuming — so why bother? Who ever heard of a boutique digital agency from Portland, Oregon winning a big, fat grant to help more people anyway? And why should you care? Great questions, all. Here is our answer:
Doing good in the world matters to us at Ideagility
We’re on a mission to deliver the highest quality services and customer service around. It’s why we created big business marketing for small business budgets. We’re small business owners too and our company focuses exclusively on small businesses; they need us. We help each one to be found by the folks who need them most right now.
Doing good in the world may not be the first priority of most in our industry but it is ours; we’re honest, straight-talkers who’ve created transparent, flat-fee based services to deliver real business growth. Winning a Mission Main Street grant would help us to serve up real growth for many, many more businesses — and to train many more young college grads in the critical skills that matter most to businesses and to careers.
We’re privileged to work with some of the best small businesses on the planet. Disaster companies and janitorial providers. Engineers. Health and beauty and specialty medical providers. Folks that solve urgent problems every day. We love our customers and they love us right back — but they wouldn’t stay with us if we didn’t deliver startling new profits each month.
We serve business owners all over the US and about half of them have been with us for more than a year. One quarter of our customers have partnered with us for more than two years. But we’re just getting started. We build and maintain websites, lead social and organic efforts and manage crack advertising campaigns online. With fully accountable, direct response digital marketing it’s all about the numbers — that’s us too.
So if, like us, you’re a straight-talking do-gooder who values transparency, honesty and fully accountable marketing results, taking a moment to vote just may be worth the bother. In the words of Kurt Vonnegut:
Still and all, why bother? Here’s my answer. Many people need desperately to receive this message: I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.
