Despite today’s economic conditions one small business is expanding. The Clearwater Florida-based Web design, SEO and managed hosting company, GreatCircle Studios, announced the opening of a GreatCircle branch office in the New York City metro area.
GreatCircle has entered into an agreement with the New York-based marketing and branding company NavisInk to form a New York area branch office for GreatCircle Studios. The agreement will allow New York area clients to personally meet with GreatCircle staff and work on their Web projects with a local representative.
GreatCircle president Jason Stanard said, “We have seen significant growth over the first part of this year and felt we had to expand our business locally as well as nationally. We specifically targeted the New York area where we already have an existing client base. We have found that clients sometimes prefer to work with a company that has a local presence where they can physically meet and discuss their projects. We have been working with NavisInk over the past two years so the move to expand our physical presence to New York just made sense.”
John DiFolco, GreatCircle rep for the New York area and owner of Navesink Group said, “Partnering with the premier Web design firm, GreatCircle Studios in Florida provides our clients new services while maintaining a personal local relationship that is desired when working on digital media projects. We are extremely excited to grow with GreatCircle Studios and build a strong digital marketing presence in the North East.”
GreatCircle Studios is currently expanding their technology staff and developing new services including Facebook Business marketing, Mobile Website creation and advanced Search Engine Optimization packages for small businesses.
Mr. Stanard commented on the company’s expansion saying, “We have been able to acquire top talent within the Clearwater/Tampa Bay area at competitive rates. This allows us to further expand within Florida as well as other geo-targeted areas around the U.S. I believe that a key element to our growth is our audience-driven approach to Web design and SEO. In today’s highly competitive marketplace I feel our client’s appreciate the type of personal service we deliver,” Stanard concluded.
