As you may have noticed, we have been talking a bit about The American Folk Festival on the Bangor Waterfront. We have mentioned that we have built an App, been on the ground floor also with the website. We think the Folk Festival is pretty darned special. It is our sponsorship and support to the festival. We also design and execute the strategy for social media. It is what Sephone can offer to the Festival, to the community and to the somewhere around 100+ visitors that come to enjoy our city.
Ok. We admit it. As a volunteer for the festival, we aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty. And many of our customers are the same way. We see them. In fact one of our customers who has long retired logged some serious volunteer duty, 80+ hours in the last two weeks! We do it. Not because we have all kinds of extra time on our hands or our businesses are slow, it is nothing further from the truth. We take the long view. We get to strengthen our relationships with our existing customers who are attending the same meetings, same functions as we are. We get to meet potential clients and make new friends.
We are Different At the Core
We think strategically. We take the long view of what is best solution in the long run. We do this when working with our clients. Where are we going? What is it going to take to get there? Sometimes that means business for us. Sometimes it doesn’t. But it always means a win for our area, our city and a move in the direction of making it a better place to live, work, and YES, MOVE your business to or EXPAND your business here. It may not happen tomorrow, but it happens eventually. When we started Sephone in 2002, there was still a lot of dial-up, few cell phones and a waterfront in Bangor with a lot of sand piles. But together, we have left those days behind us. And next week, along with many others, have a Folk Festival meeting to plan for 2015. Hope to see you there.
