It’s our pleasure at the urbanmoms.ca Marketplace this week to bring you Ariane’s story:
Foundation Studio is a Marketing & Promotions company that focuses on The Start-up Business. As an Entrepreneur myself, I know how hard it is to stay on track of your marketing efforts; there are just too many corners begging to be cut! Tasks just waiting to be shifted to tomorrow’s to-do list. Unfortunately, marketing always seems to be the one shifted!!
I started Foundation Studio because I love hearing about someone’s lifestyle change towards Entrepreneurship – I get so excited when I find out a friend has taken the leap that I am always coming up with neat ideas on how they can market their venture affordably.
Foundation Studio was more due to the fact I was helping my husband launch and market his business – people started to notice Foundation Studio as the company’s promotional rep and seek me out for their company. Normally I would’ve stayed local, but now I have clients in the States and Overseas!
The services that Foundation Studio and I provide are general marketing advice and guidance, web, blog and graphic design as well as celebrity swag bag placement and media coverage. The clientele that I serve ranges from schools to local and national community non-profits to corporate and mom & pop companies.
I think the difference between my company and that of a larger marketing firm is that I take the time to get to know my client and their product – I won’t represent a client or product that I can’t get excited about – I need to make sure that I feel their passion as well – so basically their business and wellbeing are just as important to me as it is to them – it’s not about the paycheque for me, it’s about my client actually achieving their goals!
There are huge things happening around the office lately, we’ve been nominated for Mom Entrepreneur of the Year and we also just announced the launch of the Premiere Work From Home Expo – again, helping others find their Entrepreneurial path to success!
