How it Works
Grapevine's marketing services are scaled to your needs. We offer straightforward packages for smaller business that need the basics, and we offer comprehensive consulting for businesses that need more in-depth work.
Straightforward packages for smaller businesses
We'll help you choose the marketing option(s) that are the best fit for your customer audience and your goals. Then we’ll handle the rest, from writing and photography to website launch or ad placement/social media posting, depending on the option(s) you choose.
All you have to do is spend a little time getting us acquainted with your business, and then give us feedback and final approval on anything we create. There’s no longterm contract, so you can test the waters without a commitment. You’ll often see results within a few weeks. Read our testimonials.
For businesses that want to develop more in-depth marketing strategies
We'll work collaboratively with you to develop a creative strategy, built around your goals and your audience.
Our professional experience includes B2C and B2B marketing for national brands, from SEO and custom web development to digital/social strategy and print campaigns.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I hire you for just one small project?
Yes! While we can help with big projects and ongoing work, we also have lots of clients who just ask us to do a single project here and there. We are happy to fit in wherever you need us.
What do I have to do to get ready?
Not much! We can work with text and images you already have, or we can start from scratch. The first step is to just get in touch, and from there we'll make it as easy as possible for you. Contact us.
Do you require a long-term contract?
We don't require a long-term contract. We can go one project at a time. For projects like social media advertising, we can go month-to-month. For websites, your only financial commitment to us is the initial website development cost. You'll pay a reasonable annual fee for hosting — this pays for the servers and software that keep your website live on the internet. That arrangement is directly through the web hosting service, so you aren't tied to us.
Can you work with me if I'm far away from you?
Yes! We've worked with clients hundreds of miles away. We'll make sure that you're always up to date with projects via phone, email, text, and/or video calls — whichever methods you're comfortable with.
We also make regular visits to Chicago, Indianapolis, Colorado's Western Slope, Southeast Florida, and Norfolk, VA, and we'd be happy to arrange a face-to-face meeting when we're in the area. Get in touch!
Will I be able to see social media posts before you publish them?
We'll never publish a website, social media post, or any other project without your approval. Our process allows for plenty of opportunity for you to give us feedback on our drafts, and then we'll make revisions accordingly. We also spend time up front to get to know each client and to develop a clear understanding of what they have in mind, so we find clients are usually very happy with our drafts!
What if I'm not great with technology?
That's okay, because we are! You don't have to have an understanding of social media or other technical knowledge to work with us. We won't speak marketing lingo. We'll do our best to explain the background on any recommendation we make, and we're always happy to answer questions. We'll do the hard part, and make it easy for you.
How much do you charge?
You can start with a social media campaign for around $160. We'll be happy to quote your project — just get in touch!
