BUILD YOUR BRIDGE
Bridge Videos: We shoot high-quality, edited videos with graphics and music, geared for social media. Our vibe is very loosey-goosey; focusing on people rather than products or services. Why? Nobody uses social media to look for ads. They want to see familiar faces and places – especially in an area where everyone knows one another. We never use scripts and, in the end, the video file is yours to keep. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be on camera. There are other creative ways to work together. Enter Kory.
Anchorman-Style Videos: Picture a much shorter and less milk-addicted Rob Burgundy. That’s Kory. He fears no camera lens, having performed comedy for years and done nearly 10,000 updates and news flashes for The Bridge. Give him the bullet points on your business or event. He’ll take it from there.
Live Broadcasts on Facebook: Live streaming video is here to stay. Let us broadcast your special event, fundraiser, happy hour, workshop – you name it. We’ve shown artists creating, chefs cooking and local events unfolding – all the while chatting directly with admirers and followers. The possibilities are endless and Kory is the perfect built-in host.
Boost through our Facebook Page: If you have a Facebook business page but don’t “boost” your posts (i.e. pay to promote them to a highly-targeted audience), Facebook only lets a tiny fraction of your followers see your content. Bridge members “boost” their videos through our page with its huge local following. We target the boosts to reach desired audiences based on location, interests, age, etc. Every Bridge video you’ve seen has been boosted through our page. You set the price and length of your campaign and we guarantee your post will be seen by thousands.
Social Media Management: Social media is tedious, time consuming, and hard to quantify, but when used effectively it will benefit your business. We’ve partnered with Memory Layne Creative to help create and/or curate your Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts (certain website platforms, too) so your clients and customers are always in the loop. This is a big money and time saver! Quote based on needs (Limited availability, 3 month minimum)
Seminars & Socials at The Innovation House: Take advantage of a variety of inexpensive seminars and free socials at The Bridge’s second home, the beautiful Innovation House in Magnolia (operated by the founders of Vivaldi browser). We cover everything from Facebook 101 to cross-promotional brainstorming sessions.
Sponsorship & Vending Opportunities: Our family-friendly events (Strawberry Festival in June, Fall Fest in October) routinely attract thousands. Our formal Bridge Ball, complete with a live red carpet broadcast, sells out in minutes. Our popular Facebook contests, Win-It Wednesday & Win-It Weekend (where winners must visit donating businesses to claim prizes) are shared hundreds of times. And we always work with members to create fun events, whether it’s a grand public festival or an open house at their business.
Free Business Counseling with Walter Manninen: Receive free and confidential one-on-one counseling sessions at The Innovation House with Walter Manninen of Salem Statue University's Massachusetts Small Business Development Center. Walter can help you create or update your business plan, price services or inventory, obtain funding, and so on.
