Craf2m celebrates 10 years helping local small businesses survive and thrive with "Small Business Smart Marketing
PRESCOTT, AZ (August 3, 2020) — Craf2m is celebrating 10 years in business this year! We’re proud of our longevity, especially considering the statistics: about 20% of small businesses fail within their first year, and 50% by their fifth. We love living and working in the Prescott area … and the experience is even richer because of those we live and work with. Not only are we proud of our longevity, but we’re also proud of the growth we’ve helped create for our clients through all the ups and downs (2020, we’re looking at you). Our work has run the gamut—from outreach to sales to advertising to education—and our clients’ results have, too.
A lot has changed in the past decade. When Craf2m launched in 2011, LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” and Adele’s “Someone Like You” were at the top of the charts. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” the final installment in the Harry Potter movie franchise was the highest-grossing film of the year in the US. Facebook, launched in 2004, was growing in popularity (it grew from 1 million users to 800 million by the end of 2011). Other social media channels like Pinterest, Snapchat, and Instagram were in their infancies. In 2010, 970 million people were on social media. By 2020, that number jumped to 2.96 billion. Ten years ago, the iPhone 4s was the newest to market, and the first iPad was released just the year before. Between 2011 and 2019, people’s daily time spent online on mobile devices jumped from 32 minutes to 132 minutes (and it’s probably more than that now).
Marketing has also changed. Arguably, the last 10 years have seen the greatest technological growth ever. As people's attention shifted from offline to online media, marketing followed suit. Consumers now see and hear messages in real time, almost everywhere they go … if they’re not looking at a device in their hand, they’re hearing an ad while pumping gas.
The ribbon cutting for Makala Chadwick's State Farm Insurance office was held Thursday July 29, 2021. Their office is located at 3700 N. Robert Road Suite 1, Prescott Valley, AZ. Thanks to the Prescott Regulators and their Shady Ladies and all Ambassadors who attended and assisted with the ribbon cutting. Our M.C. was Prescott's Chamber Hunter Powell.
In attendance was Jeff Timm representing Congressman Paul Gosar's office; Judy Sulltrop for Senator Mark Kelly; Ambassador Susan Cohen and Sheri Heiney for the Prescott Chamber of Commerce. Jeff Timm presented a Certificate of Appreciation from Congressman Gosar. Judy Sulltrop spoke on behalf of Senator Mark Kelly, and Ambassador Susan Cohen spoke for the Prescott Chamber and all the Ambassadors. Chamber staff member Stephanie Miller and member of the Prescott Young Professionals welcomed Makayla and staff as well. The Prescott Chamber of Commerce Board was represented by Chamber CEO Sheri Heiney who presented the "First Dollar" Certificate.
Our last ribbon cutting was a ground-breaking held the Prescott Center for the Arts (PCA) located on 208 N. Marina St. in downtown Prescott.
Mayor Greg Mengarelli was there representing the city and presented a Certificate of Recognition to Robyn Allen of the Prescott Center for the Arts. Gillian Haley Chamber Board member presented a Certificate of Special Recognition to Robyn. Jeff Timm attended and represented Congressman Paul Gosar’s office. Robyn Allen spoke briefly and was grateful for all the community support the center is receiving. The Project Architect for the future build was represented by Bill Otwell of Otwell & Associates, and Haley construction was represented by project contractor Allan Crary. Our MC was University of Arizona chamber intern, Lucas Forray.
The PCA building is on the historic register so stop by and take a tour, for local history buffs it is fascinating to read the various plaques there about the history. The building was the old Sacred Heart Catholic Church and rectory dated from 1878. Rather than elaborate here, look at the photo below with the history, it once had a steeple over 115 feet tall and was struck by lightning several times. They have great Courtyard and artist’s gallery.
Construction hasn’t started yet but it should be an outstanding addition. They were given an anonymous donation of 3 million dollars, unheard of these days and I think critically important to our downtown.
The ribbon cutting held Thursday July 15 was for the Prescott Executive Offices located at 3623 Crossings Drive in Prescott. They offer a professional address, office suite with availability for conferences for businesses. This can be a big savings for small businesses that don't want to rent a small office space. They also provide a photo studio for those needing special photos, or backdrops along with lighting.
In attendance and speaking at the ribbon cutting: Judy Sultrop from U.S. Senator Mark Kelly's office; Jeff Timm representing U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar; and Councilman Phill Goode from the City of Prescott. The first dollar Certificate was given by Chamber Board Member Keith Nichols. Representing Prescott Executive Offices was Erik Knight.
Our last ribbon cutting was held at 220 South Marina at the Center for the Future. As the Center's brochure explains, "The Prescott Center for the Future is a hub for innovation, incubation, attraction, growth and retention of companies and talent in key cutting-edge technology industries including Cybersecurtiy, Global Security, Agricultural Technology, Aerospace, Materials, and other related services." The brochure also listed the key mission: "To grow the number of quality-high paying technology jobs in the Prescott area by educating communities."
Our Master of Ceremony was Sanford Cohen. In attendance was U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema's Office Inder Gunnala, U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar's Office, Jeff Timm, Yavapai Country Board of Supervisors Supervisor Harry Oberg, and Mayor Greg Mengarelli.
