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.
