From the beginning, I’ve relied on help from contractors to help with projects, especially when it gets really busy or if they have expertise in an area where I needed help.
One of those contractors has been Thomas Jones which many of you have already met.
Thomas worked in a print shop while in college training to be a graphic designer. For the past three years, he has been a website developer for a national companies office located in Montgomery, Alabama. Basically, he was made for what he’ll be doing at Dogwood.
Thomas also started his own company focusing on website building and search engine optimization called Dogwood Designs.
This past year we have worked on a lot of projects together and I approached Thomas and asked what it would take for him to come on board full-time. We came to an agreement that we would merge our two companies together – thus Dogwood Media Solutions was born.
Thomas will be working on website designs, graphic designs, and search engine optimization for the most part.
While I’ll be helping in all of those areas – this will allow me to focus on social media marketing, email marketing, business management, and growth.
I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be introducing more new people in the next few months based on the response we have already received.
SO WHY THE NAME DOGWOOD?
Thomas and I are both Christians and our business will always be rooted deeply in our beliefs. We wanted a name that reflected this.
The legend of the dogwood tree is that the cross Jesus was crucified on was made from its wood. God decreed that the dogwood tree would from that day on never grow large enough to be used to make a cross again.
Its blossoms are four-petaled with two long petals and two short petals, forming the shape of the sign of the cross.
WILL THERE BE CHANGES?
Yes. But not much.
We are switching bookkeeping from Freshbooks to Quickbooks. If you have saved a credit card, you’ll need to do it again with your first billing.
With Quickbooks, there is also the option to make payments as a transfer from your bank account in addition to credit cards or checks.
Also, we have rented office space! Please note our new address for any future payments:
Some of the more exciting changes are the new things we will be able to offer you.
Here are our core services:
Website Design, Development, Management, and Hosting
Social Media Marketing
Search Engine Optimization and Marketing (SEO/SEM)
This is only the beginning! We have two major projects we are working on completing in the early part of 2019 that we can’t wait to announce at a later date.
Plus, we’ll have some great Dogwood merchandise with our new logo on it too that may show up at your business at some point.
If you have a second and made it down this far in the email – take a moment to shoot Thomas an email at [email protected] so he’ll know who you are. We will be going through each customer account to make sure he is familiar with each one of you over the next few weeks.
As always – have any questions? Shoot me an email at my new address – [email protected].
