It's been a year of progress, growth and expansion at Pitzer Digital . . . with a few growing pains as well.
We opened our new office in Neligh in August 2014. Less than 18 months later, we've come to the conclusion that we've already outgrown our building. What was once a cozy office is better described now as crammed.
We've added four new full-time positions since April, along with two more subsidiaries to our company making that four subsidiaries under Pitzer Digital. We also have several part-time positions that are vital to our success. Last year we were referred to as the fastest-growing company in Neligh. Now, we're one of the fastest-growing marketing and media companies in Northeast Nebraska.
As with any type of entrepreneurship, growth also means growing pains, but we've worked through many of those to become better as we've become bigger. Adding two additional employees in the last month has helped, too.
Besides website development and general marketing and printing services, Pitzer Digital now oversees marketing for several companies, including national campaigns. We design magazine ads, write radio commercials and create TV spots. We purchase media rotations for our customers for the best rate of investment. Simply put, we know media very well, so we know where to be, when to be there and how much it's worth.
Media has become a major part of our company. We have four subsidiaries of news media websites representing the local counties of Antelope, Knox, Holt and Boone. We began in Antelope at the request of local businesses and have expanded into the other areas thanks to more requests and continued support.
We're often asked what our secret to success is. After all, our social media ratio of engagement is consistently at the top of all media in the state. That's not even including our partnerships with other media, such as radio and television. We are young but not little, and we are definitely mighty.
As for the secret to success, we'll keep that to ourselves and continue plugging along reinvesting in our company to better serve our clients.
We wouldn't be here without our clients and thank them for their trust in us. Trust and commitment has let to great partnerships. We enjoy working with other media and willingly share our content with proper attribution. We're proud of our great relationship with other media.
Marketing and media go hand in hand, and it's been a great expansion of Pitzer Digital. Our motto has always been "Helping Small Businesses Succeed Is Our Business." Now, we're helping more rural communities share their news via today's technology.
It's an exciting time in rural communities, and we're proud to play a role in helping them grow. Now, if only we had a little more space as we continue to grow.
