Connecting with the east of the river community is a complex and nuanced process. You need to make sure your message is clear, includes a variety of methods (both online and in the streets) and it needs to be timely, resident-focused and relevant. Communications needs to be packaged in such a way that they can be viewed and shared easily. Most importantly, they need to be respectful and with an understanding of our community. 

For over a decade, Congress Heights on the Rise has successfully gotten the word out on events, sales, issues, programs, services, housing, lost pets, etc. Pretty much anything happening east of he river has appeared on this site and anything really cool or interesting has had my fingerprints on it in some way, I have receipts in these streets! 

So, if your business, organization, nonprofit, government agency, company etc. is serious about doing real community outreach east of the river; you really should include this resource in your community engagement toolkit. Special rates for Ward 7 and Ward 8 based nonprofits. Important note: I won't work with anyone or on anything that does not have Ward 7 and Ward 8's best interest in mind. I don't need the money nor the aggravation. 

So if you are ready to go beyond flyers, beyond just contacting the local ANC, and beyond the occasional tweet or Facebook post you can inquire about advertising opportunities on Congress Heights on the Rise and my social media platforms. How much is it worth to you to be a success store vs. a cautionary tale? 

In addition, The Advoc8te (under her reSPIN footprint) is also available to work on a consulting basis with a select number of clients on community engagement, marketing, event and program planning. I've worked with a lot of organizations on some of the best projects and campaigns east of the river. I have no problem tooting my own horn; I'm very good at what I do and I tell it exactly like it is. 

My company reSPIN is a ward 8, woman-owned and minority small business. What's not to love about that?! So if you are ready for a major marketing and/or community engagement upgrade, contact me for details and availability (the reality is I am always in demand but I may be able to slip you in). Make the most of your message or at the very least avoid a major mess!
