Africatown Media and The Elite Collective partner to provide small business marketing support.
By Omari "The Big O" Salisbury
Seattle, WA - Africatown Media today announced a new partnership with Seattle based creative agency; The Elite Collective in an innovative effort to generate business opportunities for the creative community (graphic designers, photographers, videographers, etc) that have for the most part seen their business grind to a halt while at the same time offer marketing and advertising support for small businesses in our community.
This partnership will allow for small businesses to produce low cost marketing materials as well as FREE advertising of their business across the Africatown Media platforms.
The Elite Collective, a longtime partner of Africatown Media, has a long track record of working with businesses and organizations in our community such as The Jerk Shack, The Royal Esquire, City Teriyaki, United Negro College Fund Pacific Northwest, Northwest TAP Alliance, Earls Cuts and Styles, Black Historic Society of Washington, 100 Black Parents, Northwest African American Museum, Urban League of Seattle, and provides the following services: Graphic Design, Website Development, Photography, Videography, Photo Booths, Motion Graphics, and Event Productions.
According to Omari Salisbury, General Manager, Africatown Media, the creative industry has been hit hard by the recent shutdowns and to him it was important that Africatown Media do what it can to provide some sort of community based stimulus for the creative community.
“At Africatown Media we were looking for ways to keep our creative community working. The creative community appreciates donations but we know that what will bring real sustained relief is when they can thrive in their passion and get paid doing so. We wanted to find ways to allow them to work and as well bring tremendous value and relief to small businesses in our community that are also really suffering right now due to the current circumstances.” said Salisbury
