Be the Best Friend a Business Needs
Is your business doing well right now? Or is it struggling? Horsefly is here to help connect that gap – with a three-way partnership program to boost Citrus County* businesses and innovation.
With the economic realities of Covid-19 well upon us, we at Horsefly Group put our heads together to figure out what we could do to help. What we came up with, is that we don’t save lives, but we can help save businesses here in Citrus County, Florida.
We see our local dairy having to pivot from dumping milk that was contracted to go to our now-closed schools, to – almost overnight – figuring out how to open different distribution models.
We see our restaurants having to revise menus for takeout, create social posts to market themselves harder than ever, and update websites.
We see businesses who are completely closed, who need to be ready to recover – quickly! – when restrictions ease, with better sales than they’ve ever had.
And we also see some businesses who are either largely unaffected, or who are doing better than ever.
So we propose alliances of “best friends in business,” with Horsefly Group as the bridge that pays it forward. Many local business owners are in Rotary together, or otherwise interact through other benevolent activities (YMCA, Kings Bay Restoration, Community Food Bank, and more), and of course through our Citrus County Chamber of Commerce.
If your business is unaffected or doing better than ever, consider bringing Horsefly in for some strategic marketing work, or just marketing execution (we have some ideas below). It’s a great investment in your own future growth and brand equity, but it also allows us to “pay it forward” with the same amount of work for another company who may not be able to pay anything right now.
We’ll “charge” them just 50%, but it will be under the honor system of “pay when they can” or even “pay us in gift certificates.”
