PME 360, a Portland, Maine-based local Internet marketing company, is pleased to announce its acceptance into The Maine Center for Entrepreneurial Development’s (MCED) Maine Business Incubation System (MeBIS) program.
With a commitment to grow its business in Maine and provide quality local jobs to Maine’s talented but under-utilized workforce, PME 360’s involvement with MCED, an organization committed to developing Maine businesses, is a natural fit.
PME 360 CEO Ryan Paul Adams, a graduate of the University of Southern Maine, notes: “I am really excited to be working with MCED and working towards the continued growth of PME 360. As a business owner, we need support, tools, education, and mentoring to help get us to the next level and MCED can help us with all of that and more. There is so much to accomplish in the local Internet marketing services business; it’s really endless. Having a partner like MCED helps us get the resources we need much faster so that we can build and scale a great Maine tech company in Maine.”
PME 360’s business model is unique, with operations taking place primarily in Portland, Maine, while the majority of clients are located in the Chicago metropolitan area. Competition is fierce in the online marketing industry, both locally and nationally. To secure a niche in this challenging industry, PME 360 offers a distinctively comprehensive marketing system that combines content, mobile, social, seo, maps optimization, review marketing, reputation management, design, hosting, software, lead tracking, and reporting.
Susan Ruhlin, Program Manager at MCED, comments on the announcement: “The Maine Center for Entrepreneurial Development is pleased to welcome Ryan Paul Adams of PME 360 as a client. MCED strives to work with innovative, scalable, high-growth companies that have the potential to create Maine jobs and positively impact Maine's entrepreneurial ecosystem. PME 360 has made significant progress developing a large part of a specific market segment and we are excited to be working with the PME 360 team.”
A MeBIS membership provides appropriate, focused, in-depth support to entrepreneurs by utilizing networks and expertise both inside Maine and beyond to create jobs and sustainable enterprises. Services include business coaching, workshops, networking events, access to an extensive mentor network, CEO roundtables, and mentor office hours.
With the help of MCED resources, Adams believes PME 360 will be able to tap into the $37 billion per year local Internet marketing industry, strengthen client relationships and provide quality technology jobs for Mainers for years to come.
