I am thankful to be included again this year as a Constant Contact All Star. I am proud of my clients that have also received this year's award!
Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Little Cottage Services, LLC, a marketing services company, has received the 2012 All Star Award from Constant Contact®, Inc., the trusted marketing adviser to more than half a million small organizations worldwide. Each year, Constant Contact bestows the All Star Award to a select group of businesses and nonprofits who are successfully leveraging online marketing tools to engage their customer base, and drive success for their organization. Little Cottage Services’ results ranked among the top 10% of Constant Contact’s international customer base.Nicole Arnold, owner of Little Cottage Services, is the marketing maven that takes small businesses from invisible to irresistible.
After growing her first entrepreneurial effort using strategic, tenacious email marketing, Nicole realized she could help other small business owners develop email marketing campaigns that would go beyond spotlighting products and services. Little Cottage was created to help entrepreneurs build meaningful, lasting relationships with their clients; something Nicole had been practicing for years.
With an educational background in social work, sociology, and multicultural relations, Nicole honed her knack for relationship development. Her early career compounded this talent, when she observed and facilitated relationships among elementary school students. Today, the lessons gleaned from her education, professional and entrepreneurial experiences underscore the Little Cottage mission, and that is simply, to identify and develop the relationships that will drive visibility and turn clients into raving fans.
Nicole shared, “We’re happy to be recognized by Constant Contact for achieving strong marketing results and connecting with our customers. Constant Contact’s tools have helped us stay connected to our customers and build stronger relationships with them. The relationships that we have developed with our customers are directly linked to the overall success of our business.”
Nicole goes on to share that she is even more proud of the organizations that she has worked with that have also achieved this distinction.
