Small Business BC (SBBC): Capturing the spirit of the business community in a 45-Video interview series
Small Business BC’s innovative approach and programs have been recognized by a plethora of national and international awards, thus solidifying their reputation as a truly exceptional business resource.
SBBC’s mission is to provide entrepreneurs with products and services that will assist their successful entry into small business ventures. As part of SBBC’s community outreach efforts, they launched SBBC Awards to recognize the hard work of small businesses across British Columbia.
SBBC knew they wanted to reach a wider audience, attract more businesses from across BC (not just the lower mainland), increase the awareness of SBBC’s services and foster a deeper connection with the communities that SBBC serves. SBBC approached TheMarketingsmith with a challenging and unique request: film 45 SBBC award finalist videos and artistically direct each one. Our primary role was to liaise with small businesses throughout their entire SBBC videography journey and reinforce the SBBC brand values and true spirit of the award ceremony. Results? TheMarketingsmith successfully exhibited the core values and principals, SBBC is built upon. Upon request, every one of the 92 business owners and co-founders involved in the videography would zealously render a glowing review of the entire SBBC Awards experience – especially through the entire videography process.
- 5-minute introduction video - Consistent correspondence with finalists to ensure questions were answered and the entire videography process was seamless.
- Videography of 45 HD Interviews that showcased each finalist’s passion, drive, and selflessness during their entrepreneurial journey -Custom designed special effects for intro graphics and outro graphics -2 custom designed and recorded music sounds tracks for each interview clip.

TheMarketingsmith spoke with us today about how to begin developing a social media campaign. We had a few questions that had been hanging around without a good answer: - should we start reaching out and building a following before we had settled on a name? - how should we make the most of an upcoming industry-research trip to San Francisco for building our community back home through blogging? She gave us a clear answers that were specific to our situation, as well as general guidelines that we didn't know enough to ask about. Thanks Orianna!

I am a registered Psychologist who operates a private practice. I wanted to boost traffic and conversion of visitors into clients from my website and social media. I approached TheMarketingsmith with my requirements and they have started with a Performance & Tracking Online campaign to generate large amounts of data that LATs (my private practice) can use and apply toward managing future campaigns. TheMarketingsmith helped me make sense of the numbers and decide which course of action is best to take. I look forward to working with the exceptional team at TheMarketingsmith!!

Orianna Lacey from TheMarketingsmith is truly overdue for having a cyclone named after her, such is the energy and dedication she brings to her work. The only thing that could possibly prevent my recommending her to you is the sheer desire to keep her for my business.
