About Us

Windmill is neither solely marketing, or advertising, or public relations, or investor relations. Windmill is a creative, dynamic and integrated social media and communication design + management firm focused on driving online perception for small businesses, companies, organizations and people. With a team experienced in corporate communications, social media, investor relations, sales, financial marketing and consulting, psychology and design, Windmill is highly effective at servicing the modern communication needs of many across a spectrum of industries.

While every business, company, organization and person is as unique as a fingerprint, they all require the same communication tools to get their intended message across to the public – and even more, to get their intended message across to customers, partners, investors and fans. Windmill provides simple and affordable a la carte services designed to engineer or renew these tools, and sustain them over the long-term. Services include social media, website design, copywriting, press releases, public and investor contact, and more.

Services

Perception is reality.

 In today’s world, perception is driven by experience and a lot of what you experience of businesses, organizations and professionals is first done online. This makes the online communication and presentation of these entities via social media, website, news releases, blogs, marketing materials and more – all vitally important to their success. We like to see businesses, organizations and professionals with an online presence that is robust, attractive, informative and engaging, no matter the size or state of their business or career.  Windmill’s organic desire and strong passion for ‘driving perception’ allows our clients to focus on growing their core business, and can rest easy knowing their online presence and communication is being carefully articulated to their target audiences. Services include the following:

Social Media

For small businesses, companies, organizations and professionals today, social media is the norm, not the exception. It not only provides your customers, followers and investors with another avenue to get to know you and your company’s products, services, industry and opportunity, but it also allows you to get to know your target audiences. Ignorance is no longer bliss. Knowledge is and our social media services help drive it.

Website Design

We live in the age of the internet and smartphone. We live in a world of instant knowledge and accessibility. Corporate websites and social media pages, as well as professional blogs and profiles, are typically the first top items found on an internet search. They have the power to drive public perception. They have the power to drive business. We recognize that. Each Windmill website is crafted beautifully with the client’s industry, market and target audiences in mind, as well as tablet, smartphone and desktop-optimized.

Press Release

The creation and dissemination of effective news is vitally important to the communication efforts of businesses, companies, organizations and professionals. News breathes life into these entities, grabbing the attention of potential customers, partners, investors and fans. We understand this. Windmill has created, edited and optimized hundreds of news stories for businesses and professionals, alike, across a variety of industries each telling their own story in the most engaging, effective manner possible.

Copywriting

Consistency is crucial in building perception. Whether you are a business, organization or professional, having a strong brand supported by a clear message can go a long way in building and improving your public perception, as well as increasing your brand awareness. We have worked with a variety of businesses, companies,  organizations, and professionals to clarify and hone these core messages and carry them throughout all facets of their online presence. Windmill’s copywriting services include website, business plans, marketing materials, brochures, emails, annual reports and more.

 

To effectively communicate, we must all realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.
