About Us

Windmill is neither solely marketing, nor advertising, nor public relations, nor investor relations. We have friends that do that. Windmill is a creative, dynamic and integrated social media and communication design + management house focused on driving online perception for small public and private companies. 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 companies across a spectrum of industries.

While every company 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.

“The whole is more than the sum of its parts.” - Aristotle, Metaphysica.

Each team member contributes to creating and improving a company’s core communication tools and collaborates to ensure clients are communicating to the world effectively and methodically across a multitude of online platforms.

We are  a Type – A creative house. Our services are selfishly driven.

Services

Perception is reality.

 In today’s world, perception is driven by experience and a lot of what you experience from companies is initially done online.
This makes a company’s communication and presentation via social media, website, news/press, marketing materials and more – all vitally important to the success of their business. We like to see companies with an online presence that is robust, attractive, informative and engaging – from social media to website to news and video – which lends us a deep desire and passion to create and/or improve these facets of a company. Our services, therefore, are selfishly driven and include the following:

 

Social Media

For companies 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 your company, products, 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 a world of instant knowledge and gratification thanks to the advent of the internet and the smartphone. A company’s website and digital media (or lack thereof) is the first thing found on an internet search and therefore, it becomes an extremely important facet of that business. Our websites are beautifully written and crafted with the industry and market in mind, as well as tablet, smartphone and desktop-optimized.

Press Release

The creation and dissemination of effective news is vitally important to a company’s communication efforts. News breathes life into companies, grabbing the attention of potential customers, partners, investors and fans. We understand this. Our team has created, edited and optimized hundreds of news stories for numerous public and private companies across a variety of industries each telling their own story, and can do the same for your company at an affordable cost.

Copywriting

Consistency is crucial in building perception. Having a strong brand supported by a clear message told throughout a company’s communication tools can go a long way in building and improving it, as well as increasing brand awareness. We have worked with a variety of companies to clarify and hone these core messages and carry it throughout all facets of their business. 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.
