Community Building

For many business, being able to bring people together is crucial for success.  Being well-connected with members of your industry is not only helpful for establishing good contacts, but can be critical to finding the right customers.  

Chambers of commerce, networking groups like BNI or LeTip, and unions can help foster external social networks.

Online, social networking might include facebook fan pages, a twitter account to keep customers up-to-date, and blogs.

Loci House understands the importance of maintaining those good relationships which is why we foster community building both on and off the internet.  In addition to traditional routes to social networking, we can help strengthen your presence within a community.

Online

Leveraging the power of online communities allows you to take your website beyond traditional information-only spots to places that provide true online networking.  Imagine having your own version of facebook completely themed to match your site and advertising your business on every page where members are trading information with each other.  The more the membership grows, the more prominent your business becomes without any additional work!  Benefits include:

  • Your company's own online community
  • Content-building by members (which search engines love)
  • Shared Photo albums
  • Shared videos
  • Member blogs, polls, forums and more
  • More traffic automatically coming to your site
