“As a public relations consultant, I am constantly looking for avenues to help my clients get the word out about various products, services, and programs. The most effective barometer my clients and I have used is the response to cost free services and programs. This lets us know who is reading the publication. Recently, Live Oak Theatre offered an acting program for children. Within two days of the article’s appearance in SpringHillNow.com, our target enrollment was achieved. 80% of the parents who called us said that they heard about our program through SpringHillNow.com. This is only one of the many occasions that have convinced me of the usefulness of this medium. I strongly recommend SpringHillNow.com to anyone who is looking to reach the young emerging market in Hernando County. It is the most cost-effective option available.”

“As a local business owner in Hernando County, I recently sponsored Spring Hill Now for the month of April. I had great feedback, received many calls for service, and booked new customers. I would highly recommend advertising with Spring Hill Now if you are looking to grow your business. I am glad I did and will continue to do so.”
-Jenny, Owner of Jenny’s Custom Cleaning, Inc.
“We recently invited Keeley from SpringHillNow to our shop, Babycakes Cup-cakery, to try our product. She took the time to discuss our new business and offer recommendations on how we could spread the word about our cupcake shop. She was very willing to share her knowledge on what works and what doesn’t and offered to help us. Little did we know that she’d take it a step further and post our product on her Facebook business page and share our promotion with her entire fan base. The number of Facebook “likes” and visitors we received in the store from the post was amazing. We received over 85 likes in one day and then those people had there friends like us to. Our business is so dependent on word of mouth and we were just astonished on how that one post could propel so much publicity and brought new customers in our doors. We are looking to partner more with Keeley and become a sponsor for this fabulous tool she’s created for the area. We would highly recommend other businesses to do this as well.”
-Tina & Lacy, Owners of Babycakes Cup-cakery

-Michelle, Owner of Artful Possibilities
“I recently had Spring Hill Now advertise my business and bellydance classes through an article promotion. I was so pleased with not only the response my article generated, but also with Spring Hill Now’s professionalism, creativity, and knowledge! My article was received very well by Spring Hill Now readers and my Facebook page received new interest as well. I encourage businesses in Hernando County to place an ad with Spring Hill Now. What a great way to advertise and promote your business!”

“Keeley, Just a quick note to say we are so very pleased with your management and the success of The Life Center’s new face book page! It is really unbelievable how quickly you were able to develop and maintain a professional looking page. Just imagine, we now have over 1,000 more supporters than we did even a short time ago. Many of our new Facebook fans have volunteered their time, or donated items or attended a TLC event. None of this would have been possible if they had never linked up with TLC! We thought we could successfully manage our own face book page, and we were wrong! With social media so important, professional help is vital. We are so glad this is no long a DIY project! When a non-profit or business can embrace the technology and leverage it for its mission, it lends credibility. I fully believe that a non-profit or business must embrace every opportunity for branding. Grant money and donations are becoming more difficult to secure and an “unknown” agency is at a distinct disadvantage. You are helping us to brand The Life Center of Hernando. We look forward to a continued successful relationship with you. On a much more personal note: We recently asked our FB friends to help our first young single mom. She is pregnant and desperately in need of maternity pants. A FB reader saw our plea and has now planned a shopping expedition with our mom! What a great way to show community support! It could not have happened if you hadn’t helped us make the need known. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.”
-Barbara Lemoine, Director of The Life Center of Hernando County
“SpringHillNow.com has been a huge help reaching a much more widespread demographic than I could obtain on my own. When I attend events, or receive new customers, SpringHillNow.com is often mentioned! SHN is definitely a necessary tool to have in a Spring Hill business owner’s back pocket!”
-Mallory Mae Chiavacci, Owner of Butterwinks!
“The Early Learning Coalition of Pasco and Hernando Counties, Inc. held its 4th Annual “Storybook Forest” event at Crews Lake Wilderness Park in April 2013. Event attendance more than doubled at this event, increasing from 928 registered attendees in 2012 to 1,968 in 2013. Based on a “how did you hear about us?” survey asked of each attendee, Spring Hill Now’s coverage of the event on its website and Facebook page proved to be a significant factor in the increase of attendance. The guide is an excellent resource for families to know what’s happening in and around the Spring Hill area, whether it is free events for families or health and safety notices. If you’re looking for a new, effective news outlet to gain the most response from your audience, Spring Hill Now is the ‘it’ resource!”
-Katie Nelson, Communications Specialist, Early Learning Coalition of Pasco and Hernando Counties, Inc.
“As a Business owner, I am always looking for new ways to reach customers. I try to make the most of my dollars in advertising. I came across SpringHillNow.com’s holiday offer (to run a one time article announcement) and decided to give it a shot! I have had nothing but a POSITIVE response from my listing with SpringHillNow.com and I am looking into working with them again soon. Great Job!!! I recommend them to any local business.”
-Fred Payne, Owner of Just For Kicks Karate
