Partner Agency Spotlight: TRIO

  • Written by CreateAthon

Trio Solutions Inc.
(TRIO) is the perfect example of how powerful being a CreateAthon partner agency can be—as they just hosted their 11th annual CreateAthon event in October.

Each year, TRIO has a theme for CreateAthon. This year they had a “slumber party.”

Founded in 2001, TRIO is a full-service boutique agency in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina that specializes in helping brands achieve their marketing, branding, digital, media, public relations and event goals. Over the past 11 years, this talented group has had more fun working overtime than you can imagine. They are strong believers that repeating their event annually maximizes their impact in the community.

The TRIO team took some time recently to share insights on their 2017 CreateAthon clients and what stood out to them about their experience.

East Cooper Land Trust
“Many of us are Mount Pleasant residents and enthusiastically worked on a direct mail piece for this East Cooper nonprofit. We provided social media recommendations to ensure their team makes the most out of the power of social media because spreading the word is so critical to their success. With the ridiculous growth in our town, we were honored to support their mission. If they come up in your news feed, support ’em!”

Carolina Youth Development Center
“They provide such an important service to dozens of our community’s most vulnerable children. The housing for these kids is in constant need of repair. So, we helped to recraft their donor packet to help their team gain more support from our community. If you, or someone you know, are interested in ensuring these kids have a roof over their heads, this is the nonprofit for you.”

Saint Frances Animal Center
“Who doesn’t want to help puppies and kittens? We do and we did! First, we recreated their logo so they would have the necessary file formats for all their marketing needs. Then, we developed stationery and redesigned their brochure. We miss our fur babies from our first visit so we have our fingers crossed that we’ll be able to go back up and deliver their goods (generously donated by our BFFs at Nelson Printing).”

Meals on Wheels of Charleston
“They provide such a vital role in our community. Without them, so many of our seniors would be without a warm meal and someone to check on them. We were honored to create a brochure for them. If you have a heart for the elderly and have a good driving record, give them a call. They need drivers! What a great way to give back to the community – driving around our beautiful Lowcountry helping someone’s grandmother or grandfather.”

Lowcountry Food Bank
“While we originally set out to develop a marketing plan, that task became quite a challenge because this group really does have their you-know-what together. Seriously, you have to be doing something right if you have distributed 28 million pounds of food to the community – yes that’s 28 MILLION! That being said, we wanted to help them tell their story, so we created a 1-minute overview video.”

In addition to the projects listed above, each nonprofit also received a 2017 CreateAthon To-Go kit packed full of all types of marketing tips, plus TLC on their websites (if needed), Google Analytics reviews and social media recommendations.
