Thumbler combines the marketing and public relations expertise of Pamela Biery with the graphic design skills of Ken Teichmann.
Thumbler is available for digital communication, graphic design and public relations work locally, regionally and nationally. We enjoy working with teams through online platforms as well as direct meetings, phone calls and ongoing email communication. We stay in touch!
We are seeing an emerging need for community project management facilitation and welcome work with governmental agencies seeking input and transparency in their process.
Thumbler is a Certified Small Business #2002560 and Certified DBE #43610. Thumbler is a woman-owned business and a registered CMAS provider. Thumbler is a member of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA).
We understand how all the moving pieces dovetail to build more success. By integrating public relations, website development and social media with brand, brand story and outreach events, results are maximized while expense and time are reduced.
Whether it is doing key research for technical writing, making complex ideas easy to understand or getting ‘vanilla’ news items out, Thumbler does it. Areas of expertise include feature article development and place-ment, website writing, blog posts, social media content and video scripts.
With an eye to long term goals, Thumbler can prepare a press calendar and then systematically write and place appropriate news releases as well as develop specific outreach campaigns. Press keeps pace with company or product developments, creating news and earned media exposure, while building content across multiple platforms (blog, social, website).
Logo development and signage
Thumbler creates logos and sophisticated graphics, including appropriate graphic formats for digital and brick and mortar applications (social media icons, signs, printed material, garments and websites).
Thumbler creates and implements complex marketing strategies. Gain the understanding you need to get where you want to go. Thumbler plans the sequential steps to lead your organization or project to the desired outcomes.
Website strategy and planning
Websites are designed to produce different results and serve different needs. Pamela Biery has been designing websites and managing their implementation since 1992. Goals and strategy determine website functions, content and special features.
Social media strategy and ad campaigns
Building a consistent brand story and voice across many social media platforms is different than hiring an intern to post news. Thumbler takes social media strategy seriously. We establish and populate successful social media accounts that produce results.
Whether it’s a website, product launch or ad campaign, we set goals with sequenced steps to make it happen. Part of this is methodical follow-up and looking at lessons learned for each project. We facilitate group processes for community development projects.
Thumbler offers several billing options and works to find that magic point where there is quality service, great value and strong results. We do this by learning your budget and desired outcomes, then making recommendations for the best way we can work with you to achieve your goals.
We quite frequently work in 10-hour pre-paid blocks of time. We offer a discount with this approach and can quickly get to work with the minimum amount of fuss. This system allows us to practice lean management and we find that our clients also like having a clearly defined budget.
Our rates range from $75 to $160 per hour, depending on the scope of work and nature of tasks.
We care about our community and contribute our skills to a few special non-profit projects each year—almost always, these are projects that would not happen without our support.
