Upgrade your marketing from a headache to a hero.

Community impact starts with local businesses and nonprofits.

As a native to northeast Indiana, Sarah Arnold noticed that the lifeblood of the region was largely underserved in one important area: Marketing.

Many small- to medium-sized businesses and nonprofits can’t afford to work with large agencies and don’t know what kind of marketing will allow them to have the greatest impact possible.

Because of this, Sarah founded SociallySeasoned, a digital marketing agency that allows businesses in the area to upgrade their marketing game from a headache to a hero.

SociallySeasoned caters mainly to business owners who are overwhelmed by marketing. Sarah and her team of local talent will work within any budget to help these business owners build a well-rounded marketing strategy.The company executes everything from social media management to graphic and web design. Their main goal is to help local nonprofits and businesses increase their overall marketing presence and community impact.

SociallySeasoned is growing quickly, and as their team and clientele continues to expand, Sarah hopes to provide a workplace that is family-friendly, hire great talent, continue to work with local business, and begin working with larger clients.

The grant from the Fortitude Fund will go toward project management, CRM, website updates, and new hire materials as the company looks to grow its full-time talent.
