Local Businesses & Organizations

We believe that sharing the story behind your business is fundamental, and provides a meaningful connection between you and your customers.

Story Series (4)

A story series is one of our top-sellers for local businesses. It’s a 4 or8 part story of your company or businesses that is shared on our platform so that our followers have the opportunity to “meet” you and what products or services you may offer. This also includes the option for a giveaway to gain our followers and more potential customer acquisition.

Custom Story Series

If there is anything we have learned in hearing countless stories—it’s that we all have a different story to tell. So, we are here to help you create and customize packages based on your budget and your needs. We understand that local businesses and organizations don’t always have marketing budgets. We try to be as accommodating as possible. Please let us know what you’re looking for in our “custom series comment section” in the checkout process. Pricing varies, so once we have created a customized package together, then an invoice will be sent.

Columbus Stories Consultations

Our consultations are one-on-one meetings designed to help our clients gain the tools needed to be successful at navigating the social-media world. We help you understand the basics of gaining a following and customer base on social media, how to create consistent meaningful content, and overall give insight into exactly how we gained a large organic following in a short period of time. We do offer classes where we teach this information as well, however our consultations are specifically tailored to our client.

Sponsor Columbus Stories

We truly love telling stories of local people around town. But sometimes, it’s hard to do that with 5 kids. A Columbus Stories Sponsorship is an amazing medium that your Company can invest in. And we’re offering sponsorships to businesses with the hope of achieving several goals at once. By providing your in-kind support, it allows us to collect more powerful—more meaningful—and more selective stories for our platform.

There are many ways your business can benefit from becoming a sponsor. Being a Columbus Stories sponsor enhances your image, creates positive publicity, drives sales, and helps shapes customers attitudes all while raising your visibility in the community. Our sponsors provide us the opportunity to go around Columbus to get photos and stories of local people and non-profit organizations. In return, we put sponsorship links/or mentions attached to those local stories. For us, sponsorships have provided amazing partnerships and connections throughout the Columbus community. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor please let us know in the comment section of our submission form! Thanks!
