The Top 5 Social Media Must-Dos for 2017

Kelly Rice, Treefrog Marketing & Communications

I firmly believe that small business is the backbone of America. I was raised on a 900-acre farm near Lafayette, Indiana. I learned that being a business owner was very, very hard, but rewarding work. Dad taught me to always try to do the right thing (no matter the cost), to work hard for everything, give your best (no matter if you succeed or fail) and how to successfully operate a business while raising a family.

Since 2000, I’ve taken those values and created an environment at Treefrog where we continually challenge staff and clients to look for opportunities to make a difference.

We know that might sound a little strange coming from a full-service advertising and marketing agency, but our mission is to simply help people. Treefrog is a Christian-based marketing agency and everything we do is centered around life-building concepts.

Helping small business is an important part of our mission. Since 2000, we've tremendously increased our ability to service clients of all sizes. With continual additions to our professional team and ongoing industry education, our in-house production staff effectively manages client needs and exceeds expectations.

I absolutely love helping people discover their business potential. The ah-ha moment when everything clicks, is when the magic really starts to happen.
