A message from our founder.
Uncharted territory, yup, we're in it. Just like many other business owners, this is shaky ground to be standing on. What was supposed to be an epic second season for our beer truck and mobile bartending service, has drastically changed tones and redefined epic to us here at Tapped Events. As an entrepreneur who partners with an endless list of other small businesses, I hear them all going through the same thing. This is so new, so raw, and so challenging to navigate.
All of this got me to thinking: how can we help? We most certainly have some skills and knowledge that we can put to work to help other business owners and leaders navigate this time. We've learned SO much not only from our previous career track but from being fully invested in this industry. I know in my heart that we have skills and knowledge that can be leveraged to support YOU in ways that are responsible and realistic.
After much deliberation, I have decided to kick open the doors, share what we have and jumpstart a new division of the Tapped brand: Tapped Business Solutions.
I believe in my core that when the dust settles, people are going to be ready to congregate, to celebrate with humans and raise their glasses. So I want to help breweries, cideries and other service-based businesses keep their doors open. More than ever before, how a business continues to show up right now: brand identity, engagement and presence...will define how you will be able to show up once you can open your doors again.
So we would like to offer you one-stop solutions. So that as business owners, you can focus on keeping the lights on today, on keeping the operations you have rolling efficiently, on brewing and getting those deliveries and curbside pick-ups out the door. So that you can keep being as busy as possible TODAY.
We are available NOW to help you get in front of the THOUSANDS of folks who are bored and scrolling. Looking for things to order or do NOW, and places they are going to congregate once this all eases: yes, this storm will run out of rain.
GROW YOUR BRAND now. Come through this even stronger. Be strategic today.
So what can we help you with?
Customer and Employee Engagement: what are you doing to stay in front of your customers AND your employees (current or on temporary lay-offs)? Let us help you design communication and touchpoints to keep your brand top of mind.
Digital Content & Product Photography: looking at your social media and website, and realizing it's not helping your situation? If you're looking for refreshed images or design support, we can help.
Business Innovation & Consulting: there are breweries brewing MORE beer now than ever before. Why? They're being innovative in their offering. Need some fresh perspective? We can help.
Social Media Management: post and pray is not enough anymore. What are you doing to engage your audience? To invite new strangers into your fan club?
Public Relations: have an innovation or announcement that could get you some media attention? We have the communication expertise to help you navigate that.
Recruitment: it may seem miles away now, but when the time comes, it's going to be a project of itself to staff-up.
