About Ripple Communications
No-Nonsense Digital Business Advising Services
The Ripple Starts Now!
Hi there thanks for visiting! My name is Pat Ripley and I am the founder of Ripple Communications, which I officially launched in the summer of 2018 after spending more than 8 years working with small business owners across Vermont. As a digital business adviser for Vermont’s Small Business Development Center, I encountered hundreds of businesses along the way and worked with owners one-on-one to assist with their digital needs.
Sometimes this meant building a website, other times social media marketing or data analysis, among many many other online trends and tactics. Sometimes folks just needed someone to talk to after weeks of frustration dealing with the ever-changing nature of online tools and techniques. I enjoyed meeting these entrepreneurs, but saw two common threads among them when it came to dealing with their web presence. What they really wanted was a no-nonsense explanation about what was needed for their businesses’ online presence. And they wanted that information communicated in a language they could understand.
The second common thread among entrepreneurs wrestling with their online business presence was cost. Many simply weren’t sure what they were paying for and what it meant to their bottom line. And then there’s the constant bombardment of e-mails, phone calls and on the street chatter about the next latest trend that you just have to be a part of or your business is no longer “relevant” online. Slogging through this deluge of information and the constantly changing nature of Internet operations, coupled with running the daily operations of your business, can prove exhausting.
To put bluntly, I get it. Too many web marketing firms and web design/development companies are talking over their clients’ heads and we need to do a better job of communicating. That’s why when I decided to start Ripple Communications I was determined to ease these tensions for business owners, artists and entrepreneurs.
