"If you asked me a year ago, I could have never guessed where I would be today. I have been on the local news several times, invited to VIP parties, invited to meet the panther at the zoo face-to-face, asked to be a celebrity guest twice, comped into local events and more. Not to mention the monetary rewards. The Grapevine has taken my small marketing firm to the next level. It has literally changed my life."

- Tony Miller, TallahasseeGrapevine.com - Launched June of 2010

How is a Grapevine different from Facebook, WordPress or the Local Newspaper's Website?

On Facebook you have to be a friend to share information and hope they share it with their friends.  On a Grapevine, the entire community can see the Articles, Discussion Boards and Event Calendar. 

You can write an article on Wordpress or any other number of blog sites - you and over a million other people a day! Your article will be mixed in with millions of articles from Bejing to Baltimore. The only ones that will read it are You and Traffic You Drive to Your Blog Article.  Grapevine will have a built in audience as it grows - readers that care because it is Local!

The Last Time I Checked, the Local Paper Never Asked You to Write for Them. When you submit a Press Release, it ends up in a pile of papers on someone's desk. Even if you did get an article written on your cause, it could be edited, inconsistent or disappointing. 

 

On Grapevine, you can:

  • Have your own weekly column with a built-in audience! 
  • Create your own tv show and stream it for your community to watch!
  • Share Your Fiction or Poetry!
  • Promote Your Upcoming Event on the Calendar!

When something is Local, People Care More. If You Give Them the Freedom to Make it Their Own - They Will Keep Coming Back.

 

I am not a computer programmer, web designer, a writer, or a graphic artist - What kind of support do you offer?

Grapevine Marketin is committed to help you succeed. This Support is the Reason for Your Monthly Maintenance & Support Fee. We take care of the technical issues of the site like maintenance, servers, hosting, Search Engine Optimization and other tasks you won't even realize we do to keep your site up and running.

You also get full support from the corporate office for everything from simple changes of the functions on the site to sales & marketing training.  You are in business for yourself, not by yourself. It is like having several employees without having to deal with the overhead of staff.

Not a Writer? We also offer a Content Marketing Package you can sell to your business clients. We charge a wholesale flat monthly fee per client for this service and you can resell it for what the market will bear in your city.

 

Who Should Consider Buying a Grapevine Community?

An entrepreneur that understands direct sales, will be "hands-on" and active in their business. This is a perfect addition for an existing marketing firm or local publisher to add to their available products. The Grapevine is ideal for the sales or marketing professional. Or a business minded individual that is willing to learn.
