Kind Words

“I am very proud of the relationships that have been formed with local business leaders over the years. Being their go-to person for outsourced marketing tasks for extended periods of time means something. That is one way we measure effectiveness and value.”

– Patti Goethals Rowlson, founder and communications director of Bellingham PR & Communications

Tonja Myers, CHCC administrator

I don’t think of Bellingham PR & Communications as a consulting group, they are truly part of our team!

I trust them to keep confidence when needed, to blow the horn loudly when needed and to be able to discern the appropriate timing for each.

When CHCC made the very difficult decision to close a much-loved program – Northwest Adult Day Health – Bellingham PR & Communications was right there with our leadership team helping us to find the appropriate words and timing to communicate with stakeholders and the community.

Our industry has remarkable challenges in terms of recruiting staff. Recruitment is hard work, especially when it is so very important to find the right people, not just anyone to fill a role. BPRC works closely with our HR department. They advertise job openings in a way that reaches applicants who have a heart for service and understand the importance of the work we do. They target the outreach to be effective as well as efficient.

Lastly, BPRC helps us put our best foot forward with corporate branding. As we update public-facing information, BPRC is our go-to team to “make it pretty.” They make sure our presentations are clear, professional and appealing.

Rich Bosman, Bostec Inc.

I am a busy small business owner who also values having space in my life for family, church, volunteering with nonprofit groups, and serving as a commissioner with a local fire district.

I rely on Bellingham PR & Communications to manage an important part of my business that I would otherwise have to spend a lot of time researching and managing: online marketing.

Their team takes care of online marketing for Bostec; they help me with a variety of writing projects and social media management. They also handle updates on our website.

Outsourcing marketing tasks to local pros allows me to spend time on personal endeavors that matter. Working with Bellingham PR & Communications also allows me to focus on serving customers and managing the day-to-day operation of my business, which are areas I am most comfortable in.

Putting together a 60-page bi-monthly magazine (Business Pulse magazine) with multiple authors and writing styles is not an easy task, but working with Patti and Matthew has made the process a smooth production addition. Overall, I have had a great experience with them and their feedback has been professional, prompt and insightful. I trust them as part of my team that is committed to making sure each issue is as good as it can be.

We worked with Patti on a very important announcement for our long-time family business recently. She was excellent in all ways; thinking strategically through all aspects of the process. The results were great and we look forward to looking with Patti again in the future.

Charlie Hudson, Hudson Remodeling

Working with Bellingham PR & Communications has been incredibly important to me, especially in the midst of difficult economic times that impacted my industry. Patti’s consistent coaching and encouragement during that time made me want to keep moving forward with marketing; she helped with lead generation and customer relations programs that made a difference.

Bellingham PR & Communications works to keep Hudson Remodeling’s name in front of our target audience by coordinating social media efforts and developing content for our website and blog.

Their team’s copywriting skills have directly resulted in better search engine rankings in several key markets; our website investment would not be producing results without her efforts.

I would recommend talking with Bellingham PR & Communications if you need marketing or social media help for your business; the team is is personable, easy to get along with, and their services are valuable.
