Hello everyone! This is very crazy for Abby and I to be writing to you today. We have been longing for a moment like this for a good while now. It has now come to life. How crazy is that!
We have been dreaming and thinking of starting our own business since we were seniors in high school and worked with a local business in our area. Now, five years later, we are starting Wholesome Media and are so excited to introduce it to you. Wholesome Media is a new media marketing business focused on improving client’s media presence on social media. Our vision for the company was clear before we actually developed a name; Abby was taking an online graphics course to further develop her design skills.
“The exercise was to develop a logo for a coffee shop based on the owner’s name – our teacher suggested researching the owner’s name to develop a vision and logo for the coffee shop but I got side tracked. I ended up looking up the meaning of Jeremy and the meaning of Abby and we both had ‘wholesome’ in common. It felt like a sign that our company name should include ‘wholesome’ in some way and then the designer part of me realized that the next word should start with ‘M’ because that would make logo design so much easier (aesthetically pleasing, symmetry, etc.)” she said.
We landed on Wholesome Media which we both felt we could relate to (because of the meaning of our names) as well as a good picture of what our business will be about. Wholesome means ‘promoting moral well-being’ which is what we hope to do for each and every business we come in contact with.
We believe social media and digital marketing brings the community together and the right message could lead to positive change. This philosophy was developed when Abby and I were discussing how we wanted to help the community and world during the time of the COVID19 virus. We want to be able to help individuals’ market themselves digitally through trendy, effective social media tactics.
