We are a small business in Portland OR, started by husband and wife, Scott and Danielle Baker.
For over 10 years collectively, we have worked as freelancers helping small businesses grow. We have specialized in Social Media Marketing, graphic design, web design, illustration, photography and writing.
During our time as freelancers, we got to know our clients personally and developed a deep connection and passion for their businesses. Their success was our success, and finding new ways to grow their brand became not just our job, but our passion.
Out of all of our strategies, we found that Social Media had the biggest effect on the growth and success of our clients. We found new customers for our clients and built better relationships with existing ones.
We also found that events were a fantastic way for our clients to grow their businesses. They help build word-of-mouth and get customers involved with their brand outside of their store, studio or online marketplace.
As more of our clients began focusing on events, we found that Social Media was an incredibly effective way to build attendance. In fact, we used it to double the RSVPs in 5 days for one of the first events we promoted.
There is Really Something to This
One night we looked at each other, and said, "Why is no one offering Social Media for events?" It was such a perfect combination, and it was getting real results for our clients.
Plenty of companies offer Social Media Management (including us), but very few offer services specifically for events.
Not every company has the capability for long-term social media management, but many need short-term help when it comes time to promote their event.
What if there was a company that could help these small businesses quickly build attendance for their event through social media? What if they did more than that- what if they coordinated giveaways and contests, managed RSVP lists and even posted live content during the event?
Let's Make a Company
After doing more research into our idea and speaking with existing clients, we decided it was time to pursue this. We have always dreamed of owning a business and this is the perfect opportunity.
In May 2014, we formed The Live Bakery, LLC, one of the only Social Media Event Management companies in Portland. A shameful pun on our last name, yes, but also a name that we believe shows that we are different.
Since starting The Live Bakery, we have focused on offering the best, most personal service to our clients in Portland and across the United States.
