Standing Behind Small Businesses: Trellist Helps Define Their Digital Presence


Trellist is engaged with multiple local small businesses in the Wilmington-Philadelphia area. Most recently, these clients have sought assistance with updating their digital presence to continue engaging with their audiences—from UX-centric website redesigns, to multi-channel digital advertising, and email templates.

The label of “small business” may be all that these businesses have in common, as they represent a variety of industries, including biopharmaceuticals, financial services, parking management, professional services, and the arts.

Trellist will plan, execute, and establish a powerful digital presence for these companies by creating responsive websites, landing pages, email and social media campaigns, as well as implementing new processes and tools, backed by measurable analytics, to ensure these efforts are generating a tangible ROI for their business.

Trellist is committed to supporting small businesses and non-profit organizations, during this time and always. We’ve compiled a list of digital resources available to businesses that can strengthen their ability to communicate with potential customers and advertise their offerings.
