In this edition of Monday Morning Radio, host Dean Rotbart interviews Mark Grisafe of M. Grisafe Architect about the challenges facing small business owners who operate on a local level. In the interview, Mark talks about how his business has evolved since he opened the doors ten years ago and how remaining agile allowed his business to survive the economic downturn that put many of his competitors out of business.
Mark also discusses how he has branded his business as one that puts a high priority on collaboration with clients and community involvement, setting it apart from other architecture firms in the Long Beach area. He talks about using online marketing, specifically blogging, to make potential clients aware of the company’s brand and their mantra: Advise, Advocate and Collaborate.
