RSM Agency – Better Know A Sponsor

RSMThe RSM Agency and J. Richard Byrd are back for Ignite Charlotte 6.

The RSM Agency was founded in 1998 as a business development and branding consultancy group that services the faith based and professional services industries. The business is geared around Preacherpreneurs, Lawyers, and Realtors. “We help them Think Bigger, Be Bigger, and Do Bigger Things.” The original company was called RealSource Marketing, which stood for REAL estate reSOURCE and was created while he was working in the real estate industry.

When we asked Richard why he sponsors Ignite Charlotte, he told us that he moved to Charlotte 5 years ago and sought out events that tied into his company’s vision. “Sponsoring Ignite Charlotte these last few years has garnered incredible name recognition in the CLT tech and social media community for RSM Agency and the value Ignite has on the social fabric of Charlotte is immeasurable. The ability to meet and hear from great local thinkers is absolutely phenomenal. I look forward to Ignite for the creative spark. Our company motto is THINK BIG! — and that is what is offered at Ignite. A place to be inspired and to think big.”

We agree Richard and we thank you for not only being a sponsor, but volunteering your time to make Ignite Charlotte a great event.

Exakt Marketing – Better Know A Sponsor

EM_LogoOur website face-lift was made possible by our newest sponsor Exakt Marketing.

A couple months ago, Summer Taylor, partner and CMO of Exakt Marketing, connected with us via Twitter. Her company, formed from the merging of two companies in 2012, is a full-service marketing agency that focuses on three primary practice areas: restaurants & hospitality, health, wellness & fitness and meeting & conference planning. Exakt also provides services across many different market sectors including higher education, professional associations and professional services.

“At Exakt, we believe every interaction is an opportunity for a unique experience. While our clients’ industries may vary, our main focus is the restaurant and hospitality industry, which Charlotte seems to have an affinity for. We want to help existing and new restaurants alike develop their own system to create unique experiences, maintain their brand and succeed – whether it be from business owner to staff, or staff to the customer directly.”

After Tweeting a little more and then talking in person, we learned that Exakt Marketing is expanding into the Charlotte area. Summer grew up in Charlotte and thought it would be an exciting opportunity to give the Charlotte community a chance to get to know the Exakt name through a sponsorship of this kind while also bolstering the company’s passion for creative and forward thinking.

Summer likes the Ignite Charlotte format and feels that the event unites thought leaders and entrepreneurs with the community, enlightening them on various topics that they may or may not have heard of before. It’s an excellent way to showcase many of the talented and inspiring people that make Charlotte such an exciting place to live.

We agree wholeheartedly and extend a warm welcome to Summer and Exakt Marketing.
