Webtivity Selected for Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber Social Media Campaign

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Webtivity has been selected to develop a comprehensive social media strategy for the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce.  The initial phase of the relationship will include optimizing tampa-bay-beaches-logoexisting social media properties and evaluating current strategies.  Future phases will include refining messaging, cultivating a more active audience in the areas of tourism and local business, and eventually exploring monetization strategies.  Webtivity has consulted with other Chambers of Commerce in the Tampa Bay Area to deploy similar strategies.

The Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce serves beach communities from Sand Key in northern Pinellas County to Pass-A-Grille in the south.  The Chamber serves tourism related businesses who leverage the Chamber to promote the area and their companies, as well as service businesses who leverage the Chamber as a means of networking with the local business community to identify potential customers and strategic partners.  The Chamber is an independent, non-profit corporation and was created in its current form in 1997, when three previously autonomous chambers joined forces to better promote the Tampa Bay Beaches area as a whole and offer visitor centers for tourists.

The Founding Fathers and Summer Heat

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

This blog is going to be a little out of the ordinary for a tech and marketing company, but because the long July 4th weekend is upon us it is completely fitting.

Our country declared independence from Great Britain 238 years ago this Friday.


It is remarkable that the United States, a country of little significance at the time, was able to win a war against arguably the world’s best army. What is truly extraordinary, however, is that the United States was able to become the great country that it is today. How did we do it? How did the United States become so great? There are thousands of reasons why this country became the wonderful place it is now but the one that stands out the most is the ingenuity of our Founding Fathers to construct the Constitution. The push to create a more effective system of government began 11 years after we declared independence in the summer of 1787. The Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia that started it all took place during an extremely hot and humid summer. 

I would like to take this time to point out the obvious fact that our Founding Fathers did not have air conditioning. As they debated hours on end about the functionality of the Constitution they also sweat through their clothes. To make matters worse, they preferred their proper fashion, that is, they wore stuffy vests and coats. Temperatures were high and so were tempers, but despite the heat they were still able to come together to finish what they had started.

As we prepare to enjoy fireworks and barbecues this Friday we should also be preparing for the heat. Drinking lots of water and wearing sunscreen are just a few of the essentials for those who plan on basking in the hot sun this independence day. For those of you who are planning on skipping out on the hot summer activities, I would like you to take a moment and reflect. If our Founding Fathers had had the luxury of air conditioning the United States may have never come into existence. The heat would not have pushed them towards a thorough and swift construction of one of the best documents ever written.  My recommendation, therefore, is this: enjoy the heat this July 4th weekend, sweat a little, and you may think of something that could change the course of history.
