Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Westport Interactive Media!
Four questions with Rich Lechthaler, President of Westport Interactive Media.
Why did you start your business?
Westport Interactive Media, LLC (WIM) was created after CEO Rich Lechthaler worked in the advertising and marketing industry for over a decade and realized that local businesses needed local, boutique support to help them reach their targeted audiences and consumers. After coming up with a plan, he put his ideas in motion and set out to create WIM to help local business owners grow their businesses through better marketing strategies!
What is your best-selling product/service?
Our best-selling service is a close tie between Social Media Management and our in-house robust Search Engine Marketing campaigns. Small businesses rely on these services to help them reach their existing customers and to reach potential customers to help them increase their profits and ROI. WIM provides clients with marketing reports monthly so clients can see just how they're performing and where their marketing is flourishing!
How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?
This question is flipped for us, local businesses use WIM to support their business! We work with many local businesses to help them grow throughout their communities, both right here in Westport and across not only Connecticut but the country! We have clients from Connecticut to California! We LOVE helping local businesses and being a part of their journey!
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
We are constantly evolving with current marketing trends and are always reimagining our vision and ways to help local businesses thrive!
Rich would like to nominate Stanton Miles at 1803 Boston Post Rd E. in Westport to be featured next!
