2018 Year in Review

by Mira Brody in Announcements

It was a busy year for JTech! We’re excited to have gained relationships with new clients, as well as continue partnerships with existing clients. We grew our staff and launched new, community-oriented marketing campaigns — be sure to check out our billboard on Main Street and N Church above the Western Cafe. As we bring in the New Year, we’d like to take a moment to reflect and share with you a few things we are thankful for this year.

Our Community
Part of our efforts focused on getting to know our fellow business owners by participating in events through the Downtown Bozeman Association, Prospera Business Network and Leadership Montana. We had a great time meeting some of you out in the field and hope to continue to participate in our wonderful community in the future.

 The team Bowled for Kids’ Sake in October, a fundraiser benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters, raising $600 to help support kids in and around the Gallatin Valley.

We sponsored a beautiful downtown flower basket and participated in Crazy Days, offering discounts off all new sites. We attended Propsera Business Network’s Sip and Chip and some super fun fundraisers for Thrive. Josh, our president, has been active in Leadership 49, the Park County division of Leadership Montana to hone his skills and network with local business owners.

 Our sponsored downtown flower basket for the Downtown Business Association was displayed over the summer in front of Pita Pit on Main and S Rouse Ave.

New Adventures With Existing Clients
Working with existing clients on a new venture is always a fun undertaking. We had the pleasure of working with Shipton’s Big R, a ranch supply store in Montana and Wyoming, to add ecommence to their site allowing customers to order online and have items ready for pickup, or shipped to their home. Shipton’s Big R then graciously invited us to present to ranch supply store owners and CEOs at the Mid-States conference in Las Vegas. We worked with local videographer, Jusup Sandoval of Experience Blyss, to produce JTech’s first promotional video and had a great time tapping into a new creative side of ourselves.

We also worked with Peak Property Management to overhaul their dated website. The new site better serves their clients and staff members, setting them apart from competition and positioning them as a professional and experienced rental management company in Bozeman.

New Businesses!
Starting a new business is a journey that we always love to be a part of. Nordic Team Solutions is a cross-country ski training and consulting company run by 4X Olympian Andy Newell. We were happy to work with Andy to build a site that would attract new customers and serve existing ones by providing tutorial videos and training exercises to his members. Check out his new site here!

Our Growth
JTech gained two new team members this year — Katie Jenkins, our Relationship Manager, and Nick Jensen, marketing data analyst/CSR. Together, they have formed a strong team of customer service representatives, allowing us to be more proactive as we look for ways to help you succeed online. They’ll help clients with website changes, ongoing maintenance and anything else they may need to run their online business.

In My JTech, we added an onboarding feature, allowing users to add additional teammates to manage their site and edit permissions.

Our Business Partnerships
New business partnerships have allow us to grow our services by creating a mutual referral plan with other local businesses. We are happy with the partners we’ve gained this year: Ben Johnson Photography and Wolfguard IT. Ben Johnson is a talented photographer who specializes in product photography, headshots and on-location photography. He has improved our About Us page, as well as provided custom photography for Great Divide Dental. Wolfguard IT is a dedicated computer consulting company in Bozeman, MT who partner with businesses all over the country to prevent technical issues.

We are happy to build a network with businesses that share our devotion to client service and quality work and are looking forward to the projects we take on with Ben and Wolfguard in the future.

Welcoming 2019
Thank you to all our wonderful clients who allow us to do work we love and are proud of. We look forward to working with you in the coming New Year!
