Reesy Floyd-Thompson

Reesy Floyd-Thompson

My business Create Good Marketing is a firm changing the world in its own way by working exclusively with nonprofits and small businesses with limited marketing budgets. I provide social media and web management, social media ad strategy, storytelling, and most importantly emotion. Yep, you read that right. I give people an emotional reason to care about your product or cause.
My motto: Amplify Humanity. What does that mean?
It’s simple. Start with what connects us first. Human to human communication is the quickest entry point to emotion. Logic reasons. Emotion eases … the buying tension when making a decision. Ideally, you want to meet your audience on the corner of logic and emotion and help them cross over.
With over 13 years nonprofit marketing and public relations experience, I am no stranger to writing copy to sell, promote and create special messages. In those years, I’ve designed and redesigned many websites from concept to execution, grown social media following and engagement with organic and paid traffic, spearheaded a major rebranding campaign and much more. In most cases, I was a team of one. My past experiences have led to the development of what you are reading today.
I’ve never met a deadline I didn’t like. I’ve learned if you communicate effectively, clients understand your abilities and/or limitations. I am proud of my ability to work well with different personalities. Everyone in business has a common goal– to get their job done and to look competent while doing it. In essence, we are all the same. (That’s our humanity, get it?)
When you hire me, you get someone who understands the importance of being unique in business and in person. Originality with a dose of conformity is the difference between curious clans and cash customers.
Want to tap into emotion? I’m your girl.

Christa Nichols

Christa Nichols

Hi, my name is Christa, and I'm a graphic and web designer from Iowa - and yes, I do live in the middle of a corn field with my husband and two kids. I specialize in brand development, print and digital media, and promotional consulting. All too often I hear comments like this from clients when we first start working together:
"Well, I have a website, but it just isn't what I wanted."
"I was hoping this catalog would show people that we're an environmentally friendly company, but the previous designer didn't really get that."
"I tried explaining to the newspaper what I wanted put in my ad, but they just didn't hit the nail on the head."
My number one priority when working with a client is to first listen, and I think that really sets Practical Promotions apart. I strive to accurately, attractively, and clearly portray my clients' goals and visions for their businesses and organizations in the products I design for them.
