Rising Tide Business Services is a grassroots social enterprise specializing in digital marketing for small island businesses, entrepreneurs, and non-profit organizations. Launched in July 2021, the inspiration for this initiative is founded in the concept that a ‘rising tide lifts all boats’.
The Board of the Rural Island Economic Partnership, is excited to be offering these affordable and reliable supports provided, through a rural islands lens, and across all of BC’s rural island economic sectors. Rising Tide Business Services will help to empower rural island businesses to achieve enduring local economic well-being through the pandemic and beyond.
By And For Islanders
The Rising Tide Team of marketing experts are islanders. The Team understands the unique nature of rural island businesses; recognizing that islander needs are specialized and require a nuanced approach to expand their reach. The RTB Team offers specialized expertise to match folks with the right digital marketing opportunities – whether that be seeking occasional advice with DIY marketing, or sourcing done-for-you service packages that are cost effective. Either way, the Team works together to discern what approaches make the most sense for every budget, every goal, and every interest!
