STORY

The Florida C.A.N.! mission is to create and strengthen a statewide network that catalyzes and supports communities to improve college and career preparation, access, and completion for all students. The Florida College Access Network empowers communities to work constructively alongside our schools and builds partnerships with universities, colleges, schools, community organizations, businesses, parents and students. Research shows today, Florida ranks slightly below the nation in the percentage of adults ages 25-64 who have a high-quality post-secondary degree or credential. Assuming that current trend continues, Florida is expected to fall substantially behind the nation on this measure in 2025. This will also leave the state short of the college-educated population needed to meet workforce demands and compete with best-performing nations.

BIG GOAL 2025: To increase the percentage of Floridians age 25 to 64 with a high-quality post-secondary degree or credential to 60% by 2025.

The Florida College Access Network approached NV Advertising requesting assistance with strategic tactical execution ideas to increase awareness of the problem that would ultimately positively influence the achievement of Florida Goal 2025.

One of the ideas NV Advertising presented was to develop a pledge form that key influential individuals and organizations could sign to express their commitment to helping the state of Florida achieve this goal. Upon signing up, individuals would both be automatically entered to receive regular emails from the organization which would in turn provide ideas, tools, information and resources for local ways that individual could make a difference in their local community and immediate surroundings to positively encourage degree attainment within the state of Florida. Persons would also be encouraged to follow the organization on major social media networks as a supplementary way to collectively be engaged with the movement.

Nicole provided me with everything I needed for an article I wrote for The Tampa Tribune, including beautiful, well-sized photos, names, signed press releases and interesting back story. Her attention to detail made it effortless to compose this piece about a St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraiser for pediatric cancer research.

All of our national partners were very impressed with your media plan. They expressed that they had not seen anything like this produced for other cities throughout the country. The last similar event we had in 2010 we tried to plan our own media and got luke warm results at best. With your help and expertise we not only were able to stretch our marketing dollars but had the highest attended event in the country. Nicole, thanks again for all your help.

I remember the time you sat at the PC in our office and hammered-out copy for our Radio advertising. Usually I wrote our copy myself, so I wasn't sure an outsider could do it as effectively. When you were done, it read like you had been working at our business for decades.....you completely understood our product, our needs and what our message should be and chose the exact words to convey it perfectly. But the one word I remember most was WOW, because you amazed me!
— Ken Weinstein, Tampa, FL

NV Advertising is an all around professional, class act. Nicole is a priceless one stop advertising and marketing expert. Our company, American Ketamine Institute, couldn't be happier with the service and results we have seen. We see NV Advertising as a key component to our current and future success and we highly recommend her and NV Advertising!
Jeremy Williams, CRNA (Anesthesia)

Nicole is the type of person every business owner wishes they had, either employed at their company or partnered with them to help their business grow. She's thoroughly organized and detailed, always meets deadlines, and is able to handle any unforeseen issues that may arise with grace and clarity. Perhaps her best character asset is her empathy for others as she understands what it's like to work in both large and small companies and transition as well to owning her own. I often refer many of my previous clients to her expertise as I know that they are in the best hands I could possibly place them in.
— Brenda Terry

Working with NV Advertising was a wonderful experience. They brought a personal touch to our grassroots campaign to help promote Tango Fire. Throughout the project, Nicole was extremely informative and personally engaged with each aspect of the plan. I would highly recommend working with NV Advertising if you're looking for a company that cares as much about your marketing needs as you do.
Heather Chamberlain, Tampa, FL

We fully expect to have more work for you as we progress and dig into this moving forward, as you know internet marketing tools change daily. If I can be a reference for you with any other potential clients please don’t hesitate to have them contact me.
