An introduction to Tiny Bites Consulting
5 Comments Tiny Bites ConsultingMarch 3, 2009
Welcome to Tiny Bites Consulting, a Vancouver-based firm that helps local food and hospitality businesses build a presence on the web. Let us take a minute to tell you who we are, what we do, and how this firm had its beginnings.
Who we are
Tiny Bites Consulting is headed up by Karen Hamilton, a project manager who specializes in website, email, and software integration projects. You may also know her as the author of Tiny Bites, the namesake food blog that precipitated the formation of Tiny Bites Consulting.
To meet the unique goals that your web project has, Karen chooses a project team from her network of designers and tech specialists. Sometimes your project is a one-woman job; sometimes Karen becomes your key contact for the team that builds your site. Either way, you can be assured that the people building your website are hand-picked based on your needs.
What we do
We want to rid the city of food websites built entirely in Flash. We’d also like to tackle non-Flash food websites that aren’t getting customers in the door. If we can take on Vancouver, then we’ll try to convince the rest of the world to follow suit.
We’re also here to educate and advise. Some businesses don’t feel that they can afford an online storefront or a big marketing machine. We want to convince you of the far more promising reality of the web – that communications and brand can always be improved, and that there are always possibilities within your price range.
As you can see from Karen’s food blog, you can also take advantage of Karen’s ability to write on the web and take vibrant photography of you, your food, and your events.
Beginnings: the story of Tiny Bites Consulting
We’ll keep it brief – you can always catch Karen in person for all the details.
One year ago, a food blog calling itself Tiny Bites appeared on the net. It followed the adventures of Karen Hamilton as she sampled the culinary delights of Vancouver and beyond. Her approach was a little different from the food blogs of that day – her articles were full of photography and whenever possible, she assessed her experiences with an eye on environmental impact and sustainability.
The site caught the attention of local media, and behind the scenes, inquiries about freelance web work, writing, and photography came trickling in. The trickle soon turned into a tide that caused Karen to come to an epiphany: she could combine her passion and observations about food with her expertise with media projects to help the local small business community. The decision to start her own consulting practice came easily after that.
And that’s why you are now here reading about Tiny Bites Consulting.
