Through community participation and social media engagement, RISE has built an enviable online reputation.

Although they’ve done some advertising in neighborhood magazines and papers, RISE has managed to earn an online reputation that any company would love to have, by and large, through their connections with their community and social media marketing.

Sharing and celebrating the hard work, special events and fun that takes place at RISE every day, RISE helps to connect with people in their community and get the word out about their dance programs through social media.

RISE also places a huge emphasis on community involvement, and they are consistently getting out into their community for events of all sizes, whether the events are school fundraisers, silent auctions, walks or runs.

They also encourage their students and families to refer their friends and neighbors.

When asked what her advice was for other businesses looking to build a strong online reputation, RISE Owner, Karen Cassel said,

“Get your name and reputation out to the public in any way possible. Through trial and error, see what’s a good fit for your business and potential customers.”
