Strategic eMarketing to Coordinate AEDC Social Media Outreach

For more than 30 years, AEDC has loaned over $47 million to local businesses that have helped entrepreneurs grow with the community.

With more communication with the public via social media and other avenues, AEDC hopes to extend its reach and help even more businesses attain their goals, said Program Director Susan Seaman. By developing and maintaining AEDC Facebook page and a soon-to-launch blog at, Strategic eMarketing will work with AEDC to cultivate its online presence.

This isn’t the first time AEDC and Strategic eMarketing have worked together — Strategic eMarketing was a sponsor of Humboldt Lemonade Day and provided website design, social media management and blog management to AEDC coordinates the annual Humboldt Lemonade Day to support and encourage young entrepreneurs.

Several programs are available through AEDC, and the social media outreach and blogging will focus on educating businesses and young entrepreneurs about these opportunities.
