Business Solutions for Spring 2019

Our goal with this issue is to plant a few good ideas in your mind. We hope the articles in the following pages provide seeds of inspiration to help your business bloom. This Business Solutions theme stems from page 4’s Business Spotlight on Mayfields, which offers a garden center, landscaping essentials, yard ornaments, and much more at 120 S. Hibbard in Staunton. A four-generation family business, Mayfields clearly knows how to treat customers well. Madison Communications is happy to do the same for Mayfields as we provide internet and voice services. Mayfields owner Carrie Borgini is also President of the Staunton Chamber of Commerce, and you’ll find 8 Benefits of a Local Chamber of Commerce on page 3. Chamber participation is a great way to branch out with networking and cultivate relationships. On pages 5 and 6, we encourage you to Create a Customer Service Culture and Have More Fun, Get More Done. Then on page 7, check out Madison in the Community to see how we support local causes and events. Contact Madison Communications whenever your business has a communications challenge. We’ll get to the root of the situation and develop solutions that will grow along with your business.
