About

So you have a website, now what?

Our whole company was founded when, in 2008, our first client came out of a friend asking Nicole this very question.

Breaking Even Communications has since worked with hundreds of individuals, companies, and non-profits with the very individualized answers that come out of this very simple seeming question. Here’s what we do in three categories:

Marketing: This gets your business in front of current and potential customers and builds relationships online with tools like social media, email newsletters, and blogging.

Maintenance: Keeping your website up-to-date not only means making sure information and website software are current, ensuring customer happiness and hacker unhappiness.

Training: We allow people to be trained one-on-one, in small groups, or in large groups on technology topics.

To learn more, check out our marketing, maintaining or training service pages and meet some of our clients. And here’s a bit about us:

Nicole Ouellette, Owner

Nicole began internet life as a casual blogger in 2005 but soon she was hooked, wanting more and more people to read her blog. Eventually she decided to try to make money from her passion and began helping business owners in Downeast Maine with their blogging in 2008.  Breaking Even Communications went a full time gig in 2009.

Other than being a technology enthusiast, Nicole is a geology major and certified science teacher and is happy to talk about ramp and pluck structures and assymetric boudinage. She also speaks French, is a surprisingly good cook, and enjoys short legged dogs. More about Nicole…
