Why Us?

It’s a good question. With so many other providers of web services, why should you even think about ‘breaking even’? Here are a few reasons some people like working with us:

Full Time Support For Your Business
I’ve heard of businesses waiting weeks to get changes made on their websites or getting something posted onto their Facebook page where Breaking Even can respond in less than 48 hours to a request. We run a full time web business, just like you do what you do full time. So we can respond faster and do the task efficiently while you do what you’re great at.

Training For Yourself Or Your Staff
Want to learn more about social media, maintaining web sites, or anything else internet related? We have trained hundreds of people (including several competitors!) to do parts of what we do. We’re happy to help you use your business or organization’s capacity or consult with you on how you can make better decisions online that’ll save you time and money.

An Established Company
Did your web designer run off to a tropical island? Did the student you paid to make you a Facebook page stop returning your emails? We’ve been running our company since 2008, full time since 2009. We aren’t going anywhere and play active roles in our community through the Bar Harbor Chamber, Bar Harbor MDI Rotary Club, and other volunteer service.

Knowledge About Topics, Looking Ahead To Trends
We aren’t just savvy of current trends in design, website usability, social media, email marketing, the mobile web, internet culture, and blogging but always looking at the future, hoping to place our clients ahead in the race instead of just keeping up with the pack.

Local Service
Breaking Even Communications is based in Bar Harbor, Maine. (With Nicole making frequent trips to Fort Kent, Kassie making trips Downeast, and John living in Auburn.) We understand the unique opportunities, challenges, and realities of being in Maine because we’re here too. Year round.

The Power Of *Not* Doing It All
We want to be *really* good at what we do. Doing this means we remain focused on online media and work with other professionals who do those other bits well. (We have friendly relationships with event planners, print designers, video producers, and others who we can bring into projects as necessary.) We remaining focused on internet marketing means we can stay current and bring the most useful information to our customers.
