Alaska Business Makes Connections

ne of the things that I enjoy most about working at Alaska Business Publishing Co. is the opportunity to make connections with amazing people in our local business community. The power of community brings together our readers, our Alaska Business Publishing Co. team, and our other partners and connects us in a common mission of supporting and advocating for Alaska’s business community.

It takes a diverse mix of businesses to keep the Alaska economy pumping. At a World Trade Center luncheon earlier this year discussing the value of commercial and international markets, I was reminded that the Export Council wouldn’t exist without Alaska’s small businesses. With the diversity of businesses in our state, there are some common denominators, one of which is Alaska Business magazine.

Reading feedback I’ve received this year, I feel encouraged that we are succeeding in our mission of helping foster our business community and supporting each other to grow our businesses and make each other stronger. Here are a few recent comments I’ve received:

“I read Alaska Business because it allows me to keep up with industry trends; I learn from other business individuals and about other companies.”

Mike Wyne, Business Development Manager Beacon OHSS, Inc.

“We love getting our monthly issue in the mail to put out to our employees to stay informed. I enjoy their website and social media to keep up with the movement of key personnel and industry trends.”

Katie Schrooten, Marketing Manager, Credit Union 1
“One of the key strengths of Alaska Business is its dedication to featuring success stories and profiles of local businesses. This not only celebrates the achievements of our fellow entrepreneurs but also serves as a source of inspiration and learning. The magazine brings together a diverse array of voices, offering different perspectives and strategies that can help us navigate the complexities of running a business in today’s ever-changing world.”
Dylan Webb, Clinic Director Ideal Health
No matter the way businesses present themselves—online, storefront, or as a supportive service on the North Slope—they are each vital, powerful, and necessary for a healthy economy. If you’ve been asking yourself how to reach more customers and get your brand in front of the leaders, the shakers, and the worker bees, let us help you. Give us a call today to start the conversation. Our next available opportunity comes with our October Top 49ers issue, which closes for ad space on August 21, 2023.
