Who is Bluestone Prairie Media?
Bluestone Prairie Media is a full-stack agency founded by Jody Peters.
Jody grew up on and now owns a farm in rural Manitoba, so she knows the intensity and unpredictability that farming includes and takes to heart the value of community. She started her career as a teacher and has worked with people for as long as she can remember. Her passion has always been to help make people's lives easier while promoting community.
As an educator, the unpredictability of COVID-19 forced her to become an expert in online technology as she was tasked with teaching students in-person and remotely. Her passion for people made this transition easier for her students.
Jody became the go-to regulations resource for her church’s decision-makers at the beginning of the pandemic because she has a keen eye for detail and an in-depth understanding of English nuances. This understanding has translated into formidable success in writing over the past two years as she finished her Inclusive Education Post-Baccalaureate (Post-Bac).
The pandemic brought an increase in online shopping, and Jody quickly realized that the small businesses in her local community needed the online presence they deserved. After significant research, she partnered with Sydney Ray Marketing and Design to offer full-stack website design, marketing, and advertising services to the small businesses surrounding her.
Our core team consists of Jody (owner), Sydney Ray of Sydney Ray Design and Marketing (agency partner), Gia of Clever Goat Media (agency partner), and Scott Lucas of Scott Lucas Solutions (project manager).
Sydney has been designing websites since she taught herself how to hand-code in the mid-90s. She has created and developed hundreds of websites using various custom tools and CMS (content management system) platforms. She spends most of her time building large eCommerce websites, lead-generation landing pages, coaching platforms, and information-based websites offering subscriptions. Her focus has been on well-funded startups and the financially secure entrepreneur that is generating a minimum of 5-figures online. Over the last few years, she has grown to include medium size companies and enterprise-based e-commerce builds and has grown her skillset into an award-winning agency with certifications in SEO, Shopify Design and most recently was approved to become a Meta Business Partner Member Agency.
Gia has been combining technology and business for most of her life. She focuses on restaurant businesses, emphasizing visually pleasing photography, menu item descriptions, experiential copy, and marketing. Since 2018, she and her team have successfully managed the online assets of 11 different restaurants.
Scott has been Sydney’s project manager and right-hand man for over six years. He currently serves as Sydney's Director of IT as well as Project Manager on all Client-related projects.
Personally, Jody is a wife and mother to three young children (5, 3, and 1). Because she understands the importance of quality family time, our work schedule is Monday - Friday with the optional Saturday and Sunday. She also has a shepherd/chocolate lab cross dog, a siamese cat, and occasionally the odd outdoor cat - if the dog lets them near.
She enjoys writing and playing music, crafting, and learning new skills in her spare time. Most of her time is still spent raising her three children to be the best version of themselves and leading them by example.
Our mission as an agency is to create and build high-quality, successful e-commerce websites for clients using Sydney Ray Design and Marketing’s proprietary (and patent-pending) Discovery SOP. Our business is grounded in “relationship marketing.” We strongly believe that open, honest communication is the foundation for building respectful, long-lasting relationships with our clients.
This mission extends to how we are building our agency. We are different from other website design and marketing agencies because we work with agency owners in-house and Referral Partners. Jody also has a virtual team located all over the world. Each team member focuses on our clients’ success.
Bluestone Prairie Media uses lifestyle-based imagery, color psychology, “copy-that-sells,” and SEO (search engine optimization) to build powerful websites. We view our work as “online artwork.” When they are combined with our practical marketing analytical work and social media marketing and advertising strategies, our websites generate organic sales.
ETHICS AND PRINCIPLES
Honesty, loyalty, trust, and determination are the foundational characteristics we maintain. When we make a mistake, we believe that admitting and working to fix it is the best way to move forward. Our discovery process allows clients to consider their needs and goals deeply. It also gives our team the needed information to determine if the relationship will be mutually beneficial.
Our team includes top, certified experts in website design, development, content, copywriting, SEO, lead generation, project management, social media marketing, and Google AdWords. We work with over 40 professionals worldwide in all areas of online portfolio management.
