News and Media Content
SoFlo Vegans is the eyes and ears of the growing vegan community in South Florida. This comes in the form of producing podcasts, articles, social media content, videos, and a magazine. Coverage is contributed by passionate volunteers who believe in our mission and want to play a key role in making it a reality. We are committed to showcasing all of the vegan businesses, nonprofits, and events that take place in our community. The only thing that we ask for in return, is that the community keeps providing and supporting these valuable services. As your support continues to grow, so will the platform and ability to spotlight the vegan scene in South Florida.
Marketing and Production Services
SoFlo Vegans is backed by Lesaruss Media, a marketing agency with over 25 years of professional experience. Our specialty is building bridges in the community. In 2021, we are shifting to making our services affordable and accessible for the vegan community. These services include web design, mobile app development, video production, social media management, SEO, and pretty much everything else you can imagine. We’re also creating job opportunities for community members by connecting with talented media producers and managers. These individuals are also lending their gifts to help propel SoFlo Vegans. This allows us to continue to scale as an organization and provide news and promotion to the community. Another part aspect of business services is promotion. This includes sponsorships and advertising.
The third aspect of our organization is our LIVE events. Since officially launching in 2017, we’ve hosted and supported over 300 events in South Florida. We even jumped into the digital space throughout 2020, launching an expo, with over 15 different guests, and three days of original programming. We have some really exciting things coming up for 2021 as well as 2022. Our goal is to build a promotional system that guarantees a massive turnout for any event that is supported by our organization.
