Corbley Communications Extends Small Business Program

Winchester, Virginia, 9 March 2006 – Corbley Communications Inc. will extend its Small Business Development Program through 2006. Corbley Communications, a public relations and marketing services firm with 13 years of experience in the geospatial industry, launched the program last year to assist new and small geospatial companies in marketing their businesses with professional PR campaigns.

“Corbley Communications has made its public relations services available at very affordable prices,” said Dave Hart, President and Co-Founder of Continental Mapping Consultants of Sun Prairie, Wisc. “We have found public relations to be the most cost-effective methods of marketing our mapping services company regionally and nationally.”

Four companies participated in the Small Business Development Program in 2005, and all have signed on for another year of public relations services at significantly reduced rates. The program is open to geospatial firms that have fewer than 12 employees or have been in business less than five years.

“We are very pleased with the interest the Small Business Program has generated, even from as far away as Africa,” said Kevin Corbley, Owner of Corbley Communications. “Press releases and articles have been the most popular services requested by participants.”

The Corbley Communications Small Business Development Program offers public relations services, consulting and training to qualified companies in all segments of the geotechnologies industry. The program is designed specifically for small businesses that want to improve profitability by raising their profiles in the marketplace and promoting their geospatial products domestically or internationally.

Offered services include:
• Public Relations Campaign Development
• Press Release Writing and Distribution
• Feature Article Writing and Placement
• Web Content Production
• Newsletter Production
• Podcasts
