About Shop Northern Indiana

When Gov. Eric Holcomb issued a Stay-at-Home order for the State of Indiana, our world changed. For small businesses, online commerce became a lifeline. The ability to find and support locally owned businesses is now one of the most immediate ways we have all discovered to get through COVID-19.

Write Connections

Write Connections | strategy + design, LLC. is a marketing firm in northern Indiana. We are both strategists and creatives. When we saw our clients (small business owners and local nonprofits) struggle to pivot and reach their customers, we stepped in. We worked with them to shift to online sales, to communicate daily through social media, and to create new tools on their websites. We helped make sure that people can find, support, and interact with them.

In a time when we all want to help, but we are either “safe at home” or working like crazy as “essential staff,” it’s hard to know how to help.  For us, Write Connections, creating this website was one small way we could help in a time of crisis.

It’s a place where you can see who is “open for business” during COVID-19 and how best to support the businesses in our communities.
