Tuni SchartnerThe Hive RI & TRS Strategies
“…with ideas that pop like kernels of corn in hot oil and a love & passion for helping small businesses and the RI economy grow; digital marketing, PR, business strategy & development…is more of a calling than a profession. I have chosen a life that my work is woven into and I work with people I know, like & trust!” Tuni Schartner
Mission: to help businesses thrive, to help the economy grow and to always focus on the greater good…
I am passionately committed to working with innovative people with engaged growth mindsets that understand the value of partnering with our team to grow their businesses. This applies whether they are small with local offerings or large with global offerings, municipalities or state government. I am a Digital/Online Marketing & Business Strategist providing a wide range of services including: strategic planning, seo, content marketing, social media strategy development & execution, permission based e-mail mktg. – integrated mktg. – planning & execution, as well as program & event planning/consulting. I studied English and Psychology at the University of Rhode Island and continue my education in all aspects of digital marketing, SEO and business development, social psychology, planning and economics. I co-founded The Hive RI, Southern RI’s first coworking space and run the continued community based economic development initiative at the Mill at Lafayette, as well as work with Congressman Langevin on his Strengthening RI Advisory Committee. I am a proud member of the Southern RI, East Greenwich and Newport County Chambers of Commerce, and am a board member with AMP-RI (Advertising/Marketing/Public Relations). I remain a perennial, passionate, and sometimes outspoken proponent of economic development in RI with a focus on Southern RI.
