How Do We Let the Community in Rock Hill Know We Are Here?

By Jessie Relation · Posted on Friday, August 18, 2017



How do we let the community know we are here and what we do without breaking the bank? We just hit our one year mark and still get asked how long have you been open or they say "I had no idea you where even here." We have our social media accounts but that only goes so far. We also tried groupon for a short bit, but the effects didn't last.

Jessie,

I think your location on Oakland Avenue (which I myself just noticed last weekend), can be a tough sell. If you were on Main Street or even closer to Main Street, you would probably get more notice. You're just kind of invisible where you are. I've seen that the businesses in your particular area that do the best are highly publicized with serious social networking, involvement in the community, and some good PR to get them started.

I think your idea is unique enough in the Rock Hill area that with some serious work on marketing, you should be able to... (more)

That would be fantastic! Thank you Carol. We aren't doing bad, as this location allowed us to buy a second location, but we could always do better!

For any businesses that are new to the area with retail products or services, I work with a majority of schools, sports teams, churches and non profits. When I kick off fundraisers, I often give away prizes and pitch that local business. So if you have an escape room, I will take your tickets as prizes and give away while pitching your business. Call me at

Schools are hard for us because Escape room games aren't really set up for them. Sure they can play but they must have an adult with them. Families have a great time with this and we have had troops, school, and birthday parties as well that have had a wonderful experience. I just want to be clear that they can not play by themselves.

Yes that would have to be the case. One other thought is we also give incentives to teachers as well and lots of other adult groups. When could we meet up? My number is

Old downtown Rock Hill has issues, very little foot traffic, they don't seem to support the small local business. Very little pull to the area, instead of having unique small business that would attract more people downtown, they have realtors, lawyers, 4 banks and so on. The few people we know that had businesses downtown have both left. As we will be doing soon. Oh there was something someone pointed out to us, if you watch buildings around here, say Chinese Restaurant goes out of business, the building will be empty till another Chinese Restrauant comes...

I hate to hear about another business leaving the area. We chose to be in Rock Hill because we are from York county. We love the game and want others to enjoy our love as well. We wish the best for you and your company.
