The Andy Greder Media Company — as it’s referred to by its only employee — has sprinted into its third year of business. And you know what they say about small businesses within three years?
Well, they usually say they fail at a high clip, but The Andy Greder Media Company is stronger than ever.
In the first two-plus years, the company has built a diversified list of clients by producing meaningful and concise reporting as well as professional business writing.
The list of clients includes newspapers, magazines, e-magazines and news services. Some examples include the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Edible Twin Cities, Minnesota Business, Spaces Magazine, Twin Cities Business Magazine Edina Magazine, Overnight Buses Magazine and the Duluth News Tribune, where he got his start in journalism.
Greder’s enterprise reporting with Reuters has been picked up through news services on CNBC, the Chicago Tribune, Yahoo!, and other news outlets.
The company has also worked with trade publications such as the Duluthian Magazine and Positively Superior Magazine from two chambers of commerce in the Twin Ports area of Minnesota and Wisconsin. He has produced marketing materials for a large multi-national business, including internal sales brochures and external advertorials. He also wrote a business and marketing plan for the Pine City Farmers’ Market, where he has sold meat and vegetables he’s produced. (That moonlighting gig is another story!)
Also in the two-plus years, The Andy Greder Media Company has worked to maintain its eclectic coverage from breaking news and enterprise journalism on crime, business, sports, politics and the environment.
One beat has sprouted: agriculture reporting. (That moonlighting gig has seen the light of day!) As the tabs above show, Greder has begun to write more about food, food policy and unique systems to raise and sell food. Yum.
One beat has yet to fully germinate: travel writing. Greder has penned a few travel stories for newspapers and e-magazines and is working on final edits to a collection of travel essays from Ecuador and Argentina that will, hopefully, be published this fall.
