Outside Raleigh Media

At our Core…

Outside Raleigh’s core belief and function is connecting Businesses with Communities & Communities with Businesses!

The Name…

We put emphasis & focus on the communities that surround and are Outside Raleigh. These communities are steeped in history and tradition, some over 200 years old. We are for the local farmer, the local thrift shop, the local coffee shop, etc. These communities are great destination locations for a day trip to see some of the local history, go to a farmers market or just venture out. One of the most important facets of the surrounding communities is they are a feeder system to Raleigh. We put focus on the root system of the mighty oak tree.

After successful individual careers and businesses; Rob &  Eric (the Partners) decided to join together with each contributing their own individual strength, purpose and passion. The mix of our strengths and personalities is what makes us stand apart from our competition. We are each very strong in our own specialty or discipline, but together we make an incredibly effective team. What we are not..we are not a large media company with dozens of employees. We are a small, locally owned business that will give you that individual attention to help your company or venture succeed.

Our Vision…

We had a vision to create something a bit different; we are about communities, small business, family owned & operated, shop small, shop local. We are here for the local business trying to succeed in this troubling economy. We are honest, trustworthy, fair and reliable. We also like doing business with a handshake. We listen and we include you in the process.

Our Website…

Back to our vision & core belief, we created a community based website along with information on our Marketing & Media Companies. We involve the Chambers of Commerce and publicize their events and notifications. We involve the communities and post the local calendar and talk a bit about the history. We also have a Spotlight of the month on 3 categories that focus on each community…

  1. Spotlight on a local “Food & Beverage” of the month
  2. Spotlight on “Small Business” of the month
  3. Spotlight on your local Chamber of Commerce

The Difference…

We created a one stop shop for all of your marketing needs. Depending on your individual requirements…Outside Raleigh can offer you Print Media, Web Design, SEO, Social Media, Networking, Branding, Logos, Video Production, Graphic Design and Printing. This is where we stand alone, we can offer a range of solutions to not only meet your marketing needs, but stay within budget too.


This is one of our specialties. We network every day and constantly refer our clients. Actually, we carry a portfolio of our clients business cards at all times for potential referral situations. We network for you when you are busy running your business! We network in every community and are members of over a dozen different networking groups including “The Capital Club.” What do they say about us?  We see them everywhere!

Outside Raleigh has one of the largest networking events in the Raleigh area called “The One”.   We bring together 200-300+ business owners every other month to mingle, exchange ideas and support one another.  We are different, we bring together business owners that would typically not network with one another because of vicinity.  We have people from 27 communities come together in downtown Raleigh for a fun, upscale and rewarding time.  You never know if that one person you meet will be your next largest client.

Promoter and advocate for the #SHOPLOCAL, #STAYLOCAL, #THINKLOCAL AND #SHOPSMALL campaigns.  THE ONE will invite yet another networking group to be a part of its Premier Business After-Hours Event – Giving business owners the opportunity to connect and create new business opportunities and expand their network with 150+ professionals—rarely attending the same networking event.#SHOPLOCAL campaign##SHOPLOCAL campaignPromoter
