Third Sun Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary

July 25, 2015 Written by Third Sun

Third Sun Productions celebrates 10 years in business this month. Humble beginnings and leaps of faith may be cliché, but are nonetheless apt descriptions of Third Sun’s early days. Two people leaving community radio to start a company building websites for small businesses and nonprofits seemed a little on the wrong side of crazy.

We leaned on friends and contacts, traded in-kind work for promotion with events like the Utah Arts Festival. A decade later, the festival is still a client and we’re still proud to have our logo on their banners every June. UAF is just one of a number of clients who have been with us since the early days. Their loyalty — and the countless other repeat clients — may be the most rewarding part of the last 10 years. Plus, there is no better marketing than referrals from happy clients.

Plenty has changed online since 2005 and we’ve had to adapt, learn and teach along the way. Even in today’s world of mobile views, responsive design, target marketing, SEO, and social media, our goals remain the same: keep things simple for clients so you can focus on what’s really important — whether it be advancing the mission of a nonprofit or growing a small business.

A special thanks to the following organizations and businesses for being our clients for nearly all of those 10 years:

  • Brandenburger & Davis
  • Catalyst
  • FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake
  • HawkWatch International
  • KUER 
  • Local First Utah
  • NAMI Utah
  • NeighborWorks
  • Pat’s BBQ
  • Rocky Mountain Research
  • Social Marketing Consultants
  • Utah Arts Festival
  • USEE
  • Utah Nonprofits Association

Looking back, you all took a leap of faith right along with us. You turned our humble beginnings into a company with 200+ current clients. Thank you for your continued support and confidence.

Last, but certainly not least, we thank our families and close friends who have been there all along the way cheering us on. Here's to the next 10 years!
