What our partners have to say!
Owner and Editor, writer – Amber Newburry
"Creative Collective has been an essential ally to FunDead Publications. In 2016, FunDead was a brand-new, budding Salem publishing company with a very small, but loyal following. Creative Collective was key in shining a light on us to their many local, and not-so-local, followers. Thanks to Creative Collective, we added hundreds of new followers to our own social media and saw exponential growth in our writing submission numbers.

“ Creative Collective has been outstanding in helping our new fitness facility reach our potential customers throughout the community. They are by far the best investment we have made for growing our business and our relationships. If you’re trying to grow a business in the North Shore I highly recommend you work with Creative Collective. “
Dan Donato - Owner
"The Creative Collective has been a great way to meet other business owners on the North Shore. The Collective staff is adept at facilitating networking events that feel authentic and not like traditional "networking" events I've been to. I also enjoy that the mission leans toward the creative and artistic communities. It's been perfect for my organization."
