Community Marketing Concepts

Community Marketing Concepts (CMC) is committed to connecting their client’s messages to their targeted customers.  Founded in 1995 by Linda Chandler, President and CEO, Linda proudly leads her minority and women-owned family business located in the Overbrook section of Philadelphia.   The marketing, public relations and communications agency focuses on connecting clients’ messages to their targeted communities via CMC’s distinctive approach to traditional engagement strategies and digital communications platforms.

CMC was first a client of PIDC since 2014.  They participated in the Contract Line of Credit financing program, which provides support to small, minority-, women-, and disabled-owned businesses in need of a line of credit to fund contract-related working capital.  Chandler recognizes “PIDC funding [as] a ‘business saver.’ Since being a client with PIDC, we’ve experienced 30% growth, hired additional staff, invested in our business and ourselves.”  CMC also appreciates the entrepreneur-friendly climate of Philadelphia, noting she is “I’m thankful for the great people I meet and interact with from all walks of life, our customers and the communities of people we  engage and of course, the interaction of commerce.”

CMC’s work is marked by their belief in the power of word of mouth advocacy and influence.   CMC’s clients seeking marketing and public sector cover both the public and private sectors, including Coca-Cola, PECO, CVS Pharmacy, the City of Philadelphia Department of Public Health, and the Philadelphia Streets Department.

PIDC is proud of the accomplishments of Linda Chandler and her team and am excited for the future possibilities!
