With over 1.2 million Facebooks fans, 30A (www.30A.com) covers life in small beach towns along Florida's Gulf Coast. The brand is inspired by a beach-front road named "Scenic Highway 30-A" that runs across the region. In addition to 30A.com, there are also free 30A iPhone, Android and iPad apps, a 24/7 digital radio station (www.30Aradio.com), and retail sales (www.30Agear.com).
30A® celebrates the small-town beach life enjoyed along Florida’s gulf coast. But “30-A is more than just a road in Florida,” said ABC. “A website that started to promote a small stretch of coastline is fast becoming an international brand.” The 30A Company has given away over 1.6 million of its famous 30A stickers, and with over 1.2 million Facebook fans around the world, “30A.com has exploded" (Southern Living). The 30A Company has raised over $1.6 million for local charities and is a founding member of The Sonder Project. 30A was recently invited to speak about the hyperlocal brand's success at the "3D Journalism" conference in Moscow, Russia.
With over 1.2 million Facebook fans, 30A's social media presence is a powerful resource. Our new digital radio station has also created a new dimension to our stories and brand, allowing for music and in-depth community interviews (www.30Aradio.com).
