About UZU

Who We Are + What We Do

UZU: Great connections. Great business.

When we were starting UZU (pronounced oo-zoo), we had a lot of thoughts about the kind of company we wanted to create: a place where creativity, efficacy, and connection were at the forefront. Doing business with people you like and trust is a pretty important thing, but it’s also important that a great product is delivered in the end! We look for authentic connection with our clients as we strive towards our goal of providing the best possible service to them.

What Makes Us Tick

As our team at UZU Media has grown, it was pretty easy to figure out what we wanted to focus on. We love bringing together strong content, brilliant design (humble brag), and the newest technology to create a powerful branding and online marketing experience for our clients. Finding ways to strengthen and grow our clients’ business is our highest priority. We accomplish this through a few main things: social media marketing, search engine optimization, website design and development, and company branding. With the ever changing world of online marketing, our clients trust us to keep their businesses in tip top shape online. We take pride in offering the best services and product to our clients.

Because of our entrepreneurial spirit, we understand the passion and diligence it takes to build a successful business. One of our main goals is helping our clients find the heart and soul of their companies in order to build and develop strategies for community engagement and online presence. By knowing the identity of a company, we can then strategically market it to a target audience, increasing sales and online interaction through effective digital marketing, branding and social media solutions.

As members of the Colorado Springs community, we want to be good neighbors and partners with other local businesses. We love networking with other companies in town, helping them find success in the things they are doing, but also coming together to support our city. When our community was hit with tragedy in the summer of 2012, we were privileged to be a part of the amazingly successful Wild Fire Tees campaign, which raised over $500,000 for victims of the Waldo Canyon Fire. We were really proud of our design, which we were told was one of the top sellers.

It is our goal to be a part of making Colorado Springs an awesome place for people to do business. UZU Media’s digital marketing and branding solutions will help elevate your business’ long term growth.

For more information on how we go about helping our clients find their corporate identity, through our “Remembering, Rethinking and Rebranding” process, check out our “How” page.
