All About UZU
Who We Are + What We Do
UZU: Great connections. Great business.
When we were starting UZU Media (pronounced oo-zoo), we had a lot of thoughts about the kind of company we wanted to create: a place where creativity, capability, 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!

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 products 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.
UZU GIVES BACK
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 more than $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.
From 2016-2018 and also in 2019, we’ve also donated our time and services to the Indy Give! Campaign and awarded both strategy consulting time and new websites to deserving non profits. It’s been really rewarding to get to know these organizations.
In 2018 and 2019 we’ve taken further steps forward to help our neighbors, and have begun to work with a prison-based non profit whose mission is to support the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated to become successful, legal entrepreneurs and employees. We’ve found these outlets to give our business far greater meaning than we could have hoped.
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 have been helping elevate Colorado Springs businesses and organizations for almost 10 years now.
