For Immediate Release
Contact: Amanda Escobio, Secretary Bridge Street Merchants

With so much happening on Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island’s south end, the Bridge Street Merchants created a new website. The newly designed launched recently via local web developers Zora Creative. “Zora was not only very creative as their name promises, but also very reasonably priced and very easy to work with,” said BSM Secretary Amanda Escobio, owner of Sea-renity Beach Spa & Eco Boutique. The merchants connected with Zora Creative through networking events hosted by the AMI Chamber of Commerce.

Zora Creative is a newcomer to the island, relocating here from Cleveland just a year ago. “I have rarely seen a new business come to the island and make inroads so quickly with so many different businesses, ” says Deb Wing new President of the AMI Chamber. In addition to web services, Zora offers graphic design, SEO, photography and video production. “We strive for user-friendly, full-featured, and visually stunning websites that rank high in Google. We like to work closely with local businesses to provide them a unique online presence that most effectively markets their product & message. With Bridge Street, it was wonderful helping the merchants showcase the great things they have to offer Anna Maria Island.”

Using the existing tagline of Shop, Dine, Play from Beach to Bay, includes a merchant directory organized by shop, dine, play. Another important feature of the new site is to help visitors and locals find details about upcoming events, including the Sunday Markets, artsHOP, Food Challenges, Free Outdoor Movies and Christmas on Bridge Street. It also provides information about live music since Bridge Street boasts the island’s largest selection of live music within walking distance.
