BluePrint Business Communications


“Franklin Street was my favorite and greatest classroom to learn from throughout my time at UNC-Chapel Hill,” said BluePrint Business Communications, President, Brice Connors. The North Carolina native often heard small business owners and startup entrepreneurs complain about the lack of quality Business Communication offerings within the area. This inspired Connors to make the trek up and down the iconic Franklin Street on a blistering hot spring day sporting a navy blue blazer and a NorthFace backpack. Stepping in and out of restaurants, retail shops, and even a bicycle shop — Connors was told “no” 20 times. His luck changed on his 21st try and BluePrint Business Communications was born. A local hot dog restaurant had recently moved on from their previous digital marketing provider citing creative differences and was willing to take the gamble on the sweaty college student. Upon generating solid results and attracting the eye of the NCAA on social media when soliciting athletes to check out the hot dog joint, Connors was able to take his success on Franklin Street and generate a buzz throughout Raleigh. Along the way, BluePrint Business Communications assembled a team of highly skilled marketing and advertising professionals and expanded service offerings. These efforts resulted in acquiring clients beyond the Old North State. To date, BluePrint Business Communications has worked with startup companies all the way up to businesses reporting annual revenues of $40 million. These businesses have been based in North Carolina, South Carolina, California, Virginia, and even Bermuda. It would not be inaccurate to say BluePrint Business Communications has gone international.
