Space researchers enlist Georgia-based AVG Communications and EJW Associates, Inc. marketing team to gain global attention for far out ideas. For aerospace technology researchers, boosting awareness is a critical first step in building professional collaboration and technology application acceptance. Securing funds for the world’s first photon laser thruster prototype, and development of alternative spacecraft propulsion that uses the earth’s magnetic field are ultimate goals for two new clients: Bae Institute, and Cornell University’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department. The AVG/EJW marketing team, working with principal researchers at each organization, has already implemented a basic marketing program for each. Both plans call for the launch of public relations campaigns supported by illustrative web sites. So far, marketing results indicate all systems go, with news being picked up by over 50 news outlets worldwide, and a quantum leap in site traffic and inquiries. Doors to major private and government funding sources have been opened, with funding pitches favorably received.
A long time space research advocate, Bob Scaringe of AVG has logged countless hours marketing the benefits of space exploration and the technology’s halo effect on consumer and commercial developments. He is an active volunteer in the Atlanta-based NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts (NIAC), whose mission is to encourage “thinking decades into the future in pursuit of concepts that will ‘leapfrog’ the evolution of current aerospace systems.” Emil Walcek, president of EJW Associates has been crafting technology content and producing creative B to B marketing communications for over two decades. Backgrounds:
Dr. Bae of the California-based Bae Institute is inventor of, and has recently demonstrated, the world’s first laser beam thrust engine. His photon laser thruster will initially be developed to control spacecraft formations, and enable a thousand-fold improvement in space and earth-directed observations.
At Cornell University, Dr. Mason Peck is in a similar stage of research and development for demonstrating the application of planetary magnetic fields to revolutionize space mission travel.
AVG Communications is a business-to-business marketing consulting firm in Marietta, GA. EJW Associates, Inc is a business-to-business interactive marketing communications agency in Alpharetta, GA.

Challenge: Atlanta-based Bluefields Capital, a provider of short term hard money loans to residential real estate investors in the Southeast, required a more complete online resource for home rehabbers, loan partners, and a growing customer service staff in order to meet more aggressive business expansion goals. They enlisted EJW Associates, Inc. to take the www.BluefieldsCapital.com site from a serviceable brochureware site into a fully interactive one. Project specifications called for site visitor interaction that includes automation of the complete loan package process. Bluefields staff required secure, browser-based administrative control of all transaction content to oversee borrower, property, property repair information. The same automation and control was needed for a loan referral partner program to set up and track partner records, links, and commissions. Integration with Salesforce.com was required to ensure seamless customer relationship management (CRM).
“It became apparent that in order to grow Bluefields Capital into a major Southeastern player in the home investor market we needed to centralize and automate our loan origination processes and business apps into by a common, database-driven website that automates routine processes for customers, partners, and staff. We now have an integrated system that is simple, secure, and enables our staff to manage all aspects of the funding process from hard money loan application to project management for a high volume of short-term property rehabilitation loan deals,” said Dana Webster, Bluefields Capital CEO.
Through their new site (http://www.bluefieldscapital.com), Bluefields has automated all of the routines required in the course of a residential investment property deal. Customers have direct, on-line resource control throughout a home rehab project that typically lasts 90 days or less. Investors may complete loan applications and draw requests, maintain profiles for investment properties, appraisals, and renovation contractor resource information directly through the site. Loan referral partners can register, set up reciprocal links, and view their referral account status online.
“Real estate investment transactions require a number of due diligence documents that need to be offered to the borrower, his or her associates, or our own partners in an easily executable manner,” Webster said. “The new site provides a direct, on-line interface for procuring and managing funding for each deal. That’s vital in our quick-turn, residential real estate rehab market.”
Solution: Bluefields Capital turned to EJW Associates, Inc., an Atlanta-based interactive marketing and technology firm, to revamp the site EJW originally created for Bluefields Capital. The redesign included a full needs assessment, design and implementation phases, and turn-key services for Bluefields Capital spanning online strategy, creative design, admin systems, custom development, and hosting. Content management capabilities are provided through EJW scripting based on an open server LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python) standard. Bluefields began processing a stepped up volume of loans throughout the Southeast within days of its debut this year. “We’re excited that everything’s working so well,” according to Bluefields President Mark Webster. “Our site has become a real engine for our growth while substantially reducing overhead. Each department is receiving the information they need to keep on top of an exponentially increasing base of our investor clients looking for short term hard money and superior service.”
