About JBS Partners

Jim in NevisThe name of the company was created with my wife Barbara in mind, although she now works full-time planning parties at the Country Club. The J and the S stand for Jim Spencer.

The photo on the left was taken in Nevis, West Indies in the summer of 2005. We lived there for 4 years in the early 90′s and decided to take the kids there to see the islands. It is still beautiful and full of some of the friendliest people in the Caribbean.

Partners - We have a couple of Partners – clients and colleagues:


Clients - We partner with our clients. Clients appreciate a consultative approach, as a trusted advisor, that allows us to structure projects to meet their requirements, and not a “one size fits all” vending machine approach.

Each of our web sites is hand-made by combining our clients vision with our experience and creativity. Just ask Chris. He has the first word on the testimonials page.

Colleagues - We are fortunate to work with a range of colleagues whose availability and expertise in graphic design, web and print production, custom programming, writing, photography, PPC, SEO and other specialties match varying client requirements. Our colleagues appreciate the new ideas, collaborative approach and satisfaction of working with JBS Partners and our clients.

The name JBS Partners combines the important concepts of family, clients and colleagues.

The local newspaper, The Winchester Star, published a brief profile entitled Jim Spencer web entrepreneur if you want to read a bit more about Jim.

John Cass asked me to comment on a social media adoption in the US grocery industry infograpahic. My response has been posted on his blog http://pr.typepad.com/pr_communications/2010/09/jim-spencers-take-on-shopper-social-media-marketing.html I was impressed that a handful of grocery chains had jumped into video because it can be a more expensive and challenging medium to work with.
