5 to Follow: A Summary of Nashville’s Best

Parthenon has been scanning the city for the savviest social media locals, and today we’re bringing you our greatest hits. You may have seen our blogs about these organizations as part of our 5 to Follow series.

While compiling these lists, our goal has been two-fold:

  1. We want to show people that Nashville is thriving and creative, a hub of local pride and talented businesses. As marketers by trade and Nashville enthusiasts by choice, Parthenon wants to celebrate organizations employing creative marketing, advertising and social media efforts in our hometown!
  2. We are competing in the Nashville Business Journal’s Social Media Madness competition, and we want to win. We can’t think of a better way to ensure we stay ahead of the social media curve than to profile some other trendsetters. And the competition is still going on, so if you haven’t voted yet, please do it today!
