About

What is Bham Now?  

We are the mobile, modern guide to Birmingham.

Why the head?  modern Vulcan head

The teal bearded head represents a modern, hipster Vulcan.  It also looks like most guys we run into at the local breweries, except for the teal part.

What is our mission? 

Our mission is to help create a better, smarter, healthier, more forward-moving Birmingham.

What is our focus?  

Bham Now is focused on new business, innovation, wellness, nature and having fun in the ‘ham.  Bham Now is NOT the go-to site for football scores, crime or weather unless it is a social issue.

How do we do this?   

We offer digital media that is engaging, (at least we try), has utility, is actionable and sometimes entertaining.

 

In addition, Bham Now hosts the BOLD Speaker Series, featuring locals who have stepped forward in significant ways to make Birmingham better.

What do we offer clients?  

There are a lot of things that Bham Now is not good at.  We’re not your SEO expert nor your automated digital network buy. We believe, however, that we are the best content marketers in Birmingham.  We know Birmingham.  We are locally owned, locally operated and are heavily invested in making our city better.
