Steve Jobs once said ``Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.``

Are you impressed that we made a sports reference and quoted Steve Jobs, all in the intro to our blog section? You should be. We worked hard on that. As we did with these blogs - they are a great place to start to read more about social media marketing and what to look for in hiring a social media marketer.

With a nod toward founder Nora Brathol’s passion for international human rights, Arka Pana’s name was inspired by a church in Nowa Huta, Poland that survived communism, was consecrated by the man who became Pope John Paul II, and whose Christ statue is famous as a stark memory of the atrocities of World War II. Arka Pana church stands as a reminder of our world’s past and as an ark of refuge and hopeful faith in the future. All is possible with a touch of faith! But, faith begins with action - contact us below.
