About Us




At Sandbox Communications, our goal is to help small businesses succeed in the most strategic, cost-effective way. It bothers us that those with big bank accounts always seem to get ahead and small businesses get left behind.


It doesn't have to be that way.

The difference is simply knowledge and understanding. Sandbox can help you effectively reach your target audience by implementing strategic marketing and communications plans that connect with your audience and increase sales.

Our Founder and CEO Heather McElrath has developed creative and innovative communications tactics to drive results. Today she brings that experience to small businesses to help you compete in a crowded world.

But that's just one side of Sandbox. It's the 'formal' business side.

The other part of Sandbox Commmunications is fun, which isn't a four-letter word. 


Fun brings energy. It brings excitement and it helps connect people.

So, why not have fun while creating results. If that sounds good to you, let's chat and see how Sandbox Communications can help you. 

Guiding our approach to communications is our 3s philosophy:

  • Service: Both to you our client and to your audience. To create a connection you can't always ask for something you have to give. You have to provide value; be of service to your audience. 

  • Simplicity: Don't take simplicity the wrong way. Instead, we are guided by a quote from Jeff Rich, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." It's also the way to keep messages clear and approachable. 

  • Situation: What does your audience need to know? What is going on in the world? What are your goals? All of these questions (and more) create the environment that you need to communicate in.
