About Us

Our President

Anne Maria Bello has been work­ing on City Mar­ket­ing since 2001.  In 1999 she left her tra­di­tional job at Sears, Boyn­ton Beach after 13 years, where work­ing with the Oper­a­tions Man­ager Tyrone Sanders she assisted on exe­cut­ing local store mar­ket­ing strate­gies in the “phys­i­cal world”.

She began her start up com­pany per­form­ing all com­puter ser­vices, includ­ing web admin­is­tra­tion and inter­net mar­ket­ing.  She cre­ated an online con­cept in Palm Beach County, and in 2005 moved to New­berry FL, where she con­tin­ued the con­cept and worked on build­ing the brand.  Today, she con­tin­ues to own and run PBPar­rot Designs & Com­puter Ser­vices, started in 1999, a full ser­vice web admin­is­tra­tion com­pany, and as her mar­ket­ing con­cept has expanded, she moved the mar­ket­ing por­tion of the busi­ness to Visit New­berry Florida, which pri­mar­ily ser­vices local res­i­dents and busi­nesses through three online vehi­cles:  GoNewberry.com, for the res­i­dent and busi­ness of West­ern Alachua County, NewberryFloridaSports.com, for the sports and recre­ation tourism indus­try in west­ern Alachua County,   and the grow­ing tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity indus­try here through VisitNewberryFL.com.

One Year later she added High Springs in the same man­ner, GoHighSprings.com, HighSpringsRecreation.com and VisitHighSpringsFL.com.  These online e-journals con­tinue to pro­vide infor­ma­tion to the res­i­dent, busi­ness, tourist and recre­ation enthu­si­ast while cre­at­ing an oppor­tu­nity for small busi­nesses to adver­tise locally, at a rea­son­able cost   and not funded by pub­lic dol­lars!  This is a project for the peo­ple by the peo­ple, and is com­pletely funded by the part­ner­ships that are formed though web admin­is­tra­tion and online adverting.

Anne grad­u­ated the New­berry Main Street incu­ba­tor pro­gram after 18 months.  She works to not only increase local inter­net mar­ket­ing, but phys­i­cal city, county and state hos­pi­tal­ity and promotion.

Anne is absolutely pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing ways that oth­ers can see the value of Florida, but espe­cially in the area of Western Alachua County and out­ly­ing areas.  She specializes in utilizing social media tools, search engine optimization and networking to be found on the web, and increase the value of the partners who invest in marketing and the local towns.  Her slogan is “if you can’t be found on the web, I am out of business!”
