Our mission is to create a big presence for small businesses; to share their stories, to engage customers and the local community.

Our Mission: 

The Pearl at Longshore, Westport, CT

The Pearl at Longshore, Westport, CT


Our Beginning:

Founder and owner Jessica Gordon Ryan has spent the past 10 years photographing and writing about the food, beverage and lifestyle industries for various local and national publications including  Fairfield Magazine, Wilton Magazine,  Moffly Media Publications: Westport Magazine, AtHome in Fairfield County, Greenwich Magazine, Yankee Magazine, The Daily Basics, CTBites, and Coastal Connecticut Magazine. She frequently wrote about new and emerging businesses, and saw they often needed promotional help beyond her articles. 

Small businesses are integral to the vibrancy of local communities. GIMLET MARKETING embraces boutique businesses and their local communities.


"I wanted to create a business that would embrace local communities, where businesses and patrons work together and support one another."

— Jessica Gordon Ryan, FOUNDER


Our Philosophy:


GIMLET MARKETING believes that every successful business has a compelling story and that a well crafted story is an art-form that combines both words and images. These stories are then shared using both traditional and social media to generate powerful stories that best reflect both your brand's voice and vision.
