Wikipedia defines email marketing as: In its broadest sense, every email sent to a potential or current customer could be considered email marketing. It usually involves using email to send advertisements, request business, or solicit sales or donations, and is meant to build loyalty, trust, or brand awareness.
Our designers and strategists can put together extremely effective email campaigns for your organization! We help provide compelling content that will engage your mailing list, drive more traffic and help spread the word about your organization.
When smartphones first came out, and we navigated to a website, we would see the entire website in the confines of our 3.5 inch screen. It required the viewer to zoom in on the site so they could read the copy, then scroll around in all directions in order to navigate the website. Then came the mobile website, which is a redesign of the existing website so that all the content was viewed in a linear stream. We only needed to scroll up and down, and the text was large enough to be read without zooming. It was a simple solution to the original website, unless you constantly updated the website. You would have to remember to update the mobile version as well as the original website. Twice the amount of work for the same results. Then came the responsive web design. The RWD uses the one website and adapts the layout to the size of the screen in which it is viewed. It can even be coded so that some content shows up on the smaller screens, and other content shows up on the full width view. It is very versatile and makes it convenient to develop one website that can be viewed on any size device. Initially it takes a little longer to design, but saves time throughout the life of the website when it comes to adding, updating and removing content.
Depending on when your website was built, it will fall into one of those 3 categories. The issue with the first category (a non RWD website without a mobile website) is that it will be dinged by Google. In other words, the site will not register as high on a search results page as a competitors website which is built with RWD or has a mobile site.
We recently have had several occasions to work with Rick Blount. We were thoroughly impressed with his skill as a photographer and felt that he was actually working with us, as a partner would do. He was able to take our vague ideas and turn them into the perfect photograph and the perfect ad layout. He exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend him to anyone else who is in need of “creative genius”.
