We believe that having a Social Media Presence for your business is crucial, especially in today’s day in
age! If you didn’t think your business shouldn’t have a social media presence before 2022, this year alone
has proven that you should!
Social Media is a way for Businesses to communicate with their customers. It’s a way to provide value &
helpful information to people within their network. Social Media gives businesses a platform to display
their knowledge & their services to essentially whoever they’d like. It allows your Business to provide
information 24 hours a day / 365 days in a year! It allows your Business to reach customers not just
locally, but anywhere in the world, with proper Location based advertising.
Social Media allows Businesses to make personal relationships with their customers by helping solve their day
to day problems. If set up correctly, social media can give customers a way to communicate with their
favorite local businesses. A relationship like that, is one all businesses should strive for. The great part
about it, all of their interactions can be public, and other new customers can see how well their customer
satisfaction is, which can be quite helpful too for future business opportunities!
Lastly, Social Media can be a great platform for Businesses to document their journeys! Document all of the
achievements they have accomplished over the years. All of the great projects & great customers they have
acquired, this can all be documented! This content alone will allow Businesses to scale systemically &
exponentially! It will allow their story to help paint the picture for future customers of what their
companies are all about.

As you know in today’s time the Digital Marketing space is now more competitive than ever before. The competition for small businesses is increasing every day. Being able to rank for your local keywords is continually getting harder every month. Google is the #1 Search Engine in today’s day in age and a big ranking factor for their algorithm is Mobile Website Responsiveness. Simply put, your website must be designed for both Desktop viewers and Mobile viewers. As mobile technology continues to emerge, viewers are now more than likely visiting your website from their mobile devices. So as business owners you must take that into account when developing your business’s website.
Responsive Design First
With that being said, when designing websites for our clients we always design their sites with the mobile view first. This way we know we are off to the right start when developing. We design them to scale across all devices in an appropriate manner.
What is the typical percent of traffic for Desktop vs Mobile?
- This depends on your audience. But most of our clients get around 60% Mobile Traffic and 40% Desktop Traffic.
Will our websites also be responsive for devices larger than phones such as iPads or Tablets?
- Absolutely, we design our sites with a mobile design at first. But the design will also be scalable all the way up to large desktop screens.
Is there any additional fee for including a Responsive Website design?
- No, this is included with all of our website design packages.

Important to Make Sure Your Business Information is Accurate
Claiming your business on Google is very important. Having ownership of your Business listing allows you the
ability to record accurate and helpful information to your active and new customers. Google requires a
verification code sent to your business address to confirm the Business’s identity. Whenever you start a
business it’s recommended that you do this as soon as you can, so that no one else requests ownership of
your business, preventing any type of harmful or misinformation being displayed for your business.
Visibility Of Your Business In All of Your Servicing Areas
Google offers Business owners the ability to include all of their current Servicing Areas. If for example,
your business operates in several different locations, if you don’t let Google know this, you could be
missing out on those additional locations. So, once again it is very important that you get your Business

Google Business Reviews Are Important
The reputation for your business is everything! Helping customers fulfill their goals via your Services or
Products is ultimately what all Businesses come down too. Solving a problem for a customer & making their
lives easier is the goal. Business Reviews can help with the authority of your company. People rely heavily
on previous customer reviews when evaluation companies and determining if they are going to do business with
them. The sooner you can have your past clients review your business the better! Hopefully your customers
are pleased with the services or products you provided, and will be willing to give your business a solid
review. The more reviews you have, the better. This helps paint a clearer picture for your new potential
clients. We recommend to always urge the people you’re doing business with to evaluate their experience
they’ve had with you and give your company a review on Google. This alone will help your overall digital
media appearance immensely and it will allow your business to improve to enhance the overall customer
