What We Do

The web gives consumers the opportunity to find answers to their questions, solutions to their problems, and products for their needs. Businesses that don't provide trustworthy options to these consumers will instantly be ignored. We will help your business turn visitors into buyers. We build strategies after spending long hours learning the ins and outs of your business. We craft ideas and design messages while posing as uneducated, potential customers. We execute our strategies using the latest technology and usability trends. We help drive and analyze site traffic, and provide insight and ideas to increase visits. We engage consumers by creating interactive tools that help them make purchasing decisions. We create web applications to streamline and organize your sales operations. And, we help you measure the success of our efforts.

    To bring this discussion down to a local level, I think — for the most part — local businesses have a good handle on t…

    Unmeasured Metric: Presence Quality

    I am often asked why a website’s bounce rate has increased or why the amount of time users spend on a website has decreased. “Is it because our online advertising efforts are attracting too many misguided visitors?” It is possible. But first, you need to analyze your site from the consumer’s point of view.

    Let’s pretend your website is a physical storefront. Pretend you’re spending a lot of money on traditional advertising and are seeing a great increase in foot traffic. Now look around your store – remember we’re playing pretend here. If your store is messy, people will leave. If…

    Launch Party for Slydog Skis

    The fellas at Slydog came to us with a few problems that needed solutions. First, they mold over nine thousand different color and style combinations of snowmobile skis. Second, they only had pictures of a few of these several thousand skis. And third, their customers want to buy these custom skis but have no way of seeing what they’re buying. After about a month of meetings, discussions, brainstorm sessions and research, we devised a plan and began execution. We’re excited to finally show it off the result of all our work. So without further explanation, try building a ski of your own!
