Great experience with the Brannen's brothers in Elmsdale! We worked together to create a website that would get them noticed in Elmsdale.

The team at Tekkit Computers needed to update their website, social media, as well as have their marketing managed. We started by finding out the ideal keywords and clients for Tekkit. After a few conversations, we were able to pin down exactly what kind of approach to take to improving the Tekkit Computers brand online!
Tekkit Computers is only a 2 year old company, and they needed to rank quickly to compete with other local businesses that were established before it. Using a local blast for citations and some powerful social media management, we were able to create more authority for Tekkit and raise it quickly to compete with the rest.

Scotiasite Digital Marketing is a project created by a few Nova Scotians when they noticed a serious problem with many small business marketing systems. They spend money funneling potential leads towards websites that don't convert! There's no point in spending ad money on a landing page that won't sell, or sending clients to a website that won't convince them to buy their product. I helped build Scotiasite and work with them to teach new businesses about how a Great website, combined with a strong social media and digital marketing campaign, can lead to amazing results at much lower costs than traditional media.
