Agency Engagement

Many people when I introduce myself ask how to engage with creative agency and what are the benefits of working with a agency vs. individual freelancer. The project widely defer and there is no single answer. In some scenarios company needs nothing more then single freelance artist, where in majority of the cases projects are complex and require whole team of people with a different focuses and expertise to achieve an optimal results. In my practice what starts as simple website redesign, it ends up being complete brand refresh, product optimization, brand positioning and digital strategies and often refreshing print collateral. Additionally there are many different agencies other and everyone should find its own fit and comfort level. Some agencies focus exclusively on the creative work, others are specialized in ads placement and strategies, some specialize exclusively on digital and web work.

There is a myriad of ways to reach out to your customers and target market while also standing out from the competition. If you started a branding campaign, it’s likely you haven’t even reached the surface as to what you can do. Here are some brand strategies that some companies are using with great success. 1.

New TLD Registration Problems

Recently I tried registering some domain names with a number of new gTLDs and encounter some of the very annoying and rather disappointing experiences that, in consumer mind can encourage concern of ethics and practices these Registry companies are running. But most importantly I think it will effect long term adoption of these new TLDs. These encounters I experienced and documented with couple different domain name registration service providers and couple different TLD Registries that are owned by different holding groups. I’ll try avoiding mentioning the names at this point as I believe that would be irrelevant to the point I’m trying to make here. The domain name that appears to be available, by looking at the Who Is registry and that have never been registered before, returned back couple minutes after my initial attempt with a message such as: This name is reserved by the Registry in accordance with…

Why Magento?

Magento is an open-source platform and community version can be installed without any commitments or monthly fees. To match project requirements, we can modify the source code and add features and functionality by adding widely available and rather inexpensive add-ons and plug-ins.

How to Properly Market a Company on a Website

So you have a professionally designed website, but do you know how to properly market your company? For many companies, the focus is on creating a functioning website and writing about their products/services or even the history of the company. While your goal should indeed be to get the word out about your products/services and your brand, the approach has to be focused from the user’s perspective. You have to start by creating a web design that is relevant to the user and communicates some kind of value. For instance, if you’re selling gardening supplies, the website’s color and design theme should reflect that the user is in the right place. At the same time, you want your brand to come out in the web design and convey a unique benefit of purchasing from your company. The brand usually has its own color and design themes and if it doesn’t…
