7 Steps to Producing Outstanding Ad Copy

By Dylan Lee
, Marketing Director

Ad copy is the written word in all advertising communications. It’s easy to understand then, why writing great ad copy is important in persuading the advertisement’s audience to buy a product, or to influence their beliefs. Without compelling copy, advertisements will fail to generate the sales, engagement, or excitement that it needs to in order to be successful and increase your advertising return on investment (ROI).


Color Psychology in Web Design (Infographic)

By Dylan Lee
, Marketing Director

The use of color in web design and design in general is paramount to evoking emotions and feelings about your product/brand that work on subconscious levels to influence behaviors of your audience. The mind reacts to different colors and color combinations in a myriad of ways, but there are common associations that the mind makes with certain colors.


What Do Buzzwords Mean to Us?

By Dylan Lee
, Marketing Director

According to Merriam-Webster, a buzzword is defined as, “an important-sounding, usually-technical word or phrase often of little meaning used chiefly to impress laymen.” This really captures the essence of it. Buzzwords are words that we see a lot in marketing and on the web, and while words like “synergy,” “authenticity,” and “dynamics” are quite frequently over/misused in many cases, some buzzwords can help us find great content that’s actually useful and engaging to us.


Basic Web Design Principles for Business Owners

By Dylan Lee
, Marketing Director

You’ve decided that your business needs a website or updates to the current one. It is important that you keep these principles in mind when going through the process of website creation because it is easy to get lost in all of the functionalities and fantastic ideas that can come up in the design process. What you’ll end up with, more often than not, is something that misses the point. Websites are meant to be useful and informative to the customer, and if they’re not, it won’t matter how pretty your website looks, your business won’t get the conversions/sales it needs. Great web design for business uses as little ‘design’ as possible to deliver information to the customer and get them engaged with your company brand/product/service.
