Architechniques, Ltd. Began working with Splattered Ink in 2007 to develop a new website and marketing program. The new website they developed is excellent and the marketing program has helped us focus our message to potential clients. Since that time, Splattered
What does your website look like on a mobile device? Does your site adapt to fit smaller screens more naturally or does the whole site just shrink? Or worse, does only a portion of your site show? If your site adapts, Congratulations! You're ahead of the curve! However, if your site looks like a postage stamp or it's awkwardly cropped, it's time to go mobile. You simply can't wait any longer. Mobile devices are invading internet browsing at such an alarming rate that most sources estimate that by 2014 mobile Internet browsing will exceed desktop browsing.
The Strategy & Discipline of Content Marketing
Planning your strategy has its challenges
Strategy is one of the key words in this concept. It's important to think through what content you're going to be posting to your website. Are you event focused, news focused, or maybe you want to use your website to teach and inform? What you already do in your business should hold the answer here. All you have to do is briefly map out what you're going to write about.
Implementation is hard for most small businenss people
I've had success planning a content strategy, both for Splattered Ink and a few clients. For Splattered Ink, the challenge then becomes implementation. Other projects and responsibilities always press their way toward the top of my to-do list.
Sounds easy enough. As the Internet grows and continues to mature, content marketing gains more importance. I plan to write more about content marketing later, but for now, you can think of it like blogging. The key is that you add new, relevant content to your site on a regular basis.
But, I've found over the years that it can really be a challenge to develop the discipline of writing. I'm not sure why it's so hard for me to do this consistently, but over the next few months I'm going to explore some techniques to help overcome my hang-ups and share them with you.
Develop my own responsive, content centered website
I've been touting responsive design and adding mobile to your online presence for a while now. It only seems appropriate that I get splatteredink.com up to date. I want the new design to focus more on content.
I highly recommend Splattered Ink to anyone looking for a design company that values professionalism, understanding the clients’ needs, consistent follow through, and a stand out from the rest result. I have worked with Darryl Jones and the Splattered Ink team since my first week at the Carbondale Chamber of Commerce. Darryl contacted me immediately to introduce himself and take care of my business cards for me. Talk about customer service at its finest! Darryl created the current Chamber logo and launched the new Chamber website for us in October. The plethora of compliments we have received speak miles of the quality work Darryl and his team will provide.
