Facebook held a three-day Community Boost event in Downtown Buffalo July 9-11 and 360 PSG was there on the scene to soak up all the information. For those who don’t know, Facebook (and Instagram) have been touring the country hosting Community Boost events to train business owners on Facebook and Instagram marketing features. Not only do these events help train marketers of all skill levels, they share the direction both platforms are headed and the type of content and advertising that will flourish on each.

We’ve made it to summer 2018! Our team has been busy launching, posting, writing, designing, supporting and managing numerous projects this season. It’s nice to take a step back and revisit the great client work and successes we’ve brought to the web. While website launches are only a portion of what we do over at 360 PSG, we put a lot of time and creativity into each project. Here are five of our top web projects from spring ‘18.

Since the first American television advertisement aired in 1941, there has been a flood of ads on every channel possible. Radio, TV, print and film have all been the ideal mediums for advertisers to market their products or services to the masses since it all began almost 75 years ago. Luckily for us, technology has advanced enough to bring about the dawn of a new area -- digital marketing.

Is it a story of David and Goliath? Probably not, because Facebook owns Instagram and can’t really lose to it if there is a mutual benefit. You can even integrate your Facebook marketing with Instagram simultaneously with Ads Manager. But, what if you want to focus on one platform?

One of the most overlooked aspects of optimizing a website is the user experience. It can be difficult to gauge purely from the appearance and content of a site alone how users will interact with it. An experienced digital marketer will know that the way people interact with a website is just as important as how they find it.

It was a full house at 360 PSG this week for our Content Architecture, Modern Design Trends & Usability Workshop. Focusing on the importance of content and design in today’s digital world, our Dr. of Creative and Dr. of Operations, Jessa and Dan, presented what they believe a website needs in order to perform.

It doesn’t seem like winter is over in Western New York, but it is; and with that, it’s time to reflect and choose five of our favorite projects from the season.

Organic search engine rankings are not the only way to gain exposure and drive traffic to your website. There are numerous online paid advertising networks available to use across various websites. However, only two platforms, Google AdWords and Bing Ads, offer direct integration with the most popular search engines in the world using a pay-per-click (PPC) advertising scheme.

If Facebook’s new algorithm update has you feeling like the last kid picked in gym class, you aren’t alone. When the social giant announced in January that it was putting a strong focus on personal pages (and much, much less on Business Pages), the professional social world dramatically rumbled. Not only had organic reach declined to almost 2% throughout recent years, Facebook declared that it’s practically non-existent moving forward. What does this mean for companies with a Business Page?

Trends come and go, but your website doesn’t. A website is a representation of your brand, what you offer and what you’re capable of. When executed properly, a strong website will generate interest, inquiries, leads -- all things a business strives for in the digital world. What happens when your website hasn’t been updated?

A company blog hosted on your website is a great content strategy to improve search visibility, enhance branding and even generate leads. Is the effort to create engaging, relevant blogs worth it for business owners who simply don’t have the time or resources to produce it?

Whether it’s tracking audience behavior or measuring the conversion path, digital marketers constantly reference data to make new decisions for their websites. Tools such as Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and Bing Webmaster Tools present this real-time data in useful ways and are constantly being updated with new features.

It might be freezing outside, but our team at 360 PSG is ready to start some great projects coming up in the new year. But first, let’s dial it back to the five top web projects we selected from fall.

As we enter 2018, Facebook will continue evolving to include new features and change the way marketers use the platform as a whole. What does this mean for small businesses who want to advertise on the world’s largest social network, but don’t have the budget to keep up with heavy weight advertisers?

In today's world of mass digital media, giving a referral is as simple as posting a social media link. At 360 PSG, we know that 90% of your prospective customers make buying decisions based on reviews and online mentions of your business.

Any carpenter knows that a good set of tools is essential for their work. A digital marketer is no different. If you want to succeed on the web, you must become familiar with the necessary tools in order to achieve your marketing objectives.

It’s no secret that the world of digital marketing is a constantly changing landscape. Occasionally, things can change so rapidly that not everyone can stay current on the best practices. This becomes a problem when it comes to search engine optimization.
