Marketing for the Modern Restaurant

One of the challenges of running a restaurant is getting first-time diners through the door. Once they’re in, it’s easy to seduce them with impeccable service, distinctive menu offerings, and delicious flavors.

Responsive Design: How SEO and RWD Can Boost Your Business, Fast

Search engine optimization (SEO) is on the tip of everyone’s tongue – and rightly so. This effective strategy for driving traffic to a specific website relies on using written content that’s heavy on specific phrases. For example, if you’re in the business of selling roof repair products, your SEO content should use the words “roof,” “roofing” and “roof-repair products” in excess. Search engines, like Google, will reward your hard work by presenting your search-engine optimized website at the top of the search results list.

Tip of the Week

Take the Time to Wireframe

Wireframes are like blueprints for your site design. They outline the structure of a webpage and how its functionality will be represented in design without using any actual text or images. Often, after a great discovery meeting discussing your website design needs, you may feel like a wireframe is an unnecessary extra step that's going to push out when you get to see the real design. Don't underestimate the value of the wireframe for helping to get your site design right the first time.
