15 Years of Web Design and 1,000 Clients Later

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Adventure Web Productions (AWP) has great news to share! We have reached another major milestone as a full service Internet development and web marketing company. What milestone have we reached? Read now to find out.

In the last 15 years, AWP has more than tripled in size, bringing together excellence in programming and design. We now have 1,000 clients that range in size, from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.

But how did AWP gain the success we have today? The answer is that we have been blessed with great people and great employees.

The employees that have came in the past 15 years have helped build up a positive, energizing, productive and fun work culture.

The work culture here at AWP is work hard; play hard. We do not leave any stone unturned and this creates value for both our business and the businesses of our clients.

One thing that really distinguishes us from our competitors is that our clients are more than just clients – they are our partners.

We have seen the Internet evolve and we have learnt to adapt to these evolutions. AWP has adapted by offering products and services that have helped our clients, our partners grow with the Internet.

When interviewing Charlie Strouse, Vice President of AWP, we asked him where he and Craig Kahl, President of AWP, would like to accomplish in the future development of AWP.

Strouse stated they would like to put more people in place here at AWP and grow the company. They want to put all efforts to be the best full service Internet development and web marketing company they can be to their clients.

We also asked Strouse if he had any business advice to share about creating and maintaining a successful business. He told us the following advice:

“If you want to be successful in your business, you have to love your business. You have to love the way you run it, market it and grow it. Without that passion, nothing you do is going to bring amazing results. Love what you do. Surround yourself with great people. Create value for your clients.”

At AWP, we stand ready to help you fully unlock the full potential of the Internet. If you’re not successful, neither are we. We offer award-winning Web Development and services as mentioned in The Wall Street Journal, Baltimore Business Journal, The Daily Record, The Washington Times, CNBC, Merchant Circle, and other local and national news media.

How Creating A Mobile Version Of Your Website Can Benefit Your Business

Friday, April 20th, 2012

More and more consumers are reviewing business products and services through Internet searches on their mobile devices – from mobile phones to iPads.

When consumers look up your business and services online, you do not want them to go to a business competitor to serve their needs all because your website was not readable from their mobile devices.

There is a solution. You can create a mobile version of your business website to successfully gain business leads from consumers surfing the Internet through their mobile devices.

This article will tell you how to use a mobile website to benefit your business. Start reading to learn about the benefits a business mobile website can provide to you.

The Benefits of A Business Mobile Website

When your business website is transformed into a mobile website, your business can be easily discovered when people search products and services on their mobile devices. This is called mobile website optimization. The transformation automatically gives you more visitors to your site that you can convert into live customers because you have a mobile version of your website.

When business websites are not mobile optimized, not only do they look terrible being viewed from a mobile device but also the standard Internet search will not allow consumers to find what they are looking to find. In other words, searches will be put off and consumers will click away from your site to find what they believe are better sources for needs and wants.

Revolutionize your business marketing today with a business website created by Adventure Web Productions. We will help you deliver your content to prospective consumers the right way and engage mobile users.

Whitespace Is Here To Stay

Google+ now has a left side bar to give you more whitespace for larger monitors. The whitespace gives your business profile on Google+ a cleaner look, while giving your brand a profile photo and cover image display.

Visuals Bring Followers

Since the arrival of the cover photo to Google+, your profile page cover photo gives you space to get creative with your company’s brand. Google+ also allows you to add photo albums to your company events and products to make your business profile more personable. Make sure your images are not blurry or distorted to offer the best first impression to Google+ users.

Navigation Tabs Make Google+ Easier

Now on Google+ you no longer have to search for tabs to go from one page to the next. They are all placed on the left hand side of your page. There are seven main headings:

-Home

-Profile

-Pages

-Explore

-Photos

-Circles

Trends Are Here

If you are a user of the social media network Twitter, you are use to seeing trends within the network. Google+ has now added a display of popular trends on its network as well.

4 Ways To Make Your Facebook Fanpage Timeline More Engaging For Fans

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

The new Facebook timeline is here to stay. This is the perfect time for you to make your Facebook fanpage more engaging. We are here to help you out with four tips that will make you not only gain loyal Facebook fans but bring leads to your business’ products and services. Become more engaging now.

Facebook has upgraded the Facebook fanpage timeline to help you increase your business focus on delivering valuable content, becoming more interactive with fans and give your fans reason to come back to your fanpage and purchase products and services from your business.

Measure Your Performance

When you are being social on your social media networks, you need to be SMART. SMART stands for keeping your goals specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time based. When you focus your goals to follow SMART you can monitor your progress and correct errors in strategy in a better way.

Communicate In A Creative Manner Not Just A Corporate Voice

Brands on Facebook often forget that fans want to see real people they can relate to behind the brands. When you have conversational interactions with your fans, you attract their attention with creativity and not with your formal, corporate voice. It’s okay to express personality.

Become A Trusted Source

Often when fans like the content they see on Facebook, they will bookmark and checkout the webpages of the brands they follow. You want to be a regular source for your fans to catch up on news and updates in your industry.  When you are a source, fans are also more likely to start conversations about news and updates on your page. Being a source could help you gain customer feedback that help you improve your products and services to remain competitive in your industry. For example, polls on Facebook about your products and services can help you gain beneficial customer feedback.

Stay Relevant

When you cover topics people are interested in learning or staying informed about, your content and posts will continue to increase in engagement. For example, start a hot topic discussion on your Facebook fanpage . Your first post should be on topic and relevant. When you start to see the likes and comments, write a second message 30 minutes apart. The second message should be related to the topic. To pull this successfully, you have to understand your customers.

To improve your business’ Facebook fanpage engagement and bring leads to your business products and services, hire Adventure Web Productions to manage your social media.
