What Can We do for You?

Posted by on Aug 12, 2013

Here’s the question on everyone’s mind:  How is a nice looking website or a social media account or two going to better my business or non-profit organization? Well, here is your answer.   It will get prospective customer’s eyes on YOUR business! The internet is where people go to find a product or service, and if you can’t be found on the internet, what’s the point of the website you have? It is not doing you any good.   We want to give you not only a website that can be found, but one worth finding! We specialize in search engine optimization strategies that can bring your business or organization’s page up first on Google.  A person wouldn’t necessarily have to type in your business’s name , for example, “Southeast Grocery”, they could simply type in something like “Beaverton Grocery Stores” and there is the link to the fabulous Southeast Grocery website first on the list!

Pinterest for Business

Posted by on Aug 9, 2013

Individual businesses benefit from different social media networks in different ways. For example, Twitter might not be as effective for a retail company as Pinterest would be, or vice-versa. It’s important to know your audience, and know where their eyes are when thinking about your online presence. When you’re trying to figure out which network is best for your business, it’s useful to know about the benefits that each network can have for you. Though Pinterest gained popularity about three years ago, many people still don’t understand the uses and benefits of it, especially when it comes to using Pinterest for business.     Pinterest is an image-based network that has been growing rapidly. Those who used Pinterest in its early days in 2010 would remember that the network was by invitation only, meaning an existing Pinterest user had to extend an invitation to another person before that person could set up an account. With the growth Pinterest has seen, it is now open to anybody and everybody, businesses included, and has become a very effective social media marketing tool.   Pinterest is modeled to resemble an online bulletin board. Users search through “pins” and pin the ones they like to their boards. A “pin” is an image of...

Why Hire a Web Design Agency?

Posted by on Aug 1, 2013

In today’s internet savvy world,  it’s hard to say that most businesses aren’t aware of the importance of having a web presence. We see many big corporations who have their foot in the door in just about very social network available, but what about the small businesses?   It’s no secret to them that an online presence has become somewhat of a necessity, but if you aren’t keeping up with what’s going on in the online world, it’s almost impossible to keep your head above water.   According to simplybusiness.com, not to mention the opinion of just about every other source out there, the connectivity to customers that social media networks and a solid website can give your business is a “vital part of the marketing strategy” (simplybusiness.com). As a small business owner, if you’re not aware of the commitment that it takes to keep up with your social networks and business site, the lack of content featured on your networks could reflect poorly on your business.   This is why outsourcing your digital marketing needs to an agency has become so important and popular. At Div Creative, we take a custom approach to each business we work with, tailoring the web design and social media work to the...
