Getting it Right the First Time

I received an e-mail recently entitled, “Cutting Costs In Tough Economic Times is a Reality.” The title struck me – it really got me thinking about how IWD stands apart from the competition.

A number of IWD’s clients come to us because they are looking to redesign their websites to utilize SEO and social media strategies. So how does this tie into cutting costs? Simply stated, if their sites had been designed and optimized correctly the first time, our clients would not have to allocate additional funds for a re-design.

At IWD, our team of professional designers, copywriters, programmers and optimization specialists gets it right the first time.

Unlike many of our competitors, we know a strong website is more than a pretty homepage – we deliver websites that are marketing tools designed and optimized to drive sales, support growth and to position our clients above the competition.

But don’t just take my word for it – click here to read what our clients have to say.

Making Time for Marketing

“I just don’t have time for social media.”

This sentiment seemed to be a common topic of discussion at our first “Infinite Mind Share” event a few weeks ago.

As a small business owner, I was just as guilty of letting my own marketing tasks fall to the bottom of the “to-do” list – until I began to reap the new business rewards of putting a simple marketing plan into play.

Over the past few months, I have re-designed IWD’s website which utilizes the latest in SEO technologies and social media. I am the co-organizer of Fairfield County’s “Infinite Mind Share” – a networking “Tweetup” group for everyone interested in all things social media. I am updating this blog on a regular basis and using Facebook and Twitter to touch base with my clients – and prospective clients – in a casual, yet informative, way.

As I have learned first-hand, making time for marketing makes for new business.

Contact us today to learn how IWD can help you make time for marketing, and be sure to make time to talk with us at our next “Infinite Mind Share” event – March 30th, 6pm-8pm at the smart center in Fairfield.
