April 21, 2015 Google makes changes in the search algorithm to have more mobile ready websites in search results.  This change will affect all searches.  If you have not updated your website to be mobile friendly (or responsive), its time to call Automated Contacts.

In November we posted an article  “Is your website responsive?”.  Here you can find information on Google’s recommended ways to display a mobile ready website.

We can get started on either making your website mobile friendly or a redesign and change over to the most popular CMS (content management system) WordPress.  We have already converted one of our client sites, http://villassacbe.com

press release metrics

Press Release Metrics that matter

Press releases. PR is still a mystery to many.  How some make it onto TechCrunch and others with equally great products or stories remain unknown. Say the words “PR Metrics” and you’ll get an even more quizzical face in response.

Some question the value of PR for their business and well, PR metrics are what demonstrate the need and the effectiveness for tactics such as earned media, influencer relations, content marketing and good old fashioned press mentions. We’re firm believers in the power of PR to make big things happen – no matter how small the company or the size of the budget.

Our design team – website and logos!

Need to give a shout out to our design department.  They have put together yet another great logo for a client, yes I said logo.  When we get a request to update a client website, it starts with the logo.  Does your logo need updating?  Look at it, does it still resemble todays market.  Is it high quality and looks well on everything printed and electronic?  We are finding more and more customers don’t have the original high quality graphic or made their logo themselves which may look dated.  Well, we can help you.  Our design team can either re-create the logo you have, upgrade/modernize it or develop a whole new design/brand.

Our process is simple.  We ask a few questions on the design you are looking for and in turn offer a number of choices that fit your description.  We go back and forth with your specific requests until you are 100% happy.
