Tina Plett – Realtor

As a REALTOR, I understand how important it is to have a great website. More than 90% of the public begins their real estate search on the web. Not only are people shopping online, they also qualify agents through web search as well! Before I chose to work with ForceFive Media, I did some research. I was tired of the pedestrian look of the common real estate websites! Did you know that word press websites offer strong SEO?

The most significant impression to me was when I saw that each website ForceFive Media had designed, had its own look and features!  I was inspired by some of the designs. I was willing to pay for this quality of product! Ryan took the time to learn about my branding, my colours, and my personal preferences. The design team was able to translate that into a personal design that I was completely happy with. I was trained how to use the website.

Along the way, I have requested some changes and ForceFive Media has been prompt with their attention to serving me!

This month I had 1157 people visit my website of which were 49.4% unique visitors. I know this because they added google analytics so that I can measure results.

Do it right! Don’t be in a hurry! Take the time to make it your own. ForceFive creates a mobile friendly site. If you are not really sure what you are looking for, Ryan will draw it out of you. The first day I had my website on line, I posted a link on Facebook and as a result I got a $350k listing that SOLD! That more than PAID for my costs and confirmed to me that I had made an excellent choice. I highly recommend ForceFive Media for their product and their service!

Having seen many of the projects Ryan Grassie and his team have taken on in the past, I knew I could count on ForceFive Media to design and develop marketing materials for my business that are exceptional in terms of quality and professionalism. Taking into account my ideas and suggestions, the ForceFive team used their extensive knowledge, skills and creativity to produce an extremely sharp and professional looking logo, a well-designed informative website that catches the eye of anyone browsing it, an advertising postcard like no other I have seen, and a business card so slick that I feel like it alone could generate business for me. There is no doubt that I feel like my business has the best website in its industry. ForceFive’s service standards are excellent; I can always rely on very quick response times and I am always confident that any product I request from ForceFive will exceed my expectations.

Over the last 3 months since launching our new site, traffic has increased steadily and earlier reservations are creating a record year for us. Thank you Force Five for brilliant work! – www.soundsations.ca

Update: The team at Force Five Media have created a site for us that, after a year, continues to receive positive feedback and excellent online ranking. Ryan has taken excellent care of us; so glad we made the call..

“Ryan and his team at ForceFive not only updated my website beautifully but also trained me how to use the WordPress Admin so that I can make changes and add content as often as I wish without having to keep relying on someone else for every little thing.  I am not very computer savvy and Ryan explained things to me in a language I could understand.  I have already recommended them to other small business owners.”

Glenn Lucas, Owner – Property Tax Review Services

“We used ForceFive to take our existing website to the next level. They sat down with us and went through our existing site and told us what could be salvaged to save costs and what needed to be completely re-done. Their professional staff was extremely easy to work with and we found that their focus was always on how the website was going to help us make money instead of solely on the creative side of things. The traffic and more importantly leads have dramatically increased since our new website went live. We now use ForceFive on a weekly basis to help us with our online marketing strategy. We couldn’t be happier with the results.”

Brent White, Sales and Marketing Director – PrairieFyre Software

“We started out by sending out an RFP, then we short listed companies we thought could work with us, ForceFive Media stood out from the other vendors as they understood our pain points, met our budget requirements and our long term business plans, they totally got it and as a result was awarded our business! We needed to make significant changes from our previous website but not be disruptive to our clients. ForceFive was very receptive to our new website design ideas and offered other great ideas that allowed us to display the best graphic design that flows nicely, direct users to where we needed them to be and always keeping our brand in mind. We also found their staff very helpful and accommodating when we engaged them in creating interactive videos for us, they were always creative and easy to work with. More importantly the traffic and leads have dramatically increased since our new website went live and this is very impressive and speaks to their competence. We now use ForceFive on a monthly basis to help us with our search engine optimization and their recommended tweaks where necessary, we couldn’t be happier with the results.

It’s absolutely brilliant when you can work with a company like ForceFive who takes the time to understand your companies vision, is always there for you to bounce ideas off and is there every step of the way to help make you successful”

I discovered Force Five Media at a company seminar.  I was very intrigued by their current projects and the reasonably easy editing process for the websites being demonstrated.  I chatted with Ryan Grassie right after the seminar then immediately hired his company to update my very outdated and cumbersome website.  In no time at all, I had an absolutely terrific website, designed to my consistent branding. Ryan and his gang at Force Five took my “people concept” and incorporated it with my current look and created a professional website: Creating Smooth Transitions aka HomesByLana.  They readily accepted my suggestions and offered their advice to put everything together.  I can’t wait to share my new website with everyone.  I highly recommend Force Five Media to anyone who wants an outstanding and professional web presence.

Doug Adams, VP Marketing – Keystone Corporation

The ForceFive team is really unique – we’re thrilled to have found them. While creative, they’re still focussed on our buisness needs. They tell me what they’re going to deliver, I a skeptical… and then they exceed my expectations. If you are looking for a marketing partner that will also provide you with a website that delivers ROI, here’s the place to go.

Important Things to Include in Your Digital Marketing Strategy

In order to successfully promote and sell your products and services online, it’s important to have a strong digital marketing strategy. Here are a few things you should consider to optimize your website and business. 

Website

Part of a good digital marketing strategy is to direct potential customers to your website. It’s key to have a website that not only attracts customers, but also makes them want to stay. The design of a website has a huge impact on the user experience for your visitors. Making the navigation of the website simple and easy, providing clear content, and ensuring the speed of your site is as fast as possible are all things you will want to focus on.

Social Media

Social media marketing plays a key role in your overall digital marketing strategy. To put it simply, it is nothing more than the use of social media platforms to promote your business and the products and services you offer. By using social media platforms you gain more traffic and attract more of your targeted audience. One of the best parts about using social media to advance your digital marketing is that it is believed to be the most cost effective marketing tool to advertise, very time efficient, and appeals directly to people in a specific community.

SEO

Search engine optimization (SEO) can allow your website to rank higher than your competitors when being searched, which in turn can drive more traffic to your website and result in more business. SEO has evolved so much that many small businesses need SEO services as a full time job. To get the most out of your SEO you may want to think about who your target audience is and what they are searching for, as well as optimizing your website for mobile browsing.

Paid Advertising

If you have the budget, paid advertising can really help bring your digital marketing strategy to the next level. There are several kinds of paid advertising like pay-per-click, pay-per-impression, banner ads, and display ads. Efficient marketing campaigns capitalize on all channels for advertising, but depending on your budget you may want to start with the more inexpensive options like text ads on Google Adwords or Facebook. The end goal is to increase traffic to your business, so the more you can afford on paid advertising the better!
