As you know, online marketing is constantly evolving. Daily we receive lots of ideas but how can you keep up?
It is our job to guide you in the right direction. So we have selected a couple of articles we thought would be relevant and interesting to our clients and friends. The topics will vary monthly, but they are all intended to help you build your business.
This month we spotted great articles on better use of video, how Google deals with Review Sites, and a good list of tips on Social Media.
If you want to learn more about any of these topics and even them try them out, please call me. If you want to learn about other topics, let me know! We’ll share.
Arborwell.com, California’s favorite ISA certified arborist and tree care company launched their new mobile website. Consisting of a custom design with a unique layout for easy navigation and clear imagery and information, customers will find lots of tree care information and seasonal tips now on their mobile devices.
One of our long time clients, World Golf Tour, (WGT) received a great spread in the most recent issue of Forbes magazine. Since starting with an idea for an interactive online golf game, WGT has expanded and created lifelike representations of some of the world’s great golf courses including St. Andrews, Kiawah, Congressional and more. If you like to spend a little time on the golf course but can’t find the time, or you like online golf games that challenge your sports skills, sign up! It is free, and there are tournaments and challenges all the time!
“WGT has the number one online golf game and golf website in the world, with more than 5 million registered users and 2.5 million unique monthly visitors (more than Golf.com and PGA.com).”
“The idea of taking on EA Sports and its bestselling title was nuts, but Nelson figured there was an opportunity if he
did something completely different.”
“WGT’s golf-game success is in large part the result of its painstaking attention to the look and feel of each course. Sun
dapples the fairways, and wind rustles the trees in each of the 15 courses it has captured so far.”
“The process of turning 18 holes into an immersive digital experience begins by shooting up to 300,000 photos with
high-definition and laser cameras, on land and from a helicopter and plane, each picture attached to an exact location using GPS. Imaging can take two to three weeks and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per course.”
“By offering the best visuals from day one and releasing the game as a free-to-play online experience, WGT avoids
Electronic Arts’ annual ritual of updating the game’s software engine, revisiting each course to improve the visuals and charging another $60 to gamers.
“WGT Baseball: MLB, their Facebook game produced in partnership with Major League Baseball, attracted more than 300,000 monthly active users and 1 million-plus registered players in its first four months.”
“In the future we’ll have all major sports covered with Internet and mobile titles and a strong Web presence for
each.” – YuChiang Cheng, founder and CEO, WGT
“WGT is really the only thing going now.” – Michael Pachter, videogame analyst, Wedbush Morgan Securities
Congratulations to YuChiang and the entire team at WGT!
