One of Cavera Studios' longest clients, the Ontario Finnish Resthome of Sault Ste Marie, has been in the process of expanding the retirement home to include a fully independent living structure. To support this new building and site development, a capital campaign was launched that is aiming to raise $3 million to help support the cost of the entire project. The tagline for this campaign titled "Uusi Koti - A New Home" was chosen as a motivational stance that everyone has a senior in their lives that requires, or will require, secure and affordable retirement living.
We were contacted in regards to developing a website that would be simple enough to quickly navigate and promote donations, but would also contain all project information and convey the community based message. We opted to use an attractive, section based, 1 page design that wouldn't involve clicking from page to page to find information. It was important that the design catered to an older, less tech saavy audience but still delivered an esthetically pleasing layout.
Check out the Uusi Koti Campaign website and help them reach their $3 million dollar goal, every little bit counts.[...]
Social Media Marketing, or SMM for short, has become an enormous part of marketing campaigns across the globe. And why wouldn't it?! With an astounding 1.5 billion combined users(ExpandedRamblings.com) signed up for Facebook, Twitter and Google +, it's no wonder this tool has seen exponential growth in advertisement and marketing campaigns year after year. Social media, in effect, brings the world together. One platform across mutiple languages, countries and continents, and best of all it's completely FREE (to sign up for an account, of course). So with this much reach, the ability to target desired markets and users based on their lifestyle choices and information presented within their profiles, how do advertisement campaigns and promotions fail? How can they?!
As a new real estate agent in the Sault Ste Marie area, Rachelle identified the need to separate herself from other real estate agents by taking a modern approach to marketing herself. Unimpressed with some of the current real estate website options available, she realized that a professional custom design was what she needed. Over the 4 week project, Cavera Studios worked directly with Rachelle to ensure that all of her requests were met.
Rachelle's website was designed to be simple yet informative and accessible by any and all visitors. The final product is mobile responsive, which is a modern web development technique designed to alter the way a website looks based on the visitor's screen size and device, meaning whether it's being seen from a personal computer or mobile device it still looks great. Rachelle required a full blog and real estate listing system that she will keep up to date by adding her listings and writing news articles based on real estate tips, market trends and more.
If you're in the market for a new home, check out Rachelle's website, blog and sign up for her newsletter to get informed! Check out Cavera's latest design: Rachelle Harnden Realtor.[...]

When launching any marketing or advertising campaign the key component to success is appropriately targeting a demographic. How to reach those consumers on as many mediums as possible. Your online campaign is not different and, if it isn't already, it should be, a major part of the overall strategy. What differs from traditional methods of marketing such as snail mail, television, radio, etc. is that by reaching out online we are at the mercy of the end-user's computer system. Different internet browsers, operating systems (Windows, Mac OS, etc.) and even screen size. All of these attributes are completely variable.
While the latest techniques and guidelines, if executed properly, will establish consistency across all platforms, it still is not perfect.
But are we not forgetting something? Morgan Stanley Research has estimated that at the current rate, by 2014 more users will be accessing the Internet via mobile device than a traditional desktop or laptop computer; albeit, they are still statistically close. What this means is now we must consider how these millions of users will view webpages from their much smaller screens.
In comes responsive design. Mastering the latest techniques in responsive design allows for a dynamic website build that will respond to the user's screen size and browser. This allows the same webpage to be viewed at varying sizes without breaking, bloated load times for websites optimized for desktop viewing, and cross-platform compatibility.
When targeting your demographic online, it's important to encompass all possible mediums. Find out how Cavera Studios is mastering the latest techniques in Responsive design to bring the best service and ROI to our clients. Contact us today![...]

With the "invite-only" release of Google+ no more than a few weeks ago, consumers are curious to see how Google plans to compete with the social media giants Facebook and Twitter. Google+ is more of a competitor to Facebook as it entitles users to add each other to their "Circles" allowing a simpler organization of friends. On a consumer basis, Google+ maintains a solid base because like all of their amazing products, everything seamlessly integrates. Photo albums using Picasa, email from GMail, etc.
But the burning question remains how this will affect businesses, marketing execution and SEO. Google has solidified its place in Internet super-stardom by being the #1 search engine colossus. Its company title itself has become a verb in most conversations ("Don't know the answer? Google it!"). With the explosion of Facebook popularity, online marketers realize its potential to reach out to targeted groups of users. Google+, while still in early beta stages, has an immense advantage over Facebook in the merchant basis. Tried searching Google lately? Top search results can yield a Google+ profile, as long as Google finds it relevant to your search terms. But there it is; right at the top.
Google+ also takes advantage of the similar "Like" feature that Facebook users have grown accustomed to. On every comment, post, photo or action within Google's social network you will be presented with the "+1" button allowing you to bump the topic to your profile, showing your support. Why is this any different than Facebook's Like feature? The +1 button appears right within Google searches allowing Google+ users to quickly and easily share websites to their profiles.
Google+ is still in beta stages, but I suggest that you attempt to get an invite and get used to the interface because as a business this
may, WILL be the next big tool in your online marketing arsenal.
