Consulting Services

As new media content producers, we’re in the trenches of this dynamically changing landscape each and every day. In addition to creating the world’s first podcast channel in 2006, we also published the first social media-driven cookbook. And we’ve been doing that Twitter thing since 2007, when it was just us geeks.

Our commitment to leveraging the power of digital media also extends to the industry at large, and as members of the Advertising Standards Committee for the Association for Downloadable Media, we helped to craft new standards that will help to solidify the medium as a tangible source for content producers and advertisers alike.

We have assisted our clients in launching premium brands with the development of web sites and online multimedia, and led large companies with a traditional media mix to achieve significant cost savings and reach through the use of new media advertising.

New & Social Media Consulting

With the wave of developments rapidly defining (and redefining) the digital realm, there are lots of “social media experts” popping up on the radar. We invite you to choose carefully, as social media is useful, but it is part of the larger marketing mix.

In consulting with our clients, we first approach objectives from the big picture, then see where new and social media can best be put to use as tools to achieve those goals.

Blog & Web Site Design

If you aren’t on the web, you’re invisible, whether you have a small business or an award-winning restaurant. You probably know that already.

We want to make it wasy for you to establish yourself on the web and communicate your message, whether it’s through your web site, blog, Twitter, Facebook or any number of tools being used every day by your target consumers. All of that might seem daunting at first, but the good news is that platforms like WordPress are crafted with tools to help you master all of these media outlets pretty quickly.

Whether your site just needs a slight makeover or needs to be built from scratch, we’ve created a range of prices for sites and blogs ranging from low-cost to highly customized designs, all of which come with a tutorial so you can maintain the site with ease after it goes live. Please contact us for details.

Audio & Video Production
