Worlds collided on Sunday as 12-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift cheered on two-time Super Bowl champion tight end Travis Kelce at the Chiefs game, where he made seven catches and scored a touchdown in their 41-10 victory over the Bears. Now, the internet is divided over the unlikely pair, who are rumored to be dating, and it has both the Swifties and football fans wondering if sparks are really flying between the two.
Naturally, Bowe Digital is more worried about what this budding relationship means for their prospective brands.
Taylor is notorious for her chart-topping breakup and love songs inspired by her star-studded list of exes. While her songs are wildly popular, it’s the marketing tactics behind them that sell out concert stadiums and create buzz on social media.
Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour generated 5 billion dollars in revenue using six main tactics we can all learn from. They offered exclusive items only available for purchase at the concert, followed organic community trends – cue the friendship bracelets (this will be important later!), listened to fans – adding more tour dates due to high demand, left hints on Taylor Swift’s website and social media, leaned into Taylor-themed side events and spread out the love on social, featuring things like ‘Get Ready With Me’ videos on TikTok, Stories during the concert and Instagram photo carousels days after.
Taylor and her team also recognize the value of repurposing successful content. Knowing how much her fans loved the album Sparks Fly, she wrote Sparks Fly (Taylor’s Version). Likewise, following the success of her tour, her team repurposed it into a movie experience.
Travis Kelce has been in the NFL for 11 years. In 2016, he scored a role on his dating show called Catching Kelce, but it wasn’t until the 2023 Super Bowl, where he faced off against his older brother Jason Kelce and won, that he started to gain the attention of people everywhere. Following his Super Bowl win, Travis was invited to host SNL, has starred in commercials, tried his hand at some modeling and most notably, started a podcast with his brother called New Heights with Travis and Jason Kelce. The football player capitalized on his newfound fame to build a lasting brand and now has the #1 most popular sports podcast on Spotify.
In Their (Chiefs) Red Era
So, how are Taylor and Travis helping each other score? First, let’s talk about how the two got together. A long-time fan, Travis attended one of Taylor’s concerts during her Eras Tour and brought a friendship bracelet with his number on it, proving just how good of a marketing tactic it was (we told you this would be important). Sadly, he didn’t get the chance to give it to her, but he shot his shot again and scored her attendance at the Sunday night game.
Taylor and Travis are the best at what they do in their perspective fields, but little overlap exists. Their relationship exposes them to new audiences, with Taylor making her ESPN debut and Travis being discovered by Swifties everywhere. However, it does seem like Travis and the Chiefs got the better side of the deal. “Since Sunday’s Chiefs-Bears game, there’s been a 400% spike in Travis Kelce jersey sales, Kelce’s podcast ranks #1 overall on Apple, Kelce adds 383K Instagram followers, 24.3M viewers watched the game, 3x increase in ‘Chiefs’ searches on the web, 3x increase in Chiefs’ sales on Stubhub and Chiefs sold more tickets in a single day since the start of the season,” according to this Instagram post from Front Office Sports.
Whether this means we’ll see more football jerseys at the next Taylor Swift concert or sparkly outfits at the Chiefs game, we’re here for it. All we can hope for is more touchdowns, new songs and great marketing. Like Taylor and Travis, give people something to talk about by working with Bowe Digital.

You’ve done the back-to-school shopping with your kiddos, teachers have shared their Amazon wishlists and set up their classrooms, and now it’s time to focus on you. However, just like the kids have ditched cursive writing for learning on laptops, you’ve traded in long commutes for remote work. Bowe Digital can help you become a remote-work pro, but today, we’re taking a page out of our teachers’ book.
Teachers, we salute you! Not only for educating our little ones but also for taking them off our hands for a while. We admire your organizational skills, patience and knack for making your classrooms both functional and inspirational.
While some of us may want to leave sharing Amazon wishlists to the teachers (they deserve it), these Amazon finds will help you revamp your home office space.
The Remote Worker’s Ultimate Amazon Wishlist:
Since you’re likely spending most of your workdays in it, a comfortable chair is non-negotiable. You can level up your existing chair with lumbar support pads and seat cushions like this CloudBliss seat cushion, or you can sit criss-cross applesauce like the kids with options like this aesthetic chair and this ergonomic one.
For the days you don't want to get out of bed, leave the couch or the pool lounger, portable desk stands like this LapGear Lap Desk can make it easier to work from wherever you want.
When the bus pulls up at the end of the day and the front door swings open, you can stay in the zone and block out the chaos (whether your work day is over or not - we won’t tell) with noise-canceling headphones. Try this budget-friendly option from JBL, or splurge on these Sony headphones.
In case working from home wasn’t hard enough, some people are adding walking from home to their resumes, too. Walking pads, or portable treadmills, have become a trend among remote workers on TikTok. You, too, can get your steps in while you work by purchasing a walking pad like this one. Of course, having a standing desk like this adjustable one by WOKA will make multitasking a bit easier.
No windows in your at-home office space? No problem. Achieve the perfect lighting for Zoom calls, video recordings and more with a clip on ring light. Try this dimmable option.
If you’re worried about your FBI agent watching your every move (if you know, you know), a sliding webcam cover like this one can help give you peace of mind and a little extra privacy when the cameras aren’t (supposed) to be rolling.
Whether you’re trying to savor your morning coffee or you're just too busy to drink it before it gets cold, a mug warmer can keep it hot. Try this wireless one.
…Because we think they should be part of every work from home uniform. After all, working from home allows you to be business up top and comfort down below. Here are a few cozy slippers you should add to your cart: Ankis Fuzzy Memory Foam Slippers, Men’s Memory Foam Slippers and Retro Smiley Face Slippers.
We hope you and your kids have an amazing school year! At Bowe Digital, we’re passionate about what we do and can work with any budget. Contact Bradley Erb on our team at email@example.com to discuss your marketing goals! Learn more about our services at bowedigital.com.
Listen up! No, really. Pop on your headphones or connect to your car’s Bluetooth during your next drive because you don’t want to miss what Wayne Stanley had to say about marketing on the FNF Unplugged podcast.
The Fidelity National Financial Family of Companies’ Unplugged podcast was created to spark conversations with professionals across the country – exploring business topics and empowering personal growth in real estate, financial services and the title industry. In May, our Owner and Chief Inspiration Officer joined FNF’s marketing guru, Linda Grahovec, on the podcast for a two-part marketing series. Wayne has spent over 15 years in the marketing space. While his prior job experience and connections have helped Bowe Digital carve a niche in the land title industry, we work with small businesses ranging from mom-and-pop flower shops and small accounting firms to storage facilities, little bodegas, car washes and everything in between.
In part one of the two-part series, Linda and Wayne discuss the importance of setting SMART marketing goals and explain how they help to shape your overall marketing strategy and guide your marketing plan (emphasis on guide because it should be flexible). Don’t worry…Wayne starts by defining what each is and what factors to consider. For example, who can give you more business this year? Versus who can give you any business at all this year? It’s okay to think big as long as you start small and uncover which individuals or groups you should focus on.
Sounds good, right? But if you don’t have a dedicated sales or marketing team, you’re probably wondering who this responsibility falls to. The two marketing experts go over the biggest obstacles in marketing and share ideas on how to get through them. Wayne touches on topics from your team’s role in market research, the budget-friendly tools and solutions available to you, how to take action on your ideas and the importance of testing messages, using the analogy “your marketing isn’t a gumball machine.” You can’t put a quarter in and expect to get the flavor you want on the first try. Marketing takes time, and your audience’s flavor preferences are constantly changing, so being able to pivot is key.
Listen to the full podcast here.
It's time to start thinking beyond your website and focus on visuals in other mediums. In part two of the marketing series, Wayne talks about what’s working in today’s market and what’s not. He states that the four biggest marketing wins he’s seeing right now are marketing emails, LinkedIn posts, videos and public relations. But what kind of content works for each? And how often should you be sending them to your customers? Wayne shares the answers to these questions as well as the tools making content creation and design more accessible for non-marketing professionals. Those tools include Chat GPT (use with caution), Canva, Pixabay and his personal favorite, Gratisography.
Linda also sparks a conversation about how a business decides to hire someone internally versus hiring a company like Bowe Digital. While there’s no clear formula, it all ties back to your marketing goals and what you want to accomplish. Think about your work culture. Will an internal marketing person get pulled in different directions and put marketing on the back burner? Are you going to edit the “happy” to “glad” to get things just right? If so, is an external company willing to work shoulder-to-shoulder with you? What will the working relationship look like? Asking and answering these questions can help you make the right decision for your business. However, in most cases, an outside agency will probably be more cost-effective.

Thanks to modern technology and a shift in work culture, many of us now have the freedom to work from anywhere, whether it be a cozy office, a hip coffee shop or a sun-soaked beach. As businesses try to maintain productivity and culture in this new work environment, we want to help!
At Bowe Digital, remote work is all we know. Our entire team has been working remotely since getting our start in 2017. We’ve also grown in distance, adding team members who live outside of Indiana. Everyone at Bowe has become a pro at working from home. So, grab your laptop, put on some pants (or don’t…we’re not judging), and join me on a journey through what we’ve learned.
Video is your friend.
Bread is bread. Who cares if it’s sliced or not? Instead, video is the best thing since face-to-face meetings. Video content has layers and reaches the emotional part of our brains. It’s been said that a one-minute video is worth 1.8 million written words. So if you’re not using it, you should be!
At Bowe Digital, we use video internally and externally, and we opt for Zoom meetings whenever we can. Getting your faces out there helps grow connections within your team and reminds your customers that real people are behind every transaction they have with you. I know video can be scary. We weren’t all born to be TikTok stars (Thank God), but here’s a reminder that you are your own harshest critic. If you’re brave enough to talk to people in the world every day despite your hair not being perfect, stuttering over a word or two or just not liking the sound of your voice, you’re brave enough to do it on video. Start by sending a BombBomb video to a friend or hopping on a quick Zoom call with a colleague.
Have meetings often.
Just because you’re remote doesn’t mean you have to meet with your team every day. If it can be sent in an email, just send an email. However, internal meetings are a time to connect, grow and get on the same page. Use small group meetings to think strategically, talk about your customers and break down what’s working and what’s not. Use full team meetings to share company news, complete training sessions and update each other about your week. At Bowe Digital, we try to keep it fun by giving different people the chance to lead and asking questions that range from “What’s your favorite thing about Spring?” to “Would you rather burp glitter or fart glitter?”
When it comes to your customers, you should be setting clear expectations. Remote or not, communication is the key to a successful partnership. Ask your clients about their preferences – do they want to hear from you over email, the phone or a Zoom call? Once you know that, set up a recurring meeting. The goal is not to waste people’s time, so do your research before every call. It’s also wise to set an expectation about how quickly customers can expect a response from you outside of scheduled meetings.
Take advantage of online tools.
We’re not above having one hundred tabs open, but we suggest those tabs consist of tools to keep your assignments, communication and schedule in order. Some of the tools our team uses daily are Monday.com, Gmail, Slack, HeyOrca and Canva.
Show your appreciation for each other.
Celebrate each other's wins! I may be biased, but I have a kick-ass team, and their kick-assery goes beyond the great work they do. Never hesitate to lift your employees and colleagues up and thank them for the little and big things they do daily. At Bowe Digital, we have #teamlove and #partnerlove channels on Slack, dedicated to sharing good news from our partners and giving each other well-deserved kudos when they’ve done something great.
Make time for non-work related fun.
Follow the advice of Wiz Khalifa (a very reputable source, obviously) and “Work Hard, Play Hard.” There’s no post-work drinks or lunchtime chatter when you work remotely, so it’s important to carve out time for fun. In our experience, that’s how you really get to know and trust one another.
Our Bowe Digital team has bonded over many gut-wrenching losses while competing in March Madness this season, enjoyed mimosas and brunch together on Zoom and made the most of our in-person meetings. We’ve gone to Indianapolis Indians baseball games with our families, celebrated more Bowe babies than I can count and learned who can carry a tune…and who can’t at Karaoke. Through these experiences, we’ve become less like a team and more like a family, and family can go the distance in remote business. I would know; I work with my mom.
Be a pro like Bowe. At Bowe Digital, we’re passionate about what we do, and we work with any budget. Contact Bradley Erb on our team at email@example.com to discuss your marketing goals! Learn more about our services at bowedigital.com.
Professional networking, like dating, has gone digital. Whether you’re swiping on Tinder, Bumble or Hinge or looking for connections on LinkedIn, not everyone will be your match. For many users, you may end up going on 50 First Dates, but we find comfort in knowing that Drew Barrymore herself uses the apps to meet people too.
LinkedIn offers a space to network with people without the heartbreak. Networking can help you strengthen your personal brand, form connections with other industry professionals who can help you further your career, gain valuable insight, stay up-to-date with trends and explore new job opportunities. While Bowe Digital can’t ensure that you’ll be lucky in love, we can help your business. Today, we’re sharing our advice for networking on LinkedIn.
Make Your Profile Look Legit
Stranger danger is real, ya’ll. With stories like the Tinder Swindler on Netflix, we’ve got trust issues when it comes to meeting people online, and can you blame us? If your profile doesn’t make a good first impression, viewers will swipe left and move on to the next one, because, let’s face it, they’ve got options.
A complete and polished profile will help win people over and reassure them that you’re authentic…and that they won’t end up on an episode of Catfish. Fully completed profiles result in 40 times more opportunities, according to LinkedIn. Here’s what to include to make your LinkedIn profile stand out (in a good way):
Find Your People
Not everyone is going to be your match, and that’s okay! Find people you have things in common with and request to connect with them. If that sounds intimidating, start by connecting with people you know and trust. LinkedIn allows you to upload your address book from email. Joining groups is another great way to find your people. This resource from LinkedIn suggests starting with volunteer organizations, associations you belong to and school groups. Try reaching out to alumni or previous mentors and professors (they love connecting with students and other alums).
Send the First Message
Whether you’re sending a friendly note alongside your connection request or asking another professional for advice, make it custom. If you’ve met them in person, tell them where, who you met them through or what organization you have in common. If this is your first interaction, do your research. You can use LinkedIn Advanced Search and company pages to learn about the background and interests of the people you’re contacting. Most importantly, don’t be afraid to make the first move. LinkedIn is a professional community where many people are willing to connect and help each other learn and grow.
Update Your Status
Professional status: ready to mingle. Produce and share content that is engaging and sparks conversation. Try getting in front of the camera and posting a video, share an article and include your thoughts or post pictures of you and other professionals at an industry event. Never miss an opportunity to tag other people. You’re a catch, and you can remind the people in your network of that by updating your status regularly.
Start building your professional community today, and feel free to connect with our team! If you need more help, Bowe Digital is here for you! We can develop custom solutions to increase your presence on social media platforms, including LinkedIn. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!

After a long or stressful day at work, sometimes you just need something strong to help take the edge off. So take a seat at the Bowe Digital bar, and order a drink. We’ll mix it up; your drink choice will say a lot about your business’s marketing.
Today’s Cocktail List:
Wayne’s Hot Tip: Wayne’s tip for the best Old Fashioned, beyond great bourbon, is the cherry and he loves this brand most.
It’s in the name…Old Fashioned. An Old Fashioned is a straightforward and strong drink with no surprises. For many people, it does not go down easy, which is not a good thing when it comes to drinking or marketing. Old-fashioned marketing is as plain as the water that goes into the drink. It does not change with the times and isn’t as popular with younger crowds. If you’re not using social media or incorporating video and eye-catching graphics into your marketing, this might be the drink for you.
However, we recommend you keep browsing the list for a new cocktail.
The Whiskey Sour is loved by some and hated by others. It’s controversial for its sour taste and that optional egg white (because why??). It’s a risk, which in marketing doesn’t always pay off. However, it works better in some industries than others. The fast food restaurant Wendy’s, for example, has seen success from its sassy personality on Twitter, which you can find examples of here. The restaurant bravely roasts its customers and competing companies, which earns them varied responses. If this sounds like your marketing, then we suggest you chug, in case it goes too sour!
Heather’s Hot Tip: If you’re like Heather, you want a Marg with less sugar. She suggests you skip the pre-mix stuff. The best marg is tequila, fresh lime juice and a tajin rim.
The Margarita is fun; it has no rules. Like great marketing, it can be customized to the customer likes. We can make them sweet, skinny or spicy. We can salt or sugar the rim, offer different flavors and put them in any glass you’d like. Not a tequila drinker? Try vodka. If your marketing is one-of-a-kind and tailored to reflect the likes and dislikes of your audience, then cheers! This is the drink for you and for us, too!
At Bowe Digital, the margarita is our specialty. We can make it any way you’d like. Our team of experts stays up-to-date on trends and knows what works to make a perfectly balanced marketing strategy that isn’t old-fashioned or too sour. Contact me, Bradley Erb at email@example.com to mix up a custom marketing plan that’s unique to your business! Learn more about our services at bowedigital.com.
People want to feel special, and that’s what custom does. Whether it’s a custom designed cake, custom engraved gift, or custom built home, these one-of-a-kind solutions work to win people over.
Why pay for custom marketing? The same reason you pay for anything custom: you love it and want everyone else (your customers) to love it too! Custom marketing is your chance to stand out from the competition. It shows your customers that you know them and that your posts were made just for them.
Cut Through the Noise
Marketing is everywhere. Most Americans are exposed to 4,000 to 10,000 ads each day, according to this article from Forbes. However, that doesn’t mean everything we see or hear sticks. Hundreds of companies are offering the same products or services while marketing them in similar ways. It becomes noise, and only the most eye-catching and unique ones are heard. For small businesses, it’s even harder, but custom marketing can help.
Kids are notoriously harsh critics. They’ll tell you that you look fat one minute and that your food tastes awful the next, so we’ll use them as an example. Picture your kid going to the school bake sale. You send them with a pack of those thickly iced store-bought cookies (you know the ones). Other parents send their kids with sheet cakes and plastic-wrapped cupcakes. All but one, that is. Jeremy’s mom sends him with a 2-tiered custom cake designed around 2022’s most trending movie, Encanto. The bake sale ends, and your child comes home…can you guess what happens next? You hear about Jeremy, Jeremy’s mom, Jeremy’s cake and Encanto until your ears bleed! Yep, custom works any way you slice it, whether it’s a cake or marketing. It makes a lasting impact on people, and everything else fades away.
With custom marketing, you’ll reach individuals who are actually interested in your service and products without wasting money on those who aren’t. By using custom services like geo-fenced paid ads, you can target the specific geographic areas you want to hit. You can also curate your marketing materials to reflect the likes and dislikes of your customers. If your audience likes being active, you’d show them custom sneakers over a custom cake, creating opportunities for personal connections.
Quality marketing translates to quality products and services in the minds of your consumers. Not only does that mean having custom designs and content but also consistency. Your audience will come to expect your posts in the good times and especially in the hard times. It reminds them that you’re available to them and still investing in your business which means you’re still investing in them. Platforms like HeyOrca can help you schedule social media posts months in advance.
Remember, consistency doesn’t mean that there can’t be surprises. You can always find new ways to shake things up and grab people’s attention. At Bowe Digital, we’ve started incorporating trending topics into our marketing. Whether it’s the corn kid letting everyone know Bowe Digital has the juice or looking at the marketing in Netflix’s Emily in Paris, custom allows for creativity, relevance and excitement in your marketing.
Leave it to the Professionals
If you’ve ever watched Netflix’s Nailed It, you know what can happen when you tackle a new task on your own for the first time – disaster. It’s best to leave custom cakes to the bakers and custom marketing to the marketing professionals. Nobody does custom like Bowe Digital. We’ll tell your story for you and get creative when you can’t, all while moving at your pace and according to your brand image. Contact Bradley Erb on our team at firstname.lastname@example.org for marketing that’s uniquely yours! Learn more about our services at bowedigital.com.
We all know the story of Cinderella. Or at least some version of it, whether it’s the 1950 original movie, a live-action remake like the 2015 Cinderella or the 2004 spin-off, A Cinderella story, featuring Hilary Duff.
Bowe Digital has come up with our own modern twist on Cinderella, and you’re the main character. Let’s set the scene. In every Cinderella story, there’s a ball, a dance or a party where everyone wants to be. In our story, that place is TikTok.
What is TikTok?
TikTok is a social media platform where people come from near and far to share and stream video content. And yes, it’s more than just teenagers dancing. Users on TikTok range from ages 10-50+. With over one billion active users, the application has become more popular than Snapchat, Pinterest and Twitter. You don’t need to know how to waltz to attend this ball. TikTok allows dialogue, music, sound bytes and more on every topic you can imagine, personal or professional. These short videos can be anywhere from 15 seconds to three minutes in length. The application is also being used as a search engine. TikTok now receives more daily searches than Google.
Why should you be on TikTok?
In this story, if you don’t join TikTok before the clock strikes 12, you’ll turn back into a pumpkin. By that we mean, you’ll lose some relevance because pumpkin is a seasonal flavor. As a business or professional, you want to stay relevant all year long. To do that, you may need to meet your customers where they are. Joining platforms like TikTok is a great way to expose your business to new audiences and younger generations and show that you are willing to adapt to changes and trends in social media. By joining now, you can stand out from your evil step competitors and win the affection of your charming customers.
You’ve seen it on Instagram and Facebook; both platforms are incorporating more videos. TikTok is the king of video. Other benefits of joining TikTok include its huge, growing audience, international audience and ease of connection. Users can easily comment, like and share your content. According to this Forbes article, “TikTok is also the social media platform with the most opportunities to ‘go viral.’”
Getting started on TikTok with examples
It only takes one good video to go from zero to hero on TikTok. This video of our team member Joe Pittman got nearly two million views after being posted by his church. Similar to Cinderella’s glass slipper, you need to find the content that fits. The four main types of content you should use to promote your brand are videos of you and your team, user duets, advertisements and influencer related content. It could be as simple as dueting a video and sharing your thoughts, like this example here from a home inspector. You could take a clever route using music clips like this real estate example here. You can showcase your team and office culture in a fun way like this example here. Your content should be relatable, fun and true to your brand. Using popular hashtags can help ensure your content reaches the right audience. Follow this guide from TikTok to create your first video, or lean on our team at Bowe Digital.
TikTok may be the key to you and your business’s happily ever after. Bowe Digital is your marketing fairy godmother, and we can help increase your presence on social media platforms including TikTok. We’ll help you come up with ideas, edit videos and more. Visit bowedigital.com to start.
Ring! Ring! School is back in session and not just for your kids. As a former Kindergarten teacher working for Bowe Digital, I can tell you that marketing and teaching aren’t as different as you may think. What’s the biggest difference? Instead of keeping a classroom of kids engaged and happy, we convince entire online audiences of busy adults to pay attention to us in hopes they’ll give us a gold star for being the best teacher in our industry.
Now that summer break is over, you can teach your customers about your business through marketing. Luckily, I’m here to give you a quick lesson on teaching, and we’ll start with the basics.
Get to Know Your Students
It’s time to break the ice…let’s play two truths and a lie.
TRUTH: Everyone can use a refresh on the basics. However, a person just discovering your business will need different information than someone who’s been working with you for years. Your marketing should target audiences in every step of the buying process.
TRUTH: Uncovering your customers’ questions helps you define your curriculum. Send out surveys, look at reviews and ask your employees. Once you understand what your customers need, you can answer their questions proactively.
LIE: Knowing your buyer persona is vital to your marketing efforts. Understanding the likes and dislikes of your target customer is how you choose topics and make your marketing relatable.
Decorate Your Classroom
No, in this scenario, your classroom isn’t your office; that’s more of a teachers' lounge. Your classroom is online, where your customers go to learn. Your online presence and marketing materials should be inviting and eye-catching. Like any great teacher, we often trick students into learning the material by getting creative. Decorate your marketing with videos, images and sounds to make learning about your business fun.
Define the Terms, and Go Over New Systems
Consumers value being informed. Give them the information they need to choose the right product or service on their own. Try making weekly social posts defining the terms your customers may need to know or highlighting what your products and services do.
If there’s one thing students love, it’s shortcuts. Consider this when it comes to your systems and technologies. Let your customers know what they do and how they’ll make life easier.
Finally, make yourself available, and be open to more questions. Communication is key. After a transaction, complete a personal follow-up over the phone or email. Take it one step further by offering more educational resources to your customers.
Follow these steps to become the coolest teacher in school (or in your industry). Of course, Bowe Digital will be teaching marketing in the classroom next door. My team and I are always happy to provide you with more tips and marketing services at bowedigital.com.
You know when your mom used to make you clean the whole house anytime people were coming over? Well, this is kind of like that…
We’re acting as Mom here and telling you to tidy up your website so that your guests keep coming back. Your website is the home for your story and services; it’s also your chance to make a great first impression. When you want a clean house, you call a maid. When you want a clean website, you call Bowe Digital!
We can help make your website sparkling clean with our 3-step website creation process, but first, let’s talk about what makes a website stand out from the ones next door.
This article lists 7 qualities of a great website. Here are 4 that stand out:
Well-Designed and Functional
Your website should have white space and breaks. It should be uncluttered, Marie Kondo style, with quality photographs and graphics to let your message shine through. See this website we designed for Golden Dog Title & Trust. Your users won’t stick around if it’s hard to navigate or if there are issues with speed and functionality.
Optimized for Mobile
Most users look at your website from their phones, so in our best mom voice, we say, “There are no excuses.” With the growth of digital technology and devices, your website should look great and work well on any platform.
Fresh, Quality Content
It’s time to renovate! Your website should use language that makes sense to your audience and avoid corporate jargon. Visitors have short attention spans so correct spelling, accuracy, relevance and frequent updates with fresh content (videos, blogs, social, etc.) are vital to improving SEO and organic traffic. Take a look at Amerititle’s, blog. As their trusted partner, we keep the information posted here current and fresh.
Optimized for Search and the Social Web
Imagine you get your website prepped and ready for visitors, but no one shows up. To grow your guest list, your content needs to be well tagged, contain searchable words, have a decluttered HTML code and be easily shareable.
If your website isn’t hitting these marks or you’re not sure if it stands out from the website next door…don’t worry! The Bowe Digital team can help clean it up! Visit bowedigital.com/contact-us to learn more about our 3-step website creation process and our website hosting services!
