Hometown Remodeling Partners with CMI

Hometown Remodeling has partnered with Complete Media to build their online presence with a strong website to drive inbound leads to their roofing division. The process started by developing a well branded informative website that helps brand Hometown Remodeling as the local Sioux Falls area experts.

Their successful campaign includes search engine marketing, online marketing that is geographically targeted, and an increase in social media presence. Complete Media also created content and designed effective door hangers, which were used to target potential leads and bring in more business. When it comes to growing Hometown Remodeling’s business, we have them well covered!

Holz Haus Polishes Their Marketing with CMI

At the start of our partnership, we worked with Holz Haus Furniture to re-brand their entire business. We started with analyzing their target demographic, executing focus groups and conducted surveys. With solid data, we produced a brand that connected with the targeted demographics. This re-branding included a fresh logo, business cards, letterhead, envelope, thank you cards, and presentation materials. We also executed interior signage to match their new brand and enhance the in-store consumer experience.

We continue to execute a strategic advertising campaign which includes television, billboard, print, web banner marketing, and search engine marketing. Through their online search engine optimization and advertising campaign, we have helped place them nationally on page one of search engines when searching “Amish Furniture!” We also support events and promotions that they host and continue to provide consultation in all areas of their business. In addition, we support their social marketing helping them build relationships with their loyal clients.

March 20: Sell your Products and Services Online

Keep It Local Online

When online shopping first hit the scene, consumers were trending only towards the megasites that we’re essentially the Wal-Mart of online stores.  (You could do that shopping in your pajamas, too.  Just like Wal-Mart!)  As online shopping has stabilized and more Mom and Pop style companies have come on the scene, online shopping has become more and more a part of the regular economy.

The latest trend is for online sales to increase business for even local shops.  Rather than driving across town, many consumers are choosing to cruise a local companies online store.  Which means you should probably get one so you can close the deals that don’t make it through your doors.

Learn how to integrate online shopping into your web marketing strategy on March 20th at noon.  Always at Complete Media.  $10 for the general public, free for the Complete Media Circle.

February 20: Keep your Competition at Bay Using Domain Names


Let’s Use the Domain Wall Thing Again

Because you’re building protection as well.  The majority of web traffic is through search engines.  That includes traffic meant to go to specific websites (as in Googling “Complete Media” as opposed to typing www.completemediainc.com in the browser bar.)  A domain campaign helps to ensure that users looking for industry related terms are directed to your website first.

Domain campaigns are a fairly low cost addition to any web marketing strategy and can yield surprising results.  It’s essential to find the right domain names for your area, though.  We can help with that.

Stop down at Complete Media on February 20th at noon to learn how to take advantage of this web marketing strategy.  $10 for the general public, free for the Complete Media Circle.

January 16: Know What Your Domains Are Worth


Buy Low, Sell High
There is a whole subsection of the web marketing industry who specialize in the buying and selling of domain names – much like the stock market.  They purchase generic domain names that have high value in keywords, and then sell them to companies interested in bulking up their domain marketing.

Kind of a crazy thought, huh?

Fact of the matter is some domains do have a high value and serious money can come into play.  We’ve had clients’ offered thousands of dollars for their domain.  What’s your domain worth?

December 19: Increase traffic to your website for the new year



Be the Angel on The Google X-mas Tree

You can be on the top of Google within less than a week. When people search for related terms to your industry, you can be the first one they see. And you can do this with a pretty low monthly budget. Neat, huh?

6 months ago, we released an upgraded version of one of key tools, Search Engine Visibility. The upgraded version will not only help you boost your organic rankings, it also has one of the best Google Adword managers integrated into the same software.

How much can you benefit? Come down to Complete Media at noon on the 19th to learn how this can boost your internet traffic. $10 for the general public, free for the Complete Media Circle.

December 5: Never ever ever lose your domain…ever!



When the domain name goes, everything else goes, too!

Your credit card expires. You change your email address and don’t update your domain contact information. Someone close to you, or a social engineer, transfers your domain name away without your permission.  One oversight and you could lose the domain name you worked so hard to get. That means any website or email services associated with it will stop working.

You can protect yourself from this disaster…and it can be a disaster.

Step-by-Step Guide for Defusing a Heated Customer Service Situation

While I normally write my own posts, I ran short on time so I lifted this from Yaniv Masjedi. Yaniv is VP of marketing at Nextiva and a close, personal friend of mine. Actually I’ve never met him, but I do agree with his take on unhappy clients/customers.

Need a lift?

Life can be stressful.
There is no denying that.  Work, home, and pressures from society can make life tough.  Here are some tips that have worked for me to get out of the funk and back to productivity.
    1. Write it down. I’ve recently started (well, restarted for the thousandth time) writing in a journal. Putting my thoughts on paper brings an instant relief from the inner anxiety, allowing me to think more rationally and have more control.


    1. Find your musical muse. Mine is Sara Bareilles.  She always knows just what to say to turn my day around.


    1. Movie it. “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands.”  – Name that movie.


    1. Simply laugh. Watching a funny Youtube clip or a comedy flick is great for turning the day around. I’ve recently discovered ‘Wipeout’ and that always gives me a chuckle.


    1. Fake it till you make it. If you have to fake a smile for the world, do it because eventually you won’t have to fake it.


    1. Stay busy. Rather than spending an evening eating Ben & Jerry’s, go out on the town.  Make plans that you can look forward to. Go out for dinner with your friends, watch the newest movie that’s out in theaters, or better yet, get yourself a massage.


  1. Live by the quotes you pin on Pinterest. Ridiculous? Maybe. However, I am constantly telling myself the quotes that I read or find and eventually, I start to believe them. Live positively and positive things will happen to you.
Everyone has different ways to help them relieve the stress. So play with it. Experiment with new techniques or do some of your own research. Either way, you’ll find the ways to best relieve your stress and that will may you a happier, healthier person.
