One of the main services we provide at Modmacro is digital marketing for our small business clients, a major part of which is search engine optimization (SEO). Our proven SEO strategies help our clients get found on the web by those looking for their specific goods and services, which in turn helps them grow their businesses.

The network was looking for companies to appear on an episode of one of the “tiny house” shows that have become increasingly popular with viewers. They found our client through a web search when they were looking for a reputable replacement window company in San Diego and asked our client if they would be interested in appearing on an episode of the show!

We recently began working with a new startup in Encinitas. The owner is just starting to put the pieces of her new company together, but she knew right away that a professional logo and website are top priorities. She understands the importance of having a clean, industry appropriate logo design and a strong web presence.
We have a number of clients in Encinitas for whom we’ve developed websites, handled their digital marketing and SEO, and more. But it’s been a while since we connected with a startup in Encinitas. Over the past few years most of our Encinitas web design clients have been small, but more established, with most having at least a few years behind them.

Small, service-based businesses have it tough. They often have to compete for customers with much larger, sometimes national, organizations—organizations with their own internal marketing departments and large marketing budgets to go along with them.
We understand the need to stand out in a competitive field. But we also know it’s entirely possible to market even the smallest businesses online in such a way that the major search engines give them a spot among top results. We’ve been helping clients do this for years with a series of proven processes that deliver serious results.

Fallbrook is strategically located at the far north edge of North County, San Diego, and just south of the Riverside County border and Temecula. Fallbrook is close to Interstate 15, a major thoroughfare for shipping and receiving. As such, Fallbrook has turned out to be a great place for many small businesses to thrive.
Although commonly thought of as a small community, Fallbrook is actually about a third the size of Temecula in terms of population. Not that small. Fallbrook is home to many small businesses that have planted roots and the community is made up of homeowners who remain in the same home longer than the national average, indicating that the area sees lower population turnover. All this adds up to Fallbrook being an ideal location for small businesses to grow. Continue reading “Partnering with Small Businesses in Fallbrook for Web Design and Digital Marketing” »

As the name implies, the AVA Digital Awards recognize creative professionals who achieve excellence in digital communications such as websites, social media, and audio and video production. Most of Modmacro’s awards came in the website categories, but we also received recognition in the Information Video category, as well as the Facebook Presence category.
