Montana High Tech Business Alliance is the Digs

Montana High Tech Business Alliance

We were able to attend the Montana High Tech Business Alliance meet and greet last week. This alliance is a Montana member organization purposing to create more high tech jobs in the area. We were really impressed with the amount of Montana businesses that showed up to represent their ‘high tech’ companies, swapping business cards and expanding their networking community among like-minded entrepreneurs. From talent curation, to personal shipments, we learned a ton about other high-tech organizations, and were able to share and impart some of our knowledge as well.

On another note, we would like to give a ‘shout out’ to LeaAnne, one of the mainstays of Rocky Mountain Bank. Leanne managed to make us feel incredibly welcomed, and encouraged us to be ourselves among the crowd of very successful CEOs, and future leaders of Montana. Thank you for the personal tour of the upstairs as we sought to capture the event through a bird’s eye view.

If you haven’t yet heard of the Montana High Tech Business Alliance, we strongly encourage you to visit their website and learn more about the opportunities they present.

The next meeting will be held in Lewistown, Montana, on April 14th.

Website Content in Bozeman Montana

contentonwood

Every website needs engaging content, and one of the most important factors is to keep that content fresh and continually updated. One mistake we see with smaller business websites throughout our home headquarters in Bozeman, Montana, is a tendency to spend a ton of money on a website that is then left on the shelf to collect dust and eventually become outdated and obsolete to its audience. Moreover, it can have a very negative impact on your Google search engine results.

Another common mistake companies make, is spending too much time on their social networks and not enough time on their own prominent website. By spending a majority of one’s time updating their Facebook, Twitter, or other social network platforms, one tends to neglect their own uniqueness. The key to having a successful online presence is to continually be creating fun, creative, educational content on your own domain, and utilizing your social media platforms to direct traffic back to your main company website.

There is an easy way to fix these common mistakes and get your website running smoothly again and making your money work for you. Start looking at your company website as your own social media network. If you don’t have a blog yet, start one, and spend a little time writing a few posts. Do you already have a blog? Great! Just remember to continually add content to it. Try to keep a scheduled posting day; maybe it’s Friday of every week, or maybe it’s the first of every month. Remember to employ analytic software to see exactly which posts attract the most attention. Google Analytics is a great entry level software free for your use.

Don’t have time to work on creating blog posts, or tracking analytics? That’s where we come in, from creative writing, to photography and video production, we have the tools to meet any and all of your online content requirements and will work with your available budget to show you the best route you can take to keep your website alive and thriving.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a small business in a small town in Montana, or a larger corporation in a large city like Silicon Valley. Let us show you how, and why, content makes a difference; request a quote from Social Den today!

If You Want To Stand Out, Ya Gotta Be Different

Content is as much about creativity and being set-apart, as it is marketing a specific goal or product. Just this morning, on our way to the office, we spotted an amazing display of visual content. We always keep a lookout for inspired content, and this particular subject caught our attention right away. There it sat, amid the cold foggy morning, perched next to the sidewalk like a killer whale lounging reef-side might do. A colorful example of creative content at its finest.

As soon as our eyes observed the vehicle, our investigative spirit urged us to discover more. Luckily, the back of the car made its owner known to us quite easily; there, “East Main Ink” was written in a sexy and fun script. East Main Ink has been around since 2011 and quickly set itself apart as a professional, creative, and inviting store in town catering to all fans of tattooing and art in general. With over 20 years of tattooing experience, East Main Ink combines skill with creativity and has an amazing portfolio of truly inspirational ink work.

We commend you for your awesomeness East Main Ink. Keep up the good work!

Always an Availability of Content

Content is all around you. On Tuesday of this week we did something we love to do every once in a while (to inspire our creativity). We left the office behind and headed up to Bridger Bowl to ski some fresh powder that had fallen overnight. We thought it would be cool to share a part of our experience, and show you that it isn’t hard to create content. Bringing along a camera can turn your off-work ski day into an opportunity to create something that you will boost your online presence and expand your online viewership.

We call this ‘an ode to the mountain we all love so much’ and ‘a lesson in creative content creation.’ If it weren’t for the mosquitoes and horseflies, we would totally marry the Bridger range.
