CTV/OTT Advertising

CTV advertising is the new hotness, and everyone is eager to get a piece of the pie. But what is CTV advertising, and why is it so popular? CTV stands for Connected Television, which basically means that your TV is connected to the internet. This allows you to stream content from various sources, including traditional cable TV channels, as well as internet-based services like Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube.

CTV also gives advertisers a new way to reach consumers. Traditionally, TV advertising has been limited to commercials that air during breaks in programming. However, CTV allows advertisers to place their ads directly within the content that consumers are already watching. This provides a more targeted and effective way to reach consumers, which is why CTV advertising is growing in popularity.

Email Marketing

Email marketing is still the most cost-effective way to get new leads and engage existing ones. If you’re not sending regular, strategic emails, it’s time to get started. Building relationships is critical to growing your business - and email is one of the easiest ways to connect with people. It’s more personal, and therefore more trusted than interacting on social media. You should consider it a foundational part of your marketing strategy. We’ll help you develop emails that are action-oriented and deliver measurable results.

Social Media Management

Simply attracting prospects to your site isn’t enough. You also want to grow a community that helps promote your brand with their engagement and enthusiasm.

Having a strategic social media plan is the ticket for attracting new fans and engaging with current ones (to keep the love alive).

When you work with us, we’ll develop a social media plan that best supports your business goals.

Reputation Management

Your online reputation directly affects your bottom line - for better or worse. Let’s make sure it’s for the better.

Here’s how we can help you manage your online reputation:

Strategically use content to establish a positive brand image that proactively insulates your company from negative press/content
Quickly respond to negative content as it surfaces
Build a custom content strategy for long-term reputation management

Make sure you own your story and your reputation. We’ll help.

Derek from DesignLoud always brings the fire!! Thank you for sharing your insight today around Content Marketing. Very helpful and I can't wait to implement some of the strategies within my business.

Derek just led a webinar talking about "on-site" SEO, and I'm astonished at the breadth and width of information and tools that he presented.

We love our new website and it is getting attention. It is professionally done and for us cutting edge, the addition of Google ads, a welcomed plus. Kate and Hanna are a delight to work with.
Derek and his associates really know their stuff. You will not find a better provider of internet marketing services.

Such an amazing company. The staff at DesignLoud is so professional and on point it’s incredible.
I have had a website for years but it wasn’t until DesignLoud recreated it that it became the perfect tool it was meant to be. Since then I have gotten more inquiries than I ever have. The company is run by excellent people that actually listen to your needs and respond fast. The customer service is outstanding. The knowledge base runs deep and the greatest part is that they never seem to stop learning. Every time I turn around they are adding more to their repertoire. I highly recommend DesignLoud for ALL your website needs and then some!
DesignLoud is a very professional and skilled company. If you have any questions on how to market and promote your business. Look no further. I highly recommend!
This team is top notch! Responsive, forward thinking, and creative!
As a new client of DesignLoud I could not be more excited to begin our partnership! Speaking with Derek left me feeling so informed and impressed with the data and recommendations that he presented after doing a review of our company website and social media sights!If you have been considering revamping or building a new website I would highly recommend DesignLoud!
I have used Derek and the team at Design Loud for multiple website design and SEO projects. They have never let me down!
They do a great job and focus on transparency, which is typically missing from this market! I would recommend Derek and his team to anyone wanting to take their business up a notch!
DesignLoud is an innovative, cutting edge digital marketing firm, capable of transforming any sized business from having a weak presence online to being a powerhouse in the digital space.
Employees are always happy to assist and answer any questions. They are transparent and pleasant to work with.
Top Notch. From design to development to building an App for all platforms, these guys can do it all quickly and very reasonably. We have used MANY other developers in the past. None compare to DesignLoud. They really care about how your website does because they take it personally. Thanks a million! We wouldn't exist without you!
I can't really say enough about Derek and his team. My experience with DesignLoud was so starkly different from my experience with any other web designers or graphic artists that I have ever dealt with. They gave me exactly what I asked for and needed, and never tried to "upsell" me on things that I didn't. They cleaned up a HUGE mess that a former designer had left. They are very professional and knowledgeable but never speak over your head. The work is of the highest quality. But I guess I was most impressed with the reasonable price and the speed of the work. I have even had Derek make changes within hours. I realize this may not be possible all the time, but I know he cares about my business and about his work. I think Design Loud is just wonderful, and I am so thankful I found them.
Derek and his staff have helped my business tremendously! I was clueless with how to advertise online and how to financially benefit from our website. He has, very patiently, walked us through the process. Most importantly, he makes himself available to me and my staff. Many times I need last minute adjustments to our website and he immediately responds and takes care of our needs.
