Interactive Marketing Firm Works with Clients to Enhance their Web Site

Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) September 5, 2007

Cincinnati Solutions, a full service interactive marketing firm, is taking what traditionally was four separate marketing services and is bringing them together, under one roof. Acting as a single source for marketing needs, Cincinnati Solutions works with businesses to provide interactive photography, online video presentations, search engine marketing and internet marketing consultation, resulting in a cost effective option for enhancing and promoting a Web site. The recently launched company Web site, http://www.cincinnatisolutions.com, utilizes these marketing tactics and provides companies a peek at what new technologies are available on the Web.

With more than 10 years experience working in the interactive and advertising industry, founder and managing partner Adam Eger offers a unique perspective on interactive marketing. Having worked with both business-to-business and business-to-consumer clients, Eger saw the need for a firm that could offer clients a single source for their Interactive marketing needs. Often, Web projects don’t require the same level of complexity as traditional print, TV or radio ads, but should bear just as much importance in a company’s marketing plan.

“The ever increasing use of Web sites as marketing tools and the recent popularity of YouTube, has resulted in companies wanting to publish their own video clips and incorporate new interactive tools on their Web site,” said Eger. “From easily viewed video product commercials or podcasts, to interactive product tours, virtual tours and time lapses, companies are finding more ways to reach their customer and provide them with all the information they need to help influence them to choose their product over the competition.”

The internet is moving fast, and people’s marketing needs are just as “timely.” Cincinnati Solutions works with companies, from the initial strategy development, to identifying photo needs to the actual taking of the photos. Taking it a step further, they offer clients the ability to use video, a once nearly impossible feat, on their Web site. Whether it’s on-site shooting or back-end editing, Cincinnati Solutions works to provide easily viewed online video presentations that showcase any event or product commercial.

Companies are also relying more on search engine optimization (SEO) to increase the volume and quality of traffic to their site from search engines. If a company employs SEO tactics on their site they can achieve a higher “rank” in the search engines, thus creating more opportunities for views of their site. Cincinnati Solutions works with clients to review their existing Web site, make recommendations on how to optimize their site using targeted keywords and to develop a plan to create valuable content and marketing outreach efforts on their site.

“In this interactive age, a company needs to benchmark and maximize their efforts on the web to make sure they aren’t missing out on opportunities,” Eger said. “We recognize this need and are helping companies stay up to speed with the latest technologies, so clients can focus on what they do best.”

Ohio Home Improvement Firm Launches New Website and Consumer Initiative

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) September 24, 2011

Ohio Window and Door, the state?s premier home improvement company, has launched a new website and an initiative designed to help consumers make more informed choices about energy efficient windows, patio doors and the company?s other services.

?Our dedication to providing Ohioans with the best possible customer service is being extended to our Internet presence,? said Jim Fisher, owner of Ohio Window and Door. ?Someone looking for new windows, doors, roofing and attic insulation can now find resources close to home more quickly.?

Fisher chose to have his new website search engine optimized, which removes much of the guesswork from seeking a particular service or business. SEO is growing technology that enables Fisher?s website to appear on the first page of Google searches and be a more information-rich resource. Links to particular energy-saving services such as attic insulation, window replacement and triple pane windows are now easier to find.

?The Internet is a crowded place and it can be difficult to locate what you are looking for,? said Fisher. ?Our redesigned website will help people who want to find quality home improvement close to town. People can search by city, by the type of work they want done, or both.

?It is very targeted,? he continued. ?Ultimately, this will make it easier for consumers to find what they need with fewer mouse clicks.?

Search Engine Optimization is fast becoming this shortcut to consumer awareness. It is a discipline that, in expert hands, can help businesses stand out in a crowd.

The company installs replacement and patio doors, many types of windows, attic insulation and roof systems in Cleveland as well as Akron, Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, Toledo, Tallmadge, Mogadore, Wadsworth, Canton, Cuyahoga Falls, Brecksville, Medina and Fairlawn.

Among the most highly searched services, Fisher said, is window replacement. ?Many Ohioans want a window that is well insulated against the temperatures outside. They want windows that keep damaging UV rays out of the home to protect loved ones from sunburn and stop furniture from fading, and they want the best protection against extreme weather conditions and moisture. With an optimized website, they can find us quickly and more easily, and then make the best choice possible on their home improvement project.?

Diaz Reus & Targ, LLP Law Firm Managing Partner Michael Diaz, Jr. Outlines Trends in International Commercial Law at Recent Legal Seminar in Havana, Cuba

Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 14, 2011

Cuban-born attorney Michael Diaz, Jr., managing partner of Diaz Reus & Targ, LLP, recently outlined trends in international commercial law in a Havana seminar sponsored by the Union Nacional de Juristas de Cuba (National Union of Cuban Jurists). Diaz focused on the growth of free trade agreements in the Western Hemisphere, the decline of local protectionist laws and the growing harmonization of international commercial law throughout Latin America.

?This was my first visit to Cuba since I left the country as a young boy,? said Diaz, a former president of the Cuban American Bar Association in Miami. ?While there are many differences between the United States and Cuba, there are common issues facing commercial attorneys in both countries, especially relating to international law.?

More than 150 practicing lawyers and professors attended the 11th international Havana conference on private and commercial international law, hosted by the University of Havana. Diaz Reus was the sponsor of the June event, which is one in series of continuing legal education seminars in Cuba.

Speaking on “The Free Trade Treaties in Latin America and The Caribbean: Their Contribution to the Harmonization of Commercial Law in the Region,? Diaz and firm associate Chad Purdie presented a case study involving a dispute between a global technology company and its Central America distributor.

?The law in this case was repealed as part of the free trade agreement between the Dominican Republic, Central America, and the U.S. (DR-CAFTA),? said Diaz. ?In fact, local protectionist laws in those countries have gone away as a result of the free trade agreement, which has had a profound impact in harmonizing commercial law throughout the region.?

Miami-based Diaz Reus & Targ, LLP, is a full-service international law firm focusing on litigation, trade, customs, financial, commercial and corporate transactions, tax, immigration, and arbitration matters. The firm operates offices in Miami, and Orlando, Florida; Shanghai, China; Mexico City, Mexico; Frankfurt, Germany; Caracas, Venezuela; Dubai, U.A.E.; Bogota, Colombia; Sao Paulo/Belo Horizonte, Brazil; and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
