Revive & TDC at the 2012 Addy Awards

The Revive Media Services team, in conjunction with Nicole Scott and the Emerald Coast Convention & Visitors Bureau took home a gold award at the 2012 Addy Awards!

Start off right with Social Media Optimization

SMO (Social Media Optimization) – yet another acronym that everyone, especially small businesses need to pay attention to. What this means is that you need to set up at a minimum the following social media outlets for your business:

Websites will need to change direction in 2012 – rather than solely being an info source about your products and services it should become the online hub for everything related to your business and your brand. Users should easily be able to connect to your site and business from where they spend a good part (25%) of their time online; Facebook, Twitter and YouTube just to name a few. Once users get to your website if you’re streaming your tweets to your homepage they’ll know they can return to your site for the most up-to-date information about your business. And we all know repeat visitors are a good thing. With YouTube, upload videos frequently to your channel and add a link back to your website in the video description. Be sure to prominently display your social media property links (logos) on your homepage so that new and returning visitors can reach them easily for the most up to date info on what’s going on with your business.

These are also plusses for SEO. The more content you have spread out on the web associated with your business, the better chance you have of being found more frequently. Updating your blog frequently also gets crawled by search engines helping with SEO and keeping content fresh and informative.

And if you’re thinking, “how am I gonna be able to update all of these entities”? Well, Revive Media Services has the tools in place that allow for:

This allows for minimum time spent and maximum output of fresh content over the web, so you can get back to business.

Social Media is extremely valuable in getting your customers to engage with you on the web. By “liking” you, sharing your content on their social media properties and giving them a forum to leave comments they’re interacting with your company/brand and “spreading” the word. And that goes a long way for small business.

If all of this seems overwhelming then Revive Media Services is your social media optimization partner. We’ll evaluate your website; make recommendations on what’s best for your business’ website, talk about a web maintenance plan to get social media integrated and update content, then help with getting you set up on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more. Call today and let’s get you optimized for the new year.

Are you listed in Google Places?

search without places

If you’re not you should be.

80% of purchases are made within a 15 mile radius of where users live. That’s why having a Google Places page is good for your business, it’s also a must for local SEO. You can optimize your Places page with pictures, video and exact categories applicable to your business. It’s also important to have a consistent listing in other local directories.

Depending on your organic search term and set location businesses with a Places page may appear at the top of regular organic search results. These search results will have the Google Places info in the search results – address, phone number and a link to the Places page with more info and a map. This can result in a distinct advantage for businesses with a Places page.

Try this:

In order to ONLY have Places pages displayed in results, click on MORE beneath Shopping in the left bar and then choose PLACES. Results will only reveal websites with Places pages.
A user can also change locations in the left bar by clicking on the current location chosen, typing in a city or zip code and clicking on set.While Google seems to be making changes to “Places” quite frequently it’s a good idea to get on the band-wagon now. It’s yet another way of improving your SEO and getting your business found in search results.Call us today and let Revive Media get you set with a Google Places page for your business. Talk with us about our web maintenance and SEO packages and let’s get your business noticed fast!

Revive Media involved in “Uncle Bobs Leg” movie shot recently in Fort Walton Beach

revive_uncle_bobs_leg

Revive Media Services’ Kevin Almodovar recently wrapped a shoot for a scene in the new Black Comedy Film, “Uncle Bobs Leg”.

As Director of Photography he worked with Writer & Director Stephen Baker of Navarre and Screenwriter Don Goodrum. The film was 20 years in the making and will finally come to fruition early next year.

This particular scene was filmed locally in Fort Walton Beach at Beal Street Bottle Club with local talent from Fort Walton Beach and Destin. The movie will make its debut in April, 2012 and will be featured on film festival circuits throughout the southeast in hopes of achieving wider release, nationwide.

“Uncle Bob’s Leg” is a black comedy about a man who loses a leg in a hunting accident and what his favorite niece and nephew do to help him deal with his loss. You won’t want to miss it!

Uncle Bob is portrayed by Fort Walton Beach resident, Bradford Jordan. Mr. Jordan lost a leg to gangrene after Hurricane Katrina. He was sought out by Stephen Baker to read the script for any tips and for political correctness, then immediately asked to play the part.

Here’s a little preview of Bradford in action with Brenda and the Go Cats singing “One Legged Man” for the movie “Uncle Bob’s Leg”

If you’re looking for professional video production in Fort Walton Beach, Destin, Navarre or Pensacola and beyond, Revive Media Services has the talent and equipment to deliver top quality video for your website, promo or tv commercial.

Many thanks to Melissa J. Thurber for taking these on-set stills of everyone in action.

Earlier this month Lynn Dominique, Revive Media Services and Shelley Normand, Superior Residences had the honor of attending the International Conference on WWII “From Pearl Harbor to Guadalcanal” in New Orleans, LA. They went in support of 4 of the 5 remaining USAF “Doolittle Raiders” who attended and spoke about their harrowing raid on Tokyo following the attack on Pearl Harbor in December, 1941.

Lynn and Shelley became close friends of Lt. Col. Cole, USAF, during a 2008 reunion event held at Eglin, AFB in Fort Walton Beach and have remained in close contact with the “Raiders” ever since, participating in events and book signings in the southeast whenever possible.

Revive Media Services’ web design team and video production group salute and support our local military personnel, past and present.

To learn more about the Doolittle Raiders check out their website.
