What We Do For Our Clients

Establishing Presence

Establishing Presence

Today’s business must be founded with a digital end in mind. From website development to listing distribution and reputation management, it is essential that key components of your business are in place from the start. Proper setup, tagging and benchmarking give business owners a clear understanding of where their business lives in the digital landscape.

Developing Your Brand

Developing your brand

After the birth of your business online, your brand must be developed, defined and distributed through your website, search engines and social channels to your target audience. Content development, search optimization and community management tell the story of who you are, how you are different from your competitors, and why customers should choose your product or service.

Amplifying Your Voice

Amplifying your voice

Once you have established a presence and developed your brand, it is time to shout from the mountaintops. This is where smart, targeted digital marketing drives and converts traffic from chosen channels to your site, your phone, or your brick and mortar location. With budgets determined and success metrics established, growing revenue through paid channels is a must for long-term success.

What Our Clients are Saying

“In building our digital presence for The Preserve, we sought to partner with a firm with broad capabilities. We chose Gig Strategic through a vetted process, and have been more than happy with the results. They have helped us with everything, from website and logo design, to social media, to digital advertising. “

Chad Rowe

Sr. VP of Business Development, The Preserve

I was a bit lost when it came to marketing my Optometry office. I had pursued two separate digital marketing companies with high prices and inadequate performance. After starting to work with James at Gig Strategic, I saw quick returns on my marketing efforts and have had a steady increase in both my online presence and my patient volume ever since.

Dr. Anthony Zarella

Owner, Horizon Family Eye Care

“James has helped us take advantage of the online marketplace.  We have been able to dramatically grow and track our monthly lead volume through his digital marketing solutions.  I would highly recommend any business owner sit down with James to truly learn how to succeed online.”

Gig Strategic’s knowledge of the digital marketing world is phenomenal. Their means to an end is far from singular. As James is building your digital presence he will be simultaneously working on branding and targeting in order to generate maximum digital exposure for your company. I highly recommend that you entrust your digital future in the capable hands of Gig Strategic.

Leading Full Service Digital Marketing Agency in Charlottesville

When it comes to finding the right company with which to work, Gig Strategic has you covered. It’s never easy to know where to turn, so you must do plenty of research and come up with a few options.

The problem is that many businesses don’t understand the elements of business branding, which leads them to think they can do it themselves or work with any company. However, it’s not just about branding.

You also need an effective marketing strategy to make sure that you are reaching all the markets that you should. We can help you come up with the right plan to meet all of your needs.

The consulting firm you choose should understand the brand, the goals, and the dreams of the business owner. We do that by listening, communicating, and selecting the right methods.
