How does this relate to business?

All enterprises, large and small, corporate and retail, need to focus marketing and operations on handheld devices:

  • To avoid miniaturisation of a standard website, and adapt to the size and orientation of handheld device screens, the online presence must be built with responsive design
  • To maximise visual impact and propel your brand forward, videos (of between 1’00” and 2’00” duration) are the most effective. Search engine optimisation (SEO) is also best served with video, as Google ranking is considerably higher for content presented in video, than the identical content in text and images only
  • To maximise community engagement, client advocacy and prospect opportunities and SEO, social media platforms must be created and curated. If your business does not have the in-house resources to moderate, generate and curate content, an external supplier should be engaged to train or supply this service for your brand

Digital Tsunami can assist in all these. Our executives each have over 3 decades in video production, ALL our online solutions are now built in responsive design, and for many years, we’ve been successfully integrating our client brands in social media.

We listen carefully to your profile, requirements and objectives, propose appropriate solutions which will achieve your goals, and implement online and offline collaterals to effectively promote your brand.
