Silver Maple Ventures

(Posted on Aug 12, 2014 at 01:05PM by Steven Arsenault)

I am happy to announce the launch of a new website for our newest client – Silver Maple Ventures Inc. I’d like to hear what everyone thinks. http://www.silvermapleventures.ca/

Silver Maple Ventures Inc. is involved in the exciting and rapidly emerging Equity Crowd Funding space that is currently capturing global interest.

Equity Crowd Funding Silver Maple Ventures

Silver Maple Ventures Inc., is an Exempt Market Dealer (EMD) registered in the provinces of BC, Alberta, and Ontario. As an EMD, Silver Maple is unique, in that it has received approval from the BC Securities Commission to develop an online Equity Crowdfunding Portal. Today British Columbia is the only Province (or State for that matter) that true equity crowd funding is legal. Equity Crowd Funding (ECF) has been going for years in the UK, several countries in continental Europe and Australia. This disruptive industry is expected to come on strong here in North America over the coming years.

Our creative team’s goal was to forge something ‘new and striking’ in an industry that has eyes on it from many different perspectives. Clean lines were used for the ‘silver maple leaf’ logo with muted colors to achieve the desired look. This treatment then became the foundation for the current impressively realistic SVM logo with a 3D look.

Along with the branding we knew the look and feel had to be responsive and cutting edge. We used a relatively new feature now used in high end web design called ‘parallax scrolling’ to achieve the dramatic image scroll technique of the home page. The feature allows a user to got forward and back with elements of the web site behaving as if one were ‘rolling back the video’. We carried this design to mobile and tablet devices with responsive programing that will ensure that Silver Maple Ventures looks spectacular no matter what device the user is viewing the website on. We carried the creative theme through to their social accounts like Facebook and Twitter.

Equity Crowd Funding - Silver Maple Ventures

The ‘engine’ that powers Silver Maple Ventures called for state of the art. We used our own OneBigBroadcast.com – an ‘all in one’ cloud powered content marketing platform that melds content, social, SEO, communities and commerce into and emanating one central spot. With the vast array of social marketing & SEO integration Silver Maple Ventures is empowered to take their marketing message to the next level using what we call Ground Zero Marketing principles.

What’s next? Content | Communities | Commerce. Our integrated communities provide companies with the horsepower to harness communities while broadcasting their content across social and the rest of the Internet to attract savvy investors. Stakeholders in the equity crowd funding space want to bet on more than a T-shirt or product when the invested company gets acquired for billions! That’s ultimately what equity crowd funding is all about while the companies attracting funding will have access to their own social and SEO marketing tools via their corporate profiles to further enhance their company’s online foot print.

Changing the Game for Event and Sports Marketing

For IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 8 December, Richmond, BC, Canada

BC Athletics (BCA) Recognizes OneBigBroadcast’s (OBB) Sports Marketing and Event Coordination Platform As Key Management Tool to Achieve BCA Mission.
 
The OneBigBroadcast Platform will be deployed during 2014 across six flagship events for BCA, implementing the OBB Event Management tool kit, Search & Social Media to the events, making them visible through real time video streaming across all of British Columbia and Canada .

At the annual BCA Awards Dinner held 7th of December, The Legion National Youth Track & Field Championships and OneBigBroadcast (OBB) were awarded the Executive of the Year Award for event design, management and execution, including the application of the OBB members Social Media platform and event management tools.

Brian McCalder, President and CEO of BC Athletics had this to say in presenting his award:

“Executive of the Year,” BC Athletics Annual Awards Program September 7, 2013
“The Legion National Youth Track & Field Championships are a window into the future Canadian Championship and Olympic Games Athletics Teams. To stage the Canadian Championship requires the coordination of national, provincial and local organizations, sponsors and volunteers.  To successfully present the Championships and keep all of the moving parts in order requires a Local Arrangements/Host Organization that has a vision, commitment and delivers.  

“Such was the case for the 2013 LAC of the Legion National Youth Track & Field Championships.  It was for the first time in the history of the Championships lead by the Ladies Auxiliary – BC/Yukon Command.  The LAC not only raised almost 1.12 million dollars in Cash and Value-In-Kind support but brought the Championships to the people of Canada through a Social Media and grassroots campaign using a new Event Management Content Creation and Capture platform from OneBigBroadcast, a WebStager Company.  

“The platform and tools included archiving the events through a mentored team of Videographers, aged 13-17, and social bloggers reaching across Canada and to a global audience of young aspiring Olympians from Brazil, Russia, India, China and the European Union countries.  The Championships reconnected Alumni and friends of this 73 year old event, opening a new chapter in the storied history of the Legion involvement with Track & Field in Canada.”

OneBigBroadcast.com’s Sports Marketing Platform combines layers of applications and social media marketing tools to raise visibility for any event while enhancing sponsor value through massive distribution and exposure.  A key component is a unique community portal where fans, athletes and sponsors have access to their own private member-only profiles, social marketing tools, blogs, and galleries to report their own event experiences and share their own stories and experiences. Each individual can connect directly via special programs to their own social networks sharing their own views of the event on a every level: individual, team, friends and family, and the world in general. The combined community attracts massive visibility from a fan’s or community perspective. While delivering content the event becomes a continuous online production. Watch events transpire live and immerse yourself in the experience of other members. Become a part of the Celebration community and share in a new movement of social networking and technology.

Another key component used to report on the event in real time and raise sponsor value are the social casting tools used by the event’s exclusive social casting team. This layer of content distribution spans the event while social casting team’s photographers, videographers, bloggers and reporters are covering the event from a multi faceted perspective in areas of the even only they have access. The platform is used to schedule content, display images, video and blogs while special mobile applications report on event details such as official results or delays in venues. The social casting team has the ability to create event content pages in seconds due to the platform’s intuitive design. As venues change or new perspective’s arise content containing video, images or any other content can be created for immediate display or scheduled for viewing by the public or private community.  

By harnessing social media marketing tools from a central dashboard the event’s web site becomes the focal point and distribution portal for massive content thanks to the social casting team, meanwhile the community portal builds an active community for years to come.
In a deeper data experience behind the scenes are analytics applications and big data appliances all focused on delivering rich data beyond what any other application platform can deliver.

Combined the platform delivers the most current information to enhance fan and sponsor value. Community members combined with the social casting team are the stars of an exclusive online production, all working behind the scenes to create the ultimate social experience for any event.

What Is Responsive Web Design?

(Posted on Dec 1, 2013 at 08:28AM by Lee Byard)

seo vancouverThis is the age of total access. Users are now streaming data from their laptops, smartphones and tablets. Every screen is flooded with organic content and Vancouver SEO strategies. Choosing responsive layouts is, therefore, essential.

A responsive layout is when a site favors a fluid grid, instantly resizing itself to any screen. It adapts text, images and links as needed, and it effortlessly adjusts to new servers.

This proves essential for digital marketing in Vancouver. Every site must be optimized for all mediums - from computer monitors to tablets. There are countless devices that can now access the Internet, and BC vendors must appease them all.

One Big Broadcast will show them how. Our Mobile Simulator allows every page to be read with ease, keeping customers in the data loop wherever they go.

Ignore SEO Companies That Promise The Impossible

(Posted on Dec 1, 2013 at 08:20AM by Lee Byard)

seo vancouverThere are countless marketing firms in Vancouver. Each of these firms wants your business, offering SEO tactics and design incentives. They each claim to be the best, and they each promise success.

Some, however, promise a success that simply can’t exist - the immediate domination of Google, Bing and other search engines.

When considering SEO firms in Vancouver, remember that the results won’t be instantaneous. Climbing through indexes takes time. Developing social strategies isn’t easy, and building a comprehensive collection of tags and keywords requires patience. This is not a fast process. It needs consistent posts and steady efforts.

Avoid any digital marketing firm that tells you otherwise.

One Big Broadcast understands how optimization and integration work - and we’ll share our Vancouver SEO strategies with you. Our promise isn’t one of impossible speeda, but instead of quality. Contact us today to learn more.

Avoid Flash Files For Total Optimization

(Posted on Dec 1, 2013 at 08:12AM by Lee Byard)

seo vancouverFlash files are common. They blend text and images together, streaming them through a series of vectors and bitmaps. The result is something dynamic.

It’s also something that undermines Vancouver SEO.

Do not generate important content through Flash. Search engines are unable to properly catalogue or index these files, confused by the special characters and geometric primitives. This promises weak optimization, and digital marketing in Vancouver becomes impossible.

Flash programs must be used sparingly. Use them as complements, not completions. This is the only way to web design for Vancouver customers, offering them straightforward HTML and occasional animations.

Contact One Big Broadcast to learn more.

Avoid Excessive HTML While Designing Vancouver Sites

(Posted on Dec 1, 2013 at 08:06AM by Lee Byard)

seo vancouverSize really does matter, especially when promoting Vancouver SEO.

HyperText Markup Language, known more commonly as HTML, is a vital component of web design. Through it every page can be transformed with a blend of text, images and typefaces.

Most BC businesses utilize this method, wanting to optimize their sites with a search-engine friendly style. Too often, however, do these same businesses forget that less truly is more.

An excess of HTML undermines digital marketing in Vancouver. Endless italics, underlines and URL encodings prove difficult to index. Web crawlers can’t properly translate the data and so they ignore it entirely. Pages are left unread and unranked.

It’s recommended, therefore, to use HTML sparingly. Don’t flood the text with tricks and techniques. Keep the ratio between special characters and content instead balanced. All posts should be organic and fact-heavy. Weave in markups carefully to achieve the best results.

Why Does SERP Matter To Vancouver Businesses

(Posted on Nov 24, 2013 at 07:22AM by Lee Byard)

vancouver seoOffering superior service isn’t enough to succeed online. Achieving a high SERP rating is also essential.

Digital marketing in Vancouver revolves around the idea of attracting strong search rankings. Why is this so important?

69% of all online users choose results found on the first page of their search engines. 40% of those individuals will only consider using the top three listed links, ignoring other sites entirely. Having a high SERP position guarantees more customers and more sales.

One Big Broadcast wants to help you gain both. Contact us today to learn more about SERP and how our Vancouver SEO tactics will rocket you to the top of Google, Bing and more.

vancouver seoThe Internet is filled with abbreviations. This is a shorthand culture, with entire paragraphs reduced to acronyms and slang. It’s a new language, and BC businesses have to master it.

The first phrase they need to translate? SERP.

Search Engine Results Page - more commonly called SERP - reflects a site’s ranking in hubs like Google or Bing. It’s composed of three things:

User Search Popularity

How often do users look for this specific product or service?

Organic Search

How much of the content is user-focused and relevant? Will web crawlers find a series of unwanted backdoor links and hidden texts or will they instead find optimized content? 

Paid Listings

Are the links sponsored? Is the site involved with a pay-per-click campaign? It’s worth noting that this is the least favorable option for both search engines and users.

SERP is the most important online abbreviation - because it represents a site’s overall success. One Big Broadcast understands this, which is why we utilize all available Vancouver SEO strategies to gain higher SERP rankings and stronger online results.

Creating Navigable SEO Sites

(Posted on Nov 24, 2013 at 06:59AM by Lee Byard)

vancouver seoA site that’s unorganized is a site that’s ignored.

Readers demand simplicity. All information must be easily, and neatly, presented. Navigation is key, and BC businesses who lack scannable pages will often find themselves losing customers and sales alike.

The design of a site is just as important as the content. Consider these One Big Broadcast suggestions to redefine your online style:

Employ text links
Use customized navigation buttons
Rely on image maps
Choose drop-down menus or site maps
Place pages under appropriate categories
Create uniform internal links

These elements transform every site from tedious to streamlined. Utilize them for superior digital marketing in Vancouver and to earn customer trust.

Contact One Big Broadcast for other design tips!

Making SEO Content Reader Friendly

(Posted on Nov 24, 2013 at 06:53AM by Lee Byard)

vancouver seoThe need for keywords and optimized content is essential. Successful sites attract web crawlers through persistent, and relevant, postings.

If those postings prove too difficult to read, however, then search engines will be the only ones to see them. Consumers will stay away.

Digital marketing in Vancouver requires simplicity. Optimized sites must be easy to read and easier to scan. This is a 140 character culture. Information must be paired down.

One Big Broadcast understands this, which is why we employ Vancouver SEO design tactics that allow users to quickly, and efficiently, find the information they need. We utilize elements like:

Short, content-rich paragraphs
Bulleted lists
Sans serif fonts for the mobile market
Headings and subheadings
Uniform fonts and alignments

Web designing for a Vancouver audience is necessary for local vendors. Target your customers through strong content and pleasant formatting. One Big Broadcast will show you how. Contact us today to learn more!
