Is Your Website ADA Compliant?


ADA Compliance Helps You Avoid Penalties While Boosting Audience Reach and Engagement

Connecting with potential customers online is pivotal in today's economy, where 85 percent of consumers conduct online research before purchasing.

In February 2011, the Department of Justice passed its first ADA Standards for Accessible Design, creating guidelines for website accessibility.

One Firefly Thought Leadership: Marketing Is Your Insurance Policy

One Firefly Thought Leadership: Marketing Is Your Insurance Policy

An integrated marketing strategy protects you today, tomorrow, and in the future

Would you feel safe driving your car without car insurance? Would you feel secure running your integration firm without business liability insurance? The answer is probably a very firm “no.” 

The primary purpose of any insurance policy is to protect your person, business, or property against the possibility of a future event that leads to loss or damages. It’s a risk management tool that ensures you have safeguards in place to support you when the unexpected happens. 

Similarly, investing in strategic digital marketing offers you short and long-term benefits that can help your business thrive during the good times, weather the bad times, and maintain an active online presence every day in between. 

Just like your car, health, and business insurance policies are developed with coverages that meet your specific needs, One Firefly can help you find the right services to create an integrated marketing strategy that keeps your business moving forward today, tomorrow, and in the future.

Are You Giving Away The Keys To Your Kingdom?


Why Owning Your Website's Google Analytics Account Is Even More Critical In 2020

What Is Google Analytics?

While not something you may look at on a day-to-day basis, Google Analytics is the single most important tool for insight on website performance and visitor data. This free, sophisticated platform provides useful metrics on how people are visiting your site, how long they are staying, and where they are navigating. 

How Does It Work?

When a Google Analytics tracking code or javascript snippet is added to your website, it collects data in real time – so as the page is loaded by a visitor, a hit is transmitted to the platform with its associated data. This data, along with certain data collected by platforms such as Google Search Console and Google Adwords is then organized into your single Analytics account.

One of the biggest advantages of actively collecting this data? You will forever have access to the historical record of the performance of your website which now can be easily juxtaposed to the changes in marketing efforts that you may be implementing.
