About GraceNote Media

We are founded on the principles that make successful marketing campaigns

At GraceNote Media, we believe in providing businesses what they need to be successful. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to online marketing. Each business has a unique goal and target audience. A digital marketing campaign should be designed around the unique attributes of those target audiences. Our process involves an in-depth analysis and research of every target market and then a recommendation of which services will be most appropriate to that campaign. This ensures that we can provide each business (regardless of size) with the most effective digital marketing mix possible.

  • SEO


    Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of connecting you with your online audience through a set of keywords. If integrated correctly into your digital marketing strategy, SEO can be highly effective at driving new business and connecting with your existing customers.

  • Design


    A good design says it all. If the design of your marketing materials doesn't match your message, your campaign is ineffective. Furthermore, the design of your website should match your letterhead, business cards, etc... We'll create a design that not only speaks a highly-converting message to your audience but can be applied to all mediums.

  • Online Marketing


    What is online marketing? All the terminology can be confusing. Simply stated, online marketing is Connecting YOU with your Online Customers.

GNM will put together a custom online marketing strategy that meets your goals and objectives while still meeting your ROI and budgetary goals. Browse our services to learn more.

    Pay Per Click Advertising, or PPC, involves a bidding process against your competitors. Each time a visitor clicks on your advertisement, you Pay. This is a good strategy for some businesses, but it is a waste of money for others. How should you decide if PPC is right for your business? How much should you pay per click?

  • Retargeting


    Ever feel like you're being followed? Thats because you probably are!

Why SEO?


A lot of people are asking, "Why is SEO important?" or "Why do I need SEO?". Search Engine Optimization or "SEO" is the building block of any online marketing strategy. Think about it like this: You are offering something (a product or a service) to online customers. Online customers are searching for your product or service by using a set of keywords. SEO is the process of determining the exact keywords that people are using to search for your business and then making sure your website is able to be found. Matching YOU up with your CUSTOMERS.
