Effective marketing is a full-time job, but it can be made a lot more manageable with the help of your employees. Adding staff to your marketing efforts has many benefits including potentially reaching a wider audience, improving exposure, and giving your company a more personal touch without adding a bunch of zeros at the end of your marketing budget.
With 2016 squarely in the rearview mirror, we can all begin to look toward all the promise 2017 has to offer.

Writing landing pages, service pages, and blogs is easier said than done. If you’ve ever tried to write the content for a website, you know what we’re talking about. There are a lot of variables that come into play. Word count, tone, vocabulary, design requirements, SEO and sometimes there are even things we can and cannot legally write. At Comrade Web Agency, we ask that clients send us “bare content” prior to completing any copywriting work. Obtaining this content from clients allows the copywriter to fully understand what you want to portray on the page. With this information, they can then turn that content into beautifully sculpted content for your site.
At Comrade Chicago Web Agency, we are surrounded by flora. This serves a dual purpose.
