Although it has officially been spring for a few weeks now, the warm weather has just arrived in Richmond and it looks like it's here to stay. That can only mean one thing: time to get out and enjoy our city! When we're not building websites, composing witty social media posts, or erecting giant banner stands, the team at Addison Clark loves to explore the many sites that Richmond has to offer. We asked some team members to share their favorite outdoor spots around Richmond. Let us know if we missed a favorite spot of yours!
5 things you should be doing on social media:
What do you do at Addison Clark?
I'm a marketing manager. I'm brand new and still learning what to do!

Unread notifications on my phone (or other people’s for that matter…how have you not read 1,300 emails???)
If your business has a Facebook Page, you may have noticed a new, strategically placed button on your cover photo. The call-to-action button is Facebook's newest feature that was just recently rolled out to all Facebook Page users. The button allows Page admins to select from seven different call-to-actions, like Shop Now, Contact Us, or Sign Up, that can be linked to destinations on or off Facebook. The goal is to help Pages drive business objectives by encouraging their fans to perform a desired action. Call-to-action buttons are free to use and easy to create. Follow our step-by-step guide below to get started.

It's a brand new year and time for a fresh start!
If you felt like your social media game was lagging in 2014, now is the time to make changes. You may even be surprised at how little you need to do in order to improve your social media presence this year. Sometimes a small change can make the biggest difference.

Halloween is the one time of year when being outlandish is actually the norm.

If you've ever been on Pinterest then you know how easy it is to get sucked into the mindless cycle of repinning content. First you see a gorgeous kitchen remodel, so you pin that to your Homes board. Then you see a fun Halloween craft, so you pin that to your DIY board. Before you know it, you're pinning recipes that you'll probably never make and outfits that you'll probably never wear. You are pinning for the sake of pinning with no goal or purpose in mind. While this may be okay if you're just trying to waste a few minutes on your personal Pinterest account, it can be very unbeneficial if you're trying to build a following for your business.
