Spring has Sprung – April’s Digital Marketing Update

Spring has Sprung…

    Sometimes it snows in April


    Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
    Sometimes I wish life was never ending
    And all good things, they say, never last
    – Prince Rogers Nelson

There is a reason why the great artist from Minnesota wrote a song about it snowing in April. It’s because it’s true!

In this month’s digital update, we look at Small Biz utilizing agencies, Google’s March update, Behavioral Signals impact on local rankings and more.

Superior Glove, maker of premium work gloves

Superior Glove, maker of premium work gloves.

Superior Glove is one of North America’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of work gloves, having been in business since 1910. While we haven’t been doing digital marketing services for them since their inception, we have been working with Joe Geng and the Superior Marketing Team since April 2005.

While Superior is certainly benefiting from a very successful digital marketing campaign that includes SEO and PPC marketing, their success is founded on their exceptionally made work gloves and personal protection equipment. Their website recently went through a major redesign adding a new glove selector tool, helping visitors find the perfect work glove to meet their specific needs.
