Another local business that we completed a new site for recently is Pellé Hair Salon. Marie was an independent hair stylist, but recently purchased her own hair salon in downtown Vancouver. In addition to setting her up with a new site, we've started her on Yelp and Google Local - essential elements for the marketing plan of any local business with a storefront. Our next step is to experiment with tools like Foursquare or Gowalla - to see if we can find a way to engage users of those tools.
Oh, we also partnered with BBN3/Vancouver - a video platform that lets businesses engage video journalists, documentary makers and other experienced video producers to create fun narrative documentary-style business videos (as opposed to old-skool corporate talking heads vids). See the video below.
