Over 90% of design/builds we speak with have an enormous problem with attracting, finding, and keeping labor. Whether it’s the H2B visa problems or finding local employees - this is one of the biggest pain-points. With Facebook and Instagram - you can get a little help with finding labor this year. While we can’t promise you that the employees you may find on these two platforms will always show up Mondays and completely transform your workforce problems, they may provide a little help.
Halstead Media completely transformed the website to a less text heavy, image forward design. A layout that appeals to all the different customer audiences that GoldLeaf wants to attract. The homepage includes a rotating banner, a review section for peace of mind, as well as call-out to a financing program. See the new website
This design/build company reached out to Halstead to help improve their Facebook Advertising performance and generate leads. They had already been doing their own Facebook advertising for a couple of year, but were looking for some professional advertising help from someone who understood their design/build industry.
After presenting a Unilock Authorized Contractor Seminar, we met Northern Lights Landscaping. Since then, our relationship with them has allowed us to redesign their website, increase their search rankings, and help find qualified leads with Facebook Ads.
Halstead designed a brand new website to showcase outdoor lighting company’s profile and services. Our messaging and the images we selected aligned to the more affluent market in the company’s service area. The key messages were: solving problems as well as promoting luxury services (e.g. smartphone controls) that aren’t necessarily solving a problem. The style is sophisticated and professional.
A landscape lighting company based out of Fishkill, NY, was a brand-new entity that lacked a social media presence. Previously part of an established landscape design and build company, this lighting company was spun out to become a separate division with its own distinct brand. As part of this effort, a new website and Facebook presence were a must. However, while the landscape design and build parent company was known for installing outdoor lighting for years, the newly branded business was new to the space and had no community branding. The company needed to assert itself with homeowners in the region, to generate leads for high-end outdoor lighting projects.
Our new logo represents a strong foundation, sturdy support, and appealing design. Much like the hardscape industry, these attributes are at the very core of our business. To many reading this, it may look like just a few lines framing our company name. And that’s the point. We wanted our logo to be straightforward and direct. We wanted it to more closely connect with our exclusive client base – design/builds, dealers, and landscaping product manufacturers.
