How We’re Keeping Cool This Summer

It’s here again, the most wonderful time of the year if you’re an ice-cream man or a gnat. The rest of us are miserable and picturing how we’d look if we buzzed all our hair off. Even the women. With that in mind, here are the four ways we’re beating the heat this summer. 1) […]

Happy Father’s Day

Why We’re So Gosh Darn Happy

A few days ago I was browsing Fortune.com, checking out the point indexes on my mutual stocks and chatting with my financial advisor, Ira Roth. Or trying to anyway. I get the feeling he doesn’t respect me as much as his clients 59.5 and older. It was there that I came across the following article: […]

St. Paddy’s Day Shennanigans

Fun fact… the term “Infomedians” actually refers to a group of Irish web developers from the Birmingham region of Alabama.

We even had green shirts made with lucky four leaf clovers on them to show our […]

Now Enrollment Advisors is growing even more, expanding their Railroad Park location at the old National Biscuit Company building (aka the Nabisco building) to more than double their total existing footprint.

We Love you, So Here's A Special Valentine!

It’s Valentine’s Day! Well, actually it’s Friday the 13th, but at Infomedia, we’re ignoring that nonsense and pretending today is Valentine’s instead. So, we all wore our red and brought our candy hearts and were going to prance around singing love songs all day…

5 SEO Techniques for Local Businesses

We talk a lot about SEO (Search Engine Optimization), and it’s because SEO can have a big impact on the bottom line of your business. Google often changes their algorithm, making SEO more tricky — some of these Google’s algorithm changes are small, and some are really big. The real winner in SEO strategy these days? Going local. We’ve seen this trend coming for some time, but Google’s local focus is only growing as people search more locally and use their smartphones to search.

Stand-up Comedy & Knock-Knock Jokes: 6 Tips for Better Product Copywriting

When it comes to copywriting, being funny and relatable can go a long way. Our copywriter breaks down 6 tips for better copy with examples from Taziki’s online menu: “It’s a good idea for companies to create copy with a personality. It makes them more relatable to customers, and it makes their products more memorable — if I can get you to laugh at a chicken salad joke, you’re more likely to remember the chicken salad. The key to making this strategy work, though, is to be sure the product information is clear; it doesn’t matter if your customers get the joke if they forget what the product is.”

Birmingham Wins the World Games!

News broke this morning that our own Birmingham, Alabama will host the 2021 World Games, and we’re excited. We’re also a little confused about what the World Games actually are, but let’s start with excited. These games could be a really good thing for Birmingham businesses because they’ll bring in tourism (and a little bit of fun), and that will boost our economy.

The 6 Januariest Things You Can Do With Your Site This, Uh, January

So January is kind of a bland and boring month. If it was a person it’d be Charlie Brown, if he was first magically transformed from a cartoon to a human. Kind of a waste of magic, but whatever.

There isn’t one huge, overarching theme to the month like Christmas for December or my birthday for February (the 15th, save gift ideas for the comment section). On the one hand, that makes it difficult to write a cohesive post for the month. On the other hand, deadlines exist. So here are the most relevant things you can do with your website before the Tyler’s Birthday Season rush starts next month.
