The Six Elements of Our Digital Marketing Foundry
Social Media Marketing
Social is a channel, not a strategy. Therefore, it needs a strategy. If you build it, they won't necessarily come. Whether you're just starting out with social media or are ready to take your social media marketing efforts big time, let us help.
No more random acts of advertising. Your ad dollars deserve a little more love. We build and iterate quickly, based on statistically significant data. Our social, display, retargeting and mobile advertising campaigns work together to make every advertising dollar count.
Getting found online is no longer about shady link-exchange networks and unreadable, keyword-stuffed dribble. Google and others now recognize and reward regularly published share-able content. Let us build the content marketing machine you've always wanted.
Search Engine Optimization
Many SEO agencies promise quick results, but actually harm your rankings over time. We perform keyword analyses and follow them up with creating relevant quality content and making sure search engines know about it. It's more effort, but yields lasting results.
Word of Mouth
88% of people trust online reviews as much as they trust recommendations from personal contacts. Word of mouth can happen on its own, but it can also be accelerated and amplified to drive more business, earn more trust and get more people talking.
We craft beautiful email marketing pieces that look great across any device. Multi-variate testing ensures we create the best possible content to encourage action. Email marketing isn't dead. It just needed a few dance partners.
"Nate and his entire team were a dream to work with. Not only did they build a beautiful website that was representative of our organization, they went to painstaking lengths to ensure that it was customized on the back end and manageable for our staff after hand off. Additionally, our marketing campaign was significantly more successful thanks to their insight and guidance. I cannot speak highly enough of Onward and would recommend them to anyone for any and all website and marketing needs."
Managing Editor, Wines Down South
"Nate is one of the top professionals in today's travel and tourism industry. As a veteran journalist, editor, publisher, broadcaster and TV producer, I rate him right at the very top of those I deal with coast to coast. His intelligence, zest for life, loyalty to Florida and depth of knowledge are rare qualities in the PR and marketing arena. Wherever he goes, there will follow an immediate benefit. My credentials are solid gold in my profession. I rarely endorse anyone. However, Nate Long is exceptional."
Communications Manager at Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau
"Nate Long is a results-driven professional who has demonstrated his commitment to succeed at whatever task he is given."
Public Relations Manager, VISIT FLORIDA
"I've known Nate Long since early 2009. Nate is the person I went to when I needed to troubleshoot how social media can impact, enhance and broaden my efforts in the marketplace. He has a talent for guiding people through the changing horizon of PR. He's often one step ahead of what's next. Nate will remain on my quick dial for best practices in social media and PR. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Nate will realize that his passion and commitment make for a dynamic combination that raises the level of quality for the task at hand."
Director, Wakulla County Tourist Development Council
"I would highly recommend Nate to anyone who needs assistance/services related to social media marketing. He is highly skilled in this area. Additionally, he has an attitude of service that goes well beyond his duties. I will be calling on him again to keep us up to date on the rapidly changing social media environment."

Working with him while serving on VISIT FLORIDA's Industry Relations Committee, he consistently proved himself to be personable, professional and delivered projects that were thorough and well thought out. He knew when to ask the right questions to bring about a creative solution that engaged the entire group. Nate is an asset to any company."
Presient/CEO, Florida Attractions Association
"Nate has helped move Florida’s tourism industry into a more integrated acceptance and application of technology in marketing our state’s destinations. He is eager and accessible to help provide one-on-one assistance when questions regarding either emerging technology or benefit execution require a hands-on response. Nate has served the Sunshine State well, and he'll no-doubt continue to push the envelope to help move his clients toward a more integrated marketing and service strategy."
