Happy 15th Birthday, 9th sphere
On July 1, 2012 9th sphere will be turning fifteen years old! That's fifteen years of custom website design, web development and internet marketing, offering best practices to our clients, and prioritizing quality and longevity. This year has been an exciting one for us! The biggest change was a change of scenery - after nearly ten years, 9th sphere packed up its Richmond Hill office and relocated to midtown Toronto at Yonge and St Clair. The new location provides greater access to prospects and clients, as well as the large pool of creative talent that we are looking to add to our growing team. We have added new faces to our team and are benefitting as an organization from the wealth of knowledge, expertise, and professionalism they bring to us. Shortly after relocating to Toronto, we redesigned our corporate website to bring it up to our standards. A new design, refreshed content, updated client gallery and case studies, and a mobile version, were areas that had the most improvements. In December, 9th sphere was awarded two silver awards at the 2011 W3C Awards, which raises our total awards received to date to twelve. We have also been able to build upon our strong reputation by speaking at conferences and encouraging the growth and knowledge sharing of other industry professionals. Earlier this month, Ezra Silverton, President and Founder of 9th sphere, spoke at SES in Toronto. We also had one of our Project Managers, Alex Young, speak to the audience at SES Toronto about the delicate balance of website updates alongside SEO initiatives. Some other exciting projects we worked on include creating news themes and coordinating with the WordPress team to fix issues within the latest WordPress release. We also were accepted as a beta tester for Twitter's new ad platform, an accomplishment that allows us first access to the platform and the chance to experiment before it is released to the public. Within our Internet Marketing team, we have invested time on some new SEO tools, including Google's new tools that will help provide more insights and improve our client’s online marketing campaign performance. Despite a decade and a half in business, the opportunities to grow, learn, and share never cease. The dynamism of this industry keeps us on our toes and presents us with new hurdles all the time. 9th sphere continues to invest in new technological solutions and remains committed to staying on top of relevant information within the industry by taking the challenges head-on. We believe our fifteenth year will be our best yet, and are looking forward to sharing in the growth and success of our clients!
