Content & Strategy
With our deep listening process, we create powerful content that motivates people and builds community. This influences your brand strategy, social media management, email marketing and every piece of your funnel along the way.
Design & Develop
Every site The Nine designs is customized from the ground up. We build solutions that are tailored to our clients' every need. You won’t find Wordpress templates, third party plug-ins or the like behind the pixels of our projects.
Our process has developed over 15 years of experience with a team that is dedicated to your project until it’s finished, collaborating with you every step of the way. That’s what we do. Our team is part web wizard, part well-oiled machine. We know that communication is the key to any successful project and we have systems and processes that keep you informed, allowing space for feedback and ensuring that deadlines are met along the way.
The Nine uses the latest technologies to keep our platform, Caboose, cutting edge. With over 1 million downloads and over 1,000 version upgrades, it just keeps getting better.
Host & Maintain
Meet Caboose! The Nine has built our own Content Management System (CMS) called Caboose. With our love for Rails, we felt it only right to give the back-end of our websites such a name. Caboose is a robust and powerful CMS that allows you to build and edit pages with a drag & drop WYSIWYG interface. In addition to easily building pages, you’ll be able to manage user accounts, social media connections, blog posts, calendar events, fonts, and other settings in the admin interface. When we’re finished building your site, you will be provided with a Caboose admin guide and login credentials for your website. We’re also happy to meet in person or do a video conference call to provide more in-depth training.
Our hosting is state of the art and uses the latest technologies to ensure your site is secure, healthy and always running. We use Heroku to power Caboose. It’s a platform built on Amazon’s cloud infrastructure. It is simple to use when your site is just starting to be developed or once it is running with a high concurrency and sustained load. Like Rails, Heroku uses conventions to make your site secure and scalable as it grows. The cloud promises lower operating costs which allow us to provide you with the greatest service at the lowest price. All assets such as images, videos, PDF files, etc. are uploaded to Amazon S3 Web Services, which provides reliability and security that are industry standards in data storage.
Market & Grow
We want every marketing dollar you spend to be a trackable investment in the growth of your company. Our digital marketing process will give you a strong foundation for your online presence, the structure you need for making good content and communicating with customers, and a growth strategy that amplifies your message to your ideal customers. We provide clear reporting and monthly progress reports on what’s working and where our efforts are being spent.
Over the past decade, we have heard the voice of our customers and know what really matters to them when it comes to their digital marketing. Clicks and impressions are great for brand awareness, but they don’t add to the bottom line of your business in a trackable way. That’s why The Nine focuses on conversions and lead generation. Trackable results that lead to actual potential customers, e-commerce purchases and ultimately, profit. We have two main plans that we offer our clients. One being an all-encompassing marketing consulting package and the other being a lead generation focused campaign.
Unlike other platforms, you are in charge of the responsive aspects of your design. The best part is, it’s all with drag-n-drop!
Drag & Drop
Did we mention that already? There is something about simplicity that is missing from Enterprise platforms. With Caboose CMS, you are getting the simplicity you’ve always wanted.
