Orangeville Graphic Design & Marketing

Green Monkey Creative is a boutique design & marketing studio located in the heart of Dufferin County. Our focus is on marketing strategy and consulting, professional graphic design, social media marketing, photography, videography and website design & development.

We help people, businesses and organizations succeed through strategic thinking, creative ideas and good design.

Creative Services

Design isn’t about making things look pretty: effective design should entice and persuade. A smartly designed website should direct your visitors to take action, like clicking a ‘buy’ button for instance. A well-crafted brochure should compel your readers to keep turning pages. Professional graphic design has the potential to deliver measurable results for any business: small or large.

Website Services

We have a vast portfolio of websites that we have designed or re-designed for clients in many different sectors. We can help you pick the right platform whether you are just starting up with a limited budget, or need a refresh of your current site. Our goal is to always plan out the best course of action when it comes to your website and plan accordingly.

Social Media Management

Social media is a central part of many people’s lives and it continues to grow. Now, this ever-evolving change has gone past being merely a platform to interact with people and has become an integral part of marketing strategies for businesses of all sizes. As a small business, leveraging the power of these channels can help build relationships, understand market demands and use content to influence your target market.

Marketing Consulting & Strategy

Are you finding yourself just a little confused and don’t know where to start when it comes to conducting business online? In today’s world, we are surrounded by smartphones, Google, social media and websites – which is changing every day. In the current world, nothing stays the same for very long and leaves you a couple of choices: adapt and thrive or stay in one place and say goodbye to any growth or change.

The question that we get asked the most is "How often should we be posting?"  Posting less often increases the perceived value of each post - meaning each post will perform better because posting so much where you take over your follower's feed is a little invasive and may turn off your audience.  Remember content is king, so make sure you are posting relevant, informative and fun content! (And don't forget your hashtags)  #smallbizmarketing #socialmediamarketingtip #graphicdesignlife #socialmediamarketingstrategy #socialmedia101 #socialmediaexperts #socialmediabranding #orangeville #ontario #dufferincounty

When is the last time you blogged?  Do you know why should be blogging?  A couple of reasons: it is FANTASTIC for SEO - so make sure you write things that are relative to your audience and your brand.  Then when they are searching on Google, your page will come up.  Secondly, it shows you know your stuff.  Talking about the things you do to prove to a new client that you have some action under that hood is great for your brand.  So get blogging!!!  #socialmediamarketingtip #marketingstrategist #marketinghelp #instagramtipsforbusiness #brandinspiration #brandingtips #buildyourbrand #smallbusinesstips #marketingideas #smallbusinessmarketing #growyourbusiness #orangeville #greenmonkeycreative

It is so beneficial to be different as a brand as you need to be when it comes to content. But one unifying aspect is that should be the same throughout every campaign - social, ads, etc is your brand voice.  You don't have to select just one tone, but be consistent.  If you are a fun brand, convey that.  Remember your brand is your personality - think of the brand personalities of some major brands like Apple, Shopify, Nike, etc.  #socialmediamarketingtip #marketingstrategist #marketinghelp #instagramtipsforbusiness #brandinspiration #brandingtips #buildyourbrand #smallbusinesstips #marketingideas #smallbusinessmarketing #growyourbusiness #orangeville #greenmonkeycreative

Imagine purchasing a car, getting in and thinking you can drive when you haven't put any gas in it.  It will just sit there.  Similar to your car - your website can't have the "gas" to get it moving if you haven't even examined your SEO strategy.  Remember, SEO is linked to the keywords that users search on Google - so those very important words are not on your site (blogs, content, etc), then you are missing a key component.  #socialmediamarketingtip #marketingstrategist #marketinghelp #instagramtipsforbusiness #brandinspiration #brandingtips #buildyourbrand #smallbusinesstips #marketingideas #smallbusinessmarketing #growyourbusiness #orangeville #greenmonkeycreative
Did you know that more than 200 million people visit at least one business profile a day on Instagram?  Every month, 130 million users tap on a shoppable post to learn more about a product or to make a purchase.  Instagram is a hotbed for influencer marketing and provides brands (like you!) with more ways to connect with new and potential audiences and keeps your current audience engaged.  This makes Instagram particularly viable for brands - especially those with an e-commerce element. (and don't forget to set up your Instagram and Facebook shops.....)  #instagram #ecommerce #socialmediamarketingtip #marketingstrategist #marketinghelp #instagramtipsforbusiness #brandinspiration #brandingtips #buildyourbrand #smallbusinesstips #marketingideas #smallbusinessmarketing #growyourbusiness #orangeville #greenmonkeycreative #socialmediamarketingtip #marketingstrategist #marketinghelp #instagramtipsforbusiness #brandinspiration #brandingtips #buildyourbrand #smallbusinesstips #marketingideas #smallbusinessmarketing #growyourbusiness #orangeville #greenmonkeycreative
