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.

One of the most basic ways to advertise on Facebook and Instagram is to boost pots.  Do this to increase the ordinary reach of y our most important posts - new launch, special offer, big events, company milestone etc.  This is an easy way to create instant Facebook ads without any of the detailed customization options available through the main Facebook ads tool.  #smallbizmarketing #socialmediamarketingtip #graphicdesignlife #socialmediamarketingstrategy #socialmedia101 #socialmediaexperts #socialmediabranding #orangeville #ontario #dufferincounty

Who doesn't love a great Farmer's Market?  The Orangeville Farmer's Market logo got a tiny bit of a facelift this year...and we love it!  The Farmer's Market is still on every Saturday till Thanksgiving, so go check it out!
Our audiences are expecting more from us and we need to look at trust-building with the content you post.  Be authentic (this is key!!) if you audience knows that you listen to them, and you act on what they say, your audience will trust you more.  Remember, if your social media is more about helping customers than selling to them, it will prove to be more effective - so make sure you are listening and engaging!  #socialmediamarketingtip #marketingstrategist #marketinghelp #instagramtipsforbusiness #brandinspiration #brandingtips #buildyourbrand #smallbusinesstips #marketingideas #smallbusinessmarketing #growyourbusiness #orangeville #greenmonkeycreative
## Have you heard of a ladder strategy when it comes to hashtags? ##  Don't you notice when you go to use hashtags it has the number of people/posts using that specific hashtag?  If you are always choosing the one with the most hits - you are missing the mark!!!! Here is a sneak peek into the hashtag strategy from SocialHustlr (and a great resource to get your hashtag strategy down!)  If you are using 30 hashtags, here is how you should be breaking them out:  To rank:  5 of TINY (5-50K)
6 of SMALL (50-100K)  For exposure:
9 of MEDIUM (100-250K) 
7 of MEDIUM-BIG (250-500K)  For Exposure/Categorization:
2 of BIG (500K-1M)
1 of LARGE (1M+)  Needs some help, send us a message!  #socialmediamarketingtip #marketingstrategist #marketinghelp #instagramtipsforbusiness #brandinspiration #brandingtips #buildyourbrand #smallbusinesstips #marketingideas #smallbusinessmarketing #growyourbusiness #orangeville #greenmonkeycreative
