Hi there,

Canada's unemployment rate is at near record lows - and while that's great for the economy, it can create challenges for small and medium businesses as they struggle to find new employees in a competitive market. Are you trying to recruit for new positions right now? Are you seeing an abundance or an absence of quality candidates?

There are different strategies you can employ to help attract the right kind of job applicants. 

  • Defining and communicating your company culture to potential employees.
  • Setting up your brand for recruitment, such as creating a company video or updates to your website.
  • Updating your social media profiles, especially LinkedIn, to support recruitment.
  • Getting your job posting everywhere that's relevant, and utilizing digital media to extend its reach to candidates.
  • Knowing what candidates want, such as flexibility for schedules and work spaces.

New Website for Snowmobilers of Manitoba

Snowmobilers of Manitoba (or Snoman) is a non-profit organization representing 53 snowmobiling clubs in Manitoba, and the member clubs maintain and groom over 13,000 km of trails. We were happy to help them update their website.

The Challenge
Snoman discovered that 60-80% of all the web traffic on their website was on mobile devices, yet their website was not mobile responsive. They also wanted help digitizing some forms and processes to cut down on administrative work and make things easier for their members.  

 The Solution
We designed and created a new responsive website for Snoman, allowing users to easily access information on mobile devices. We also designed the website to help Snoman build a community amongst snowmobilers, communicate to its clubs and members, and support economic growth for businesses affiliated with the snowmobiling lifestyle.  This was achieved through:

  • Improved content management for their internal team.
  • Streamlining information on their website and making it easier for website visitors to find. 
  • Reorganizing and presenting website content that showcases tourism opportunities and builds the snowmobile community in Manitoba.

We also helped them digitize some forms to make things more convenient for members. Many of these forms were handwritten previously, meaning someone had to input all the information into a digital format. These new forms will save their team hours of work. These changes also resulted in digitization of membership cards that now get sent automatically via email on a yearly basis,  the ability for clubs to update their information online with a better editing experience and more.

New Webinar: Why Your Need a CRM

We're hosting a free webinar on June 15 at 11 am MT all about CRMs. Customer relationship management (CRM) is technology that allows your business to manage all of your company's interactions and communication with customers. A CRM helps businesses better organize and access their customer data, which in turn leads to better customer relationships, loyalty and retention.

Shockingly, CRM technology still doesn't have the impact on the industry that it deserves. Around 22% of salespeople say they don't know what a CRM is, and 40% of companies don't use a CRM at all. These companies often rely on spreadsheets and email for storing customer data.

Tune into our webinar to learn why your business needs a CRM, reasons why your CRM isn't working, and tactics to get the most out of a CRM and customer data. Click here to sign up!
