YOUR BALTIMORE SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING AGENCY

Create genuine connections with your audience

Build Your Authentic Online Presence

Your story matters. Tell it the right way.

In many ways, social media is the modern public square. The networking and connection building that used to happen face-to-face, and was vital for the success of local businesses, is more frequently relegated to online interactions. As a business, it’s important to understand the role social media plays in comprehensive marketing as a whole. With daily usage of social media apps at an all-time high, if you’re missing out on social, you’re missing out on a viable, thriving market. Social media marketing in Baltimore is an invaluable tool at your disposal. 

 

In the attention economy, compelling content is king. Our driving goal is to share your story, communicate your identity as a company, and create an ongoing conversation between you and your audience. Trust is invaluable to longevity as a business, and social media can help build genuine trust with your customer base. 

 

Your story matters, but you want to be efficient when communicating it. It is one of the most cost-effective ways to market your company, as it is tailored to a specific audience already interested in your business. 

 

Our social media strategy is driven by compelling content, thoughtful design, and copy that puts your company’s identity at the forefront.

Our Social Media Marketing Approach

Collaborate

Social media is a representation of your company shared with the world. For this reason, we take the time and care to get the details right. From creating graphic design elements to crafting a social voice that invites the right audience to your posts, we believe each piece of your social presence should work in tandem towards your business goals. 

Create

Our process for social media marketing includes both creative execution and technical attention to detail. We utilize comprehensive scheduling and planning tools to streamline the process, keeping you ahead of your content calendar with creative pieces that will engage your followers. 

Convert

Our social media marketing services are driven to create connections between you and your audience and increase conversions across all platforms. Social media works in conjunction with your other marketing strategies, making your presence known online. 

Coordinated & Consistent Presence Online

Social media is most effective when efforts are consistent, frequent, and well-coordinated across platforms. Too many local businesses will put social on the backburner after making a concerted push, resulting in them losing the attention of their audience. Social media algorithms curate timelines and dashboards with content users most frequently interact with. This means if you leave large gaps in time between posts, it may be hard to regain attention. Social media relies on sustainable strategies. The Urban Ignite team helps you build them.

Social Media Posts

A great social media post is made up of several equally important pieces: a captivating image or video to grab attention, a thoughtful design or branding element to unify your feed, and text that adds flavor, content, and brand voice. We thoughtfully stitch together each piece into excellent posts by tapping into the creativity and expertise of our team. Before you know it, your social media feed will be transformed into one that carves its own path within your industry. 

Targeted Scheduling

A consistent posting schedule separates the haves from have-nots on social media platforms. The algorithm rewards those who post regularly but don’t venture into the territory of post spam. To ensure your posts go out on time and at a consistent pace, we utilize scheduling software that allows you to check post progress, leave comments, and review your upcoming content calendar. 

Engagement

The word social in “social media” isn’t an understatement. The businesses that are most successful on these platforms understand how to properly engage with their audience. We employ a multifaceted engagement approach, including contests, stories, polls, comment responses, and more. Each of these tactics helps build a sense of community and makes your brand more authentic and tangible to your audience.

Jordan

Jordan Fuller is the Founder and Creative Director of Urban Ignite. He works with clients and the team to help drive the creative vision of each project. 

 

Content creation has always been at the core of Jordan’s identity, starting with home movie production at the age of 6 and video editing at 14 for his YouTube channel. He took an optimistic approach, teaching himself web design in case the YouTube channel found success. While that project never achieved virality, it gave Jordan the tools to lay the foundation Urban Ignite would be built upon. 

 

Urban Ignite began with clients in the construction and home remodeling industry, and managed to grow as a trusted digital marketing firm despite its small team. In the early days, Jordan saw the negative effects overworking can have on a team’s creative output. As such, the workplace model was readjusted to focus on efficiency and work-life balance. This model includes industry-competitive pay while maintaining a 30-hour work week. 

 

Jordan is a creative repository for clients, helping them dream bigger when it comes to content and marketing strategies. 

 

In his free time, Jordan enjoys a good concert, nature walks, video games, meditation, or exploring local events across Baltimore. He also loves collaborating with others to make art, whether it’s at work or for personal projects.
