321Blink is a team of creative Pittsburgh based professionals who are passionate about helping businesses through a variety of outlets, from video and social media to web development and branding.
When it comes to quality video, we help organizations succeed in this rapidly changing video-based world. We harness the steadfast value in traditional media (TV, radio, etc.) as well as the soaring value in contemporary media (web, social media, etc.) and give businesses the option of utilizing one or the other or both. We produce traditional
:30 and :60 commercials, as well as longer form video that can then be deployed however businesses see fit.
How it works
What do you do when you need the phone number for your local Pittsburgh pizza joint, Vinny’s Pizza? We bet you don't open up your phone book and scroll through the yellow pages anymore. You Google it and then watch the brief video of Vinny (that 321Blink produced) on his website (that 321Blink designed) talking about his family’s rich Italian history of pizza-making. You like Vinny so you go to Urban Spoon (urbanspoon.com) for a review and apparently A LOT of people like Vinny’s Pizza. Then after you’ve ordered and devoured your meat lover’s special you write on Vinny’s Pizza Facebook page (that 321Blink helped set-up) thanking him for the awesome pie. Then Vinny thanks you and offers you a coupon for a free 2-liter of soda at your next visit. With that you’re a hooked customer and you tell two friends and they tell two friends and thus completes the circle of life and customer service in the social media age.
More and more people turn to the web for information, entertainment, and recommendations. And if you’re a business owner you need to be there - not just Facebook, YouTube, Four Square, and other social media outlets but your entire web presence needs to be enticing and updated…and video should be an essential part of that mix. Enticing, updated content and video will not only keep your customers engaged but it will help your Google rankings when someone searches the Internet.
“… the “big winners” in Google’s algorithm update… ‘sites that feature a lot of video,’… Google gives special weight for rankings boost along with constantly updated content.” Search Engine Journal, April 2012 (http://www.searchenginejournal.com/googles-fresh-video-seo-tips-for-website-product-pages/42465/)
This is what is commonly referred to as Search Engine Optimization, and fresh content and video goes a LONG way to helping you with yours.
It may sound like a lot, but it’s really quite simple and affordable and it really needs to be a part of your marketing strategy. Ultimately what it boils down to is allowing 321Blink to help tell your story. We bring decades of marketing and video experience to Aspinwall, to Pittsburgh, and to the world.
There’s one more thing we do, we give back to our local western Pennsylvania community by providing non-profit organizations with a venue to share their message and their mission. We offer a program, which allows select non-profit organizations free video production and free airtime to help spread their word. By helping others we help ourselves, be it in business or through volunteerism and philanthropy.
