We talk a lot about creating digital ads for clients, but what we did for Buffalo Rising was a little different. Parkway sat down with the Buffalo Rising sales team to talk strategy. First up: clarifying ad package options and rebuilding the company’s Google DoubleClick account.

Our new site design wasn’t just for users (although they’re always priority #1); we built with local advertisers jonesing to reach Buffalo Rising’s readers in mind too. Parkway armed the Buffalo Rising sales team with their new user-friendly website and clear-cut ad options for local businesses. The sales team got to work, pitching their fresh digital footprint and reputation as one of Buffalo’s best news sources to businesses across the city. And then ad revenue doubled.

“We’ve worked closely with the Parkway team to redesign, redevelop and rebuild the latest incarnation of and couldn’t be happier with the results. Parkway Digital are amazing web developers, digital media experts, and all around great to work with.”
