I am writing this email to share that my (our) friend, colleague, artist, and musician, Christopher Wurzburg, has passed away. Chris was another designer that Business BEactive worked with to exceed our clients expectations. He’s sadly, no longer with us and that means that another is gone too young. At only 23, he had built such an amazing life for himself. He started off as a singer/guitarist in Catch Me If You Can in Rochester, NY, then went on to form Forget Me In Vegas. Then, picking up everything he had, he drove to LA to make a change for himself. After working for Apple, he decided to freelance in graphic and web design -that’s when we decided to work together. And here we are.. without Chris, but remembering that every day must be lived as it were our last because even though we’re young and it seems we have a whole life ahead of us, you just never know. I remember when he drove 4 hours just to donate his time to a fashion show event that I put together for my college internship. That meant so much to me! Then, afterwards sitting at the bonfire with friends, just listening to him and his brother play guitar. Priceless moments. We will keep this focused on thoughts for Chris and his close family and friends, but know that there are some changes to come for Business BEactive -both in his absence and for reasons of our own. We will no longer offer app development or custom-coded websites at this time. We will continue to focus on building our client’s brand, location, and social media presence. We WILL be expanding business and making 2017 our best year yet. I’d like to thank Chris for his contributions to music, our team, and the many lives he’s touched. Again, please keep Chris (even though you may not have known him) and his friends and family, in your thoughts today. It’s appreciated. Thank you.

When people are looking to sell their homes, typically a lot of thought and research goes into just the right timing and pricing before the “For Sale” sign goes up. Signal is here to put a few numbers up and a lot of perspective into place. For the past three years Southwest Florida housing market has been consistently increasing. There has been a demand of people who are looking to live in Naples full-time instead of just visiting. Currently the Naples market trends indicate a 2% increase ($5,750) in median home sales over just this past year. The average price per square foot has risen to $191 from $188. If you’re thinking about selling your home, now seems like the perfect time to do so. Job growth has gone up 2.3% this year and it only looks like it’s going up from here.More and more families are wanting to live in the Naples area giving home sellers a bigger pond to sell to. Although we live in Naples where the standard of living is more than decent, with the housing( and job) market bettering, along comes an even higher standard of living. The median listing price for a home is currently just under $400,000. With such a high median, there is potential for a better return on your investment when selling your home with Signal.

Whether you’re a new business or looking for a makeover in 2016, make sure that your marketing materials are getting their best use. Here are some tips to creating the BEST roll-up banner for your business. Keep your logo at the top: Your logo is your business. It needs to be at eye-level with your main message. We read left to right: Think left to right. Consumers will read from top to bottom and left to right, so remember this when filling your banner with information. Less is more when it comes to word count. Try to keep your look consistent with your banner and other marketing materials. Images: Make sure to use high quality images such as CMYK (ready to print). Color is your friend: Use bold color like red or orange, but avoid yellow and white as it can be difficult to read from a distance. Clear images and text is the key. Contact details: Always have your business name, phone number, website, and email address on you banner. You can also place social media handles on your banner if space allows. Contact details are best paced at the bottom of the banner, but still easy to read.
