The staff at Lime Valley is pleased to announce the launch of the newly redesigned Lime Valley website. The fully responsive site is modern, intuitive, and a better representation of the agency and its clientele. From a creative standpoint, the goal of the new website is to clearly reflect the culture, work ethic, and collective talent at Lime Valley.

The pages and menu system are now more straightforward with today’s best practices and are easier to navigate.
Facebook continues to be one of the most popular social media sites, and an increasing number of varied demographics are spending an increasing amount of time on the site. As such, Facebook offers certain tools to businesses to maximize exposure on social media. One of those tools is boosting posts, an easy and effective way to gain more exposure of the content. A boosted post is similar to a normal post from a business Facebook page. For a fee, the post is “boosted” higher up in the audience’s news feeds, guaranteeing a certain level of visibility that might not happen with the organic reach of a regular post.
