NBC Learns the Pros and Cons of Social Media

The Pros and Cons of Social Media We’ve been documenting the 2012 Summer Olympics briefly here at Redhead Labs. This Tulsa web developer is enthralled by a recent story not involving events on the field, but off. With the advent of social media in our every day lives, it is now even easier to catch up on your favorite athlete, your countries top performers, and all other Olympic events. And therein lies the problem. Tape delays and Twitter have been at the forefront of this weekend’s events, with vocal critics lashing out against NBC. Tape-delaying events has enraged American sports fans, oftentimes spoiling the outcomes on newscasts before they air. Problematic online streaming has angered even more. NBC is learning the hard way that digital freedom comes at a price. So while the Twitter feeds light up with angry tweets, NBC has realized firsthand the mighty impact of social media. The powers that be at NBC have taken this online lesson to heart, altering their newscasts to reflect the primetime events, and even taking to Twitter to converse with critics and fans alike. Using social media to sift through the good and the bad is a necessity for any large business to succeed in today’s economy. Olympic Update The Olympics are into the first week after an exciting weekend of international competition. Team USA women’s soccer and basketball teams both came away from very convincing victories and have matches set for today. The men’s archery squad pulled off a nail-biting semi-finals finish, but […]

It’s the middle of summer and it sure feels like it! This Oklahoma web developer caught a cool spell recently, dropping just below 100 degrees in time for the Fourth of July. Our offices will be closed on Wednesday July 4th, but a shortened work week only means harder work the other four days! We have a habit of making up for lost time around here.

Thunder Up | Tulsa Web Design – Redhead Labs

Redhead Labs, Tulsa web developer and BigCommerce Designer, has been collectively cheering all year for the Oklahoma City Thunder, one of the biggest names in sports right now. And small wonder – the team has garnered followers coast to coast and just recently won the first game of seven in the NBA Finals. The Thunder’s success can be attributed to many things: the youthful athleticism of its stars, the dedication of the team and staff, loyalty to one goal, and the focus to win a championship. As loyal Thunder fans, Oklahoma web developer Redhead Labs understands all these skills. We believe many of them transcend basketball and can be applied to your business as well. Maybe not athleticism or a tangible trophy, but core ideas such as teamwork, dedication, and goals can go a long way in business and in life. Uniting a city and state, the Oklahoma City Thunder continue their playoff run tonight. Redhead Labs looks forward to this series and can’t wait to see how it ends!

The Avengers – How a Quality Product Can Guarantee Results

Powerful Brands Lead to Success Recently released in the US, The Avengers has broken numerous box office records. Already the early summer mega-hit has grossed over $200 million in this country alone. Its global sales are well over $700 million dollars, making a billion dollar goal very possible. The marvels at Redhead can’t seem to stop talking about this movie! Not all of this success was expected, however. Studio executives feared that the movie-pirating community would make a deep dent in the box office profits. Some were afraid the current economy would keep moviegoers at home. Still others felt that the superhero genre may have simply run its course. They were all wrong. Website Branding for Your Business The star-studded, action-packed superhero movie is a great analogy for your online business. A huge hit takes a number of successful parts to work correctly, and your business needs to function the same way. From the marketing and logo design, to the layout and aesthetics, everything should flow together to deliver one knock-out of  a website. Granted, Marvel Comics’ brand is on a much larger scale. But nothing is stopping you producing something equally compelling. Piece together the right pieces, and you will see results! Tulsa Web Design firm Redhead Web Development can help you with the foundation and creation to ensure the best for your business. Contact us today!
