How We Unwrapped Extra Creativity this Holiday Season

The holidays are a great excuse to boost creativity. Our team of designers and developers work tirelessly on some great projects for our clients, but the holidays present a challenge to design something extraordinary, for ourselves. In previous years, you may have seen our custom designed four packs of craft beer, our “cheesy” holiday cards and cheese assortment, and our handcrafted paint cans equipped with...

The Holidays Are More Fun When You Play Games

As magical and amazing as the holiday season is, it can also be ridiculously stressful. We have created a distraction for all that. The Great Ornament Tournament. A game designed and developed by the FCD team to provide some comic relief. It’s a holiday ball buster–putting ornaments on trees seems easy–but remember those brittle ornaments can break. The rules of the game are simple. You have...

Reasons Why People Unsubscribe from Your Emails

Email marketing can be a tricky feat. There’s a certain feeling that comes from crafting a perfect email. Even the most beautiful and well thought out email campaign will fail if no one reads it. Spam filters are growing increasingly better. Email marketing programs such as MailChimp put restrictions on contact lists in order to keep the emails clean and going to valid recipients. So,...

How to Imrpove Your Website Bounce Rate

When it comes to monitoring your website, one of the first things to look at is the bounce rate. How many people are leaving your website after visiting just one page?
