You probably heard us buzzing about votes a few weeks ago and we’re pleased to announce the hard work paid off! This past weekend we had the honor of winning an Austin Young Chamber’s FAVE Award for FAVE Professional Services Company for the 2nd year in a row! We are unbelievably thankful for everyone’s support and votes – we truly couldn’t have done it without you.
The FAVE Awards are presented annually by Austin Young Chamber to recognize local companies in 16 different categories that cater to young professionals in the Austin area. We were honored to share our category this year with four other great local businesses: Courreges PC, De Leon & Washburn, P.C., Simply Sold, and The Hanley Law Firm.
The award ceremony this year was a fun swanky event held in the Radisson Hotel ballroom with an awesome after party hosted by the Belmont. We had a great time attending and couldn’t be more thrilled and appreciative for the win.

First things first: What’s a landing page? A landing page is a page a visitor is directed to after clicking on an ad. It shouldn’t be your company’s home page. Instead, it should exist as a separate webpage with one clear message and purpose, leading visitors seamlessly from the initial ad to a clear call to action, and ideally – to conversions.

Happy Monday from HMG!
We were greeted this morning with some exciting news from the American Business Awards and we couldn’t wait to share! Last Friday in San Francisco, the ABA awarded many prestigious companies with Stevie Awards in a variety of categories. HMG Creative had the pleasure of competing and are thrilled to announce we won a Gold Stevie Award in the nonprofit category for our work with Texas Young Lawyers Association! The TYLA “What Do Lawyers Do?” Project was an especially fun one for us as we always enjoy the opportunity to work with local nonprofit organizations.
A big thank you to the American Business Awards, and congratulations to all of our fellow winning businesses – we’re in great company!
