DMS SUCCESS IN THE CITY
For 35 years, Olive’s Oddments in Hamilton has seen a steady flow of customers through the door to peruse the I Love Lucy ephemera and Nightmare Before Christmas sundries. With the assistance of the DMS program, Dana Thompson of Olive’s Oddments has been able to improve her digital literacy and launch a new mobile-ready website taking her unique finds and making them available online.
Founded in early 2015 by two McMaster University students, Charitees offers affordable, quality apparel while giving you the opportunity to give back to the local community with 10% of the proceeds that come from your order going directly to a registered non-profit/charity. With the help of Digital Main Street, Charitees was able to optimize their website for mobile, implement SEO, and run Google Adwords campaigns for awareness.
Alcatraz Escape Rooms
Alcatraz Escape Rooms offers Hamilton’s most exciting escape rooms at 576 & 604 Concession Street. They offer six, uniquely-themed and staged escape rooms where participants must solve a series of puzzles to “escape” before time runs out. With the help of Digital Main Street, Alcatraz was able to improve its digital marketing and literacy skills while learning to run Google Adwords and Facebook PPC ads.
