Arke supports several organizations including No Kid Hungry, Women Who Code, and the Special Olympics.
“In the beginning, many folks donated time and energy to help us figure out how to start a business. Now we give back by doing the same thing from a business mentoring perspective. But we also think it’s important to work with organizations in our communities to enable folks that may not have the same opportunities we did.”
Top-Notch Industry Knowledge Attracts Innovative Brands
Arke takes pride in changing the way that brands approach technology and helping them to achieve maximum return on investments. The agency’s continued investment in its team paired with its dedication to innovation, partnerships and creating value for its customers has attracted a community of influential clients. Notable customers include brands such as Omni Hotel & Resorts, MMA, Vacation.com, Chick-fil-A, and many others.
In its work with Omni Hotel & Resorts, Arke created a strategy that focused on the high-value areas of the company’s website that would yield the highest results. This focused approach led to impressive and measurable results that included 13% growth in booking rates over the first six months,12% lift in conversion rate in the first 10 days, and an all-time booking record on omnihotels.com.
