Welcome Fabrizio

A New Addition to the Longevity Graphics Team


Online Marketing and website design are fast growing and ever-changing industries. With a passion for high-end design, expertise and customer service, the Longevity Graphics team continues to grow. We have welcomed many new faces to our team over the past two years – the most recent being Fabrizio – a new Internet Marketing Coordinator at Longevity Graphics.

To help introduce him to our clients and followers, read below for a brief Q and A.

1. What are your hobbies and interests?

In my spare time, I like hanging out with friends, going out for ethnic food, running to keep fit, and practicing meditation (it really helps you to be happier and calmer). I also love reading articles on the internet. What kind you ask: literally everything – from online newspapers to Wikipedia articles.

2. What do you bring to Longevity Graphics?

I have gained valuable experience in a variety of fields, including Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Search Engine Marketing (SEM), landing page design, marketing campaign management, and customer service. I value transparency and clear communication with both my fellow colleagues and my valued clients. Accountability and integrity are my compass at work.

3. Why did you get into the industry?

My interest for the communications industry has taken me from journalism to digital marketing. As these are both such diverse fields, my understanding and desire to learn allows me to keep expanding my knowledge.

4. What is your favourite part of the work you do?

I like working with clients from various industries and taking responsibility for the project at hand.  From the planning phase to project execution, and I take pride in the work I do.

5. Any words of wisdom that you would like to share with our readers?

Don’t be afraid to question the obvious and the rules in order to get results.

To connect with Fabrizio, email him directly at [email protected].

Our team is made up of local, industry experts that help our clients achieve real results online. If you are looking to increase revenue from online leads, get in touch with us now. We offer a 1-Hour FREE Consultation on all of the services we provide.

Email Scams: What To Look Out For

At Longevity Graphics, we regularly receive emails and messages from less than reputable sources. As convincing as these emails appear, there are some clear, tell-tale signs that the communication is a scam. In this blog post, we will discuss some common email scams that we have received and how you can avoid falling victim to them.

In order for these scammers to gather personal information quickly, they create a sense of urgency. In their message, they will say:

  • Your account is being threatened
  • You need to provide them with access
  • They will provide you with a link to a legitimate looking website
  • The will ask you to input your login credentials

After they have your personal information, they can then use it as they please.

How can you spot these scam emails?

Here are some things to look out for when you receive an email or message from an unknown source.

  • Spelling errors
  • Poor grammar
  • Lack of capitalization
  • Mention of another country
  • Offers that are too good to be true

Sales Email Scams

A common scam that we have received are emails from internet marketing companies saying that we have inquired about their services. They structure the email in such a way that it appears as through we have contacted them and requested information about their services.

They will include re: in the subject line of the email. This makes the email appear as though it is a reply. When in fact, it is not.

In the body of the email, they will say:

  • Thank you for reaching out to us…
  • Thank you for inquiring about our services…
  • As requested, here is more information about…
  • We can provide your company with…

The email will contain links to “further information”.  Ultimately, they will make claims about their product or service that are just too good to be true.

Phishing Email Scams

Phishing scams are emails or messages from someone pretending to be from a reputable source with the goal to gain access to your personal information. The cyber criminal will attempt to trick you into giving them access to your account.

The most common information they are looking for are your passwords for:

  • Bank Accounts
  • Social Media Platforms
  • Work Accounts
  • Cloud Storage
  • Personal Information

In order to appear more convincing, these messages appear to be from a reputable source such as your bank or other financial institution.

Have you ever received an email or call claiming to be from Google Adwords? Google has made it very clear that they will “never send you an unsolicited message asking you to provide your password or other sensitive information by email or through a link.”

Greeting Card Email Scams

As the name suggests, a greeting card scam is an email you receive containing a link to an e-card. The email itself appears to be from a friend, but if you open the email and click on the link, malicious software will begin to download and install onto your computer.

Since the beginning of the twenty first century, technology continues to connect us to each other as never has before. Society has experienced many positive advancements from technology; however, it has also opened our lives to the threat of cyber criminals. By using your best judgement and following the tips above, you will be better equipped to navigate through the digital era.

The team from Longevity Graphics wishes you a relaxing Labour Day 2016 Long Weekend.

Online Marketing and website design are fast growing and ever changing industries. With a passion for high end design, expertise and customer service, the Longevity Graphics team continues to grow.

Isidora Celic is a new addition to the Longevity Graphics team in an Administrative Marketing Assistant role. To help introduce her to our clients and followers, read below for a brief Q and A.


1. What is your experience prior to joining the Longevity Graphics team?
I just recently graduated from New Westminster Secondary School. Previously, I worked in retail as well as volunteered at a yoga studio. This previous work experience has allowed me to improve my customer service skills and step out of my more introverted personality.

2. What are your hobbies and interests?
During my spare time I enjoy doing traditional Serbian Folklore dancing, which I started at the age of 5. Dance has allowed me to meet some amazing friends, learn the value of teamwork, perform all over the world and not to mention, get some exercise in! Besides dance I love dusting off my skis when winter hits and heading up to Cypress Mountain or Whistler Blackcomb on the weekends. This is one of my favorite ways to unwind, spend some time with friends and family as well as enjoy the beautiful slopes BC has to offer.

3. What do you bring to Longevity Graphics?
My friendly, driven and hardworking personality will help me fit into the Longevity Graphics team greatly. I work quickly on my feet and enjoy problem solving in just about any situation. My previous experience working with customers/clients will be a great asset at Longevity Graphics as the new Administrative Marketing Assistant.

To connect with Isidora, email her directly at [email protected].

The Longevity Graphics team is made up of local industry experts that help clients get results. We specialize in online marketing services and website design and development. If you are looking to increase revenue from online leads, get in touch with us now. Set up a 1 hour free consultation on all of the services we offer.
