What We Love About Austin, Texas
Why Our Austin SEO Company Loves Our New Location
MediaSmack is more than proud to have opened an office in Austin, Texas. This addition, brought on by a partnership with an Austin-based legal marketing company, occurred in 2017. Since then, the agency more than doubled in size.
Since the relocation, this Austin SEO company has had plenty of time to settle into life in this quirky TX city. Since most of MediaSmack’s employees live in Texas, they’ve got the low-down when it comes to the exciting facts about Austin.
All About Austin, Texas
- Did you know that Austin City Limits is the longest-running live music TV show in the U.S.? The show got its start in 1974, back when its featured performer, Willie Nelson, was still largely unknown. Since then, the show has hosted a slew of artists, whose preferred genres range from country to Rock ‘n Roll, and anything in between. Due to its fame, Time magazine recently dubbed ACL as one of the 10 most influential music programs in the world. It also helped spawn one of the largest music festivals in the world—the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Zilker Park.
The show, recorded at the Moody Theater, is just a short walk from MediaSmack’s new office!
- What is Austin known for in addition to the notorious ACL? Well, almost everyone has heard about South by Southwest!
Originating in 1987, SXSW continues to provide a whirlwind of film, media, and musical showcases. Held in March each year, this large-scale conference conglomerate only continues to increase in size. The festival now attracts more than 2,000 musicians and artists, and an even larger crowd of festival-goers. The innovation and creativity of SXSW is yet another thing we love about Austin, Texas.
- The University of Texas at Austin also deserves a spot on our list! The university, located downtown, is the flagship institution of the larger University of Texas System. It boasts the top business, engineering, and law programs of any university in Texas. The prestige doesn’t end there, however. The university employs award-winning faculty members, including winners of the Nobel and Pulitzer Prizes.
Dedicated to innovation and discovery, the University of Texas at Austin devotes over $600 million a year to research projects. To add some brawn to their brains, the university is also the proud home of the Longhorns. Fans’ dedication to their university’s sports teams keeps professional teams at bay.
- What we love most about Austin, Texas is the eccentric and exciting atmosphere! While you may have heard of our beloved slogan “Keep Austin Weird,” you may not know how weird our city really is.
The place where Janis Joplin got her start is the same city that now leads the country in venture capital funding. The city in which Whole Foods Market first opened its doors also hosts the nation’s only Formula 1 race. The largest urban bat population resides in the city, which also houses nearly 2,000 food trucks. And, trust us, you’ll have to check out the “Cathedral of Junk” and “Eeyore’s Birthday Party” for yourself!
