a new creative space for dragonsearch in the hudson valley

The Hudson Valley’s Uptown Kingston neighborhood experienced an exciting and wonderful day this month! A well-established digital marketing organization that services national and international clients cut the ribbon at its new, creatively-designed space, sharing the festivities with government officials and regional dignitaries.

It was a milestone for all of #usDragons – because the organization was OURS!

DragonSearch officially opened its new office at what was formerly the Ertel Building, and now renamed the DragonSearch Building, at 8 N. Front Street. The two-story, 19,000 square-foot building was once a medical device factory and a Nash new car dealership. You know any building is an old one that sold a car brand that stopped production in the mid 50’s! Substantial renovations were accomplished on the second floor and it is now the home of over 25 full-time employees.

Our innovative digital marketing company – based here and in NYC – provides search marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), social media marketing (SMM), and web development. There is also an in-house graphic design team and a video production department. All the digital marketing work is completely done on premises by the industry-leading Dragon team, integrating all the services offered with a customized strategy, uniquely developed for each client.

The new DragonSearch offices were born out of partners Don Tallerman and Ric Dragon’s vision to create a work environment that was fun, dynamic, provocative and inspiring. At 9,000 square feet, the space will provide plenty of interior real estate. Overlooking the beautiful historic New York State Senate House Park and displaying views of the Catskill Mountains through an abundance of huge perimeter windows, the new DragonSearch office is a one-of-a-kind space that inspires creativity. The central area features individual workspace that allows for private work while also encouraging collaboration. Around the office are many nooks and tucked away spots for meetings, brainstorming, or just a bit of chilling.

It was important to the team that the space be able to host events and the team hasn’t wasted time in fulfilling that vision. On September 17, DragonSearch will host “Social Media Advertising Roundtable Training,” an interactive workshop designed to help business owners navigate the complex world of social ads.
