Dr Deb Carlin’s Partners In Excellence – Mobile Website Upgrade

It has been my great pleasure to work recently with Dr. Deborah Carlin and her amazing organization Partners In Excellence.

Work It. Read It. Live It.

The goal of this project was to take the current website and make it mobile friendly by updating the design and feel of the website interface.

Websites much like magazines and other publications are far more effective when the branding and the user interface is consistent and relates to the culture and ethos of that business or entity.

Imagine going into an Apple Store and instead of the sleek clean design we are used is replaced by the decor found in a Cracker Barrel.

It wouldn’t keep with their image or the way that Apple does things. It would distract people from the point. It’s the same with Cracker Barrel, people go there expecting to look through the store at all the various sale items the way they have always seen them. Drastic changes can cause a big drop in the appeal and what it is that draw people to a business. That’s why it is always important when doing a major transition on anything relating to a businesses brand to stay on message with all other aspects of the brand or make a purposeful transition to something new.

The Outcome was a nice transition without any loss or major changes to the design. We incorporated a new layout that allows for a simple row by row design. Within each row we can set up multiple columns allowing for flexibility when creating content. The main readable content follows a nice consistent flow that is readable on mobile devices as well as desktops and laptops.

Hydra-Tek, LLC – Marketing Consulting – Web Design – Print Design

The Client

Hydra-Tek was founded by Brian Billington who along with Mark Riley have over 40 years of experience in the hydraulic and heavy equipment repair industry. They have worked with numerous businesses in the St. Louis area which has afforded them the knowledge and understanding needed to work successfully and get results. Now they use this knowledge and experience to provide high quality work at affordable prices.

Brain came to us knowing what his goal was, but wasn’t sure how to tell their story. We helped them develop their business plan and path to success.

Here we have a sneak peak of an upcoming website, The Broadway Fund. This is an informational website with an information intake to help qualify leads. Through the use of a simple Goal Conversion Process we filter through Investors, Brokers and Borrowers creating a funnel process allowing for quick and immediate action with potential customers and clients.

Stelly-Belly-Full-Color-Logo-RGB-300x142Anne Reid Products, Inc owner of StellyBelly Pregnancy Comfort Products (formerly MyMommy Love) needed to move beyond their Mom & Pop garage business approach and look, moving into the realm of Brand Building. Through a cooperative effort with Lauren Davis of Impact Marketing Cooperative a new look feel and flow was created for all online and conventional media. This work included logos for both Anne Reid Products as well as StellyBelly in addition to online and print media for StellyBelly to include an eCommerce website.

The goal was to create a straightforward sales portal for StellyBelly allowing customers to easily purchase products and pay through an online payment gateway. We also integrated this site with QuickBooks as well as UPS allowing us current financial and shipping data. This system is built on the WordPress CMS allowing for complete control of the website from the standpoint of Customer Service as well as Order Fulfillment and Shipping.

As with all of our web products this site is also integrated with Google Analytics allowing clear detailed data on not only how many people are coming to the site but where they are going and for how long. With this information it is easy to track bounce rates as well as goal conversions in the sales process making the WordPress

CMS into a powerful sales and marketing tool.

  • Dynamic Property Listing with the ability to post commercial and residential property groups as well as available units within the properties
  • Full XML import and export features for all property information
  • Image modification capabilities
  • PDF Flyer export Capabilities for each listing
  • Agent Capabilities allows the website administrator to create new Real Estate agent accounts and associate them with properties
  • Slideshow setup available for each property or page within the site
  • Super-map – Direct link to Google Maps showing regional maps with markers for all listings as well as click-able details to Google maps and contact information for each page
  • Ability to expand and integrate a payment gateway allowing tenants to log-in and pay their rent/lease/inquire about purchase online. This system will also allow agent’s to do quotes and invoices
  • The ability to create an unlimited number of forms and place them within the content of the website
  • On Page Search Engine Optimization system allowing for more effective indexing of the websites pages on Google

The total time for this website development project was 4 months and resulted in a highly effective website that The Michaelson Organization is now using to create more awareness about their properties.

Corrigan Company Business Website

The Corrigan Company is a prime example of success over time. The very culture and ethos of The Corrigan Co. is predicated upon time proven processes that gets the job done right.

We worked with Corrigan Co. on creating a solid business-to-business website that would allow potential customers to read about and understand this time honored tradition of success in action.

Our solution for The Corrigan Co. involved a business to business information portal as well as a content management system allowing them the freedom to change or expand the content of the website at will.
