This was my first
website. I had to find a way to promote my own llama farm.
It totally turned around our business. Almost all of our sales
are generated by people finding our website. The rest are repeat
sales and referrals. Great pictures are what draw people in.
Content is what keeps them coming back.
Lighting & Furnishings is an exciting new company with gorgeous
products to showcase. We're starting by putting their catalog
on line to assist designers and get the word out about their unique
furniture and lighting options. Our weekly Constant Contact Email
campaign introducing new products has been extremely successful.
Inquires and orders have come in literally within minutes.
When I first started
working with RAM, they didn't have a website so I created their
first website from their brochure. Since then their promotional
material has evolved and so I have been able
to do much more with their website.
Allison-Brock, Inc. is a
Specialty third-party administrator of voluntary union disability
benefit plans They wanted a red, white and
blue theme with easy navigation so we kept it simple with a new logo
and color scheme we can also use for their PowerPoint presentations.
Furnishings is a branch of Renaissance Contract Lighting and
Furnishings that they want to market separately so we created
another website to showcase just the site furniture. So though
there are links to each other they are totally separate websites. We
send out weekly Constant Contact emails as well with great success.
Bowers Holiday Village
is one of my accounting and database clients who needed a web
presence to publish their rates, floor plans and an application
form. So I created a slide show form exterior and interior photos on
the home page and the Floor Plans page.
An accounting client has
opened a new business and needed a web presence and new logo as soon
as possible. We worked together to pick her color scheme and
create her logo. More to come.
This was a badly needed
redesign. The original website was actually two websites that
linked back and forth to each other. I restructured the
navigation to one site and scanned project photos to illustrate what
services and products they offered. I inverted their logo from
black to white and added pages.
Animal websites are my
favorite to do. My client has an existing sheltie website with
which I needed to stay consistent, so I matched the logo for the
Sheltie site and reversed the color scheme from blue on purple to
purple on blue. I have mimicked the effect of matting a
painting and found a real picture of an Aurora Borealis with our
color scheme. www.auroaalpacasllamas.com
CJ Asphalt Paving is one
of my accounting clients whose website needed a face lift. I created
a logo from there name and incorporated the logos of the products
they sell. I found a background that looked like asphalt and
used the text and pictures from their old site to showcase what they
will continue to update their site as they photograph their
I originally created
this website in 2004 as a one page business card website and it was
successful to get the name out. But now I am happy to say we
have fleshed this out to a full blown website.
Mini-Word Child Care
Center is another database client who asked me to help create a
website. I had fun creating the wall paper with children's
handprints. When they opened a new center they told me most of
their new parents found them from the website. With this site
they can publish the new rates and holiday schedules at the
beginning of each year.
This is another example of a
Web Site Redesign. The original web site was created by just
inserting a .jpg on each webpage. So it was impossible for my
client to make changes. Plus it took forever for the pages to load and
the text was difficult to read. So I rebuilt all the pages and
now it loads faster and my client can add to it and make changes.
This is another site I
have taken over. It was very well designed. It just
needed a little tweaking, such as changing the wall paper from
almost white to a deep blue with a light blue stripe that adds depth
and matches the existing colors. This especially enhanced the
pages of the pictures of their products that I reworked for
consistent size and content.
Lea sent me the graphic
file of her logo, a CD with photos and a write up of her farm for her
website. For now I just created a home page with the material
she sent me. And we can add pages as her farm needs grow.
So Sam and Lea now have a web presence with a place to show what
llamas they have for sale.
Drive Line Truck
Services sent me their business card and emails outlining what they
do. I created a new logo for them based on the initials they
use and the fact they are an authorized NAPA parts supplier and own
a NAPA parts store. In about a week before we even had the
equipment for sale page completed they have made sales from being
found on the web.
fun for me to create a llama website especially if some of the llamas
are from my farm. Darlene Awarski worked with me to create her
new logo and home page. We went through a pile of photos and
CD's of digital photos to pick the best for the site. As her
mini llama farm grows the site will grow. For now we have the
home page and a For Sale page to get her farm out there on the web.
Rocky Mount Tractor's
site is a hybrid of using their vendors websites for product
information and their own pages for the store information and to
sell used equipment. I made the design as straightforward as
possible so that they can make their own updates. We are also using
Constant Contact for email marketing. Within days of launching the
new website they made their first sale from being found through this
From a piece of
stationary, a cd of photos and a publisher file showing what
pictures went with what text. DSR's website was created. The
logo was scanned from the stationary and reworked until it looked good
on the web. The photos were optimized and added to the text.
