Website-design-development Website Redesign

 We’ve thought long and hard about how to make the web experience fruitful and fun for anyone looking to build a great online presence.

We know that a website is a crucial part of communication and collaboration in today’s changing world.  We also realize all these changes have come upon us quite quickly.

Here are some sample of what are Web Building Blocks look like when assembled into an active website:

Bella Reyes Law

Bella-Reyes-LawWe offer an affordable alternative to the hefty monthly fees charged by legal directory services.

We were able to offer an website ready to connect to social networks, blog ready, mobile optimized, and SEO tagged for a very small fraction of the costs being charged to this law office. Thi smenat much more for a lot lot less.

You can do it yourself with our Video Tutorials or Contact Us and take advantage of our experienced and ready staff.

Many folks are starting to stray away from expensive phone book ads that mostly get dumped in the recycling bin.

 

 

C.A.R.S

This is a nice example of a responsive theme that is easy to C.A.R.Sset up and looks great on any device. Responsive themes work well on any device like desktops,laptops,tablets and smart phones. This site only needed very limited functionality and sharing features.

Every web site has different goals.

 

 

 

 

 

Ella’s

 


Cafe-Ella-website-redesign Even folks who redesigned their website a couple of years ago would do well to see what has developed in recent years. The amount of influence and connections now possible online are amazing. Every business can take advantage of today’s online communication and collaboration.

We recently helped the good folks at Ella’s get their websites updated and most importantly- get it linked to the engaged Facebook friends they already made through the last few years.

We added Facebook integration which allows Facebook log-in for comments and auto-posting of blog postings, photos, media and more. In addition we added the activity feed since so many people were already engaged with Ella’s.

We noticed from the Facebook activity that many people were inquiring about services and scheduling.  We used the Appointments plug in (included in Pro hosting) to make it easy for anyone to make a reservation or schedule catering for either Cafe Ella or Ella’s Italian Restaurant. This feature provides the option for Google Calender synchronization.

We also used free Google Forms to make a custom contact form that nicely fits the function and design. We also included the Google+ plug in to make way for including Ella’s into Google’s quickly expanding social network.

Next we set up a Twitter account and linked it to the home page with a simple Twitter widget included with the premium theme.  We did the same with the Facebook Activity widget after setting up a Facebook API and configuring the Ultimate Facebook plug in.

We found many great Yelp reviews so included the Yelp It plug in which automatically updates a graphic of your Yelp star rating. There is no better adverting then real referrals. Last but certainly not least – we started a blog which will auto post to both Facebook and Google +. More to come.

Golden Bear Fire

We are always happy when we get a really well run business that needs a website face lift.  Many have sites that are five or six years old – which is ancient in the web world. Check out the great Wag tools we implemented for this great family run company.

 

 

 

 

 

Private Sites

Sometimes you don’t want to have a social network have control and even partial ownership of your personal pictures and video journals. You can still have all of the wonderful sharing features of the net while maintaining complete control and ownership. Share as you please.

 

This is an example of a site that takes advantage of password protection while allowing registered users (family and friends)  unfettered access. The included Privacy and Password Protect Selected Content plug in options let you choose exactly what is shared and with whom.

Real-Estate-Blogs

This project was not a building the main site – but a couple of small capture sites meant to get targeted visitor’s attention and direct them to the main site.

Local and mobile optimization are essential to real estate sites along with relevant and useful information to attract eyeballs.

With this in mind we created area specific information pages and auto blogs to poulate the site regularly with the latest trending real estate and economy related news.

Local SEO results along with Social Sharing are driving today’s marketing methods.

We got to work by adding industry specific plug ins to add lots of rich features that double as magnets for better SEO ranking. We added automatically updated plug ins to implant statistics, charts, lists and maps from the internet.  This included daily information imports from Trulia, Zillow, Yelp and Walkscore.

 

Utilizing the abundance of free features and resources to online to drive the right eyeballs to your site is the future of marketing.

 

We originally added MLS service to the site and mobile site also, but later removed it and re-directed all search requests to the main site. We are constantly monitoring and shifting direction based on Google Analytics and our Reports feature.

We also created a free blog site which is set to filter real estate blogs from various top information websites. Our goal is always to get you the most bang from your buck by using as many free features and available information as possible. We understand not everyone has a full time writing staff – yet it is crucial to have your site filled with trending information.

DesiBizBuy

This was an experiment in getting a local business community into a web community. This site is no longer actively maintained – nor is  hosted on our super fast and secure servers – but is a good example of the breadth of tools and features that can be used to create web communities specific to an industry.

 

Specialty Plug Ins

Every website requires a different approach when it comes to which features and specialty plug ins to add. Too many and your site may run slow

Desibizbuy is an example of a site with industry specific plug ins that offer information and services from across the web. An online community is currently in the infant stages with only 70 blogs – but is fertile and can soon become a great resource for Commercial Real Estate in the Bay Area. Stay Tuned.
