Web Site Marketing
Search engine optimization can often seem to be a "smoke and mirrors" service. There are a lot of charlatans out there who will gladly promise you the moon while taking your money for no results. Or my favorite: "Guarnateed #1 on Google." What they don't tell you is the phrase that gets you to #1 is not a phrase that anyone uses in an actual search! The truth is, good search engine results start with effective site design and rich content followed by marketing your site in a variety of ways.
Like it or not, social networks are here to stay. The yellow pages are no longer the advertising vehicle it was some 20 years ago. Today, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and other sites are the choice ways to market your web site. We can help you get started with these social sites to establish and promote your brand online.
Tracking and analyzing web site statistics is an important part of growing your business on the internet.
Web Site Portfolio
This site has been online for many, many years and I took over admin duties in 2011. In 2012, the site underwent a makeover as content was edited, layout was tweaked, and new graphics were utilized. I currently administer and maintain this site as well as the site owner's many other sites. A major restructuring of his half dozen or so domains is planned as we centralize all domains, sites, etc to a single location.
Air One Communications
Recently updated, the former site pulled information from the US Cellular web site and depended on that code to display phones and plans. With a change in the USC site, that coding no longer worked. The new site features an online catalog showcasing the phones. Future additions will include phone accessories and mobile electronics.
I set up a similar site for the Pigeon Forge Middle School and, when the principal left to work at the new Catlettsburg school, he asked me to set up a site for the his new school. I passed administration of the site to someone closer to the school so my only role now is to host the site.
Creekside RV Park
I reworked this site in Joomla! to allow the owners to edit their pages as needed. The original site had been built nearly 10 years earlier with very few updates and was definitely showing its age. The initial SEO work brought the site to the first page for many key word searches.
A basic information web site originally authored in NetObjects Fusion and later redone in Joomla! CMS.
Paint and restoration shop located in Virginia. Features galleries of past and current projects as well as a For Sale section.
Predator Athletic Systems
This web site is used to promote an athletic training program.
One of my longtime graphics customers asked me to help in updating his web site. He kept the content pretty much unchanged and I simply reworked the look and feel of the site as well as dropping in the code for the galleries. Authored in NetObjects Fusion.
Smoky Mountain Photo Supply
The owner of this start up company came to me for both his web site needs as well as graphic design work for the vintage photo mats he produces. Originally authored in NetObjects Fusion, the site experienced a complete makeover in 2012 taking it from a static site to a fully interactive catalog site where customers can place purchase orders online.
Smoky Mountain Region PCA
I took over web master duties for this site in the fall of 2011. Luckily, it was built in Joomla! so first thing I did was work up a template for it and rearrange the layout to make it easier for visitors to find information. Plans include updating to J2.5, adding a forum, and other interactive features.
After doing a lot of graphic design work for the owner of US129 Photos, he asked me to redesign his web site. The site was already built around Joomla CMS so I went to work enhancing the template with new graphics plus changing and adding content. Not much was left of the former site. The site features a page of images that allows visitors to vote for their favorites. In addition, the US129photos.com web site includes a slide show header, embedded videos, and a shopping cart system. SEO work has helped attract an average of 30,000+ visitors each month (in season). An update of the site in May 2012 included upgrading to Joomla 2.5 in addition to adding a members only section, comments, and testimonials pages. With continued SEO work, this sitte attracts nearly 50% more visitors than the same time a year ago and those numbers are climbing.
