New Christian Website

I had the pleasure of meeting with Pastor Chris of Saginaw.  He gave me information about The Church of Saginaw, which is not a church but rather a fellowship of churches in Saginaw towards a common goal.  The mission is to synergize the churches of Saginaw to do as one what we can’t do as many, to advance the Kingdom of God.  This is a fantastic idea and they currently have 12 churches of Saginaw that comprise the fellowship. After meeting with Pastor Chris he was excited to get started on a website for the fellowship.  I was able to…

Restaurant Website

For a few years I’ve been trying to get a restaurant to sign on for my website design services.  One of the reasons that I’ve always wanted to work with a restaurant is that I want to work on my food photography.  So the reason is a little self serving.  But I was offering a huge discount to try to land a restaurant job. A very well established restaurant in Saginaw just got purchased by an acquaintance of my wife’s.  This seemed like the in that I needed to get my food photography experience and create a killer website.  After…

Sammy Gets a Blog!

I’ve been working with Sammy Coleman to get some online marketing going.  The second step in the process was to setup a blog.  Step #1 was to setup social media and Sammy was already using Facebook so that was covered.  For the blog we decided on WordPress because of the ease of use and functionality.  Sammy didn’t want to mess with his own domain yet so he is hosting on a wordpress subdomain:  http://therealdealsam.wordpress.com Two posts down and a lot more to go.  Google hasn’t hit the site yet and we want to have some more content before it does…

Michigan Galaxy Update

I was speaking with the director of Michigan Galaxy Pageants and she wanted to change the way the navigation is on the website.  After a little brain-storming session we figured out how the new navigation should look and the order that we wanted it in. After creating the content for the new pages, Debra emailed me the changes and within 2 hours the new navigation and pages were in place. Website navigation is huge!  Most visitors to a website want to get to the information they are looking for within 2 clicks.  Research has shown that visitors will start leaving…

Labadie Banner Ads

I work on the websites for Labadie Auto Company in Bay City Michigan.  A few of the domains that I administer are; www.labadieauto.com, www.great-gm-deals.com, www.labadietoyota.com, www.labadiescion.com, and www.labadierentacar.com.  There are others but these are the main domains. The Labadie’s signed up to be part of a new email campaign and they needed some banner ads.  I haven’t done banner ads for Labadie in a few years so I had to start from scratch.  I remembered reading an article on a marketing blog recently about a great way to find what works.  I can’t remember the blog or I would promote…

Fresh Oil Ministries

I have been working with Iain Gunn to help get his website running for http://freshoilmin.org.  This site is created in Joomla and I had never used Joomla before so there was a bit of a learning curve. We ended up having to uninstall Joomla and start from scratch to get the website functioning again because there was a piece of code that was causing the site to not display using IE. Once the Joomla was re-installed on the server and we re-uploaded the template the first order of buisness was to get the fantastic logo that was designed by Stephanie…
