In the first part of 2015, we’ve launched several new sites (and site redesigns). Check these projects out, then contact ISI for your own website updates. From a complete design to an existing site that needs some sprucing up, or just moving from your current host- whatever your online needs, ISI can help!
Sparky’s site was originally quickly put together before the Coffeehouse opened in January 2014. It didn’t have many images – the only graphic on the site was the logo – and had a basic white background. After the redesign, it has a wider, more attractive format, with more graphics and much more information.
Riverbend Tree Farms
The owners of Riverbend Tree Farms first came to us before Thanksgiving, asking with help with a mass emailing service, before their Christmas tree lot opened for the 2014 season. They had a mailing list and needed a way to contact previous customers, and add first-time visitors to their mailing list for the future. We set up a quick contact form with their logo to get them through this season, and worked on a new site layout to launch in 2015.
Chilly Water Farm, LLC
Chilly Water Farm’s site came together from their current brochure, facebook page, and an unused blog that was still accessible online. We talked to them about how to remove the old content (after we downloaded everything that was still applicable), and developed a cohesive look for the site, with a color scheme that will easily translate to print and other mediums. We set up a PayPal shopping cart for quick, easy ordering of their Get Chillerized products.
At VisitAlleghanyNC.com, we developed a brand new blog with a focus on bird watching, that matched the look of the rest of the site.
NC Society of Historians
ISI has hosted and maintained the site for NCSH for several years, and this year added a WordPress blog, increasing the functionality of the site for NCSH president, Elizabeth Sherrill.
Bill Womble, manager of Millers Camping, was a previous web customer who returned when it was time to update an existing site for the campground. We chose bright new images and a new layout, updating text content and quickly put the new site live. We also added a WordPress blog to the site, and integrated the design of the site into the blog format.
Florida Keys Catamaran Charters
We first worked with the owners of Florida Keys Catamaran Charters to develop the website for their former bed & breakfast inn (which is currently for sale, and hopefully will be reopened when it sells). Recently, they decided to focus on selling the b&b and expand their catamaran charter business. This Spring, we modified both sites, updating information and adding photos.
Crackerfarm is the alias of Mike Beyer, a photographer & videographer based in Nashville, TN, who works with bands like the David Mayfield Parade, Langhorne Slim and the Law, and the Avett Brothers. He noticed his WordPress-based store was down when he recently added a new product for sale. After he tweeted for help, we contacted him, volunteering to fix the problem. (The problem turned out to be an incompatibility between his WordPress theme and an updated version of WordPress, which caused fatal errors and killed the shopping cart functions.) We soon changed him over to a new theme, to get him up and running. Then, we redesigned the site, to focus on his photography and improved e-commerce functionality, in a clean minimalist layout optimized for mobile web browsing.
Shady Rest Tree Farm
Shady Rest Tree Farm contacted us to move their site from their previous hosting company. We quickly moved the site, updated their shopping cart software, re-entered their existing catalog inventory, and integrated PayPal Web Payments. There was minimal downtime with the move.
Star Route Books
We also (somehow) found time to rework our own book publishing site.
Please check all of these sites out. You’ll probably learn something new from each of them, and you’ll definitely see a good variety of services ISI can provide. Contact us if you’re considering a redesign, need help with a troublesome site, or are starting out fresh.
