Following are a few of our more recent website projects. Some are for new clients and some are redesigns of our earlier sites for long-term clients. Although we work with both Joomla and WordPress CMS (Content Management Systems), we’re recommending WordPress to our new clients. If you would like to learn how to post changes yourself, we can teach you how to do that in Joomla or WordPress.
The images below are screenshots that show only part of the home pages and only a few of the websites we’ve developed over the years.
Also, as you read about our clients or former clients below, you’ll sense how much we like them and enjoy working together to develop sites that help them grow their businesses. We treat their businesses as we treat ours and can’t resist butting in with unsolicited suggestions which are usually accepted with a big “Thank You” because we’re marketing specialists and most business owners are not. We do develop a close relationship with our clients and are thrilled when we can help them succeed.
This was a redesign for a website we built in 2009. Scottsdale Treatment, Inc., specializes in counseling for alcoholism and drug addiction, with on-staff physician supervision and medical assistance to help relieve cravings and maintain sobriety. Scottsdale Treatment Institute provides in-person and online classes to satisfy court requirements for DUI offenses.
Please visit their site to learn more about their counseling and online TELEDUI class schedule. Visit STIduionline.com for their online classes available on any schedule, 24/7/365.
“When the first website was launched in 2009, the phones started ringing. Since the redesign, we’re busier than ever! Sharon works like she’s part of our company. She’s proactive and always looking for new ways to build our business. I trust her completely.” — John Butler, President, Scottsdale Treatment
Cosmopolitan Salon & Spa
This was a new custom WordPress site for a hair salon and day spa in Prescott Valley, Arizona. Formerly Wild Manes Salon, they have a loyal clientele from years of excellent service. Cosmo Salon provides all things related to beautiful hair, nails and skin in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. You’ll leave happy!
Just to fully disclose, this is the salon I use and love because I’m so comfortable there, plus Jen does my hair, so I leave with a style I don’t need to rearrange as soon as I get in my car (you know what I mean)!
“We get so many compliments on our website. I had no idea what we needed so I gave Sharon a business card, a handful of our brochures for style and content, and a link to our Facebook page for photos. She and her team did the rest!” — Jen Manda, Owner, Cosmopolitan Salon & Spa
Circle L Ranch Animal Rescue & Sanctuary
This image shown shows a recent 2014 Joomla redesign from our earlier redesign in 2012. All our time during the three and a half years we worked on their website was donated. Their needs have grown along with their donations and volunteer efforts, and, although we love what they do, we could no longer accommodate their requests on a volunteer basis and had to resign.
Circle L Ranch may have 60 dogs living with their caregivers in three on-site houses. No kennels! Their dogs come and go through doggie doors at will. These dogs enjoy life at the ranch but would love to be adopted.
“A previous volunteer webmaster’s redesign cut the site to a handful of pages and deleted our history from 2006 to 2011. Sharon restored the lost ranch history and has kept the site updated. Also it had been difficult to donate online so we took in only about $400 through Paypal in 2011. Sharon’s redesign made it easy for donors to contribute through the website and greatly increased our fund-raising efforts by ten times the second year and it continued to grow exponentially following years&mdashwhich is so important to a non-profit like Circle L Ranch. A talented web designer makes a huge difference!” — Jenny Alberty, Manager, CircleL.org
Precision Utility Locating
This is a 2-year-old Joomla redesign of our earlier 2008 site. Before becoming our client, this company had been paying $100 a month for a 3-page Dex website which included a link on each page to check out their competitors! How rude, Dex!
This couple loved their work and wanted to share the opportunity so they began offering training. Although competing with much bigger companies, they regularly show up in the top 3 or 5 results on page one of Google for “utility locating training.” With their great Google placement, they’ve had students come from other states and even other countries.!
“I have been checking to see where we are in Google results, and I get excited each time, because we are all over the Internet… I am so glad you have helped us on this! We even had a call from Hawaii. We can’t thank you enough. You have been a blessing in our lives.” —Billie Myers, Precision Utility Locating
Central Basin Roofing
This is a redesigned Joomla website for a licensed roofing company in Prescott, Arizona. They have plenty of testimonials including mine! Their bid for my new roof was second from the lowest but their estimator spent more time explaining options and giving me advice than the other salesmen. Trust is a big factor in decision making and I made the right decision with CBR!
After having such great communication with them throughout, they then asked us to redesign their website. CBR now usually shows up in the top three or four results for a Google search. These results come from reasonable search terms such as “licensed roofing contractor prescott.”
Go Get Notary Directory
This is a notary public directory offering free and paid memberships. It also provides a lot of information to help notaries build their businesses. If notaries don’t have a separate website, they can easily enter their info here and have a five-page profile site at GoGetNotary.com within minutes.
GoGetNotary.com is one of our own projects, and we used Joomla for the Content Management System (CMS).
