LOUaBULL

LOUaBULL needed a better ecommerce solution that was more functional both on the front-end and back-end. We wanted to give them a great platform to sell their LGBTQ+ clothing and accessories, as well as support the community. We put together a fantastic site that was able to sell and tell the story behind LOUaBULL. We also had a ton of fun at several photo shoots, including the Kentuckiana Pride Parade!

Logan Street Market

We’ve been working and perfecting the Logan Street Market website for a little while. It started as a landing page, just to let people know they were coming and give the media some information. In the background, we’ve been working on a multi-vendor ecommerce solution that would allow all the different vendors at Logan Street Market to sell their goods and services, while allowing for market management, job postings, event rentals, and much, much more. The site was able to provide it all. If you have events, markets, or are in need of a multi-vendor (or even a single vendor) eccommerce platform, contact Design Web to get started.

ClipperData

ClipperData is an international company that has been featured in Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and CNBC. They provide data to traders and investors, so we had to make sure the site was functional and looked fantastic. We were able to put together a great looking website that provided easy navigation to the data. We did a lot of research and design work to improve user satisfaction and increase conversions and leads. We are very proud of this website and all the time and work that went into it.

New Beginnings Family Services

Design Web teamed with New Beginnings Family Services(NBFS) to rebrand their 3 websites (Viacolori.com, kentuckyfostercare.com, and newbeginningsky.org). NBFS is a foster care placement organization for children who may have been the victims of abuse and/or neglect. We provided the design and development of these websites at no cost in order to promote this amazing organization and help get more foster children placed in loving homes. Design Web made it easier for NBFS to update and promote through the website, as well as easier for visitors to navigate, find information, answer questions, and sign up to become a foster family. The redesign of the website has increased potential foster family signups. We absolutely loved working with Dusty and the rest of the gang at New Beginnings Family Services.

Designing a Real Estate Website that Generates Actual Leads

Edwin Deponte takes over our blog this month to discuss the real estate websites. Thanks Edwin!

Recent surveys observed that out of 6 million houses sold in 2017, 51% of the buyers found and purchased their dream homes online. It just shows how the real estate industry is expanding. And the sooner you start using a website to sell real estate, the better off you’ll be.

Still, starting your own real estate website and giving it a snazzy design and branding won’t be enough to help you thrive in the industry. You see, home buyers and sellers these days have particular expectations when it comes to real estate. You’ll need to add a few other components if you want your online real estate platform to generate leads, some of which are listed below.

Area Profiles

People rarely look properties up by state or city when visiting real estate websites and house-hunting; they check out communities and neighborhoods instead. Thus, your site needs to list out specific area profiles to make it easier for your potential clients to find what they’re looking for. Doing so will also give your website an advantage SEO-wise since the keywords, links, and videos you put on it can help your site become visible easier.

Agent Profiles

You also need to set aside a page for your profile. A real estate website is only as good and credible as the agent that represents it. Not only will real estate agents act as the face of your online brokerage, but they’ll also help your platform build relationships with your target audience (since it allows buyers and sellers alike get to know you better). Moreover, you can spruce your website up even further by including testimonials, listing active and sold properties, and adding your bio and contact info.

Integrated Community Data

Good real estate agents can sell you a home, but the great ones will offer you a lifestyle. By integrating community data and offering lifestyle in your real estate website, you’ll be able to gain an edge over your competitors. For example, if your platform lists a Tagaytay condo for sale, showcase to your target audience the schools, restaurants, and other notable spots nearby. That way, you’ll not only demonstrate your expertise regarding Tagaytay, but you’ll also be able to give your potential clients a glimpse of the lifestyle the condo can provide.

IDX and MLS Search

Integrating multiple listing services (MLS) and internet data exchange (IDX) search engines will help your real estate websites hold its own in the frontlines of the real estate industry. For one thing, it can combine all your multiple listing services into one seamless search engine. And for another, it can help visitors find open houses with community features. MLS and IDX will also help your target audience locate customized neighborhoods, as well as conduct a polygon search and have the results displayed cleanly with a side-by-side map view.

In Summary

For your real estate website to achieve success in the industry, you need it to generate leads regularly. By adding the components listed above, you’ll be able to drive, traffic, keep visitors engaged, and provide multiple points of conversion, allowing you to generate as many leads as possible.

Reel Fly Girls

Samantha Heavrin came to us with her business idea – creating a website that could sell fly fishing gear to women, as well as being a resource for women who fish and love outdoor adventures. We were able to put together a great design that not only told her story, but sold her products.

Samantha put together a fantastic brand with Reel Fly Girls showing women who love adventure and recognize that being the best student, wife, mom or boss means taking time to care for themselves. The focus of the site was for selling fly fishing apparel, but the gear can be used for any outdoor activity, or even for a night on the town after the sporting fun.

Nationwide Services, LLC

Nationwide Services, LLC works with moving large machinery and entire factories, as well as dealing in scrap and other industrial services. We put together a website that would help boost their search presence and increase their reach to clients. Not only did we help Nationwide Services with a website, but we also helped conduct an SEO campaign that increased search ranking and their business online.

Our campaign is helping to increase the search ranking of the website, as well as increasing the position zero, meta data positions, and other business information for the business.

LaMancha 5k

We redesigned the front and back end on the LaMancha Critter Crawl 5k website so that it would function more smoothly and be easier to edit for everyone involved.

We put together the original LaMancha Critter Crawl 5k website a few years back, so it was time for a major renovation. We completely changed out the structure of the site, but we were able to keep all of the content that everyone was using on the site. This resulted in a smoother experience on a much faster-loading site. This also provided a backend so that the organizers of the race could update and maintain the site as they wished.

For event management websites, race websites, or any sporting event website, you can count on Design Web to win first place.

Dettman Law

We worked with Brian Dettman of Dettman Law to put together a great site that would work for his law firm. The site includes a large list of services he offers, each with its own landing page to increase specific SEO on the site for that particular keyword and/or keyword phrase. We also created a back end of the site for easy editing, addition and removal of posts, pages, and other content.

Review from Brian Dettman –
“From start to finish Jael and Sean were great. I hired them to create a new website for my law Firm. They were prompt, available, and responsive when I had questions or input. They didn’t try to tell me what I wanted, but instead helped game plan what I was looking for. I highly recommend them.”
