BOSS Website Redesign

Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 4.16.09 PMThe BOSS (Bands of Santiago Sharks) just got a website redesign. BOSS consists of four concert bands, three big band jazz ensembles, a 220 piece marching band of musicians and a Color Guard. As time goes on, all websites need changing.  As such, the BOSS website needed some updating in both look and feel, information and images.  Few websites do not have to do some regular work, whether it’s a complete makeover or some updating and/or additions, i.e. social media integration.

I was fortunate enough to have spent the entire 2015-2016 season shooting photographs of all the BOSS events, including parades, Disneyland and concerts.  Thus, I had plenty of photographs to choose from.  Furthermore, the old site had most of the information already on it, although some needed updating.  The biggest challenge was organizing the large number of pages that the site contained.  At the time of writing this, we are still flushing this out.

Social Media

The other challenge that we are currently working on the BOSS website redesign is the integration of the website to social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  Throughout the years multiple accounts have been set up on various platforms. We want to integrate them is such a way that current and future users can easily find BOSS.

In addition, BOSS started using Charms Office to communicate and manage all the students and parents within the program.  It is very important that these two platforms work in conjunction with one another.

eCommerce

There is also an online Spirit Wear store coming to the site, where parents and student can purchase shirts, sweatshirt, hats, etc. We are creating a seamless ecommerce store so ordering and fulfillment does not require additional work for the BOSS Boosters.

Finally, at the time this was published the BOSS website redesign is nearly completed.

Website Traffic

Waiting On Traffic For Your Website?

Are you waiting on traffic for your website, wondering where are the visitors are? The reasons are multifaceted, as is the solution.  By breaking the issue down to bit-sized tidbits, we can better identify the solutions.

You already have a website

Ask yourself the following questions:

  1. How Old Is It?  The age of your website can affect your traffic.  Why?  Well, one reason is SEO or Search Engine Optimization.  This is a very fluid field.  How Search Engines index websites is constantly changing.  So, if your website is too old, the Search Engines may be overlooking your website, thus, it’s not generating any traffic.
  2. Is Your Website Optimized for SEO?  SEO is a buzzword thrown about a little too much.  Many believe it’s as simple as putting in a few key words.  Not so.  If it were that simple corporations wouldn’t be spending stupid amounts of money on SEO.
  3. How Often Is Your Website Updated?  A static website is not going to be getting traffic.  It’s like someone sleeping, you’re not going to disturb them.  You’re going to move on to someone that is awake.  So it is with Search Engines and visitors.  If there’s not consistent and new content on your website the people and the Search Engines won’t come to visit.
  4. How Integrated Is Your Website with Social Media?  Most businesses and organization completely miss the bus when it comes to Social Media. The types of posts, frequency, on which platforms, etc., are all important considerations.  Again, far too many people think it’s an easy process and when it doesn’t work they give up on it entirely.

Website Re Design

is something that most businesses and organizations will find themselves facing during their lifetime.  That’s because standards, looks and technology changes over time.  At 3 Penguins Design, we not only design new websites but we also RE-design websites.  In actually, re-design a site is does not really involve the “RE” since we basically design the new site from scratch.

For this website AJ Design called us to collaborate on a new site.  The old site had served Stoll for quite some time but it was ready for a fresh new looked along with some added functionality such as a SEARCH and LOCATOR for their many distributors.

The client wanted a simple and clean front page design along with rotating images. Their individual products along with their search and locator page were the stars.

The status of this website is “Under Construction”. There are a few minor additions coming to this page before we make it LIVE.

UPDATE:  Stoll Trailers goes LIVE – http://www.stolltrailers.com

Again, I (3 Penguins Design) had the great pleasure of collaborating with Andy at AJ Design.

This time it was a law website re design for a law firm in South Carolina. This successful firm had a functional website but it was in need of a complete re-design.

Due to the number of attorneys on staff and the comprehensive areas of law practiced, they need an easily navigated website so potential clients could quickly find what they were looking for.  In doing this we created drop-down menus in various categories and cross-referenced pages on the site.

Despite being a rather large site, finding your way is quite easy.
