CO2Meter.com. This client wanted to sell indoor air quality products online. The goal was pure e-commerce. Over the last 6 months, through a combination of trade shows and targeted Google Adwords, sales have risen 1,500%. In addition, if you Goggle"CO2 Meter" you'll see this web site ranks in the top few positions on the first page.
MilitaryVehichleWeb.com This ongoing project was designed to promote a conversion from a hobby to a real, online business. The client spent very little money on this wordpress template-based site, and was taught how to update it on their own.
JenniferTremaine.com. The client started with no presence on Google. We started SEO with new marketing copy using targeted keywords, new photography and branding, new content-rich pages, social media and a link-building campaign. Jennifer now ranks on the first or second page of Google for all her keywords.
JDPhotoImaging.com. I served as the liason between the client who was looking for a complete website redesign, and the company contracted to actually design the web site. In addition, I wrote 100% of the content for the site, created the blog, and currently write all articles for both the blog and the weekly newsletter.
SignsByCrannie.com. Like most clients, the folks at Signs by Crannie had lots of ideas but no one to crystalize them into words. Over two afternoons, I was able to interview the owner, then write all the copy for the website. The client provided raw photography, and I put both together using a commercial Wordpress template. The client has since risen from no website presence in Google to 1st page for many of their search terms.
Westlandcamping.com. This client was looking for a way to integrate constantly changing inventory of RV's entered into a 3rd party application with their web site. That way, they only needed to add new products once, cutting the work in half. In addition, they wanted the site to reflect a "family" image. If you go to Google and type "camper westland mi" you can see we've been able to build natural page rank by content without adwords or an "tricks" some web designers use.
LakeFenton.com. The client needed a quick way to get to the first page of Google for the competitive search term "lake fenton real estate" where he was making most of his sales. I created a basic Wordpress blog, linked it to his MLS inventory, and began writing regular keyword-rich content. In 30 days, not only was this website on the first page of Google, but it was driving targeted traffic to his personal site.
RunyanLakeEast.com. This client was looking for a site to showcase a new housing development. The entire site - from graphics to copy - was designed to evoke a combination of an exclusive, yet family friendly lifestyle.
Autosupplycars.com. Starting with an email that had a login ID and password to a used-car management software program, within a week I had registered a URL, branded the website, written the copy, and had the client showing his entire inventory online.
SundaeCorp.com. With nothing more than an hour-long interview with the client I was able to generate this site. Although it's small, it gave the client a valid web presence and a place to send potential customers.
How I spent the last decade. Purchased by Kodak, ProShots was the original software designed to allow Wedding and Portrait Photographers to use digital images to sell their work and place orders on line. In my opinion ProShots is the granddaddy of all disruptive applications.
If you're a small business person surfing the web, chances are you already have a web site. Some very nice local company built it for you for a few hundred dollars, and you were understandably proud when you first saw it on line. You showed your friends and family, printed the web site URL on all your business cards, and waited confidently for the Internet to grow your business.
Other businesses were making money with their web sites (the trade pubs all said so) -- just not yours. For a year or two you waited. Maybe you even paid that nice local company a few more dollars to jazz up your site with a flashy banner or an on line coupon.
So you got frustrated and quit paying attention to your web site. When someone brings up the subject, you get frustrated. You feel mad. You feel ripped off. Still, whenever you're surfing the web late at night you get the nagging feeling that your great product or service is being held back by not participating in the new economy being generated by the Internet.
The problem is that the nice local company is in the business of selling web sites, not building your business. They build on line Yellow Page ads. Cute, but not very effective.

Problems with a virus? PC slowing down? Here's what I do.
I don't read newspapers or magazines or watch TV. To make up for it, I read these sites daily:
