Norwalk Easter Public Library Website

Norwalk Easter Public Library Website

The Norwalk Public Library used to have its web presence on the City of Norwalk’s website, but due to having a large amount of information to share, it needed more room to spread out. I moved the content from the old site into a new draft, and I used the bright and colorful new logo they commissioned as a jumping off point to design a vibrant and user-friendly website that is easy to navigate through their many programs and offerings. I love the color palette!

We later heard that Niche Academy, the third-party provider of the Tutorials section of the website, uses this website as a model of what successful integration looks like and how it works for library patrons.

Lowe Chiropractic Clinic Website

Lowe Chiropractic Clinic Website

Dr. Clayton Lowe of Lowe Chiropractic Clinic in Winterset had a website with good information that had fallen out of date. When visitors landed on the site they were greeted with a message about needing to install Flash in order to see it (an older web technology no longer supported). So, I gathered the content from the old site and brought it into a new, mobile friendly design with WordPress. The updated website is bright, cheery and inviting, just like the clinic it represents. No more “Flash.”

Group Dynamic Website

Alan Feirer is a trainer and consultant who has been blogging for many years. The goal of this website is to showcase his engaging presentation style, make it easy to sign up for his blog by email, and make sure organizations that need training and development are able to find him when searching online.

Blood Sweat & Beers 5K Website

This website allows visitors to fill out an application for assistance, donate to the cause, sign up for the event, or just learn more about how to get involved with the Family Cancer Network.

First Lutheran | Christ the Servant Website

First Lutheran and Christ the Servant are two faith communities, one in Chariton and the other in Corydon. They share one pastor, and one website.

Church websites are unique because they have two different primary audiences: members and visitors. The members use the website as a hub of information, watching to see special announcements about upcoming programs, meetings, and more. Visitors mainly want to know the denomination of the church, what time worship takes place, and how to locate it. The website aims to provide an open and friendly welcome to both, with an emphasis on being easy to navigate.

Bed & Breakfast by JASS Website

Bed & Breakfast by JASS is a quaint and rustic-chic property conveniently located on the north side of Winterset in Madison County. Although it had been in business for several years, they only had a Facebook page for some time, and felt they might be missing some opportunities by not having a website.

Having a website in addition to a Facebook page allows you to showcase information in a layout that makes sense for your business, and leads people through your whole story instead of just what’s happening right now. In this case, the website allows them to feature full-size images of the beautifully decorated rooms in their renovated historic property. It also answers frequently asked questions about their policies.

The owners have reported a great increase in bookings now that people can see the details of the property, and their online visibility on Google has improved too.

Marianne Fons Website

Marianne Fons is internationally famous in the quilting industry, and we are lucky to have her spending her “retirement” here in her hometown of Winterset. (In her spare time she has helped to establish the Iowa Quilt Museum in Winterset, along with refurbishing our historic Iowa Theater.) As a longtime writer and recent novelist, Marianne was interested in setting up a blog website to share her ongoing thoughts on a myriad of subjects: quilting, reading, writing, the joys of living in small-town Iowa, and more.

I built the framework of the blog for Marianne and then provided training for her to continue the blogging process. It quickly escalated to hundreds of subscribers, and we have integrated it with MailChimp for easy notification and delivery of new posts.

Cru9 Wine Website

The former Cru9 Wine website had grown out of date, and its online sales function was cumbersome. The owner contacted me to create an updated website to showcase her wines, as well as integrate with an industry-specific online sales platform called VinoShipper. With VinoShipper she can add information about new wines as they are produced, as well as set up club pricing and run specials. This automatically feeds to the website, which we keep updated regularly with new photos and information.

Covered Bridge Realty Website

Covered Bridge Realty is a busy office with several realtors, primarily doing business in Madison County, Iowa. Their previous website was hard to keep updated due to the rapidly changing information in their business.

In order to keep their listings fresh and up-to-date, their new website uses a third party application called iHomefinder integrated with a WordPress website. New listings feed into the site as they are entered to the MLS through the Des Moines Area Association of Realtors. Listings also fall off when sold, as well as indicating price declines and open houses, etc. Visitors can create an account to “favorite” properties for future visits.

Homefront Real Estate Website

Real estate websites have highly technical needs. Making sure that current listings and their frequent changes are pulled in automatically involves integrating the software with the IDX provider (in this case, the IDX provider is DMAAR). Real estate agents have enough to do without figuring out how this works!

I partnered with Homefront Real Estate to provide ongoing website maintenance and technical support while they do what they do best — sell houses.
