New Website Launch for Paws Place in Wilmington, NC!

Impact Media launches a new website for Paws Place, an Animal Rescue Shelter serving Wilmington & Brunswick County since 1999. We took this site on as one of our Charities for the year, we love animals and these folks help them more than you know! Paws Place is a No-Kill Shelter that has found homes for over 250 dogs. We not only re-designed the website, but put it into a wordpress platform for easy Content Management for them to be able update their site when they get a new rescue. Their new site is linked to Twitter and Facebook, so that when they post a new Dog it syndicates directly to these Social Media Outlets and their Followers and Fans can see right away who needs rescuing and spread the word. This is truly a great cause and we hope we have given them a great tool to aide them with this cause! Thank you Paws Place for all you do!

New Restaurant Custom Web Design!

Impact Media has launched another Restaurant Website, we are really having a run on these this year! We like working with restaurants, they usually give us deals on food and drinks, which we LOVE!!! This website however is on a Brand New BBQ Restaurant in Atlanta GA, Evans BBQ! We have not been there to try it out, but just reading the menu made me want to hop in the car. This is a custom designed website that we chose to build on the WordPress platform for ease of management for the owners of the Restaurant. They have the ability to login and update their menu via the Content Management System at anytime or any of the other pages without having to email, or call us and wait on the updates. We wish you much success Alicia and Michael and look forward to trying out some of your specials when we are down that way for a conference very soon!

New Website Launch for MyHealthyBites.com | Web Design & SEO

Impact Media Solutions launches a new website dealing with Nutrition! MyHealthyBites.com is a website that offers information on increased web being through proper nutrition and exercise. Our team here at the office enjoyed working on this website as we all could stand to learn a little more about proper Nutrition and MyHealthyBites.com has helped us set some goals to take better care of ourselves. When MyHealthyBites.com first came to us they were looking for a fresh clean design that would allow for them to effectively communicate with their audience via the Website, Facebook and Twitter. We developed a website that would syndicate the information that they were posting to all of their Social Media Extensions and extend their reach beyond just their website, without having to go and repost their information over and over again. We wish them the best of luck with their endeavors and hope you get as much from them as we did!

Google Apps in Wilmington NC

Google Apps Wilmington NC
Google Apps

Impact Media Solutions is now a Certified Google Apps Reseller offering the latest of what Google has to offer to our clients in Wilmington, NC. We chose Google Apps as a platform to offer our clients because of the ease of ongoing maintenance, security and wide range of mobile products that it supports. Google Apps is an online suite that offers centralized Email with advanced features for you with a LARGE quota! You can manage SPAM in a more effective permanent and secure manner. There is an integrated Calendar that you easily integrates with Outlook and your Smart phone, whatever Smartphone you may have. It is very easy to use and comes with loads of features for your office and personal life. Then we have Google Docs, which allows you to store and share files with associates, which makes sending large files that do not go through a thing of the past, it also is a lot more secure then email. One of the things I like most about Google Apps is the Development Community that is creating tools that contribute to Google Apps, they offer a lot of the tools that many of us use in many different places in one simple to use place, all integrated into one simple to use place, such as CRM (Client Relationship Management), Project Management, Accounting Tools, Bulk Mail, Off Site Backup and many more! The best thing about Google Apps is that the price per user starts @ $5.00/month, it really does not get much cheaper than that for the amount of access and tools that you receive. If you are interested or would like to learn more about Google Apps, please let me know and I will be happy to assist you.

User Testing Web Design

When you are designing or re-designing your site you want it to look good, but there are other factors to take into consideration. The biggest of course is that you want it to produce revenue, either through lead conversion, or merchandise transactions, that is why making your site user friendly should take precedence over everything else. This is not a onetime endeavor however, when your site goes live you should be monitoring how people are using it and where you can make improvements. You should treat it like a living extension of your business. If you respond to your clients by making a better site by catering to them, they will respond by using your services more often, it is that simple. We use tools like Heat Maps (Pictured Below) and Analytics, along with various other tools to accomplish these tasks. Ongoing user testing will produce a better website for your business and in turn grow your business beyond what you have seen before. This is not a new idea, it is something that most successful webmasters do for their clients already in various programs. If you are interested in learning more about User Testing on your website or other programs such SEO (Search Engine Optimization), SEM (Search Engine Marketing) or even just setting up Analytics on your site please me know and I will be happy to help.
