New website design for Coastal Carolina Fisherman, which is an online Fishing Magazine serving North & South Carolina. This site has been up for just over 4 years and has really started to spread its wings. We designed the original website design & logo design, as well , as well as this newer version of the website & logo. The guys involved in this site are great to work with and they even catch fish when we go out with them sometimes. What we found from working with them on their site, is that they were trying to put too much information out there on the home page, and they ended up with a cluttered site at the end of the day. With their new website design we have streamlined it and made it very easy to navigate and read articles, as well as display their sponsors, which is very important to any magazine, online or otherwise. We hope you enjoy this new version of the Coastal Carolina Fisherman Website.

Unfamiliar with WordPress? According to Wikipedia,
“WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. WordPress was used by more than 23.3% of the top 10 million websites as of January 2015″
WordPress started in 2003 and has become a strong tool in the hands of web developers. With WordPress, Impact Media Solutions is able to create a professional, clean, mobile-friendly website that works well with Google and the other search engines, all for a cost that is less than a built from scratch custom website.
Add to that the additional benefit of a 10% off discount, and that’s what we call a win-win.
How can you qualify for the 10% off discount? Receive and agree to a WordPress website proposal between now and August 31, and we will take 10% off the web development costs. It’s that simple.
Here are a few examples of great websites we have developed with WordPress:
Can I update my own website?
WordPress websites are crazy easy to manage, even for unexperienced users. If you are able to use Microsoft Word, then you will have no problem with the WordPress admin panel.
To get started and claim your 10% discount, contact us for a free website consultation, and we will help you get the process started.
The Riverboat Landing holds a special place with us here @ Impact Media, they were the second website we ever did professionally back in 2004, and they have been through several website re-designs with us through the times. This restaurant is a historic landmark in Wilmington, NC and if you have never been there, then I would encourage you to do so. On this website design we used responsive web design, and modernized the website design for today’s devices.
If you have worked with Impact Media Solutions over the last couple of years, you know that we have been preparing our clients for mobile optimization for multiple reasons that benefit their business.
The first and most important is that we see search engine and website traffic analytics every day and have a front row seat to watch the mobile dominance trend: now more than 50% of internet traffic is happening from a mobile device or tablet.
This is not a trend to be taken lightly. Usability is one of the key ingredients to any good website design, and if your website does not optimize for mobile devices it is scoring low in the usability rankings.
The second important reason is that GOOGLE has been giving favor in the rankings to sites with responsive web design, and they are about to tip the scales even further in that direction. This month GOOGLE will release a new algorithm update that will weigh even heavier on websites being designed for mobile devices. This change will occur on April 21st and we expect big shifts in the search engine rankings based on mobile responsiveness. Mobile responsive websites will enjoy a nice bump upwards, while unresponsive sites will suffer a slide down in search engine ranking.
There are many ways to accomplish mobile responsive web design, and while most client’s needs are similar, none are exactly the same, so there is no “One Size Fits All” when it comes to responsive web design. We recommend having your business and website evaluated to determine the best sustainable solution for your enterprise.
Is your site ready for April 21st? Let us help. Contact us and be prepared.
