10% off WordPress websites for August

August is here, the eighth month of the year, which means summer is almost over, school is starting soon, and storm season is setting in. We want to make your August a little better, which is why we are offering a 10% discount on all new WordPress websites the entire month of August.

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.

A Web Design Firm’s Essential Outdoor Gear List

By virtue of being web design and IT pros, we live indoors more than we would like.

When the flourescent lights and monitors just aren’t cutting it and we start craving sunshine, we get to enjoy the incredible outdoor paradise that our fair town Wilmington, NC offers.

This list is a compilation of “that is crazy cool and I want it” outdoor gear to enhance our experience in and around Wilmington.

We apologize in advance for creating discontentment and longing.


1. True Wetsuits by QuikSilver

Surf like a boss.

Full bore wetsuits that look like you walked out of the boss’s office. Charlotte meets Wrightsville Beach in this new collection from Quiksilver.

2. Sipaboard

Smart SUP

A fold-flat, inflatable paddleboard with a jet-propulsion system that’s controlled via a wifi paddle? I’ll take two, please. You can pre-order this on Kickstarter now, and it would be perfect for lunchtime paddles around Wrightsville Beach.

3. FluidStance

Ok, so this isn’t intended for outdoors, but I wanted to work it in somehow. I’ve been playing around with a standing desk, but this takes the concept to a whole new level. Now on top of my surf picture wallpaper, while working on web design,  I can be surfing….kind of.

4. BioLite Campstoves


On my backpacking trips, phone battery life has always been an issue. This amazing solution charges your phone via power snatched from the energy released by burning fuel for your campstove. Boil water and replenish your battery! Perfect for weekend excursions at Masonboro Island or Carolina Beach State Park.

5. Phantom 2

If you’ve spent any time with Impact Media, you know that Brian is a drone nut, and when he isn’t neck deep in web design, you can find him around Wilmington nabbing some incredible aerial footage.  The Phantom 2 is our drone of choice.


This list is by no means exhaustive, but it reflects the coolest in outdoor tech that we’ve seen recently. What would you add to the list? Hit up our facebook page and let us know.

Work hard, play harder!

New Website Launch for RM Services in Wilmington, NC

Impact Media Solutions launches a new website for RM Services & Sales in Wilmington, NC. RM is a Restaurant Supply and Service company that is on a growth track! They have recently opened a new retail outlet and have expanded their offerings to their clients in the Wilmington area. RM came to Impact Media because they were looking for a fresh new look for their current website and Internet Marketing help, which was stale and really did not reflect the excitement that is going on at their company with all of the changes they are making, so we worked with them to provide a website that would allow them to show off their new store and the equipment that they have available to their clients and  our photographer got some great shots of their store and equipment.

This site was phase I of a multi phase project, the next phase will be to take the site to a full blown eCommerce website so that clients can order online, this will be coming in 2012, so stay tuned for more about RM Services & Sales!

Real Estate Web Design in Wilmington, NC

Impact Media Solutions has just launched a new Real Estate website for David Cummings @ Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty. When David came to us he was looking for a unique way to serve the needs of his clients in his niche market of short sales and foreclosures. He already had a successful business going before needing a website, but realized that he could do a lot more with the tools we were able to provide to him with the IDX searching and Integrated communications platform that allows him to stay in contact with his clients on an ongoing basis even after the sell. We developed his new site to the latest standards for web design and have shown him ways to use his BLOG in conjunction with other social media outlets to maximize his efforts and build his web presence. We really have enjoyed working with David, he is taking what we have shown him to new levels and doing a great job!

Wilmington NC Web Design and SEO for Dentists

We just launched this new site for a great dentist in the area Dr. Dan K Dube. This has been a fun project to work on and we are still collecting photos for the “Smile Gallery” and a few other items, but all in all, it has gone great! He and his team have been great to communicate and collaborate with from logo design and web design to the internet marketing that will take place once the site is fully complete. When designing this site we wanted to make it user friendly, but we also wanted to make it SEO (search engine) friendly as well, and over the next few months we should be able to tell how successful we were with both of these efforts. Please let us know what you think.
