More Lookbooks!

My Saint My Hero’s latest Lookbook showcases their Winter collection of inspirational jewelry on their WordPress website. Each popup box features a beautiful photo of the jewelry worn by a model. Descriptive text describes each jewelry product featured in the photo, and links to the product page on the website, making it easy to complete the purchase.

Caoch Lisa Walker WOrdPress website updates by Patricia Gill - saidthespider.netLisa Walker, a Business Coach in Orange County, California, did a great job creating a website using a WordPress theme she liked…except for the colors. She wanted the blue areas to be brown, and the brown areas to be blue, only a little more blue. I added some custom CSS code, and like magic, the colors were reversed, and the blue – bluer.

Sometimes WordPress theme interfaces are a bit difficult to fathom, so I provided Lisa with a step-by-step tutorial on how to update the text in certain areas of the site.

Jackie the Artist sells prints online

Jackie the Artist sells prints online

A few years ago I developed a website to showcase Jackie Randel’s artwork. It was a simple site with a homepage slideshow. Jackie wasn’t sure if she wanted to sell gicléé prints of her pastel paintings on the Internet so we posted a note to call Jackie for information about buying prints and original works of art.

WordPress-WooCommerce shopping website for jackietheartist.com - developed by Patricia Gill saidthespider.netSkip ahead a few years and welcome WooCommerce to jackietheartist.com. I added a shopping function to Jackie’s site with payments through PayPal, and simple flat rate shipping. Now lovers of colorful floral and abstract images can appreciate and buy Jackie’s work online. Easy peasy.

The next step is promoting Jackie’s website with search engine optimization and social media. We setup a Facebook page for Jackie to post images of her latest work, and inspiration she finds around her.

If you are a small seller on a limited budget WordPress and WooCommerce are a powerful combination for putting your wares before the buying public. A simple website will showcase your products, and WooCommerce will take care of the back-end. Contact us to talk about your idea for taking on the world of ecommerce.

In August 2014 I launched an updated pvhigh.com website on WordPress using Kopa’s Open Times theme. After more than a year and a half the site is still vibrant and dynamic, with continual additions to functionality and presentation. Additions to the homepage slider include a banner area above the slider for special promotions, and most recently, a scrolling news ticker highlighting NCAA Day students.

Social media feeds including Instagram and Twitter, daily weather updates, claendars, and more keep students, parents, and staff in the know on pvhigh.com.
