Bridal Elegance Salon has an elegant new website!

Bridal Elegance Salon - homepageStacey Thompson’s bridal salon in Torrance has received accolades from The Knot, and the local newspaper. Now her website reflects the elegance of the bridal gowns she sells.

Using the Nirvana theme from Cryout Creations provided the ability to customize a homepage with a photo slider, and beautiful grid layout of featured photos from each dress line the salon carries. Hover text provides the name of the dress line, and a click takes the viewer to more photos from that line.

The content is kept fresh seasonally with updated photos, and the latest bridal news and photos is found on Stacey;s Facebook and Twitter pages which are linked from icons in the website header and footer.

Visit Stacey’s website, you’ll enjoy the great photos. Make an appointment or stop by the salon if you are getting married, in a wedding, or need a formal dress for a special occasion.

Judy P Apparel | Retail Clothing Sales

Seasonal Updates retail clothing website seasonal updates - saidthespider.netFour to five times a year Judy updates her website with women’s clothing for the new season. Mary Jane O’Brien and I just completed the updates for the Winter, and Resort seasons. Judy’s classic clothing designs are offered in gorgeous new colors, and presented in beautiful photographs taken in lovely settings. Mary Jane has acted as photographer, and graphic artist for many seasons, and her work showcases Judy P Apparel’s styles to their best advantage.

An existing site coded in HTML/CSS, we update the content on without changing the underlying site coding. Last year Mary Jane updated the site design, without changing the layout, and I made the CSS and HTML coding changes.

This season we added a LookBook, and photoshoot video to the site, as well as updating the homepage slideshow with photos of Winter, and Resort season dresses and tops. Then Mary Jane designs and creates eblasts to let Judy’s customers know about the new clothes available.

RBH Insulation | Local Business

Information Leading to Sales

RBH Insulation’s website is now fully responsive! Why is this important? Because when a potential customer is using a mobile device to search for “home insulation” or “RBH Insulation” Google search will not show an unresponsive website in the search results.

We used WordPress to develop the new responsive site, keeping closely with the existing appearance. WordPress was a great choice because the developers will handle software updates to keep current with changes in web technology. That doesn’t mean the site doesn’t need regular monitoring and maintenance, but it can mean that down the road major coding updates may not be necessary at the website level.

The appealing colors and clean design haven’t changed much in 5 years. Most of the changes are under the hood.

Visit the new, responsive, WordPress RBH Insulation website at Go ahead, use your mobile phone or iPad.
