Benton Targeted SEO

The Downtown Benton Association has been slowly growing through word of mouth marketing for several years, but wanted to branch out into the digital space. While revamping their Benton website design, I decreased their page load speed and optimized their landing pages for SEO. A few months after launching the new website design, we even added eCommerce capability to simplify their operations.

Jerry Ponder came to me because he saw an opportunity to run for Mayor of the City of Benton. He knew he needed a consistent brand message and superior online presence to be competitive in today’s market. I designed his physical and digital brand from the ground up. I also managed all of his digital marketing efforts. Even though he didn’t win, he was the only candidate to reach over 30,000 people using only a few hundred dollars in Facebook advertising. He was also the only candidate with an eCommerce store selling campaign swag and accepting donations.

A few friends and I started an online Christian T-Shirt brand called Theology Attire. We don’t do a whole lot with it these days, but it’s one of my favorite online stores to shop in. This nationwide eCommerce store takes a modern, crisp, product-first website design approach to an antiquated market. When you browse through the collections, you will be drawn first to the artwork and second to the product. This store is all about perfecting the user’s digital shopping experience.
