Benton Targeted SEO

Play Town is an imaginative play center disgned for parents and children to play together and learn.  They offer an indoor interactive town with 16 centers, a fenced-in area geared toward your little ones aged 6 months to 36 months called our Kiddie Corral, and padded flooring. After temporarily shutting down for COVID-19, Play Town was ready to leave their outdated website in the past and reopen with a new website.  After decreasing their page load speed to 1.5 seconds I optimized their landing page for local SEO.

With a rapidly growing dance studio in Benton Arkansas, Chelsea Gilbreath was ready to step up her web presence. Dancer’s Edge Benton had previous experiences with websites and digital business tools that caused them to be weary of getting a new website, but I eased them through the process and provided a state-of-the-art digital presence that helps them stand out from every other dance studio in the Central Arkansas.

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.

This small business wanted consistent branding across digital and print mediums. Starting with a new local SEO focused website design, the client asked me to follow up with graphic designs for targeted print mailers to the local community. Getting to number 3 on Google was a bonus.

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.
