Returning client with an additional business enterprise needed a purchased template to reflect his business model. It went from a ski wear site to a emergency preparedness site.
The template is below:
Been working on setting up this new portal for Sin City Delights, working hard on finding the best avenue to sell their amazing product line. The last version was a step forward, but this one is the icing on the cake and can only get better.
There might be some tweaks here and there, but I think we finally hit our groove. We launched the original version back in December/11 and it started doing more business than the old version did all year.
Unfortunately a problematic Paypal, with it’s often impossible to reason customer service, put up a barrier for business on the site. We moved on to Amazon Payments with an adjusted version of the site that brought on yet another surge of business (above).
This has been a living experiment and while the goal has been to sell product on this site, it has also been a test to find the most hospitable environment and strongest platform for product sales. This new POS system will use Authorize.Net. We peeled away from Amazon only because it was requiring buyers to have an Amazon account.
The new version of the site will launch next week and will hopefully really bring a lot of momentum to sales.
The latest piece is taking shape and needs it’s final direction. I believe this piece will look good mounted on the wall as well as sitting on a floor.
It is life size and the base will have a flat, black veneer while the overall piece will be gold with heavy black shadowing. The sketch above is just a point of view and will stand about 2 feet off the ground from top to bottom.
While the message or the way it is delivered has shifted the basic elements have remained the same. The goal is to keep it clean and not contrived.
Less than a year ago I contracted with this freelance client to build their first step into online internet retail sales.
Updated Site Design / Shopping Cart
This is the latest version. I had to build a new shopping cart system quickly. The Paypal cart that was was installed fell out; Paypal has been unreliable. However, this elected to go with Amazon Payments which turned out to be much better.
Not to waste your time on the interim design. The original design is something to see and I welcome any thoughts.
I also manage this client’s social media; mostly Facebook and Twitter. There is a Yelp and a few other channels I post in for them.
Over Christmas 2011 into late January 2012 I was working with a couple of guys on a pretty major project. They needed to be able to demonstrate how their concept would work in their industry.
The client was very focused on using an industry site as the model for their product. We used some new images, particularly the pop of color with the Golden Gate Bridge. Below is the site they asked me to use as a model.
