New Free Design Skin: Librarian

July 23, 2009
Chadwick Meyer
Several versions of the Librarian design skin are now public. Like most templates we offer automatic design elements or features that are relevant to the organizational type. It's a nice addition to our library and a good contrast with some of the more modern, techy designs we've done recently. We've already had several people choose it for their site, as well as others launch off on customized versions of their own.

New Free Design Skin: San Vito

July 21, 2009

We have 3 new free design skins to add to our Free Design library (follow the link to see which are still pending). The San Vito was named after a small town where the designer spent a week with good friends drinking cappuccino in the piazza del popolo, waking to the chimes of the ancient bell tower and enjoying the slow life of Northern Italy. The template is now installed and ready for public use, the others should be live shortly. Like all three new designs, the San Vito is warm, textured, with a feeling of history. We hope it will appeal ...

Empower Your Customers

July 17, 2009

I recently had a frustrating (and learning) experience with DMOZ, the open directory project. This is a directory listings service that feeds information to major search engines. It is staffed by a group of fifty thousand volunteers that review website submissions to specific categories, and when approved they provide a link to your site in that category. It's recommended to list your site with DMOZ, but it can take months or years to be approved because of the inefficient nature of this volunteer project. In fact your site can be rejected ...

Listen to Your Customers

Quick tip, look up your business on yelp.com and see what your customers are saying about  you. This can be a great source of free feedback, and will enlighten  you to some of your strengths and weaknesses. If you aren't listed yet, create an account and add your business. You shouldn't review your own business, but you should definitely invite your loyal customers to give you some reviews. As a matter of practice, after you finish interacting with a customer, suggest that they leave you some feedback on Yelp.

The Incalculable Worth of Good Branding and Marketing

July 10, 2009
Chadwick Meyer
Over the years we have developed a very capable product and have consistently offered high end personal service and support for our clients. We have a very loyal client base because we make it a point to go above and beyond all the time. We are in this for the long run and our goal in business is not to make money but to provide an excellent product to our clients, knowing that this approach will be profitable. But despite these things, we have learned the hard way that you can have the best product or service in the world, at the best price, ...

City Church San Francisco Gets New Site

July 08, 2009
Chadwick Meyer
Congratulations to City Church of San Francisco on their new website. Credit goes to Steven (who added all the content and I presume also took all the beautiful photos). Gutensite provided a nice home page design and secondary page "shell" that allowed them to add unique images to each page (or select a random one from a default set if no specific image has been set) in order to give each page a unique feeling. They added their own content and we "massaged" their pages when they were done. Most of the dynamic content (e.g. non "Basic Pages" ...
