I just wrapped up a new website design and branding project for Urban Dixie Boutique. This is the type of boutique project I LOVE to work on! Robin and Christy are amazing clients and I’m so happy to bring their whole project together so they have a cohesive look, logo and image. I designed them a custom Shopify theme and installed many apps that will make their site a success. I focused on social media to build their presence. They will have a retail location in Spring, Texas opening soon. Read more “Urban Dixie Boutique Custom Design”
There are 15 days until Christmas and that means there’s still time to make a holiday marketing plan. My previous client campaigns to promote your items to your customers are a great resource!
The Twelve Days of Christmas campaign 2012 for Paula & Chlo was so fun and colorful! I helped her come up with the best products to promote and how to present them for each one of the daily deals. There were also coordinating email newsletters that went out daily to remind her customers of the daily deals. This campaign consisted of a website landing page with flip calendar numbers and multiple marketing images. Read more “12 Days of Christmas Landing Page Ideas”

Okay, so you have a new website or even an older one. Do know how Google is seeing your website? With Google Webmasters tools you can check the health of your website and keep your site from major errors with Google Search.
The most important part of having a webmaster tools account is to make sure your robots.txt file is searchable by Google and view any crawl errors and 404 errors. Those can be fixed easily by your developer who is knowledgeable in redirects and how to fix those errors in webmaster tools (like me).
How To Set Up a Google Webmaster Tools Account
- Where to Sign Up for Google Webmaster Tools: https://www.google.com/webmasters/. You need a Google account to do this.
- After you sign in, click on add a site.
- Verify that you’re the owner of the site by doing one of the following: (this step is where I have my clients send me the file to upload to their server).
- Upload a file to your server
- Add a meta tag to your website’s HTML
- Add a new DNS record
- Use your Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager account
Once you’ve done this, you can start to manage and monitor your website!

I recently completed 3 new eCommerce websites using Magento. Each client has had need for a large product inventory and a professional web presence. I’m using Magento sites for my clients that require a shopping cart. Magento is a solid web application that provides a consistent experience for both the shopping customer and the clients using the administration. Magento is the way to go for a shopping cart whether you have 50 products or 1000’s. Each client required special features, design and extensions for their sites. I’ll post more about each project individually.
