Our most recent websites and blogs…
We listen carefully to every client and create a website or blog that meets their needs. Some we create from scratch and we have replaced outdated websites with a new WordPress website. I help clients set up accounts for hosting their website for as little as $5.95/month. We set up email services that match their domain name and some clients choose to access their email through a free email client like Google’s gmail.
Paul C Aspelin recently wrote his first book titled The Underwater Social:Create Your Own Housing Bailout. We are marketing the book and his real estate insight on www.underwatersocial.com. Readers can buy the book online from this website or directly from Amazon.com. We set up a PayPal account and downloaded their PayHere app so we can accept credit card payments in person using our smart phones. In the future we will be adding mp3 files of his radio interviews and create informative and entertaining interview videos. We also created a Facebook Page, Underwater Social, with a custom Cover Image to match the website header. Paul is adding blog posts weekly as part of the book launch marketing campaign.
A beautiful site to look at because of the ART. I was asked to create a website for this annual event in Carver County and was thrilled to work on the project. The organizers are now managing the site and making updates as necessary. Lots of photos on this site. Each artist has their own page, optimizing SEO.
We transformed Cathy’s original site with a third party blog provider into one WordPress site. It didn’t take long to move the content over to her new site. Now the colors match her brand. Eventually Cathy will add her own blog posts. We added a page just for her weekly Radio Show. We made two videos to showcase her two main types of services for her clients. She shows the videos during presentations and networking events.
Bill Hughes was referred to me by his daughter, Melissa Carlson in my Women in Networking Chapter. I am so thankful to Melissa because Bill was an absolute delight to work with. Bill has been a booking agent for bands and entertainers for the majority of his working life and now he is branching out on his own. His goal was to have a professional looking website to highlight his services. We are also working on a brochure that includes a talent roster he can use when he calls on nightclubs, casino’s and other venues.
“Michelle is excellent at web design and marketing. I couldn’t have asked for more. It can’t be done any better than she does it!” ~ Bill Hughes
Pam was referred to us by a past client. Her and her husband Mark needed a website to showcase their beautiful pottery. As former owners of the Mocha Monkey in Waconia, they are now focusing on their new company and making pottery together. We chose a narrow website with a black background to highlight the pottery. Pam had professional photos taken, money well spent. We added a slideshow of 20 images and still images on the Gallery page. We kept it simple, yet effective.
“Michelle was a pleasure to work with. She made everything easy with clear explanation, thoroughness and quick turnaround. I highly recommend Michelle.” -Pam Braunwarth, owner of Oliver Clay Co.
Michelle Nash already had a website for her residential care homes, but the designer was hard to reach and she couldn’t do any of the edits herself. After helping her set up a Facebook page, she came back about 2 months later and asked if we could make her a new website, and so we did. We designed it to look like her old site. We made a few recommendations for additional content, made sure it could be accessed on a mobile device and trained Michelle so she can make edits herself moving forward.
Karen was referred to me by a past client. She had attended a class on how to make websites and she made one for her professional counseling business. However, she wasn’t coming up on Google’s search engines. I explained that she could purchase search optimization services, or built a new site that is already search engine friendly for a one-time investment. Since she wasn’t thrilled with her design, we moved forward to create a simple WordPress website that would explain her services.
“Michelle did a great job! She helped me rework my web site so that it gets more visability and better reflects my business and expertise. She was detail oriented, easy to work with, and intuitive in understanding my needs, personality and what I wanted for my site. I would highly recommend her.” -Karen Brinkman, owner of New Perspective Counseling
HuHul-Kin Rays of the Sun is a start-up non-profit organization that needed a logo, letterhead, business cards and a website. We loaded this one up with photos and a slideshow and used the sunburst theme on their business cards, logo and letterhead.
Victoria Mental Health needed an updated website that was more search engine friendly. We created this sleek site and filled it with keywords to help get them found on the internet!
“Michelle Aspelin is incredibly responsive – getting back to me – sometimes in less than an hour to inform me what her process is and how she will approach the task at hand. She is patient, personable and knowledgeable about how to market my business effectively in a tough econonmy, yet do it in a cost-effective manner – something that few people can do currently. I am well pleased with the work Ms. Aspelin has done and feel confident about utlizing her services in the future as well.” -Greg Walsh, owner of Victoria Mental Health Services
Refine Laser and Electrolysis wanted to have an updated website that was search engine friendly and reduce their monthly hosting costs. We worked together to create a website with the color scheme they wanted and functionality. They are maintaining the website themselves and adding blog posts.
We converted an outdated website into this WordPress website that showcases the work done at Superior Manufacturing Corp. in St. Louis Park, MN.
Stephanie’s blog explains the advantages of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. We created a simple style that matches her personality and her business. Stephanie will make her own posts and maintain her WordPress website.
This website was created for the City of Victoria to assist with the communication to Victoria residents, businesses and commuters about Hwy. 5 road construction in 2012. We added a link to Twitter for MNDot updates, a business directory and calendar of events.
“Michelle was instrumental in making our website a reality. She is detail focused and provided us with many options to create the look and feel of our website. Her follow-up since the creation of the site has helped keep it looking fresh and up-to-date.”- Holly Kreft, Community Development Director for the City of Victoria
Assisted with the redesign of the website for the Victoria Business Owners Association. They had a WordPress site already and we added more functionality, updated the theme and appearance, made it easier to navigate and now we work together to keep the site up-to-date.
We converted their Go Daddy website to a WordPress website so we could capture more leads from internet searches that were going to a lead reseller. We focused the design to our target market and are adding more photos and a virtual tour of each home.
A WordPress website created for this unique program sponsored in part by the Arts Consortium of Carver County. An excellent example of a colorful website used to pull the community together for this fun project. Created a slideshow of quilt patterns on the sidebar of the website. Check out their video on the Completed Videos page too!
This is a simple website created for a local piano teacher. She wanted to have a site to help her find new students on the Internet and post her newsletter to her students electronically. The photo in the header of the site is her personal piano in her home studio. Barb had this to say, “Michelle’s work is outstanding! She understands technology, marketing and anticipates the current and future needs of her clients! Plus, she is delightful to work with!”
An easy to navigate WordPress website for the Arts Consortium of Carver County. Lots of posts about upcoming events and multiple pages for Artist and Organization members. Event page is very popular. Mindshare maintains this website for the ACCC. Facebook link.
“Michelle is extremely professional and organized. She was able to understand our needs and created a website that is exactly what we were looking for. Her clear proposal provided us with a time line and costs that helped us with our budget. Her quick response to additions and changes to the website gave us confidence our project would be successful.” -Suzanne Thiesfeld, founding member of the Arts Consortium of Carver County
Jane Friedman of Redo Your View Designs of Minnetonka MN needed a website that WORKS for her. We made a site to show off her beautiful custom draperies and window treatments. More enhancements to come like a slideshow of her recent work in the sidebar.
A robust community website, shows examples of photography, videos, interviews, coupons, done by Mindshare. Website was created in collaboration with another web designer. Most popular pages are the Coupons and Event Calendar. Local businesses become members on the site giving them the ability to post up to 2 articles a month, events and coupons.
