Building a Website for a Los Angeles Building Contractor

John Stone, Owner of STONE Construction Company in Los Angeles, CA came to me to build a new Business Catalyst website to boost his brand name recognition and improve the visibility of his company in search engines.  As an integral part of his new site, catering to John's need to maintain a gallery of work himself, I developed a great tool using the Business Catalyst WebApps framework.  The customized Web App will allow him the control to easily create, maintain, update and catalog his portfolio of before, during and after photography so visitors can see some of the amazing home remodels and commercial developments he's completed for his clients.

Now is the Time to Update Your Copyright on Your Website

It's a brand New Year.  Time to set those New Year's resolutions, organize your closet, and probably head to the gym.  While you are re-setting your life you should add one more item to your To Do List: Update the copyright year on your website. Yes, that little footnote on your website pages. This symbol ©. The one that protects all the content, logos, images, and everything else that you have on your site.

Wheel Concept Rolls in with a New E-Commerce Website Request

In collaboration with strategic partner, Dan McNulty of MC Brand Studios, I welcome new client Michael Horowitz from Wheel Concepts of Camarillo, CA to the studios of IAMTEEJAY. Wheel Concepts has been the industry leader in decorative chrome plating for the automotive and aftermarket wheel industries. Since 1977, they've been providing both chrome-plated and OEM alloy wheels and wheel accessories across the US and internationally. One of the keys to their success is having their inventory readily searchable in their vast factory OEM Core Bank consisting of thousands of wheels. Unfortunately, their current website on the WordPress platform with its WooCommerce plugin has become defunct and inoperable.  They have requested a better solution for their online sales and marketing needs.

An Important Creative Collaboration

People ask me if I will be going out of business soon since technology allows would-be clients to choose a design, upload content, and manage a website on their own. My reply to them is that I will not. Despite the value of being able to develop and manage one’s own online presence with a certain degree of ease, it still eludes most independent business owners who are short on staff and individuals with busy schedules.

Websites for Creatives

I was a stranger in a strange land. After moving to Los Angeles in 1998, I had to find a way to reach out and find my first customers. Fortunately, being a roadie to a couple of Hollywood bands and having my own band in Culver City, I was exposed to a large number of creatives. These potential clients were just then getting to understand how this “new” technology would help them market themselves more effectively. What better way was there than to offer 10-free website designs to those around me. After having a pivotal lunch with writer, music art critic, and artist representative, Craig Stephens, I was introduced to his clientele, some of whom would become my first clients. This group included Robert Reynolds, Jeremy Kidd, Richard and JoAnn Patterson.
