8th Wonder Redesigned

8th Wonder Spice

I’ve been terribly remiss in not announcing Venuecom’s completion of the redesign of, which is, in my opinion, one of the nicest sites we’ve built recently.  (And, also in my opinion, that’s saying something.)  I’ll chalk it up to Christmastime busy-ness, and I don’t mean shopping.  We’ve been crazy busy lately.

At any rate, 8th Wonder started off as a very simple website several years ago.  The owner just wanted an online presence, not much more than a holding page, so he got a website with his logo at the top, a patterned background and a few pages.  I meant to save a copy of it so I could do another before-and-after video, but I didn’t manage to grab it in time.

Anyway, 8th Wonder was ready to start making a big push and needed a more professional design and the ability to sell their product online.  We wanted to build on the branding established in the company’s name and the beautiful (seriously, very nice) tins the spice comes packaged in to create an old world feel for the website.

Aside from the upgraded design, the 8th Wonder Spice website features a growing list of recipes with which to use the spice and an also-growing list of retailers where you can purchase the product.  If you’re unable to buy find a local retailer, you also have the option of buying the spice or refills (because seriously, the tins are nice and you won’t want to throw them away) online.

Check out the site and feel free to leave some feedback in our comments section.

Wilmington NC Bead Store Redesign

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

Venuecom, our partner web design company, will be redesigning the website for A Place to Bead, a Wilmington, NC bead store.  The site was recently scheduled for redesign, but the project was never completed and it was not what the owner of the store had in mind anyway.

The new website for A Place to Bead will be given a fun, more colorful design.  The owner also wanted to be able to easily handle minor updates herself in order to add dates for jewelry classes or post new pictures, which will easily be handled via the content management system that is included in all sites built by Venuecom and Impulse Web Solutions.  The site will also feature a blog and e-commerce, giving the store the ability to sell its wares online as well as take payments for class registrations.  She will also be switching her email newsletters from manually sending them via her personal email account to using Venuecom’s EMT (email marketing tools) system, which will allow people to sign up for the store’s newsletter online and gives better creative control to the newsletters that are sent.

This website redesign is made more affordable by taking advantage of Venuecom’s website leasing program.  Contact us for details on leasing a website.

Impulse now offers Paypal Integration Services

Friday, April 6th, 2007

We can integrate Paypal Express Checkout into your pre-existing shopping cart to give your site users another secure way of paying for their order. Express Checkout redirects the user to Paypal’s site where they can log in using their existing Paypal account and pay for the order using the money in their account. They are then redirected back to your site to complete the order.

Paypal also offers a Direct Payment option where Paypal processes credit card transactions behind the scenes. This option allows users to never leave your site while Paypal automatically charges their credit card and sends the funds to your Paypal account.

If you need help integrating these solutions into your existing shopping cart or would like for us to develop a shopping car system for you, please use our contact form to send us an email.
