Lead Tracking for Medicare Supplement Website

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Venuecom and Impulse Web Solutions have completed an overhaul of the website turning65nc.com.  Though the site looks almost exactly the same as it did before, major changes have been made on the back end.

The changes were initially brought about because the client wished to be able to track leads coming into the site.  A separate website, medicaresupplementsforless.com, was initially going to be built based off of the the original website, but after some discussion the decision was made to redirect turning65nc.com (which caused confusion for people already over the age of 65, since the website was for them as well) to the newer medicaresupplementsforless.com site.

In addition to adding a way to track leads, the code of the site was updated to be 100% W3C compliant and the design was widened to fit within a 1024 x 768 resolution monitor, which is now much more common than 800 x 600 resolution screens were when the site was initially built.

Since the site was undergoing a major coding overhaul, the opportunity was taken to also connect it to the Venue Editor, Venuecom’s content management system (CMS).  This will gives the client the ability to personally manage most of the content of their website going forward.

Myrtle Beach Golf Experience Website Design

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Impulse Web Solutions and Venue Communications, Wilmington NC web design companies, are teaming up once again, this time to design a new website for the Myrtle Beach Golf Experience.

The original website was hastily thrown together and added on to as necessary.  The new website will feature a fresh design and focus on informing visitors about golf courses, hotels, resorts, dining and other things to do when visiting Myrtle Beach, SC.

The content of the newly designed Myrtle Beach Golf Experience website will be driven by Venuecom’s content management system and news feed plugin, giving the site owners freedom to update pages and articles on the site without having to go through their webmasters.

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.
