Designed Lead Generating Website For Honda Auto Dealership

                                                                                                                            Auto Dealer Website

A local Honda dealer felt that the website provided by Honda Corp for dealerships was not producing enough leads and sales. I photographed the dealership and staff, developed an SEO strategy and implemented it, then designed and launched the website. Leads started coming in so fast, on the first day of launch, that the dealership thought I was paying friends to inquire about cars. But then they sold two of the most expensive high end Honda sport convertibles made, on the first day of the site launch, to a person inquiring from the new website! The internet sales guy at the dealership later provided a testimonial, ” Thanks Lonn. I Sold A Lot Of Cars From That Website & Made A Lot of Money!” The dealership has since been sold. Launch As Fast As 24 Hours!    Schedule Free Consult

Designed Art Gallery Website For Lead Generation & Sales


                                                                                                                              Art Gallery Website, SEO

A photographer and print artist wanted to sell work online and attract commissions. A website was designed with a custom frame shop where the artists work is shown printed on various media and in various sizes, mounts or frames.  The art can also be ordered on phone cases, pillows, and more.  Content Strategy, Image Design, API’s from external Art Sales Sites were implemented, custom code restructured the API output, and SEO work was done. Lead generation was successful as demonstrated when a site visitor from Connecticut needed to locate a service provider in Toledo to commission a photo and print. The subject of the project was a family heirloom watercolor painting of great value. The goal was to reproduce it faithfully so that more than one family member could enjoy a work owned by a father who had died.

Developed Complex Website For Online Photography School

                                                                                                             Website For Digital Photography School

A world traveled professional photographer had people asking him to teach them digital photography. He wanted to scale and provide video classes online in a subscription model. The previous developer had edited the core code of WordPress and the plugins to make the site work. Routine security updates broke the build.  In three years, no sales ever took place.  I rebuilt the site using a current and well maintained theme with current versions of best in class plugins on a Custom Coded WordPress Child Theme, a WooCommerce Plugin, Membership Plugin, and Several Social Media Plugins. Students began to buy subscriptions. Site visitors could join using existing social media accounts.  Likes and sharing buttons were implemented to allow one click distribution to member social media profiles. More subscriptions resulted. This site can be seen at www.shdlearning.comLaunch As Fast As 24 Hours!  Schedule Free Consult

Closing Notes:

If the maxim in design is that form follows function, then ‘design’ is much more than ‘art’.  Website Design Always Has a Goal in Mind To Increase Leads and Sales!

“Before one can design something, one must understand the function of the thing being designed. An image never stands alone. A product needs a shape, a material, a color, a texture, and so much more. A package not only holds the product, and provides for safe economic shipment but may also provide for retail display, and interact with the customer in the unboxing experience. For all of these reasons, the case studies on this page do not reference art for art’s sake, and reach far beyond the idea that creating an image or page layout is an act unto itself.”    …Lonn Dugan, BIGMARK Digital Marketing, Creator of
