Have Pets? Will Travel. New Pet Friendly Travel Website Launched!


Pet Friendly Travel Website
Check out this great testimonial from Owner Tracey Thompson:
“I can’t tell you how pleased I am with GANZ Media. Our customers have been saying they like that the site is now mobile-friendly. And our advertisers like how easy it is to update their listings and make payments. As my old site was almost 20 year old, the interface of the new site presented a pretty steep learning curve. Aaron was always available to help anytime I had questions, and went out of his way to explain the new site with patience and good humor. Thank you GANZ Media!”

Description: An extensive online guide to pet-friendly lodging in the U.S. and Canada, offering accommodations including vacation rentals, boutique hotels, bed & breakfast inns, camping cabins, and dog-centric retreats.

Problem & Solutions: As Technology has evolved over the past  20 years, the PetFriendlyTravel.com website had vastly increased its number of subscribers and paid listings, while the technology platform it was originally created on became outdated.

The site suffered from several issues:
1) Outdated look & color scheme
2) Long scrolling pages & difficult to navigate
3) Non-working features
4) A variety of repetitive manual tasks required for upkeep that could be automated with newer technology
5) Lacked the ability to manage and upload large amounts of changes quickly
6) Customers lacked ability to fully control their own listings
The new WordPress site we created features:
1) Bright & Hip Modernized style, higher resolution photos
2) Mobile friendly, condensed user friendly navigation
3) Faster page load times, SEO keyword enhanced meta-tags to boost search engine ranking + site traffic
4) Greater administrative control, automation, and mass import tool integration
5) Customers can quickly setup a new account, add property listings, purchase yearly subscriptions, add/delete photos, descriptions, all in real time.

Love Will Carry On…with Alma Blue Keepsake Jewelry!


Jewelry designer, owner, and manufacturer Nayla Mouannes approached GANZ Media after her previous web designer was unable to complete the site.

Alma Blue offers a unique selection of Memorial Jewelry designed with your memories in mind and hand crafted with love.

Each piece can hold a pinch of cremated remains, a piece of hair, crushed memorial flowers, or earth from a special site.

With a product and brand of such a sensitive nature, GANZ Media researched other competitors in this space, to strike the right balance of soothing colors, visuals, and tone. We believe the end result was a respectful and engaging e-commerce website.

In her own words, the client testimonial says it all:

“I can’t tell you how pleased I am with GANZ Media for their terrific work on my website. Aaron is a true artist who really understood what I was striving to achieve for my site as he was able to fully capture the essence of my company and work his magic. The process was seamless and straightforward and Aaron was a joy to work with. I highly recommend GANZ Media for your web services! Don’t take my word for it – visit almablue.net for keepsake jewelry.”

New Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Santa Monica Dazzles with new moves!


Fellow Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce member David Woodbury found himself in a predicament.  Owner of the successful Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Santa Monica, his web designer of many years unexpectedly dropped out of contact for several months.

Arthur Murray Dance Studio then contacted GANZ Media to redesigned their website in WordPress to showcase their large staff, more than 9 distinct dance styles they teach, and FREE Parking! Key site features include: SEO Keyword Template, News/Blog section, Instagram Gallery, Events Calendar, Email Newsletter Sign-up.  The Arthur Murray franchise has over 260 dance studios in 22 countries.

Please check out their great review they left for us on Yelp:

“Arthur Murray Dance Center of Santa Monica has been the premier Ballroom Dance Center on the West Side of Los Angeles for over five years! Joel Rieck and David Woodbury are the co-owners and we have FREE PARKING!

We recently lost our web developer and we were desperate for a new web site. We knew Aaron Ganz of GANZ Media from the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce and from Aaron’s participation in their Young Professionals Committee. Our first call for help went to Aaron. He listened to our request for help and he knew that we needed help quickly.

Aaron helped us step-by-step to plan our new site. Within just a few weeks we had an awesome new site that works well with all platforms including both mobile and desktop. We had many, many questions and emails and calls and Aaron patiently and professionally helped and guided us.

The result is a beautiful new site, DancingSantaMonica.com. This has improved our exposure, increased our new inquiries, and this now helps us give better service to our new and advanced students. Our students use our web site regularly for our daily group and party calendar and our links to Social Media and our News Letter.

We enjoy the ease of using WordPress, Google Analytics, the SEO Keyword Research that was performed, all of our new stock photos, YouTube and Instagram Videos, plus the transfer of our pre-existing Blog Newsletter library.

Working with Aaron and Ganz Media was a pleasure, and this has increased our bottom line and we are proud of the work Aaron did for us. We are happy to give this great testimonial of Aaron’s work, and will continue to refer him through the Santa Monica Chamber and all our Arthur Murray Dance family!”

About The Wunderglo Foundation

The WunderGlo Foundation has three distinct functions, all geared toward snuffing out colon cancer and helping patients and their families take back their power over the disease:

SUPPORTING CUTTING EDGE RESEARCH AND TREATMENTS The WunderGlo Foundation will make several grants throughout the year to National Cancer Institutes and non-profit organizations that help us move closer to a cure every day. To raise the funds necessary to make these grants, The WunderGlo Foundation will host several fundraising events throughout the year, from an annual gala to poker, golf, and basketball tournaments.

PROMOTING HEALTHY LIFESTYLE CHOICES Through programming and information found on the Foundation’s website, The WunderGlo Foundation strives to inspire people to eat right, exercise, sleep well, stay positive, and honor their bodies by taking good care of them. This applies equally to those who are battling cancer and those who are not fighting the disease. At both fundraising events and on the website, The WunderGlo Foundation provides a blueprint for how to live healthily and happily.

CONNECTION WITH CANCER WARRIORS AND THEIR SUPPORT NETWORKS The WunderGlo Foundation aims to be a distinctly personal organization. Any and every patient with questions, concerns, or in need of support is encouraged to read the content on the website and on Gloria’s blog and to get in touch with any of the officers of The WunderGlo Foundation.
