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.
Along with property listings, pet friendly hotel chains, the site also includes: dog-friendly beaches and swim areas, campgrounds and RV parks, airport pet relief areas, dog parks, pet-friendly activities and attractions, pet travel products, pet policies for national and state parks, and everything you need to know about traveling with your dog, cat, or other pet.
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its number of subscribers and paid listings, while the technology platform it was originally created on became outdated.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1) Outdated look & color scheme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.”

GANZ Media is working with our new client The Wunderglo Foundation! Please help support Colon Cancer Awareness month and add this Twibbon graphic we created to your Facebook or Twitter profile: https://twibbon.com/support/cancer-awareness-wunderglo#

 

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.

Web Design Mania sweeps the Nation! People take notice of GANZ Media.

Great planning & Email Campaigns = Success!!

A well conceived email campaign can make the difference between successful Online Marketing ROI, and a  sinking ship. In our recent email campaign touting Web Design services, a well crafted subject line once again brings in significant viewers.

You can have the best email content in the world, with snazzy graphics, clever messaging, and the most amazing discounts, but you campaign can fail because your  subject line came across as spammy or insincere. Click here to see the email.

GANZ Media Website Design Email Campaign!

GANZ Media Website Design Email Campaign!

One method for increasing readership of your emails is called an A/B split test. In this case we test only 10  percent of our total list of email subscribers before the main campaign is launched. This small sample size  was split in half using two subject lines with “Website Design Projects & March Madness!”  (which had an  12.5% open rate) against  “March Madness! Website Design & Online Marketing” (which had an 8 % open  rate).

Web Design Email Campaign Results

We setup our email software to wait for one day to track results between these two groups, allowing for  maximum feedback from our viewers. The winner of these two (the one with the higher open rate), was  used to send out to the remaining 90% of our email list.

5 Helpful Email tips:

Every email campaign should contain the following –

1) A well crafted subject line (tested for effectiveness).

2) A call to action: direct your viewers to perform an action (i.e. View your website, open a video, call you  for a free demonstration, email to receive a 10 % savings on your next purchase).

3) Make sure the email is not too text heavy, inserting plenty of images/graphics/YouTube videos where  needed.

4) Clearly display your Social Media icons and prompt people to follow you. Ask for the Sale!

5) Contact information: too often email campaigns don’t give clear contact info. Make sure to include a  phone number, email address, and website.

Happy Campaigning!
