AlmaNow.com Website Overhaul

Posted by | Blog, Web Work | No Comments

Initially I was contacted by Tommy Ganz to create a Flash banner for his web site AlmaNow.com (American Landscape Maintenance Association). He had seen something similar on another site I did and asked if I could change it to meet his needs. I did so free of charge. It was a project that interested me and I knew I could do it in a few hours so I agreed. Tommy loved the banner so much that a few months later, he asked my to do a website overhaul on his current site and add a Vbulletin forum. I created multiple wireframes and comps and once a design was chosen, I created a WordPress theme (the iste was already running WordPress) and a matching vBulletin theme. Total implementation time for the website overhaul and forum installation was about a month with all the revamps and SEO setup. I also set Tommy up on Google Analytics so he could see which of his products and pages were bringing in the most attention. The ALMA site brought in over 2000 members before Tommy shut it down because of a conflict of interest with a new company he joined.
