Looking for a personal assistant in San Diego? Be sure to contact Lisa Hamel, the lady that “turns your to do’s into ta da’s. She specializes in helping small businesses in San Diego save time and money by outsourcing their needs.

This web client had all her content, images, and logo ready for me, what a dream! All I had to do was get her a wordpress platform ready and teach her how to blog. This was a special client that wanted to be a part of the design process, so she basically designed the website herself.

This project specialized in having multiple “calls to action” on every page:

(see the prominent orange buttons?)

Also a contact form on the bottom of every page:

We also made sure the website was fully responsive. (adjusts to every mobile device)

The next task is to rank the site for targeted keywords such as “San Diego personal assistant services” and “virtual assistant in San Diego

This is a new SEO project and it takes nearly three months for me to get a page 1 listing in Google for targeted long tail keywords. Please check back on my progress!

Avalon Hospice San Diego

Working with web site clients is a rewarding experience. I get to learn all about their business and strategize ways to improve their website’s SEO and usability. Today I’d like to share a case study regarding a well respected hospice in San Diego called Avalon Hospice & Palliative Care.

The primary needs for this website was to create strong “calls to action” for both “referring a patient to hospice care” and for people to “become a hospice volunteer in San Diego.

I added a couple of nice buttons on the side navigation. Purple and blue.

Creating attractive call to action buttons on your website

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next important task was to make all the online forms digital. They were previously in .PDFs and the call to action was for the user to fax the forms. This is considered outdated and time consuming for a patient.

This was converted into a nice clean form the user can either refer a patient to hospice care or volunteer as a hospice care taker in San Diego.

Best of all, the form sends the staff a text message alerting them about a new patient referral or volunteer.

This was not a website redesign project. I’m just sharing a couple of web design improvements for a better user experience.

Thanks for reading.
