Client Shout Out: Golden State Gymnastics

Client Shout-Out: Golden State Gymnastics Website

By | Clients | One Comment

When Golden State Gymnastics asked us for a site refresh that was inviting, playful, and fun, we bent over backwards (get it?) to deliver.

Our Mission:

Making it easy to register for Golden State’s awesome gymnastics classes, sign up for a stellar birthday party or kick it at one of their cool camps.

Our Method:

  1. We knew the Call To Action needed center stage, so we included two dedicated “Register Now” buttons: one up top and one in the right-hand navigation bar.
  2. New photos! We sent one of our favorite photographers to the gym for some shots of the newly updated facility.
  3. Restructuring content is a project, but we put the time in so it takes no time at all for visitors to find important details (like class and team programs).
  4. Adding full-screen images and making the site mobile friendly brought it into 2017.
  5. Last but not least, we increased both mobile and desktop speed by a whopping 40 percent [insert zoom sound effect here].

Final score? We’re thinking a perfect 10. Congrats on the new site, guys!

OVER NINE MILLION DOLLARS IN LEADS, YOU CAN BE NEXT!

Over Nine Million Dollars In Leads, You Can Be Next!

By | Clients, Digital advertising | No Comments

Recently, we’ve generated more than Nine Million Dollars in leads, and a whole bunch of sales, for many of our clients. Here are just four examples of how we harnessed the power of digital marketing and advertising to do that.

Brown and Goodkin Website

1. Brown and Goodkin

Who They Are:

With over 40 years of service in Southern California, the lawyers of Brown & Goodkin work tirelessly on behalf of postal workers, secret service agents and other federal employees in their time of need.

What We Did:

By creating a new, responsive website and optimizing the firm’s existing Google advertising campaigns, we were able to streamline their messaging and generate an increase of leads across the country. Our strategic approach to the campaign has also led to greater efficiency in terms of geographic targeting.

Cousins Maine Lobster Facebook Ads

2. Cousins Maine Lobster

Who They Are:

After appearing on ABC’s Shark Tank in 2012, Sabin Lomac and Jim Tselikis became over-night foodie sensations. Their company’s unique take on fresh seafood and classic Northeastern casual cuisine has evolved their business from simply a great idea to a national fleet of high-end trucks, a brick and mortar location in West Hollywood, and a growing online business.

What We Did:

We created CML’s first ever online advertising campaign which netted 148 sales in the initial phase of operation. The program was multi-platform and included numerous messaging and creative tests that promoted, and increased sales both online and offline.

VEDC print media

3. VEDC

Who They Are:

Formerly known as the Valley Economic Development Center, this storied non-profit helps small businesses across the nation, many of them helmed by women or minorities, connected with lenders interested in helping them grow.

What We Did:

With custom creative, interactive ads and landing pages, we generated hundreds of small-business loan leads in five target markets across the United States. Total value of these loan applications exceeded $9M, greatly beating the client’s goals. Even more importantly, seven figures of completed loan deals helped emerging businesses succeed and grow.

Culinary Classroom Facebook Ads

4. Culinary Classroom

Who They Are:

Chef Eric Jacques Crowley is a renowned master chef whose Culinary Classroom has shaped the careers of many professional chefs – while also sharing cooking classes with enlightened amateurs.

What We Did:

Within just two weeks, we whipped up and served a selection of ads that sold out Chef Eric’s multi-week cooking and baking courses in West Los Angeles. Our ads focused on the ideal prospect for each course, ranging in cost from $1,500-$2,700, and featured a variety of marketing messages and imagery.

Your business could be next.

Casoro Jewelry Safes website

It’s Safe to Say: Casoro’s New Site is Stunning

By | Clients | No Comments

Casoro Jewelry Safes has been a leader in luxury safes for years – and we’re pleased to announce that their new website reflects that more than ever!

Our goal was to establish that Casoro’s high-end jewelry safes are the ideal addition to an opulent lifestyle, and our first priority with this project was showcasing their superior product. We accomplished this by adding a photo gallery exhibiting their wide variety of custom safe options, complete with specifications and dimensions.

Casoro Jewelry Safe - Gemstone Collection

Each product page includes a Design-A-Safe form that allows visitors to craft their perfect product, from the exterior color to the number of drawers, and to establish contact with Casoro by requesting a quote.

We maintained a visual focus with elegant slider images on every page, and included a section dedicated to their White Glove Service, which a recent study affirmed was a leading reason customers chose Casoro.

Griffin Black Website

Client Shout-Out: Griffin Black Website

By | Clients | No Comments

Counterintuity is pleased to present Griffin Black’s awesome new website!

We’ve launched a lot of websites over the years, but every project is unique. What made this one special?

“The client was extremely cooperative, responsive, and provided great input for our team to work from,” says Andrew, the project manager. Because our ultimate goal is to create a product that both represents and impresses our client, their feedback is invaluable throughout every stage of development.

Andrew cites the dynamic homepage slider as a project highlight, noting that each of the images “targets a demographic with a corresponding service.” He’s also a fan of the Meet the Team page.

Here’s a breakdown of what we did for Griffin Black:

  • Held a strategy session. An important step in any project, this gives us a chance to understand our client’s expectations, establish a baseline for marketing and explore key differentiators.
  • Identified target demographic and determined positioning. Who you’re marketing to is just as important as how you’re marketing.
  • Optimized the site for search. Go ahead, Google it – we bet it’ll be your first result!
  • Trained the client on updating and maintaining their new site. That way they’ll know how to keep it looking (and working) its best, with or without us.

And what can we do for you? Don’t hesitate to let us know!

La Mirada Theatre website

Launching La Mirada

By | Clients | No Comments

Calling all theatre (or web design) buffs: our client La Mirada Theatre officially has a shiny new website!

Our digital marketing manager, Brian Tucker, played a key role in this website launch; conducting WordPress training with our designer, acting as the project manager, and leading his first intake meeting with La Mirada’s theatre staff.

Launching La Mirada“Building a theatre website is very challenging because of the code complexities involved and features that need to be present in the website for functionality,” Brian says. He credits our designer, Jin Lee, with seamlessly surmounting those difficulties to create a beautiful finished product. “As a project manager, working with our designer, Jin was a blessing.”

Brian embraced the challenge of communicating intricate issues to the client and enjoyed seeing La Mirada’s Theatre Operations Specialist, Jane Lynch, upload new content to the website.

What do you think of the site? We’d love to hear from you!
