Just launched a new site for Stefan Audioart. They create high-end custom cables for headphones. We used Woocommerce, which is great for creating E-commerce shopping cart sites.

Resolve to make this a MOLO year for your business. What is MOLO?  Beyond being our contribution to the societal ill known as acronymitis, MOLO is a strategy to harness the power of the mobile phone to drive customers to your local business.

More people will access the Internet via mobile devices than with their home or office PCs in 2014.   This presents some great opportunities for local businesses but some challenges must also be addressed if you are to convert these on-the-go customers.

Mobile prospects are dealing with smaller screens, smaller bandwidth capabilities and, in most cases, smaller decision-making windows.  They need locally-driven content optimized for the mobile platform. But you know all this – how many times have you used your phone to search for a product or service?  

Making sure you win your share of customers in the mobile arena will take some effort and focus. Luckily for you, we at Walden Pond Design have made Mobile a priority for local businesses for the last few years. In fact, we were one of the first CT shoreline companies to develop a mobile website. We’ve developed them for local businesses like Bar Bouchee, Madison Art Cinemas, Wilcox Energy, Union League Café and Thimble Island Cruises. We’d be happy to develop one for you.

So stay tuned. And stay on course to make MOLO marketing a key to your success in 2014.

Almost every member of the Walden Pond Design team has a rescue pet. Thus we jumped at the chance to create a new site for Starelief of Stamford.

STARelief is a group of volunteers dedicated to keeping pets and families together during hard financial times. They do this by providing life-saving pet food, supplies, and veterinary care to families in need. Their goal is to reduce the number of pets that are left behind or surrendered to local animal shelters, and to work toward a future where decisions about providing food or medical care for pets are never made on the basis of cost.

We deeply discounted our rate and worked extra hours. Please view their site to learn more about the great work they do: http://Starelief.org

You might have noticed a strip of photos in a black box when searching for local hotels, restaurants or  bars, it’s Google’s Carousel. It first appeared on tablets last year and was tested on desktops during the spring. Last summer Google started rolling it out to all U.S. users.

Instead of the traditional vertical listings, there is now a horizontal “carousel” which displays thumbnails, ratings, as well as the number of Google+ reviews. It’s called a carousel because you can slide it to see even more listings.

We were pleased to see one of our sites listed #1 in the carousel. 
We recently launched a new website as well as a mobile site for TheMadGourmet.com. They offer delicious food and catering services from their Guilford location. Before we worked on their site they were practically invisible to Google. They appeared on the fourth page results for “catering Guilford CT“. We created a new site using WordPress and fully optimized the site for local search.

Now they rank #1 on the carousel, rank #3 in the regular search results.
