For an online business like All Things Madison, a really solid website is equivalent to a local business’s storefront. Both require eye-catching entrances/landing pages, predictability, unique aesthetics, recognizable branding, and a seamless flow to explore all that it has to offer.
It took nearly two years of operating All Things Madison to better determine how I wanted allthingsmadison.com to serve and function, but finding the right website developer felt like a needle in a haystack. I was looking for developers who could create a vision for the site that was bigger than I could dream up for myself.
1.) would want to listen to and understand All Things Madison as a whole
2.) had a thick portfolio of previous work
3.) were overall skilled in HTML and custom design from the ground up
4.) were somewhat affordable considering the custom nature of the project I desired
Late last fall, one of my connections through my Women In Tech group at UAH connected me with Roni Noueihed, a partner with Meister, which is a digital marketing, design, and branding agency here in North Alabama.
After a handful of zoom meetings and an in-person meeting, I signed a contract, paid my invoice, and a brand new allthingsmadison.com was underway!
After a couple of design meetings that I consider a “brain dump”, the Meister team got to work. Within three weeks I had a 90% complete new website draft to look over, and seeing it for the first time felt like a big reveal on an HGTV show! I could never have fathomed the type of design they’d come up with!
We then set a date to make the big transition from the old website to the new website, which was back in mid-April. Throughout the last four months the Meister team and I have worked on tweaking every detail.
I hope you find our new website easy to navigate and resourceful above all else!
