Total Physical Therapy website launches & coincides with final launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis

 

These two events may very well be tied in some strange astronomical way. Otherwise, how can one explain the final launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis on July 8th, 2011, so perfectly coinciding with the launch of the newly redesigned Total Physical Therapy website? Well, you can’t… it’s bigger than all of us! :)

Total Physical Therapy (TPT) has been a client for many years and their site needed a facelift. We leveraged the WordPress platform to allow TPT to easily manage Testimonials and Newsletters, as well as easily add YouTube videos directly from TPT’s own channel. Being able to manage your own website in this manner allows for a more dynamic and compelling website that draws interest and clients. TPT can now communicate more effectively with new and existing clients to provide more value added benefits, leveraging Social Media like never before.

This is what we do! We build and design websites to help businesses grow. Our clients remain with us for many years, because they see the benefit of their websites and the solutions we build, and you can too. If your website is in need of a facelift, to rejuvenate your online efforts, or perhaps begin your online sales growth strategy, call us today.

LeafGuard’s Squirrel Baseball Game – thinking out of the box

If you’ve ever had clogged gutters, you probably know who LeafGuard is. Englert wanted something their dealers could leave behind, along side the traditional brochure and business card, and something unique in the industry. That’s how the LeafGuard Squirrel Baseball flash game was born!

Go play LeafGuard’s Squirrel Baseball (http://www.leafguard.com/squirrelbaseball/)

Most good projects are a collaboration of many talented individuals and this is no different. Half a dozen people were involved in the creative and development process and all were integral to the finished game. From a technical standpoint, Olivia Scheibe did the animations, Juan Cortez did the flash ActionScript work and sound, Guillermo Del Pino made the outside bezel & CD graphics, and Pablo Villalon made an auto-start CD and ISO for duplication.

The game has been so well received, we’re working on the second! Stay tuned…

LeafGuard is the original and only one-piece gutter system, with a built-in hood that covers the gutter bottom and deflects leaves and other debris. The hood is not an add-on, but an integral part of the gutter itself. LeafGuard is owned by Englert, whose headquarter’s are in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. LeafGuard has dealers all across the country and has even earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping seal.

Contact us if you have an idea, or need ideas, to help your business stand out and get ahead. Special thanks go out to Olivia Scheibe, who’s work can be found at Animator Who Draw’s , and her YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/OliviaScheibe

The new Genesys Advisors website has launched!

Genesys Advisors Business Coaching

Genesys Advisors is a team of business coaches with significant business acumen. Their services includes Business Coaching, Consulting and Business Services in New Jersey, all designed to help owners succeed in their respective businesses. We designed the original website in 2005 and by today’s standards, it was looking a little dated. Back then, we were designing sites for 800×600 screens and today those sites look a little small, so when Kathleen Nitti, one of the partners and managing members, approached us to freshen up the site and bring it up-to-date, we were glad to help.

The new website is much wider, easier to read, offers business tips, and even allows for Event Registrations. Your business may benefit greatly from the help of one or more of the Genesys Advisors coaching team. I strongly recommend their firm and with their free 30 minute consultation, there’s not much to lose!
