A Tip for Business Owners

About a year ago a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to join her at a mixer for this business group she belonged to. Since I had been looking for new ways to grow my business, I basically jumped at the chance to network and meet some new people.

I was floored by the prospects that were made available to me almost the instant I walked through the door. The first gentleman I met ended up hiring our company for his website and met 2 others that currently have contracts pending. I wasn't even a member at that point, just a guest trying to figure out what the group was all about. That was just a beginning and needless to say I ended up joining the group a few weeks later. Our business has exploded and to this day we continue to get fresh leads almost every week. The group I'm talking about is LeTip of Red Rock which is a chapter of LeTip International, Inc. They are the world's largest, privately owned, professional business leads organization. Since 1978, LeTip programs have helped over 50,000 members, throughout the United States and Canada, build business success through personal referrals.

As an active member in the chapter, KMJ Web Design wanted to build the chapter a website we would all be proud of. Ultimately, the website will help guests understand what we're all about and provide them with the needed information when and where to attend the next meeting/mixer. First time guests get a free breakfast and usually after seeing the huge potential of the group, they find themselves ready to join just as I did.

LeTip of Red Rock is looking to grow their chapter and they have many open positions available for prospective business owners. We invite to take a moment to review the website, learn about the chapter and contact them about how you can become a member of LeTip of Red Rock!

Craig Road Animal Hospital

As you all probably know by now, we have come to rely on our blog for announcing all the new projects released by KMJ Web Design. And every once in a while we have a little more of a story to share about a project and all the things that went into creating it. This was definitely one of those projects because it's a rare occurrence that we'll end up designing a website 3 different times. But it happened in this case because we were determined to provide a design that was embraced by not only the owner, but entire staff at Craig Road Animal Hospital.

Speaking from first hand experience, I can say they are a great bunch of people at Craig Road Animal Hospital. We had a lot of fun working with them while trying to help them define what it was they needed to accomplish with their website. From our initial meeting we came up with a game plan and delivered our first design scheme, but it really wasn't what they were looking for. So we thought long and hard and decided the best way to address their concerns was to start from scratch and develop a whole new design scheme. It was risky, but in the end we got a step closer to giving the client what they were hoping for. But it still wasn't quite right and after some discussion we decided that we could get it right where the client wanted it with some graphical changes that would save us from another rebuild. Not only were we able to improve the design and get thumbs up from the entire staff at Craig Road Animal Hospital
, but we did so without needing to spend costly additional time on the project.

Although, it's true from time to time that a project will turn out to be a little more complicated than originally anticipated, but that comes with the territory. In the end we, at
KMJ Web Design, only care about making our clients happy and meeting every step of our clients expectations.

We invite all of you to please take a moment to visit this exciting new website and if any of your four-legged family members need an excellent veterinarian, we highly recommend the talented and friendly Doctors at Craig Road Animal Hospital.
