"The solution came in several phases, the first being more of a brochure-like presentation, but it quickly had to evolve into a full blown, fully detailed e-commerce site. The real test came last fall when we sold through our entire inventory in only 60 days - most of that from online orders. We've grown considerably in our first 2 years, with considerable exposure in the press and distribution in 24 countries, the site had to mature FAST - and Seed made it happen. What little they didn't know, they picked up fast - we couldn't have done it without them. Our website is a central component of our business strategy."

Clemons Pond Association wanted to have a community site where residents of the pond could go to find information about the environmental status of the pond; neighbors addresses, phone numbers and birthdays; a picture gallery of the local scenery, residents and events; a guestbook, local business directories with emergency information, shopping and things to do. A weather status plug-in was also requested.
Owner Bill Newberry says, "Kicking and screaming, we finally made it into the 21st century!" Having a web presence was an important and missing piece of their marketing strategy. "Show them what we do, what we have to offer and where we are is a good place to start." The staff quickly embraced the idea and started collecting images, data and a plan for putting it all together. In less than 4 weeks, we photographed and cataloged over 150 of their most popular plants and organized them into a nice digital catalog. Adding a downloadable coupon and plant care tips were icing on the cake.
While having breakfast one morning at the Stairway Cafe, my wife asked, "Hey, do you guys have a website?" Well, one thing lead to another and before we knew it, Catherine was on-board and we were creating her site. The basic challenge was to convey the spirit of the restaurant, its use of foods fresh from the market and from local vendors. On top of that, make it reflect the atmosphere in the cafe using the colors and elements from the menu. We are both pretty pleased with the way it turned out, and the food IS fantastic!
Over the last year, Trinity Graphic has made some significant changes to their business operations and product mix. Robert Smithson, Owner, needed to update their existing website to reflect their new business model and branding. The content was simplified and organized in a way to both inform potential clients of Trinity's capabilities and experience, and engage them to contact Trinity for more information.
The website is now an integral marketing tool for Trinity Graphic to use as they move into the next phase of their growth.
Denise Caposella knew she was paying too much for her website and she wasn't sure how many people were actually using it and finding what they needed. I looked at the site and in 10 minutes was convinced that they could realize a significant annual savings the first year. After analyzing what people were viewing on-line, we structured the new site around providing useful information for patients and less on fancy flash and interactive elements. The new site was completed in approximately 6 weeks.
"The Intermarket Group recently launched its newly developed website with the help and guidance of "SEED Internet Solutions" and we couldn't be happier! The Intermarket Group's website became a reality with Bill's creativity, initiative, and expertise. Bill deciphered the information we provided and developed the content, look, and feel of the website. He designed countless alternate options until we found the one that best reflected our company's goal. We have received many compliments on the website's clean, professional look, how easy it is to navigate, and how clearly and concisely it provides information. Bill was always available for phone conferences and patient with our many requests for changes and updates. We are looking forward to working with Bill once again as we add more interactive components when we launch Phase 2 within the next couple of months. The Intermarket Group recommends Bill Stansky completely… we couldn't have done it without "SEED Internet Solutions"!"

A difficult subject to transform into an eloquent image for Pamela Low Counseling. Using some imagery from her office, her work and location in New England, we came up with a comfortable color scheme and layout to communicate her services, professional articles and background. Needless to say, Pam is very happy with the site: "Billy it is BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you so much. I am so amazed. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou."
"Bill is the best in capturing the essence of a business. His genuine concern for his clients is reflected in his prompt response, gathering necessary information, & efficiently producing a web-site designed to suit the needs of the business & web site visitors. Bill's financial consideration toward my small business allowed me to go forward from a thought to web-site. As a result of Bill's knowledge, organization, & artistic flair, my web-site was put together before I could blink. It was also great fun to work him, especially not being computer savvy. Thank you Bill for a great web-site experience."

Working with Barbara Bloomgren and her husband Chip, I quickly understood the passion and determination they had for bringing their dream to live on the internet. Several challenges were presented that we stepped back and organized, then re-organized and settled upon the best solution for developing the website. The usual items of what and where the school was located were easy. Capturing the excitement, the flavor and fun of cooking was the real challenge. With the help of local photographer, Tina Gammon, we captured the warmth and essence of the cooking class, the interaction between Barbara and the students and wonderful list of classes and recipes that were offered. "We are so pleased with the result with our website. We are delighted that we can manage both our schedule and recipe blog on our own."

The local group, Team Tampa Bay for our Market America business needed to revive their website with a fresh look and also have it compatible with tables and smart phones. Using the responsive template to create the look, we made it a great resource for all MA distibutors in the SW Florida region who need to know what is going on in our area. Rick Howroyd, local coordinator is quite thrilled to have the site back up and running!
"I want to thank you for your work on our website. You truly made the process seamless from conception to completion. The finished product was better than I had hoped, and response has been terrific. Your ability to extract my vision from the many bits and pieces I forwarded you was awesome! In hind sight, I question why I ever considered trying to build the site myself."

Tom Ring, Captain of the Atlantic Seal was frustrated with his printer for advertising materials and knew he needed to find a way to attract seasonal customers in the Freeport, Maine area. Working on a minimum budget, I created a single page site that focused on tours and the narration of one, knowledgeable captain of the Atlantic Seal. Keeping it simple and providing the visitor the basics of who, what, where and when, Tom is delighted with the result.
"Simply put, I know everything about Casco Bay and the waterfront sites in the area, but I haven't don't know anything about websites and the internet, except that I need to be a part of it. Fortunately, I met Bill on a tour and he worked to deliver a wonderful website that I could afford."
