Project Management, Site Launches, Small Business Goes Live

As 2012 comes to a close we were able to push one more project live,

Your Cash Link hired us to come up with a fun, user-friendly site that would allow users of their site to earn money by filling out surveys and completing offers.

Along with designing the site we also developed their entire user management system. This allowed Your Cash Link to manage offers, users, and payouts. It also allowed their users to keep track of what they were earning and get paid!

Are you looking for help with your website? Feel free to contact us to discuss your project.

The Field House Website goes live

As February came to a close we were able to wrap up months of hard work and put the new website for the Field House of Shelburne, Vermont live.

The Field House was referred to us by the great staff at Shelburne Health and Fitness after we re-did their site a few months back.

The Field House staff had inherited a site when they bought the business that wasn’t easy for them to update, wasn’t easy for the user to navigate, and lacked an easy way to accept payments from its customers. When we began the journey of developing the site they stressed that these three pieces were the most crucial to any new website.Read more

Five Ways to Keep Your Website Growing in 2011

With the New Year already underway, we thought we’d give you some advice about how to keep adding content to your site throughout 2011.

Add/Expand Your Press Room

Granted, not every company needs a press room, but if you find yourself getting inquiries from the press, or you’re eager to get more exposure in the media, a press room is a great place to add the kind of content that journalists feed on. A few ideas for content in pressrooms include:

  • Press releases that incorporate video – whether it’s to announce a new product, new location, product demonstrations, or even executive announcements, video content is perfect for a press room.
  • Podcasts that set you apart as a subject matter expert. Broadcast your industry knowledge on a regular schedule, and have it produced so that holds some branding value as well.
  • Background information and executive bios that will help journalists write stories with the most accurate information.

Why We Choose Basecamp Software to Manage Client Projects

If you’ve ever worked with an advertising agency or freelance design professional, you know the difficulty that cam come with project schedule coordination and overall communication. Miscommunication, misunderstanding and missed deadlines can all lead to a pretty unhealthy client/agency relationship.

Sure, you can create your own calendars or hire a project manager to coordinate schedules and send out emails, but in the end that person is still a ‘middle-man’ and is just as prone to mistakes as anyone else.

At Cat on the Couch Productions, we maximize communication and productivity while minimizing misunderstandings by using Basecamp. In fact, Basecamp’s amazing software is one the reasons we’re able to service clients in various locations and still manage all our projects effectively.Read more
