Based out of Boston, Massachusetts, DemoFlick came to us when their website was not reflecting the high quality explainer videos they were producing.

3) Allow them to update their portfolio easily.
By placing quick contact forms throughout the site along with call to action buttons we’re confident DemoFlick’s conversions will increase. We took our custom design and created a WordPress theme with custom post types that will allow DemoFlick to update their portfolio.

A reader recently commented on our How to Name Your WordPress Theme post asking how to hide the theme information from being seen when someone looks at your site info.
