Most of the time companies go out of their way to tell you all about the HUGE projects they’ve completed. Heck, we’ve done it ourselves. But the smaller projects come and go without much fanfare. We intend to change that with a new series of posts highlighting some projects that we’ve done where they may not have been big projects, but for the client, the end result was just what they needed.
A few months back we got a call from Michael Spremulli from the Chrysalis Corporation, a service provider of pre-employment assessment solutions. The former Chrysalis Corporation website was comprised of static HTML pages that were becoming increasingly cumbersome for him to update and maintain. Although Mike was brand new to WordPress, he knew that he wanted to take his website in that direction, and that’s where 9seeds entered the picture.
Mike came to the table already armed with a vision for the new Chrysalis site. Based on his needs, we took an existing StudioPress theme on the Genesis framework – the Enterprise child theme, to be exact – and made some custom design changes to match what Mike was looking for. On top of that, we created some custom post types to allow him to easily add new assessments. To ensure Mike would be comfortable with his new WordPress back-end, we provided him with a bit of training, and walked him though all the steps he needed to update and maintain the site.
In the end, the newly-converted Chrysalis website went live and is working well for Mike. He likes the SEO-friendly aspect of his WordPress site, and is thrilled with the ease of updating content without having to contact a developer. As it turns out, he’s received a consistent string of compliments from his existing clients about the changes and is also converting leads better than his old site did. It’s definitely the kind of turnout we like to hear!
Getting kudos from clients we work with is always very much appreciated, so you can imagine how flattered we were to see this video review that Mike made about our services. It was quite a nice gesture to mark the implementation of another 9seeds project. We’re just glad that he’s happy with the end result.
Thanks for your kind words, Mike!
