This week we had the privilege of releasing a new site for Brain, Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers. In addition to having a unique, custom design, this site utilizes the WordPress blog functionality in an unusual and effective way to display web-only content from this excellent magazine. Other features include a fully-functional product store and online subscription purchase and management. The owners of the magazine are able to click a button in our interface to generate an accurate mailing list when it comes time to send out the next issue.
From the Editor, Marcelle Soviero: “At Brain, Child we strive to bring the voices of women of different backgrounds and circumstances together on the page and on our website. Through essays, fiction and feature stories our writers provide their unique perspectives on being mothers and women while addressing readers as thinking individuals, not just medicine-dispensing, food-fixing, boo-boo-kissing mommies.”
The website for Brain, Child presented new and different challenges for us, and we’re excited to help the magazine reach more and more people online.

It’s a fact: the fastest-growing group of web-searchers are folks who browse on their mobile devices: iPhones, iPads, Androids are the biggest out there, but there are many others.
The images below show the differences between a standard site and its mobile counterpart. You can test drive this yourself at www.ctconstitution.com.
A mobile site displays completely differently in a phone or tablet, removing extraneous graphics, adding a simpler navigation menu, and above all, making the text larger and easier to read.
Easier to read translates to: more people will read, and learn about your business.
What can you do as a business owner to catch the attention of these people? Be sure your website works well in a mobile format. I invite you to contact us for more info on mobilizing your site. Let’s take your website into a new era of growth!
I’m very excited to be the “web guy” for Connecticut’s newest pro sports team! The Constitution, owned by local business guy Bryan Ricci, are part of the fledgeling AUDL – American Ultimate Disc League. Consisting of eight teams nationwide, the professional Ultimate league begins its first official season in 2012.
The site for the Constitution needed to be visually “cool”, provide great images, and allow visitors to interact in many different ways – from league and team statistics that can be managed and updated by the owners to automated scheduling display to two discrete stores for ticket and merchandise purchasing – all done through WordPress add-ons within a reasonable budget
Check out the site, and be sure to catch their first home game on May 5! Visit www.ctconstitution.com.
