Web site redesign

I am looking to re design my website. I received a proposal from Health Haven and just wondered if anyone has any knowledge of this company or any other ideas.

Mark,

I went through TST Media and they have done an amazing job. The monthly fees aren't expensive and a professional website is a must.

Check out my site.

www.crossfitfastfactory.com


(WFS)


PM and I can get your more information.

Thanks,

John

Re: Web site redesign

Hi Mark, I've also had a few e-mail's from 'Larry' from Health Haven. I'm convienced he just spams e-mails hoping to jag someone who's interested. I've received the same e-mail from him four times.

I went through Forging Elite Websites (www.forgingelitewebsites) WFS

Jason is a CrossFitter and did a great job for us even when we were being a little difficult to begin with. He also did out logo. He charges about $20/month to host which also includes updating etc.

Cheers, Andrew

Re: Web site redesign

I think you are right. I looked at the stuff they have produced and I am not impressed. I've talked with forgingelitewebsites and 123 Go. I didn't want to spend that much money but I am convinced I just need to bite the bullet. It will pay off down the road. Thanks again.

Re: Web site redesign

We recently used 3,2,1,GO Project for our webpage redesign and I cannot say enough good things about them.

We wanted some really specific capabilities and Clay and his team bent over backwards to support us. It was well worth every penny and I would recommend them to anyone.

Do you mind giving a ballpark on what it cost to set up and maintain?

Re: Web site redesign

Website isn't everything, there's a gym out here that is growing and fairly successful and they have the absolute worst domain and website design I've ever seen.

Don,

If you don't mind my asking, what were the specific capabilities were you looking for?

John,

Your website looks sweet. Color scheme and layout is great. When you update the calendar, photos, videos, etc, do you send things to them and they update it or do you use an interface they provided to upload changes?

They have built over 50 elements. So after the first day I can handled everything. Basically the build out, the design graphics and from there it is a plug and play. I built every page with absolutely zero web experience. I would be willing walk through and teach anyone how to use it. I couldn't imagine trying to use a different company after seeing how simple this site was. They will even set up all your online waivers and everything. Each day I do our WOD Blog which takes me less than 5 minutes to build the page.
