Elzinga Farm & Greenhouse

Visit Elzinga Farm & GreenhouseInformation: This new Small Web Solutions client wanted to update it’s online look and functions with a rich, colorful and device-responsive format, as well as to offer some online purchasing options. The existing site was a cookie-cutter design using GoDaddy design tools and presented an outdated, unprofessional look and format. Small Web Solutions made a number of suggestions, including the development of a user-friendly layout and navigation style that neatly presents the stunningly beautiful products this family business has to offer.

We added a new customer yesterday.  I asked them how they found out about us and they indicated they did a Google search for calibration.  When they found our website they said they were extremely impressed with the professional look and layout.  They said it was a factor in determining which calibration company they were going to interview.

They are going to be Cal Lab’s largest account!

Thank you Jackie!
