Balanced Care for Women WordPress Website Redesign

Posted on April 25, 2016

WordPress website Balanced Care for Women

Balanced Care for Women is a team of three OBGYN specialist in St. Louis, MO made up of Laura A. Baalmann, M.D., Holly Hiroko Kodner, M.D. and Donna N. Senciboy, D.O., M.H.A. Their offices are located right off of I-270 on Olive Boulevard.

Balanced Care for Women came to Visual Lure when they wanted to redesign their existing website. Their old website was dated and non-mobile friendly which provided a bad user experience. Visual Lure’s new design was built using a fully custom, search engine optimized, responsive designed WordPress theme.

The new site now renders beautifully on all phones, tablets and desktop computers. New features include a form to schedule appointments, an e-commerce section that allows customer to pay their invoices securely online, a custom admin section to manage staff profiles and a sticky header. The sticky header keeps the logo and navigation at the top of the screen, no matter how far down you scroll, always making it easy to navigate the site. We also added elegant CSS animation effects to give the site a sense of sophistication.

New WordPress Website for St. Louis Area Car Audio Company

Posted on March 31, 2015

Xclusive Autosound originally came to Visual Lure to search engine optimize their existing website, but after a review of the site, we found that the WordPress theme they were using was part of the problem. Even though it was responsive, it was slow, scoring in the low 60’s in sections of Google Webmaster Tool’s PageSpeed Insights. Xclusive was also having problems with plugin conflicts and missing image files. Simply put, the website was not ranking well, they were tired of all the headaches it was causing them, and they just wanted it done right. To remedy all these issues we helped Xclusive Autosound design, develop and launch a new custom, fast-loading, search engine optimized, responsive WordPress website. Below you can see the new home page design and the car audio & electronics landing page. Please visit xclusiveautosound.com to view the new site.

Xclusive Autosound is a Belleville, IL custom car audio shop that specializes in the installation of car electronics, automobile, commercial & residential window tinting and automotive paint protection film. Their car electronic products include remote starters, backup camera & sensors, mobile video & DVD players, Sirius XM radios, bluetooth and all types of custom car audio equipment.

Even though St. Louis is an entire river away from Belleville, a large portion of their clients make “that arduous trip” due to Xclusive’s reputation (it is actually only 17 miles from downtown St. Louis, MO to Belleville, IL). Their reputation was built by the consistent quality of their work, never taking shortcuts with any of their installs and their eye for detail. This is important because how some of these product are installed and integrated into your automobile are sometimes more important than the products themselves.

Sneak Peek at New Website for St. Louis Metro Construction Company

Posted on February 5, 2015

Visual Lure, in collaboration with Cohesion, is currently working on Holland Construction Services’ new website. Cohesion is a St. Louis, MO based strategic consulting firm and a full-service marketing agency, and Holland Construction Services is a top St. Louis metro east commercial contractor. Holland specializes in providing full-service construction services to commercial, educational, government, industrial, multi-family, recreational and religious organizations and businesses.

The new website is being built in WordPress utilizing a fully custom theme with a plethora of custom features. These include a leadership page where member’s photos are black and white, when selected, they turn to color and move to the foreground. A custom admin section is also being created so that the Holland team can easily add, edit and remove featured projects. The new site will be responsive so that users have a pleasant viewing experience no matter what type of device they are using to view the website.

Cohesion was responsible for the messaging, copywriting and the design of most of the main pages. We then took what they delivered, modified the design so that it could be converted to a responsive layout and we designed the rest of the site staying true to the provided aesthetic.

View the sample pages below, along with our initial proposed home page design (at the very bottom), and check back soon for the official launch.

New website launched for St. Louis Metro East Auctioneering & Real Estate Company

Posted on April 28, 2014

Visual Lure recently re-designed and launched AdamsAuctions.com. Adam’s Auction and Real Estate Services, Inc. is a full-service auctioneering and real estate company located in the St. Louis Metro East, serving Illinois, Missouri and nationwide. Their auctioning categories include real estate, estates & consignments, bankruptcies & business liquidations, railroad/industrial and charity events.

Adam’s recently had their website re-designed by another company just this year, but it could not be found on search engines, it did not match their brand, and customers complained about it not being mobile and user-friendly. So Adam’s Auctions contracted Visual Lure to get it done right.  The new website (built in WordPress) is now simple to use, a responsive design that makes the site look and function great on desktop computers, tablets and smart phones, and it ties seamlessly into their very complex auctioning software making it easy for staff to maintain.

If you don’t want to have to re-design your website right after you’ve had it re-designed, then GET IT DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME by giving Visual Lure a call today.  All our websites are search engine friendly & optimized, responsive, aesthetically pleasing and quick loading for a great overall user-experience.
