We have some exciting news: on February 29th, 4Web joined the Paragon Digital Marketing team! We’ve been working closely with Paragon for quite some time. If you’ve ever inquired about digital marketing services in the past, there’s a good chance you’ve heard us mention their name.
Stacey Nachajski is the owner of Great Brook Media, and has a background in Public Relations and Advertising—but she has followed her true love—Branding and Social Media. She created Great Brook Media because she found that many small business owners were struggling to bring their businesses online. She loves working with them, discovering what makes them special, and getting them pumped up about their business!
4Web recently launched a website for Massachusetts Working on Wellness, a new statewide initiative to help Massachusetts employers develop and implement health-related policies and procedures for their employees. There are two faces to the site:
- the publicly-accessible face that describes the program, accepts applications for entry into the program, and provides a myriad of health-related resources to the general public, and
- an integrated LMS (Learning Management System) for registered program participants.
Bob Allison is a personal injury attorney with over 25 years experience helping people with personal injury claims. He wasn’t satisfied with the traffic or inquiries being generated by his previous website and knew he needed professional assistance. Not only did he need a website that would yield better initial contacts from injury victims, but he needed WordPress web developers willing to take the time to understand his needs. As always it was important that we find ways to keep costs down for Bob while we improved his website.
Today an important security release will become available for Joomla 3. If you have a Joomla 3 website it is important to ensure this patch gets applied as soon as possible. BEFORE applying any update, 4Web recommends backing up your website, validating that your backup worked correctly, and storing that backup off the server where your website is hosted. Actually we recommend you do this on a regular basis depending on how often you update your website.
We’re very excited to launch American Precision’s new Responsive website. In 2011 they came to us with an outdated Joomla 1.5 site. They were looking for help organizing their site and updating the “look and feel”. At that time we upgraded them to Joomla 1.7 to ensure their site would be ready for Joomla 2.5 upgrade down the road. Just last week we launched their upgraded Joomla 3 website and it’s fully responsive! They’re very happy with the new functionality of their responsive website, and comfortable knowing their site is ready for mobile viewers. After all, 80% of internet users own a smart phone and you can be sure they’re searching websites using their devices.
If your website still needs to be Mobile-Friendly, don’t hesitate to give us a shout, we would be happy to help.
We had just about finished unpacking at our Summer Street office when the phone rang; it was Zach Luse from Paragon Digital. He had just entered into a new partnership with the Hannah Grimes Entrepreneur Center–named the ‘New England Web and Tech Collaborative‘ (NEWT)–and asked if we wanted to be a part of it.
Let’s see: A chance to co-work with the great people at Paragon Digital and other professionals providing services for the Web, and working in a newly-renovated section of the Hannah Grimes building
We are heading to WordCamp Boston on July 18, 2015 at Boston University and we can’t wait! Meet, share and learn are our goals when attending any event. It’s great to connect with WordPress developers and designers to learn new information or just something we didn’t know. 4Web is also an event sponsor. There is a LOT that goes into putting on one of these events. So it’s important to give to the greater good of all open source projects, however you can (attend, time, money, support). We hope to see you @!
