Launched: Quilt Possible!

For the past several months, we have consulted with one of the quilting world’s most brilliant and expert die-cutting enthusiasts, Ebony Love of Love Bug Studios.  Ebony has created and maintains several websites, including Love Bug Studios, Quilt Possible!, and Blocks to Die For, her subscription-based online magazine.  Ebony contacted us after hearing about our work on ReannaLily Designs needing some assistance as she published a new version of her Quilt Possible! website, complete with an integrated online store.

Ebony wanted to maintain her very active role in creating her own website, but with a consultant on-call for when she faced the tougher problems of customizing the theme and the functionality of the shopping cart.  Ebony ended up with a very customized website on which she sells quilting notions, pre-cut die-cuts, and quilting patterns, and we enjoyed working with her immensely.

Launched: Helena Hometown Pharmacy

We are super proud of our newest client, Blane McPeake, Owner and Manager of the Helena Hometown Pharmacy.  Just days after the official launch of the pharmacy website, Blane had used our photo tutorials to teach himself how to add news articles to his website.  The Helena Hometown Pharmacy website showcases what we can do with an Entrepreneur Website package.  The pharmacy requested a custom designed header, a custom background, and a special social connector called Twitterfeed.  Twitterfeed takes every new article Blane posts to the website and automatically publishes it to his Twitter feed and Facebook page.  Now how’s that for streamlining the social media process?

Launched: Bayou Prof

Starting a busy week of brand new websites, The Bayou Prof gator crawled out of the swamp and on to the world wide web selling Diva Sleeves and her very own book.  Representing Beth C. Whittington, Author and Diva & Dude Sleeve Dealer, the Bayou Prof lives at an e-commerce website where you can design your own Diva or Dude Sleeve.  This online storefront showcases the way you can sell customizable products.  Now if you haven’t heard of Diva Sleeves, they are custom-designed gun holsters made especially for the ladies who like bling.  When ordering a Diva or Dude Sleeve, customers start by selecting the size–small, medium, or large.  Then they can browse the photo collections of each category before making their selections of bling, leather, and trim.

Orders are processed at the website, while the payments run through PayPal.  Some of the special features of this project include a custom-designed illustration and logo by Yours Truly, a JQuery Lightbox to display the photo collections, and a slideshow of featured products on the homepage.

If you have custom products you would like to sell, contact us today to get started designing your own online storefront!

Our Referral Program

We ♥ referrals! Most of our new clients come from people we know.  That’s why we created the Main Street Referral Program.  Our clients can essentially earn commission from their referrals.

The program is very simple: for every new client you refer that purchases a new website from Main Street Web Development, you get ONE FREE MONTH of website hosting and support.  That means every referral you send us earns you a service valued at $29.95.

Do you know several people who need a new website?  Tell them about Main Street Web Development, and save yourself that monthly cost!

The Main Street Referral Program is our way of saying thank you to our loyal clients who recommend us to others.  We couldn’t do this without you, and we want to show you that you are appreciated here in Helena, Alabama.

Launched: Studio One Altus

As an entrepreneurial icon in Southwest Oklahoma, Gabrielle Barnett tired of working with her free do-it-yourself website she was using from her hosting company.  After hiring Main Street Studio to build a website for her real estate group, The Barnett Group, Gabrielle decided it was more than worth the cost to purchase a website for her dance studio.

Studio One Altus now has a first-class website that provides up-to-the-minute news, scheduling and event information, and even allows students to pay online.  The online payment system offers the opportunity for her to spend less time tracking down payments and more time on the dance floor.

Did you know you can use PayPal to accept recurring payments?  With just a simple button generated from your PayPal account, your customers can subscribe to a recurring payment each month, saving you the administrative work of invoicing, and them the hassle of writing a check.  There is no setup fee from PayPal; they simply deduct a small fee from each payment, which is much more affordable than obtaining a merchant account to accept credit card payments.
