Rynoh’s New Look

Rynoh

It’s been a while since we posted, but that’s because we’ve been so busy! We wanted to take a few minutes and tell you about Rynoh.com, one of the new websites we launched earlier this year.

Kristen Littlewood - Rynoh

If you are in business, you need a good website. If you need a good website, you need United Networks. It is not enough for a site to just be pretty, nor is it enough for a site to just have pages of content. A good – better yet – a successful site finds the perfect balance between both to achieve results. The team at United Networks excels in finding that balance and delivering results for its clients. You will be hard-pressed to find a WordPress development company that offers the same level of service, reliability, and expertise – let alone at such affordable rates. Trust me, I’ve tried several and they do not compare! United Networks is hands down the best around and I highly recommend them whenever I can.

Rynoh gave us a lot of leeway in the design phase of the project. They wanted something clean, fast, and simple, that clearly conveyed who they are as a company and what their products and services have to offer. We took the opportunity to create some unique elements for them, such as the icons seen below that represent the different modules within their product.

 

 

 

Their new site also includes fun animation effects and a custom mobile menu. They’ve since joined our WordPress maintenance service, Barrel Roll, and we’ve continued to optimize and maintain their site. So far this year, Rynoh’s site sessions are up 19.15% and their organic traffic is up almost 40% compared to the previous period when the old version of their website was live.

RynohLive is a patented, web-based, “bridge application” that has revolutionized escrow account management practices. RynohLive integrates with the agent’s escrow accounting software and their online banking (read only) to provide the industry’s premiere escrow and financial security software solution. They offer continuous end-to-end account auditing, daily reconciliation, transaction monitoring, anti-fraud algorithms and built-in automated reporting.

Big Changes = Big Improvements for Dean Supply

Dean Supply

Way back in 2015 we received a contact form submission from Michael at Dean Supply, a restaurant supply store located in Cleveland, and we followed up. Since then we’ve been working with them regularly to improve their Shopify webstore, culminating in the launch of a brand new site a few months ago.

Michael DeSatnik - Dean Supply

Once the United Networks redesign went live, we saw an immediate increase in every category.  Site visits, time on site, page visits, conversions, and repeat orders. Every month we continue to set new records for our ecommerce business.  Plus, it’s nice to have a website where we are complimented on a daily basis.  We can not thank United Networks enough for the success we have seen and are already planning for the next phase.  Stay tuned!

Michael wrote a much longer testimonial which can be found here. Thanks for the kind words!

Michael DeSatnik Head of Ecommerce Dean Supply February 2, 2017

The new design was a big departure from their existing theme, as you can see below in the before/after graphic. It features a tighter header, more advanced mega menu, cleaner and more unified typography, and improved technical performance, among many other changes.

The benefits of the improved design became apparent almost immediately after the launch back in August. Comparing the five months after the launch with the five months before, Dean Supply saw a 41.66% increase in user sessions, a 29.23% increase in transactions with a 50% increase in unit quantity, and a 47.55% in revenue.

Those numbers are fantastic, but comparing the five months after launch to the same time in the previous year produces even more staggering figures: 125% more sessions, 183.41% increase in transactions, and a 158.24% increase in revenue.

Not all of the improvements were due to the launch of the new theme, however. Dean Supply has run some successful marketing campaigns and we’ve worked with them to implement a number of technical and design changes over the past few years, but it’s clear that the new design is working and paying huge dividends.

The Dean Supply website includes a ton of great functionality for their customers. Some examples include the option to pickup in the store, wishlists, live search, powerful product filtering, custom tabbed product descriptions, and smart product recommendations.

A New Site For The New Leaf

The New Leaf Ghent

The New Leaf Ghent

We love working with unique and passionate businesses, and The New Leaf, a flower shop in the exciting Chelsea district of Norfolk, Virginia, is exactly that.

Throughout the process of developing their site we went through numerous designs and styles of typography until we landed on just the right combination. We created dozens of custom graphics to showcase their unique arrangements and setup a review section that pops because people love The New Leaf.

Unlike many other flower shops, The New Leaf doesn’t list specific arrangements for sale on their website. That’s because they want to be sure each customer gets the freshest, most unique arrangements possible on the day of their order. To help facilitate this, we created a “How to Order” page that gives customers information on the process and a form to get in touch with the pros.

We finally have a web site that we are really proud of, and United Networks made that happen! We get tons of compliments from our customers on the site!

The new design is working. Comparing three months after launching back in May to the three months prior, The New Leaf has seen a 25% increase in website users and a 32% decrease in their bounce rate. The bounce rate on mobile dropped by almost 50% and organic search traffic is up almost 13%.

Not long after the launch of their site The New Leaf became a Barrel Roll member and has received ongoing WordPress maintenance since to keep their site running smoothly, up to date, and secure.

A Brand New Design For The Norfolk Sister City Association

Norfolk Sister City Association

Norfolk Sister City Association

Five years ago, before responsive website design was mainstream, we developed a lovely, vibrant, non-responsive website for the Norfolk Sister City Association (NSCA). As the organization has grown and technology has evolved, so have the needs of their users.

Jennifer Priest - Norfolk Sister City Association

United Networks has worked with three executive directors during their tenure as web designer for Norfolk Sister City Association. Through two website updates, training of two directors, implementation of a new membership database and general graphics support, they have displayed the highest levels of professionalism, patience and good humor. I have referred United Networks to other businesses and non-profits and will continue to do so at every opportunity.  

Jennifer Priest Executive Director Norfolk Sister City Association March 22, 2016

Today we’re excited to share with you the newly re-designed NSCA website! It’s fully responsive, has a powerful, full-width layout, and integrates their event system among others. The homepage shows views of each sister and friendship city with the word “Welcome” in their native language. It includes a powerful mobile menu that makes site navigation easy on phones. It’s performance and search engine optimized so it’s found easily and loads quickly.

In the time since the new website was launched, NSCA has seen a 57% increase in sessions. Not bad! We’re looking forward to seeing all the things the Norfolk Sister City Association will do with their new website.

The Norfolk Sister City Association is a nonprofit citizen diplomacy organization that creates and strengthens partnerships between the City of Norfolk, VA and its international partner communities. Check them out on Facebook and be sure to visit their new website at www.norfolksistercities.org!
