Let Us Give Your Site a Nip & Tuck!

We are advocates for change–change in color, font, and often times, design. We like anybody, understands to stay competitive, you have to be a forward thinker.  Especially with technology changing and evolving so quickly. To get the best response from your clients, you need to stay up-to-date with the latest trends. We have been working with the wonderful people at Sport Court for several years now, and have worked one on one with their individual dealers across the United States as well.

They came to us with a new request: help them update their dealer site template, so they can apply it across the dealers.

NEW SITE:

We worked along side the EKR Agency to get the visuals the way Sport Court wanted. We just loved what they wanted to capture–clean, straight forward, way less text (everyone loves more pictures, and less text on a site!) all while using the SquareHook tool to build it out-AND to keep the individual dealers in mind! Sport Court West was the dealer who was ready to make the change, and change they did!

OLD SITE:

Using the Drag and Drop Editor, we were able to add in the beautiful visuals, along with the content, so dealers can easily customize their site so it is specific to them!  Obviously, west coast sport dealers sell more putting greens, while the east coast definitely has the market for roller sports/ice hockey.  We needed the template to be universal enough that the site was uniform, but with the customization function for each dealer to showcase sport court flooring they designed and installed.

We can go in and train each dealer how to customize their site with new content, bios, and images to make sure their site is special to them, all while having Sport Court’s seal of approval!

The Gallery is probably one of our favorite features. People aren’t going to make such an investment without doing a little research, and that includes checking out the merchandise!

The Gallery lets you search based on sport/family/facility. From there you can continue to filter your search! You can go ahead and Pin that sport court if you like- add it to your DREAM HOME Board. 🙂

The BEST part, is on the dealers’ side. SC Dealers can upload their latest images, and add in the filtering right there-just add the keywords in! The SH editor does all the hard work for them. So the filtering is a total dream!

The Form Builder is also wonderful!  They can collect the information that is critical to make a connection with an inquiring client! So clean and crisp!

The mobile version is SO NICE!  It is so basic, it makes the user experience extra fantastic!  They do say to keep it simple, and simple is just perfect in this case!

We hope Sport Court West loves their new site as we do!  We know that they will adore the ease of use of the SquareHook tool, and the customization options that are at their fingertips!

Contact us if you are interested in a little business website nip/tuck. We PROMISE, a seriously good looking website is something we take seriously, and so will your clients!

Check Out Our Multi-Dealer Feature At Work!

We have been so thrilled to implement a multi-dealer feature to replicate websites easily for clients who franchise or clone their site for different locations.  We know the Sport Court Dealers would love the updated Sport Court website!

We created a customized template for the Sport Court Dealers. It has a similar look and feel to the corporate headquarters, but can be customized to focus on sports related to their specific location….because heaven know that ice hockey is a lot more popular back east than west coast #amiright?

image

Sport Court of Southern California was one of our first template customizers.  It has been such a pleasure working with them! Their team wanted to incorporate a number of outside sports that were more specific for their area.  They worked with us to customize their accessories products page as well as their outdoor and indoor sports

pages.

image

One of our favorite features of the template we created for the SC dealers is the ability for them to adjust their product offering.  They don’t have to add a completely new page for every product (that would be ALOT of pages)….they can just add a product to their adjusted eCommerce page. 

image

Sport Court SC can adjust any product just by selecting it and adjusting content and imagery.

image

We are so pumped that Sport Court Southern California is up and running, and trained, so they can easily update their website as their product offerings change!  

If you’re looking to create a killer website, or are interested in duplicating your existing website, contact us!  We’re happy to help in any way.  We’re also very available for your website building questions!  801-386-9828

Portafloor Website Recently Got a Website Upgrade

image

Portafloor had a pretty nice website before we began their conversion.  There were just a few things that they definitely wanted to change- edibility and their MOBILE FRIENDLY FUNCTIONALITY was definitely one of them!

image

People shouldn’t have to lose the experience because they’re on a different device.  With Portafloor site visitors, they won’t. The mobile version of this site is sharp and turned out great.  The interactive tabs piece continues to rotate in the website on a smartphone.

image

We added a secondary navigation for the ease of use for the site visitors to find the industry or products.

image

We customized the portfolio for Portafloor, creating a section that looked like a tertiary navigation.  They wanted their users to select any category and be able to view only that selection. The result was a clean navigation!

image

We also added a video channel search functionality for site visitors, where they can peruse videos that are updated through your YouTube/Vimeo video channel.

image

We integrated a dropdown feature for the FAQ page, because there was a lot of content, and they didn’t want to overwhelm those looking for answers.  A dropdown feature definitely simplified this content-heavy page.

image

We are really pleased with the final results of this website.  Portafloor’s new site is just a bit more user friendly, ALOT more easy to maintain, and COMPLETELY mobile friendly!  If you’re looking to bring your website technology into 2014, contact us!  We are up for any task!

Connor Sports Needed a Website Upgrade, So They Called SquareHook

image

After completing the Sport Court website, we had a great concept of how their sister company Connor Sport’s website would look. Connor Sports really wanted to make sure this site was informative to people involved in athletic sports flooring-coaches, church and community groups, schools and universities to name a few.

image

On the home page, we integrated a sweet tab feature, so people can click through a number of categories, get a little bit of information and in turn get directed right to where they are looking for answers.

image

Connor Sports has been around for over a century, so there was no pressure in highlighting moments in their business history. 🙂  We integrated a great dropdown feature, to minimize the amount of content a site visitor would immediately see on the website. They could select a year and the commentary will pop down.

image

Connor Sports as well as Sports Court produce a number of great videos showcasing their products, happy clients, and large events that use their products. They wanted to make all of their videos available to site visitors. We integrated a sweet feature that embeds their YouTube/Vimeo videos.  That way, if they add a new video to their channel, it will automatically populate on their videos page.

image

Connor Sports has a really impressive image gallery, they wanted to make sure their images were searched and categorized so site visitors could find what they were looking for.  We had their gallery separated into 3 sections: products, facilities, and sport.  Selecting any category makes the gallery become interactive and returns what you were searching for!

image

We integrated our wonderful SquareHook blogging feature as well as integrated their Facebook feed as well on their News page.  This way, they can let people know of the latest and greatest happenings at Connor.

image

We did accept a challenge on this site, when it came to having an interactive website that was also great on a smart phone!  But this site sure looks awesome on any device.

image

The Find a Dealer page is great, where a site visitor can type in a zip code and be directed to the nearest dealer.  So they don’t have to search around or be redirected through corporate headquarters to get to the proper person they should talk to.

image

The team over at Connor Sport are really pleased with the final results.  They can now easily edit their own site, add new content and files whenever.  We must say, we love it too!  Really excited for their dealers to use this site as a reference point for their clientele.

Sport Court Now Uses SquareHook CMS Tool

We have had the utmost pleasure putting together the new Sport Court website.  We are all users of their products-at one time or another, as well as a spectators of sports where athletes use their products on the daily.

Being the NCAA bracket tour, USA/Canada Volleyball, US Soccer Foundation, NBA Jam flooring specialists-there was a lot of pressure to make the World’s Largest Courtbuilder website stellar!

image

Sport Court wanted several things solved for them with a new website:

  1. Complete mobile functionality
  2. Easy edibility
  3. Ability to replicate pages
  4. Blogging tool to update latest news
  5. Easier user functionality for site visitors to navigate
  6. Gallery functionality based on sport and venue
  7. and more!

We were up for the challenge!  Sport Court had a great website to help glean from.  We began doing wire frames and heat maps to detect where users navigated and got stuck throughout the site.  Sport Court wanted users to better reach their final destination, and contact a dealer to find out more about a sport court.   With knew that ease of use was key, and linking pages and a breadcrumb trail throughout made it easier for users to get around.

With the combined talents of a SquareHook’s Creative Director and Sport Court’s Senior Graphic Designer, we were able to find a great look and feel that was completely responsive.

image

Our team custom programmed galleries that would be easy to search and scroll through, as well as adding a Pintrest function.

image

While creating individual sport pages, we learned a TON about sports as well as some sports that are more internationally known-netball anyone? 

We were even able to go on the tour of their Utah Headquarters, right before the NCAA Final Four. It was pretty rad to see the million dollar flooring!

image

image

With Sport Court reaching every continent around the globe, we had to make sure that they had an international translator on their site.

image

We’re really excited to work on further projects with Sport Court and Connor Sport Court!  Their products are amazing, and we hope they feel that their site reflects how wonderful their offerings are. 🙂
