Baseline Nutritionals ® is the supplement manufacturer of world-renowned formulator Jon Barron. When the company contacted me the entire site was built using static html pages that could not change without editing the code. This made it difficult for those who needed to do so to update the site in a timely fashion when necessary.
While working with their customer support personel, I built a content management system allowing them to modify almost all of the content on each product page from an administrative control panel, including: all supplement FAQ's, all supplument facts data, all ingredient descriptions, and more...
We also built numerous backend systems for managing the site such as: backorder tracking, new customer notification systems, product ingredient and FAQ searching, returns (RMA) tracking, as well as many fraud prevention systems. I also helped manage the LAMP stamp in the backend to include development systems, testing systems, and finally the production web environment!
King Kong Roofing contacted me out of a desperate need to build a web presence for their business. Phone book advertising can help a lot, but in today's world everyone wants to see examples of your work, and more information about you. King Kong Roofing had only an email address on their business cards, but no web address to go with it.
After discussing with them their needs in their website I designed and built a complete content management system allowing them to manage individual web pages, all content on the site, and complete control over their photo galleries. The visibility of their company has grown tremendously, as has their business!
Utilizing only Facebook as a means to share her creations, Leah Miller contacted me to design a site using an existing template and layout, that would allow her to easily manage all products, descriptions, and photos in a single location that would be easily viewed by potential customers. As anyone with a Facebook page knows, individual posts and shares can quickly get lost when you have lots of active friends! All of Leah's creations are posted to her Facebook account, shared with all of her friends, family, and followers, and stored in a central location so everyone can come back and see them again and find her latest creations!
Yet another great business that relied solely on word-of-mouth and yellow pages ads! We all know the power of word-of-mouth advertising, and I dare say the best website in the world will never compare with the power of word-of-mouth, nevertheless you need to find more customers than the neighbors of those you already service!
I designed and built the entire site for Bryan so he could quickly update articles, add before and after photos to his gallery, update testimonials from customers, create coupons and news blurbs, and most importantly capture estimates from customers visiting his website. All estimate contacts are not only emailed to Bryan but SMS texted to his phone so he can immediately contact potential clients about their needs!
My Projects and Ministry Helps
What originally started out as a personal project to aide in my learning some advanced programming techniques, has become an awesome Framework used to develop many other awesome websites. Why is mine unique, or why should it be used instead of the myriad of other PHP frameworks? I don't know! I built it for me! That just means that I know it front and back and as such can develop really fast with it! I bought a domain for it, but I haven't posted anythere yet, so enjoy a blank page!
Similarly to my TinderboxPHP framework, MasadaLinux was originally developed as a pet project. I wanted to see the benefits of using PHP as a package management backend for a Gnu/Linux workstation. I continued on and built a complete workstation operating system utilizing the Plaxo PHP package management framework. I was blown away at the power and speed of command-line PHP. While I continue to hack around on it, and use it on my own desktop for development, I have not had the extra time to finish with the package distribution system needed for rapid installation on multiple workstations or for other people to download those packages. One of these days...
Pulpit News is my personal blog space to rant about things of this world and things of the next. Contrary to typical technologists and computer geeks, I rejected the worldly teachings of evolution and many other anti-God theories. In June of 2005 the Lord Jesus Christ knocked on my heart and I asked him in. Now I am a dedicated student of the Word and study the King James Bible. I like to teach and preach the Word where I can. This site is sorely neglected, but one day will host more of my studies and messages.
Oh, yeah, and I designed and built the entire site using a custom content management system allowing multiple authors to write articles and publish them along with managing comments and followers. I have not promoted the site, so I am the only author on it.
I was born again while attending Pastor Mike Hoover's church in Arizona. A couple short years later he moved to Indiana where he started the Historic Baptist Church at Stampers Creek. The site has had many interations over the years from static pages with an email address and contact information to a drupal portal with access to the Pastor's blog and a small photo gallery.
Currently we are re-evaluating the needs of the website as the Pastor desires to better serve them and the message they want to get out. It's another blank page, so enjoy it!
The Payson First Baptist website is a custom content management system allowing easy modification of almost anything on the site. While the front-end is sparse for visitors, members of the church have further access to photo galleries, videos that have been uploaded, a complete audio archive of messages dating back to 2005, and much more.
This site is one of the very first websites I built for another church or ministry. Very little has changed. But very little is needed. Pastor Ware's only desire is that you come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. The website exists solely to help those searching find his church in Glendale Arizona.
