Kinduet Home Inspections Inc
When Trevor Karns, Owner and Certified Inspector for Kinduet Home Inspections, Inc was in need of a website for his new company he reached out to Aaron Biby Web Design to design and build it for him. After shopping the project around to multiple agencies he found that I provided the best value and was comfortable moving forward. Our initial meeting was exciting and beneficial not to mention caffeine fueled. We were able to establish project goals and a timeline which emphasized his need to get in front of the local market as quickly as possible.
The project included building and hosting a single page website that would feature his 30+ years experience in the trades as well as his passion for customer service. It also needed to communicate the services he provides and funnel all potential clients to contact Trevor through a simple contact form, or phone call. Additionally Aaron Biby Web Design was contracted to help him setup a Google My Business account, where he could start collecting positive reviews and increase his presence in search results.
To achieve the goals laid out in our project meeting and meet our aggressive timeline I used a new workflow that I believe is going to become my new standard. The blank site was deployed from a blueprint created in Flywheel, then synced down to my local machine using Local by Flywheel. Local gives you the ability to develop WordPress sites locally (duh) which speeds up interaction with WordPress and keeps your development changes to your eyes only.
For those that don’t know a Flywheel “Blueprint” is essentially a backup or snapshot of a WordPress install that you can deploy a new site from. My blueprint includes the latest version of WordPress with my standard adjustments. It also has the Divi Theme pre installed and activated along with the following plugins: Divi Builder, Yoast SEO, Divi Bars, Divi Overlays, Gravity Forms, and Better Search Replace. As I developed the site locally, I could push it up to Flywheel with a single click. The site on Flywheel’s servers was also password protected, so the client could review the changes with a password and approve or request revisions. All in all it was a very efficient workflow.
With in 10 days the website was built, approved, and live. As a part of the build process I also configured Yoast SEO to tie in to a new Google Search Console and Google Analytics account for Trevor. This way we can look at traffic acquisition in the future to determine how and when to expand the site.
All in all this was a fun project that I believe will really help Trevor get his business noticed in the community and help increase his annual sales. It always feels good to help out a fellow small business owner and this was no exception.
