New Websites in the Works

It has been a very busy first few weeks of 2011 for Cellar Door Consultants. While we continue to manage content for several of our clients, we have also been busy with new sites for a variety of businesses in the Yakima Valley and beyond.

Our new website for Mercer Estates Winery (www.mercerwine.com) went live this last week, developing a new look with custom designed templates, while maintaining continuity with their established branding. We have integrated their social media, YouTube and events into the new site as well as reorganized their trade presence.

New sites in the design phase include projects with several of our winery colleagues. Plaza Winery, Wind Rose Cellars and Sleeping Dog Wines. We are also completing the transfer and redesign of the Motuer De Vine fund raising site for the Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center. Each of these project will also receive custom branded website themes with functionality specifically designed to meet their needs.

We are also working to consolidate all the URLS associated with the Clore Center’s variety of domain names. This will simplify management of their online resources by having all of their domains and websites under one roof.

We completed voice work for our 8th Pixel Soft Films video and 7th  for the Yakima Valley Visitor and Convention Bureau. This has expanded our ability to serve customer needs with custom voice work and compliments video and voice work done for both online and broadcast mediums.

A new data project is underway with one of our current website clients that will assist them in tracking their day to day agriculture business operations, streamlining billing and enhancing compliance reporting processes.  We anticipate bringing this new product to market in the next couple of months.

Our newest client comes to us from the office supply market segment. The Inkwell and Paper Company, LTD is working with Cellar Door Consultants to bring their new website online. After a few months of struggling with a built in website wizard from their current hosting company,  Inkwell searched us out to assist with creating a site that matched existing branding and allows them to manage the site from their office. Within hours of the initial meeting, the initial site was live.

In our spare time we are continuing our community commitment working with the Grandview Chamber of Commerce on the Executive Board and managing the website and social media presence for the Chamber. Additionally we have been working with the SuperHost Yakima Valley as facilitators in the effort with Heritage University as well as continuing our work with Yakima Valley Community College at the Teaching Winery.

Stay tuned for more updates as this very busy start to 2011 progresses.
