Austin Fitness Rentals:

Austin Fitness Rentals is a new company in Austin Texas that specializes in renting health club quality fitness equipment. We also designed their logo, truck graphics, shirts, store graphics and event tent.

Target Market & Design:

The target market is homeowners in Austin who want health-club quality fitness equipment in their homes. Since this is a new concept and a new company selling to a sophisticated market we focused on creating a very clean site with great UX /UI. The goal was to create a site that made the company appear well established and capable of providing concierge level service.

UX/UI User Experience:

We incorporated a number unobtrusive yet high-end features. They make the site easy to use and convey the “high-end” feel of the products. 
1) Home page has an animate “slide show” thet simultaneously shows off the equipment and conveys the concept of being able to swap out equipment. 
2) There was a ton of information that needed to be communicated about rental programs. We solved this by using Tabs to keep the rental information on the same page as the equipment. 
3) By clicking Get Started on these tabs customers are taken to the correct online rental agreement. These forms are clean and concisely formatted to make then appear short and easy, which results is a very low exit rate.
4) Once the form is completed the site generates confirmation and notification emails. 
5) The email received by AFR is fully formatted and ready to be printed. Once signed it becomes the official contract.
This entire rental process can be completed within 2 pages from the time they hit the site. 

SEO/SEM Search Engine Optimization:

SEO SEM:Best practices throughout site for Search Engine Optimization. Google Webmaster, Bing webmaster, Facebook, Google +, Google Places, and hand registered on many other sites.
These are all legitimate rankings- we do NOT use grey or black hat SEO -period!
We had AFR on page 1 of Google in 2 weeks of launching site.
Google rankings after 3 months:
   #1,2,5,10 & 11 “fitness equipment rentals Austin Tx”
   #1 & 10 “fitness equipment rentals Austin”
   #3 “fitness equipment austin”
   #4 “exercise equipment austin”

Managed Hosting & Security:

Security: One of the biggest advantages of being on a managed dedicated server is security. We can secure client sites in ways that just aren't possible in a shared hosting environment. The methods we use won't be sharing online. Suffice it to say there are many levels. 
Dedicated Server: The server itself is fast. And since we are running at less than 20% of the server's capacity, our sites don't run out of resources. Shared hosting servers by comparison 
Google Mod Pagespeed: Increases the average sites Google PageSpeed rating from 70 to 90+. We can also Lazy Load images (think Pinterest) and a number of other speed tuning techniques.

Testimonial:

I'd like to take a moment to commend the excellent and high-quality work that Eric at Complete Creative Services has done for my company, Austin Fitness Rentals. On multiple occasions Eric has gone above and beyond to ensure we have what we need (often on short notice) to service our customers in the manner to which they are accustom. We follow a motto similar to the Ritz Carlton in that we are ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen. That means that we do whatever it takes to ensure we maintain a professional image and provide solutions to our customer's wishes in a complete, efficient and timely matter.
Though Eric has many demands on his time, he always sets his client's priorities above his own which allows us to continue to provide impeccable service to our customers.
I can't recommend Eric's abilities highly enough and can guarantee from my personal experience with his work that anyone fortunate enough to engage the services of Complete Creative Services will have an experience beyond their expectations. -Kyle

MyMountainTown.com

About My Mountain Town:

My Mountain Town is the eveolution of 285bound.com. We rebuilt and upgraded everything in the site. Along the way we also helped rebrand the site as My Mountain Town and created a new logo that better reflects the community. 

Target Market & Design:

The target market is mountain towns and communities. We strived to create a community portal for these often isolated communities. The center of My Mountain Town are the Forums, which we enhanced to make them easier to use and read. We also improved the balance between advertising and content. 

UX/UI User Experience:

For My Mountain town the biggest challenge was to simplify everything. Fully integrating the forum into the site and creating a clean menu system greatly improved the user experience.

The second challenge was to maintain the balance between advertising and content. We accomplished this by unifying positioning of ads in key areas while removing them from others such as user profiles. Advertisers are happy with the new site and new features they now have such as full business profiles, google maps and analytics.  

Finally we laid the foundation for a lot more great functionality. Which we can't tell you about just yet.

SEO/SEM Search Engine Optimization:

Search engine Optimization is built into all areas of the site form the ground up. By correctly listing the newly upgraded site everywhere we were able to achieve 100,000+ visitors in the first 30 days of the site being up.

Social media buttons also enable users to share forum posts and other content. This continues to drive membership and growth.
