The power of DIY

Written on February 24, 2011 at 8:54 pm, by

Wow. We’ve been building big websites for a long time.  And for about a decade, we’ve been telling people that not only would we never build a website without tools to manage it themselves, but we feel that web developers who do are borderline unethical. I know, “them’s fighting words.” But think about it. ThereContinue Reading »

Rodeo Austin Goes Mobile

Written on February 24, 2011 at 4:33 pm, by

We couldn’t help ourselves. We simply had to release a new mobile site for Rodeo Austin. We spent years telling clients “not yet” when they asked about mobile sites, but now that the stars have aligned so that the time is right, we were excited to help them get on the mobile bandwagon! The RodeoContinue Reading »

The guy down the street

Written on February 24, 2011 at 2:15 am, by

I started doing market research today on what people are looking for in their event websites. On my first phone call to a fair about her event website, I found out that she was pretty happy with the guy down the street who does their website. This was great to hear, since most of theContinue Reading »

Why Event Ecommerce Websites

Written on February 9, 2011 at 5:43 pm, by

I started doing websites in 1995, less than a year after the web came to prominence. I didn’t go to school for it…because it didn’t exist. But I love marketing and I love technology, so I anxiously embraced this new marketing medium when I had the chance. And it’s been a wild ride. Looking back,Continue Reading »

They Like Us, They Really Like Us!

I love award ceremonies. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s seeing and hearing from stars when they’re vulnerable but trying really hard. Maybe it’s seeing George Clooney in a suit. Or maybe it’s just because I love movies and music, so the Oscars, Globes and Grammies are all on my Tivo list (and I evenContinue Reading »

Getting Up Off the Couch

Written on February 3, 2011 at 12:19 am, by

It’s just really hard to overcome inertia to get people off the couch where they read their email and to their computerContinue Reading »

Now that we’ve launched Saffire, I’ve gotten a taste of building our own brand from scratch. And let me tell you oneContinue Reading »
