Long Lake, MN
Body Glow is an upscale, boutique style tanning salon offering high-end sunbeds and expert spray tans right in Long Lake, MN.
Angie, the owner of Body Glow attended a presentation I gave as the owner of Wilderness Web Designs about mobile responsive websites. She knew her business’ website was outdated and she was soon able to better understand why she needed her website to be mobile responsive.
Her website was originally created in-house with a free website builder. At the time, her primary objective was to just get something up online inexpensively. After sitting mostly stagnant for years there were some broken links and missing images. The background was also dark, making it difficult to see the logo as well as read the text.
I developed the website with WordPress and upon completion showed Angie how to update it on her own to cut costs. A made the background a light tan to let the images, logo and text stand out. I was sure to feature Body Glow’s location and hours prominently and add a full-scale image slider like Angie wanted.
I integrated social media with her website by featuring social links in the nav bar, a Facebook like box and recent Twitter tweets in the website’s sidebar. I also made general contact easier with embedded forms on the home and contact pages.
