MrLocalSearch.com is a brand new web site designed to showcase my company's internet marketing services. We work with small businesses to help them generate ongoing leads by using a range of tools - SEO, video marketing, social media, Google Maps, Press Releases and more.
We aim to be friendly, approachable and jargon free. No techy lingo from this lot! The personality of the website should be fun, strongly branded and clean looking (we LOVE white space!).
Our target audience is small business owners from English speaking countries (mainly UK and USA). Most of these people will already be familiar with our company so we would like strong branding that we can also use in our direct marketing pieces.
Our audience are business people with no time for flashy gimmicks, tricks, and nonsense. They want relevant information that will help them to manage and grow their businesses better. That is what we aim to do.
Looking for a Wordpress design that will lend itself to easy customisation and upgrades. I have 4 specific requirements.
Open to suggestions but I had in mind something to reflect our name - Mr Local Search.com. Maybe a cartoon type figure, superhero-ish in a ironic way (like a geeky type with a super hero costume under his shirt). Simple strong colours. I like a green and blue combo but again, please send through what you think works for memorable branding.
Please see attached pic. The Homepage will be a video and next to it a form. I would like the nav bar to be in a tab format. White background please.
3. Static page.
Must be very simple and clean with plenty white space. No borders please (see this web page for what I mean - http://www.affgenie.com/affiliate-genie.php ). Of course the static page will have the tab menu and the branding.
4. Blog pages.
I would like a 3 column layout with buttons for Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Again, the blog should maintain the same branding. As usual, clean and elegant design please.
Finally, the above are my preferences but please be creative and where you think you can improve what I have said please do so.
