Ventus at Marina El Cid Website

The El Cid Resorts family partnered with Idea Marketing Group to design a new WordPress website for the Ventus at Marina El Cid beach resort. We designed the website to be mobile-friendly and SEO strong, which will help increase its visibility and allow online searchers to find the resort faster and easier. Being built on the WordPress platform also allows staff to make changes and updates as needed.

Custom booking

widget

Exotic resorts like Ventus at Marina El Cid provide an experience in person that begins online. For their new website, we highlighted a booking search function on each page. By positioning this feature as the primary call-to-action, site users can quickly and easily take action.

Luxurious guest experience

Every moment spent on the Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort website is awash in luxury. From the beautiful images to the minimalist text, maximized by white space, users flow through the Ventus website relaxed and engaged in the environment it creates.

Dedicated Spanish website

For a global website like Ventus at Marina El Cid, it was very important to communicate all relevant information in both English and Spanish. So, we implemented a fully translated version of the new site that duplicated all content for Spanish-speaking visitors.

Plainfield Park District Website

The Plainfield Park District partnered with Idea Marketing Group to create an easy to navigate website that would help users find important information quickly and easily. Unlike their old website, the new site is user-friendly and visually dynamic. It is also easy to access on mobile devices and tablets. Because it’s built on the WordPress platform, it allows Park District staff to quickly update events, program information,

and more. Like all of our websites, the new Plainfield Park District website is SEO strong, meaning it will rank well in search engines such as Google and Bing.

Highlight services and information

The Plainfield Park District wanted to offer users relevant information about their services and programs while making their website easy to use. We designed their custom WordPress site with the flexibility and functionality to be updated regularly while maintaining brand consistency.

Showcase quality and technology

Community members know Plainfield Park District is dedicated to quality programs and service. We built a website that reflects that mission and incorporates technology to help users find the information they need, then quickly register and pay online.

Custom map of facilities

The Plainfield Park District manages 91 parks that include 64 playgrounds for more than 100,000 people. So, when we built their website, it was important to include a custom, interactive map showing users each facility’s location and unique features.

Rosebud Restaurants Website

Rosebud Restaurants hired Idea Marketing Group to create a dynamic web presence that highlights each of the company’s individual locations. The website was part of an ongoing marketing strategy implemented to raise awareness for their brand. The blog section allows for new and original content to be added to the website that educates guests about upcoming promotions and events. We also managed a robust social

media presence for the brand and integrated it into the website to maintain customer engagement. Lastly, we were asked to keep the brand top-of-mind with email marketing campaigns delivered directly to their customers’ inbox.

Showcase multiple restaurant brands under one umbrella

The Rosebud restaurant group includes nine individual restaurants, each providing a unique experience. To tie together each location’s identity on the Rosebud website, we focused on high-quality images of the outstanding food as well as each on-site environment.

An e-commerce platform for popular desserts

In addition to the steak, pasta, and seafood Rosebud restaurants are famous for, the company also has a bake shop that offers an assortment of high-quality cakes, cannolis, cookies, and pie. With an e-commerce platform installed on its website, Rosebud can now sell these items online.

Stanton Interior Concepts Website

Stanton Interior Concepts tasked Idea Marketing Group with creating a visually stunning website conveying a vision of innovation, luxury, identity, and sustainability. The custom WordPress website we built mirrors that image and design style. The site features a dynamic project gallery, allowing Stanton to highlight some of its best work.

Gallery for sales presentations

Interior design is extremely visual,

so we built the Stanton Interior Concepts website to showcase a number of high-quality images that fill the user’s screen while minimizing written copy. We also provided a gallery intended to be used on mobile devices during sales presentations.

Easily rotate projects in WordPress

Stanton Interior Concepts has a wide variety of beautiful project images to share with potential clients. From time to time, the company wanted to rotate projects to provide a fresh appearance for return visitors. We made this possible through the backend of their custom WordPress site.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are a top online resource for the meeting and event planning industry. We make it easy for event and meeting planners to research and contact local top event venues and event service providers. We utilize SEM to help drive traffic and generate leads for our members.

What is your position?

I am the President.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the business challenge that you were trying to address with Idea Marketing Group?

We needed to overhaul our existing website, giving it a fresh new look that fit with current trends while providing a better user experience for our viewers. In addition, maintaining our existing Google rankings was crucial, so I wanted to make sure I selected a firm that showcased strong marketing expertise and experience.

What were your company’s business goals for the project?

We aimed to provide a more user friendly interface which would result in additional leads for my clients. In addition, maintaining current search engine rankings while improving them at the same time was critical.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

It was a full overhaul of our website which essentially works as an online directory where our clients can maintain and update their profiles. We moved from a proprietary system to the WordPress platform, which meant exporting existing databases and then remapping them to the new system. There are also several advanced search tools in place for browsing the directory.

How did you come to work with Idea Marketing Group?

We chose them based on previous work they did to our old system, which helped increase search rankings as well as some cosmetic issues. They also came highly recommended from trusted contacts in our city.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

We have spent over $20,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

It was completed within a year.

They helped provide us with us a trackable lead source for our member listings. Our leads have increased 120% since moving over to the platform they built.

How did Idea Marketing Group perform from a project management standpoint?

Idea Marketing Group exceeded our expectations with design and implementation of a new lead generation concept.

What distinguishes Idea Marketing Group from other providers?

They understood our business. They also suggested new ideas for our website that we didn’t know were possible.

Is there anything Idea Marketing Group could have improved or done differently?

With our project, no improvements were necessary. They achieved our goal in getting to the top of the search engines and converting visitors to leads for our member listings.

Feedback summary: 

Idea Marketing Group consistently delivers high quality work for the group and provides reliable processes that enhance their working environment. Internal staff had high praise for the agency’s personalized approach, thorough explanations, and friendly customer service.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are a restaurant group.

What is your role at the company?

I am the marketing manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Idea Marketing Group?

The relationship between our company and Idea Marketing Group is a long-standing one that preceded me. I do know that since being here, they have been an invaluable asset in regards to design – web and some collateral – and helping us with our email campaign efforts. 

What were your company's business goals for the project?

We wanted to continue to improve our communication and branding efforts.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

The project is ongoing, but through their professionalism and attention to detail, I feel like we are at a place where we are finally putting the right emphasis on our communication.

How did you come to work with Idea Marketing Group?

I know that our CFO/COO has a personal relationship with their owner.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

This year, we had Idea Marketing redesign all of our websites. So, with that and the continued monthly retainer this year, it was around $38,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We are still working on some of the sites, but we are hoping to have them completed in the near future.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Idea Marketing as always is a great group to work with. They bring an organized and timely workflow to our somewhat chaotic workflow. It was great having them help us along the way with reaching milestones within a timely fashion. Idea knows our company rather well and subsequently knows our strengths and weaknesses. They know that, sometimes, we can get lost in the details, but they are always there to lead us back to the project.

What distinguishes Idea Marketing Group from other providers?

I would say the personal nature with which they approach their clients.

In hindsight, are there areas in which they could improve or things you might do differently?

Yes, but it has more to do with us than with Idea Marketing. I wish our company was better at getting information and feedback to Idea about whatever project we were currently working on.
