Gill's ~ Weyauwega, WI

The Background

Howard Mattes was a referral from the Waupaca Area Chamber of Commerce. When we first met he said he was the new owner of Gill's Landing Bar and needed a website presence.

At his request, we started the discovery process by determining the best domain name to use and helped walk him through the process of getting it registered and set-up.

The Project Brief

Howard requested the website be kept simple with minimal pages to navigate. He wanted his website visitors to easily find the information they needed.

Initially this presented an SEO challenge due to the limited content. After a short time in business, Howard provided us with his new branding idea and we were able to position Gill's as a place for family friendly fun on the rive in Weyauwega.

Our Approach

Howard was working with Office Outfitters in Waupaca for his print advertising; his concept was to have a website design to look similar to the flyers which he had created.

Lorie Sasse has been our point of contact at Office Outfitters on other client projects, so we contacted her for the information needed for the Gill's Landing website. She quickly sent over the digital files for his flyers along with the images which they used. She also supplied us with the names of all the fonts used so we were able to create a cohesive look from print to digital.

The Results

The new website provides visitors with needed information about Gill's Landing. It's responsive and easy to navigate multiple devices. The color scheme and layout match perfectly with Howard's vision. 

After the project was finished, Howard contacted us to start a digital marketing strategy in order to help his customers leave reviews of their experiences when visiting Gill's. This also resulted in creation of new listings in many different directories which drive traffic to the website.
