Those of you who know me from my doggy daycare and overnight boarding days can totally understand my over-the-top excitement when the extremely talented Alison Kuczwara from Tiny Bold Creative asked me if I was interested in developing the new website for start-up Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co. I was jumping out of my skin at the opportunity to be involved with this cause – helping shelter dogs with coffee sales. Who doesn’t love coffee and who DOESN’T love dogs, right?
We used a template as our foundation for this custom site. We also connected this site with Shopify for our eCommerce platform. We styled the Shopify store to very closely match the branding standards of the website to make the customer feel like they are not leaving the site as they make a purchase. I absolutely love how this site turned out – it’s fresh, simple, and beautiful.
In addition, we added a MailChimp integration with the Shopify store so that all customers are automatically added to the mailing list. We created a branded MailChimp template to match the look + feel of the website so the newsletters really look professional. G&H founder Jordan Karcher also has us on retainer for ongoing site maintenance and other minor addtions to the website. AND, I get to be a guest blogger for G&H. How cool is that? Check out a favorite dog story of mine that I used for one of my posts! Yep, that’s my little girl, Skyy who reminds me every day that the sky is the limit!
