Work Hard, Play Hard: How VGM Forbin Launched 9 Websites in One Week

Posted by vgmforbin in Customer Websites

launched 9 websites

 

If you follow us on Facebook, it might seem like all we do is host theme parties and get silly at work (World Cup Lunch, anyone?). That’s not entirely untrue; we like to celebrate and reward ourselves for the hard work we’ve put in, and there’s been a lot of that lately. Last week was especially successful, as we launched 9 new websites for our clients. Yes, that’s right…9. While juggling website design, copywriting, programming and web marketing for multiple clients can get overwhelming at times, there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing a successful website launch.

 

We’ve worked extremely hard to finish these sites in the last week, and it has paid off in a big way. There are 9 more beautiful, mobile-responsive, helpful, and user-friendly websites on the Internet now. Our clients have the tools they need to reach their audience on the web and provide them with the resources, products and services they need 24/7. None of this would be possible without the commitment, extensive communication and feedback provided by our awesome clients.

 

We work hard and we play hard. If you don’t believe the “work” part, just take a gander at the 9 websites we launched last week (can’t say that enough!).

 

cvhospice.org

 

Cedar Valley Hospice now has a website with full content management and clear sections for patients and family members, healthcare professionals, and people who want to donate or volunteer. It also offers an updatable events calendar.

 

progressivemobility.com

 

Progressive Mobility and Medical’s new website features a full catalog that customers can use to learn more about their products and home accessibility services available at their facility in Washington, PA.

 

myomnimedical.com

 

With Omni Medical’s new website and social media campaign, patients can get connected with mobility experts based in Irvine, CA to get the spinal cord injury supplies they need.

 

dmeinc.net

 

Dartmouth Medical Equipment’s website and social media campaign now provides their customers with information about their wide variety of products, including CPAP machines, breast pumps, and compression therapy in North Dartmouth, MA. The site also features a convenient breast pump order form.

 

jpo-online.com

 

For this site and social package, we wanted to make it simple for people in Arkansas and Southern Missouri with prosthetic and orthotic needs to connect with practitioners at Jonesboro Prosthetic & Orthotic Laboratory to get the medical equipment, therapy and care they need. To do that, we included a photo gallery, video gallery and a Google Maps locator.

 

matconusa.net

 

Material Control Systems (Matcon) is a different client for us. They needed to reach other businesses with a clean site to explain their services and the benefits of working with them for returnable packaging solutions.  Their site features a full content management system and a photo gallery. Matcon is based in Port Byron, IL.

 

dwauto.com

 

We worked with DW Auto and Home Mobility of Columbia, MO to show customers what their specialties are: making your home and vehicles fully accessible and comfortable. The site has accessible van inventory and a product catalog as well as a resource center.

 

midmooandp.com

 

For this site and social media plan, we visually highlighted the advanced technology Mid-MO O & P offers for its patients so they can lead active lives.  Mid-MO O&P is based in Columbia, MO.

 

www.alliedpurchasing.com

 

Allied Purchasing provides members in the bottled water, dairy, soft drink, water treatment and craft brewery industries with buying group discounts on the equipment and supplies they need. The Allied Purchasing Ordering System we created allows Allied Purchasing to place orders for their members to their partner suppliers. Allied Purchasing is able to add, edit, and remove orders, members, and suppliers though an intuitive grid layout. The cloud-based system allows Allied Purchasing to now take their ordering system on the go, enabling orders to be placed on the road and at tradeshows.

 

Creating these sites has been an incredible amount of work, and all of our amazing employees have had to put in some extra time to complete them, but it has been well worth it. We’re proud of these accomplishments. It seems a mini happy dance is in order.

Lock it Down: How to Create a Strong Password

Posted by vgmforbin in Tech News

Forbin's strong password creation tips

The days of using “123abc” as your password are long gone! Try these strategies for making a rock solid password

Protect all of your online accounts with these strong password creation tips

Another week, another major cyber-attack. The intended victim this time was online selling giant eBay. The attack compromised a database containing encrypted passwords and other non-financial data. After extensive testing, eBay announced that while there has not been any unauthorized activity for eBay users, they are still recommending that their millions of users change their passwords for enhanced security.

 

This attack, combined with the ever-present danger of cyber criminals lurking in the shadows of the internet, make having a different and strong password for each of your online accounts even more important. But what makes a password “strong?” Your friends at VGM Forbin are here with some simple tips for creating passwords that are harder to crack than the vaults at Fort Knox.

 

Remember the “8-4 Rule”

There are two parts to this rule:

  • Part one: Password Length- your new password should be at least 8 characters in length, and longer if possible.
  • Part two: Password Complexity- your new password should also contain at least one character from each of these four groups: 1) lowercase letters, 2) uppercase letters, 3) numbers and 4) special characters

 

These two things create the “8-4 Rule:” at least eight characters in length, with at least one character from each of the four categories.

 

Avoid similar words

Your first name, middle name or last name shouldn’t be in your password. Skip out on using your kids’ names and pet names too. You should also stay clear of the name of the account you are logging into. For example, if you are resetting your Facebook password, the word “facebook” shouldn’t be in the title.

 

Randomize

“Oh, I need numbers. I’ll just use my birthday.” Your birthday, spouse’s birthday or kids’ birthdays should also be avoided. If you need a memorable number, use a jersey number from high school sports or other more obscure number that does not show up in a personal information search.

 

Use multiple passwords

Having a strong password is great, but do not use the same password for all of your logins. Create a unique strong password for each login, which leads us too…

 

Keep track of your passwords

There are a number of ways to keep track of your passwords without writing them down. Password managers, such as KeePass1Password, or Keeper can store all of your unique passwords securely.

 

Change your passwords regularly

Changing your password once every couple of months should do the trick. However, do not change your password if you have followed a link from an email asking you to do so. Clicking the link could end up allowing the sender of the email to track your keystrokes and steal your password.

 

Having strong passwords for each of your online logins, from Facebook and Twitter to your online banking account, is a great first line of defense against losing your personal or financial information. We hope these tips help you create a password that gives you a little more peace of mind.

Walking on Sunshine: 4 Ways Business Systems can Make You Happier

Posted by vgmforbin in Programming

Business systems from VGM Forbin

How can you make your workplace a bit more spritely? With a business system from VGM Forbin, of course!

Think about all the processes at your job that you use on a daily basis. From clocking in and out to managing customer projects in a database and organizing purchase orders, business systems are used for a variety of tasks in businesses across the country. Keeping critical information in an easy to reach location helps businesses of all sizes and in all industries maximize their efficiency.

 

At VGM Forbin, our programming and design teams are skilled at creating business systems that take a manual, time consuming process and automate it for the benefit of the customer. From optimizing purchase order systems and inventory to developing business systems for project and employee management, Forbin can breathe simplicity into a work process full of pain points.

Forbin business system dashboard

Forbin business systems give you the information you need in a simple layout.

 

But why? Why do you need a new business system when you already have a manual process in place that you have used for years and are comfortable with? Here are a few ways business systems could take your company to the next level:

 

Forbin business system

Forbin’s business systems allow you to capture the same information easily every time.

They Promote Consistency- whatever your specific process is, it requires the same information in the same format every time. By doing it manually, you are inviting the chance for employees to skip steps, not get some of the necessary information or do things out of order. With a uniform, step-by-step process in a business system, you get the right information in the right order every time.

 

They Save Time- by making your work processes simple and repeatable, your employees can learn to do them quickly, saving you time. This time can be spent bringing in more business, or on larger projects that will help you achieve your business goals.

Forbin health services business system

Forbin’s business systems, like this one built for health systems, feature an easy-to-use interface for quick navigation.

 

They Promote Efficiency- by making time consuming tasks go quicker, your employees are able to spend more time using their skills and abilities to focus on producing quality work. When they don’t have to spend hours every week compiling data because a business system does it for them, it frees them up to maximize their newly found free time doing more important tasks.

 

They Promote Happiness- we’re not making this up. When you deliver on time, your customers are happy. When your customers are happy, you and your employees are happy. Whether it helps you track orders, manage inventory or smooth out any other work process you have, a business system helps reduce stress and increase the number of smiles you see at work.

 

Are you tired of the same process that, while vital to your business, causes more headaches than you want? Forbin has experience with listening to customers’ pain points, identifying possible solutions and developing them for companies in a wide range of industries including manufacturing, transportation, medical equipment and hospice ordering systems. We would love to talk with you about your pain points, so get in touch with Forbin today to see how we can help!

4 Reasons Why Responsive Design Turbocharges Your Website’s SEO

Posted by vgmforbin in Web Development Process

Responsive design from Forbin

Responsive design helps the content of any page reshape and resize to fit any shape, just like water.

Water is one of the most unique substances on Earth in that it can take the form of any container it is put into. Think about it: you pour water into a normal glass, and it becomes that shape. If you pour it in a triangle, it becomes a triangle; if you pour it into a square, it becomes a square, and so on. Water’s ability to fit into any shape or form is a lot like responsive design.

 

We first wrote about responsive design last week explaining what it is, why it is critical for the user experience of your website. Not only is responsive design critical for giving the user the best experience, but it’s “liquid” characteristics are also very helpful for the search engine optimization (SEO) of your website.

 

Google Goes Gaga for Responsive…

…and since Google owns a majority of the search market (67 percent as of this January), they are who you want to impress. Google’s algorithms, the topic of much conversation, favor mobile-optimized websites, especially when it comes to local searches on mobile devices.

 

“But we have a mobile site, so we’re doing just fine!” you cry. True, having a separate mobile site is a good step to take, however the better option in most cases is to have a responsive site. Why? Separate mobile websites have their own URL and HTML code. On the other hand, responsive sites use one set of page files and one URL, which makes it much easier for Google’s bots to index the content.

 

No Need to Start From Scratch

By no means are we saying having a separate mobile site is never a good idea. For some companies that have a lot of content, such as a news website, a separate mobile version of their site would work well. However, when thinking of terms of SEO, this does present a challenge.

 

Let’s say your full website has built up great authority and has made it into the top three of the Google searches you want to be showing up for. When you build a separate mobile site, you have to re-create that authority from scratch. Redesigning your site with responsive design technology allows you to keep your backlinks and previously built up authority, as well as focus your SEO hours on one website. Instead of directing your links to two separate domains, you direct them to your responsive website, meaning you keep(or boost) your SERP rankings.

 

Reduce Your Bounciness

Your website’s bounce rate represents the percentage of users who enter the site and leave the site (bounce) from the same page instead of navigating to other pages. It plays a critical role in Google’s user-friendly mindset.

 

For example, even if your website is doing well in search results, display and functionality problems on mobile devices and tablets can cause a rather large problem for users. They aren’t getting a good experience with your site, so they leave on without visiting other pages. Google will see the high bounce rate for your mobile website as a sign that it is not offering relevant content (a focus of recent algorithm updates), which will most likely lead to your website falling like a rock in rankings.

 

With responsive design, you keep all the same content, but featured in a user-friendly way that keeps them on your website and your bounce rate low.

 

It’s All About the User

The focus of practically all of Google’s algorithm updates has been centered on providing users with a better experience. Since responsive design places an emphasis on designing for users, it makes sense that it would be highly beneficial for your website’s SEO. Oh, and Google is encouraging developers to embrace it, so there is that as well.

 

Think about your current website and how it looks on other devices besides your desktop. Does it allow the content to be like water, adapting well to different screen sizes, or does it make things more difficult for the user?

 

If you’re looking to make the switch to a website that incorporates responsive design, Forbin is your solution. We were one of the first agencies in our area to make responsive design technology a standard in the websites we build. Get in touch with us today to see how we can help!

Responsive Design: Why You MUST Know What it Is

Posted by vgmforbin in Web Design

Responsive design helps your website display correctly on devices of all kinds

Responsive design from VGM Forbin

Not sure what responsive design is? Allow us to drop some knowledge on you.

Think about how many different devices you use to access the internet during the day. There’s your desktop or laptop for work, a smart phone for quick searches during the day, and maybe even a tablet for entertainment when you’re relaxing in the evening on your couch. There’s no denying we live in an “era of mobile,” as ownership and use of multiple mobile devices has increased dramatically over the past few years. If you use multiple devices during the day, you are just one of millions who do so.

 

In the United States, 94 percent of consumers age 16 and older own a mobile phone, and 42 percent of adults 18 and older own a tablet. Even more importantly, 90 percent of adult consumers are moving “sequentially” between multiple screens every day, e.g., smart phone -> PC -> tablet.

 

So, what does this mean for your company’s website? In simplest terms, your website needs to provide users with the best experience possible on a variety of screen sizes. In the past, this has meant creating a completely separate mobile website. However, this is no longer necessary thanks to responsive design.

 

About Responsive Design

 

Responsive design technology allows for a website to reshape itself to fit any screen size while giving users the best experience possible. This reshaping process ensures that the navigation, images, content and other essentials of your website are displayed in a way that benefits customers visiting your site on a PC, laptop, smart phone or tablet of any size.

 

Take the website VGM Forbin created for Iowa State Bank, a winner of a Silver American Advertising Award for mobile responsive design, as an example. In these first two images, you see the old Iowa State Bank website, first in full desktop view, and then shrunk down for a mobile view. While the desktop display looks fine, you’ll notice in the mobile view that much of the home page has been cut off. This forces users to scroll up, down and sideways to view the entire page.

Now, look at the redesigned website that incorporates responsive design technology. The full desktop view looks like you would expect, but the view on the mobile device has been resized and shifted around to make it more user-friendly.

Put another way, the elements of the page – the navigation, images, etc. — have not shrunk, but rather repositioned to fit the new size of the screen. Visually speaking, this is what happened:

 

Responsive design

The page elements (the colored blocks) resize and shift around based on the screen size in responsive design

 

This results in Iowa State Bank’s website looking great and offering users the best experience, whether they are on a desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone of any size. Instead of website that is a miniature version (as many mobile sites are) or that is cut off and hard to navigate, they get the full website in resized, stacked and shifted form.

 

In a quest to make the most user-friendly websites, VGM Forbin is continually researching and testing new technologies such as responsive design. It is essential in this age of mobile use to have a website with responsive design to reach users clearly and effectively, and Forbin is one of the first agencies in our area to make this technology a standard in the websites we build.

We are nothing if not humble here at VGM Forbin. Well, that and busy. We don’t always take (or have) the time to recognize the awesome work our team does day in and day out. That being said, the Forbin team was recognized publicly at the AAF-Cedar Valley American Advertising Awards on Feb. 21, walking away with three awards plus the highly coveted People’s Choice Award. In a break from our normal noses-to-the-grindstone approach, we wanted to showcase our work that was deemed worthy of a Gold or Silver American Advertising Award.

 

Gold Award

Silver Awards

Iowa State Bank Website

With locations in Burlington, Wapello, Mount Union and Morning Sun in southeast Iowa, Iowa State Bank posed the unique situation of marrying a modern look and feel without straying too far from their roots. The solution was an “illustrated” design – no stock images, all custom illustrations and icons – that incorporated the characteristics of their area and customer base. The website was built using responsive design technology. In a world thinking “mobile-first,” we consider responsive web design a standard, not an add-on. We are also one of the first in our area to provide responsive web design to our financial customers.

 

Brent Anderson

“Site feels friendly, particularly for a bank. Responsive design works nicely, easy to access pull-down menus and all info on a phone. Social links stay in view.”

- Brent Anderson, founder of Stir and Enjoy out of KC

 

 

The Cedar Valley Connect App for the Greater Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber

The heart of economic development in the Cedar Valley, the Greater Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber needed their most important information available to users on all kinds of mobile devices.

AAA-judge-corinne

“It’s like the local yellow pages in your pocket.”

- Corinne Skoog, Creative Director at Ahni & Zoe by Creative Memories

 

 

People’s Choice Award- The Greater Cedar Valley Alliance App

Winning this award is sweet, but winning it with the client in attendance made it even sweeter. Getting to share in the excitement of winning this award with the amazing people you created for was a unique experience we’ll keep with us forever.

The “Heartbleed” bug that has been reported on by major news outlets may have you concerned about the security of the personal information your patients and customers are entering into your website. However, VGM Forbin customers can have the peace of mind of knowing that their websites are safe. All VGM Forbin servers are protected from the Heartbleed issue, as a patch was put in place last year.

  • It helps protect information from cybercriminals.
  • Heartbleed is a flaw in OpenSSL.

Medtrade Spring 2014: Key Takeaways for the Web

Posted by vgmforbin in Forbin Events

vgm-booth

Medtrade Spring is always a great event, but this year the buzz about all the industry changes and opportunities that are available was obvious and brought a little more excitement to the show. In the VGM Forbin booth, we talked to a lot of show attendees. Some were business owners who had been in the industry for over 20 years, while others were relatively new players. Some owned larger scale operations, while others had only a handful of employees.

 

Despite the diversity in the providers we talked to, there were a few overarching themes that were brought up repeatedly by visitors in our booth. Here is what we heard the most chatter about and were asked most frequently at Medtrade Spring.

 

Ecommerce is not the end all solution.

With all the talk about cash sales and retail, many providers think that ecommerce — being able to sell products directly from your website — is the solution. However, this is often not the case. Price shopping, small margins and competition with regional or nationwide companies are just a couple of potential roadblocks that those going the Ecommerce route face.

 

An online presence is a must.

The most telling bit behind this fact is that we heard it from multiple providers that had been in the HME industry for years. They had always used traditional print marketing and word of mouth to promote their business. They have seen the power of the internet as a marketing tool and are willing adapt to ensure the success of their business.

 

Having a website is not enough.

You can have the best website in the history of the internet, yet it is worthless if no one can find it. We also spoke with a lot of business owners who asked about things like Search Engine Optimization and Search Engine Marketing. In a Google-owned web world, playing by its rules is paramount to a high ranking in searches. Writing custom content that is optimized and navigating the world of Google AdWords is a timely process that takes the right tools and knowledge to be done correctly. Speaking of time…

 

“I don’t have the time/money for (insert phrase).”

Whether it was SEO, SEM, posting to and managing a Facebook page or blogging, time and money are two things numerous providers we talked to don’t have. They and their staff don’t have time to do these things themselves, but they also don’t have the money to hire an employee dedicated to just that job. Throwing an uneducated, inexperienced intern at online marketing won’t get the results they want either. Luckily, we know some talented individuals at Forbin who can help with your SEO, SEM, social media and blogging.

 

We’re not denying there are challenges ahead in the HME industry. But there are also a lot of opportunities for those that are willing to learn, adapt and thrive. What we saw and learned at Medtrade Spring in Las Vegas proved to us that these types of business owners are out there.

 

If you’re looking for new ways to market your business, reach your audience and get results, VGM Forbin is ready to help. Just contact our Web Marketing Team today to get started!

Forbin Websites Gone Live: Farmers Savings Bank & Trust

Posted by vgmforbin in Customer Websites

Farmers Savings Bank & Trust is a community bank with two branches serving the communities of Traer and Vinton and the surrounding areas in northeast Iowa. They came to Forbin with a unique challenge: create a microsite to be developed quickly so their customers could still access their online banking accounts while a comprehensive new website would be built. Challenge accepted.

The entire development of FSB & T's new website, plus the microsite, took a little over three months to complete.

The entire development of FSB & T’s new website, plus the microsite, took a little over three months to complete.

 

In about one business week, Forbin had the microsite written, designed, developed and live. After an in-person meeting with the client at VGM headquarters, work began on the full site, and in just about three months, the website was launched.

 

The new Farmers Savings Bank & Trust is focused around their role as a financial partner for their communities. Aside from a new look and reorganized content, the website features a dynamic calendar for upcoming events hosted or sponsored by the bank that can be easily updated by bank staff members. Forbin was also able to work with FSB & T’s online banking provider to seamlessly integrate this convenient service into the site.

 

From start to finish, the creation of the microsite and full website was a smooth process helped along by the enthusiasm of the Farmers Savings Bank & Trust staff members we collaborated with. To see the finished product for yourself, go to www.fsb-traer.com.
