Net Designs created a website for the Early Risers BNI group that meets in the Stevensville/St. Joseph, Michigan area. The group is made up of 21 local businesses which support each other’s growth through “word-of-mouth” advertising and referrals. Joe Daniel dove into this project with gusto and created the following video to “unveil” the finished website. The website can be viewed in our portfolio or at earlyrisersbni.com.

Accelerating at full speed into unknown territory, technology continues to push boundaries and surpass unfathomable limits. Driving right alongside, marketing strategies and business practices are similarly revolutionizing to keep pace with the times.
Many of these advancements have undeniably eased a few burdens, but becoming complacent and falling asleep at the wheel of your business’ technological dealings is a danger to the health of the company. As a business owner, being able to tap into that pocket of potential where technology properly serves the needs of your company without compromising intrinsic ingenuity is a responsibility not to be taken lightly. The first arena to take charge and apply this concept, is your website.
Take a moment to consider what device are you reading this on. Is it your work laptop? Home desktop? Maybe you’re thumbing through this page smartphone in hand?
If you are reading from a smartphone or mobile device, you probably noticed that you didn’t have to endure the painful, tedious process of pinch zooming, panning, double tapping, swiping, and scrolling to adapt this page so it is manageable to read. You’re welcome.
Trying to master these pesky magnification gestures is like trying to translate some bizarre dialect of technological sign language just to communicate with your mobile device. To say the least, these touch sensitive commands are quickly becoming a touchy subject for your customers. The good news is that there is something you can do to alleviate the infuriation and thinning patience your visitors are subjected to when they view your website.
As the world rapidly journeys further into the digital age, having an outstanding website is no longer optional, but vital for business, marketing, and communication.
Free website builders now occupy a not-so-small corner of the Internet, proclaiming their easy to use services that extraordinarily require no coding experience or tech skills whatsoever. Once seated upon a highly sought after throne, website designers are becoming another group of innovative humans losing out on jobs due to technology. The allure of these drag and drop website builders have many business owners trying their hand at building their own websites to save money. But the truth is, a free website builder can cost much more in wasted time and frustration.
If you want your website to truly represent you, your brand, and your company, then you need to hire a website designer.
Any Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce member who might be struggling to succeed picked up a free, but world class round of advice from a world renowned audiologist who just happens to be a hometown super star who continues to anchor her business right here in Michigan’s Great Southwest. They would also do well to mirror the hard work of the key major award winners honored by the Chamber tonight as well.
Dr. Gyl Kasewurm told members of the Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce tonight to succeed in business you have to have passion for what you do. It was almost as if the keynoter and the two major award winners were in total sync with one another, based on the accomplishments that each have achieved over the years.
At the Lakeshore Chamber’s Annual Meeting at Tabor Hill Winery & Restaurant tonight, Wendy Bedell of Net Designs in Stevensville was the recipient of the Business of the Year Award by Chamber President Claudia Ruppel. It’s ironic that 15 years after her first major job in her newly launched business was the Lakeshore Chamber website and now, still producing that site Bedell was acknowledged for outstanding design in multiple media formats and her success as a small company that works with proven partners to accomplish big things.
Net Designs has crafted work for accounting firms, restaurants, breweries, spas, architectural firms and even manufacturers to earn the recognition of fellow Chamber members for whom she maintains the organizational website on an every day basis.
The other major award winner was new State Budget Director Al Pscholka who has been a Lakeshore advocate and an outstanding resource for all of Michigan’s Great Southwest through his work as a Lincoln Township Trustee, a three-term member of the Michigan State House of Representatives, and now serving as Governor Rick Snyder’s Budget Director.
Both Bedell and Pscholka exemplify the attributes that Dr. Kasewurm, as keynote speaker for tonight’s function, calls critical for success in business today. Dr. Kasewurm, who’s Professional Hearing Services audiology practice in St. Joseph is the single largest such practice in the nation with ten times the revenue of the average audiology practice in the country, delivered key advice to business people looking to succeed in today’s world of business.
