Today’s Webs user example site comes from a group of Tufts University undergraduates producing a “web-retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet”. Not only is the concept of JulesandMonty a lot of fun, the website they’re using to promote it is very nicely done!

One reason this site is so successful is the clean design. The layout is logical and well organized, and the colors are consistent and classy. This is so important for your website, because a cluttered look or overwhelming color scheme can cause people to abandon your website as quickly as they came to it. It’s so easy to hit that back button when your eye sees something that doesn’t agree with it.


When we talk about customer appreciation and customer service, sometimes business-to-business companies feel a little left out. But they shouldn’t! Good customer service is good customer service, even if your customer is another business.

Today’s example site comes from a long-time Webs user whose website shows a commitment to their B2B customers in several ways. Dog Eat Dog, Inc. designs and manufactures custom mobile solutions for catering and retail clients — creating things like catering trailers, food trucks, and kiosks (how cool!). Here’s how Dog Eat Dog shows their customer focus through their website:


Since our theme on the blog this month has been building community around your business, it seems appropriate that our Webs user example site today should be about community as well. A bit of a departure since we are not talking about marketing a business in this edition, instead we’re going to look at a great website created by a group of high school students in Los Angeles to help in the effort to combat bullying.

The website is the project of Middle College High School students Chinonso Anokwute, Rigoberto Flores Trigo, Carla Torres, Marquis Mark, Maria Espericueta, Zaria Keaton, Stephanie Henriquez, and Miguel Morales. These self-titled Whiz Kids participated in The Aspen Challenge in 2013, a program in which LA area students came together to work on issues that matter to them and present their solutions.


In keeping with this month’s theme of trends and inspiration, today’s example site was chosen for its great use of a major trend in marketing right now: content marketing.

Content marketing is a strategy that involves creating and sharing various types of content (articles, photos, whitepapers, etc.) with the goal of boosting SEO, driving traffic, building loyalty, and acquiring new leads. If you’ve been reading the blog here for awhile, you’re no doubt already familiar with Content Marketing – not just because we’ve talked about it before, but also because a blog is a great example of content marketing!


Today’s Webs user example website comes to us all the way from Reykjavik, Iceland! Jon Arnar is an artist who uses his website to promote his exhibitions, show off his fantastic body of work, and sell paintings through an online store.

Aside from being up-to-date and robust, one feature that really makes Jon’s site stand out is his use of a very appropriate Webs theme called “Gallery” (appropriately).

This is a clean and understated theme that offers a little something extra toward the footer to give visitors a sense of place. This is especially nice for artists like Jon who live in a particular city but sell their artwork to people all over the world.


Time for another great website example from a Webs user! Feels like it’s been awhile since our last example site review, so let’s dive right in.

Today we’re going to take a look at the website of El Faro Restaurant in Summit, Illinois. The first thing you’ll learn about El Faro form their website is that this is the home of the Giant Burritos (we’re sold already!). The second thing you’ll notice is that they are open 24 hours, which is great because the middle of the night is the perfect time for a giant burrito.


This week’s Webs user example site comes to us all the way from Zambia!

Some websites offer splashy products that are easy to photography and are universally exciting to people browsing the web. For the owners of these websites, making a visually appealing website that people will want to browse is a snap (especially when you have a snazzy drag-and-drop sitebuilder…)

For Mutwile Enterprises, the situation is a little different. In their own words, Mutwile is a group of companies involved in the “infrastructure development, fluid/ lubricant handling equipment, and logistics sectors of the Zambian economy.”


Happy Wednesday folks! We’re halfway through the week and that means it’s time for another great example site from a stand-out Webs user.

This week we’re taking a look at the website for RSM Montessori School in southern California. Usually we’ll pick out one thing that a site is doing well and discuss that. However the main feature of today’s site that stands out is how comprehensive it is. The site’s owner is clearly engaged and is using many of the tools available through Webs’ SiteBuilder to create a great experience for visitors.


Today’s example site comes to us from Jacob Jesuthasan, an English photographer. We’re always happy to come across photography portfolio sites from our users; because it’s so easy to add slideshows and galleries, Webs is a great platforms for artists to showcase their work.

The portfolio site of Jacob J Photography is a great example. Jacob chose a very simple template to customize that will really let his photographs shine. The background complements his subjects and style very nicely.


It’s Wednesday afternoon, which means it’s time to look at another great example site built by a Webs user!

This week we’re looking at Neville Hopwood Photography. There are lots of great things about Neville’s site; from big, beautiful images to clean navigation and layout. What we want to focus on today is his use of logos on the About page.

There are a few good ways to toot your own horn on your website and lend a little more credibility to your services. You can showcase actual customer testimonials, you can supply a list of all your satisfied customers, and — perhaps most visually impactful — you can show the logos of all the big names who’ve hired you in the past.
