It has been a busy week of getting things wrapped up here at Allshouse Designs. I completed work on a simple informative website for Canyon Park Veterinarian Hospital. It has been over 20 years when Dr. Vaughn purchased the business, when the city of Bothell and the internet was a lot smaller then it is today. Even if you have a well established business in your community, a digital presence is really non-negotiable in today’s day and age. These are some of my favorite types of projects, I love seeing well established local business searchable online! We also spent some great time with Jon prepping “The Race Car” and making the next video.
First and for most, I want to thank all our new followers to our blog and a big thank you to everyone watching and commenting about our last video. Your comments help us get to know what you guys are interested in, so we can give you what you want to see. Keep your comments and questions coming. The race car has been real enjoyable for me; as a previously certified mechanic, this whole process has been bringing back memories. Enjoyment that I thought left me, shortly after my second baby was born. Sometimes life gets busy with work and family, but a meaningful way to play with your friends is so important for balance. With great pleasure, we are proud to announce. Episode 4 of the “The Race Car” has been posted to our YouTube channel, enjoy. We have really focused on the car, with an extended Q and A with Jon, and more car footage.
Our good friends at Spunks have signed up to co-sponsor the car. We will be giving out free seeds at the races, so check out evergreenspeedway.com to see when the mini stock division will be racing. Really, you must try these roasted pumpkin seeds. Go check out their site and our video on their product. Order up a tasty treat at spunkstore.com. Thanks to Rolands! Local small business is the way to go. Go local, support your community. We go further, when we go together.
Matt and I wish you a wonderful holiday season! We hope your time with family and friends are joyous. The accomplishments that Allshouse Designs reached in 2017 will help 2018 be fun and exciting. From starting a YouTube channel to learning the ways of social media. We thank all of our past and current clients. We would not be here with out you.
To start 2018 with a bang we are offering 10% off our website management services.
Hell yeah! Spunks has given their pumpkins seeds with a kick, a new look and if you haven’t seen our first YouTube video. In it, Rolands mentions a little bit about his new Flavor “Sriracha Kick”. He describes it as somewhat sweet with a little smoke flavor leaving you with a taste of THAI! Hmmm, doesn’t that sounds good! Well you can now taste it for yourself by purchasing a verity pack of all five flavors at Spunkstore.com.
Now what does this news have to do with Allshouse Designs? Well let me tell you! We found, in our mail box. A free sample of all the Spunks flavors including “Sriracha Kick”! Of course Matt and I were ecstatic. We both agreed that Matt had to put together a YouTube video about it. Here you go!
Where to get these tasty seeds? It easy to order up the verity pack at spunkstore.com or you can go to these brick and mortar establishments. I can’t tell you how good these roasted pumpkin seeds are. I mean come on…. NO SHELLING REQUIRED! Just open the bag and poor them down. Here is a few testimonials that I grabbed off of amazon.com.

These are a delicious, healthy snack. My favorite is the original and my kids love the sea salt flavor. I love that these are simple, natural ingredients so I don’t have to worry about any extra add-ins. Well done Spunks!

After one of the owners gave me a sample bag to try on the Mukilteo ferry, I was hooked. Best tasting and healthiest snack around. And pound for pound better than a Clif Bar when you are on the go. Have tried them all at this point and all are great, but if I had to pick a favorite I’d go with the Sea Salt Kick! Outstanding product at a comparative bargain price!

Fabulous snack and so healthy! Great to pack along on a hike. I also used them in salads and on soup. It is so convenient to be able to order Spunks on Amazon. I will definitely get them again!
Allshouse Designs just completed a new website for Prince Legal. The website is using WIX as it’s CMS. The design is a simple, making it easy to navigate on desktop and mobile devices. We even added a little animation in the title for the desktop version. It was a lot of fun working with Daniel Prince to complete his project. Thanks Dan! I hope to continue to apply our services to build a strong online presence for your business.

Seattle Holistic Doula is a new client of ours and they offer support to expecting people and their partners throughout pregnancy, birth, the newborn period and beyond in a holistic way. Doulas are an important to the birthing process and in the nut shell can improve your plan for a natural birth with a midwife.
Anyways, Back to where Allshouse Designs comes in. I have just started working on the Seattle Holistic Doula’s website. The cool thing about our website management service is that we work with your current website. There is no need to change servers or URL ownership. Now every website is different and there may be a need to have the website live on our servers, but really we try to avoid it. Even if our servers are superfast. Once we have control over your web site we will make decisions to improve the site on a monthly basis. It is important that a website provides fresh content and is constantly being adjusted for new technology. With that said, we work with you on a monthly basis to improve your website’s ranking and feel. As far has Seattle Holistic Doula goes, we have just started to work with Jenne Alderks this month. I am very excited to improve her website and keep it updated as much as possible. Jenne has been a Doula for the past 5 years and has experienced more then 70 births. I highly recommend a Doula for your birthing experience.
We are proud to announce that River Valley Cheese is a new client of ours. We will be managing their website starting this month. Our plan is to complete a full upgrade of the current site (https://www.rivervalleycheese.com/) and manage the website’s SEO program. If you didn’t know already, River Valley Cheese holds classes on how to make cheese in a cool brick and mortar establishment located in Issaquah, Washington. We highly recommend signing up for classes and yes we have tasted the cheese!
If you are checking this post out way past it’s publish date. The image below is what the top half of the website looked liked before we started our website management service.
As we continue our adventure into building our business we have decided to experiment with video. It was a lot of fun and we really appreciate Rolands from Spunks to let us produce our first You-Tube video about their business. Basically, our focus was to give everyone a glimpse into the world of Spunks. Now this is our first video and really, we are looking forward to seeing what people think about it so that we can grow our expertise in what it takes to create a video for small business. As of today, we have just released it and now we are posting the video on serval social media platforms. The idea is to start a conversion of what creates a great video for small business. With that said, your constructive criticism is welcome on serval social media platforms like You-Tube, Twitter, Facebook, Google plus and in the comment section of this blog post. It would be fantastic if you like, comment and share our video with your friends.
