Allshouse Designs and the Race Car

The Race Car with new door panel

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 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 Thanks to Rolands! Local small business is the way to go.  Go local, support your community. We go further, when we go together.

Increase your online presence

After a few years of research and experimenting. We have finally created a service that will increase your online presence for your business in 72 hours.

Our new service takes a four prong approach to increasing the awareness of your business. This is not a one shot type of service. The main prong is being able to manage directory listings on 48 different high domain authority websites. This will increase your online presence in 72 hours. Two of the prongs will monitor your keyword rankings and your reputation on social media and or review sites. These two prongs will help keep your digital marketing stragity in check and will determine your next moves for your marketing dollars. The fourth prong is review generation. A very necessary tool that will increase the ability to collect reviews and it creates a funnel for your client to review your business on serval high end review sites.

This is what the service in tells:

  • Listings / Submissions (48 Directories )

We continue to strive for an excellent customer service experience for our clients. We have been utilizing a few of these types of services for years though businesses that I will not name. They are really great for small business. However the companies that we worked with did not really communicate with us. That is why we have an option to send you weekly or monthly emails about what our service is doing for you. These tools are powerful and will guide your business on the right digital marketing path.
