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 the Online Presence for your Business

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 )
  • Duplicate Removal post confirming the duplicate listings
  • Review Generation: Review Requests + Funnel Happy Customers to Write Reviews
  • Review Monitoring: 18+ Review Sites
  • Social Media Activity Monitoring: Facebook, Google+ & FourSquare

  • Reporting & Notifications

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.

See how your business shows up on our 48 recommend business listings. Our scan tool is easy and you’ll have the results quickly.

Our YouTube Race Car Adventure Continues…

The Race Car Allshouse Designs

We have just released our latest YouTube Video. This will be our 24th video and we have come a long way. It is hilarious to look at our first video and compare it to video number 24. We have learned a whole lot and continue to research on what makes an entertaining video. We will continue to improve and try our best to bring value.

 The one concept that has been the same is our priorities for our YouTube channel.  Which what we found through research is the most important concept to follow. With that said, here are the list that we have put together.

  • Create awareness of our brand “Allshouse Designs”.
  • Execute our Inbound Marketing Stragity.
  •  Educate the public about our experience and our knowledge.
  • Communicate our values.
  • Advertise our services.

With these 5 priorities in play it helps us determine our next steps. As far as the quality of our videos. We really have a long way to go, but when we get there it is going to be very rewarding. The really cool thing is that we have everything documented. It is fun to think that everyone can look at our channel and start to see our progress. That is what we look at to see what we need to learn and what to tweak. We really thank our current audience and hope that they continue to support us through our journey.

Here is a little glimpse into our latest video. Now we did film around 5 videos at the same time. We experienced horrible lighting and sound issues. We fixed the audio that alone is a great fix. Nothing like having an echo in your videos. We purchased high quality microphones. If you want to know which ones we are using for our latest video you can ask us by commenting below. Now on to the lighting.  After filming in front of a green screen for majority of our videos. We decided to can the entire green screen concept. We just felt that we just could not get the lighting right. In video number 24, episode 3 of the Race Car series. We are using natural light with studio lights. To film it we used two different cameras at two different angles. When you watch the video. The crisper picture with everything in focus is filmed with the Samsung cell phone camera and the warmer picture with the background slightly out of focus is the DSLR camera. In nut shell we are trying to find what we like better.

The last mention is what we have show cased in the video. Matt talks about the feel of the video with out the green screen, a little blurb about our new service and of course the progress of the race car. I hope you enjoy and like what Matt says, “let us know what you think?”

Business man pressing into the Twitter social network

If you learn how to use all the social media platforms out there, then your business can improve dramatically. Allshouse Designs has just started to really use the Twitter platform. With that said, today’s blog post is going to put a giant of the social media world under the spotlight; Twitter. Mainly, we’ll be looking to answer the question; what are the benefits of Twitter for business?

Improved Customer Service

Twitter is a brilliant platform as it provides companies with a new means of customer service. A business can use Twitter to respond to customer complaints and open up a dialogue with people from around the world. If you tweet about a product from your business profile, customers may respond with questions. You can then reply to them instantly, solving any queries in not time at all. Also, the beauty of Twitter is that you can search for keywords relating to your business – such as your company name – and find other people’s tweets. So, you could search for these keywords, find people tweeting about you, and interact with them. This is a great way of finding people with issues and solving them instantly.

Boosts Web Traffic and Sales

This social media platform is great for directing people towards your website and giving your sales a boost. You can use Twitter to reveal new products to all your followers, with a link to the product on your website. If you don’t sell things online, you can use a link to a page on your site that shows your business location. This will tell people where they can find you to purchase your products. Plus, Twitter uses hashtags which allow you to tag posts with keywords that others can search for. As a result, people that don’t follow you can still see your posts and click on the links to your website. Web traffic increases, which has a positive effect on sales.

Helps You Keep Up with Trends

Twitter is the place to be if you want to stay up to date with all the current trends in your industry. When certain things are spoken about a lot, they start to trend on Twitter. What’s more, you can decide what you see as trending by changing the settings, so only relevant things appear. This means you’ll never miss a beat in your industry, and can keep up with all the current trends. As a consequence, you can use the trends to give your business a big boost and ensure you never fall behind the competition.

Strengthens Your Brand Image

We’ve already mentioned how Twitter is a great way to communicate with customers and provide a better service. Well, in doing so, it also helps you strengthen your brand image. Twitter is all about sharing information, and the info you share reflects your image and values. Clever business owners use Twitter to push forth their values and help connect with new customers that identify with their brand.

Spunks! Pumpkin Seeds with a Kick!

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

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 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

5.0 out of 5 stars  Yum!

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars  Great Product!

on July 26, 2017
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars  Delicious!

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!
