Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour Gets An Upgrade

We love giving our clients a new look to go with their high-performance sites.

The most recent recipient of a brand new look is Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour.

Here's what we have accomplished with the Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour site:

Have you ever heard someone say "the picture doesn't do it justice" when talking about their Grand Canyon pics? Well, it's true, there's nothing like being there as anyone who has visited the Grand Canyon can tell you.

So how do you best depict the grandeur and the massive vistas of Grand Canyon on the web?

Step 1: Use REALLY BIG images. Fill the viewer's screen with as much Canyon beauty as you can fit. (Oh, and still make the site fast as lightning.)

Of course, looking good and performing well are important. But content is important as well. That's why we fill the site regularly with articles and pages that will have the Grand Canyon traveller up to speed on myriad topics and things to know before they take a heli tour.

Speed, ease of use, chock full of excellent information about Grand Canyon, and optimized to dazzle visitors and search engines alike. That's how we roll at Brick Road!

Key Factors In Designing A Site That Performs 

  • The faster the better for search and visitors
  • Elegant user interface - easy to use
  • Perfectly mobile for all devices
  • Chock full of relevant information about the Grand Canyon and things to do in and around the area (not just helicopter tours)
  • Organized the way Google loves to see (and rank) websites
  • Great links and testimonials showing social proof from past customers and sites around the web

The best way to experience it is to surf it! Check out Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour for yourself and, hey, maybe you'll be flying over the greatest canyon on Earth yourself one day!

Brick Road Welcomes Key Transmission and Gears To The Team

Check out Key Transmission and Gears' new site by Brick Road Media!  Key Transmission serves the Denver metro area, servicing all makes and models with a special love for European model cars and trucks.

From our own experience, we know how hard it is to find a transmission shop that "gets" the more complicated transmissions.  Jeff, owner and operator of Key Transmission, seems to thrive in the challenging environment that late model cars and trucks present.

The Most Fun We’ve Had Building Local Business Website

J&J Winery and Big Dawg Brewhaus have a brand new home on the web.  J&J is a premiere Indiana winery and the only combination winery and craft brewery in Indiana.

The reason the project has been so fun is we were allowed a lot of creative freedom and were encouraged to let loose on the site for a look and feel that fits what J&J is all about.

J&J Winery Front Page

We were able to add some cool features with their event calendar and reservations due to some very neat new plugins for WordPress which allowed us to incorporate them nicely into the design.

Function and form together:

Another atypical aspect of this build was adding a business-within-a-business page for the Big Dawg Brewhaus.  The brewery got to have its own design on its page (click image to visit):

For larger re-design projects like this, there are a lot of moving parts.  And when you get to the marketing and visibility campaign, it gets to be even more fun.  When a local business has a rich product line like J&J, the job of marketing is, overall, a lot easier because we have so much to talk about and promote.

J&J has award-winning wines (see video), for instance, which makes social and search marketing easier.  They do all kinds of events throughout the year including weddings, wine tastings, beer tastings, fundraisers, live music, you name it.  Again, all that activity makes for a fun, active marketing campaign, especially through their social networks.

Then, add an award-winning Indiana micro brewery with "buzz" coming in from all over the Midwest about the quality and care that goes into their brews.  The events and announcements that are generated in a year just from the brewery alone make for additional points of engagement with the J&J Winery subscribers and social fan base.

Last but not least is their wood-fired pizza.  From my perspective, having "specialized" in trying any and all wood oven pizzas whenever I have a chance all over the country, J&J Winery pizzas are world-class.

Together, the highlights of this business form a tsunami of good times, great tastes, and beautiful location.

We invite you to check out the site!
