Describe your website.
First, I talk about what I call The Moment. This is something I've seen many times--it's when a producer suddenly realizes, "I'm very good at what I do," and they can trust Remote West to handle the mix.
Next, I describe the Remote West flagship, the Little Red Truck, an industry leader audio truck.
Then I have some selected news of interesting things the company is doing, and the fascinating people I get to work with.
I think it's important for prospective clients to know the "why" of how passionate I am about mixing and music, so I have a page that gives a short description of my history with a few pictures.
Finally I have a short contact sheet with some rate information on it.
Who is the target audience for your website?
I want television and music producers and artists who might never have considered using a full-service audio company to come to the site. I want people with tight or non-existent budgets to call me first, and we'll figure out a way to get what they need. I want artists who have a great vision but might not have much money. I want to make great music with them.
What is the advantage of your website over others?
The Remote West Company is after all a service company. The website points out the strengths of the people behind the gear and not just the gear itself.
Tell us a story about this website.
The new website has only been up for a few days, so I haven't seen any comments about it versus the old one--but I like it a lot better!
Why did you use this Sandvox design?
Hydrogen is clean, simple, flexible, and gives the sense of unhurried competency clients desire in an overheated, packed-with-posers industry,
What techniques did you use to build this website?
I never even knew about Google Webmaster Tools until I started using Sandvox. Sandvox makes it easy and productive for me to take a 20 or 30 minute slice of my day and dedicate it to improving the site and site traffic.
