In the web world, functionality and design go hand in hand to create highly successful websites. A stunning design loses its pizzazz when slow response time, broken images and poorly written code sinks in.
That's why Byte Productions partners with many marketing and design agencies to be their web and technology partner. Our content managed websites are built and supported by us and not only do we provide great customer service, we build a superior product that is optimized for a great user experience.
One of our latest partnership projects was building a new custom-designed website for luxury condominiums called the H Residence.
Our online registration system, byteEvents handled the Annual Bayshore Marathon's registration traffic with ease.
On Monday, December 1st, the Traverse City Track Club opened registration for their ever popular Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K happening on Saturday, May 23rd. The half marathon is always the first to fill up and just before 9am Monday, our registration system began seeing a giant boost in traffic.
Below is an image showing how many connections there were to the website and at what times. The connections maxed out at 2,400 around 9:02 am, two minutes after registration opened.
Our custom-designed websites are the perfect solution for law firms looking for a fully functional, one-of-a-kind website. Our team worked with Larry LaSusa, Principal Attorney at LaSusa Law Offices, PLC, to create a great design that complied with the brand standards of his existing print work.
After finalizing the design, our Content Developer, Sue worked one-on-one with Larry to port over his existing content from his old website as well as integrate new information for the resources page and create "searchable content" which helps website visitors find valuable information by being able to search by category.
Once the new website launched, Larry received some great feedback from his existing clients; “looks great”; “easy to navigate”; “impressive”.

Companies often spend thousands of marketing dollars branding themselves through web, print and other tools each year. Thinking big picture sometimes causes small and inexpensive opportunities to be overlooked, such as setting up domain-based email for you and your employees.
If you aren't familiar, domain-based email is simply having unique email accounts using your company's domain name, such as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many start-ups make the transition to business owner and bring along their personal email, which can be confusing or unprofessional. That's why setting up domain-based emails is so important. As your business and employees grow, the standard stays the same and email accounts like Info@youdomain.com or email@example.com can be directed to the right employee.
Lee Studio, located on 400 Cass Street in Downtown Traverse City, MI, is where you can find the books and fine art reproductions by Leslie Lee are available.
We recently launched a new website for Lee Studio which features the ecommerce ability to purchase Leslie's two books online (and more merchandise on the way!)
Her first book, Backcountry Ranger, The Diaries and Photographs of Norton Pearl in Glacier National Park 1910-1913 is the history of early Ranger, Norton Pearl, at Glacier National Park’s beginnings.
Leslie's newest book, is an innovative and inspiring fusion of architecture, photographs, poetry, and visionary philosophy called Sacred Space, Pine Hollow. Lee hopes the book will introduce the Pine Hollow property and organization to the world, and her poetry will inspire others to always strive for a better future.

We recently launched a new custom-designed, content managed website for Granco Clark, an aluminum extrusion industry supplier located in Belding, MI.
This project had us created two websites, one in English and one completely in Chinese. The Granco Clark China site will launch shortly!
The Granco Clark staff were an absolute pleasure to work with especially our main contact, Scott Biggs.
We love when we have satisfied customers and receive great feedback.
The Villa Marine Bar & Grill has been a staple in Frankfort, MI since the 1940's and also a favorite destination for many Michiganders.
When we ran into owner, Jerry Hendrix at a company outing a few months ago, he expressed his interested in updating his website since most of the information on the website, including specials, hours and images were out of date. It was almost impossible for him to get ahold of his website administrator, so we set up a plan to come to the rescue!
We were able to set the Villa Marine Bar & Grill up with a bytePages template website to keep costs down and incorporated the byteEditor Content Management System to give them the ability to control their own website content. This was massively important to them, seeing as customers often use the website as a guide to their menu, location and hours.
Got a sweet tooth for corporate branded goodies? There's a new business in town called Taste Bud Branding here to fill those cravings with deliciously tasteful gifts & giveaways.
Taste Bud Branding can take your logo, photos or any image and create quality branded snacks from BBQ sauce to trail mix. These guys have the right connections to make a product you not only want to display, but also one you want to eat!
Our friends at Idea Stream produced the web design and we built the website using our byteEditor Content Management System. We also integrated a custom ecommerce system, which has a lot of unique and fun features like the ability to search by category, price bestsellers and more.
By now, you have most likely heard about the internet bug, Heartbleed, which has impacted a large number of companies on the web. Heartbleed affected the OpenSSL framework used by many online businesses to privately send data to and from internet servers. The attack could then leak information from the server’s memory, specifically the private key that is used for a website's secure certificate, and prevent your website from being secured.
We want to assure you that Byte Productions has taken the proactive actions to insure the integrity of our client's websites during this breach in security. Above and beyond the required upgrades to our servers, we are also reissuing secure certificates for our client's websites. There is no charge associated with the reissue of the certificates, but it does involve an action on the client's part.
If you live in Northern Michigan, you may have noticed the use of .TC for local domains. Many companies decided to purchase these domains and use them to reference an easy way to remember "Traverse City". In reality, the .TC domain is the Internet country code for Turks and Caicos Islands.
In 2013 a major dispute arose between AdamsNames, who used to run the .TC registry, and Meridian, the company who currently runs the registry.
AdamsNames accused Meridian of attempting to hijack the registry, and is now warning the public against registering domain names with them. The dispute was documented on some domain name blogs in early 2013.
