We love to talk about our great customers and products, but not often do we boast about how AMAZING our team is. Each month in 2015, we will highlight a very important member of our team. Starting with....
We can honestly say that Sue has a hand in almost every project that comes through our doors. From content development to design to training, she has a vast skill set that makes her an incredible asset to the Byte Productions team.
As 2014 comes to an end, we (like many other businesses) are able to reflect on our company as a whole and the direction we would like to take for the next year.
It's been quite an amazing year with many highlights which include, but are not limited to participating in the Traverse City Chamber's Small Business Awards, handling over 2400 registrations in 19 minutes for the Bayshore Marathon, adding a great Developer, Rob Vezina to the team, volunteering at the VASA ski race and overall producing great work for multiple projects.
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.
