A quick update – Websites on Board

Hey everyone how are we all doing?

Have you started to take your small farm website more seriously? Just wondering because as you do exactly that … you will get more traffic which means more influence and hopefully more influence.

Small Farm Websites just wanted to give you a quick update as to what we have been up to.

Small Farm websites has two new clients that it has been working with and wants to share that with you…

1.  Northridge Photogrpahy – One of the premier Calgary wedding photographers, and someone who specializes in using light and getting great photos.  Nate also does commercial photography and most importantly to all of us – equine photography.  Nate is brilliant with people and always finds a way to capture the best moments.  His website is northridgephoto.com and you can inquire there about his rates.

2.  The Jesus Muse – The Jesus muse is a Chrisitan Inspiration website that fosuces on getting great ideas out to people that need motivation, inspiration and spiritual muse.  Most importantly for us The Jesus Muse focuses a significant part of its energy on inspiration, faith and mental strength…so important for equestrian competitors, farmers and horse people alike.  So often we over look the mental aspect of what we are doing, and the spiritual aspect of that we are doing.  This page will help with that.  Small Farm websites is helping with design and SEO.  Check out their page Bible Verses on Faith

3.  Milestone Asset Management – These guys just came on board and are now part of the family.  We are really excited to be working with them and introduce them to the SFW community.  For more information please visit the projects page to read why…

A New Partner – Milestone Asset Management

We have a brand new partner at Small Farm Websites.  We have partnered with Milestone Asset Management in Calgary Alberta.  This company specializes in money management and specifically we would like to highlight a few areas …

  1. Retiring Abroad.  One of Milestones premier solutions is directed specifically at people who are looking to retire abroad.  They have build relationships with a number of solutions, people and companies to provide information into this area.  We know from our community here at SFW that retiring abroad is a hot topic…so we wanted to partner with Milestone for this reason.
    1. Article on retiring in the US
    2. Client Testimonies for retiring abroad
  2. Estate Planning.  Many of the SFWers are getting closer to retirement and as such thinking about leaving their ranch/farm to a loved one or kids.  Milestone specializes in helping this transaction happen with tax sheltering and money management skills.
  3. Business Succession Planning.   Another huge deal for baby boomers that are running farms is the plan for what happens when they are no longer running the farm.  The succession plan is a huge deal and these guys have what you need.

What Should I Call My New Page

Blazing Hearts Ranch :: Horse Boarding Calgary

So if you travel over to Blazing Hearts Ranch’s website on of the things that you will notice is the names of each of the pages…and the intentionality behind each of the names. Many people especially in this industry generally don’t take too much time to consider their page names. Usually they just call them whatever comes to mind first or use something descriptive.

Small Farm Websites is interested in helping you not only have a great web presence but get actual traction.  www.blazingheartsranch.ca is the main portal into BHR’s buisness which supports the ranch and keeps it in tip top shape.  Lets be honest we need finances to support the things that we want to do and when we have clients they want to see continual improvement and that their money is going into the upkeep and maintenance of the ranch.

When creating the page for outlining the horse board blazing hearts ranch was very intentional and strategic about what they called the page.  Google Keyword Planner was used to isolate certain keywords that where the highest searched keywords in that industry and then those keywords were used as the page titles.  So “Horse Boarding Calgary” is one of the highest searched keywords in calgary for horse boarding which is Blazing hearts Ranches main business.  So when creating the webpages they wanted to focus on this keyword.  Because of that they have had significat traffic and not only that, but the traffic has been highly targeted meaning that the people that are travelling to their website are actually looking for horse boarding in Calgary.  Smart right?
