Happy October!

We’re excited to move into the fall season this year, and look forward to all that October has in store for Melinda McCaw Media. Right now, we’re loving the vibrant fall colors around the Grand Valley, and hope you are all enjoying the season just as much as we are. We’ve been turning over some really neat websites these past few months, and can’t wait to kick off the new season as we embark on new opportunities!

Projects You May Have Missed

mcwfc-largeMelinda McCaw Media launched some new websites this summer that you may have missed out on! You may recall our last newsletter, in which we had just taken on Mesa County Workforce Center as a client. The whole process was a great success, and we really enjoyed working with the MCWFC team and their diligent staff. We are proud to be involved with this local organization as they continue to provide employment opportunities to the people of Mesa County. The website is a great resource for all ages, and allows users to search for local jobs, sign up for MCWFC classes, and view upcoming employment events. The site is live and can be viewed by clicking here.

This site gives locals and visitors a great resource for events, guides, restaurants, hotels, and cycling clinics around the western slope of Colorado. Whether you enjoy road cycling or mountain biking, there are plenty of cycling opportunities here on the western slope. We encourage you to visit the site and plan your next adventure!

grb-largeWe would also like to introduce our most recent website launch for the Gunnison River Basin. We are really excited about the outcome of this site. It is not only graphically appealing, clean and modern, but it’s very educational! The Gunnison River Basin needed such a site so they could provide information to their constituents, as well as spread awareness to the public about water news, opportunities and issues in the Gunnison Basin. We’re also happy to be involved in the Gunnison River Basin’s overall marketing process as they begin their online presence. To view the site and learn more about the Gunnison Basin, click here.

Tip of the Month

The amount of time your website loads is very important to your business. Your website page speed affects revenue. Did you know that 47% of shoppers on the web expect a page load time of 2 seconds or less? And if the page takes longer than 3 seconds to load 40% of users will leave the site. These are just a few of the many interesting facts about page speed and how it affects your business.

So how do you find out how long your website takes to load? Well there’s an easy answer to this question. Simply navigate to  https://gtmetrix.com/, enter your website url and click the Analyze button.
