Logo Design For BiCoastal Beauty Concepts

BiCoastal Beauty Concepts LogoBsnTech Networks received an order a few weeks ago from Alissa, owner of BiCoastal Beauty Concepts.  She requested that we provide a full range of services for her – including two logo designs, website design, website hosting, and domain name management.

Our logo designer quickly made the two logos that she requested and she was so pleased with them, that she paid the additional amount for the logo upgrade to a “vector” format which can be used for any purpose – including sending the logo to a professional printer to be used on posters, clothing, and more.

Alissa wanted to use the logo shown here on her website so she quickly made the payment so it could be integrated into her website.  The other logo will be taken care of at a later date when she is ready to use it for printing.

We appreciate the business from Alissa!

Logo Design For American Society of Healthcare Professionals

American Society of Healthcare Professionals LogoKen contacted us last week on behalf of his organization, American Society of Healthcare Professionals.  He requested a full line of services from BsnTech – including logo design, web hosting, domain name management, and website design.

Ken’s primary goal was to get a logo designed right away although he also took care of the pre-payments for the website services as well.

In just a few days, our logo designer worked with Ken and made a logo that Ken was happy with.  It has now been completed and provided to Ken!

Website Design For Best Luxury Automobile

Best Luxury AutomobileYounus and Mohamed, both business partners in Best Luxury Automobile, contacted me early last week in need of a website makeover.  They had another individual create a website for their business about a month ago, but they were not happy with how the site looked and how it was presented.

Younus noted that the website needed to be fully completed and done within two weeks – for which I let them know it shouldn’t be a problem depending upon how quickly I get their feedback for the work.

With that, he paid the initial pre-payments over the phone to get us started immediately on the site.

Within a few hours, BsnTech already had a design setup and ready for their information.  We worked closely with Mohamed through many phone conversations to get the site perfected to his standard.

Upon completing the English side of the site, they also noted that they needed to have everything translated into Arabic.  Upon getting the translations, we put this other side to the site together.

In just under two weeks, the site was completely ready and polished.  The site just went live yesterday – about three days before their deadline.

We appreciate the business from Best Luxury Automobile and look forward to creating them another website in the near future!

Website Design For Verity Drug Screening

Verity Drug ScreeningBsnTech Networks was contacted by Peter, owner of Verity Drug Screening, about a month ago in regards to website services.  Unfortunately, he had a website with another provider but it was time for him to renewal the annual fee for keeping the site.  Their fee was very high and he was not going to pay it.  Worse yet, the web designer told him that he did not own the website and therefore could not maintain a copy of it.

Instead, he had us provide him a new website, web hosting, and domain name management services – all for about the same cost as the renewal fee.  After the site is designed, his renewal fee (which is just hosting and a domain name renwal) will be about 1/4 less than what he would have otherwise paid.

We worked with Peter to get the details and information for his website and worked as quick as he sent us the info.  Just today, he has approved of the website and it is now launched!

Thank you to Peter for the ability to help you with all of your website service needs, and you can rest assured that we will not gouge you on the cost for renewing your website (that you own)!

Website Assistance For Pythagoras Playground

Pythagoras PlaygroundBsnTech Networks was contacted by David, owner of Pythagoras Playground, late last week asking for some website help.

He setup a WordPress website at another hosting provider but needed some help doing several items to the site.  Upon gathering the details, he asked us to do the following:

  • Change the font and remove some text in the sub-header
  • Change the font of the entire website
  • Setup a slideshow on the home page
  • Install and configure eCommerce capabilities that integrate with PayPal
  • Setup and configure seven products

Upon obtaining the required info and logins to get started, we had all of his requested items done within two days.  The eCommerce configuration took a few days to fully get completed as we had to setup the tax and shipping rates.

We appreciate the business from David and hope to do more business with him!

Website Assistance For Beach Chimney Sweeps

Beach Chimney SweepsBsnTech Networks was contacted by Jerry late last week.  He originally had another website, but GoDaddy had completely deleted his website when he didn’t renew the hosting in a timely fashion.  Luckily, he had a copy of an older website that he had and was able to at least get a site running for his business.

However, the website needed to have some modifications and changes done to it – namely a change in the e-mail address on each page, a contact form that was not working, and a few other text changes.

BsnTech worked quickly and had all of his requested updates done within about 12 hours of receiving the login information to his hosting account.  We fully setup the programming for the contact form and tested it to ensure it was working properly.

We appreciate the business from Jerry!

Website Design and Services For Dakota-Steel, LLC

Dakota-Steel, LLCTim, the owner of Dakota-Steel, LLC, contacted us several months ago asking about website design and related services.

After a few months, he was ready to get started with his website.  Over the course of a couple of weeks, we got his website fully finished.  He provided us some examples of other websites in the same industry and requested that we setup his website similarly to those.

Tim has approved of the work that we did for him and plans on having us help him with advertising and marketing the site – either through pay per click (PPC) advertising or through our SEO services.

We appreciate the business from Tim!

Emergency Website Services Provided For Serenity Care Center

Serenity Care CenterTeresa contacted us this morning in need of some emergency assistance for their organization.  Upon calling her, she informed us that their IT individual that was a volunteer worker in their organization was leaving and was “disgruntled”.

In the communications with that individual, the person noted that the domain name, website, and e-mail accounts that they had would all be terminated since they had originally paid for them (and was tied to their personal accounts).

Because of this, Teresa needed some immediate assistance to take a backup copy of the website, get new e-mail accounts setup, new hosting, and a new domain name.

Immediately after speaking with Teresa, BsnTech Networks acted quickly to ensure we got a copy of the website before it was removed.

We then made some very slight modifications to the site to ensure the e-mail address was updated to their new e-mail accounts, got the domain name registered, setup the web hosting, and created their e-mail accounts.

Within less than an hour after our conversation, Teresa was 100% fully up and running with a completely new set of services that they own and now control themselves to ensure that this doesn’t happen to their organization again.

Thank you Serenity Care Center and Teresa for entrusting BsnTech Networks to get your emergency website services up and online!

eCommerce Website Design For Sports Collectors Galaxy

Sports Collectors GalaxyMonty had contacted us a few months back getting some pricing details to create an eCommerce store, Sports Collectors Galaxy.  He sells thousands of sports cards on eBay currently – but wanted to also branch out and make his own eCommerce web store to save the cost on some fees and to put his collection on.

Eventually, Monty notes that he will have millions of sports cards available for purchase on his website.

Once Monty was ready to get started, we got to work right away and had his website completed within just a week!  He chose us as his full-service website provider and also had us register and manage his domain name and provide the website hosting.

He also chose some additional functionality – such as the ability to import all of his product names, prices, and quantities from a “CSV” file.  With as many cards as Monty has, it would have been too time consuming to use the website system to create the products.  By using the import utility, he can import a large file that would take substantially less time to add.

We appreciate the business from Monty and he has already let us know that there will be at least two other individuals he knows that will want a website similar to his.  He just wanted to confirm that we were reputable and easy to work with before passing along his referrals to us.

Thank you for the opportunity to create an eCommerce web store for you and your business, Monty!

Over A Month Has Passed

Another long period without a garden post!  Amazing to see that the last time I posted was around Memorial Day.

In about a month and a half, the garden has completely transformed.  The weather this year has been very nice compared to other years.  There has been some nice days where the humidity was low and it was nice to be working outside.  We are also getting rain just about the perfect time – that way I don’t spend extra time watering the garden.

So far this year, I’ve watered the garden areas maybe five or less times.  The rain barrels continue to stay full.  When I use any water, it seems to be fully replenished within a day or so.

Last time I wrote, I was picking radishes and lettuce.  Well, the radishes and lettuce have already been pulled out.  Same with the Cascadia snap peas.  They were pulled out a few weeks back as they were deteriorating.  We got about a gallon-sized bag of peas from the garden this year.

Didn’t help that we went on vacation at about the peak of the peas maturing.  So when we returned, many of them were already past their prime.  Once the pea plant is able to mature some seeds, they will typically stop production.  That is why it is important to pick them before the seeds mature.

Onions are starting to be harvested.  About eight or so have been pulled thus far.  Look how big they are now!

Copra Onions

We have also harvested about half of the Ventura Celery.  Makes a nice treat with some ranch dressing.

What about the broccoli?  Well, it was another one of those things t hat I planted too much of.  I did get a few heads of broccoli cut upon our return from vacation.  Some of them were already flowering with yellow flowers – so they had to be thrown out.  But after they were cut, we had about a gallon bucket of broccoli.  Another tasty treat with some ranch dressing!  Over in the side garden, there are four more that need to be picked (along with two cauliflower).  Three of them are past their prime and just need pulled out.  You’ll also notice that the peas are all gone.

Broccoli Plants

There are two curds of cauliflower in the front garden that are doing very well.  These also need to be harvested.

Snow Crown Cauliflower

The back garden is an absolute mess.  We had a company come in last year to take care of our lawn to see what could be done.  Well, we didn’t hire them back this year and the weeds have been absolutely crazy!  The worst year ever for weeds!  So the back garden looks to be in very bad shape.  After I took this picture, I did go through and pull out some weeds – but definitely not all of them.  The Kennebec potatoes back here are still holding onto their footing, but they have also declined.

Kennebec Potatoes

The potatoes down by the road in the front yard are doing OK.  But they show the same kind of yellowing as those in the back garden.  Not too much longer and it will be time to start digging potatoes.  It just really seems this year that they matured faster.  Typically mid-August is when I harvest them in prior years.  But maybe they will hold out for another month.

Kennebec Potatoes

The grape arbor is looking very good this year.  The pavers under the vines got a make-over this year.  There were all kinds of weeds growing up through the pavers and the Zoysia grass was starting to encroach into the area.  So all of it was pulled out.  Two layers of weed barrier was put down (fabric and plastic) to provide double the protection.  A plastic edger was also put around the perimeter too.  Then the pavers were put back down with sand.

Grape Vines

In the front garden, the plants are doing very well.  My wife got out and picked most of the green beans last week – and we had some huge containers full of green beans!  It has been many years since we got a decent supply of green beans – all because the deer would get into the garden and eat them to the ground.  This year, I had to put up the old green snow fencing around the perimeter.  Still, it sags in some spots and the deer have been able to get their heads over and chew away.  What I don’t understand though – as you can see below – is that the green beans down the middle row look to have been completely eaten back too!  So maybe it isn’t the deer getting in but another animal.

The tomato plants are also doing good – but we have yet to have our first red tomato.

Front Garden

Finally – the peppers.  The peppers are not doing well this year.  They keep falling over and seem like they need extra support.  But, we have already picked our first pepper of the year – and it was partially red and partially green!  That is the fastest ripening pepper we’ve had yet.  Only three pepper plants remain out of the four that were planted.  In years past, I’ve put eight plants out – so this year it was cut back by half.

California Wonder Peppers

Well, until next time.  Might be another month but hopefully less!
