This project had a logo and color choices already made so we were tasked with laying out the site and finding fonts that fit the style of the client. The owner Charlie had a website that had been hacked and was unrecoverable as a result therefore he wanted a solution that was easier to use and preferably less hackable. We did utilize the main colors on the logo but we also found colors that were in the same family but lighter using Paletton.com. This helped us lighten up some of the bolder colors on the logo. The website had been down for over a year so there was virtually no SEO presense. Which meant they had little to no online leads being generated. We needed to build credibility and trust in the site so we wanted to include testimonials to bolster the trust for the practice. Online scheduling was a requirement to integrate into the internal practice management software.
The big thing for colors is we wanted to avoid using red much it isn't a good color to generally use in websites but definitely not for medical sites. The logo included red so we couldn't ignore it but we wanted to down play it. The main color we used was blue and light blue. The font choices were a serif font for the body "EB Garamond" and a sans-serif font for the heading was "Avenir". We used SVG background images to give the site some different flare. Animations were created on scroll down to draw attention to different elements of the website without being overly distracting. We researched relevant keywords including long tail keywords because competition is fierce in Tampa. We optimized the individual pages for these keywords and included schema.org and JSON-LD markup along with HTML5 to guide search engines.
The coding and software skills used by Colorado SEO Design to make this project take off included:
- Schema.org markup
