A New Approach to Website Design
Creating a results-driven marketing tool
Safety 1st Driving School
Safety 1st Driving School is a relatively new Orange County driving school. We designed their website in February 2012 and the goal right away was to rank for driving schools in Orange County (and the cities within). It was really important for them to be seen as an active website with Google, and we’ve been blogging for them ever since. Targeted location-specific pages also helped their rankings. Now, they are the TOP result when searching ‘drivers education orange county’ and ‘behind the wheel orange county.’
Like many of the businesses we work with, Safety 1st Driving School is a local business and knew the cities that their ideal clients are in. We built up content on their site for those specific cities, and now they are the TOP result when searching ‘behind the wheel irvine,’ ‘behind the wheel aliso viejo’, ‘behind the wheel laguna niguel,’ among others.
We built Southland Tool’s website over a year before we began our online marketing efforts. Over that year, they were already among the top results for many of their key phrases, due to being in a very niche market, as well as our on-page SEO work. Still, Southland Tool knew the importance of staying in front of their client base for repeat business. They have new products announced fairly often and they wanted to be sure to keep those great past clients informed. As such, the very first thing we did for Southland was an email newsletter, featuring new products and an announcement of their expansion. Right away we were notified that they made sales directly from the newsletter! We are now continuing on with new monthly content since Google rankings are never guaranteed to stay in place, and we want them to see Southland Tool as an active website, always growing as a resource.
EEE Doors is a sister company of Today’s Windows and Doors, whose website we have also built up. EEE Doors (Energy-Efficient Entry Doors) launched February 2013 and knew from the get-go that they wanted a complete marketing package. Upon the launch, we immediately started building up keyword-rich content. A major addition was their email newsletter which we designed and send out monthly after a strategic planning meeting. We meet with EEE Doors each month to review our efforts, analyze Google Analytics, and plan next steps. After only a few short months, they are already the TOP result for ‘fiberglass entry doors orange county,’ AND on the front page for ‘entry doors orange county.’
Today’s Windows & Doors
We’ve been working with Today’s Windows and Doors since March 2011. They are now the #2 result for their top keywords: “front door orange county,” “entry door orange county,” — even “doors orange county.” The first thing we did was go through and update all on-page content on their site, and made it SEO-friendly. Next, we added city-specific landing pages and added them with keyword-rich content. We always ensure that our landing pages are pages that you’d actually like a client to land on – not spammy pages that someone would just click away from right away. Our goal is always to add valuable content so that Google sees your site as a resource and rewards it with higher rankings. This was the case for Today’s Windows and Doors. In fact, it worked so well that they were able to open a new sister company, EEE Doors. And they’ve trusted us to get that company up and running as well.
Sam, Tyree, and the rest of the gang at Website Muscle were great during the entire process of building our firm’s site. Sam and Tyree met with us before they started, listened to our thoughts and ideas, and implemented those ideas in the site. We were given time to review the site before it was published, and the changes we requested were made quickly. Now several weeks after our site has been published, Sam still responds instantly to our requests and tweaks of the site. They truly involve the client in all aspects of the project, and they are about creating a relationship as well as a website.
Coast Motor Werk
Coast Motor Werk came to us as the highest-rated BMW and Mini repair shop in OC. They already had a great company culture, they had identified their buyer personas and were expanding like crazy. What they needed was a new website design and a team devoted to building their online presence. We are the team promoting their brand every month, building up their website’s blog and landing pages, and strategizing new ways to meet their marketing goals.
The New Port Theater
Sam & the Website Muscle team have been extremely helpful for our business. We had a complicated request, but Sam took the time to meet with us, make revisions as needed, and the end product exceeded our expectations. Their team is so friendly and accommodating. We have made a few changes since the original design, and they have been most helpful. I would highly recommend Website Muscle.
Beyond The Grind
Like us, Beyond the Grind is a family-run company who prides themselves on being very accessible to their customers. One thing that was missing from that equation was a bright, friendly website that fully conveys who they are and how they can help.
We were so excited to work with Beyond the Grind since they partner with some of our favorite local coffee shops. They handle it all: supplies, equipment, even training events and consultation that gets those baristas serving the perfect cup, every time. We love how the site turned out and are so happy they do too.
I could not be happier with how my site turned out with Website Muscle! They were very professional and executed my idea perfectly. Starting my own business was a big adventure in itself and I was so happy with being able to show off my website to new clients!
Thanks again Website Muscle! Would recommend them to anyone looking to update their current site or someone like me that had to start from scratch!

Eat Chow Restaurant
If you haven’t been to Eat Chow yet, please go immediately (you can thank us later). Serving up amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner, Eat Chow is one our favorite Costa Mesa restaurants (and now with a second location in Newport Beach). Their team is a blast to work with and they knew exactly what they were looking for in a new website.
We really wanted to highlight their unique locations and of course, the food. With a menu that changes quite often (as they tend to highlight local, seasonal ingredients), it was also important that the site was easy to update as well.
The result is a super-clean, modern, cool website that we believe showcases what Eat Chow is all about.
Being in the machining industry, Hunt Enterprises had bigger fish to fry for a long time before they considered a website upgrade. They knew their old site was outdated and didn’t work as they wished it did, and so when we met, it was the perfect time to get a fresh new look and a website that would work on any device.
Hunt Enterprises is innovative, versatile and always competitively priced. They are very experienced in delivering parts to the Electronics and General Commercial industries and so you can always count on quality, on-time delivery and diversity of products. It is local businesses like these that make us proud to do what we do.
I was referred to Sam and I was very happy with what I got for the price. Our company, with the price of a full page ad in the weekend paper, I now show up on the first page of Google for what I think I should show up for. He takes his time doing it but long after the web page was up he is still making changes to the site at no charge. He has not over or under sold us any thing and we are using him to start a second site. I would use Sam again and in fact, I am.
Intrinpsych Woman is a New York-based psychological health and wellness center led by Camilla E. Mager, Psy.D. Years ago, we had worked with Camilla on her own counseling website, www.camillamager.com, and since we kept in touch throughout that time, we were very pleased to work with her again on her new big venture.
This project included a brand new website, including content strategy and writing, as well as online marketing. We were able to set up profiles on all major social media and directory listings, create initial posts, and write location-based landing pages. Now Camilla is trained and ready to take the reigns in building her online presence!
ARQ is a global leader in wireless solutions, and our goal was to achieve very specific messaging and imagery to position them as that leader.

Cory, Sam and the entire crew at Website Muscle take service to another level. The website I had was okay for a new business, but at 6 months operating we knew it was time to step it up. I can’t believe the difference between what we had and what we have now!!! The best part (aside from the fact we are now proud to show our customers our website) is that our bounce rate went down dramatically – by 30% -and our closing ratio from online leads increased. If you need a website, this is the company to do business with!

Trio Supply Chain Solutions
Sam and his team are professional, talented, and provide excellent customer service. If you are a small company looking for a clean professional web presence and you want a one stop shop to help you build the site you want, these are the people to work with.
The site has been up for 5 months now, I have contacted Website Muscle several times for minor tweeks, or even a possible addition of an extra page. Sam has always helped right away, and provides most of the help as a point of service only charging if I come to him with something very time consuming. I can not recommend someone more strongly.

Cannon & Nelms
Two decades into a successful trial practice, Cannon and Nelms decided to honor an old friend and client’s request to “get a website.” After agreeing to do so, we realized that we didn’t know where or how to get started on this project. We turned to Yelp and found Website Muscle and we are very glad we did. Sam and Kate Nelson are professional, talented and a real pleasure to work with. They had our website up and running in a week and they did it for the price they quoted. We are very pleased with the website and we can’t say enough good things about Sam and Kate. They exceeded all of our expectations and they are a pleasure to work with before and after they get your website up and running. If you take your business elsewhere, you will have made a mistake. Sam and Kate are the best and we couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Cannon & Nelms
Sam & Kate at Website Muscle were a constant pleasure to work with and provided the value, responsiveness and quality that we needed to get our company website updated and greatly improved. Much to my surprise, Sam came to our office to meet with and interview our key staff, then wrote a client-specific proposal that met our cost, schedule and complex content needs.
This was the second website that Website Muscle designed for us and they’re on the team for our future work. They came highly recommended to us and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for value, speed and quality.

The Hunt Foundation
George E. Gelb, Attorney at Law in Jupiter, Florida, was looking for a modern website that would showcase his 30+ years of expertise in his field, but more importantly would outrank his competitors in Google searches. George Gelb also knew from the start that monthly marketing was a priority for him. To that end, we have written (and continue to write) a good deal of informative, keyword-rich content that will provide education to his potential clients and establish him as an authority on the subject matter, but also provides on-site SEO that will help Jupiter Divorce rank in Google searches.
