Measurement of Client Goal Success:

1. Optimize web presence to drive business?
YES: I selected Wix.com as  the new webpage host for Fit Chick Fitness. The software of Wix is optimal for business owners with minimal website backend/coding experience, focusing on the What You See is What You Get (WYSIWYG) presentation of webpage updating. The coding is built-in, and step-by-step updates are provided within Wix as necessary.

2. Support online shopping?
YES: Integration with PayPal for one-click purchasing and online billing.

3. Integrate with existing online presence of Incite Livermore?
YES: Linked seamlessly to Incite Livermore’s Facebook Page, Twitter account, and business contact information.

4. Revitalize image of Fit Chick Fitness to match the high-energy boot camp program offered?
YES: New website management host enables WYSIWYG image editing, access to regularly updated royalty-free stock photos, pre-designed and customizable theme templates and color schemes.

5. Simplify day-to-day website maintenance for business owners?
YES: Wix offers basic website management for free. Customers can add-on services as needed, an a la carte model to replace the previous comprehensive website management package. This eliminates unnecessary overly technical features and functions and saves the business money by cutting excess fees for unused services.
