Working with local organizations who do so much good in our area is always a rewarding experience here at REACH Maine Marketing. One of our goals for Hospice Volunteers was to update their existing website and give them an easy to maintain, clean site where they could keep both clients and the public educated about the important work they do.
From patient care to grief support groups, Hospice offers our community an invaluable service at some of our darkest times. REACH Maine Marketing is happy that we could help them in some way make a difference.
H&H Marine gets a new look!
The REACH team has given H&H Marine’s website a fresh new look. The new site offers detailed specs and pricing for their commercial fishing boats in table form and now includes videos throughout. A home page video highlights several of their boats on the water on blue sky days, a video on the H&H Advantage page shows how one of their boats performs on a stormy day. We’ve even included a time lapse video showing some of the H&H Marine crew painting a boat that was being refurbished. Be sure to check out the Recent Launchings for additional boat videos.
Navigate the new site today!
When Ashley and Chris visited us in August, Emery’s Cottages website was a bit incomplete and very slow. The REACH Team has made the site load three times faster!
The new site offers About Us, Contact and FAQ pages as well as a pleasing Our Cottages landing page. Users can now view cottages sorted by No Kitchen, Kitchenette and Full Kitchen categories which can determine the length of their stay.
We also trimmed the home page content to improve the scroll experience and ensure that the user was able to navigate easier. This meant eliminating content that was not essential to the promotion of the cottages.
THE OLD HOME PAGE AT A GLANCE:
THE OLD SINGLE COTTAGE PAGE AT A GLANCE:
This website was a lot of fun to work on and we are pleased with the outcome. Be sure to check it out for yourself!
THE NEW HOME PAGE AT A GLANCE:
The individual cottage pages have been improved as well. These pages now offer continuity when viewing interior images as well as a pop up map to show where that particular cottage is located on the property. Icons show amenities specific to that cottage at a glance.
The BOOK NOW button jumps you down to the bottom of the page where users can check the availability of the cottage for their specified dates. A new call to action prompts users to check all cottages if this particular cottage is not available for their preferred dates.

The Island Employee Coop website has a new look!
Recently members of the Island Employee Coop met with REACH Maine Marketing to improve their website.
The REACH team came up with a new look and feel for the IEC website as well as a way to offer more to the online user. The site now shows career opportunities and a way to apply for positions online, a new IEC in the Community blog and an email sign up so customers can receive the latest sales fliers by email.
The new IEC BUSINESS pages offer a fun new way to explore the services and products offered in a tab format. Prior to the update these were displayed in list form.
The bottom of each business page offers a look inside the business as well as a map with it’s location.
Local writer Roberta Kuriloff had a website centered around her first book. She wanted to rework her website so that it could promote her as a writer, showcase and serve to market all of her work as well as allow her to share her thoughts in a blog.
The REACH Maine Marketing team designed a new look for the site with a similar color scheme that was centered around Roberta herself, not a specific book or piece of writing. The new site contains social media links and share features, email sign up, a photo gallery and her Thinking Aloud Blog.

When the school Director, Alexandra Wlodkowski, contacted REACH to add information about their move to a new location, we asked if it might be a good time to consider a complete website update and redesign. Alexandra enthusiastically agreed and scheduled an appointment to meet with REACH to talk about a new website with contemporary, look and feel. We agreed to develop a site with colors from nature showcasing beautiful Montessori learning materials.
Twelve business days later, Dirigo Montessori School, has a new website. “A big thank you goes to the team at REACH Maine Marketing who did stellar job synthesizing information from three sources including the original site, my blog, and wiki page,” said Alexandra Wlodkowski.
You’re welcome, Alexandra. Our pleasure.
Some websites are in need of face lift. Others are ready for a complete overhaul.
Such was the case for REACH client, Harold MacQuinn, Inc., General Contractors. As happens with many small businesses, an employee volunteered to figure out how to make a better-than-nothing website several years ago. Later, the employee left the company and since then, no one has known how to add or update the content.
Rhonda and Galya knew it was time to update HMI’s website and were considering working with a developer outside of Hancock County but decided to talk to a local provider before starting their project. We met with HMI in the middle of May, developed a proposal that met their needs, started their project on June 7th and launched their new site 20 days later. Thank you for all of your hard work and attention to detail. We never expected to have the site this fast. You guys ROCK!, said Rhonda Carter, HMI Controller.
We’re excited that Harold MacQuinn, Inc. has joined our growing list of clients and are pleased to present their new website design:
