Audio, Video, and Article Content Portal

Websuasion's president, J. Ryan Williams, first developed the site in 1997, maintaining its codebase and deployment in one form or another ever since. The site has been revamped twice – once in 2009 and most recently in 2016.

The most recent update included a new responsive website design and a rich API to help facilitate the monetization of their over 4,000 audio and video assets. This new application structure will allow the organization to grow and introduce mobile apps, content distribution, and numerous pay-per-download features.

Affiliate Download

The weekly Day1 radio program is distributed to over 200 affiliate stations. The majority download the program through FTP and RSS feed. The Affiliate portal allows Day1 staff to upload different version of the program along with notes. Affiliate stations can then download the upcoming show each week.

Logo Design

The previous Day1 logo was designed many years ago and utilized drop-shadows and gradients which made it look a little dated. We updated it to a more modern, flat design that works with multiple web and print implementations.

They Stood Out Because Of Their Expertise And Understanding Of Our Needs

Their efforts improved the flexibility and efficiency of the portal project by removing thousands of lines of code, and their web development has bolstered the company’s public image. They stood out because of their expertise and understanding of our needs and really seemed like a good fit. After they had been doing website design for a year or two, we tapped their resources for the development of the merchant portal, because it was easier than introducing a whole new partner to our business model. From a marketing standpoint, their work has been hugely beneficial to our public image and has expanded our reach for potential partnerships and future business. On the development of the merchant portal, their work this year eliminated several thousand lines of code, which will enable new features and functionality to be added much more efficiently. Websuasion is very responsive, easy to work with, and is typically on top of any tasks we need within the timelines we provide. We see Websuasion more as a partner than a vendor because they consistently provide ideas and suggestions to improve our processes and products, rather than simply taking our specifications verbatim and churning out code.
