Kothrade wanted to set up a basic marketing website to provide more information about their company's services and capabilities to potential clients. I worked with the owner to understand the kind of information clients would be interested in to understand the company's work experience. I also coached the client on how to connect with general contractors and building associations to help develop online linkages to their site through their relationships with these organizations.

The tight building market at the time affected Kothrade's business, leading them to pull back on some of the online marketing efforts we discussed as I developed their website. The company recently launched a new site.
