Merchants Market Group Pairs Up With THAT Agency for New Website Design & Development

Posted at May 15, 2017 7:00:00 AM by Michelle Sternbauer | Share


West Palm Beach, FL - Local company, Merchants Market Group recently partnered up with West Palm Beach Digital Marketing Company to revamp their digital presence.  Recognizing an immediate need to refresh Merchants Market Group's branding, THAT Agency's first task was to design and develop a new website.

The website was developed on the open-source PHP platform, WordPress, and was customized utilizing numerous plugins, to create a custom website feel, without having to build the website from the ground up.  Additionally, the website needed to integrate with an existing 3rd party ordering system, allowing for certain pages of the website to be password protected; however allowing the user to not have to login to both systems separately.  THAT Agency was able to integrate the required functionality through an API integration.

Through the use of large background imagery, and bright colors, THAT Agency was able to impart an "island" feel to the website, while keeping it clean, modern and efficient.

To complete the project, THAT Agency incorporated their standard suite of search engine optimization onsite best practices.  These services included (but are not limited to): keyword and competitor research, meta title and description optimization, 301 redirects, XML and HTML sitemaps, and much more!
