On BlessThisMessPlease.com, blogger Melissa Griffiths shares her deep knowledge of wholesome cooking and living close to nature. In 2016 she built a hobby farm complete with a custom home, gardens, orchards and more. She needed a website that could showcase both her recipes and her lifestyle without sacrificing user experience or speed.
Digital Strategy & SEO: We began by conducting a keyword analysis to discover high volume keywords that were relevant to Melissa’s blog and that she could rank for by producing high-quality content. The results of our research were translated into an ongoing digital strategy engagement that has resulted in tremendous growth for her blog.
Website Design & Programming: Bless This Mess features a custom design that includes functionality such as the ability for readers to save their favorite recipes, enhanced search and category archives that encourage people to dig deeper into her content. It also includes an e-commerce shop, filterable recipe index and an Active Campaign integration that allows users to sign up for her newsletter when they create a membership account.
Working with Ari has been one of my favorite and most power-packed moves that I’ve made for my business. We’ve worked together on planning strategic content, SEO, getting major site changes made and it’s made all the difference. She’s extremely knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, and quick to brainstorm and offer suggestions. On top of all this, the site that she built me is well organized and so fast. I plan on working with her for as long as I can, it just makes sense.
