Custom WordPress websites

What we do

We build custom WordPress websites for small business owners. We start development with Divi, Elegant Themes’ “flagship … visual page builder, and the most widely-used premium WordPress theme in the world according to stats from BuiltWith.com.

Why we do it

Divi ensures well-coded architecture that integrates smoothly with WordPress and with third-party functionality that includes the features most needed by business owners, including e-commerce, pricing tables and product showcases. At the client’s request, we also use premium, third-party themes.

How we do it

We work with clients to choose and purchase appropriate domain names, develop a strategic design with supporting templates and plugins, create original custom content, including text and visual elements, and maintain the site. Or we will train you or you staff and turn over the keys.

Content Creation

KeyWestWatch Media brings exceptional content creation expertise to our work. Four decades of research, writing, editing design and photography experience mean our clients get high-quality content for their websites and social media. Our content is fresh, original and customized for your business.

Project Management

What we do

Small businesses face significant challenges when confronted with one-time, transformative projects. They rarely have the staff or resources to complete the project internally. KeyWestWatch Media tackles short-term projects, ranging from staff training to the full research, development, oversight, integration and follow-up involved in launching a new business, product, branding campaign or relocation.

How we do it

We coordinate vendors and contractors, develop internal and external communications and assist with staff training. We will assess your business operations and map a plan for improving workflow, systems and customer service. We can take over the headaches of relocating your business — from arranging for the movers to re-establishing your computer networks and phone systems. And, if you need someone to answer the phones or water the plants when you’re on vacation, we’ll help make that happen, too. We ensure a smooth, timely, efficient project – while you tend to business.

Strategic marketing for small business

What we do

Today’s marketing environment demands nimble, multi-platform advertising, leave-behind collateral and an understanding of social media and digital advertising. KeyWestWatch Media works with business owners to develop online and in-print marketing strategies, including social media, to help improve visibility and foster customer relationships.

We start by researching and defining the client’s target audience, both existing and potential. We determine market competition and establish the client’s unique position within the market. Working together, we develop and implement comprehensive and adaptable marketing campaigns that support the client’s changing goals.

Why we do it

We believe in the power of integrated platforms — print, digital, events and marketing collateral. We believe our clients and their businesses succeed when they combine a strong product, exceptional customer service and consistent advertising and marketing of their products and their brands. Investing in consistent, ongoing branding is the foundation for business growth.

This is why we live in Key West. (OK, there ARE other reasons. I’m just whining.) A normal Tuesday evening traffic jam in DC. Will remember this the next time I complain about traffic on the island. 😂

We lived there for 3 years.....I don’t mind the Keys traffic at all

My wife goes there for work occasionally. She doesn’t like that traffic or the temperature swing. Riding around the Ubers on Duval on our bikes is our style of traffic.

Yep, no real reason to complain about traffic in our little paradise slice! 😁

Just , NO...... and a little side of ewwww!,

Yep. This is one of many reasons I’m glad I’m retired. That used to be me commuting from Arlington to DC.
