After twenty-five years of running on-air, The production company wanted to extend the success of the show into the online world.

Working directly with the President of Nelson Davis Productions, we held regular meetings to discuss what was the best way to build an online fan base with our limited resource while Nelson focused on acquiring B2B projects. The solution was the redesigned website which eventually served as a source of information gateway to attract business prospects while educating the general public about entrepreneurship. Fresh useful contents were researched and posted regularly and most episodes of the “Making It! Minority Success Stories” were digitized and made available on the website. We hosted several interviews with entrepreneurs using Google Hangouts. We also created a series of podcasts demo to test the market. The cover graphic for this series of podcast demo was designed to reinforce Nelson Davis position as a small business authority and radio personality. We edited and enhanced the audio with Adobe Audition.

 

Result

 

Viewership and brand followers spiked up according to various analytics. And Nelson was able to increase his online presence significantly. However, as the evolving web began to lean heavily on social media especially as a source of news and for a sense of community, it seemed to be the right time for our website to evolve as well. In the latest iteration of the company website, it emphasized personal branding – Nelson Davis as the small business expert who offered consultation and corporate video services.
