Earthsite Launches New Company Website

Sometimes we get so busy building other websites that time just slips away and it takes a while for us to re-design our own website.  Well, the time has come for us to announce our new and improved Earthsite website!

Our new website is designed in our new favorite platform: WordPress.  Plus we’ve taken our own advice and simplified.  As a service based business, the main feature of our website is our Web Design Portfolio.  We are proud of the hundreds of websites our team has created over the years and are happy to share them with you here.  In addition, our Client list has grown immensely.  Check it out!

First Month Online Revenues Far Exceed Cost of New Website

DollarTreeThere’s nothing like receiving positive testimonials from our clients.  When it involves a story that their new website brought in more money then it cost to build the website, we can’t help but jump for glee!  We recently launched a new website for Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary which included a custom build of an online registration form, something their old website did not have.  A month after we launched the Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary website, Michael Stusser (founder of Osmosis), sent us this testimonial:

“In the first month since going live revenues from the new online spa booking form were five times the cost of building the website.”

Now that’s something to celebrate, don’t you think?

Earthsite Celebrates Five Years of 100% Renewable Energy

logoWe are fortunate to live and work in a county that has worked very hard to promote sustainability in many ways.  One of the most recent successes was the launch of Marin Clean Energy. Marin Clean Energy (MCE), California’s first Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program, was founded in 2008 and began serving customers in 2010.  When we found out about MCE we immediately signed up and can proudly say we have been running our business on 100% renewable energy for 5 years.

MCE has grown over the past five years and has expanded beyond Marin County into Napa, Richmond, and some parts of the East Bay.  We are proud to be a part of this movement and helping us all reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
