We offer a variety of services including Search Engine Optimization which is commonly known as “SEO“. Part of that includes incorporating content marketing in an online marketing strategy to better improve search engine results. We recently read a comprehensive guide to content marketing and SEO by Clucth.co, called The Complete Guide to Content Marketing for SEO.
Aloha and Hauʻoli Makahiki Hou! The team at Hilo Web Design would like to let you know that we have MOVED! AGAIN!
One of the many services we provide at Hilo Web Design is setting up and helping maintain an Online Shopping Cart – for that we use WooCommerce. WooCommerce uses extensions (plug-ins) to add features such as payment gateways (accepting VISA, Mastercard, etc.), adding USPS shipping information, and product add-ons.
We have told you in the past about the difference between using an SSL Certification versus using a payment method like PayPal and the costs and issues assoicated with both. A NEW exetnsion has arrived that is used with those sites wtih and SSL Certification and is FREE! STRIPE: Accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club cards directly on your store with the Stripe payment gateway for WooCommerce. The only thing that this system requires is a valid SSL certificate. This ensures your customer credit card details are safe! This plugin also uses Stripe JS to tokenize credit card numbers to make payments keeping card data secure. Stripe now works with refunds in WooCommerce 2.2+.

We have officially moved back in to the downtown Hilo area! We are excited to be back in the downtown Hilo community and look forward to welcoming our clients (old AND new) to this newly renovated location above Extreme Exposure and Aloha Grown in the heart of downtown Hilo!
To build professional looking websites to meet our client’s objectives, one of the solutions we provide are custom WordPress (CMS) websites. Through this popular use of WordPress, we always make sure that our websites are safe and secure for our clients. Just recently, we were made aware (via the security blog Sucuri) of a serious vulnerability in a few popular WordPress plugins.
We recently received two awards from the Internet Marketing Assocition for their IMPACT14 Conference. We were chosen as a Leader in Website Aesthetics and Social Media Campaigns. Weʻd like to thank the IMA for honoring us with this award!
We are experiencing a lot of change at A.S. Designs & Services lately! Back in January we told you about our move to a new location out of our Downtown Hilo location to a bigger office and have had nothing but positive feedback from not only our clients but our staff! First of all, Taryn Fowler, a long-time employee and friend will be moving on to pursue a new career and will be greatly missed! We are also happy to announce the addition of a new Design & Marketing employee.
We recently shared with you our re-design labels and logos for Hawaii Nui Brewing and Mehana Brewing Company, as they switched from bottles to cans. Part of that process involved taking the original designs and recreating them with not only less colors to choose from but less space to use.
We recently ran across an advertisement for FIVERR.com, a site that allows you to pay someone $5 to do just about anything from web design to house cleaning. We thought it would be fun to take one of our current clients and see what $5 could get them for a new logo. While we do all of our designs in house and would never actually use someone elseʻs designs as our own, it was fun to be on the other side of the table!
