BOSTON MARKETING AGENCY FINDS SIZZLING SUCCESS PRODUCING WEBSITES FOR VIRGIN ISLANDS BUSINESSES
NEWTON, MA (January 21, 2016) – Champ Internet Solutions (www.champinternet.com), a full-service marketing agency specializing in web design and development, digital marketing and brand strategy, is virtually escaping the New England winter this year by helping to grow businesses in the Virgin Islands. The Newton-based company recently opened a sales office in St. Thomas and has worked with multiple businesses throughout this tropical destination.
Seth Worby, Champ’s CEO and founder said, “We had a unique opportunity to open a sales office in St. Thomas in the fall and were able to develop partnerships quickly with a few prominent local businesses. We truly enjoy working with the restaurant and hospitality industry. The recent work we’ve done on St. Thomas provides us with an opportunity to design a website with one audience in mind. We are focused on putting the consumer experience at the forefront and building optimized responsive websites that introduce consumers to the business or service and to drive foot traffic to the physical business locations.”
One of the websites Champ recently launched is Explore Virgin Islands (www.explorevirginislands.com), a tourism and hospitality site that serves as an online hub for tourists interested in visiting the Virgin Islands. For tourists, www.explorevirginislands.com will help them select the perfect island for their tropical getaway, discover activities on each island, and find lodging and dining with only a few clicks. For businesses that are located on the islands, business owners can claim their directory listing for free or select an advertising plan that fits within their budget to enhance their directory listing. An enhanced listed can have multiple images, list contact information and include a link to the website for more details.
Champ also launched a new website for Grand Jewelers (www.grandjewelers.com), a 33 year-old family-run jewelry business, with two store locations, one on the island of St. Thomas and one on St. Maarten. Grand Jewelers sells a wide variety of engagement rings, wedding bands, and watches. In addition, they offer Designer Collections from Charles Garnier, Hearts on Fire, Bridal Bells, and more. The new website enables customers from all over the world to view and purchase their amazing pieces, not only the customers visiting the stores on the Virgin Islands.
In addition, Champ had the opportunity to partner with one of the largest restaurant groups on St. Thomas, the St. Thomas Restaurant Group (www.stthomasrestaurantgroup.com). The restaurant group, owns and operates eight top-rated restaurants on the island, including: Pesce Italian, Sunset Grille, Caribbean Fish Market, Raw Sushi + Sake Bar, Melt Mexican Grill, Sangria’s Beachside Bistro, Cruzan Beach Club, and Zest Frozen Yogurt. The restaurant group website serves as a hub for all the restaurants so tourists can explore the diverse options, job seekers can review opportunities for employment, and interested parties can book an event. Additionally, the eight restaurant websites are also new, featuring vibrant photography, detailed online menus and downloadable PDFs for easy viewing, information on events and specials, newsletter sign-ups, and links to social media pages. The individual restaurant websites provide an easy way for tourists to select their favorite dining spot, make a reservation, plan an event, or simply view the menu from the beach prior to arriving.
