Well the transition from old to new is finally complete with the old domain pointing to the new website and everything appears to be functioning well. Feel free to look hard to find a link that doesn’t work and let me know so that it can be fixed. The bird galleries have now been completed and although the navigation tree is a bit cumbersome it does divide the birds into more manageable size galleries and places most birds in their proper taxonomic groupings. I’ve also added Google Analytics to the site which tracks all activity and provides very detailed statistics which will help me understand who is visiting the site so that we can continue providing information relevant to those who frequent SMP. If you have a website and are not yet using Google Analytics, you should check it out right away….you will be glad you did, especially when you realize its absolutely free 🙂
The next addition to the website will be the incorporation of private client galleries for the viewing of proofs from photo shoots as well as the development of an e-commerce area for the purchase of prints, cards, calendars and other stationary items. I have also partnered with a local custom framer which will allow people to order prints matted and framed to their specifications.
Thankfully this will be the last of the ‘update’ posts. Thanks again for your patience as we’ve made the transition and I hope you enjoy the new SMP website and blog.
