Luke's Toys had an existing store that the owner couldn't manage himself. Blink Development was able to create a site for him that he can update and run on his own. We did this by setting up an SSL certificate to securely accept payments, setting up UPS integration for dynamic shipping costs based on dimensions of parts and products, a complete website redesign, a parts wizard, shopping cart and check out system, and automatic purchase confirmation emails. To include the 700+ parts, accessories and products to the site, we created an upload database that included descriptions, images, dimensions, costs.
Our goal in designing and developing a new website for your company is for your new website to have all the features and functionality you want, and for it to be easy to maintain. Before we begin developing any site, we analyze any existing website you have to determine the strengths and weaknesses, and work with you to decide what functionality you want to have on the new site –whether those features are existing on a current site or new features you'd like. With our in-house capabilities to create new websites from the ground up, work with an existing platform to make changes, integrate ecommerce, or create a specialized mobile site, we are confident that we will be able to provide you with a beautiful, functional site that meets all of your needs and more.
Blink's development and design team works hand in hand with you to create detailed layout mockups, site maps, and descriptions of all site features and design elements that will be included. We will detail features to be carried over from any existing site, new features to be included, and more. These planning efforts insure that the new website will come out looking just as it was planned to, with all the features and content you want.
Our design team breathes life into your project with custom artwork that fits the theme and feel of your company. Whether your site has ten static pages or thousands of dynamically changing sites, we make sure the design will work for your site no matter what the contents are. We take your existing logo design into account to make sure that it is the corner stone of your website. From the logo, we can decide on color schemes, font styles and overall formatting to make your site consistent.
Blink developers are equipped, trained and properly caffeinated. We're knowledgeable in HTML, CSS, Flash, php, SQL, Drupal, WordPress, PC, Mac and more. All of our combined knowledge means we can provide the best website in any language and platform on any machine. We put all sites through rigorous compatibility testing to be sure that the experience of your site is the same no matter the browser, operating system or device.
We want your site to see continued success after it's been launched. To do this, our management team frequently updates content on our clients' websites, including specials, blog posts, vid pictures, and news stories. Keeping your site up-to-date with fresh content gives your customers more reasons to come back to visit your site again and again.
Our goal is to create an easy-to-use website that you can update with new content and specials any time you like. After the launch of your new site, we will train you and your staff on how to make changes to the site. Since we're based locally in Orange County, CA, we can come to your location to show you how to use the site in your own environment on your own computers. Any time you have questions, your partners at Blink Development are happy to help you with your site.

In 2010, Blink Development undertook one of our most challenging and exciting project to date. McKenna Cars (a Los Angeles BMW, Porsche, Audi and VW family of dealerships) hired us to completely redesign, build and execute a simultaneous launch of six brand new websites for each of their dealerships. It was quite a challenge but one for which we are contentiously proud. Since then, we have managed and marketed each website, consistently cultivating their site traffic and conversions. Aside from the six main websites, we have also created websites for the pre-owned inventory for the entire group, a website dedicated to finance needs of local car shoppers, a host of mobile websites, product micro-sites, social media profiles, advertising campaigns, and much more for McKenna.
