Making The Right Pitch
Seattle Met, a SagaCity Media company, is Seattle’s monthly indispensable news, culture, and lifestyle magazine. Favoring bold design, eye-catching photography, and a witty editorial voice, they came to us for help reworking their sales & media kit, in addition to moving their print publication to the web.
After the Sales & Media redesign, Seattle Met Ad Revenue sales increased by 10%. We were off to a great start.
A New Way To Deliver The News
Being the city’s go-to guide for news, culture and lifestyle for almost a decade, moving a print publication to web carried huge responsibilities. We would not only be designing the front-end, but an elaborate rail-based CMS to manage content and supporting mobile app geared towards Seattle restaurants.
After the redesign was launched, time spent on the site shot up a whopping 75%.
Before we started working on seattlemet.com, it took five staffers two full weeks to upload a single issue of the magazine. Our custom Ruby on Rails CMS cut the upload time to a single day. In addition, our SEO work helped them reach page one of Google for several keywords within just three months.
