Schipul – The Web Marketing Company Delivers Upgraded Website for Hour Messenger
Three out of four same day delivery requests come via the Web
HOUSTON, September 26, 2011 – Hour Messenger, the only Houston courier service offering 20, 30 and 45-minute delivery services plus eight other same-day services to meet customer needs, has launched its new website (http://hourmessenger.com/) designed by Schipul – The Web Marketing Co. (www.schipul.com). The new website, with its bright colors, large images and simple navigation, is an illustration of how the delivery industry is changing.
“It wasn’t long ago that almost all our business came from our ads in the phone book, but now everyone uses search engines and orders online,” said Hour Messenger Owner Randy L. Ward. “With our new website, the Schipul team has helped us improve our visibility in the search engines such as Google, which is essential since approximately 75 percent of our business comes through online searches.”
Hour Messenger’s new website is powered by WordPress. It prominently features links to a password protected order page along with their four core services: document delivery; parcel, cargo and freight; hot food deliveries; and executive services. To make the website a valuable resource for customers, it also features helpful links to Houston-area courts and government agencies, as well as traffic and weather information.
The new site also seeks to capitalize on customer feedback – making it easy for customers to comment on their service and offer suggestions. The new website also integrates with Hour Messenger’s social media activities, including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Schipul’s customizable line of WordPress-powered website and blog packages include installation, module enhancements and custom themes. WordPress blog and website design extends and complements the Tendenci® online management software that Schipul develops and markets.
