eCommerce with a Cause:
Bainbridge Youth Services Sells Jams Online

'Tis the season for parties and presents, and now Bainbridge Youth Services (BYS) can help you give delicious Washington fruit jams as gifts, the easy way. You buy online, BYS ships anywhere.

Specially packaged with custom-designed ferry boat labels and gingham cloth lid cozies, the tasty jams are made exclusively for BYS.

All jam purchases raise funds to support BYS in their mission to help kids with free confidential counseling and jobs programs.

brandUNITY designed and implemented the secure jams shopping cart for this BYS fundraiser. We installed the free, open source software Joomla!, on their website, and adapted it to work with their branding. The dynamic cart was written and modified using the programming language PHP and uses a MySQL database, providing features such as customer-submitted product reviews, polling and survey functions, animated product displays, and eNews subscription options.

Order your jams before December 12th to have them shipped in time for the holidays. Your online purchase is the easy way to give with a heart for kids. MORE>>

Marketing Tip:
The Key to Complex Sales Cycles

In a complex sales cycle, potential sales may be in the works for years before they become viable. The key to winning them is to cultivate presence, relationships, and trust with decision makers and their associates, long before the sales surface.

Regular, strategic marketing campaigns with consistent brand focus will build and maintain your presence even when you do not see immediate sales response following a campaign distribution.

Deborah & Richard Vancil of VanLumen Architectural Lighting were hired by the LensCrafters stores to design and fabricate 900 fixtures, the culmination of a busy quarter which also saw them collaborate with JD Francis of Phoenix Designs in Kingston on custom sconces for the Forth & Towne clothing stores.

VanLumen also designed and fabricated fixtures for Haagen Dazs stores and the Harborside Condominiums in Bremerton, along with a custom pendant light fixture for The Vinyard on Bainbridge Island.

See some of the Company's products at www.vanlumen.com or contact Richard for more information about architectural lighting projects for large commercial and residential developments.

brandUNITY worked with VanLumen on their business naming, visual identity, and website for business launch; we recently updated the VanLumen website with their newest, gorgeous lighting products.
