INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Nov. 5, 32016) — As an entity under the American Angus Association umbrella, Angus Media is a source of printed and digitally presented information about all things Angus. Accordingly, Angus Media’s Internet presence is becoming the Angus enthusiast’s portal to relevant online resources, including upcoming industry events, cattle sale reports, advertising, plus content from Angus Media publications.

Andy Blumer, web team lead for Angus Media, conducted a workshop during the 2016 Angus Convention hosted in Indianapolis, Ind., to explain the web-site design and web-hosting services available to Angus breeders.

“We offer responsive web design, meaning we can make your site mobile-friendly — optimized for viewing on handheld devices, including tablets and smartphones,” said Blumer.

Explaining how a new web services client can get started, Blumer said a web design coordinator will help collect and organize photographs, company logos and information telling the “story” a client wants to tell about the operation. A client may also provide links to brochures, sale books and other information. The web design team then builds a concept site page, which is offered for client approval.

“Through your coordinator, you have an open line of communication with the design team to further develop and refine your site,” said Blumer, explaining that Angus Media also offers photography, video production and copywriting services to help enhance the client’s site presentation.

 “Also, we can incorporate automatic updates of American Angus Association performance data [expected progeny differences (EPDs) and dollar value indices ($Value)] to make sure visitors to your site can access the most current information on your cattle,” added Blumer. “Additionally, we can set up analytics of traffic to your site, sending you a monthly report of where traffic to your site originates.”

According to Blumer, the basic rate for web design is $750 and includes up to five pages per website. Additional pages may be added at the rate of $100 each. Additional add-on features come at extra cost. The charge for web hosting is $310 per year and includes one domain name.

Blumer’s presentation was part of a series of half-hour workshops hosted Nov. 5-6 in the Angus booth within the trade show at the 2016 Angus Convention.
