On Friday August 23, 2013 Bainbridge Island was presented with the eCity award which is pretty outstanding for a community built mostly of small businesses, it was even sweeter for us at All Media Internet Marketing when Bon Bon Candies was selected to have the presentation. All Media Internet Marketing has worked with many businesses around the Island and around the sound but Bon Bon was a unique case for us. A brick and mortar store with a well known name locally and decent following off of the island due to a Facebook page and an existing web site. We worked with Lisa on a new look for the site with a new online shopping cart and some extensive SEO work. We watched Bon Bon Candies traffic increase dramatically.
Nothnagle, one of several Google representatives at Friday’s award ceremony, said the choice of venue was an example of Bainbridge’s exceptional online presence.
“We found Bon Bon online,” Nothnagle said as she explained the reasons the boutique confectionary was chosen to host the presentation.
She also noted their particularly effective online ordering system and shipping methods.
“They ship fudge to almost every state in the country,” Nothnagle said.
