We took Jess’s awesome sketch (we love sketches) and created a simple and stylish design for SelfMadeinHawaii.com. Then we loaded the site with features that support the show’s mission to provide in-depth interviews with successful local entrepreneurs, helpful business and personal finance tips, and an inside look at some of Hawaii’s most unique and exciting jobs.
We kept it simple and configured SelfMadeinHawaii.com to pull video content directly from YouTube and Vimeo. When you land on the homepage, you can quickly browse and watch Self Made’s most recent video segments. Utilizing the mega-sites for video distribution is ideal because Jess only has to upload video files once, to either YouTube or Vimeo, and his website stays up-to-date. The show’s social media presence is prominently showcased on the homepage, along with the most recent blog posts offering small business resources, success tips, news & announcements, and events.
Self Made’s multi-user blog is WordPress driven, so Jess can create user accounts on the fly. Providing businesses with direct blog access encourages them to share more helpful information online. You can find in-depth information about the show’s format, download a media kit, watch all of season one, and catch up on season two. Additionally, you’re just a simple form away from finding out how you can get involved with Self Made in Hawaii. The fully developed SelfMadeinHawaii.com is exactly what producer Jess Craven needed to unite his online presence and support his popular local TV show.
