Kentwood Office Furniture is the Midwest’s premier specialist in high quality remanufactured, used, and new office furniture.

No longer just in ‘Kentwood’ they have locations in Traverse City, Jackson, Lansing, Detroit, Indianapolis, and Chicago.
Their last site was built before the advent of mobile tablets and the proliferation of smartphones, so they asked the Imagination Factory to make it mobile ready, revamp the ecommerce section to make it easier for online customers to browse online, request quotes and convert those quotes to orders.

Some things haven’t changed throughout three generations of service. Today, Bos Greenhouse uses the latest planting techniques and the best agricultural science to produce superior seedlings and delectable vegetables. This enables them to deliver high quality products at fair market prices. Though farm practices have changed, their homespun philosophy hasn’t.
What also has changed is their logo AND the milestone of being awarded the ‘Centennial Farm’ designation.
To celebrate, the Imagination Factory was asked to give the site an entire overhaul. Similar to the advance in farming, Bos wanted the new site to be mobile responsive, easy for them to manage, flexible enough for them to add their farm reports, recipes, and other tips, and above all be visible in search engines so more people could see what Bos has to offer.

The problem arises because many site owners think of SEO (search engine optimization) as a turn-key solution that you simply plug and play into your site. After all, SEO increases your SEV in SERP, so you want to have one/it/them… but, like everyone, you want to save money on it.
