Linda Taylor is creating an online catalog and promotional site for Sanderson Local Goods, a fundraising project for a school Parent Teacher Organization. The catalog where area merchants donate to the school by offering deep discounts on gifts, meals, and other services. Those who purchase goods and services from the catalog are donating a portion of the discount to the PTO.

The new site will integrate with WooCommerce for online purchasing. Linda expanded the site a great deal, bringing in more local context and background to add the sense of value for customers purchasing from the site. The project and product were both a lot of fun for everyone involved.

Corey Vaz developed a very warm relationship with his client, Eric Ackerly of Smart Building Products, and they have both had a great experience working together. The Discovery phase, where Corey analyzed Eric’s responses and generated a scoping document, built a sense of trust and mutual understanding.

Corey applied business principles from GCC’s ECommerce course to communicate effectively with his first live client, a seasoned businessman and engineer with a strong customer relations focus. The new website deeply complements the business model, and both Corey and Eric expect to continue working together.
