Tactical Actions Group (TAG) came to BashBang looking to update their website. They were happy with the overall design of the site but needed work done to make it more functional.
They needed the ability to make copy and minor images updates to their website without working through a developer. This required a CMS. They also needed their site to be search engine compatible and to work on a iPhone/iPad. Their site was created in Flash many years ago and didn’t do the SEO very well nor did it work in the iOS devices.
BashBang build a WordPress skin based on their current design. We made design and usability improvements where necessary. We also built them a nice submission form for recruiting purposes and class signup purposes.
All of these changes resulted in a far higher ranking on the targeted keywords in google providing the site with better traffic as well as higher volumes of recruit submissions.
