Donatelli Entertainment Websites Through The Years!
Well, if you are reading this, then my new website, Donatelli Entertainment 2.0 has been launched! I am very excited about my new site and will be updating it often. If I intend to be one of the most professional, affordable and reliable DJs in Akron, Ohio, I believe a strong website will say a lot about my company. I also think it’s very important to see where you’ve come from, to know where you are going. With that being said, here is a timeline of the Donatelli Entertainment on the web.
DE-Beta Version (2010)
When starting my DJ business in 2010, a photographer friend, Mike Evers of Rentham Creative said that the most important thing for my business is getting a website built. Over the span of about 2 months, my friend Rick and I started to code my first ever, website. Although I knew next to nothing about web design, I vowed to learn enough so that I could update my site, etc, without having to pay a company for this service. Rick was a novice (at the time) in hard-coding a website as well, so we struggled from the beginning. But we managed to get a site launched that didn’t show much other than contact information.
DE 1.0 (2011-December 2013)
Immediately following DE Beta’s launch, I disliked it and wanted something more. So, Rick and I started hammering out Donatelli Entertainment 1.0. I wanted a professional website that could highlight my business and what I could offer customers. With a little more experience coding, I was able to launch DE 1.0 about a month after the Beta version. DE 1.0 was filled with images, videos, testimonials, and even a contact form for potential clients. I LOVED the new website and the way it presented my business. Most importantly, I was very proud to say that I built my own site. Here was the website I used for 2+ years, until December 2013.
DE 2.0 (December 2013-Present)
After launching version 1.0 in 2011, I started to notice my company wasn’t coming up in the search engines as I would have hoped it would. After some research, I noticed that my site was not built for SEO (search engine optimization). Always wanting the be the best, I vowed that one day, I would have a site that is recognized in all search engines. When people typed in “DJs in Akron, Ohio”, I wanted to be the tops on the list. In September of 2013, I teamed up with some friends of mine from RAIN Marketing to help put me on the right path to building the third version of Donatelli Entertainment. This version would not only be interactive and contain social media, images and videos, but also be built for search engine optimization, the way I envisioned it. I am proud to announce that after a couple months of fine tuning, that Donatelli Entertainment 2.0 has launched in December, 2013.
I have put a lot of work into creating a website that can showcase my talent. What better topic for my first blog than to have a timeline of my websites and how I got to this point. I thank you for reading my blog and taking this journey with me through the roots of Donatelli Entertainment!
