The Summer of MD
New Sites Showcase

The best way to grow Marketers Delight into a mature website platform is by throwing it into difficult, real-world situations.

Over the summer MD has quietly taken huge leaps forward in what it’s able to achieve, and has crystalized a vision for its next evolution with MD4.7 on the horizon.

Check out the new places Marketers Delight now lives around the web, and take inspiration for your own designs:

#1) Advisor Evolved: Insurance Agency Websites Built for SEO, Mobile, & Conversions

Custom web design, templates, and membership integration.

Advisor Evolved

Advisor Evolved has gone through 3 major design iterations on Marketers Delight, in addition to a fleet or websites built with custom MD child themes.

Over the summer I took a custom design by Chris Langille and integrated it into his existing WordPress setup, with a few custom templates around the website. This design was made for conversions and creating more interactive elements to improve site navigation.

#2) IAOA Alliance: Independent Agency Owners Alliance

Custom web design, templates, and WordPress admin integration.

IAOA Alliance

Through Advisor Evolved, we made a custom design with full WordPress admin integration for the new IAOA Alliance website. IAOA is an established group of insurance agents, and they needed their new website to promote their message and sell tickets to their upcoming conference.

#3) Startup Bros: Learn How to Start an Online Business and Quit Your Day Job

PSD to coded WordPress, admin integration + custom LearnDash LMS

StartupBros

Longtime MD user Will Mitchell asked me to code a custom design into MD + WordPress that better organizes the vast amount of content and guides they have. After the site was complete, we created a custom integration with the popular Learning Management Software, LearnDash, to create an interactive members area for StartupBros’ paid courses.

#4) The Real Estate Writer: Real Estate Copy That Converts

PSD to coded WordPress, landing page templates, custom admin controls.

The Real Estate Writer

Ken Speegle needed a cleaner redesign for his copywriting services and provided me with a professionally designed PSD template to see that vision through. Alongside the nice design, custom admin controls were made with MD’s internal API to make editing custom templates around his site easy.

#5) The Counterpart: A Refreshingly Different Newsletter

Custom landing page template, email form integration.

The Counterpart

A simple landing page designed to get more email signups for The Counterpart newsletter. We went through a couple of redesigns—one version with a quiz-like email signup form—but found that simpler always converts better.

#6) Optimized Assets: Digital Marketing Solutions & Funnel Management

Design refresh, custom admin controls, and custom page templates.

Optimized Assets

Optimized Assets hired me to take a design they made with a cluttered page builder tool and cleanly code it into Marketers Delight. By adding custom admin controls, the OA team could easily edit their new custom templates. By dropping their old page builder, we were able to create a much cleaner and faster site for their team to add new content in.

#7) Real Estate Worldwide: House Flipping & Real Estate Investment Strategies That Actually Work

PSD to coded WordPress, custom admin controls, various landing page templates

Real Estate Worldwide

Through Optimized Assets, I was tasked to convert a site that was built with another cluttered page builder and cleanly code it into Marketers Delight. There were dozens of landing pages that needed to be converted into the new theme system, and since MD, the REWW website has performed better and marketers the site’s content offerings more broadly.

#8) True Performance Engineering: Custom Jetski Motors, Engines, and Parts

Custom design + development, WooCommerce shop integration

StartupBros

For some of the best jetski motors around, look no further than True Performance Engineering. Based out of New Jersey, I was able to develop this site fairly quickly while visiting the True Performance shop. This site catalogs all of TPE’s motor options, and allows customers to custom order their motor through a cool WooCommerce integration.

#9) McClain Insurance: Protecting Our Northwest Neighbors Wherever Life Takes Them

Custom PSD design to WordPress, admin integration, deep site SEO

McClain Insurance

Partnered with the Advisor Evolved team, I took a custom PSD design and old static HTML website to piece together the new website for McClain Insurance. Of all the websites mentioned here, this was easily the largest undertaking with a plethora of old pages to convert into WordPress and a massive amount of coordination with the SEO team to optimize all pages.

#10) Niche Site Nirvana: A Step-by-Step Niche Marketing Guide

Custom design + development, Easy Digital Downloads eCommerce integration

Niche Site Nirvana

I designed and coded a simple landing page template to help Ray Smith sell his Niche Site Nirvana eBook. Using MD as a base, I quickly came up with a design and copied Ray’s sale copy into it, with some creative touches throughout the copy. For the membership and eCommerce side, I added the same custom Checkout and members area system I use here on the MD site.

#11) Next Day Lettering: Graphics When You Need Them

PSD to coded WordPress, contact form integration.

Next Day Lettering

My friends at AGX Designs came up with their first web design template and had me code it for their mini service, Next Day Lettering. This is a simple site overall and hooks up to a contact form that allows them to easily get new leads.

#12) Wholly Cow Burgers: The Best Grass-fed Burgers in Austin, Texas

Custom design + code, Google Maps integration, online ordering

Wholly Cow Burgers

My favorite burger spot in Austin needed a new website that better represented their brand, so I whipped up a custom site design in exchange for a burger (or something like that). To give their hungry customers an easy way to find their food trucks throughout the week, I added a custom Google Maps integration to find them at-a-glance.

#13) Integrity Insurance: Tucson, Arizona Insurance Agent

Custom PSD design to WordPress, admin controls, Gravity Forms integration.

Integrity Insurance

In what may be the nicest design in this list, I partnered with Advisor Evolved to turn a beautiful PSD into a fully functional website for Erin Nutting’s insurance company in Arizona. I used a few extra tools with MD, including Gravity Forms, and made a very beautiful form for user’s to fill out to get quoted on insurance.

Coming Soon: Broker Digital, AGX Designs, Wicked Training Systems

Custom blog designs, landing pages, and WooCommerce Shops

AGX Designs
Wicked Training Systems

As always I have a few projects laying around that aren’t quite finished or are still under active development. With these last 3 sites making up a part of my summer, I couldn’t help but include them. Ranging from custom landing pages, WooCommerce integration, and cool content editing tools, these projects will be great additions to the MD suite once completed.

Marketers Delight into the Future

Building on the knowledge I gained from working on these sites, I put every free moment I had into the upcoming and massive Marketers Delight 4.7 release, which is nearly ready to be sent to your sites.

I sent out a newsletter the other day with some thoughts and what to expect from Marketers Delight 4.7, which you can read here.

As I put the final touches on MD4.7, I’m always looking for interesting projects like what you just saw to take on—let me know what you’ve got.
