The internet is saturated with websites. Users determine what organizations and companies they trust almost as soon as the homepage opens on their computer. Every visitor on your site is a prospective client meeting. How are you dressed?
Each of our websites is unique, attractive, and constructed in a way that will drive visitors to take the desired action. Give us a call or scroll down to contact us via email.

More than a just a website
What we use
A great website consists of three things: high performance coding, smart graphic design, and effective language. Our web development team consists of three people who have the skills required to do the work correctly.
James is the Lead Developer for all web services. James has been making websites since 2010. He has been working full time at Boiling Pot Media since founding "the Webstuff firm" in 2012.
Simon does Graphic Design. He has worked with Boiling Pot Media since 2015. Simon brings an intelligent aesthetic approach to our web designs, and has a tuned sense for designing websites that meet the goals of the client and their audience. Simon graduated from the University of Michigan with a BFA in 2011.
Kathi assists many of our clients by composing taglines, product descriptions, blog posts, and pages for their website.
We have made websites that do a lot of different things. Here's some general functions that we can provide. If you're looking for something that's not on the list, call James.
Set yourself up with a site that converts readers to leads through careful subscription placement.
DocBox Websites (Dropbox-Like website)
Maintain an online drag and drop file exchange system. Restrict access to files by user. Allow your team to share a system of common files. Allow your clients to upload files to private folders so that you can easily get and send content to them.
Distributed Content System (DCS)
DCS is a syndication system that automates cross-platform posting, wringing all of the value out of the content you create. If you post on Facebook, your website will automatically capture it and turn it into a Blog post, and vice versa. Read more about DCS.
- Accept donations
- Sell items (a bumper sticker or a webinar that you created)
- Host a complete inventory of thousands of products with a cart-based checkout system
- Calculate current shipping rates with your favorite company
- Issue fulfillment orders to your distributor
- Retain contact information from your customers
- We offer e-commerce at a scale and cost that fits your needs.
Publish courses that users can pay to take, or take for free. Courses can be broken down into many lessions with multiple topics. At the end of sections of the course users can take interactive quizes, good scores can unlock achievements, certificates, and more.
With a backend system designed to look beautiful on the front end, you can easily post your events online. This optimization allows users to RSVP, purchase tickets, and has the ability to restrict the number of tickets to be sold. Contact data from registrants can be automatically gathered and added to your email list at MailChimp or Constant Contact. The calendar can automatically post events fed from an ics feed - like Google Calendars.
Capture customer and client emails via webforms and other tools. Then, create beautiful HTML email newsletters to keep them abreast of what you are doing. If you want to save time, we can talk about configuring an RSS-based newsletter that will automatically generate a newsletter comprised of the posts that you make on your website.

Paid Membership Websites
Paid membership websites can accomplish a lot of goals. If you run a local club and are tired of tracking dues - we can develop a paid membership website that will allow all of your members to purchase and renew their memberships online so that you can just access the website to see who is up on their payment. Or, you can sell access to your website. If you have special knowledge or experience to share, you can have people pay to be able access the content of the website.
Create a members-only area…
- for your employees, where they can safely share files;
- for your clients, so that your copyrighted content can only be reached by those who you’ve invited;
- for your community, so you can each share equally in developing ideas.
Social Media Sharing
Having a well integrated Social Media system is essential to engaging with and growing your audience.
- Share tools allow users to conveniently share your content on their preferred network.
- Integrate Social Media follow tools allow users to track your activity.
- Automate Social Media posts to some or all networks so that you don’t have to spend the time logging into each obscure social network every time you release new content.
Social Media Networks
Build a place for an online community with a website that works like Facebook. Users can follow, instant message, post to their wall, view each others wall, do more than that - or less.
Slideshows, Galleries, and Lightboxes
Get current media – video, image, audio – from your latest works, and easily present that media in a unique, striking way with styled galleries and frames.
If you have a community that wants to support each other by sharing information via forums, let's make a forum. Users can be required to pay to have access to the forum.
Maybe you have a vision for a brand new function, or have seen another site host a feature that works for what you are trying to do. JRyven Web Design WordPress Development will make it happen. Talk to us about it!
