Horizons Live – Successful Florida Web Studio
Allison: Tell me a bit about yourself and your business.
Hector: My name is Hector Torres and I own Horizons Live LLC, Florida Web Studio and Business Consulting Company. Our professional team provides efficient business consulting programs and facilitates safe and productive business operations for Florida startups and SMBs.
Allison: Who is your target audience, what do you offer to your customers?
My target audience is people thinking of starting their own business and/or already established startups looking to streamline operations, get online web management assistance, or general business consulting. I conceptualized and launched this business from the ground-up to provide small business entrepreneurs with Web Management and Business Support services.
In the modern business world perspective, every SMB or a startup requires a website, because it serves as a virtual store or services ad 24/7. If your site is not responsive, outmoded, non-attractive to visitors, or needs sustainable improvements, Horizons Live Florida web studio can provide you with professional web design services. Such services for small businesses significantly change your online presence.
Allison: What makes you different from any other Florida web design company?
Hector: Horizons Live has a manageable approach to every customer. We complete the project, including the installation and configuration of a business website. Then you have all the freedom to modify structure and content. However, we are always here to help you if you are too busy starting or developing your new business. So, Horizons Live team can continue updating your website after the first design steps, and become the constant web development and design manager of it.
We are delighted to manage web design services as a successful Florida web design company for small businesses and start-ups. Our studio provides all the necessary website maintenance services. The main goal of Horizons Live is to make your website drive your business. The websites, our Florida web studio creates for you, are easily found online, contain clear and accurate information, and develop effortlessly. Every client can get immediate help, advice, or comprehensive consultation from the Horizon Live team.
Allison: What was your experience level in building websites prior to meeting the MotoCMS admin panel? Have you used any other systems before?
Hector: Of course, I have made some WordPress sites and used a couple of DIY options from GoDaddy.
Allison: How did you come up with an idea of creating a website with MotoCMS? What benefits did cut a decisive figure?
Hector: I wanted something better than what I was exercising at the time. I came across Moto CMS many years ago and decided to give it a try. I’ve been hooked ever since because of its easy-to-use admin panel. Moto CMS is now my primary go-to CMS platform.
Allison: What was the last MotoCMS template you bought and why?
Hector: ManuFactor was the last template our web studio purchased. I had a potential client who was involved in building enclosures for traffic signals. Instead, I ended up using it for a general construction services company that specializes in general construction and mold remediation.
You can find the template Hector recently tried below. ManuFactor is a powerful and feature-rich industrial and manufacturing website template. It is a fully re-designable and multipurpose solution with a user-friendly MotoCMS builder inside.
Allison: Please, share a few thoughts on getting your website launched. Was it abstruse for you or vice versa? How much time did it take?
Hector: I usually take advantage of the installation service, so it becomes pretty seamless for me in that regard. Once I start editing, the process is rather simple. At first, I struggled to find where the widgets were and how to apply them, but that’s more because, as a man, I wanted to figure it out on my own. Had I read the help files, it would have been much more straightforward. LOL
Allison: What features in the admin panel would you consider the most useful for editing your website?
Hector: They are all handy and easy to use. I really can’t choose just one at the moment. I guess Rows comes to mind, but all of them are really essential.
Allison: What would you like to get with MotoCMS in the future (features, widgets, plugins, improvements)?
Hector: A month or so ago, I would have said the ability to use breadcrumbs and to customize the contact forms a bit more. With the newest releases, those features have been added. If I had to nitpick, I would say that I prefer a more natural way to switch between pages for editing in the previous versions of the admin panel. However, MotoCMS is already more than helpful for our small business clients!
