MarineMax Vacations partnered with Bayshore Solutions to build a website design to reflect its high-end brand and clientele. The new web presence needed to build brand strength and carry the right voice to reach the company’s discerning clientele and increase charter vacation and yacht sales leads. In addition, the new website needed to not only allow visitors to access information with ease and speed, but also provide calls to action that deliver charter and sales leads to MarineMax Vacations.
Bayshore Solutions designed a website that focused on the target audience of the website –active boaters—with images that portray their love of water, adventure and travel. Bayshore Solutions also integrated DotNetNuke, a content management system, specifically requested for this website. This website’s custom design and development allows visitors to easily navigate the website and fill out various call-to-action forms furthering the company’s goals of increasing leads and sales.
