Denver’s Unleaded Group Adds Extra Octane to Web Design

Born as Unleaded Software in a basement in 1996, like so many of the earliest internet ventures, the Denver-based Unleaded Group has grown into an industry-leading web development company with over 40 staff members in offices in Denver and Ahmedabad, India and a client list spanning four continents. To highlight the company’s expanded capabilities and growth, the Unleaded Group launched a complete redesign of its website in June to a Responsive format.

Responsive Design is a process by which websites are coded as they’re built to recognize how an online shopper is connecting to the internet—by a desktop computer, cell phone or tablet. Once detected, the site’s contents automatically populate to fit the fit the appropriately-sized screen—from wide to mid-size to narrow. As growing numbers of shoppers do their shopping on the internet, companies like Unleaded work to maximize their clients’ exposure on search engines such as Google giving them the tools to convert those shoppers into buyers—the newest innovation being Responsive Design.

“Customers don’t want to shop on sites where they can’t use links and buttons without zooming or excessive scrolling, where images are too small to see, or where navigation is difficult or confusing—all things that happen when a website not built on a Responsive or mobile platform,” said Jarod Clark, founder and president of the Unleaded Group.

Google is behind the rush to go Responsive. The dominant search engine internet-wide, Google controls how online searches function. About 1 ½ years ago, Google announced the upcoming change that would require that websites be mobile or Responsive to appear on a list of search findings. Then in early 2015, Google made the switch, altering its algorithm to eliminate non-mobile or Responsive sites from any search conducted on a phone or tablet.

Statista.com, a statistics portal, announced “Worldwide mobile phone internet user penetration reached 73.4 percent in 2013. That number is expected to jump to 90+ percent by 2017.”

“By making its site adaptable (Responsive or mobile), a business guarantees itself a higher ranking in search results,” Clark noted.

Once a shopper lands on a website, it’s crucial that they’re able to move quickly to things that interest them and buy those things easily and securely. This becomes the job of Unleaded’s team of content managers and site developers. “On a website, especially on a small screen like a cell phone, a picture is literally worth a thousand words,” said Leon Averbukh, Unleaded’s Director of Digital Marketing. “By using strong images, we can help a shopper recognize things they want and quickly direct them to the products they want to buy.”

While there are several ready-made templates for building websites—platforms, in the trade jargon—Unleaded’s true expertise is in customized design for Magento, ExpressionEngine or hybrids of the two. “We integrate the best features of each platform to net a site that’s optimized for a customer’s specific needs,” Clark said.

Magento is the leading ecommerce platform, ExpressionEngine is Unleaded’s preferred content managed solution. “Magento is used to power some of the most respected online businesses—like e-Bay, for instance—and is the platform of choice for nearly every serious seller on the internet.” One of the earliest Magento affiliates, Unleaded boasts 11 Magento-certified developers on its staff. “We grew alongside Magento and are experts at integrating its robust e-commerce capabilities with other content management systems like Expression Engine and Craft for large and small clients alike.”

The Unleaded Group includes a solar-powered internet hosting company, Beanstalk Solar Hosting, as well as its Octane India division and was recently awarded Gold Star Certification from the Denver/Boulder Better Business Bureau.

Losing Americas Extra Pounds: Fitness Boot Camp Rapidly Expanding


Chino Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) April 16, 2015

Fit Body Boot Camp is the world’s most popular and fastest growing indoor fitness boot camp brand. The fitness center offers powerful Afterburn workouts and lifestyle accountability systems that help members get incredible weight loss results.

The franchise was created by fitness industry icon Bedros Keuilian. A highly sought after business and marketing consultant, Keuilian works with hundreds of fitness professionals and businesses each year to help them grow and stabilize their profits.

Keuilian created The Fit Body Boot Camp Franchise business model after years of studying, operating and consulting fitness businesses. He sought a model that guaranteed results for clients while increasing and regulating income for fitness entrepreneurs. The Fit Body Boot Camp Franchise model is, according to Keuilian, “the greatest fitness business option for any entrepreneur or investor.”

The franchise headquarters has recently opened more locations and signed more franchise agreements than ever previously. 2015 shows an average of 7 new locations opening their doors each month with an average of 11 new franchise agreements purchased each month.

But the most impressive record-breaking numbers are that of interested parties requesting information regarding new franchise agreements. March of 2015 showed nearly 500 investors seriously inquiring about acquiring their own franchise location.

Keuilian offered an explanation as to why his franchise model has become so popular with fitness professionals and non-fitness investors alike:

“The old style of one-on-one personal training is dead,” said Keuilian. “There just isn’t enough stability or reliability in that model. Clients can’t afford to pay the rates trainers deserve and the results clients get from one-on-one training just doesn’t compare to group training.

“That’s why Fit Body Boot Camp is so powerful: it combines a personal trainer with a group atmosphere. These dual accountability systems are what keep clients working toward results. Plus, it comes at a price that most can afford.”

Keuilian also went into detail about how the company’s Afterburn workouts help guarantee results:

“It’s called Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption, or ‘EPOC’ for short. Basically, it means that if you do a particular type of workout, the type we offer at our boot camps, you will burn extra calories.

“The Afterburn effect causes the body to keep burning calories for hours after the workout is finished. That means, our clients burn extra calories and they keep burning them, even when they aren’t at boot camp.”

Keuilian also explained how Fit Body Boot Camp’s group atmosphere, combined with attention from a personal trainer, allows for the best results:

“There’s no better way to stay accountable to workout and nutrition goals than when working out with friends. And whether someone brings friends or makes new ones at boot camp, the group environment, combined with the individualized attention of a personal trainer, is the best guarantee of results.”

Extra Christmas Trees Turn into Animal Treats


Oakland, CA (PRWEB) January 06, 2015

Dozens of leftover Christmas trees have turned into special treats for Oakland Zoo animals. Right after the holiday season wrapped up, zoo staff received a call from a local tree lot hoping to donate a truckload of trees. Zookeepers were eager to accept the extras as they use the saplings in a variety of ways.

The small pine trees turn into sticky snacks for animals such as the giraffes, zebras, camels, and goats to enjoy. For baboons and otters, zookeepers place goodies among the tree branches for the animals to find. It’s a game of smell and seek that many creatures seem to relish. “The Christmas trees provide our zoo animals with a unique seasonal enrichment,” said Colleen Kinzley, Director of Animal Care at Oakland Zoo. “Animals in the wild encounter different plants and flowers at different times of the year; the Christmas trees and other items allow use to replicate that seasonal variety. Some of the hoof stock animals enjoy browsing on the trees, while other animals may use them as toys or furniture.”

These trees are a form of enrichment zookeepers strive to give all animals at Oakland Zoo. Squirrel monkeys enjoy swinging and hanging around in the noble firs, and they treat the firs like new furniture in their exhibit. During this time of year, tree donations provide a seasonal delight for the animals to explore, experience, and smell in their exhibits. Guests may see the animals enjoying the seasonal tree treats daily from 10:00am – 4:00pm.

***Media Advisory: On Thursday, January 8 from 11:00am – 12:30pm, video and photo opportunities of animals feasting on trees will be available. Please contact Nicky Mora at (510) 632-9525, ext 130 if you plan on attending. Media should meet at the Zoo by 10:45am, under the Oakland Zoo sign at the Main Entrance of the Zoo.***


    11:00am:    Hyenas
    11:30pm:    Meerkats
    11:45pm:     Elephants
    12:15pm:     Baboons

Oakland Zoo would like to thank Crystal River Christmas Trees in Alameda for donating their leftover trees to the Zoo animals.

ANIMAL ENRICHMENT:

Animal enrichment items (special play toys, unique scents, or food treats) are a valuable asset to all zoos. Not only do they provide the exercise that all animals need, but they also help to keep the animals active, engaged, and foraging in natural behaviors. While visiting Oakland Zoo, guests may see firsthand how the animals interact with various enrichment items. Oakland Zoo does accept animal enrichment donations. For a complete list of items people can donate, go to: http://www.oaklandzoo.org/Donate_Goods.php
