Flag City Cart Company

Flag City Carts Web Page

Flag City Cart Company provides free shuttle rides in downtown Findlay, Ohio.

High-definition monitors or static posters mounted on the carts place advertisers in the middle of their client base.

The partially obscured cart photo accomplishes two purposes: It announces “we’re just arriving” while hiding the lack of monitors... the real carts were still being built when the site launched!

Advertise with us: Demographics and technical details for advertisers.

Come ride with us: Where to look for our carts and how to catch a ride.

Come drive for us: Requirements for aspiring drivers and how to apply.

Digital Displays and Static Boards: These sample ads (produced by Thinking Small) show what the portrait-oriented ads might look like. Real ads will eventually rotate on the home page just like on the carts!

“Dave Treat and his many skills BLEW OUR MINDS!!

Ohio Party Bus and Limo is a series of ten individual landing pages... each targeting a specific client scenario (weddings, reunions, parties, winery tours...).

Using Team Johnson's existing logo and color scheme, we developed a clean, contemporary look to appeal to partiers, families, and corporate executives.

The home page serves as an “index” to provide provide easy access to all pages, but most prospective clients arrive at an individual page after a Google search. Careful attention to SEO boosts organic search results, and thoroughly researched Google Adwords link leads to specific pages.

Open Graph images for every page make it easy to share a specific page on Facebook or Twitter.

Social Proof in the form of testimonials from previous clients is matched to the services described on each page.
