While the CarNewsCafe team liked the old sites's design, they are much happier with they way the new site looks. Initial response from fans and readers of the auto magazine have all been positive.
The design was carried out by the Florida-based web development firm Grip’d to be personalized to CarNewsCafe.com. The new theme was built by Grip’d for improved speed, user experience, and search engine optimization (SEO). Further enhancements and details for the site were done by the CarNewsCafe team, aiming for a better experience for the reader. In addition, new, faster, more reliable hosting was also acquired to speed performance and improve the visitor’s experience when accessing the latest in automotive news and commentary.
“We wanted the site to be visually appealing, but easily-accessible for its main purpose: lending access to information,”
“We approach our audience in three ways,” added Nicolas Zart, one of the senior editors and electric vehicle expert. “Our weekly podcast, active YouTube video channel, interactive social media presence, and three-pronged focus on the automotive industry by our diverse team all come together to give full-spectrum access to the reader.”.
“The new design will help us better connect with our audience, especially since people can read our site on their smartphones.”
Along with the new theme, the auto magazine is holding giveaways to celebrate the occasion for the next few weeks. Prizes will be all automotive themed and range from supercar posters to slick USB drives which you can’t buy in stores. Fans and readers that want to win auto prizes are encouraged to follow CarNewsCafe’
