Website Helps Families Preserve Memories

Saving stories from "back in my day"

Kate Gingold 0 3580 Article rating: No rating
Knowing from personal experience how special it is to share a loved one's memories, Susan Schwartz started Back in My Day Videos to record those stories before they are lost forever. Her new website lets families check out the process for filming including introductions to the staff, video samples and pricing. The stroll down memory lane is a blast for the "star" of the film and the professional quality video becomes a treasured keepsake for the rest of the family. The Sprocket team really enjoyed working on this heart-warming project!

Every website should have some kind of traffic measurement, and many websites actually do! Google Analytics is a popular tool because it’s free to install and it offers incredible insight into your web traffic. But if you never look at the reports or can’t figure out what they’re telling you, Analytics can’t help you.
