An Old Brand in a New Era
Rather than pack up, Franz Gerschwhiler doubled down!
After 50 years of operating in Tecumseh, MI the airport owner that Skydive Tecumseh operated from decided that he’d had enough of skydiving on the property. A long and arduous legal battle ensued that Franz eventually lost. Exhausted, but more determined than ever, Franz purchased the airport property in Napoleon, Michigan and created Skydive Tecumseh 2.0.
If you haven’t been to this DZ, then you’re missing out on one of the top five dropzones in the country! It has to be one of the best-kept skydiving secrets in the US with its massive landing area, multi-million dollar hangar, amazing RV park, training rooms, beautifully-clean bathrooms, and even laundry facilities! This isn’t so much a dropzone as it is a skydiver’s paradise in the midwest.
Being that Franz is an internet savvy whiz (he’s the creator of Burble Software), we were honored that DropZone Marketing was his first choice for web design.
Franz valued that we speak the language of skydiving; he wouldn’t need to spend time educating us on the nuances of the sport (like what AFF is) which allowed for less hand-holding and more time to prepare for the upcoming season as a DZO.
The Challenge – Be Beautiful, Be Optimized!
Franz approached us for a new website shortly after the new year with a challenge – create a new website and have it completely ready for the beginning of the 2016 season – it needed to be done quickly, be completely turnkey (have it optimized for SEO was a major priority) and re-write much of the page copy. Challenge accepted as this is where we excel!
The end result: a happy DZO who felt confident trusting us to leave the project in our hands and allowing us to run with it so he could focus on Burble and prep for a new season.
We’re proud of the end result and feel honored to have an ongoing relationship with Skydive Tecumseh in the form of Google Ads management, ongoing SEO, social media management, blog content development, and reputation management.
