GBM Marketing recently completed the development of the new ecommerce web site for Growers First Coffee, a Newport Beach, California based coffee importer with a socially responsible mission. The web site's URL is

The web site features a unique and colorful graphic design, a very easy to use navigation scheme, an ecommerce store and some interesting social networking tools throughout. Visitors have complimented Grower's First on the progressive design that features profiles of each coffee farmer, informative videos and a storefront that makes it simple to buy one or several bags of coffee and support the cause.

"After considering many content management systems (CMS) we elected to use the latest release of Joomla to develop the back end of the Grower's First site. Grower's management team specifically requested a web site that would empower its in-house marketing team to publish content such as videos, blog feeds and articles without the need for time-consuming and costly outside assistance. That's precisely what we developed for them and Joomla 1.7 made this task possible" stated Matt Banes, GBM Marketing's Senior Partner and Co-Founder.

GBM Marketing has been developing web sites and providing online marketing services including search engine optimization and lead generation since 1998. The firm typically works with companies involved in design, modular construction, green building and building operations but on occasion will work outside of its target markets. Grower's First Coffee is a good example of the firm’s creative ability to think and work "outside the box".
