Spotlight: Dish It Out Boston

Posted by Adam Pieniazek | Spotlight | October 8th, 2009

We’re unveiling a new feature here called Spotlight. The Spotlight category will shine the light on some of the work we’ve done across the web. We’re thinking it’s a good way to introduce you to some of our work while we get a portfolio section integrated into our new design. We’ll also keep the Spotlight feature once a portfolio is up and running as it’s a nice way to give additional information on each project. First up in the Spotlight is Dish It Out Boston!

Dish It Out Landing Page

Dish It Out approached us for advice on social media and Search Engine Optimization for a site yet to launch. The first thing we noticed was that their site did not resolve to the domain name. Instead when you punched in that domain, it forwarded you to a mac web space area landing page. Within a day of contacting us, we set up hosting to resolve the domain name to, installed a wordpress installation and created a unique landing page with a Boston backdrop. Doing so allowed Dish It Out to start acquiring links and building a subscriber list to help with their future launch.

Here’s a look at the Dish It Out pre-launch landing page:

  2. Adam,

    Great idea to profile your work. Sounds like another great organization for Boston.

    One question: Last week at the unConference in the famous Scott Kirsner – Tim Rowe “TurboCharging” event, one of the organizations listed was Bettina’s Women CEO organization that was apparently informal enough to not have a name. I don’t know if they’re the same group…but if not, they should probably be aware of each other so they can collaborate or be complimentary to one another.


  3. Not the same group, but I’ll let Catherine, who runs Dish It Out know about Bettina’s group. Thanks Jason!

  4. Oooh, good find Jason!
