Williamstown, MA (PRWEB) March 12, 2013 — Local web agency Berkshire Direct recently completed and launched a new website for Cord Master Engineering and Meehan Electronics Corporation. You can view the new site live at http://www.mec-cme.com.
“Back in 2010, we originally built two separate sites for these two closely-related businesses, but it was time for a redesign and an upgrade in terms of look/feel and capabilities,” said Allen Jezouit, owner of Berkshire Direct. “So much has changed in terms of what’s achievable on small business budgets for new, improved websites in just 3 years. It is incredible how far WordPress – and all of the plugins and themes available – have come.”
“Berkshire Direct did a great job on the project. They took the time to understand our needs – both for today and for the future – and built us a great looking site. We can’t wait for new and potential customers to see it,” said Qurban Khalsa, COO of MEC-CME, Inc.

Williamstown, MA (January 4, 2012) – Local web agency Berkshire Direct has had several clients receive a document that looks like an invoice from a company called “DNS Services” requesting an annual fee. This pseudo-invoice is a scam and should not be paid. The invoice purports to be for “domain management services” related to clients’ domain names. It appears to be a broad-based program because Berkshire Direct clients both locally and from as far away as Colorado received the fake invoices this week.
The invoice appears very authentic, with an account number and very specific company information including owner’s name, business address and business’ domain name. It also has a detached portion to return with a payment. In reality, the invoice is an offer and in the fine print it reads, “This is a solicitation for the order of goods or services, or both, and not a bill, invoice, or statement of the account due. You are under no obligation to make any payments…unless you accept this offer.”
“We’re in the web business and we deal with a lot of small businesses whose owner also wears the ‘IT Manager’ or ‘web master’ hat. We know how many hours small business owners work and how tired they might be when they are paying their bills late one night … you get the picture,” said Berkshire Direct’s owner, Allen Jezouit. “This type of mailing preys upon some small percentage who will write that check for $65 without even really looking too deeply into it because ‘DNS Services’ sounds official and they don’t really remember who they got their domain from originally anyway. Some part of the internet are still the wild, wild west … caveat emptor can be a full contact sport.”

It just dawned on me that VegKitchen.com went live in January, 1996 — seventeen years ago, and ancient history in internet terms. Of course, it started small, but that’s how things usually start, right? And it has changed and grown ever since. I remember chatting with Mollie Katzen back then, comparing notes, as we seemed to be among the first food authors to go online with our own sites. We marveled at the prospect of having 500 visitors per day; now VegKitchen receives more than 5,000 visitors per day on average, and much higher in the fall due to the popularity of the vegan Thanksgiving area. The numbers continue to mount as interest in healthy, plant-based eating grows.
The biggest change to VegKitchen happened in November 2010, when we switched to the WordPress platform and went from vegetarian to vegan (lagging way behind my actual lifestyle change, as I had gone vegan in 2001). Not that I’m doing a commercial for WordPress, but it made it so much easier to grow the site rapidly and edit at will. We also began incorporating a lot more contributors from the food world, who share articles and recipes on the site, adding other voices to this fast-growing area. And by the way, when I say “we,” I’m basically referring to myself, my webmaster Allen Jezouit at Berkshire Direct, and my assistant, Rachael Braun, who tends to the site almost daily. I thank them for their contributions to VegKitchen’s recent growth.
VegKitchen is but one of three major careers I juggle simultaneously — the others include writing cookbooks and other non-fiction; and visual art (mostly text-driven — I guess I really like words!). It has become a great way to connect with others in the healthy food and vegan communities, and a platform for sharing information that people are seeking these days. It still boggles my mind that VegKitchen is seventeen, and I look forward to celebrating twenty years online in just three years from now.
