Hello, my name is Janna Blaydes; owner of Gruseldog Design, a web site and software development company. We currently designed and host sites for the Chicago, Maryland, North Carolina, East Florida, Phoenix, and the Montana Chapter. I would just like to take this opportunity to let you know a little bit about my company and what we can offer you as an Appraisal Institute Chapter.

When it comes to creating a new site for you, rebuilding your current one, or helping you set up one of National’s templates, we understand the balance between upholding the Appraisal Institute’s professional image while still promoting your individuality as a Chapter.

Having a site that can be updated with our administrative features allows you to keep the site current with reliable information and links for your members. Easy-to-use forms will allow authorized users to update content such as: recent news articles, education schedule, industry resources, messages from the president, and events and event descriptions. Administrative options can be extended to any area of the site and we offer maintenance packages as well.

We offer a diverse range of features including mass emailing (for a one-time fee). To help to help keep members informed about up coming courses, seminars, and events. Our mailer allow you to send custom newsletters and/or announcements to specific mailing lists. We also offer RSS feeds, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and many other setups to help keep you updated with current technolgy. 30 second video clips of seminars or guest speakers can also make your Chapter a hit on YouTube! Contact us to learn more about how we can get your Chapter exposed!

Please visit our portfolio and service page to view for a complete list of what we can offer. If you have any questions or would like a fee quote and proposal, please contact me at your convenience.
