Stop Breathe Focus

Case Study Type: Custom website design, website development, and ExpressionEngine CMS integration
Overview: How we helped an author spread the word about her new book

Colorado author book website screenshotAcclaimed counselor Mary Augustyn developed a method that allows people to manage their behavior and get amazing results. She wrote a book called Stop Breathe Focus that detailed her method and techniques, then asked us to build a website promoting the book.

Followbright worked closely with Mary in designing and developing a bright, upbeat website that reflected her energy, generated excitement about her book, and allowed visitors to purchase Mary's products straight from the site.

Mary's website uses ExpressionEngine as its Content Management System, giving her complete control over all of the content in her website. She never needs to ask us (or anyone else) to make changes or updates to her site (though we're always here to provide support and assistance if the need arises).

Months after her site went live, Mary wrote: "Thank you for making certain that I fully understood the operations of the website and training me to do things for myself. And thank you for not forgetting about me after my site was completed and I was on my own."

Today, Mary is thrilled that she has people from all over the world purchasing her book through her website.


The Stop Breathe Focus website's design was so unique and cutting-edge when the site was initially launched in 2008 that it was featured in all of the following online galleries:

Mary Augustyn, book authorI am so pleased with my website! It is exactly what I had hoped for; it is beautiful, conveys the feelings of warmth, hope, and vitality, it's easy to navigate, and is so very tasteful.  It's also a wonderful online tool to enhance the sale of my book.
