TODAY Show Welcomes Spectruss Client, PurrPacks

The result of an effective marketing strategy

PurrPacks knew their box of treats and toys for furry friends was a new trend that would captivate the eyes of many cat lovers. But, when the NBC TODAY show reached out to them to be featured alongside Kathie Lee and Hoda as a creative subscription idea, they were astonished.


How did PurrPacks attract this medium?


PurrPacks is a monthly subscription box of toys, treats, and fun for cats. Buyers can select from three different sizes, personalize treat flavors, and color preference. Also, 10% of all their retail subscription profits go to animal shelters.

Spectruss joined the excitement and planned to ignite the brand with a fresh new identity and creative marketing solutions to make a mark within this industry. We based our approach on what was best for PurrPacks, like we do all our clients. Our team knew we had to expand the marketing efforts in order to promote this specific brand and see a conversion increase. So, in addition to web design, social media management, email campaigns, and graphic design, we reached out to influencers.

Incorporating influencer marketing into our overall strategy positioned PurrPacks in front of their target audience’s trusted sources of information. Influencers are across different types of platforms like blogging, vlogging, social media, podcasts, etc. They typically do have a high number of followers, but that is not their purpose. This type of person or reviewer has the power to influence someone’s decision making process.

As a result, Spectruss created an opportunity to network with a number enthusiastic parties and developed relationships with multiple influencers. Thus opening the door to a circle of interest that can potentially reach other mediums, like the TODAY Show.

Modern Real Estate Website Now Live – The Lea Team

Spectruss is excited to release the modern real estate website for Chattanooga based realty company, The Lea Team. Built on a WordPress content management system, we utilized custom plugins and custom design to build a one-of-a-kind realty website that has not been seen before.

The Lea Team’s website uses full screen video embedded from their YouTube channel and offers their visitors the ability to search the full MLS, or to view the featured listings offered by The Lea Team. All pages are editable in WordPress so The Lea Team’s marketing department can add and edit content at anytime, from any device.

With the constant increase in devices and various screen sizes, fixed width websites are no longer acceptable. With that said, we built The Lea Team realty website to be fully responsive for mobile, tablet and desktop devices, without having a separate website for each. This helps increase search engine optimization and eliminates any problems with duplicate url structures and bad linking.

CityScope magazine invites you to wear that wedding, prom, bridesmaid dress, or any old thing that’s been taking up residence in your closet, and join us in supporting women in Chattanooga with a bunch of other great women!

Each year the fundraiser benefits a different charity.

Website Launch : TechTown, Innovation for Education

Spectruss is excited to launch TechTown’s new website this week! TechTown had a very successful Summer at their newly built location in Downtown Chattanooga and decided it was time to update their website design. The new website will open with a full screen, eye-catching video, made by Creative Insomniac. From their, the visitor will be able to scroll into the website and take a virtual tour, purchase passes, or fill out a registration form for their child.

Techtown wanted an easy-to-use interface for managing content, products, and forms on their website. So, Spectruss developed the website on a custom built WordPress platform, allowing them to manage all aspects of their web presence.

With fall camps coming up soon for Techtown, the timeline for this project was very tight. In fact, Spectruss designed and developed the responsive website in two and a half weeks. Not bad for a fully customized, e-commerce website!

The new website is set to launch this week, so be sure to check it out!

Spectruss is passionate about education. We are always interested in working with innovative institutions that can help bring the skills we rely on to the youth of Chattanooga, Atlanta, the southeast  or the nation for that matter. TechTown is a fantastic institute and working not her project was a real treat for us.

Telling a story is essential behind the success of a brand. For each business, there is a unique story to tell – whether it is from the humble beginnings from which you began, the hardships you faced and conquered, or the idea you turned from nothing to something – these stories bring your customers into your story, they create loyalty and they create meaning. Spectruss can help you with this.

A Quick Look at the Start of Spectruss

Spectruss as we know it today started as a goal inside of a garage, by a person who understood web design, and media. It started as a demo reel of sorts, with hints of what you need, but not the full picture yet. It took time, and hard work – but so does anything that is worth creating. From that hard work, Spectruss went from a humble local web design shop, to a Chattanooga powerhouse, then expanding into Atlanta, or to Kentucky, or the entire southeast. Today it operates nationwide, but it started with a simple idea, and the desire to learn, grow and perfect.
