Local Business Spotlight / Valpo Designer Desserts

designerdesserts

We live in an area where quaint shops and restaurants are bountiful. There are a number of coffee shops, bakeries, and ice cream parlors. They all thrive because they each have their own specialties, but most importantly, they treat their customers like family.

On Jayden’s 5th birthday, we took him for cupcakes at Designer Desserts. We felt right at home as we walked into the whimsical little place with a side of quirk. The staff was very nice. One lady in particular stood out from the rest. She seemed to be the head mama in charge, welcoming us in, and showing us the specials. She pulled out her iPhone and showed us the baker’s latest custom order; gorgeous peacock cupcakes.

After ordering our cupcakes, we sat down to enjoy them. She came over to play with Jaxon and also offered Jayden a free cupcake to take home since it was his birthday. Her personality was purely sweeter than the cupcakes.

To complement the bakery’s great atmosphere and hospitality, they also have a thoroughly done website making it even easier to share their business with locals. The icing on the cupcake! In this digital era, having a website makes it even easier to benefit from word-of-mouth marketing. Designer Desserts have all their basis covered and that’s what makes them one of our favorite local business.

Unfortunately, not all local businesses are aware of the importance of having a website. They suffer from what Go Daddy calls, No WebSitis. To fight the plague of #NoWebsitis, Go Daddy is currently awarding websites to ten local small businesses. You can nominate them to enter the contest or vote for your favorite.You could also win a $50 Visa Gift for nominating them. Sweeeeet.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Go Daddy. The opinions and text are all mine.

    OMG, I think I’ve been to that place! Did they have a different set up a few years ago? My fave cupcake place in the world. To bad it’s hundreds of miles away.
