Our Story

Get Online Nola was born out of love for New Orleans and the businesses that make our city unique and economy grow. Bringing companies online and building a powerful digital presence is what we do best.

Process

We start with a strategy session to help guide your marketing efforts from the start. We can then work with you to understand what your company needs to grow in a digital world. Then we can build you the branding and digital marketing assets you need to power up for your business.

Experience

We have been creating custom websites in New Orleans for almost a decade. Along the way we have added digital marketing services to further aid your business, gaining our client’s new fans and ultimately increasing revenue.

Flexibility

We’re here to help; no matter your budget or digital know-how. Consulting, branding, and marketing services are just as needed in your tool-kit as a beautiful website. We can help guide you, or have us take the reigns and do it for you.

She has worked with big-name clients such as Nike, Dannon, & Dr. Pepper, but loves helping New Orleans business owners develop their brands, and establish a strong online presence.

A Little More About Wendy:

  • Favorite candy – I have a sweet tooth so that’s hard to narrow down, but chocolate always wins.
  • Favorite hobby – Yoga, I guess, but it’s more of a ritual than a hobby.
  • Best coffee in the city – Church Alley. So glad they moved to Mid City!
  • Beach, woods, or mountain – All 3, please. The best thing about living in Los Angeles was having all 3 within an hour’s drive.
  • Lot’s of apps or big entree – Family style so I don’t get menu envy.
  • Favorite New Orleans festival – Bayou Boogaloo ‘cause I can get there by canoe.
  • Favorite class in school – Yearbook. It was my first taste of graphic design.
  • Drink of choice – Americano in the morning, La Croix in the afternoon, red wine at night
  • Nintendo or Playstation – My childhood had a lot of Mario, Tetris, Duck Hunt, so Nintendo all the way. Remember renting Nintendo games from Blockbuster? Yeah ‘90s!

Leo Skovron

Web Developer

Web Developer

Leo started with Get Online NOLA in September, 2016. He started programming professionally in 2015, and picked up the skill by taking online coding courses.

A Little More About Leo:

  • Travel Bucket List – If I had to choose one place to visit before I die, I’d go to Japan.
  • 15 Minutes of Fame – I play bass in a band called Miss Mojo. My favorite musical moment is the first time I heard my music play on WWOZ.
  • Bar of choice – Maple Leaf for music, Bayou Beer Garden for Crawfish, Holy Ground for games, Pal’s lounge for a nightcap.
  • Mario Kart or Super Smash Bros – It really depends. I think that Mario Kart can really bring a group of people together, and I prefer it in social settings or with a less competitive group. Super Smash Bros, on the other hand, is not for messing around. Super Smash Bros can turn great friends into bitter rivals just as easily as it can form a bond between former enemies, and I never take an opportunity to meet in the Super Smash arena lightly.
  • Number one favorite food – Parasol’s Firecracker Shrimp po-boy with a frozen irish coffee on the side, followed by almond macaroons from Angelo Brocato’s.
