Using his 10-plus years of Internet marketing experience, Tom works with small and mediumsized businesses to produce sought-after results, including improved sales and reduced costs. “Everything I do is about improving business results,” Tom says. “A website must achieve the goals defined by the business and deliver a measurable return on investment.” He explained that Internet users might visit a website, but not take the desired action, such as purchasing, registering, or entering contact information. Tom designs websites and improves existing sites. “I can perform a complimentary analysis that will tell me about the health of a site and how it looks in terms of the search engines. Then I build a strategy to allow that site to work for the client. I can make just about anything work for any budget.” Tom Murphy Tom has been an information systems professional for 11 years.

It’s something Rosana Harms often hears about her new Franklin Lakes children’s clothing store, Stage Left Fashions. The entrepreneur and mom launched Stage Left in August of last year. “Having my own kids, I was always frustrated with the negative experience associated with purchasing children’s clothing,” said Harms. “The combination of low quality clothing from larger retailers combined with poor service drove Rosana Harms me crazy.” Harms recognized a terrific opportunity for launching a unique retail clothing store that featured critical elements the larger retailers ignored: quality, service, and experience. On the surface, the timing for opening a children’s clothing store last August was not great given the economic downturn. But Harms thinks the timing was actually beneficial. “While consumers have obviously cut back on overall spending over the last six months, what we have attracted are customers looking at return on investment much more closely,” commented Harms. “And given our focus on quality clothing combined with terrific client service and experience, we have had early success that will hopefully act as a springboard when the economy does turn around.” “The Stage Left Fashions experience goes way beyond the fabulous clothes,” said customer Mary Torres. “I can honestly say that it represents a bonding experience for my daughter and me, which is very unusual for a clothing retailer. We are planning her birthday party there next month!” Stage Left Fashions is located in the Franklin Crossing Shopping Center at 828 Franklin Avenue, Franklin Lakes. Store hours are 10-6 Monday through Saturday. Sundays and evening hours are reserved for birthday parties and other special events.
