Here at ICND, we want to thank all the Veterans for their service. We want to especially thank one of our own. Joe Bonselaar works in the SEO department as one of our SEO Specialists.

May 2019 marks InterCoastal Net Designs’ 20th year in business and much of our success can be attributed to our humble beginnings with Brandon Sauls at the helm. We recently sat down with Brandon to discuss where ICND is today, where we plan to go and how it all began with a fishing charter website. We live & breathe the tourism industry with our headquarters in the small beach community of Ocean Isle Beach, NC – making us well suited to understand our client’s business model and helping them see success in the vacation rental and tourism industries.
More than 300 players participated in the championships this year. Divisions are grouped by age and competition level.

VRMA Annual was held in San Diego this year from October 26th-29th. The ICND team was there in full force, with SEO Director Conrad O’Connell, Social Media Director David Hutnik and ICND President Brandon Sauls taking the 6,000 plus mile round trip journey to VRMA.
During the conference, we were demoing our newest, latest greatest booking engine integration featured in our most recent vacation rental website launch. We heard from tons of attendees that the features built into were “downright amazing”, “truly innovative”, and even “F*!^ing AWESOME!”. More brainstorming sessions and early morning programming went on to continue developing this so if you haven’t had the chance to check it out, let us know and we’d be glad to show you.

Help us in giving Caitlin Negethon a HUGE congratulations! If you’ve called up to ICND with any questions or support issues in the last 9 months, there’s a really good chance that you had a friendly voice on the other end and her name is Caitlin. Well, in her spare time, she is a ferocious tennis player and very well known in the tennis community.
