John B. “Skip” Covan
Our President, Skip, is a well-known web designer in the Mobile area. His artistic background and his desire to bring results to our customers’ businesses are key elements of Magnolia Media’s success. Skip has 11 years of experience in the web design arena, including e-commerce and database development. He has always had the motivation to own his own website design company providing southern hospitality and excellent websites to customers who need a company they can trust. Skip was previously the first webmaster for The University of Mobile (while he attended school) and also a leading web developer at TeleVox designing dental and orthodontic websites. Now, he designs websites related to any industry (from home builders, to restaurants, to tanning salons) and has not found a company that he could not provide a perfect design for.
First impressions are as important online as they are offline. If you’d like visitors to your website to see you as a professional company, a major factor will be the design of your site. A template website will portray the image that you are like the average company, but a custom website will set your web presence apart from the crowd. Custom design means that your website is built starting from scratch to project the exact look and feel that you want it to project.
At Magnolia Media, we feel very strongly about SEO being a part of every website that we design. Search engines play a huge role in a website’s success. With the growth of the World Wide Web, search engines are very helpful to internet users for finding information they are in need of. For a website that is not search engine optimized, it is very hard to be found and displayed in the results of a Google, Yahoo, or Bing search. This means, if your competitor is optimized for search engines, then they will be found and you will not.
At Magnolia Media, we provide website and email hosting for a minimal monthly fee. If you are interested in transferring your hosting to a less expensive or more reliable company, call us at 251.259.2423 and we would love to discuss this with you further.
We not only design amazing logos but business cards, brochures, fliers and much more! Please feel free to check out our portfolio for samples of our work!
Our quality and speed has established us as the predominant source for full color, thermography and general offset printing in the Gulf region.
Our delivery time for custom stamps is second to none. Our self-inked and pre-inked stamps are delivered in 24 hours with few exceptions.
If you are looking for a new website design, and need photos of your company or products for your site, Magnolia Media does provide professional digital photography for local customers. If you are in the area, and would rather have professional digital photos taken than to do them yourself, and would rather not pay a photographer to come to your location, then we’d be glad to come to your location and take photos to place on your website. We have a great eye for photography and a professional digital camera that will provide excellent pictures to project the image of your company that you desire.
What Our Customers Have To Say…
- Palomar Christian Conference Center
Magnolia Media is amazing. I contacted them about flash design, and they were able to take my ideas and turn them into reality. Magnolia Media's customer service and turnover time is remarkable. I had the files I needed within 24 hours of payment! I highly recommend Magnolia Media to anyone looking for professional media or marketing services.
- iTan Resort
"I was very impressed with the website Magnolia Media designed for my salon. I could not ask for better service, and quality. After asking for a major change and several minor changes to my site, Magnolia Media was only too happy to perform it in order to make it the 'perfect' website for my company. The enthusiasm displayed by Skip and of Magnolia Media led to a site that actually exceeded my expectations. Thank you Magnolia Media!"

Other web designers could not get our site up and ready when we needed it done- which was less than a week- and their prices were too high. Magnolia Media accommodated us with our rush to develop and publish our site. It was up and running in less than half the time it should have taken.
The design and customer service were and are wonderful. I feel that we were listened to and given exactly what we wanted in our site. Jazzmin and Skip have been so accommodating and wonderful to work with.
What I really like the most about my new website that it is perfect for our company and what we were striving to put out to our customers. We also like the idea of using a local business that we can speak to personally when needed.
- Cupit Signs
We were very pleased with the turnaround time and professionalism of the job. I think our site was up within 3 weeks of the acceptance of the proposal. Having sold professional websites before, I was astounded with the speed of the work.
Service really is Magnolia Media’s differentiator. Many businesses give that lip service, but it is certainly true of Skip’s dedication to providing EXACTLY what we wanted to accomplish with the site. There are always the “little things” that you tend to miss, and Magnolia Media was there at every turn to provide the tweaks necessary for true completion of our site.
Obviously we love the service, but the other factor that we tend to tell people about is your willingness to work with us with OUR concepts. The initial idea Skip went with spurred us to where we are now, and our site, we hope, communicates EXACTLY who we are—just good ol, down-home people who want to make signs for folks.
More than an amazingly talented designer, Skip is flexible enough to truly work with his clients, regardless of their backgrounds. The very best thing about Magnolia Media is that at no time have I ever felt like anything less than your most important client at any given time. That's true service.
- It’s Not Just Scrap
I just wanted to thank you both for the great job in designing our website. We love it!
Not only did you do an incredible job on the site, but you had us up and running in record time. In addition, your monthly service (updating) has been great. Thanks for a job well done. We appreciate all your hard work and will call you with any other needs we may have.
- From Sunshine To God ShineDebra
"Hello There Skip,
I love you so much =) and I thank you for putting together my own new “web site”. It is simply beautiful. More importantly I have sold more books then ever =) . . . and my personal calendar is just filled with speaking engagements. I appreciate all your superb detailing and care you have put into creating such a grand web site =). It reflects my thoughts and ideas and you didn’t take anything away from what I believe. I cried when I first saw it all even before reading it. Thanks for your excellence =)."

Before working with Magnolia Media, my business e-mail accounts were troublesome. Three different accounts to manage was wasting my time. Magnolia Media organized my e-mail into an easy one step process. They created my business website in a timely, professional manner, and still continue to maintain it for me.
These people are design geniuses. Whenever I need my site updated, I contact them and within 24 hours it is complete. I am amazed at the professionalism this company portrays in all areas of their business!
- The Ivy Cottage
Prior to working with Skip and Katie, I wanted to have a website for my store, but I had no time to actually design and create a website. The Covans sketched a design plan which I edited and approved. Then they created the website, asking for my input all along.
I was amazed how quickly they were able to go from nothing to a live website! I just wish I had met them earlier!
Magnolia Media really comes through with their promises!
- Black Belt Designs
The turnaround time of the site development was excellent! I also feel the customer service from Magnolia Media should be the standard for all companies. Their technical skills were more than adequate to accomplish the look I wanted. Additionally they worked with me to achieve the look I desired.
The aspect I like most about Magnolia Media is their patience and willingness to work with the customer.
- Innovative Financial SolutionsEthan D.
I am writing this letter to inform the reader of my experience with Magnolia Media. I am not what you would call computer savvy and just do not have the time to set up and manage a full scale website. I am ever further challenged when it comes to website layout and design.
Skip has been a pleasure to work with. They have been available to make changes to my website several times over the last few months of trying to piece my new website together. Skip has made numerous suggestions to help me maximize my website usability.
I can recommend their service without reservation! If you have any questions about my experience, please do not hesitate to call me.
- Gulf Shores SteamerJeff P.
"I had been having a lack of response for updates and creativity in design from my previous web designer. Since we chose Magnolia Media, we have received the best design and best service. They are very prompt with their site development and I really enjoyed the one on one meetings that led to a site designed for our business."
- Grace Bible ChurchAndrew
"As a church, we rely on word of mouth and our location as the primary avenues by which our ministry is publicized. People have many questions when looking for a church, and getting sufficient, accurate information to those who had interest was always a difficulty.
The website designed by Magnolia Media has now given us a great solution."
Magnolia Media wasted no time from our meeting to the launch of the site.
The design was more than I had hoped for, and I am pleased to have it represent our ministry. The customer service is great. In the process of the construction of the site communication between Magnolia Media and myself was more than adequate.
Professional Simplicity. That is what I like most about the website designed by Magnolia Media. I have a saying at our church, “Excellence without Extravagance.” I believe that the website contains much information, and yet the overall impression is simple and inviting.

- NewLife Counseling Centers Inc.Richard
"I chose Magnolia Media from the recommendation of a friend who told me what excellent services he provided. I was somewhat skeptical about using a web design company but that all disappeared after working with Skip and seeing the end result. I am very pleased and would highly recommend his services."
- Criterion ControlsEddie Sutton - Owner
"My company has worked with Magnolia Media for several years and have recently launched our completely revamped website and couldn't be any happier with the way the site turned out. They recreated and transformed the website into a modern and incredibly attractive site. We are extremely pleased and will continue our relationship moving forward with other innovative marketing ideas."
- Frazer Greene Upchurch & Baker, LLCPatty R.
"I started working for FGUB three years ago; the website was already in place. I have worked with Skip on several changes with the website over the last three years. Skip is very pleasant to work with! Any changes or problems I may be having he normally completes within the hour. I would recommend Skip and Magnolia Media to anyone looking for a website company."
- RCI ElectricTina Taylor - Owner
"While searching for our website designer I ran across Magnolia Media. I was specifically looking for someone who could design a visually attractive site without needless fluff that a lot of websites contain today. In addition, I wanted it to be very user friendly. I am a perfectionist and wanted things to be perfect. Magnolia Media met all of my expectations!"
- Bell & CompanyDan Wilkins
"Skip has been great to work with and the quality of work he produces is second to none. I use them for all web and IT advertising."
- Sunnylamd SatsumaElizabeth Koch

- ACS Professional InvestigationsSteve
“I first got to know Skip with Magnolia Media when he developed and launched our first website over 15 years ago, and he has been our go-to guy for several additional websites for us over the years. Skip understands exactly what a project is all about from the outset, and how to get it done quickly and effectively. I would recommend Skip and Magnolia Media for all your website development, email and hosting needs.”
- Xtreme Turf Lawn Care TestimonialTodd
"Ok where do I start! I have been through three web guys before I found Skip and boy o boy I'm glad I found him! Skip does what he says he is going to do. Skip returns calls. Skip returns text. Skip returns emails. I wanted someone to help me grow my business and I found him. My only regret is I wished I found him from day one. Skip cleaned up my existing website and I couldn't be more happy. Google web design Mobile Al and you will find magnolia media at the top of the first page of Google. Skip has skills! I highly recommend him!!"
