Having a website means different things to different people. That’s why we seek to understand what your needs are and provide you, the client, with practical solutions with stated goals, budgets and dreams in mind. How we tackle each project and ultimately manage it depends on the scope of the project at hand. To that end, before we commence, a scope of practice will be clearly defined and mutually agreed upon and then a well thought-out price estimate will be provided with different pricing options if possible. Once the scope and budget are approved we’ll get to work. Each step of the way we’ll thoughtfully consult and advise on the industry best practices and do everything in our power to help you reach your marketing and technology goals.
Simple Website Design
One method of designing a website is to build a simple site with relevant content that is consistent with your brand image. A simple and affordable approach to getting a website up and running does not limit your ability to enhance, develop and improve on it in the future. Quite to the contrary actually. Simple Sites will include:
Branded design to fit your image
Branded emails so you can communicate with your clients professionally
Social Marketing (facebook, twitter, etc.) plug-ins so you can connect with your networks easily
Email marketing integration to help you build your email database for cost effective marketing.
Simple Contact form(s) allow customers a streamlined path to submit inquires that won’t clog your in-box with spam
Custom Web Development
Websites can be places for people to “data dump” business ideas and solutions- blah! However a dynamic website built with “Web 2.0” functionality can help businesses meet or exceed their revenue goals by creating a unique design and custom functionality to meet your customer’s needs. If this sounds like what you’re after and you think you’ll need technology to help you achieve your 21st Century business goals then this solution is for you. Custom sites will include:
- Branded design to fit your image
- Branded emails so you can communicate with your clients professionally
- Social Marketing (facebook, twitter, etc.) plug-ins so you can connect with your networks easily
- Email marketing integration to help you build your email database for cost effective marketing.
- Complex Contact form(s) allow customers a streamlined path to submit inquires that won’t clog your in-box with spam and can require complex coding depending on your needs
- Content migration
- Image slide shows on each/any page and in the header
- Dynamic content management for content lists or views
- Blogs, forums, and feeds
- Shopping cart integration or customization
- System Training
Content Management Systems
You can combine all of the above and opt for a website that adds the capability for a lay-person to load and edit the copy on their own website. These robust Content Management Systems (CMS) can provide endless options for businesses who have a person on staff who can manage the website after the design is complete. I recommend CMS to any client who sees their website as a constantly evolving project, and for businesses who have a more “do it yourself” philosophy. The CMS option also allows for paid maintenance workers to be more efficient in making periodic changes as needed on your behalf which helps your dollars go further.
