Website Design

A website should be more than an informational dump and obligatory internet placeholder. We believe a site’s usefulness is vital, so we develop websites that serve individual and unique purposes. For each client, we build a unique website that professionally represents their brand while also focusing on the group of people who will be primarily visiting and using the site.

Beyond Style: We Emphasize Usefulness

What makes a website “good”? While there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution for marketing and web development, there are some core tenets to follow, such as responsive design and organizing and prioritizing content to be more useful for your target users.

Before we make the first <div> tag, we begin with photography and branding. We get to know you and your business, as well as the needs of your target users. Next, we put together a plan that includes details about the site’s structure and SEO tactics.

A good strategy is the foundation of our approach to developing professional-grade websites custom-tailored to your needs and case.

Our Full Web Design Approach

For each website we build, regardless of its goals and target users, we start with the same basic recipe of quality, functionality, and style. In addition to our ability to blend images and words into attractive and organized digital layouts, we also provide other services and special touches to bring web projects to life.

Professional Photography

We make our websites pop with actual photography of your business – it’s our secret sauce to stellar website design. Stock photos and low-quality cell phone photos stand out like a sore thumb and cheapen a website’s appeal. 

What’s more, we’ll send you copies of the photos so you can freely use them on social media and on other promotional materials.

Brand Style Development

We expand on your current branding to define your visual identity fully and establish consistency for your site’s appearance! We study your current logo’s fonts and colors and develop an in-depth visual identity that includes secondary colors, accent colors, and various fonts for titles and body text. If necessary, we’ll take your current logo and create an editable and scalable vector copy.

If you need a new logo, we happily offer bundling discounts on our services.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

We make your site easier for Google to index and understand, so it’s more likely to show up at the top of relevant search results! Our SEO services include page-by-page keyword research and development, meta description development, heading tag analysis, outbound/inbound linking, keyword distribution analysis/body copy optimization, and alt tag writing.

Facebook Live Chat Bubble

We make it easy for you to connect with curious visitors with a convenient live chat bubble on your site that connects directly to your Facebook Page’s Messenger. Offering a live chat bubble takes away the formality of filling out a form or calling when website visitors have questions. We integrate a live chat bubble that connects your visitors directly with your Facebook Page messages, so you don’t need an extra mobile app to respond instantly.

Lead Capture Strategy

How do we determine the information your website visitors need to make a buying decision? We draw on your experience because you know your industry and operations better than we do. We also take the time to research your industry from the perspective of web designers. What are national industry leaders doing with their web presence? Who are your buyers, and what makes them tick?

We can also help you develop and launch a drip campaign that hooks online leads and converts them into customers! Utilizing email marketing platforms like MailChimp, we’ll help you plan, develop, and launch a campaign that captures newsletter signups, offers free content, and sends a series of automatic follow-up emails meant to entice further action, such as contacting your sales department or purchasing a specific item from your online store.

Google Listing Optimization

Before we launch your new site, we use the information, positioning, and branding we develop for your site to optimize your Google My Business profile and improve your SEO! Your Google My Business profile is an essential piece of your digital marketing strategy. It also plays a crucial role in how people see and interact with your business in search results.

Using keywords and relevant copywriting we developed for your website, we’ll make sure your products/services are thoroughly described. We’ll also update the images of your storefront, products, and atmosphere. If you haven’t claimed your Google My Business listing, we’ll help you get that taken care of first.

Website Training

We’ll teach you and your staff how to update your new site! A website is a continually evolving marketing tool, which means it needs to be updated regularly.

We’ll host a two-hour training seminar via video chat to share our screens with you and your staff, explain how to operate the website, and answer any questions you have.

**Prefer having us host, maintain, and manage your site once it’s launched? We offer Website & Brand Management subscriptions, so you’ll know your site is in good hands and stays in good shape. For more details, check out our Subscriptions section or ask your account manager.

Website Refresh & Update

Do you already have a website, but it needs updating? We have experience accessing existing sites and updating technology and content, as well as migrating existing content from non-WordPress platforms.

If your website needs to be moved from your current server to another server, we can help you navigate the various considerations and do the heavy lifting to get your site situated in a new hosting environment, whether it’s on our server or another.Plus, to save you from being in the middle of two web companies’ technical conversations, we will deal directly with any other web company you’ve been using or will be using. Easy peasy.

Contact us so we can start evaluating your current site and provide you with an estimate.

Website Hosting & Management

We offer fully managed WordPress hosting, which means we take care of all of your website’s maintenance and support needs. Whether we’re building your new site or you’d like us to refresh and revitalize your existing one, we can keep it running perfectly.

Choosing a managed hosting solution like ours also means that you don’t have to worry about taking care of the many website software updates. Often, various updates for WordPress core, WooCommerce, and other plugins are released many times each month. Sometimes, these updates aren’t compatible and can negatively impact or crash a website. We take the time to test software updates before implementing them on our network. If something does happen to go wrong, we’ll already know about it and be able to take care of any issue right away.

When it comes to updating the content and products on your website, you have the option to keep us on-call to help or your team can be in charge of maintenance. Starting with our Fermion-level Premium Managed Hosting plan, we provide dedicated support for update requests. Need to update your store hours? Done. Need a new page with product specifications? We’ve got you. All you have to do is submit a support ticket with the details and attach any relevant files, and we’ll make sure your site is updated within 48 to 72 hours*.

Search Engine Optimization

When considering the advantages of investing in professional web development versus taking a cheaper alternative, search engine optimization (SEO) is one major differentiator. What is SEO? In short, it’s the process of fine-tuning your website so Google can more easily index your site and its pages for searches. In short, you want customers to find you when they search for your offering, and SEO is the key.

By taking the time to develop keywords and optimize structure and content, the sites we develop are more likely to show up at the top of relevant web searches because Google can index and “crawl” the site more easily. Additionally, by developing our sites in WordPress, we can inherently better optimize the sites we build. Click here for more info about WordPress and why we prefer it over other content management systems. Here is short list of some of the things we focus on when approaching search engine optimization:

Product Planning & Positioning

Back Links & Internal Linking

Meta Descriptions

Content Development

Alt Text

Domain Management

A common service we usually always end up providing our clients is domain management services. Aside from handling domain registration and annual renewals, we also help keep your Domain Name System (DNS) records updated (for example, adding MX records for custom email services or adding A records for subdomains and third-party apps).
