Web Design Services
Great website design has many pieces to the puzzle - project management, visual design, programming, quality assurance, etc - they are all very important. After the project is complete, then you need to make sure that your SEO and social media are effective. I make sure the right people are on the project to do a great job - on time, on budget, and on par with what you want and expect.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SEM (Search Engine Marketing) are key components to making sure your website has a great ROI (return on investment). Build it, and they will come (paraphrased) is NOT the position you want to take. You can read more about why SEO is so crucial to your site's success here.
Social Media Marketing
You may not have a Facebook, Instagram, etc., account - but your prospective clients and customers do, and sometimes that's their main source of information on the web. You don't have to have a presence on every social network, but let's figure out where you can maximize your budget for website success. Check out the details of our social media monthly retainer.
It's 2017, and just about everyone uses the web on their phone, tablet, or other mobile device. Are you happy with how your site looks on a mobile device? I can (re)design your website so that it is mobile friendly - to your eyes and to the search engines like Google, Bing, and others.
Front End Programming
Front end website design is the part of your website that the public sees - the page layout, colors, styles, look & feel, etc. I use the latest technology to display your site properly - technologies likes Bootstrap, HTML 5, SVG formatted graphics, and more.
Back End Programming
Back end website programming is the part that the public does NOT see - the database connections, the programming that pulls in content from various API feeds, a Content Management System that allows you to maintain your website's content, etc. Not every site requires a back end, but when it does, I consider everything before developing the back end or using an "out of the box" solution.
Most e-commerce websites use an "out of the box" solution to make their website function properly. I can help you decide to use a third party vendor's website for your transactions or actually building a website around a software solution. I also help non-profits with their fund raising capabilities.
Email Design & Development
GetResponse, MailChimp, Constant Contact, and other services like those make sending email very easy and affordable for many businesses. But what about the content of your email? Are you using email to market your business or just stay in touch with your current clients & customers? Do your emails look great and work well on all devices? I can help you with your email marketing, produce the emails for you, and make sure they look great.
Visual Design is not as simple as just throwing some colors onto a PhotoShop layer and callng it a day. I will work with your marketing department to make sure your website, logo, email piece, etc matches your current marketing plan.
Now that Google is no longer selling "ad-free" custom search engines, you need to make sure your website has a search engine that will only show your site's content - not ads for your competitors. Contact me today to develop a search engine just for your site.
