WEB DESIGN & MARKETING SERVICES
Business websites are arguably the most important form of advertising you need online. With the new Google “rules” a website design that is mobile ready is no longer just a luxury, it’s a need.
We offer fully responsive custom website design. This means that no matter what screen your customers are viewing your site on, it will look beautiful. Having a site that can be found means nothing if it is hard to navigate or customers are put off by a poorly designed site. We aren’t just developers here, we are artists. We create sites that are visually appealing, and easy to navigate.
Maybe you’re thinking about having your first one made, or you just need a new better one. In any case you should know at least some of the basics about web design.
First of all, let’s face it the website is the core of your online marketing activities. If you look at all the marketing channels and techniques, what they actually do is bring visitors to your
website and the main purpose of the website is turning these visitors into customers. In marketing terms this is called conversion. A bad website will basically cause you to waste money on other marketing methods because you don’t need more visitors if you can’t turn them into customers. So the better your website is, the more visitors are converted into your customers. And it doesn’t really matter whether you sell consumer products online, provide local services, or build houses.
Many people in the industry call themselves web designers but they really are just a bunch of geeks with some basic coding knowledge. Of course, without much planning they will quickly create a website for you with lots of information, photos, & contacts. But the question is, is that the way to turn the visitors into your customers, is that what you need? The answer is simple… NO! What you have to do is look for someone serious about web design.
Well that’s where we come in this is how we make websites by following this 7 phase web design process.
PHASE ONE: ANALYSIS
The first step is always about information gathering, identifying things like the website purpose, goals, and target audience.
PHASE TWO: PLANNING
A plan includes a definition of the site map structure and technologies that we’re about to use.
PHASE THREE: DESIGN
Not only do we focus on wireframe models and the visual style in this stage, but also on the usability of the user interface for the best possible user experience.
PHASE FOUR: CONTENT
Avery important part of the process is choosing the right text, photos, or videos all optimized not only for your visitors but also for search engines.
PHASE FIVE: DEVELOPMENT
Here, we actually create the website using the hypertext markup language and cascading style sheets with some help from databases and other technologies as well. If needed, our websites can be made accessible to mobile devices to
PHASE SIX: TESTING
We test all the technical features like coding, scripts, compatibility with major browsers, but we also ask ourselves if the website really fulfills its purpose.
PHASE SEVEN: DEPLOYMENT
After we launched the site, our job is definitely not done yet we always monitor what’s happening after the start, enabling us to fix any possible deficiencies. If you want we can also manage the future maintenance and updates for you.
As you have just seen, web design is a very complex process but we believe this is how websites should be done and our customers agree.

There are so many facets to social media setup and management. Is your Facebook page feeding to Twitter? Is your business registered on Google local? Did you forget about Bing and Yahoo? What is the best way to use Hashtags on Twitter? Are you using Hootsuite correctly?
This is just the tip of the iceberg, and all of this can be intimidating. However, not diving into social media and maintaining a presence there can not only cause you to miss out on tons of exposure and interaction from your fans, but could actually negatively affect your reputation. How many of your favorite artists have a Facebook page that hasn’t been updated in a month? How many popular new movies are released with no talk of them on Twitter?
