Usually the first step when building a website, a smart site design is one of the key elements in extending your companies visual branding to your online audience. Normally a three week process of back and forth review, establishing a solid site framework will allow you to build a website that can be extended and added upon for years to come
There are many different design styles online these days. I try and build websites that maintain a traditional elegance while at the same time stay up to date with today's modern web standards and best practices.
A good design will only take your website so far. Having a solid backend developed will provide your users the richest experience possible while browsing your site. Using Drupal, the open source content management system, my developers and I make sure that all of your sites content is optimized correctly to stay up to date and current with all of todays web standards and best pratices.
Based on your technical needs, we can customize a websites functionality and experience to meet the demands of almost any project. Our development standards combined with all the other services me and my team offers, allows for a stable product delivery that will provide a first class user experience for each of your websites visitors.
There is nothing worse than having a website built for you and then not having the ability to make any changes or create new content yourself. Every site I build is developed with the free content management system (CMS) Drupal. The CMS gives you all the tools you need to edit any piece of content or create as many pages as you want on your website. No software or downloads are necessary to control your CMS. Everything is controlled right on your web browser with a secure login to your site. Navigating and working the CMS is as user friendly of an experience as dealing with any other web based program, i.e. your web mail, Facebook, bank account, Ebay, etc. Controlling your website couldn't get any easier.
Besides having the freedoms and abilities to stay in control of your websites content, the CMS also gives you a variety of other tools necessary in maintaining a superior website.
Social Media Integration
Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are just a few of the social media outlets that are required these days to stay up to date and connected with your audience. Maintaining a presence in these domains will assure your message is correctly being distributed to all the social networks where today's web user is spending a majority of their time. Based on your projects profile I can consult with you on the most effective strategies that will gain you the strongest results across the web.
If you need to take online payments for products, services or donations I can develop the proper checkout solution for your needs. Based on the amount of sales you expect to process online, me and my team can construct for you either a fully customized shopping cart tailored exactly to your e-commerce expectations or we can install a more affordable solution using Google Checkout or Paypal integrations.
A fully customized shopping cart will allow for a checkout process that is tailored specifically to the rest of your websites experience and sensibilities. Having a custom cart developed will give your web users the confidence and assurance necessary when making transactions on your site.
If you don't expect a large amount transactions on your website or you would rather not invest in a fully customized shopping cart, having a Google Checkout or Paypal integration installed on your site will most likely accomplish your e-commerce needs.
If you need to foster an email presence with your audience, I can design custom html templates that will allow you to maintain the look and feel of your website.
I can also set you up with the correct email campaign programs that will allow you to consistently email as many contacts as needed while at the same time keeping you compliant with all the federal anti spam laws. Maintaining these proper protocols will ensure your emails are showing up in your contacts inbox and not their spam folder.
