Our journey began with web design. Over the 6 years we've been developing sites, we've focused on building web pages that are modern, unique, fast and mobile friendly.
Every website is created from the ground up by our design team with the goal of generating your business leads. We work closely with our clients to determine their vision, and bring it to life!
Our clients can make quick and easy text and image alterations at any time with the use of our intuitive CMS. (Content Management System)
Our sites are built from the phone outwards. Each website is constructed with mobilized versions for phones, tablets and desktops.
Every site is developed with advanced measures to ensure extremely fast load times while providing a streamlined experience for customers to both navigate your site and submit information safely.
Typically we can have a site completely launched and ready to go in 1 -2 weeks. Things like page quantity, website size, and most commonly, the time it takes for clients to send in their content, can add development time. That said, customers in need of a site ASAP can make a priority request and we can aim to hit any important deadline!
Websites can reasonably range anywhere from $500 - $10,000+ depending on where you get it developed, and your expectation of the quality. Like purchasing art, some artists can paint you a picture very quickly and charge you very little that you can still hang on your wall. While notorious, professional artists will likely charge 10x as much for a much higher quality version.
As both everyday consumers and developers, we aim to be as reasonably priced as possible and service any project no matter the budget. We've done projects for both previously mentioned price points, but the quality is indistinguishable. Talk to us today, tell us your goals with both your site and budget, and we can be flexible to fit almost anything!
This is perhaps the most common line of questioning we receive. SEO or Search Engine Optimization is a very difficult thing to explain to someone without an intermediate or better understanding of browser competition, but here is the jidst of it!
*Whether your a customer of us or not, if you'd like a detailed explanation of SEO, please give us a shout and we'd be more than happy to talk it through!
For the purpose of this small website box, here is a very limited exploration of proper SEO:
High search rankings are largely built by focusing on three major categories: Credibility, Traffic and Referral.
Or in other words:
Proper site security (and sucking up to Google and other major web browsers), a large number of website visitors, and as many links from outside sources as possible. For new and existing sites, these are pivotal attributes to listing highly in the categories you'd like on Google.
