Website Design and Implementation

 

We'll analyze your needs, find the right solution, and get your site live so you can get back to business with a new site you can brag about, all the while tracking your visitors so you can continue to improve your web presence.

There was a time when the design of a website was all about picking your favorite colors and a couple nice pictures to match -- those days are long gone.

Your website is the first place most people go when they want to find out more about your organization, and you can't over-emphasize first impressions. This is the place where you can edge out your competition by looking better and by making your case clearly. Whether you're selling a product or promoting a cause, your best chance to hook a customer or convert is right there when they first see your front page. We have been designing websites for over 15 years for commercial, non-profit, and special interest clients, and we can create something perfect for you.

There are a few things to consider when creating a new website embarking on a redesign:

Do you need a Content Management Systems (CMS) A CMS is the back-end that runs the website. Not all sites need a CMS, but many could benefit from it greatly. If your site is going to be updated frequently or by more than one person, you probably need to look into setting up a CMS. If your site will be updated infrequently, you may not need one. We can assess your needs and determine what best fits your needs and your budget. This site is run on the Drupal CMS (other drupal projects). 

Who is your audience? Do you people visit your site regularly? Do you want them to? One of the most important website routines is to keep track of who is visiting your page and why. We can gather metrics on your current site's traffic to help determine its strengths and weaknesses and work to bolster weak areas and build on strong ones through design and content adjustments. We can also work with you to better-market your site both through paid and free avenues.

Does your site need to be secure? Is it? Most websites that don't store personal information don't need special security measures, but even the simplest sites might have information accessible to the general public that shouldn't be. We your site with special client/staff login areas and password-protected access as needed. And if you do have serious security concerns, we can address those as well.

Do you want to sell items or services online? We can outfit your site with a shopping cart/ checkout or online donation forms that allow your customers and clients to pay you conveniently through the website.
