1. Mobile-friendly website

Customers are using smartphones and tablets to do a lot more work on the go. A responsive layout adjusts to the many different screen sizes and options available.

2. Search Engine Optimization

There's content and there's "deep content". Deep content is the metadata under the hood of your site that helps your site be easily indexed and found in a web search.

3. Social network integration

Meet your customers where they are. Start a business page on Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest and other communities. Link back to your website, the hub of communication.

4. Brand continuity

This has always been (and should always be) a priority, but especially as businesses reach out in new ways and places, recognition from community to community is more important than ever. Most online communities offer some kind of visual customization, but don't forget that your writing tone also represents your brand. Always use the same voice.

5. Customer interaction

Use your website to get feedback. Let customers post product reviews, use social network "Share" buttons, encourage involvement. Let customers suggest and vote on trends or products. Provide a section where they can upload photos, add comments, show how and where they use your products.

The two ways we design websites

Posted by on in Websites

1) From scratch. We start with a Photoshop layout, slice it up, code it out and add your content with tender, loving care. Totally custom, totally you.

2) From a commercial template. Oh, yes – we said it. Canned design. Why, why, why would we admit to that? Because we're not so big to think that we're the only ones in the world who can design, and we're economical enough to not recreate the wheel. There are some awesome templates out there that might be exactly what you need. (Well, except they look like everyone else's site that uses that template. That's why we always customize it to coordinate with your brand.)

We're all facing tight budgets, which is why you need to get the biggest bang for your buck. Sometimes we need to cut down on design time to put more effort toward marketing strategy. Templates are one way that we can adjust resources to get things off the ground quickly and easily, and affordably.

Either way, we'll ensure that your site will be found in a web search, will be compatible across the myriad of browsers and interfaces in the world today, and will inspire your customers to take action. We'll work with you to find the solution that best fits your needs and budget.
