Let’s make it YOUR website!

Sites we’ve built for people just like you.

We create economical websites that give you total control over your online marketing with a special focus on generating usable leads that are most likely to become paying customers.  While we build new websites and fix old ones so that customers can operate their sites independently, we offer optional “one-stop-shop” professional services and support to help you get the most out of your online marketing.

Fixing existing websites

In addition to building modern, high-performance, low-maintenance websites that require no technical skills to update or extend, we also turn obsolete, high-cost and difficult to maintain “static” websites into dynamic, easy-to-maintain modern websites.

Full-Featured Websites

Full-featured websites including outside graphic design consultation, custom themes, custom code development, and deep collaboration on interface design.

Examples:

Basic Websites

Starter websites for small businesses, academic groups, and individuals! Based on WordPress: popular, modular open-source web software.  Your site might start out small but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Even very large companies and institutions use WordPress. So can you.

Basic Website examples include

Website Updates and Repair

Does your small to medium-size website’s copyright date still says 2010… or 2009… or 2006? Then what else on your site is out of date? I’ll help you convert your old site to a new, easy to edit and extend WordPress website

I will also upgrade existing FrontPage, Dreamweaver, or other HTML-only websites to WordPress. How do you know if it’s a good idea to upgrade your site to WordPress? If the copyright on your website still says 2005 or earlier then it’s probably still a useful site (because you’re still using it) but it’s also probably too hard to update with HTML-only tools.

Economical

Cost-effective, content-focused, leveraging your existing marketing materials including logos, advertising, brochures, and other promotional materials, using self-contained and user-maintainable software.

Total Control

You get to own the site. You or your staff can easily update and extend it. Your website becomes the central hub for online communication including all social media both coming (what other people say) and going (what you say on other social media), customer contacts like Constant Contact DRIP campaign, brochure and other document downloads, blogs and Twitter-like updates, testimonials, customer inquiries.

Focus on bringing you leads

The main purpose of any website has to be to encourage potential customers to contact you and to steer to avoid being contacted by people seeking services that you don’t offer.
