Effective Website Design

that sets your business apart

More Useful Stuff:

Already have a website? Revamp it!

A catchy website that demands attention can be the make-or-break touch that's often taken for granted. If you already have the content but are looking for a new and captivating way to present yourself online, don't sell yourself short. Spruce it up with a design that will make all the difference!

MiniSite Design

On the Smaller Side
So you don't need a complicated website with dozens of pages and all the bells and whistles. Perhaps you just need a simple, catchy resume page to help you stand out. Maybe you want a clean, two-page portfolio site to impress potential clients. MiniSites are ideal for individuals and businesses that just don't have a need for larger, intricate websites. Having a website – no matter the size – adds a dimension of professionalism and class that will ensure that you stand out.

Website Maintenance: Designer On Demand

For those who need regular website updates. Help keep your site from going stale by having your very own Designer On Demand… Building a brilliant website is only the first step to effective web design. Sure, your content is on display for everyone to see. But how will people find you? Why will visitors keep coming back?

Maintaining your website is key to successful web design. Updating your content not only aids in Search Engine Optimization, but it keeps people coming back for more. By enlisting in our Designer On Demand program, we will create a package that suits your needs and allows you the most effective number of maintenance hours necessary to ensure that your site is kept fresh, fun and informative. That way, you get to focus on the everyday operations of your business while we make it work online.

Hosting Account Setup

Don't have a domain, email or hosting account yet? Don't worry, we've got you covered! Just mention it when you call us or fill out our Web Design Questionnaire and we'll send you pricing based on your specific needs.

What is a domain name, and how do I choose a good one?

When selecting a domain (also known as a URL) name be sure to select something that is either related to the name of your company and/or the primary keywords for your business. The reason? Search engines can read your domain name, too! For example, a law firm in Florida that specializes in bankruptcy might want the name www.bankruptcyflorida.com.
Also keep in mind you can always register multiple domains for the same website. This way, if a potential visitor accidentally types .net instead of .com, or misspells your company name, you can be sure they'll still reach your site with no problem. Shorter domains are typically better in terms of recall. REMEMBER: You want a domain that is unique, but what good is that if your audience can't remember it?! Trying to keep your domain around 5 syllables is a good rule of thumb to follow.

What is web hosting?

So, you have the domain name. Now what? Time to host. Simply put, web hosting is like paying rent to be on the internet. You're giving the name you registered a "home," a place where people can access your information via the domain name you registered.
