The first thing to do...
when choosing a web site designer is to visit sites they've created. If you don't like the way they look or function, there's no sense in going any further.
See our portfolio page for examples of our web design.
The clock is ticking
You have 5 seconds to keep a new visitor on your website. We're here to make sure your visitors not only stay longer, but also turn into customers.
Potential customers judge your business by looking at your website. I see lots of companies who's products and services are great, but their website does not convey the same message. In fact, an old looking, or a poorly designed website can hurt your business.
Your competition is a click away
People assume that if your website doesn't look up-to-date and professionally designed, that your products and services are inferior, as well. Since your competition is just a click away, your website has to compel visitors to stay. If it doesn't, they'll go somewhere else.
Mobile Web Design
By the end of 2013, there will be more mobile devices on earth than people. That's over 6 billion mobile devices! More and more customers are using mobile devices to consume online content and shop. The question is, what impact will this have on your business?
It is becoming increasingly important to have a mobile website that can be easily viewed by potential customers.
Many traditional websites do not work well on mobile devices. A site that is difficult to use on a mobile device will not only frustrate visitors, it may send them to the competition.
Do-it-yourself web sites
I have many clients who tried using do-it-yourself websites like GoDaddy, Yahoo, Wix, etc., but came to understand that they weren't getting results.
When it comes to web design I like to use the analogy of playing music—in as little as a few hours, some people can strum a few chords on a guitar and play a simple tune. But, to really play the instrument requires a combination of talent, practice, understanding, and experience. We've been designing websites for small businesses and associations since 1996.
