Custom Website Design
With a custom designed website, the sky is the limit. You tell us what design elements you like (from our sites or other sites you’ve seen) and we work with you to create your vision. The home page can have a different design than the content pages, you can have a spiffy photo slideshow, an interactive calendar, or perhaps a professional survey form with the results stored in a database. We can do anything you want with your website!
Select one of our stock designs and have a semi-custom website up fast! The header will be modified to include your title, logo and/or photos you provide and you help choose the colors and background patterns. Or you can peruse our stock designs as a starting point for a fully custom design.
Join the blogging world or simply choose WordPress as a content management system for maintaining your website. We can create a custom WordPress theme for you. For examples of WordPress designs, view our sample WordPress theme and our business WordPress theme.
Do you have data you want web users to be able to query and see displayed on a web page? Perhaps a web survey or online test with the results stored in a database? We create web applications like these in PHP or ASP.NET using MySQL as the storage database.
You can pay us to update your website. Typically, we can make changes within the week. We do not require any maintenance contracts, but we do recommend you “save up” a few updates as we bill in full hours. Here are some options though if you want to maintain your website yourself.
For companies wanting to sell a fewer number of online products and non-profit organizations wanting to collect membership fees and donations online, we recommend PayPal Website Payments. It’s free and PayPay does not require you sell a mininum amount per month. With every item you want to sell online, PayPal generates HTML code that you provide to us and we insert the item code into your product or donation page.
Many web hosts provide web tracking statistics for free. You simply enable the web tracking service from within your web host account. If your host doesn’t offer this service, or if you would prefer an alternative option, you can sign up for Google Analytics. If you want to use Google Analytics, once you sign up, you simply provide us with the resulting Google HTML code and we insert the tracking code into each of your web pages.
We create properly coded web pages with descriptive title and meta tags and submit your site URL to the major search engines. The content you write for your pages is equally important. Make sure your text contains key phrases folks would use to search for your site. If desired, we can help with content editing. Also, the more often other websites link to your site, the higher your site popularity rises, a factor taken into account by search engine algorithms. So don’t be afraid to promote your site!
We are a design company and do not host websites. But we can guide you through the process and help you find an affordable web host where you can register your domain name and set up a hosting account. Check out webhostingsearch.com for a list of web hosts that charge less than $60 a year.
Although we are primarily a web design company, we can also create logos, business cards, brochures, and newletters.
