We offer more useful features to improve media, ease of use, security and other important functions than anyone, at a better price range than you will find anywhere.
All of our new websites are affordable Content Management Systems. This means you can manage your site content anytime and from anywhere! Here are some details about our content management systems. We use plugins to add features, and we know which ones work well, how to choose the ones you need, and how to configure them to do the job that you need.
All of our new website projects now include a mobile version. Even our budget sites. Mobile is absolutely blowing up as far as business websites. You need one.
Lightboxes: This is a great way to add images that you can click to expand, allowing you to use high resolution images without taking up a lot of space on your page. You simply add an image, designate it as a thumbnail, then when clicked on, the image expands to full size. You can also title the image. Click the image below to see.
Embedded Google Maps: We can add a large Google Map to your page to help your customers find you. Click here for an example from one of our clients. You can zoom in or out, and click between satellite and standard map views. Click “Get Driving Directions”, then scroll down to see how a site visitor can enter his own location to get turn by turn directions.
Galleries: We can show off your place or business, products or clients in a variety of broadband slideshows and galleries. Click here for a thumbnail driven gallery with captions. Click here for a broadband slideshow gallery. Click here for an elaborate collection of 14 high resolution galleries.
Videos: We can show off your videos by using a really cool grid system or show a large number of video choices by using a pop-up video (click “Video: Discover Who We Are” at the link). We can also shoot, edit and produce your video content.
Text/media editor: We feature a VERY easy to use text editor that can also add video, audio and images to your page. Pasting text from Word adds a lot of unwanted formatting to your page that messes up fonts. Our editor allows you to paste Word content into your page with no formatting.
User Friendly Features
No “Page Not Found” errors: If you are migrating from an old website we can redirect old links to go to your new pages. For budget sites, we set your site up so that any incorrectly typed request goes to your Home page.
Forms: We use the Formidable Pro plugin for online forms. You can use them for sidebar quick contact forms (like the one on the left side of this page) or for everything from order forms with PayPal sales to job applications and much more.
E-Commerce: Richmond Media offers full featured e-commerce systems for online sales. We can configure your shopping cart to sell items online, and you can add, delete and edit the items for sale.
FAQ Pages: Frequently asked questions pages can be very useful for site visitors. Out FAQ pages use a technique that opens an answer by clicking on a question, which greatly reduces the need to scroll on a page. Click here for an example.
Search Engine Optimization: All of our websites include at least basic search engine optimization (SEO). Even our budget websites have meta tags for search engines, and local and regional optimization.
Mobile websites: We can build a custom version of your website specifically for mobile devices. But most small businesses just need a website that looks and functions well on all platforms. That’s what we do.
Social Logins: If you have a blog, our websites let people comment by log in in from the Facebook account, instead of having to fill out another form.
Unauthorized Logins: In the past 2 weeks, our security system has blocked over 60 IP addresses due to unauthorized login attempts for RichmondMedia.com. Our system gives detailed information about every single Googlebot and “human” visitor that visits your website. Your site is scanned daily for problems, and unauthorized logins are blocked and listed.
Captcha: Any Admin login attempts have to submit a “captcha” code, which eliminates almost all “robots’ from attempting to log in.
Image Protection: All of our new sites prevent site visitors from downloading the images on your website.
Automatic Scheduled Backups: All of our websites use an scheduled backup system to protect your website’s data.
Social Media: We can put social sharing and social links on pages, blog posts and pretty much anything that will help you integrate your website with Facebook, Twitter and other social and business media sites. If you haven’t discovered the amazing benefits of adding social media to your site, CLICK HERE for details.
Blogs: We can set up your blog to integrate with other social media to get you attention. By doing this, you don’t have to keep up with a blog, Facebook and Twitter. Every time you post a blog, the headline automatically goes to your social media.
Custom Sidebars: We often use sidebars for search, contact and other functions, so they appear on every page of your site. We can also configure custom sidebars, so every page can have its own resources and features. VERY cool.
Depending upon your individual needs, Richmond Media can customize your system to do whatever will help you attract customers, help them find you, and allow them to interact with your business. CONTACT US for details.
