We started this project after hearing from many clients that they could buy a pre-made template sites cheap! Then we actually took a good look at those template systems. That’s why we decided that we could do better. MUCH better. Here’s why.
Pay per month deals sound great, until you realize that you may not own your url, can’t get effective service and your payment never ends. When you stop paying you lose your url and your site goes away. We work to give you everything you need for one price…one that fits your budget.
We found were packages that were very basic in terms of features. Users find it difficult and time consuming to create new pages, add features, blog, or allow users to send files.
We use the WordPress platform. This gives us access to thousands of plugins and features. We can add video, start a blog, create new pages, and do almost anything you like.
We are shocked at how old the technology is for many bargain or “DIY” websites. Many use outdated technology and cannot be seen by mobile devices. The sites themselves are often very narrow in size, which indicates that they were designed years ago when websites were built for old CRT monitors.
Smart phone and tablet users will have a good experience with our websites. Mobile access is very important, and mobile traffic is exploding. Your site will always look great on a smart device, and the features of your website will work.
search engine optimization
This is back end stuff that you cannot be expected to know much about, but here’s an easy to understand example:
One of the things Google looks at is your page title. This appears at the top of the browser window. On a standard template site it will say something like “Welcome | Fred’s Diner”… This is awful when you’re trying to get a high Google ranking. That page title should read something like “Traditional American cuisine in Hampton Roads, VA”. If someone knows the name of your church, why would they Google it? So why would put your church’s name on such an important part of your site? And the word “Welcome” is used on BILLIONS of websites. So why use it on yours?
We also set you up with Google Analytics, and give you access to your site’s performance. You can see where your traffic comes from, where it goes, how long it stays, and more.
We want to provide better service than what you will find from template web design companies. Please allow us the opportunity to discuss ways to outperform these types of offerings. Contact us with any questions you might have.
