We take the time to understand your business image and industry so that the professional design we develop will satisfy the expectation of your site visitors and meet your online goals.  All of our current designs are responsive to ensure ease of use and accessibility, and each is current with the latest development standards and practices.

Being developers for well over a decade we can work with the earliest HTML versions, to the latest (currently HTML5 with CSS3).   We are well versed in commonly used scripting languages, and we develop our CMS websites using the best commercial PHP themes for WordPress and Joomla, and extend their functionality with the best plugins and components.

Development Options Include:

Our traditional web development service is provided for clients who need a new HTML5 website developed or a full redevelopment of an existing site. This web development option provides for a responsive multi-page layout design or a responsive landing page (responsive designs resize for all viewing resolutions and include a mobile menu for smaller devices).

We provide our clients with an ADA compliant customized layout utilizing the latest coding standards that is optimized for the search engines. Development options include graphical creation and editing, content organization, text copy assistance, dynamic jQuery slideshows, custom forms with auto-responder, image galleries and portfolios, and more.

Development price is defined by the complexity of the layout, the number and type of pages needed, and advanced scripting needs. Since static websites don’t use a database this is the most secure of the web development platforms.

Our dynamic (CMS) web development service is provided for clients who need a Content Management System website developed utilizing the popular WordPress or Joomla platforms. This web development option provides for a responsive multi-page layout or a responsive landing page (responsive designs resize for all viewing resolutions and include a mobile menu for smaller devices).

We provide our clients with an ADA compliant commercial layout utilizing the latest coding standards that is optimized for the search engines. Development options include graphical creation and editing, dynamic jQuery slideshows, custom forms with auto-responder, image galleries and portfolios, content organization, text copy assistance, and more.

CMS websites include an administrative access panel wherein the client, or their agent, can make changes to the pages without the need of a web developer. CMS websites allow for visitor interaction, such as Blogs, Polls, and Forums.  With our CMS websites we include a quality SEO plugin, firewall, virus scan, and spam blocker.

A CMS is a “dynamic” site, which simply means that the page parts (header, body, and footer) are assembled upon viewing, while the text content is stored in a database.  Requires PHP4 compatible Linux hosting environment with MySQL database.

 

Of the self-hosted cart options we prefer to use WooCommerce since it integrates seamlessly with the popular and multi-featured WordPress CMS, has more add-on options to extend its functionality than others, and it is the most popular eCommerce platform on the web (approx. 30% of all online stores) which helps to ensure that it is very secure.  WooCommerce will allow you to customize the look of the cart application to integrate effectively with your website, which most other carts only allow for in very limited ways.

Development price varies per the complexity of the WordPress layout, and is primarily affected by the number and type of pages needed, the number of items to be sold, cart and plugin configuration requirements, and the payment gateway and shipping carrier requirements.

Designed for clients who have an existing non-responsive website, and want to ensure that mobile phone and small tablet users can navigate and access information easily.

A mobile-only website is developed using the JQuery mobile framework, and can be either one-page or multi-page. In most cases mobile-only websites are created when the existing business website is very large and has everything that is needed (except that is not responsive). In this case, the mobile site is created to provide a simpler version of the site that loads only for mobile phones and small tablets (htaccess redirect script is used). Our mobile layouts include an Ajax navigation system that provides animated page transitions, and popular UI widgets such as tool-bars, list-views, buttons with icons, form elements, accordions, collapsibles, and more.

It is important to note that while a mobile-only site can be an effective option for an older site, we recommend a responsive layout so as to avoid a duplicate content penalty, and to save the time/cost of having to build and update two separate websites.

To ensure that our client’s websites stays in top condition we offer an edits and updates service. This provides new and existing clients an inexpensive way to have changes made to their website ($35/hr). This service is provided for both Traditional and CMS websites, graphical design edits and additions, and general SEO optimization of the pages.

Services we often provide include: content additions for pages and blogs, copy-writing, content sourcing, document conversions, image editing (cropping, sizing, repair), video inclusion, newsletter creation, logo and business card creation, and QR codes. We also assist our clients with website files and database backup, malware removal, and security.

Most edits are completed within 24 hours of the request.

Our CMS maintenance and support service is provided to assist our Content Management System clients with database and file backups, timely platform upgrades, theme and plugin updates, firewall and security plugin configuration and monitoring, and Virus/Trojan removal.

We monitor security notifications daily and perform updates once a week. Our price for this service is half-off our standard development rate, and we bill our clients quarterly (every 3-months).
