Yes – design is what we were born to do. It’s in our blood. That and caffeine. And black stuff. At the same time, we’re techy geeks – we have grand amounts of experience in a lot of other areas of the web world. Hosting, domain names, SEO, email marketing, pay-per-click, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
When you have us design and build a site, you’re not just hung out to dry, looking for a domain name and a host. Want to get it out there, on the search engines? We have access to a lot of great white hat sources for backlinks and all the stuff that you either care a lot about or don’t have a clue about. But, that’s what we’re here for – to get you looking good, functioning right and actually SEEN. We’ve got all the resources you need for your site – and we take the worry out of it.
So – some of our services, in specific terms:
We offer a couple of different options here, depending upon your needs. We offer virtual dedicated servers for heavy projects. We’ve found that the vast majority of our clients don’t really need this kind of firepower (or expense.) Virtual dedicated boxes start at $49.99 per month. We offer hosting space on our shared servers starting at $8.95/month. This gets you email tech support (from us,) and since we manage these servers ourselves, you don’t have to worry about maintenance. If you need your own cPanel access or would prefer to “own” your server, we can help you get set up through our preferred hosting partners. That way, you get your server set up right – but you can rest easy knowing that if our hearts pop from caffeine consumption, you’re in complete control.
This is another one of those things that you might not think about when it comes to your web presence. You’re going to need a name. Dot com, net, org – whatever – you’ll need a name and you want it to be a good, sellable and SEO-friendly name. We can handle all that for you. We can research names and make suggestions. We analyze your market and your competitors, and we will help you pick a name that can give you a leg up on Google. Nice! Domain names can either be purchased through us (and kept in your name) or by us (and we manage it for you.) Domain names start at $8.95 per year. But beware – you want to make sure you pick a good name and a good registrar. We have lots of domain name horror stories. Let us help you before you get too far into the process.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO):
Oh, man – this is almost a business unto itself. It’s a tricky, shifting science – but we keep on top of it. Panda/Penguin/whatever – we strive to stay ahead of the curve. Regardless of what anyone tells you – there is NO magic bullet when it comes to search engines. It takes research, it takes knowledge and it takes sticktoitiveness. Mainly, though – it takes good content. It takes making smart decisions with the copy on your site, and the way that the site is set up in the first place. We keep all these things in mind when we design and build a website. We can help you develop content that is not only good for search engines, but good for your consumer. We also offer backlink services, full SEO reports for existing sites as well as SEO makeovers. Not showing up high in Google, Bing or Yahoo!? We can help. Seriously.
This is a touchy, potentially expensive area. PPC can be a great way to drive traffic – but it can also be a huge time and money hole. Done right, with the proper research and methodology, PPC can be a boon to your site – targeted customers, high conversions and money in your pocket. Done wrong, and you’re throwing a lot of money at something that’s giving you very little return. We write and buy ads for Google, Facebook and other areas – and we do it right. We spend more time researching than writing and buying. That’s the way it should be.
Need targeted email lists? Need email designs? Need help managing your lists and getting them consuming your content? We can do that! We have access to very, very targeted email lists. We help you set up and actually USE email management tools. MailChimp, Constant Contact, AWeber – you name it. Once you’re set up, we help you build and write compelling bulk emails. You win!
See, we’re not just a design house. We’re not just website builders. We’re not just marketers. We’re all of them – rolled up in a flaky pastry shell, dipped in butter, wrapped in bacon and dunked in a cup of hot coffee. We not only design and build your site, but we help you get seen, get customers coming back and folks consuming your content. Very, very nice. Ready to take over the world? Yeah – us too.
