It is vitally important that you showcase your Oakland business, products and services in the best light.
Web designers in Oakland are great at design, but typically do not know how to properly build a website because they are not developers. An improperly developed website often needs to be re-built from the ground up.
Poor user experience because of how long a page takes to load and because of browser compatibility issues are at the top of the list of problems we see.
The time and effort it takes to repair the issues on poorly built websites does not make financial sense. It generally is more cost effective to build a new site versus trying to repair an existing one. It is important that you understand the costs, timelines and the pros and cons of sticking with your current website or building a new one. We present each client with a detailed analysis to help them make the choice that best matches their goals and budget.
Yes you can. As with most things, just because can doesn’t mean you should. It takes years of experience to understand how to properly plan, develop and deploy a web project. There are many website builders out there that allow you to create smaller website (just a few pages) and host it for a monthly fee. Most of the pre-built templates from these sources allow you to change a color or add a photo in addition they are optimized for mobile devices. If, however, you need a larger site or if you want to use your site as the basis of an SEO project you would do better building a site that you have full control of. Page load speed is becoming a more and more significant part of SEO. Choosing what elements are on your page, and how they are loaded has a direct effect your page speed.
A custom-built website gives you control over these factors, but a website-builder does not. If you don't want ads on your website then you are typically committed to a higher monthly payment. If you stop paying the monthly fee your website will disappear. It is not possible to take the site somewhere else, you are tied to the one provider. Custom built solutions do not allow you to own your site. You have the freedom to choose your web development company and move to any hosting company you like.
It takes longer than people generally realize to build a website. There is planning, preparation and execution. The quickest build is a landing page for PPC AD Campaigns, even the simplest of landing pages still takes time. Small business websites usually run in the 2 to 3 month range. Smaller sites can be done in about half that time frame. Midsize to large web development projects usually take 6 months or longer. The important take away is to set aside a realistic amount of time for the completion of your project.
The size and scope of the project will help dictate how many meetings you will have with your account executive or the team working on your site. Larger projects will see several meetings during development time frame. Meetings are essential for a successful project outcome and can be accomplished in person or remotely.
Stay way from Web Designers. A web designer typically does not have the proper skill set to develop and code your website. Generally their area of expertise stops in the graphical design space. Multiple team members with different sets of skills are required to design and develop a website properly. To build for success we tap into individual strengths for the products we deliver.
The first step is to define a website's goal. Once this is done we break that down into macro goals for each section of a website and plan with purpose.

Every section and component on your website is checked to make sure they are properly coded. We make sure everything works on all screen sizes, has minimum load times and meets your branding guidelines.
SEO starts before any code is written or designs developed. From the first meeting we have search engine optimization in mind and plan out proper structure and organization.

Every piece of code written needs to be optimized for speed and usability across all devices.
