It is vitally important that you showcase your South Bend business, products and services in the best light.
Often times a website that was built by a web designer in South Bend rather than a developer has shortcomings that just cannot be fixed.
The issues we see most often are compatibility problems with certain web browsers and slow page loading times.

This is a question we are asked by our clients and for some businesses a build-it-yourself website is the right move. For others it is most definitely not. There is no shortage of freely available drag and drop website builders. Most of the free solutions monetize their products by placing ads on your website. 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. The goal of most website's is to show up on page one of Google, however the lack of flexibility with do-it-yourself website tools makes this very difficult. 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.
Do-it-yourself website builders do not give you the control you need. Only a custom built website by a professional web developer can achieve the right results. Most website builders that do not run ads require a monthly payment. If you stop paying the monthly fee your website goes away. In essence you are renting your website and have no way of moving your site to another hosting company. 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.
Even the simplest PPC landing page takes time to setup. To properly plan, prepare and execute a website generally takes longer than most people realize.

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.

To build for success we tap into individual strengths for the products we deliver.
