Your Baltimore products, services and business need to be showcased in the best way possible.
A Web designer in Baltimore who builds websites often deploy websites with technical issues that simply cannot be fixed.
The first issue we run across is a slow loading web page, and inconsistent user experience across different browsers.
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. To help you make an informed decision we analyze your current website and present you with a cost benefit analysis.
We absolutely do not recommend a build it yourself website. It takes years of experience to plan, develop and deploy a website correctly. 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. How fast your website loads and displays is important. Having total control of where elements are locasted is essential for SEO.
Website builders do not allow for you to do this, but a custom built website allows you to control every detail. You should also remember that once you sign-up to a website-builder, you are locked into their monthly payment for as long as you want the site to appear on the internet. It is not possible to take the site somewhere else, you are tied to the one provider. A professionally built website by an expert web development company gives you the control you need. You are not tied to a particular web host and you can move your website to any provider you choose.
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. Smaller projects generally take 6-8 weeks to complete while average projects generally take around 3 months. Planning ahead and having realistic timelines helps. On average larger web development projects easily go into the six month time frame.
You should plan on having several meetings with the team working on your project or account executive prior to the start of any graphic concepts or coding. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
Avoid Web Designers. Web designers can be great at graphical content but more often than not do not have the necessary skills to properly build a website. Proper website design and development requires a team of individuals with different skill sets. By leveraging individual strengths we deliver a product that is built for success.
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.
Once we identify the goals we move on to the design and development phase. During this time our designers work with our developers to ensure every feature on your website is built to perform.
We assess each component and make sure it is properly coded to minimize page load times, work beautifully across all screen sizes and adheres to our clients branding guidelines.
People often ask when should I start SEO? The SEO process starts before a single line of code is written. Successful search engine optimization starts in the planning phase of a website and is defined by the goals of the project. Every article or page on a website should have a specific purpose. We help our clients with content development and make sure that content flows naturally within your website. One of the most important pieces and is 'Technical SEO'. Code that is developed and deployed needs to meet W3C guidelines. We ensure every piece of code developed works as intended and looks great on all devices.
Basic website design principles have dramatic effects in the success of your project. The web design process can be the factor that determines if your site succeeds or not. The team you choose to work on your project must have a variety of skill sets and understand that importance of each.
There is no shortage of solutions for a given project. WordPress is very popular but it must be deployed by a developer who understands the ins and outs in order to work correctly.
