Showcasing Kalamazoo your business , your products and your services in the correct way is one of the most important things you can do.
Websites often have fatal issues that simply cannot be fixed when built by a web designer in Kalamazoo.
The first issue we run across is a slow loading web page, and inconsistent user experience across different browsers.
Trying to repair an existing website can often cost more than simply building one correctly from the ground up. We will take the time to analyze your current website and give you a detailed cost benefit analysis so you can make an informed decision.
We are asked this question from time to time. Only in very rare circumstances would a build it yourself website be recommended. Free website builders are made available and often have free hosting as well. These builders typically make their money by putting ads on your website. Generally it is easy for someone without technical knowledge to modify the pre-built templates by adding photos and changing some colors. These pre-built templates work on mobile devices as well. 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. The speed at which your website loads is a critical part of SEO. You need to be able to pick and choose which elements are loaded and how they are developed.
A custom-built website gives you control over these factors, but a website-builder does not. 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. You are tied to the provider you choose and cannot take your website anywhere else. 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.
Planning, preparing, and executing a website takes time. Pages geared toward PPC Ads take time to develop correctly as well. Generally people are surprised how long it takes to do it right. An average project takes about three months with some of our smaller projects taking just over a month. Larger scale web development projects can run six months on the low end. It is critical to allow plenty of time and plan ahead.
It is essential that have at least one meeting with the developer or account executive before starting a web project. The larger the project the more meetings that will be required. This is built into the overall cost of the project. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
You don't want a web designer. They are great at graphical layout but as a general rule they do not have the technical skills required to properly build your website. A team of individuals with unique skill sets is generally needed for proper website design and development. The products we deliver are built to win because we leverage unique strengths from our team members.
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.
The next step is design. Our designers work hand in hand with our developers and we make sure each section of your website is built correctly.
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.
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. The third and most important piece of the puzzle is what we call “Technical SEO”. Our team makes sure the code developed and deployed adheres to best practices such as W3C guidelines and usability guidelines including responsiveness for different screen sizes.
There are best practices when it comes to website design. Items that seem simple, such as the placement of a call to action, can be the determining factor for success. The team you choose to work on your project must have a variety of skill sets and understand that importance of each.
WordPress content management system is a popular solution for a lot of businesses, but there are other routes that can be more effective depending on your objectives.

Because we really are experts in our field, we are not tied to one particular solution. We work with our clients to identify the unique needs of each project before submitting a solution.
