Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Joplin rather than a developer has shortcomings that just cannot be fixed.
Slow page loading times and compatibility issues are the top issues we run into.

It generally is more cost effective to build a new site versus trying to repair an existing one. 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.
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.

The next phase is where our designers work hand in hand with our developers to make sure every feature will perform as intended on your website. This is known and the design and development phase.
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.

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.
