Your St. Louis products, services and business need to be showcased in the best way possible.
Web designers in St. Louis 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.
The issues we see most often are compatibility problems with certain web browsers and slow page loading times.
Keeping time and cost in mind, a lot of the time we find it more beneficial to build and deploy a new website instead of trying to repair the one you already have. A detailed cost benefit analysis is presented to you so you can make an informed decision on what is best for you and your company.
We are asked this question from time to time. Only in very rare circumstances would a build it yourself website be recommended. 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. 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. How fast your website loads and displays is important. Having total control of where elements are locasted is essential for SEO.
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. You are tied to the provider you choose and cannot take your website anywhere else. 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.
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. Most projects take around 3 months while smaller ones can be completed in is as little as 6 weeks. Planning ahead and having realistic timelines helps. On average larger web development projects easily go into the six month time frame.
An account executive should meet with you prior to the start of any graphic concepts or coding followed by several meetings during the life cycle depending on the size and scope of the project. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
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. It takes a village! As a general rule it takes more than one person to develop a website. It often takes a team of people with different expertise. The products we deliver are built to win because we leverage unique strengths from our team members.

Proper search engine optimization should start from the very first meeting. Proper structure and organization is generally the first step in SEO. Content development is something we help our clients with on an on-going basis. We make sure each article or page produced is high quality and flows with the websites structure. Build it yourself websites are becoming more popular, but lack what we refer to as 'Technical SEO'. It is important that your website's code is built correctly and is optimized for speed and user experience.
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.
