Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Lakewood rather than a developer has shortcomings that just cannot be fixed.
Poor user experience because of how long a page takes to load and because of browser compatibility issues are at the top of the list of problems we see.
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.
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.
