Website Design

We build secure, mobile-friendly websites using WordPress.

Website Design

With over nearly a decade of designing websites, we’ve designed a wide range of different websites including a dental cabinet manufacturing website, a hurricane protection devices  website and various  other industrial company sites,  used car dealerships, bridal shop sites, real estate agent sites, even websites for churches, and many more.

Engagement starts with a conversation to get a good understanding of what your business is about and what you would like your website to accomplish for you. Once we have a reasonably good idea of what you are looking for, we tell you what we can do for you and how much it will cost. Assuming you want to proceed, we will review design options to determine what the ‘look and feel’ of the website will be. We’ll converge on a strawman outline of the site and fine tune it to align with you brand (fonts, colours, logo and so on).

While there are many ways to design websites, we specialize in using WordPress as our CMS. According to Search Engine Journal,  WordPress is used by nearly 40 percent of the websites on the internet. It’s the dominant platform for website design and there are many available options for just about any kind of functionality a business might be looking for. We build responsive, mobile-friendly websites that are secure. 

In addition to website design, we also host and maintain websites on our state of the art Cloudways server.  We provide what we consider to be the best premium security plugin properly configured to keep your website safe, and the fastest premium cache plugin to help ensure your website loads quickly. We backup our websites nightly using Amazon S3 and via another service, monthly (for redundancy). We monitor our websites 24/7, 365 days a year to detect if a website goes offline for any reason using the service Better Uptime . Of course, all our websites load securely via https:// (display the green lock in a browser).  Finally, we configure our sites using Cloudflare Content Delivery Network (CDN) for improved site speed and denial of service (DDoS) protection.

Additionally, it’s one thing to have a website but it’s another thing for people to find your website!  We offer Search Engine Optimization services so that your website will show up high in search engine results and thereby drive traffic to your website. 

We also do Facebook PPC advertising for a number of our clients to further help drive visitors to their websites, as well as a variety of other marketing services including graphic design and email marketing.
