Custom Website Design
Custom Means Completely Custom
We will work with you to understand the qualities that make your company or organization unique and any special functionality you require in your website. This understanding is fundamental to the original website we’ll create to uniquely represent you on the web.
A custom visual design will be developed for your website. We’ll create page mockups for the various pages and page layouts in your website which you will review. We’ll revise the design based on your feedback.
After you approve your visual design we’ll begin developing a custom WordPress theme for your site and incorporate any custom functionality. We’ll thoroughly test your site to insure that it functions properly and displays properly across all modern browsers and a full range of devices. We’ll make final refinements to your website based on your feedback before your website goes live.
Choose a Quality WordPress Theme
If you need to get your site up fast or if you require a more economical approach, Website Lite might be the right choice for your website. Instead of creating a completely custom design for your site, you can choose from a variety of high quality, commercially available, responsive WordPress themes to provide the design, layout and functionality for your site. A WordPress theme is what gives your site its overall look and feel.
Your logo will be added to the site and changes to fonts, colors and backgrounds can be made to customize the site and coordinate it with your branding. This approach cuts down dramatically on the design and development time of your site and as a result the overall cost.
The Genesis theme framework will be the basis for your website, so you are assured of the same state-of-the-art code, security and search engine visibility as as custom designed website.
Not Your Average Website
Setting up an online store is usually more complicated and more of an investment than the average website project. We have a lot of experience developing online stores and can help you navigate the many decisions that need to be made when setting up an eCommerce website. We can offer completely Custom Website Design as well as our Website Lite for eCommerce websites.
We use the WooCommerce eCommerce extension for developing our WordPress eCommerce sites. According to the developers of WooCommerce, WooCommerce powers 20.1% of all eCommerce websites. The developers of WooCommerce are continuously making improvements and provide excellent support. We can add custom functionality for your eCommerce site if needed. We are experts in configuring your site to properly handle your unique shipping requirements, payment processing, taxes, etc.
Search Engine Optimization
Build it and they will come?
Well, not exactly. Just because you have a website doesn’t mean your website will automatically attract visitors who are interested in what your business offers. Your site will probably have a lot of competition for the same target audience.
Most small business owners know they need to have visibility online, but often lack the time, training or resources to build and manage effective strategies. We can provide you with knowledgeable, honest and affordable help with your online visibility to make sure you are reaching the right audience.
Website Maintenance & Support
Peace of Mind

If you don’t have the time or the desire to perform these website maintenance tasks yourself, we can do them for you.

Domains & Web Hosting
If you need assistance registering a domain for your website we can help you with that. We don’t actually register it for you because it’s important that you own and control your domain, but we can advise you on available domains, domain registrars and step you through the process.
In addition to your domain name you will need hosting for your website. We don’t host on our own servers, but prefer to recommend companies with WordPress hosting as their primary focus—companies that are focused on reliability, customer service and value. Because we specialize in WordPress we like Managed WordPress Hosting that provides your WordPress site with an optimized environment that enhances site speed and security.
