We do old school, dynamic and content management sites. We love WordPress. We can design the site or build based on your existing work or program for your graphic designer. For years we have maintained our clients work and acted as a partner with them for all their internet marketing needs.
Your website will be designed and customized to best suit you and your business, organization or events needs. We build sites with the goal of that site being found on the internet. From the first meeting to the moment you go live we strive to place you organically and make your site be a useful investment.
When our clients are asked questions about their site or, someone try’s to sell them something we will certainly be the advocate and educator and be there for them. Let us talk to the “pesky sales people” and see what they offer. In most cases we were able to accomplish what they offered at a much better price or prove they could do little to assist in your internet marketing effort.
Besides the websites we produce that meet our clients specifications we have over the years added value to our relationships with proper partnerships. Times have changed. The internet is a big specialized place and we have had great success with it on many levels and forms.
In addition to our ability to design and build your custom site many Graphic Artists, Marketing Specialists, Media Managers and others have turned to us over the years to program their work as well.
