Small business websites, customized for optimal function and performance, delivered on-time and in-budget, is our specialty. Website development is not an inexpensive undertaking, but there are those who will build a site on the cheap. Problem is, you get what you pay for.
Competency used to be a common, expected trait when doing business. If one encountered incompetency, it was noticed instantly. Now, more often than not, competence is what gets noticed because it is rare. Sadly, this is especially the case when it comes to web design/developers. Most clients with horrific experiences first tried to save money by getting a “cheap” website, not realizing a new one would be needed in a few months.

The goal for us when building small business websites is to deliver a site the owner can handle after it is launched. Sometimes, that works – other times it is a challenge – either way, we offer the services desired to ensure websites work for our clients.
We go the extra mile to research a client’s business, study their competition, nail down their goals, help them identify the target audience, and understand what functionality will benefit their efforts. This is time-consuming but necessary in order to tailor a website properly. We offer frank advice based on experience throughout and beyond the design/development phase. Ultimate decisions are up to the client, but we make a concentrated effort to give sound guidance based on a long history in this industry.
Above all, our intent is to make the process as painless and effortless as possible for our clients. We are well aware how stressful building small business websites is from a client’s perspective, albeit also exciting. We require no hand-holding. We don’t present a ton of options that require review and decision making clients don’t have time for. We listen, study, analyze, build and deliver a solid website, in record time. We partner with clients and most continue to use our services for many years after that initial site build stress is a distant memory.
For this, we are not the cheapest small business websites developer you will find. We do not take a vague idea or existing site and create what amounts to a useless online brochure. Websites we build have a job to do and we aim to make sure they do it. They are equipped with the best tools for the job, configured and working.
We will keep working with you to refine it for a reasonable period to ensure it works for you. We answer you promptly and always make time for your questions while guiding you to learn to use your site. We offer monthly support plans, but we do not train you to do what we do, nor do we “run your business” for you.
Not many webmasters work this way; instead, they launch your site and you never hear from them again, or they charge for every little tweak. This is the result of building tons of cheap sites, no time to look back and support clients after launch. That is not how we roll.
Our clients typically become friends and we take care of their websites…that is how we roll.
