Your home for Stress-Free Web Design

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Web design and development is more than just plugging in content to a template.  It’s building a site to reflect the needs and wants of the individual. It’s attention to detail. Things like proper grammar, spelling and punctuation are lost in today’s online world.  Too much emphasis is placed on automated checkers.  Only human intervention provides the environment for success.

It also means support after the site is made. Real people that can handle real problems. We offer an extended maintenance and support agreement to keep websites up to date and secure. The maintenance subscription is available for both new, and existing sites.

That’s why we are here. We begin by listening to the needs of the customer and tailoring a solution to fit the need. There is no “cookie cutter” solution for design, development, and maintenance, and you should not accept that.

Welcome to the old school way of doing modern technology.

Online College Isn’t a Bad Thing

To Clone or not to Clone…

Customer Service Requires Serviceable Customers

Quality Customer service is what every company should strive to maintain. From the largest conglomerate to the smallest LLC or contractor, without customers there is no business. Regardless of the product, customers want to be treated as if they are the only one...

Is your site secure and functional?

“Updates are over-rated.” “Developers just want to add some new ‘bells and whistles’ to the product making it more flashy.” “What’s the point? It works fine and has for a long time.” “Updates aren’t really needed unless something breaks. Besides, I get updates on my...

“Hey can I pick your brain on something?”

If I had a dollar for every time I heard this I would not need to work a day in my life. What you are being asked is to provide the skills and expertise you have developed for free because of friendship.  Immediately, the guilt factor kicks in and you think, well they...

The continuing saga of dealing with Godaddy Hosting

Here I am.  Another three hours of playing “answer the script” for the Godaddy Hosting expert in the support chat box.  The last time it was because they couldn’t give me access to change mx records for a client that had Office365 email but hosted at Godaddy. Before...

But it worked yesterday!

You wake up in the morning get that first cup of coffee, check your email to see what's going on and find out there is a problem with your website. Surely it's operator error, you think as you fire up the computer to see. And there it is. An error. Or worse yet, a...

The more things change, the more they remain the same.

The beginnings: Korea 1982. I ordered my first computer. A Sinclair ZX-81 with 2K of memory, later expanded with the "RAM Pack" to a whopping 16K. It connected to my 13" black and white TV and I was off and running. I began with building a database in BASIC then moved...
