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.

I’m not on LinkedIn to see your cat.

Inexpensive is not inferior

This week we lost our second large client because of the perception that if you don’t charge a lot you obviously aren’t as good. I was actually told point blank that we were too small for thier needs even after three years of building and maintianing multiple website...

Here We Go Again!

GoDaddy is without a doubt the most frustrating part of this job. I am attempting to change DNS entries for sites hosted on Amazon Web Services.  No small feat in and of itself, GoDaddy and AWS are competitors and it’s like the VHS vs Beta wars of the 80’s.  Or...

Are the terms worth the conditions of social media?

Social media has inched its way into every facet of our lives. What began as a glorified dating website is now a primary tool for socialization, relationships, education, politics, and advertising. It truly is a beautiful development in society that any two people...

If architects had to work like Web Developers

I don't remember where I first heard this, but it really hits home... Dear Mr. Architect: Please design and build me a house. I am not quite sure of what I need, so you should use your discretion. My house should have between two and forty-five bedrooms. Just make...

Online College Isn’t a Bad Thing

I saw a piece on the news about online learning that was discussing the problems with students not being able to return to college because of COVID-19. The premise of the piece was that by forcing them to go to college online, they couldn’t learn as much. There was an...

To Clone or not to Clone…

Deciding to clone your competitor's site sounds like a great idea. Find a site you like and make one that looks just like it. That way, you let someone else do all the research on demographics and content and you can just jump right into the mix with a proven...

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...
