Your website is a virtual doorway into the sole of your company. It’s the voice of your brand, it’s your most dedicated 24/7 sales champion, and it provides your users with the ultimate reason to become your customers. So its got to be easy for your customers to navigate on their device of choice, and easy for you to manage at the office or on the road.
We’ve been designing websites for more than 15 years using various CMS applications, but today our CMS of choice and specialization is ExpressionEngine. We believe EE to be the top open source CMS solution available for businesses, especially those that would rather spend their money building content than developing and maintaining code. ExpressionEngine is an incredibly flexible CMS solution with a very promising future.
As of November 2017, ExpressionEngine gave up its commercial status and became free open source CMS making it one of the best and most economical CMS applications on the market. EEV5 is available at no charge as are V3, V4 upgrade paths. Never a better time to upgrade your existing EE and never a better time to build a new EE website.
An online presence needs to be more than just a collection of pretty images, seductive colours, cool icons and trendy animations - it needs to be a multi-layered strategic implementation that continuously assesses the competition, refines a position of value, reaches the customer and proves itself through experience and reputation.
Not all businesses experience competitive pressures, in fact, we’ve had a few non-profit clients that have absolutely no competition at all. But no matter what you do, or whether you face stiff competition, your business’s value must be communicated to your customers. We help you define and communicate that value - from the customer’s perspective.
Finding customers, or should we say having your customers find you is not an easy task, especially for new businesses. Every website we build is jam-packed with on-page Search Engine Optimization (SEO), relevant top-of-page content and back-end coding that meets W3C coding standards and Google best practice speed and usability standards. So when your new website is finally launched, it will stand on a strong SEO foundation that will help improve both organic page rank and pay-per-click page rank.
Consumers typically research the-heck-out everything they want to buy on the internet, they rate and rank businesses based on what they see, and what they trust - price and guarantee are big factors, but reputation is also a huge consideration. We help our clients build their online reputation by creating reputable trusted websites and by helping them create a process for customers to easily rate, review and rank their products and services.
Building the perfect website takes time - time to plan - time to create content - time to review. We help you every step of the way and take the burden of writing and supplying content wherever possible. Launch dates help us schedule our tasks efficiently and allows us to allocate sufficient review periods for you. And although we hate to put pressure on our clients, most appreciate a polite nudge to keep everything on track.
We develop website implementation strategies that will get your new or refreshed website up and running quickly, and if budgets restrict your vision or our recommendations, we’ll build a plan that will work for you. We provide ExpressionEngine training with all new ExpressionEngine installations.
When we develop a website for you, our goal is to become a long term partner, appraising you of new developments and trends in the online world, as well as where your competition may be gaining ground. We monitor website activity and make recommendations to help strengthen your position and improve your website rank. Your success is our success!
ExpressionEngine website administration is separated into administration (left), development (right) - no more confusion on where to go for what.
Content is managed by merely filling in the blanks, or editing existing content then saving - no extraneous fields, no content breakups - every input page includes all its components - images, videos, links, phone numbers. And SEO is invisible as required content is captured, optimised and expressed where it’s required for SEO - you don’t even have to think about it.
