Website Design

Web design is our specialty. We offer custom web design services in Columbus, Ohio.

Your website is an important extension of your business. It is a sales person that never has to sleep or eat. It doesn’t have to be trained and it should be really good at closing a sale. A successful website is one that is both aesthetically pleasing and optimized to increase conversions and your ROI. You are involved in every step of the process from the initial design to review our mockups, to testing the custom features and functionality we develop, to going live. We recognize that your website must accurately represent your business, its philosophy, and your company’s brand so we actually want and need you involved most of the way.

Our process is simple. We begin each new project with a free website consultation to learn the specific details about your project. We work with you to create a project scope tailored to your specifications before design work begins. Once we have your project scope created and a solid understanding of your requirements, we will begin the design and development process. The actual design process typically begins right away with little to no scheduling delays. The turn around time for your a website design usually averages around one week or less.

During the design process, we will contact you to review and proof the mockups we create for color and font choices, layout, positioning, usage of graphics, and overall aesthetics.

From there, your website is converted in to a functioning website, live on a private staging server. The staging server allows you to see your website as it will function before going live to the world. At this point, your website is likely more than half way completed and shortly after, we will begin installing your text copy content and photography.

Once your content is installed, your website will be ready to go live with your approval. Going live to the public is simple and only requires redirecting of your Domain Name Servers (DNS) or alternatively installing the completed website on your server.

Did you know, 87% of search engine users click on the first result when searching online?

We can help your website to rank for targeted keyword phrases of your choice and can even help you find the most popular keywords with the lowest amount of competition.

What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)? SEO is the process of optimizing your website using on-page and off-page optimization techniques. These optimization techniques together create the overall success to get your website ranked on the first page. Some on-page optimization factors include: title tags, link text anchors, heading tags, alt image tags and meta data tags. These are all examples of white hat on-page optimization techniques we use. Robots.txt coding, XML sitemaps, keyword and keyword phrase research and suggestions based on competition, local search engine marketing, social media marketing, external blogs articles and press releases are all examples of what we do beyond basic on-page search engine optimization.

Why might my website need SEO? When your website is created and goes live, it is not guaranteed automatic inclusion into Google, Yahoo! or Bing search results. Many people are unaware that it is up to you, the website owner, to make each search engine aware that your new website exists, to verify that you are the rightful owner and to express which topics your website is most relevant for. Our SEO services make sure that each of the major search engines can properly access, index and most importantly, rank your website.

Can’t I just place a bunch of keywords on my website? Unfortunately, the answer is no. This practice is referred to as keyword stuffing and is heavily frowned upon by major search engines. Trust us, you don’t want to upset the search engine gods. Seriously though, our SEO services go beyond keyword stuffing. We implement a wide array of white-hat only SEO services including keyword research, competition analysis, backlink profile analysis, content strategy, content development, internal navigation structure analysis, external in-bound link building, social media marketing and more.
