Our approach to offering web design services focuses on teaching you what you need to understand and be able to do in order to manage and maintain your own website. Here’s Lesson 1:

The Three Things You Need In Order to Have a Website:

  1. A domain name
  2. A web hosting account 
  3. The content itself —your text, images, etc.

We can help with all three!

We look forward to speaking with you about your website needs, and see how we can help. An initial consultation (by phone, Skype, email or in person) of up to an hour or so is always free, during which time we can clarify what you want and what services you’d like us to provide.

Some clients want us to build their website and then they take care of it 100%; other clients want us to do ongoing maintenance and updates. Either way, we will do all we can to offer you a solution that is affordable and tailored to your needs. Contact us to get started.

We Love WordPress:

Starting back in the 1990s and up until around 2006, almost all the websites we designed and built were custom designs and hand-coded, always using W3C-compliant valid HTML/XHTML, CSS and PHP code.

Since 2006 we have also built many websites using WordPress (WP), and we’ve become quite the converts! There are many advantages to using a CMS (content management system) such as WP; we believe using a CMS is a very smart strategy —especially if you:

WordPress, like most CMS tools, has an intuitive and easy-to-use “WYSIWYG” (What You See is What You Get) visual editor, similar to word processing software. And among the numerous CMS options out there, it’s widely accepted that WP is by far the easiest to learn and most accessible to “regular” non-geek folk. It is the #1 CMS worldwide, with nearly 50% of ALL websites worldwide built with WP! (See trends.builtwith.com/cms for CMS usage statistics.)

All that said, we are still happy to custom build a website to meet your exact design wishes! A non-CMS-based website may be appropriate if your website will be a more static (i.e. infrequesnt changes/updates) “brochure website.” Non-CMS websites do have the advantage of being less prone to hacker attack, since they do not have the active scripting of a CMS.
