The Recipe to a Great Website

Let’s be honest, there are many ways to make a quick, cheap website these days…that will look like every other quick, cheap website. With so many drag and drop options, any business owner can feel like they have a professional site, or a site that “does everything they need it to do”. But is this true? The answer is no, there are SO many aspects to a great professional website. Let’s break it down.

1. Brand 

Every great business starts with a memorable logo and brand – the advantage to having one art director is that all your business materials remain consistent, making sure your customers remember your company. Beyond the logo, the color scheme, imagery and fonts must all maintain the same look and feel.

2. Copy

After getting some information about your company, target audience and unique factors, we transform your notes into deliberately targeted copy with call to actions in mind. We tell your business story and convert your site visitors to clients/customers.

3. User Experience

A website is not a wall of text, it’s specially laid out into attention grabbing boxes and columns. We turn information into interesting headlines, subtitles, image boxes, icons, etc, so your information is conveyed without losing potential clientele.

4. Graphics and Imagery

We find and craft for you relevant visuals, unique to your brand. With all custom elements tailor created throughout, your website will look anything but a standard template.

We use the most SEO friendly tools to build your site, integrating your keywords into the code. We assist with Google webmaster registration and keep you in the loop with your analytics. Our websites are optimized, to ensure you’ll be found. Aside from SEO, websites should also utilize hosting services such as knownhost’s vps hosting to generate traffic and enhance sales.
