New Website Design, Development & Hosting
We turn your graphic designer's layout, and your content into a professional, attractive website. We install and host your website on a secure, commercial ISP. We maintain local backups for additional security. Drupal provides nearly infinite flexibility to create dynamic websites with pages, menus, slideshows, forms, featured-content, product listings, calendars, facebook and google integration, etc. Client can retain control over content editing.
All our designs are mobile friendly, with Responsive/Adaptive layouts that look great on mobile, tablet and full-sized screen.
Best Practices Backups, Updates & Upgrades
All websites require backups and occasional security and feature updates. Drupal 7 is still our platform of choice for new websites. Drupal 8 will be released by the beginning of 2015. You should start planning for upgrading your Drupal 6 to Drupal 8.
Cleaning up Hacked websites, Spam and Other Problems
Lack of security, obsolete versions or having a poorly-configured website can lead to hackers gaining access to your site. In most cases, your website can be cleaned up through our update/upgrade services and/or else working directly with the database. In the worst cases, content can be exported and re-imported into a clean install.
Search Engine Optimization and Google Placement
Drupal makes it easy to implement a broad, effective SEO strategy. (1) We start with "best-practices" website design in terms of text, layout, menus, and URLs. (2) We make sure your content is available to different kinds of search engines, (3) We work with keywords for specific content tagging. There is no need to pay hundreds of dollars for additional, specialized SEO services, many of which are scams or poor investments.
Website Hosting, On-going Support & Maintenance
It is critical that your website be hosted by a reliable hosting company. We like Bluehost in particular because of its service offerings, ease of administration, great tech support, and speedy response. Some of our clients have used GoDaddy, but we have seen extremely slow websites on their lowest tier. We can work with your hosting company, or handle a new hosting setup ourselves. We are happy to contract on a monthly basis for all updates (security and regular module fixes). Upgrades (major version revisions) will require individual project-by-project estimates.
Social Media Strategies and Marketing
Your website provides a foundation for a comprehensive marketing strategy, which can include Facebook, Google, and Email blasts.
In-House Training for Users & Staff
Drupal is a content management system that separates the roles of Web Designer, System Administrator and Content Editor. Some clients are capable of making small changes to pre-existing pages such as changing a phone-number or adding a new staff person. We can train you or your staff on editing techniques to give you greater control over your website.
