I used to recommend Joomla for larger companies that require a more robust website. Smaller companies where everyone wears many hats I would suggest WordPress because I can train someone that is reasonably Internet savvy how to add pages and pictures in an hour or so. But over the years WorPress’ popularity has all but driven Joomla to the back shelf. I can offer you everything from a simple single page web page starting at $199 (Done with WordPress) to a complete Content Management System based web site including e-commerce.
These websites will be “responsive” in design. That means the website comes ready for cross platform deployment. Or in simpler terms – the site is ready for all viewing platforms. Computers, tablets and smartphones. Grab the far right edge of your browser that this site is in and start to squeeze the browser skinny. As you do that you will see the top menu change and things jump around the site to reconfigure for different sized screens. But just having a great website is like having a great business card stuffed in a drawer.
Today SEO is a MUST. You need to be found on the Internet and SEO and marketing is how that is done. Without it you are dead in the water. I have been incredibly successful in this area as of this writing my previous employer for over the last 3 years has been in the top 3 spots on Google with up to 6 organic returns on the front page out of 9. That is 70% of the worlds largest marketplace on their front page for primary keywords.
Here is what I did for my current client. The days of putting up a website and it going viral are pretty much gone. Sure you will hear about a success once in a while but you have a better chance of hitting the lottery.
I include the basic SEO in your websites and offer a custom marketing packages based on your budget and needs. This gives you more than just a site but a complete branding and marketing package that all you need to do is follow a simple program of updating and you will see the results yourself.
Because of contractual obligations I’ve decided to just give the basic information. I’m happy to discuss details with prospective clients or employers.
