Website Development

Professional Websites Done Right

We’ve been building business websites for 25 years – and that’s not a typo. Over that time, we’ve evaluated every platform (think Wix, Squarespace, Shopify, etc), picked the one that will serve 80% of all businesses, and have streamlined the process to build business websites.

When we build a site for you, it’s your site. We’ll always be here to help with hosting and updates, but if you discover some day you need to use a different system elsewhere, it’s easy to move your site or content because we build your site using the most popular website software powering the internet.

Without getting too technical (contact us if you want to talk tech), your site is built using the same system that powers over 35% of the internet including Rolling Stone, Glad, and Vogue. Our store software powers nearly 30% of all e-commerce stores online including Dr. Scholl’s, Burning Man (store, not ticketing), and Nalgene.

Another benefit to the systems we use is the adaptability. Want to add a store? Easy. Facilitate online learning with a learning management system? No problem. Host forums or even create your own social network? We can do that. Better yet, your site can communicate with other providers covering email newsletter distribution, accounting software, inventory management, or text messaging communications.

We can handle all future updates for you or you can teach yourself how to use everything using built-in help systems. We’ve onboarded senior citizens and teenagers – with a little patience, you can make changes without needing help.

Our main goal is to make this process as smooth and painless as possible:

  1. If you don’t have a domain name registered, we work with you to find the perfect domain name, then we handle all the technical aspects of acquiring it and setting it up to reach your future site. This includes creating a domain-branded email address that integrates with a basic Gmail account.
  2. You pick from our professionally designed starter templates and send us any logos and/or color palettes, we build the frame of your site, then we work together for all of the finishing work that turns a template into a customized site.
  3. Hire us to write the content or send your content to us to place on your site before we give you the behind the scenes tour and hand over the keys.

We’ve been doing this for a long time and know what is most likely to look good across a variety of screen sizes, will load quickly so your visitors don’t get distracted, and is designed to make using your site as easy for your visitors as possible.

Let us do the heavy lifting to get you a professional site at an incredible price with minimal stress.

FAQ

From a visitor perspective, as easy as this one! Regarding how easy it is for you to use your site (login, update, add, delete, etc), if you’re comfortable using software like Word/Pages, Excel/Numbers, or PowerPoint/Keynote you can learn to use your site. If you reach a point where you’re feeling in over your head, we are available to discuss your project.

Not from our end! There are three main instances when you might need to spend more:

  1. If you turn your site into a massive file server, we’re likely going to ask for some additional money to help us cover hosting. But if you’re drawing that much traffic, you should have a business model that more than covers hosting costs.
  2. If you don’t already have an email account attached to your domain name, we set you up with an address that can be integrated with Gmail. If you want more addresses or more functionality, you may consider spending ~$15-20 per month on a Google Workspace, Outlook, or Proton account.
  3. You want to integrate a third party tool such as Calendly to handle appointment scheduling. Many services offer a free tier, but if you want their upgrades or for us to set up and maintain your account with your third party tool provider, there will be additional costs.

Except for our Deluxe package, all sites are delivered as a combination of the template you select and the customizations you request. Images and text are filler text, typically latin gibberish. You will want to update this content before sharing your site with others.

With our Deluxe package, send us text and images for up to 10 pages (or products) and we’ll completely build those pages for you.

Securing your visitors data is one of our highest priorities. Starting with you directing your domain name to Cloudflare, your first layer of protection from hackers begins before visitors come close to your site. After Cloudflare has dealt with the worst offenders, we employ server-based security that takes care of anyone who got through Cloudflare. We then utilize a combination of security best practices and site-specific security software to further secure your site from attackers. On our Standard and Deluxe plans, e-commerce payments are handled directly by payment processors such as PayPal or Stripe. All of that is protected by a SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt. Additional steps can be taken if you have special considerations.

Get your new host set up, send us temporary login credentials, and we’ll migrate your site from our host to yours. You may then delete our temporary login credentials. As you will no longer be a paying customer of ours, we will remove our license from the following site software:

It’s nothing personal, we respect intellectual property.

Sure!

  • Your site is hosted on a cloud-optimized virtual private server from UpCloud that we fully manage (WordPress VIP managed hosting is $5,000/month plus $5,000 to get set up).
  • We build your site using WordPress.
  • The base design is provided by Kadence ProKadence Blocks Pro, and Kadence Woo Extras ($163/year value).
  • Expand the existing drag-and-drop layout tool with Qubely Blocks Pro ($39/year).
  • We include form building via Fluent Forms Pro ($59/year value) and tables via Ninja Tables Pro ($49/year value).
  • Search engine and social optimization comes from SEOPress Pro ($39/year value).
  • Automatic image optimization comes from Smush Pro ($72/year value).
  • In case you make a change that breaks something, WP Reset ($79/year value) helps with quick rollbacks while WPVivid ($99/year value) provides complete offsite backups.

Just based on the tools we include to power your website, you’re getting $599 per year of included value. Not bad!

After you have selected your starter template and customizations, credit card payment is securely processed via Stripe and we begin working on your site. As we do the initial build rapidly, we are unable to offer refunds after you’ve ordered unless we are unable to build your site. We then do additional fine-tuning based on your feedback. Before we provide your site login information, automatic recurring payments for your hosting will be set up via Stripe. Annual hosting expenses may be refunded on a pro-rated basis.
