Make a Great First Impression
Are you looking for a web design firm that can create a great website that will represent your brand effectively? At In Good Company Web Design I offer website packages that will fit all your website needs. From a simple blog, to a turnkey website such as your own custom social network, classified ads, or an integrated shopping cart within your custom web design package; I can create a custom website that is suited to your specific needs.
Web design isn’t just about having a a simple website (although there’s nothing wrong with a simple website). Web design about generating a feeling of security, trust, that is representative of your products or services. And to build that trust, your clients need to feel that your website has been professionally crafted. There are other factors that are in play when creating your website. The overall design of your website should be pleasing to the eye. Something that stands out, yet flows together seamlessly. Your website navigation should be easy and effortless making it so that your users never get lost or have to click the “back” browser button. And all the information on the website should be sorted and organized on your website so that it is easy to find.
When planning a web design project, there are yet other factors to consider. Can the website be easily updated, does the web design reflect high rankings in search engines through search engine optimization, and are there extra costs after the web design project is finished and the website is live.
I use the WordPress back-end exclusively for all websites that I design. WordPress is a proven leader as a content management system that includes complete customization, upward scalability, and is safe. Once your web design project is live, you will be able to add extra pages, edit content including pictures, and customize promotional content; without affecting the overall website design.
What about SEO?
Getting higher rankings in search engines is called search engine optimization or SEO. This can be done in a few ways. WordPress includes whats called organic SEO, and that means that the code itself is made cleanly which is reflected in how search engines like Google, ranks your site. The amount of unique content plays the most critical role in ranking you higher in search engines. The more relevant content you have on your website, means higher search engine visibility.
When creating your content, its also important to include keywords that search engines will pick up on. I use an SEO WordPress plugin in all web design projects I create. Its free and easy to use. Its great for website pages that don’t have very much text, and can be used in addition to any great content you already have. This plugin allows you to create a page title, description, and include keywords so that search engines take more notice of your website for each individual page created.
WordPress makes it Easy!
Because I am a web designer that uses only WordPress; once your web design project goes live, there are no additional costs. Included with your completed website will be video tutorials on how to add content and update your website.
I am a web designer that believes in creating websites that are clean, expressive, and simple. When starting on a web design project, I adapt my design intuition to your wants and needs; always keeping in mind the functionality and the goal of your website. No matter which web design package you choose, my goal is to make your website and brand successful. After all, when your website is successful, so is mine.
