Responsive Design

Responsive websites respond to the device they are being viewed on. Text and images rearrange, resize and stack depending on what size browser you are using — a smartphone, a pad, a standard computer monitor — each of these present the content of the website in a different way.

Other features you may want to consider …

Home Page Image Rotation

Your home page is the front door to your company and images help you guide visitors to important pages within the site. An image rotation with captions & custom links, provides you with the ability to display multiple images, promotions, etc – and each “slide” can have its own unique call to action. You can also use an image rotation without captions & links as more of a slideshow to show what your company or group offers.

Contact Form(s)

Your website will come standard with a basic contact form (name, email address & message), and we can absolutely add as many custom contact forms as you like! Membership applications, online surveys, feedback forms, calls-to-action … your forms can contain as many  or as few fields as you want & all the form results will be emailed to you directly.

Events Calendar

If you are an organization, you understand the importance of having a manageable events calendar on your website. One that displays upcoming events and archives them once they have passed. Easily add recurring events, filter by event category, share events easily with Google Calendar, display Google Maps on your event’s page … the list of features goes on.

Ecommerce

cartDo you want to sell products or services online? We can add a feature filled, customizable online storefront and shopping cart to your website.  You’ll love the ease of adding products, changing prices and receiving orders, while your customers will love the ease of shopping in your categorized storefront. Standard integration with PayPal Payments Standard & upgradable to integrate with other payment gateways.

Blog/Updates/Article Section

Whether you call it a Blog, an Article Archive, or simply an area that you can post current news & updates, a categorized Post section is vital to every business and organization. Posts allow you to create content that is archived & can be fed to different areas within the site without creating duplicate content. Keep in mind that the most important element of raising your search rankings is creating relevant content — a Post section allows you to do that in an organized & beneficial way.

Custom Web Fonts

Custom Web Fonts allow us to move away from the standard “Browser Safe Fonts” and design a truly unique website that better ties into your business identity. You can read more about Custom Web Fonts here.

galleryPhoto Galleries

Your site will come standard with the ability to add Photo Galleries using the Lightbox effect. Lightbox displays clickable thumbnail versions of your images that pop up into a larger box & allow the visitor to scroll through. We can also do advanced gallery customizations if you prefer to have your images display in a different way.

Social Media

Social Media is a valuable tool for businesses and organizations. Make it easy for your visitors to share your products & services with their friends by incorporating instant “share” buttons. You can also incorporate your own Social Media feeds into your website.

Analytics – Site Stats

analyticsGoogle Analytics is a service offered by Google that generates detailed statistics & reports about the visits to your website. It is the most widely used website statistics service. The extensive reports show how many visitors came to your site, what pages they visited, how long they stayed, where they came from, and much more. If you’re serious about marketing your site & determining what’s working and what’s not working, installing Google Analytics on your website can provide you with incredibly valuable insights that you would have never have had access to previously.

Ad Server

adsSome businesses and organizations need the ability to manage paid or in-house ads on their site. An Ad Server makes it easy to put a new ad into rotation, remove old ads, set specific dates that ads will appear on the site, view how many impressions & hits each ad has received and more. Note: Ad Servers do not create the ad image files themselves.
