Custom Website Design

Building Better Websites since 2000

Attention to Detail

When something is as important as your business website, you need a dedicated professional on your side. We hand code each website that we create instead of using something like WordPress, or worse, Wix or any other all-in-one template. Templates like WordPress create thousands of lines of unnecessary code that slows down the performance of your website.

Why is that important? The target load time for your website is 5 seconds. If it takes longer than 7 seconds to load, more than half of your visitors will leave. When seconds matter, you need a professional to make sure each page of your website is optimized correctly.

How do you know if your website has been built correctly? The first thing you can do is look at the front page of your website and view the source code. That will tell you how many lines of code are being used. If you see thousands of lines of code at your website, it's a red flag.

After you look at the source code, you need to take a look at how your website is displayed on ALL devices. Look at the spacing around images, notice the navigation and make sure it doesn't cover up content when it's open on mobile devices, make sure columns aren't too wide or too narrow making your content hard to read and make sure nothing looks out of place. For each mistake that you find, there are many more that you haven't seen.

Website Evaluation Tool

There's actually a very simple tool that you can use that allows you to look at your website on many different mobile devices, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. It's called Chrome DevTools and you can see how I use it while evaluating websites by watching any one of my videos at my YouTube channel here: Website Design Reviews

Before and After Example

Below is a before and after example of a website that we recently re-imagined. Technically, both websites are exactly the same because they have links to the business email, provide the business phone number and describe the services the business offers. However, if you saw these websites side-by-side, which one would you go to if you needed their service?

Professional Service Options

For some people, especially those that are not building a website to represent their business, a website by Wix or WordPress may be okay when quality and attention to detail isn't that important. Business websites need a more professional approach to make sure mistakes aren't made that could hurt your results in the search engines or make a bad first impression on a potential customer.

It has taken many years of training, but we take pride in creating websites that look professional, are easy to navigate and load quickly. And we focus on search engine placement from the beginning by optimizing each website so it can be easily indexed by Google, Yahoo, Bing and other top search engines and directories. More advanced SEO strategies require more effort, a lot more effort in some cases, but at least the basic structure has been optimized correctly from the start.

It doesn't matter if you need a small 4 or 5 page website or if you need a website that may be hundreds or even thousands of pages, our attention to detail combined with over two decades of experience is the right combination to ensure your online success.

Websites for Lawyers

Law firms, more than any other profession, need a website that looks impressive. Potential customers are looking for an established and experienced attorney that will help them through a difficult time. If they aren't impressed by your website, they'll move on before you ever have a chance to tell them about your service.

Websites for Entertainers

It doesn't matter if you're a top magician headlining in Las Vegas, a comedian that travels the country or an entertainer living in Hollywood, I can build a website that shows off your talent. Such websites usually feature an event calendar that you can modify yourself, a photo gallery, online videos and regularly updated press releases. I can also build a dedicated website without contact information that can be used by talent agents.
