Building Your Website
Our 7-Step Process

Our Goal is Simple: Help Your Business Succeed!

We believe every person is a business and every business needs a website to help them be more successful. While there are too many things beyond our control that can impact the success of your business for us to be able to guarantee that your website will improve your revenue, a website can help your potential employers, customers and clients become more aware of your presence in the marketplace.

There are many things you have to do correctly to maximize the positive impact of any website. It starts with the correct selection of the right guide who knows all the right steps in the website creation process. With us, as your guide, we help educate you on what you should be included on your business website. This includes the critical items necessary to move up higher in the Google Ranking so that your website is easily found by your target audience. How important it is to keep your website safe from hackers. Why your website must look as good on your mobile phone and tablet as it does on your laptop and desktop by using Responsive Design techniques.

To accomplish these critical goals it is important to have a business process.

Step 1: We Talk, Gather Information, Set Goals

We will start our journey together by talking with you to Discover your business processes, how you want to work together and the goals for your website. Our goal is to tailor the website that is tailored specifically to your business goals. We do not believe that there is a “One Size Fits All” website Plan, so we will work together to reach a written Plan on how to Design your website to help your business succeed.

With our co-developed written Plan, we will Analyze your Competition and Design your website to stand out from your competitors with customized images, content and layout that works equally well on desktops, notebooks, tablets, and phones. Combining stunning visuals with customized solutions will allow your website to spark more productive connections with your customers..

We’ll work with you throughout the entire Plan & Design process to help ensure our mutual desire that your new website reflects your brand, captures your customers’ attention, improves user interactions, and ultimately raises revenues.

Step 2: Wireframe & Sitemap Creation

We use Balsamiq to wire-frame plan your website overall design. A wire-frame is a quick way to rough out the basic outline construct of your website quickly. This ensures that we are both "on the same page" with respect to needs and expectations as quickly as possible.

Step 3: Page Design, Content Creation & Review

We use WordPress – the world’s premier Content-Management-System (CMS) – to Develop your website. Why? Good question. WordPress drives over 30% of the world's websites and it’s growing FAST! We believe it’s essential to use the best of the latest technologies in order to make your website tell your story to your customers in the best way possible.

Step 4: Site Assembly & Coding

Using WordPress in conjunction with the latest HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, Bootstrap, PHP and other state-of-the-art web technologies, we ensure that your website works as you would expect across all modern browsers on desktop, notebook, tablet, and mobile phone devices.

Step 5: Site Testing & Review

As we Develop your website, we constantly Test the website to ensure that is works on all modern browsers. We also Optimize your website using the latest Search-Engine-Optimization (SEO) techniques to help ensure your website will appear as high as possible in searches for your business and business type in your area. We do our best to make sure your website is easily discovered by potential customers so that your business can grow!

Step 6: Site Hosting (Launch)

We will Launch your new website on our high-performance servers or with your current hosting provider. Having a strong website hosting service is Key to your Customer User Experience (UX). Without website visitors (traffic), even the most gorgeous website won’t help your bottom line. Getting to the top of the search engine results isn’t a one-step process. Strong keywords won’t get you far without site ranking and search traffic growth. Maintaining analytics and ranking reports to make sure the trajectory for your site is always looking up.

We Measure all key performance aspects of your new website by installing Analytics – software that allows us to track your website and make improvements based on actual usage. We make continuous adjustments to make sure you get the maximum performance out of your website. For many companies today, this continuous website improvement is the difference between success and failure online.

Step 7: Site Maintenance - Security - Support

When you add one of our Maintenance - Security - Support Plans we keep your website up-to-date with the latest WordPress Core, WordPress Plugins, WordPress Performance Checks, Security fixes to keep your website performing Top-of-Class and protected from the latest viruses and malware. Please choose one of our monthly or annual Website Maintenance - Security - Support - Hosting Plans when you purchase your new website.

Title III - A.D.A. Compliance

What is Title III - A.D.A Compliance?

Title III is the section of Federal Law dealing with Americans with Disability Act. [LINK]

This statute deals with the accessibility many things in the public domain by all individuals covered under the A.D.A. statues.

With respect to your website, as of October 2018, the law is not 100% clear. See this ruling in the 9th District Court of Appeals. [Link]

However, through June of 2018, there were over 1000 pending lawsuits against website owners for not being in compliance with this statute.

You really don't want to be sued - do you?

We build our websites for all of our clients with the A.D.A. C0mpliance in mind.  Sadly, anyone can be sued for any reason - even if there is no merit. Therefore, we can not promise you that a website we build will be interpreted by a judge (or anyone) to be in full compliance with Title III.  However, we believe the design of our website designs follow a set of "Best Practices" we have created which are intended to show good intent.

Personal Brand Website

I teach my clients and students that every person needs to think of themselves as a business - a Brand. In that light, we created our Personal Brand Website. Think of your Personal Brand website as your resume but running on rocket fuel!

In today's world, finding that next great job is a combination of skills, networking, and luck.

The skills part is your school, training, work and life experiences.

The networking part is how many people know you and your great skills.

The luck part is the ability of your next opportunity to find you.

We combine all of these three attributes into your custom Personal Brand Website. We will work with you to build and keep an up-to-date Personal Brand website that will keep you at the top of the list of the Applicant Tracking Software (ATS) systems used by the top 1000 corporations worldwide. We know how to help you create your Personal Brand website based on your Education, Work Experience and Life Experience to bring you to the top of the ATS systems. We take the "Keywords" associated with your skills and help create the supporting content to showcase your experience.

Every Personal Brand Website includes the option for you to write and post to your own Personal Brand Blog. Yes, I know many of you think "I don't have anything to write about" or "I made C's in English, I'm not a writer". While that may or may not be you, everyone can write. We help make it easy. Every month based on your skills, we'll suggest a topic or two that you might want to write about. Now you don't have to write about what we suggest. In fact, you don't have to write about anything at all. Just note that the "networking" part of being found for that next great job is helped by writing a bit each month on a topic in your skills area. Don't worry. We'll help make it easier, but you still have to put your fingers to the keyboard to make it happen. Who knows? You may find you like it!

As part of our Personal Brand Website, we will also create or update your LinkedIn Profile as part of the package. Normally, this is a separate $497 package, but we want to help you find that next great job so that perhaps you will share the story of your successful job search with us. LinkedIn is searched by all the major corporations and headhunters daily for your skills. You may be thinking "I've been on LinkedIn for years and no one has ever reached out to hire me". I'm sure that is 100% true, and I can tell you why that is in most cases.

Your LinkedIn profile likely "sucks".

Don't take that personally. From the LinkedIn profiles I've looked at, that's true of 95%+ of the LinkedIn profiles - even those people with Masters and Ph.D.'s! Like most things in life, there's an "art" to crafting your LinkedIn profile and your Personal Brand Website.

"Wait! Why do I need both an improved LinkedIn Profile and a Personal Brand Website? Isn't LinkedIn enough?

Great question. The answer is "NO!".

LinkedIn is not used by every company or search firm to find candidates. It's not cheap to use is one reason. Your Personal Brand Website will help the ATS systems find you for these cases.

Many companies begin their candidate search by going to their web browser and typing "your skill name" (avionics engineer, brand manager, web developer, salesperson, skilled nurse, etcetera) and see what comes up. Most browsers will default to showing "local matches" first. If you're looking for a new job in your current city, that is great!

But, what if you're looking to move from the Northeast to Silicon Valley? LinkedIn doesn't "help" you let possible hiring companies know this. Our Personal Brand Website does!. In our Relocation section, we let you list all the cities, states and countries you are open to relocating to for the "right opportunity". Guess what? When that recruiter in Silicon Valley does a search on "avionics engineer, brand manager, web developer, salesperson, skilled nurse, or web developer", your name is going to appear just as if you lived down the street from the employer in Silicon Valley.

These are just a few of the great reasons to buy our Personal Brand Website. We hope you agree!

Business Essentials Website

I teach my clients and students that every business needs a website. You need a business website if you're a 'brick-n-mortar' mom and pop business - a Startup getting ready to sell your first product - or a larger established business!

Why?

Great question! Every business that isn't one of the top 3 to 5 in their marketplace is under constant assault by "the big boys".

Starting, building and growing your business is HARD! You need to always be sure you are getting the 'most bang for your buck'. We want to help you be sure of that too. That's why we created the Business Essentials Website.

First, your potential customers need to know you exist, right? They need to understand what problems you can solve for them BEFORE they stop by your brick-n-mortar. People are busy. They need to know where you are. They need to know your business hours. They don't have time to waste driving or calling all over town to find that business with just the right mix of skill sets to solve "their issue".

Our Business Essentials Website handles all those challenges and much more!

We understand Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for websites. We know how to build and optimize your website so that pages open fast - Typically in under 1/2 second (500 ms for you tech nerds). Most of your competitors probably take more like 8.5+ seconds - the industry average. Nobody likes to wait for a webpage to open - neither does Google.

Did you know that Google pushes slow opening web pages further down the search list your potential visitors see when they search for your businesses skills and features? How long does it take for your current home page to open? 5 seconds? 10 seconds 15 seconds? Research has shown that over 50% of potential visitors leave if the web page has not opened within 3 seconds?

Out 1/2 second typical web page, open (load) time sounds pretty good, huh? And that's just the start!

Have you heard the phrase 'Responsive Website'? Don't worry if you haven't. It's a techy term that simply asks whether your website design looks great on not only your desktop or laptop but also looks great on your mobile phone. Nearly 1/3 of all website are built only for desktop use.

That's bad! Why?

Studies have shown that over 80% of all engagement with a business is first (and often only) done through a mobile device. If your website is not built to be 'Responsive' and your competitors are - you lose! This is true even if much of the day-to-day use will be on a desktop or laptop. Users insist on the platforms they interface with being mobile.

Guess who else does? Google. Just like with slow loading web pages, Google will push your business website DOWN the results list if your website is NOT built to be 'Responsive'.

Every business has a set of products and/or services they want to sell to their customers or clients. Providing the right set of visual and written content is part of the key to making this happen - but not all of it. If your business doesn't match the search phrase that your potential client types into their browser when they are looking for the product or service that you sell, you never even get a shot. Maybe your business name did make the search results list - but your business name showed up on page 10 of the search list results. How often do you get past page one of the results, much less to page 3, 5 - or 10?

Our Business Essentials Website can get your business to show on page 1 of Google Search results. Now it won't happen overnight, but in most markets, and with some help from you, we can push your business up to page 1 (or 2). Sounds much better than where you show up now in a typical search, doesn't it?

We know not every business wants to sell their products or services through their website. Selling through your website is what is referred to as eCommerce and it costs more to build and maintain this type of business website. You also have to setup shipping processes and return product processes. We can help you do all of this when you're ready, but we know that many businesses want to start with us Helping Make Your Business Stronger! without taking too big a leap to start. We understand and our Business Essentials Website is designed to Help Make Your Business Stronger!

These are just a few of the great reasons to buy our Business Essentials Website. We hope you agree!
