We understand that a website is more than just a jumble of links, technical jargon and coded information. A great website establishes a two-way communication between you and your customer. It is your interactive storefront to the world and is a key factor in strengthening your brand. A website doesn’t just sell your product or service but rather uses a mixture of design, content, imagery as well as live action to provide each visitor with an interesting and inviting story about you.
This is why we take the time to sit down with our clients and really dig deep to understand their online business objectives. We want to know as much as we can about you from the beginning and find out what areas of your business your website should focus on most, whether it be your product videos, customer testimonials and case studies, a niche service or a combination of strengths.
After we’ve established a good understanding of your goals we build our first template and incorporate all the information we’ve collected from you making sure the areas of focus we discussed are brought into the forefront of the website. From there we continue working with you to ensure that the site meets both your standard for excellence as well as our own. At Click2Design we treat the development of each website as if we were developing it for ourselves and we will not stop working until you are as satisfied as we are.
Most of the websites we develop are database driven meaning we typically integrate an easy to use content management system that allow our clients to make minor changes to their websites themselves after we've completed them. A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.
We have excellent background knowledge and expertise with some of the top rated open source content management and e-commerce systems that allow us to design bold, professional database driven websites for our clients. Our software platforms include:
