A word on design
Business owners need to realize that their design is a reflection of their business even if it is not intentional. If you don't care about your design, then your design is telling people that you don't care about your business.
-Marco Suarez

A Few Kind Words
When I started my own business, I knew absolutely nothing about creating a website. Thanks for being so knowledgeable (and patient). I have lost track of the number of compliments I have received, and best of all, it has effectively generated sales, which is the ultimate proof of a job well done.

What can a website do for me?

The answer to this question is neither short nor easy. With a little research and thought you can find hundreds of reasons, but there are a few general statements that may help you realize your needs. First, a website can reach millions of people that might not otherwise be available. Second, customers can view products, services, or whatever you want to share from the comfort of their own home. No matter what type of business you are in, there are ways for you to grow your business, and make money on the internet.

Why does it matter how it looks, as long as it works?

When you receive a visitor to your site, they will instantly perceive the quality of your services or products. The first impression that a customer or potential customer has will come from the appearance of your website. A visitor will be interested and explore your site if it is appealing and easy to navigate. You are marketing yourself and your business to the world over the Internet and it is important to put your best foot forward. Think of this is the initial meeting between you and your prospective client.

I don't think a website will do anything for me. Am I right?

No, many people overlook the various products, services, or business processes that they can include on a website. Any communication or interactions that happen within your business can be made easier and more efficient by the web. Your business will save money and time while appealing to to a much greater audience, the world.

OK, I want to get started - Where to do I begin ?

The four steps below will guide you in the direction to a professionally designed, developed and marketed website. A more detailed outline can also be found on our 'process' page.

Step One: website planning - The first phase of your website project is information gathering and research. We learn more about your business, who your target audience is, your expectations of what the website will do as well as what content you want included in your website (architecture or site map). This is achieved through completion of our 'website Planning Guide' downloadable here.

Step Two: Architecture and Design - This phase includes the finalization of your website architecture (site map) and the design of several unique prototypes (mockups) of your website. Think of these mockups as static 'snapshots' of what your site may look like.

Step Three: website Development - During this process we will create a style guide that will be used throughout the site to ensure the content is delivered in a clean and consistent manner compatible with the most popular browsers. The site will be temporarily hosted on our servers and available for you to view.

Step Four: Deploy - You should be thinking about the marketing of your website as it is being designed. The content of the site needs to reflect the search terms you will want your site to appear on search engines.

Why do I need a logo?

Your business image, and specifically your logo, will have much to do with how your customers think and feel about your business.

Quality logos give your business an immediate air of professionalism. Even if your business is new or less established, a customer will often give the benefit of doubt to a company that looks professional.

Every business eventually competes with others. A unique and professional logo will help your customers distinguish your products and services and help them remember who you are.

Not only will a professional image help you with your customers, it might also help attract key employees.

How will I be able to use my logo?

Web+Grafik will post your original artwork on our website where you will be able to access it for download. Additionally, if requested, Web+Grafik will send you a CD with varying file formats of your finished logo. You can take this CD to any graphics, print or sign shop and they will be able to use your logo as directed by you. If you are a local customer, we have preferred rates with local suppliers so we can extend savings to you for your print needs.

We are confident that your design team at Web+Grafik will meet or exceed your expectations. If after the first round of logo design concepts you are not satisfied with the work, we will refund your deposit, less a $85.00 service fee.

What is CMS?

CMS stands for 'Content Management System'. As the name implies, it allows a user or developer to easily manage the content in your website. This can include headings, written content, imagery and more. Our preferred CMS is Joomla!.

I don't have the time/interest to manage my website. Can you do that?

Certainly. Although the Joomla! CMS is a very intuitive platform from which you can easily manage your new site. We can provide you with the resources to be up and running quickly. Joomla! was designed with the non-technical user in mind. For most things you'll be able to make changes quickly. For more difficult changes, we're always here.
